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 is probably the "best" and sexiest gun I've ever purchased and M4s can suck it. Here is why. I was determined to get a bullpop rifle when I was getting back into airsoft. I also previously sold my ICS SIG 551 so I really wanted a European rifle. It was that, the AUG or the TAVOR.
I went with it after watching videos of the EBB action, which by the way looks and sounds godly. You will want this gun to be fired at your wedding ceremony. The only non-metal part was the handguard which also had a terrible trapdoor system that didn't actually allow you to fit a ninchuck, so you'd have to remove the entire unit off the barrel anyway. The buttpad and cheekrest were made of some high quality army green rubber that amplified the pleasure of wielding it. There was no wobble whatsoever at first. Everything just looked and felt perfect just like in the picture, until I started noticing some slight wobble in the handgaurd.
At the end of the 2nd day of use, I hand it to my friend and the next thing I know the gun falls apart in our hands. The handgard and front sight came completely loose and were now allowed to rotate 360* about the barrel. I identified that the front sight, which is what hold the handguard unit into place, had its tightening screw missing.
But that's not it. Prior to realizing that, I reset the spring and field stripped the gun according to the manual to better understand how the gun held together. I realized it wasn't from the inside, so I put it back together, but during the process, some tiny pin-like parts fell out of the receiver. It was also I monstrous pain to put the whole thing together, it kept catching on something even though it was the only way the put it back together.
After I duct taped the front sight to the barrel, I test fired the gun, only to find out the blowback action was no longer functioning. It still fired well, but I gave up on the lemon and sent it back to Evike. I got a different gun because this L85 was only restocking a month later.'
3 stars because I got 2 major issues right off the bat, but the assembly and build is amazing for the price. I now have an A&K GR300 and still miss my L85 to death.
"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.
