Best L85/SA80?

Post  wOoKiE on Sat Jun 21, 2008 7:50 am

Allo nies, in my vain attempts to recreate the glory days of my youth I've been trying to finish my Para reg loadout with a decent SA80/L85 AEG (Ideally, a GPMG, but anyway-dream on). There seem to be roughly a gazillion of these on the market with varying prices/sights/fps/rates of fire.
Any suggestions on brands?

Also-should I order online (there doesn't seem to be any in Malta) or would that require an import licence. Qalmadonni red tape=the bane of my life

i was looking at that to there are mainly 3 versions star, g&g and army armament

now star is the most expensive reaching $500+ and has some design flows, g&g is around $200 and still it has a design flows that will start once the gun is downgraded since it fires 400fps out of the box (mostly the cock handle will break etc)

now last army armament i read quite alot on this weapon the main problem is, it is made of steel so you have to take care of it with silicone oil and clean it so you prevent rust, it is a clone of the g&g and it took care of 90% of the design flows it had also you have the blowback (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A0caNES3hj8) from the reviews i read only the first batch had a problem becuase someone hurried the company or they would remove there order (thousands of money) but eventually the other batches where all upgraded and everything seems to be quite solid

oh forgot the best part it is pretty cheap can be found at $100-120, the drawbacks of the gun are its piston since all gears are made of metal (from what i read) and the piston is plastic so just a small upgrade and it uses an 18teeth (there is an upgrade for the 16teeth + spacer but you remove the pretension of the spring). it also takes some m4 series mags so it quite good

there might be some problems if you want to place a susat instead of the iron sights though Sad

I am looking forward to this gun but since the uniform is acu ill stick with the acu and not the british loadout except for the weapon

a detailed review on the gearbox and gun: http://www.arniesairsoft.co.uk/forums/index.php?s=dc174ea2e443bfe286020ff3e4adc205&showtopic=109921

you can find quite of few on it from the internet, hope that helps

king int Liquid.

(For someone with a RM looking really 'scary' [whilst firing his '80 with a BFA] as an avatar, that is tongue )

regarding the gears/springs/pistons etc - this is all greek to me lol!
I haven't a clue as to how AEGs work, let alone how to modify them.

looks like this may take some time for me to figure out

lol im not pro either jsut reading stuff up and doing the plus eventually, but if you see the link i gave you above there is how the gear system is so it sort of helps also i read its pretty easy to change the piston incase its is bought but first we need the license XD

that RM will kick paras ass :p

susat is hard to use if you used other scopes before, it is quite a different feeling

its true it fits more on the rifle but i like the new model as well

last time i read it will be released next year unless they pushed the date to this year, i already had taken that into considaration but the estamited price was around 300 sterlings exlcuding shipping (quite a price -_-)

anyway i will check it out again maybe it has been released and reviewed by someone with experience not some stupid kids you find on youtube (14yrs and already running with rifles Sad)

there was also a new brand that will bring the rifle out but it is still undecided when

just remembered the other brnd M.D.S it released a protype on youtube 2006 since then no more information like wtf happened ......

edit: after nearly 30mins i managed to fidn the ICS model for sale: http://www.zerooneairsoft.com/erol/erol.html quite high and no blowback like the army armament one (still the best in my opinion) also i dont think it made a great hit it was a bit difficult to find one and never saw one from any other airsoft sites (army, star and g&g are the common ones)
