Full description


The latest updated re-release of the eagerly awaited popular Airsoft Rifle, the replica of the L1A1 SLR Self-Loading Rifle, an adapted version of the FN FAL, famous around the world for its use in various conflicts such as the Falklands War and First Gulf War, and was used by the British Army up until the 1980s when it was replaced by the L85A1. The weapon is constructed mainly from Alloy, with an Alloy Reciever, Outer Barrel and Internals, with a Polymer Hand Guard, Stock and Grip. The weapon features a true to life Safe / Semi fire select, and an Ambidextrous Magazine Release and a large Trigger Guard for ease of access whilst wearing gloves. The weapon features a Rear Wired Gearbox with a large battery storage compartment inside the stock, allowing the use of large batteries for full day skirmishes, and is accessible by twisting the Butt Plate. The top of the weapon features a flip-down Rear Ironsight which is adjustable for Elevation, and also features a mock Carry Handle and Folding Charging Handle. The weapon features an adjustable Hop-Up unit which adds range and accuracy, which is accessible when the charging handle is to the rear, and is adjustable for a wide variety of BB weights. The SLR also features a front and rear sling loop point allowing the use of two-point slings for carrying the weapon when not in use. The front flash hider also features a bayonet lug, allowing the attachment of Replica L1A1 Bayonets. This is the perfect purchase for any Airsoft Skirmisher looking to do a period loadout, for the reenactors who want the weapon that has eluded them for so many years.
