ELS-74UN “Silver Brother” Vintage Carbine Replica
GF Custom Division is an idea born in the heads of the Gunfire airsoft team. We want to offer you highest-quality replicas modified and configured by our team using the best, tested parts and accessories. No element of the replica is there for no reason - these are exactly the kind of configurations that we would like to use in the field. In the custom work on replicas helps our many-year airsoft experience and it can be easily summed up that GF Custom Division is a project created in 100% by players for players.
This time we have chosen a durable, made of steel ELS-74UN replica by E&L for customization!
GF Custom Division has the pleasure of presenting a truly unique ELS-74UN “Silver Brother” collector’s edition replica - one of 3 replicas from Brother series - “Copper”, “Silver” and “Golden”.
The visible shining coating is not paint or spray. The replica was not painted in any way! What can be seen on the surface of the entire replica is authentic silver! The replica has undergone professional treatment involving the removal of the original oxidation and covering with a layer silver. We have created a one-of-a-kind and unique collector’s replica. There can be no doubt that “Silver Brother” will look better on display in an office due to the thin and delicate layer of silver coating. What’s interesting is that silver has also been used inside the replica! The replica’s panels and pistol grip were painted in shining black color that additionally stresses its “elitism” and exclusiveness.
E&L Airsoft is a new quality on the airsoft replica market. The manufacturer has decided to create replicas that will resemble live firearm originals as well as possible in terms of material quality and how well parts are aligned together and made strides in that direction as far as possible - by launching production in the very same factory that manufactures live firearms! Replicas were made using the same materials as in originals: steel, hand-finished wood elements or high-quality polymer. Also, some of external parts are identical to those of the original and come off the very same production line.
This allowed E&L to significantly move ahead of its competition among manufacturers from behind the eastern border. It can compete (and win!) with the best brands on the market - also when it comes to prices. Its quality and specification make it not only a beautiful wall decoration but also a very effective field replica.
Outside, a maximum amount of elements that is possible in a replica was made in a 1:1 scale in comparison to the original, according to the military specification. This means that it is possible to change parts between the replica and its live firearm counterpart! This concerns, among others, the handguard, gas pipe cap and iron sights. Little to none other manufacturers offer such possibilities.
Wooden elements have undergone hand processing, which on the one hand assures high quality and on the other hand uniqueness. This model features a wooden handguard and gas pipe cap. One-of-a-kind character was achieved also due to an individual serial number located on the receiver. Steel elements have undergone anodizing, which makes their appearance even more realistic, also sometimes the process of abrasion of the anodizing gives a much better effect than in the case of painted or lacquered replicas.
A great effort was also made to make the replica’s weight as close to that of the original as possible. It is heavy and additionally, a correct balance is guaranteed by a steel, external barrel. Worth noting is without a doubt the option of partial disassembly of the replica, like its live firearm counterpart - without the need for tools. Everything is based on pins and levers. The manufacturer has taken care of the smallest details in order to bring the product as close to the original as possible.
The replica features a steel frame stock foldable to the left side of the receiver.
On the left side of the receiver is a characteristic for this construction “dovetail joint” side mounting rail. It is compatible only with special, dedicated optical sights (also original ones, intended for live firearms) or mounts equipped with a RIS rail, onto which any optical sight of choosing can be later mounted.
All E&L replicas are covered with a thick, technical oil, which safeguards the product during transport against humidity and other possible impurities. A mix of oil, steel and lacquered wood emits a unique smell that is well-known to people having contact with firearms.
The battery is located beneath the dust cover. The cover is held by a single latch, which allows for a rapid disassembly and a change of the power source at any moment.
Also internally the product appears superb. E&L engineers have collected from the market the best solutions and also added some of their own. The pneumatic system consists of a set of a silent piston and cylinder heads, which prolongs the lifetime of the system and provides a better absorption. The replica has a ball-bearing spring guide and the sector gear has an enlarged delayer clip. It provides the BB with more time to be introduced into the chamber, which is especially important when dealing with configurations with a high rate of fire. A high accuracy and tight cone of fire provide the implemented internal barrel with a diameter of 6.04 mm.
What is Generation 2 characteristic for?
Generation 2 replicas are equipped with a new standard gearbox! Most importantly, it received a rapid spring exchange system - Quick Spring Release. It allows for a quick adaptation of the replica’s power to the needs of the User via the main spring exchange without the need to unscrew the gearbox and, as a result, the need to have the access to a workshop or special tools. Once the gearbox has been taken out of the replica’s body, the process of spring change lasts literally mere seconds thanks to a special construction of the shell and the guide.
Generation 2 has a perfected, even more durable gearbox, which in comparison with previous models contains parts that have been replaced with new ones, among others: the shell, gears, cylinder, nozzle, spring guide and wiring. The new solutions guarantee a better reliability, higher ROF and a smaller energy drain.
What components exactly will we find inside E&L Gen 2?
- the new type, reinforced gearbox shell is mounted on 9 mm ball bearings and adapted to the Quick Spring Release system
- ball bearing spring guide QSR (Quick Spring Release)
- a set of steel gears made with the use of precise CNC machines.
- one-piece, steel cylinder made with the use of precise CNC machines
- a sealed nozzle with additional O-ring
- a set of 9 mm ball bearings
- a reinforced, POM piston with three steel teeth
- a muffled piston head
- an efficient High Torque M170 motor on neodymium magnets
- a low-resistance, silver-plated wiring
Generation 2 also features an interesting addition - a magwell spacer for the magazine well, whose implementation realistically simplifies and speeds up the magazine change process!
Replicas come in a brand new, practical and elegant boxes. The boxes are fully filled with a hard foam which safely and firmly holds the replica and all of its accessories in place. Each replica comes with an oilcan, while models featuring a fixed stock additionally come with a cleaning kit, the very same as the one intended for a live firearm.
The replica comes with a Hi-Cap, polymer magazine with a capacity of up to 120 BBs.
The set includes:
- magwell spacer

Magazine Compatibility: the replica is compatible with a majority of magazine types by LCT and MAG, an adaptation of some of CM, Boyi and JG magazines may require minor modifications.
Attention: The set does not include a battery or a charger.
rechargeable battery is characterized by high efficiency
current-carrying capacity, but there are disruptive effect on memory.
Should be unloaded and loaded in the full cycle, ie, it is recommended
to fully discharge, and after unloading must charge the battery
immediately without leaving it for a long time in a discharged state.
Blow back is a simulation system of the cocking lever - it imitates the work of it as the equivalent sharp. This system raises the realism and adds a lot more experience during shooting.

It is the spped of bb, while its leaving the innerbarrel of replica. This speed is measured in FPS (Feet Per Second).
1 FPS = 0,3 m/s
1 J = 99 m/s
1 J = 326,7 FPS
Indications v2, v3, v6 does not mean the level of advance, but only shape of gearbox skeleton which was used and selected by the manufacturer depending on the capabilities of the body of the replica. For example, a models of the M4/M16 family, MP5, have a v2 gearbox, while the AK family have gearbox v3.
Hop-Up system is used for overclocking bb during the shot (putting it in rotation), through which, it extends its flight path. Acting laws of physics make that bb lift up, while the gravitational force take it down. Appropriate adjustment of Hop-Up, will compensate for these two factors, which result in long and straight flight for longer distance and be greater focus shot (to improve accuracy).
