R5 carbine replica - tan
Another replica designed by the WE company which introduces a number of innovative technical solutions and which sets a new standard in the airsoft AEG type replicas.
Just like it is seen in the previous models of this company, the replica is made of a homogenous alloy of zinc and aluminum, steel and high quality nylon plastic. It characterizes itself with perfect fitting of the parts and the high level of the make aesthetics. You will not find any loose spots in the replica’s construction – the whole seems to be a solid homogenous piece.
The structurally reinforced nylon which was used in the creation of the front grip, which also holds the battery, the pistol grip and the stock presents itself perfectly among the products of the other manufacturers and similar price level – both ,if it comes to the visual aspect and the durability against mechanical damage.
The monolithic front grip assembly which allows for a full adaptation of the replica to the individual needs of the user is probably the most characteristic visual feature of the replica. It is possible to attach RIS rail segments to the assembly which can be mounted in standard places ( top, bottom, right side, left side ) and also in intermediate settings (left-top, right-bottom, and so on).
The coloristic of the metal elements – of the body, the barrel, the stock’s pipe and also the other minor metal elements – leaves nothing more to be desired.
The inner construction itself is a compromise between innovation and functionality. The main spring release lever which is connected with the firing mode selector lever is on of the interesting and characteristic modifications. Whenever one puts the firing mode to SAFE, the spring is released thanks to which there are no unnecessary frictions inside of the gearbox. This allows to significantly extend the lifespan of the mechanical elements and also to preserve the main spring’s power.
The elements of the pneumatic unit itself are also made with the highest attention to details. The homogenous polycarbonate Hop-Up chamber fulfills its role perfectly: the hop-up adjustment is done just like in any standard replica of this kind – we gain access to the adjustment system after pulling the cocking handle. It is worth mentioning that the bolt carrier’s dummy which covers the adjustment system goes back to its original position after pushing the bolt catch lever.
The reinforced bipartite gearbox which is built on 8mm bearings hides in itself metal thread-wheels and a light polycarbonate piston. The whole is powered by a motor which has got an increased torque.
Thanks to the basic muzzle velocity of about 400 FPS, the replica is perfect to be used on middle distanced operations.
The replica is fully prepared to operate with the LiPo and LiFe batteries.
The replica is equipped with a top 22mm RIS rail, a set of front RIS rails and an adjustable stock. There is a carrying handle mounted on the top RIS rail which is equipped with integrated iron aiming sights. It is possible attach any optical and electronic aiming devices when you take the carrying handle of. Thanks to the adjustable stock which is ended with an anti-skid surfaced stock’s foot it is possible to adapt the replica to the built and preferences of the shooter. The default flash-hider is placed on a 14mm counter-clockwise thread what allows to attach a sound suppressor in its place.
Besides the replica, the set also includes a steel hi-cap type magazine which holds 300 BB pellets.
The set includes:
- the replica,
- a magazine,
- the RIS rails,
