Description

The SA-E01 2.0 is a joint venture between Specna Arms and Rock River Arms, who are a Firearms parts and accessories manufacturer based in Colona, Illinois. Not only do you get a robust Rifle with all the features you could ever want, but it features realistic trademarks from a real-world Firearms company.

Out of the box you will notice the exceptional craftsmanship that has gone into the externals, with Aluminium and Steel being used for the majority of the construction, to make it as tough as possible. Where Polymer has been used (Handguard, Pistol Grip and Stock), it is a High Density Polymer that feels great in the hand, and most importantly, can withstand some abuse. The body of the Gun has a Nanocoating Finish that prevents scratches and protects the finish, and the Receiver is adorned with Rock River Arms trademarks. A Unique Serial Number helps identify your Replica, and is further authenticated by a hologram sticker to ensure authenticity.

Externally, the Rifle is a replica of the classic M4A1 Carbine, which means it features the classic old-school (and very cool) Handguard, as well as a Six Position Sliding Crane Stock. The Outer Barrel Assembly has a 14mm CCW Thread which can be used to attach Suppressors, Tracer Units and other Muzzle Devices, and is accessed by simply unscrewing the Flash Hider from the Barrel. The Receiver has a 20mm Rail for installing Optics and Sights, which is used by removing the Carry Handle. The Carry Handle can also either have proprietary Optics mounted directly to it, or any 20mm compatible Sight with an appropriate Carry Handle adapter, if you want to really rock the old-school look. The Carry Handle features an integrated Ironsight which is adjustable for Windage and Elevation, ensuring you can align your Sights and make accurate, aimed shots. 

The Pistol Grip features a QD Access Door that allows you easy and quick access to adjust the Motor should you ever need to. This is much better than having to use a screwdriver and potentially damaging/losing screws. An Ambidextrous Sling Plate sits on the Buffer Tube and lets you connect a Sling from either side of the Gun, which is great news for Left Handed Players. The Six Position Sliding Stock is where your Battery should be housed, and has a Deans Connector inside. A Deans to Mini Tamiya Converter Lead is supplied in the box, so you can continue to use any existing Batteries you may have, but we would recommend using the more efficient Deans connection. The Stock also features a QD Sling Socket for the connection of Quick Release Sling Loops.

Internally, this Gun has a huge range of features that make it a prime choice over other models in its' price range. The first of many uprated components is a 6.03mm Precision Inner Barrel, and a Rotary HOP Unit for fine control over your BB's backspin, allowing for an increase in range and consistency (when using the right BBs and settings). The HOP Unit has a Helium™ Flat HOP Bucking which interacts very evenly with the BB, and makes for excellent and stable lift. As with any premium Specna Model, you have the ORION Gearbox inside, with the updated ESA2™ Quick Change Spring System that allows for rapid Main Spring changes from the Buffer Tube, without having to remove or disassemble the Gearbox. The ORION Gearbox also features, a lightweight Polymer Piston with a Full Steel Rack, double-sealed Piston Head with Bearings, Air-Sealed Nozzle, Double Sealed Cylinder Head, Spring Guide on Bearings, a set of Steel Gears and 8mm Bearings. This is an impressive list, but it doesn't end there...

The main party trick of the Specna Arms SA-E01 Edge 2.0 is the GATE ASTER™ MOSFET, which is a massive step above the GATE X-ASR Module that was included with the previous models. The ASTER™ provides amazing features such as 'Polarity Inversion Protection', which prevents damage from mis-use of Batteries. An Optical Sensor makes for an incredible Trigger Pull (the smallest twitch will fire the Gun, which is great for long-term endurance). The Trigger can also be set to one of 250 sensitivity settings!  This Trigger is paired with the Solar™ Electronic Trigger which has a very pleasant travel and pull, and will take your skirmish-performance to another level. The ASTER™ interacts with the GATE Control Station Application, allowing you to modify your Gun from the comfort of a device or computer, and a handy RGD LED Diode system makes for simply programming. If you want to perform advanced programming, you'll need the GATE USB-Link for full control over the ASTER™ MOSFET.

Included in the box are 2 x 125rnd Mid-Cap Magazines, which are made from a tough Polymer and feature a tessellated 'SA' pattern. These Magazines feed absolutely great, and put you well on your way to a full loadout. If you're looking to achieve absolute top-tier features and quality for a mid-tier price, then all marketing speak aside, you absolutely NEED one of these right now. We're struggling to draw a comparison to any other model that offers this many features at this low of a price point. Specna Arms - smashing it out of the park once again.
