The Italian brand Evolution Airsoft has made a name for itself by providing pre-upgraded AEGs with superb quality externals, giving Airsofters what we always wanted; a gun we don't have to mess with! Though some live for the "thrill" of installing upgrades and hoping they work, for the rest of us, Evolution Airsoft has come through once again! The Smart Airsoft Gun series features the same impressive internals and rock solid externals as previous Carbontech AEGs, but with the new and improved ETS II installed. This AEG is the XS version of the Ghost EMR with the Evolution Airsoft PDW stock installed, making this the most compact offering in the Ghost EMR range and would be a great choice for those looking for a small Airsoft gun that is easy to transport but doesn't compromise on performance.

Full description

Description

The Evolution Airsoft SAG (Smart Airsoft Gun) series is Evolution's attempt to outdo themselves with a new and improved electronic trigger unit, known as the ETS II. The ETS II is fully programmable and can be set for binary fire in semi-auto, ramping semi-auto, i.e. a short press for semi with a long press for full auto, bursts of varying durations and a sniper delay, a function which limits the semi-auto response to allow you to use your SAG as a bolt action sniper rifle. The ETS II also provides low battery protection, saving your battery from damage in case you forget to remove it after a game day, and active braking to protect the circuitry within the internals and prevent the motor from over spinning.

Starting at the tip of the 4-inch outer barrel we can find a bright orange birdcage flash hider which conceals 14mm CCW male threads beneath. Since we are in merry old England, we are not required to have orange tips, but thankfully Evolution has thought of this, and provides an alloy birdcage flash hider in the box! The incredibly short front end of this AEG leaves it without rivals when it comes to CQB AEGs, and will be an asset when things get up close and personal!

The outer barrel is constructed from alloy and is surrounded by Evolution Airsoft's EMR rail system, providing both M-LOK and Picatinny attachment surfaces. The handguard features M-LOK slots at the 3, 6 and 9 o'clock positions, with an additional 20mm Picatinny rail section across the top of the handguard. This allows for a flip-up iron sight to be mounted at the front of the handguard and integrates seamlessly with the 20mm Picatinny receiver rail to allow for longer optical sights and red dot sight magnifier combinations to be used without issues. This combination of M-LOK and Picatinny is a match made in heaven as far as weight savings are concerned and equips the Ghost XS EMR with the flexibility to add accessories whilst keeping its default configuration light and short for rapid snap-shooting and extra manoeuvrability.

The sight setup included with the Ghost EMR comes pre-installed on the rifle's upper rail, but thanks to the 20mm Picatinny attachment method, the sights can easily be removed and swapped out for your preferred sights or left off all together for a minimalist setup. The included sights are a "Troy" inspired flip-up design, with both the front post and rear aperture being surrounded with alloy protective wings intended to prevent the sights from being damaged if scraped. To deploy the sights, simply press the button on the left side of either sight's base, and the sight can be raised by hand. Reversing this process will allow you to fold the sights back down for storage, or for using an optical sight. The front sight can be adjusted for elevation using an AR15 front sight adjustment tool, and the rear sight can be adjusted for windage using the dial on the right side of the sight body. The rear sight provides two apertures to choose from; a fine aperture for daylight use and semi-auto fire, and a wider aperture for use in low light or when hosing the enemy with full auto bursts!

As we reach the receiver we can find a modernised M4/AR15 style design, with all the lumps and bumps we know but with a new, reprofiled, angular look matching the ultra-modern design language expressed by the EMR handguard. The receiver is constructed from Evolution Airsoft's advanced Carbontech polymer, and is rock solid to the touch, with absolutely no flex whatsoever. This means weight in the receiver is kept to an absolute minimum and is even further reduced thanks to the weight-reducing cuts throughout all the usually flat areas of the AR receiver. Carbontech polymer was developed with the intention of providing metal-like strength but with the low weight and high scratch resistance of fibre reinforced polymers, meaning that your Evolution AEG's perfect finish will not be worn down from rubbing against gear, or scratched badly from a spot of clumsiness in the field.

