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 front sight, the R85A1 is modular and ready to accept the proprietary British SUSAT sight (included with the custom model). The olive drab polymer furniture is durable and realistic. This L85 is not one to miss.
The Custom R85A1 is internally upgraded for higher output, producing around a solid 380 FPS with 0.20g BBs. The internal spring has been changed and the gears have been precision shimmed for reliable, high power output. To top it all off the Custom R85A1 includes a realistic SUSAT style scope to help pull off a believable Brit Kit.

"FYI this weapon is an A1 not an A2 like what is currently used by british forces but a replica of the weapon introduced in the 1980's
"High quality gun, great range and good realism. But then there's the first problem i ran into. The susat scope is gorgeous and has a lighted reticle and everything. It is very easy to get on the rail and easy to tighten up.
Then i look down the scope and shoot the weapon and the cross hair is to the right of where the bb's are traveling and i adjust the sight to the middle of the scope perfectly aligned to the gun. still to the right of the bbs. i make it go all the way over as far as it can and it cannot align with the bbs. it actually cant b an accurate scope. Then i just decided to use just iron sights. and then i look for a safety.
Then the safety stick POPS out the gun. so now there is no safety and the extra 80 dollars i spent to get the scope with it is worthless. I will try to get a refund or replacement to the scope to make up for this.
But i do reccomed the gun entirely, it shoots wel despite the scope and i cant complain any further
The piston has been upgraded, so you don't have to worry about the blowback wearing it down
SUSAT included($100 value)
Battery is a pain to get in and out of the gun
Safety is a little stiff
Highly recommend this gun
