Army Full Steel Metal Body L85A1 / R85A1 Full Size Airsoft AEG Rifle
by Andrew T. Date Added: October 21, 2008
Well I just got this gun and got a chance to tinker around with it. I was very impressed with the finish on this gun for its price--its very heavy, very solid. However, some of that quality was left behind on the hand guard. Its upper half wobbles and creaks a bit. I corrected the wobble as much as I could by bending the tabs closer together so they latch a little tighter to the rest of the hand guard. The blowback action is very satisfying and it can be disable by simply pulling the bolt lever back to its locked position. ROF is horrible, but I'm used to using my lipo powered g36 for cqb, so its something I can live with. However, where it lacks ROF it makes up for with good accuracy with its extra long barrel. One interesting thing about this guns semi auto feature is that the bb is shot out as soon as you pull the trigger, similar to a spring gun, where you don't have to wait for the motor to wind up first. The gearbox is split into an upper and lower half--the upper housing the piston, spring and tappet plate, the lower contains the gears, of course, and is easy to separate. I have evike's newest batch of these guns and one thing I noticed differently about the gearbox compared to others is that the older ones have different, star shaped, bushings for the gears where mine has a traditional round 6mm (I think, didn't measure) bushing. Overall I was amazed at the value for this gun and its pros easily outweigh its cons. I definitely recommend this gun to anyone whose tired of seeing m4's on the field and wants an accurate, metal body gun.
