Good gun. Stamped steel body, blowback (which can easily be disabled), uses normal AR mags, etc...

Only problem is that it doesn't really fit any loadouts unless you're going SAS, or other UK unit.

I may pick one up tomorrow at a trade show I'm going to.

If you could post pics, reports from the show etc...I'd be grateful.

BTW Is it SHOT or something else?

Thanks!

^It's the MTO show, much much much smaller than SHOT. I'll be lucky if there's more than 5 airsoft booths Razz

I did do full coverage of SHOT for USASOC magazine last month.

Check it out in the current issue, www.officialusasocmagazine.com. It's a free download, and it's a lot of content.

I am torn between getting an AEG or a sniper. I don't really have any tactical equipment becasue i don't play as often as i would like. What i mean to say is, i don't really have any kits.

Meh, nothing really notable at the show, so I didn't take any pics. Lots of good prices though!

How do you think this gun would compare to the JG AUG. I like both designs but which do you think is internally better?

The internals of this gun is the only thing im worried about. I want a good solid gun and I know that the AUG and the L85 are good but the internals is the only thing i'm not too sure of. JG is a well known brand but what about the validity of the Army brand?

Internally and externally, the Army is supposed to be one of, if not the best, L85s on the market currently. There are a few reviews on the web, I recommend reading them.

It's blowback though, so you will use a LOT of battery.

Yeah you can turn it off super easily. Flanker Tanker did a video of it on youtube.

not to get ot, but how do you turn it off?

If you like the looks of the gun and it has good internals and externals, go for it!

What about the E1 G3 though? Did you change your mind about that gun?

^You turn it off by pulling the cocking handle back all the way. Super easy, takes less then one second.

Sorry to post on an old topic ,but I have one question. Can you use the AR(M4) carrying handle mounts on this carrying handle or are they not compatible?

Edit: Also do you know what battery size it is? I think it's a 8.4v ,but I'm not sure about the mah.

^It may fit, I'll check it out.

Mine doesn't have the stock battery, so I'm no help there.

What battery did you buy for it?
Also, what are the specifics for the internals (spring guide, spring, bushings, etc.)
Thanks for the help.

I have an intellect mini that will be used in it, once I get a new piston

Search for a review on it for what type of internals is uses, there's on on Retreat.
