Full description


Just like the real L85, this Airsoft replica is a bullpup configuration weapon, with the magazine located behind the trigger. The result is a compact Airsoft gun with a nice long barrel – making it perfect for both outdoor and indoor Airsoft sites.

Army Armaments have opted to recreate the L85A2 as seen in service after 2008 and the adoption of the 20mm RIS 'operations' handguard, as seen used in Afghanistan. Right out of the box users will be able to customise their L85A2 with a wide range of weapon accessories, from foregrips and flashlights, to Airsoft grenade launchers. With four 20mm rails – top, bottom and both sides – that’s a lot of 20mm RIS real estate to play with! The handguard is also the battery storage compartment for the Airsoft replica. On top of this the flash hider is removable from its 14mm CCW threads, allowing you to install all manner of compatible suppressors, silencers or

As you would expect, the unique and unforgettable design features of the real L85A2 have been accurately recreated on this Airsoft replica; it’s unforgettable aesthetic appearance, and RSAF Enfield’s undeniably unique interpretation of an ergonomic control layout, with it’s push-through safety and rear-located fire controls.

The L85 features a 20mm STANAG 'dovetail' type rail for mounting the supplied iron sights/carry handle. The sights are fully adjustable for elevation and windage, and the rear sight has two apertures; a small ‘peep’ hole for precision shooting and a normal ‘open’ battle sight. This rail will also fit the SA80's iconic SUSAT optic. Although this rail is 20mm, please note it will not accept 20mm RIS accessories.

Army Armament have fitted the Airsoft gun with an electronic blowback function, meaning that every time you pull the trigger the gun will simulate recoil. This imparts a satisfying element of realism to the L85 A2, in addition to being very fun! The L85 A2 also features a fully adjustable Hop-up unit, accessible behind the mock cocking handle. Utilising a rotary gear system, the Hop-up allows you to perfect the range and accuracy performance of the Airsoft gun, or compensate for different weights of BB. 

If you’re looking for an affordable Airsoft replica of the L85A2, then this offering by Army Armaments is a practical solution. With a modern 20mm RIS handguard straight out of the box, consistent performance and solid build quality, this Airsoft gun is a brilliant way of adding something British-designed to your Airsoft arsenal.
