"Aesthetically this gun is amazing. It's my favorite gun to shoot, and out of the box it gives good enough performance to be fun. Mine was around 380 fps with 25s. This gun struggles to throw heavy BBs at acceptable FPS, but that can be overcome with some upgrades. If you're considering this rifle, go ahead and get it. For the price, it's unmatched.

This is based mostly on the Ares AS 01 Striker rifle, but not all the parts are interchangeable.

Inner Barrel is 550mm and is a standard VSR-10 pattern, as is the bucking. I am using this inner barrel :

And this bucking:

Also these inner barrel spacers, which helped consistency more than I expected:

Stock hop-up chamber is plastic and not well fitted, but Action Army makes a fantastic aluminum one that's 110% worth it. I am running this one:

Upgrading the bolt and trigger is where this gets funky. I got this kit, and the new trigger sear is not at all compatible with the EV 01. The new piston included in the kit is also incompatible. Still, upgrading the spring and spring guide have moved me to 490fps with 25s. I cannot find any compatible trigger kits for the EV01 because it has a different safety than the AS01. I used this kit:

For suppressors, you'll need an adapter. I could not find one on Evike, so I purchased this one (note it's a clockwise thread or positive. Most products are negative, so you'll require a pos to beg adapter also) :

"I've had mine for over a year now, I love the look of the M40 chassis paired with the striker system....

Internals are very upgradable! My opinion, if you want to change the spring, get an upgraded spring guide as well(thicker and has a bearing) I made that mistake the first time and the spring tension caused the piston to jam up in the cylinder... Took 5 times of cleaning to get the metal filings completely out....

I do wish they made the upgradable M40 chassis parts though. No adjustable cheek pad or butt stock, no available M-Lok handguard or anything... You would need the Striker stock for chassis upgrades unfortunately. Or you need to buy the EV02/EV03 for those chassis upgrades.

Overall it's well made and if built correctly, can reach out and touch people at 200+feet!!!! Mine can consistently hit a human size target at 260ft with .40g BBs and Guarder SP-150 spring(among other internal mods)!!!!

Hey Evike!!!! Lets get some M40/EV01 body/chassis/butt stock upgrade parts available!!!!
