z ARES L85 SA80 Grenade Launcher For L85 Series Airsoft AEG Rifle
by Casey S. Date Added: May 23, 2008
Excellent excellent addition to a STAR L85!

Recieved my yesterday and installed it in about 25 minutes(would've took less but took me a while to get my flash hider off lol). Adds a great deal of weight to an already heavy rifle. The action feels very good, and the lock on the tube to hold it in place snaps on with a very satisfying metal "clank". The tube is full metal as far as I've been able to tell.

However, after I installed it, I took it back off to do some work on my hop-up and for some reason I couldn't get the launcher to fit back on. So if you do a lot of work on your L85 be warned, it might take a bit longer to get it seated right.

This kit also does increase your outer barrel length(by a few inches), so a longer inner barrel is an option.

One problem is the sling attachment, the attachment point is very far forward on the launcher, and coupled with the rear mounted sling mount on the gun very near the end of the gun makes for a situation where it requires a VERY long 3 point sling to fit. Its actually kind of awkward, especially with the tube opening to the left gives me alittle trouble, but is really a moot point as far as I'm concerned.

All in all this is an excellent, ableit pricey, addiont to an awesome great gun.

Oh and as far as grenade compatibility, All I ordered was 1 of the King Arms 60rnd grenade, but it works VERY well in this launcher!
