"My $0.02 on the ICS L86.
This is one serious airsoft machine. Opponents will think twice before engaging you and in the right hands this thing will tear up a battlefield. I have had my L86 since 2013. It is very reliable as both a DMR (it has the same barrel length as my Echo 1 M14!) and a light support weapon, if given the right magazines (I use an Echo 1 850 round mag if I play light support). I have modified my L86 with the ICS rail for optics and a rail I have fitted to the right of the gun (I disassembled it and put a polymer M4 hand grip rail in the holes beside the iron sights). Unfortunately, these are the only rail-estate options at the moment that don't require permanent modification to the replica.

Speaking of disassembly, this thing is a piece of cake strip down. It is very easy to maintain the gearbox thanks to a removable spring guide and ICS has built the internals like a tank. It comes pre-installed with an M120 spring, well shimmed and well greased right out of the box. The motor is a short-type ICS Turbo 3000 (which has neodymium magnets like the ones from high end aftermarket motors, such as Lonex).

The back grip can be removed with 1 screw. If you play your cards right you can put it on the front of the grip by attaching a washer to the screw and closing the hand guard. It is tricky but it can be done. Be warned though, it will scratch the plastic.

The flash hider can be removed but it is bulky and longer than normal flash hiders. It is large because the front support rail and the bipod clamp onto it for stability and support.

- Built like a tank.
- It will handle any gearbox upgrade you can put in it.
- Nice external finish, high quality plastic.
- Can hit targets at 150 feet. Longer with some upgrades.
- Scares the snot out of new players
- Receives lots of attention at airsoft fields.
- Looks like a boss when you put rails on it.
- Very easy to use and maintain.
- Disassembly is a piece of cake
- Can adjust FPS without opening the gearbox
- Easy to swap motors
- Takes M4 magazines

- Electric harness design may prevent the use of a MOSFET
- It is power hungry. Be sure to have 2 batteries per all day event.
- I honestly can't think of any other cons...

If you want an airsoft gun that truly catches your attention, can be used as a semi-automatic sniper or spew rounds down the field, and you require nothing but the best out of the amount of money spent in an airsoft gun then the ICS L86 is a serious contender. Don't take my word for it though, take my friend's words for it. They have the scars to prove it lol.

"I have owned this rifle for almost a year now. It is by far my favorite AEG so far. Being a bit power hungry I have installed a few upgrades like a 610mm EDGI barrel, maple leaf and SP140 spring. The internals handled all of it great, and reached 200-250 foot man sized shots.

Solid Externals and internals
adjustable and quick change spring
lightest support gun out there and can run DMR as well
Very crisp trigger mechanism
Extremely easy to work on
Compatible with Version 2 cylinder, cylinder head, piston, and gears.
Battery replacement is very easy

The nozzle is weak and prone to break during gearbox removal and installation
Motor connectors are very weak (easily replaced or soldered though)
Aftermarket flashhiders/mock supressors would require some very creative work to mount
Magazine well is longer than normal. Makes adding drum/box mags challenging
Drum and box magazines are awkward and cumbersome
