Patterned after the original ArmaLite AR-15, this venerable weapons platform has gone through numerous updates and evolutions through the years to become the go-to choice for military personnel, law enforcement agencies, and civilian shooting enthusiasts alike.

The Special Operations Peculiar MODification (SOPMOD) Block II is an accessory system for the M4A1 carbine comprised of a full length monolithic rail system and a heavier free-floating "SOCOM" profiled barrel. The real life counterpart of this barrel would provide better accuracy versus the original and helps to mitigate heat when firing with a suppressor or when in cyclic.

The Daniel Defense licensed RIS II handguard is a free-floating, two piece, ultra lightweight front rail system. It provides a full length mounting surface for all 20mm Picatinny compatible accessories: From grips, lights, PEQ boxes and anything in between. The handguard system is designed to accommodate an M203 grenade launcher with no special tools required.

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 a 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.

"ok so this will be a detailed review. I will update this review every week

I have had the gun for 3 days now and it’s been very nice. I hate to use the word “ nice “ bc this gun goes beyond that. it’s. Very slick and works like a charm I say use a 11.1v battery a nunchuck battery would be best bc the stock has two lil things in the front of it that you can open and fit a nunchuck into ( I made the decision to use a stick bc the video says it doesn’t fit but it does) their are also open side things inside the stock to fit wires or nunchuck in it.
I use the titan power 11.1v 3000 mah battery with it and it’s shown very good response with it and the gun can handle it like a beast. I also recommend using .28 gram BBs bc they offer the best range and accuracy. My groupIng where very nice and this gun on semi has a crazy response time and on auto it sounds and feels like a hpa. ( THIS AEG WILL CHALLENGE HPA ) this aeg shows that even if you have a hpa does not mean it can’t be challenged. Now for mags.... oh no mags...

I tested this gun with the

Tippman mid caps
Metal high cap
Elite force mid cap
The mid cap that came with it.

The tippman seemed to have a rough time getting in bc it’s too THICC but it fits and it feeds good on semi and auto

The metal high cap feed on both semi and auto

Elite force worked as well

The mid cap it came with works with it as well

Don’t get the Krytac mags bc they don’t like any bbs above .25
I’d say get the G&P mid caps. Please if people who buy this gun have different mid caps write a bloody review bc it would help people. I will update every 1-2 weeks like I said. I have yet to try the different trigger guide stuff but when I do and work our everything I will write about it on here and reddit.

So basic this gun is the meme of “ YES “
Bc it’s just cracked. I think the only thing people won’t like is that it’s heavy but not for me. But for my friend he was like. “ bruh “
I side tracked myself.. another thing is that On the screws that are on the irs ( the screws in the back of the RIS ) had a small bit of rust but I like the feel bc it reminds me of the real M4A1 I shot. So if you like that stuff then that’s a plus but yea over all again this gun is amazing beyond what I expected for a $404 aeg.

Have a good day ! Or night or something..

"awesome gun so far, very picky on mag selection and be aware this is a 14mm negative!!! I wasted $20 on an adapter only to find out it was negative. otherwise, no instructions at all how to set up the mosfet.
