With the 20th century fast approaching and the landscape on conflict rapidly changing the British government felt the need to update their standard issue L1A1 battle rifle to something more suited to the changing face of modern war. Born from this effort came the L85A1 assault rifle, a gas operated selective fire 5.56mm bullpup rifle, designed to fit a variety of combat roles and easier to use in the close quarters environments seen in modern conflict.
The Army L85 is a full metal, steel stamped 7.5lb heavyweight electric blowback AEG that is built like a tank. Featuring a removable carry handle and front sight, the R85A1 is modular and ready to accept the proprietary British SUSAT sight. The olive drab polymer furniture is durable and realistic. This L85 is not one to miss.Dimensions:

"First time shooting out of the box and the bolt jams everytime in fully auto. Works 75% of the time in semi auto. I was looking forward to using this gun but it's horribly unreliable.
"The L85 is my hands down favorite gun by far and to say i couldent use this is sad, the army armament l85 isnt so good its hard to put back together after stripping it. I got one with a non- working blowback and it was easily out proformed by my m4 in range and accuracy but this gun can take a beating and upgrading is easy but im not an upgrade person.
"This is probably the "best" and sexiest gun I've ever purchased and M4s can suck it. Here is why. I was determined to get a bullpop rifle when I was getting back into airsoft. I also previously sold my ICS SIG 551 so I really wanted a European rifle. It was that, the AUG or the TAVOR.
I went with it after watching videos of the EBB action, which by the way looks and sounds godly. You will want this gun to be fired at your wedding ceremony. The only non-metal part was the handguard which also had a terrible trapdoor system that didn't actually allow you to fit a ninchuck, so you'd have to remove the entire unit off the barrel anyway. The buttpad and cheekrest were made of some high quality army green rubber that amplified the pleasure of wielding it. There was no wobble whatsoever at first. Everything just looked and felt perfect just like in the picture, until I started noticing some slight wobble in the handgaurd.
At the end of the 2nd day of use, I hand it to my friend and the next thing I know the gun falls apart in our hands. The handgard and front sight came completely loose and were now allowed to rotate 360* about the barrel. I identified that the front sight, which is what hold the handguard unit into place, had its tightening screw missing.
But that's not it. Prior to realizing that, I reset the spring and field stripped the gun according to the manual to better understand how the gun held together. I realized it wasn't from the inside, so I put it back together, but during the process, some tiny pin-like parts fell out of the receiver. It was also I monstrous pain to put the whole thing together, it kept catching on something even though it was the only way the put it back together.
After I duct taped the front sight to the barrel, I test fired the gun, only to find out the blowback action was no longer functioning. It still fired well, but I gave up on the lemon and sent it back to Evike. I got a different gun because this L85 was only restocking a month later.'
3 stars because I got 2 major issues right off the bat, but the assembly and build is amazing for the price. I now have an A&K GR300 and still miss my L85 to death.
