Description

This stubby little Sniper Rifle is the next Striker release from Ares, and is the same Ares Striker that we know and love, but in a much more compact package than ever before. Regardless of the super short barrel it still yields a whopping 400FPS and surprising accuracy, especially when using heavyweight BBs. The end of the barrel features a 22mm CW thread should you wish to throw the ARES Striker Suppressor on there. The front also has a quick release sling loop which can be easily removed at the press of a button, to be used in conjunction with the rear lanyard loop to easily carry this compact Sniper Rifle. The handguard is the traditional M-LOK design which can accept M-LOK compatible accessories or adaptors for all sorts of fun setups. The top of the receiver has a 20mm rail as you would expect, allowing you to attach any kind of optic or sight that you want to use, from flip up ironsights to a gigantic telescopic riflescope. The 38rnd magazine sits snug inside the magwell and is released by the paddle style release. The mag needs a good slap to seat properly when trying to change mags in a hurry, thanks to how perfectly it fits inside. The trigger is a hinged design which means there it is very easy to pull initially, letting you know when the trigger is about to 'break' and fire the RIF to release your BB into the wild. On the nearside of the receiver is a cocked/ready indicator which will give you a reminder that the RIF is ready to fire; this is very handy as there is no safety lever on this model. Inside the pistol grip is a set of Allen Keys which are neatly stored away, and come in handy whenever you want to adjust the HOP or remove the handguard.

Included in the box is a 170rnd speedloader to help you load the magazines, and to assist in carrying four a half magazines-worth of extra BBs in the field in a compact space. Also included is a 38rnd stubby magazine as well as a cleaning/unjamming rod for servicing.

If you want the ability to reach out and engage at longer distances on bolt-action Sniper Rifle rulesets, but don't want it to take up much space or weight on your equipment, the Ares Amoeba AS03 Sawn Off Sniper Rifle is the perfect addition to your kit.
