Ares SOC SLR Sniper Rifle (MSR-SOC)

  • Red Dot Laser
  • Bipod & Monopod
  • Futuristic Bullpup Sniper

Based on a prototype Begadi design, this futuristic and sci-fi looking gun is an Airsoft electric sniper rifle! Featuring fully adjustable bipod and cheekrest, an inbuilt monopod, and even an inbuilt and fully functional red dot laser. Combine that with a full alloy external construction, and you get a realistic Airsoft replica that almost breaks the scales at 6.1Kg! 

Full description


An incredibly unique looking 6mm BB Airsoft electric sniper rifle. Despite its out-of-this-world futuristic and sci-fi like appearance, the SOC SLRs origins are based very firmly on planet Earth. Germany, to be precise. Based on a prototype design from 2016, the SOC SLR can be thought of as the spiritual successor to the iconic (if rare) WA-2000 and DSR-1 bullpup rifles, famous for their frequent appearances in movies and video games. 

The SOC SLR is intended to be used as a designated marksman's rifle, or DMR, and is ready for use straight from the box. The gun has been pre-restricted and locked to only fire in semi-automatic, making it suitable for Airsoft Skirmish sites which require DMRs to be semi-automatic only.  A full barrel length upper 20mm RIS rail allows the installation of optics and scopes, 

The Bullpup platform allows for a long barrel in an overall short weapon length, making the SOC SLR a little handier to carry and transport than some of its non-bullpup rivals. ARES have accurately replicated the SOC SLRs externals, resulting in a rock solid AEG constructed largely from alloy, and weighing in at a scale-shattering 6.6KG. With all that weight you'll be wanting to fire from a fixed position, and the SLR has you covered; there's an adjustable monopod built into the grip, and mounted on top of the barrel housing is a WA-2000 style fold-down bipod, which is height and traverse adjustable, allowing users to fire from the most stable platform possible, regardless of the terrain you're shooting from. 

Designed with user comfort in mind, the rifle features an ergonomic grip with molded finger grooves designed to allow you to get the best possible grip on the weapon. The cheekrest is fully height adjustable, ensuring that you will be able to get practical eye-relief with whatever scope you have mouted, and also still aim the SOC SLR if you're wearing full face protection. The fire selector and magazine release are ambidextrous, and there's a fully functional red dot laser in front of the trigger. The Hop-up is fully adjustable, allowing users to tweak range and accuracy performance and use heavy weight BBs for precision shooting. If you're looking for an AEG sniper with a difference, the SOC SLR is an excellent choice.
