Description

Designed as a sniper rifle that’s suitable for Airsofters entering the world of sniping, the AS-01 ‘Striker’ is a top-notch design, that’s easy to operate and contains many high quality features not normally found in this price-bracket, such as a Top Down Hop-up unit and a short pull bolt. 

The most notable features are the simplicity of the design which results in an easy to strip and maintain design; the bolt can be removed with a single pin. The AS-01 also uses AEG springs, rather than sniper springs, a feature which allows users to easily replace the spring with a wide range of common AEG springs without modification, safe in the knowledge that their AS-01 will continue to function properly. As an additional safety feature, the AS-01 has a weapon cocked warning marker, which indicates to the user when the weapon has been cocked and is ready to fire. 

The weapon is supplied with a 45 round medium capacity magazine, over double the ammunition capacity compared to most Airsoft sniper rifles. Reloading has been made as easy as possible, thanks to the use of an ambidextrous magazine release and magazine guides in the magazine well. The mag-release operates from the magazine well however, it has also been extended into the trigger guard, allowing users to use their index finger to release the magazine without having to let go of the gun for a quicker reload. 

The weapon chassis has been designed to be as ergonomic as possible, constructed from high strength and light weight polymers, the stock and grip have rounded edges for a comfortable hold, and features a removable grip plate which can be exchanged for other sizes. A standard universal bipod swivel mount is located at the front of the AS-01, allowing for the installation of a wide range of bipods. The outer barrel has a 22mm Clockwise thread for attaching suppressors, when a thread adaptor is used. 

This is the perfect rifle for anyone looking to get into sniping, as it combines many advanced features with a very attractive price tag.
