H&K Full Size SL9 Airsoft AEG Sniper Rifle by Umarex
by john l. Date Added: August 19, 2013
I was always looking for a SL9, and was excited this came out. However it did not come close to a performance gun. Here is why:

The barrel is too long, and is only locked down at the hop up area, which means the inner bore in the silencer is moving freely, this give the gun effective range about 20 feet, at 50 feet the shots will become inconsistent. Also the silencer cannot be removed it is one piece with the outer barrel, which means there is no way to lock down the front of the bore.

The plastic on this gun is pretty good, much like other Ares G36s. The trades saying sl9 and the caliber is great too. It uses custom Ares v3 Gearbox with quick change spring and comes with silver wires, which is expected at this price range.

This seems to be a ripped off version of the old SL9, surely it comes with a nice gearbox, but the external seems to be a bit careless. As being said the silencer cannot be removed they are not even trying to make it seem legit. The hand guard is only 4 vent, original SL9 has 6 and some come with integrated bipod.

This rifle was a disappointment to me, and need a lot of work before it can go on the field to play with other gun.
