Arcturus have smashed it out the park yet again with another Steel and Aluminium constructed AK replica which is built to an incredible standard, and has the performance to back it up.

Full description


Arcturus have made a name for themselves with their attention to detail, highly realistic construction process and the high quality internals they couple with their extremely well-made Airsoft replicas. This latest addition to their line-up is no exception, and has been treated to Pressed Sheet Steel construction, which is how some real-world firearms manufacturers choose to build their products; not only this but the metals have been treated to protect against corrosion. The Polymer used on the pistol grip, magazine, stock and magwell extension are high density, which makes them tough but most importantly: awesome to the touch.

The front of this rifle features the traditional Izhmash style flash hider which is becoming less common, and is a welcome treat to see. Underneath this flash hider is a 14mm CCW thread, to which you can enjoy attaching every kind of compatible suppressor under the sun [to quickly realise that they all look amazing and you can't decide which is best]. We recommend a PBS style suppressor for true authenticity. The railed handguard has 20mm rails above and below, with M-LOK slots on the sides for further rail space if you need it, but to keep down on weight should you not want to make use of them. The handguard is also where you will find your Unique Serial Number, which is hard to overstate the importance of. The receiver features a railed and hinged dust cover which has a 20mm rail ready for your scope to install, the hinge allowing you to access the battery compartment underneath where you'll find a Mini Tamiya connector for attaching your battery. Behind the charging handle is where you will find your Slider Type HOP adjustment to increase your range out of the box, which is best when combined with heavyweight BBs (0.28g or higher). The fire selector on the offside of the receiver has an ergonomic extension to make it easier to operate, and lets the user manipulate it without having to take your eye off the target. The flared magwell extension is a really nice touch to the rifle and makes reloading a magazine much faster and more precise; as it guides your magazine into place you can keep your focus on the battle instead of staring at your replica and getting caught off-guard. Not only this but it adds extra 'chunk' to the receiver which adds to the aggressive styling, but it can be removed if you wish. The pistol grip is an ergonomic Polymer design which keeps to the modern aesthetic of the rifle, is textured to provide ample grip even when wearing gloves, and allows easy access to the motor via a hinged door. The buffer tube at the rear features an ambidextrous sling loop and a six position sliding stock with QD sling sockets on it.

Internally, this rifle features a host of components which means it performs as good as it looks. The quick change spring system will be appreciated by those who play at a number of fields with different power limits, or want to experiment with playing different roles that require a higher power replica. The Microswitch Trigger makes for a very pleasant shooting experience, removes the issue of burnt-out contacts and is coupled with low-resistance wiring to make this replica more than happy to run a LiPo battery. The Nozzle is made with Teflon which has low friction and is great for moving parts, leading to a flawless performance when put together with the metal HOP chamber and 6.01mm tightbore barrel. The cherry on top for this replica is the small Spring Tension Release which can be found next to the trigger. When this is pressed it releases all tension from the spring and returns the gearbox to its' "neutral" state to promote longer life and prevent damage to internals during storage.

Included in the box is a set of flip-up ironsights and two magazines, one of which is a 550rnd High Capacity design and the other is a 120/30rnd selectable capacity Mid-Cap - very useful for those who take part in training or want to challenge themselves by using a realistic capacity. If you want an AK platform rifle which is made as close as possible to the real thing, lets you know it's in your hands with its' colossal weight, with a modern aesthetic and the internals to keep up with the big boys - the Arcturus AK-04 is definitely what you're after.

Special Instructions:

The externals of the replica are metal where they would be on the real world gun. This includes things like the outer barrel, handguard, and receiver. If a real world gun has polymer parts then the gun will still be marked as full metal externals, examples of this would be an M4, where the Stock and Pistol grip are always made from Polymer.
