ASTER V2 is a younger brother of well-known TITAN V2. This world's first 4th generation AEG Control System is destined for V2 gearboxes (including stock, low- and mid-tuned) and even for high-tuned guns (in case of EXPERT firmware).Transform your AEG by replacing trigger contacts with computerized controller equipped with innovative optical sensors. Gain a unique tactical advantage thanks to the extremely fast trigger response and lots of other useful functions. ASTER's smart fuse protects your AEGs battery, motor and the controller, even in case of reverse battery connection. This feature, along with the optical sensors, makes ASTER the most durable drop-in unit on the market. You choose how to configure ASTER - simply via trigger or through USB-Link / Blu-Link* and our advanced GCS app. To enjoy full potential of ASTER, you can upgrade its firmware to ADVANCED or EXPERT.

About EMG

The EMG vision is to manufacture products the world has never seen before; products we would put our name on, and products that hit the spot! "EMG" (Evike Manufacturing Group) was spawned from the realization that if you want something done exactly the way you want it, you need to do it yourself, and we did just that.
We took our 16 years of knowledge as the market's lead retailer, our network of 300+ superior manufacturers, to work with inspiring top innovators in the firearms industry. That combined with the vision to invest into the Airsoft industry, an industry we believe in, EMG was born.

About G&P

G&P is among the oldest Military-simulation and training Airsoft manufacturers in the world. Started as a top combat light provider for law enforcement and military agencies around the world, G&P branched into Airsoft manufacturing with the same belief to never sacrifice quality for lower price. Their motto is visible on every G&P product. Every G&P AEG rifle is hand assembled and individually fine-tuned by top technicians in the industry to match G&P's unparalleled quality and reputation. G&P utilizes CNC precision machining and real-steel finish/coating processes on many of their products.

"Gun was fantastic my first day of using it, lasted me eight months before finally started to give out. There IS pretty much the same gun by EMG that does not have a folding stock that is slightly cheaper, you are paying extra for the folding stock.

GATE Aster made the gun a beast
Stock internals lasted me eight months
Range was great having not upgraded it
Gun took a BEATING and still performed flawlessly

Handguard and stock came in a bit wobbly, had to take it apart to tighten it
Because it's a folding stock, entire stock has to be taken off to plug in battery
Like most stock AEGs with any kind of MOSFET the motors get really hot really quick, definitely suggest upgrading it

"Blown away, works great out of the box. Trigger response is nuts looks are sexy. Everything you need it to do it will do it. This thing is now my magnum opus
