With the 20th century fast approaching and the landscape on conflict rapidly changing the British government felt the need to update their standard issue L1A1 battle rifle to something more suited to the changing face of modern war. Born from this effort came the L85A1 assault rifle, a gas operated selective fire 5.56mm bullpup rifle, designed to fit a variety of combat roles and easier to use in the close quarters environments seen in modern conflict.
The Army L85 is a full metal, steel stamped 7.5lb heavyweight electric blowback AEG that is built like a tank. Featuring a removable carry handle and front sight, the R85A1 is modular and ready to accept the proprietary British SUSAT sight (featured top right). The olive drab polymer furniture is durable and realistic. This L85 is not one to miss.

"This AEG is a bullpul design. The advantage of a bullpul is:
Accuracy: hopup and gearbox unit is located towards the stock so you get a super long barrel without having to need a super long gun.
Portability: The biggest advantage of a bullpul design is its ability to be used with one hand. The gun is very balanced unlike the M4 series. You won't need all two of your hands to aim and shoot with this gun.
Of course, as mentioned in the previous review, if you are used to the way you wind your M4, you will need to adjust the way you wind this gun in battle. I just wind them all before the game.
This is a very realistic looking L85 and very unique looking, which is why its getting a 5 because there are just too many m4 and ak in a game.
"Owned it less than a month and put less than 1000 bbs through it but the gearbox and/or piston is already sparking and jammed. Solid body but worthless internals.
I really liked this rifle when it arrived, despite its damaged flash hider, inability to function in simi auto, and oversized mag well simply for its ergonomics and durable feel.
But at the end of the day it's just a pile of bits. A pretty pile of bits, mind you, but I can't throw a pile of bits at the MG laying down suppressive fire onto my squad from 3 streets over.
"This rifle is amazing it is exactly what I was looking for... well almost. It is still a great replica, the weight, the detail, and the electric blowback. It performs well enough it can keep up to most M4s out there and has the profile of a Submachine gun to boot. If you want something unique or are going for a specific look then you've come to right place this gun is definitely worth the price.
