APS Silver Edge Gearbox Full Metal 12.5" M4 Airsoft AEG Rifle - A-TACS Foliage
The APS Silver Edge 12.5" M4 Airsoft AEG Rifle comes from the factory decked out with a 12.5" metal Keymod style rail system, a full metal receiver, retractable stock tube, APS 45-degree flip-up sights, and APS' new Silver Edge gearbox.
The full metal receiver features stamped trademarks for a realistic look and feel. The full length 20mm top rail is great for any type of optics you decide to use and the 12.5" Keymod style rail comes complete with 3 additional accessory rails for lights, lasers, vertical grip, and other tactical add-ons. A retractable crane stock finishes off the rear of the gun while an aggressive mock compensator finishes off the front.
The all new APS Silver Edge Gearbox utilizes a unique polishing technique to remove burrs and surface imperfections from the gearbox shell. This polishing leads to an incredibly smooth and even finish that will reduce friction and lower the gearbox load. These improvements lead to a more efficient gearbox that will use less power, generate less wear, and allow for the smoothest cycle possible for enhanced performance as well as greatly extending the life of your gearbox.

"Extremely well crafted, razor-sharp accuracy, and very solid build. Only ever had one problem with it and that was the piston stripped but that was because I was shooting in 15° weather. When I got that fixed it is the ultimate tool. Camo is very high-quality and I've had my friends tell me that I'm a lot harder to spot with this camo Then somebody with a regular black M4 Plus I just like, scratch that, love AR-15 style platforms instead of common M4 platforms. All in all very good addition to any experienced Airsofters Arsenal
"The APS Silver-Edge gearbox is one of the highest performing gearbox I have used. The power drain is extremely low right out of the box without any further tuning needed. Highly recommend this series!!
"This is hands down the best gun I have ever owned. I have the Highlander camo which is stunning. It is much bolder than it looks in the picture (in a good way) and I still have not thought of an AO which it would not blend in perfectly. The ROF is perfect and it is very accurate. I use mine with a 9.6 V butterfly battery which fits great tin the stock. THE MOST IMPORTANT POINT THOUGH IS THAT THIS WEAPON IS VERSATILE. It can be used as a regular assault rifle or it can be a DMR all depending on what attachments you put on it- no major upgrades needed.
--------------PS: i'm am being picky with some of the cons-----------------
-FPS- 405 with .28g
-ROF- 15 RPS
-Camo is perfect
-length is perfect (not too long not too short)
-Can be used as DMR
-weight is balanced and not to heavy
-agressive silver barell
- Keymod rail system is sweet
-the 12.5 handgurd feels really good in hands
-kicks good (just enough to not throw off target)
-side mounted iron sights
-ACCURATE is almost an understatement
-comes with QD sling swivel
-comes with a painted hicap matching the paint on your gun
- No big upgrades needed
- Mag catch is easy to get mag into gun (almost no resistance)
-somewhat loud (could be good)
- Not ambidextrous
-bolt pullback mechanism a bit loose (could just be mine- easy fix)
- The metal thing that flips down whenever you adjust the hopup i guess the bolt
guard? anyways, it is close to the mag release button and sometimes puch on
it because it is in the way
-rails are attached with aluminum catches which shatter if overtightened
-iron sights are not useable from side (hopup will curve bullet if gun is tilted)
-the 2 and 1 on the retractable stock cant be reached because of battery
-wires are really long
-a hole is drilled in the stock so you can see what numerical postion your stock is
retracted to, although this hole is right where i lay my cheek and is a tad
-hopup is a bit sensitive (I got mine perfect atfer about 15 mins and can hit the "O"
in a coke can from a measured distance of 230 ft although that was pushing it)
SUGGESTIONS and TIPS:
- I suggest getting an avacado to have a 3 round burst to control the ROF
- A sorbo pad to reduce noise
- Does not need a lipo so jist stick with the 9.6
- Elite Force mags work really well- no feeding issues
- Get an angled grip. I got the stark industries dark earth and it matches color great
- Maybe a battery pouch to give a bit more room for stock retractability
- dont tighten rails too tightly or else the silver thing connecting it to the keymod
rail system will crack
This gun I would definitely recommend to any airsofter (beginer, intermediate, and ESPECIALLY THE ADVANCED PLAYER. APS has been overlooked as a company until not now. If you are not sure what gun to buy, get this one, i swear you wont be disappointed.
