The B & T AIR by ARCHWICK Polymer USW G-17 Conversion Kit is the ultimate add on for your mid or full sized GLOCK replica airsoft pistol. It offers the operator the choice of using the pistol in the traditional way, as well as a converted carbine. The transition takes less than a second, and makes the weapon system more controllable and accurate. With its elaborate design, the chassis can be used with an optic and a weapon light to further increase its effectiveness. The B & T Air by ARCHWICK Polymer USW G-17 Airsoft Carbine Conversion Kit fits most mid and full sized Airsoft Glock Pistols with a standard railed frame.
When designing the USW for airsoft use, we had to overcome a few issues. 1.) On a real GLOCK pistol, there's a removable back plate, B & T's design replaces that backplate with a new one with an integrated charging handle retainer. An Airsoft replica does not have a removable plate, so we had to find another place to mount the charging handle. We came up with a solution that replaces the rear sight instead. 2.) Real Steel Glock Lower Frames are standardized, meaning every GLOCK lower frame has the same rail profile. B & T uses a CNC machined rail adaptor that mounts onto the lower rail. On Airsoft Replicas, different brands would make their rails differently. TM, VFC, KSC, etc, all have slightly different profiles. On our earlier runs, we made CNC rail adaptors to fit the various profiles. On later runs, we came up with a polymer rail adaptor that fits all the different lower grip profiles.
The rest of it is as B & T intended, quality with tight tolerances, and impeccable engineering all around.WHY USW? Why convert a pistol into a carbine?
By integrating your pistol into the USW kit, you have instant performance gains with little to no sacrifice in weight or maneuverability. With the added ability to shoulder the weapon and the use of optics, your accuracy and hit probability increases dramatically.
Additionally, you can also add a suppressor / threaded outer barrel combo, and install a longer inner barrel for increased for even more range and accuracy. Personalize the kit to your performance needs and playing style as needed, the possibilities are endless! And for you Speed QD aficionados out there, you can turn your GBB Pistol into a lightweight SMG powerhouse with the addition of an HPA system and drum magazine.
Compared to a off the shelf GBB SMG, the USW package can be up to 50% lighter, and will allow you to use your existing pistol magazines, which are always cheaper than SMG mags.