The magazine release of the Ghost XS EMR can be found on the right side of the magazine well, and is surrounded by what is known as the "mag release fence". This protrusion in the receiver is intended to prevent the magazine release from being inadvertently pressed when the rifle rubs against gear and has appropriately been reprofiled with a modernised look. The fire selector can be found on the left side of the AEG, sitting right beneath the shooter's thumb when in a firing grip. This allows for the super-fast weapon manipulation the M4/AR15 platform is known for. Each fire mode is denoted by a recessed pictogram, with a crossed-out projectile for safe, a single projectile for semi-auto and a projectile with lines following to denote fully automatic. The selector lever requires a 90-degree throw between each mode of fire, making the Ghost XS EMR quick to operate without risking potentially slipping into the wrong mode of fire. The left side of the receiver also features a dummy bolt release catch. This part serves no function but is a separate part to add detail and realism to the build.

The charging handle can be found at the top centre of the receiver and features an extended latch to allow for fast access when a quick HOP-up adjustment is necessary. Pulling the charging handle back will pop open the dust cover on the right side, retracting the mock bolt carrier and revealing the rotary HOP-up adjuster, which will be visible through the now open mock ejection port. This device allows you to add backspin to your projectile and tune the Ghost EMR for the flattest trajectory with different ammo weights. The rotary adjuster style HOP-up unit is widely recognised as the best HOP-up unit design for the M4/AR15 platform, and when coupled with Evolution Airsoft's 6.01mm tight bore inner barrel it gives the Ghost XS EMR superb range and accuracy you wouldn't expect from a bite-sized AEG like this one!

On the base of the PDW stock, located on the bottom we can find a QD sling socket which can be used with a QD sling swivel to mount a single point sling to the Ghost XS PDW. If you prefer a two-point sling this sling point can be paired with an M-LOK front sling point (available separately) to allow for a 2 or 3 point sling to be used. The stock itself is a minimalist PDW style stock which can be compressed to an ultra short length for CQB use, or for transportation in smaller gun cases. The butt plate of the stock includes linear texture moulded into its design to ensure the stock stays solidly in your shoulder, and also has textured panels on the top and at either side to provide a comfortable cheek weld.  The PDW stock pairs perfectly with the ergonomic pistol grip with its refined grip angle which its optimised for stocks with a short length of pull, and compressed shooting up close. The grip also features crackle texture on either side, and linear texture on the front to ensure it does not slip out of your hand at a key moment.

The buffer tube is constructed from aluminium and doubles as the battery compartment of the Ghost EMR. To access the battery compartment, we will first need to remove the stock. This can be done by holding the adjustment lever down, and pushing the stock locking catch found on the right side of the stock simultaneously. With this done, the stock will slide straight off, and the buffer tube can be unscrewed. With the buffer tube removed, we are presented with a Deans battery connector which is a nice modern touch from Evolution Airsoft to maximise the electrical efficiency and allow for a higher rate of fire. The battery compartment is designed for PDW type small stick batteries, and we recommend a 7.4V 600mAh LiPo battery.

As with the other AEGs in the SAG series, the most stand out features of the Ghost XS EMR are on the inside. The Ghost EMR sports reinforced steel gears powered by a high torque motor, kept in check by the excellent ETS II electronic trigger unit. The ETS II also helps boost the rate of fire and trigger response, protects the battery and circuitry within the AEG, and monitors the gearbox to ensure full cycles are being completed and that the motor does not over spin. Also built into the ETS II is the ability to program your fire controls; offering burst mode, binary trigger, ramping semi-auto and a sniper delay, giving this ETU some serious flexibility and customisation options.

To deliver the BBs onto the target, the Ghost XS EMR boasts a 6.01mm tight bore inner barrel combined with a rotary adjustable HOP-up unit, guaranteeing accuracy and the ability to reach out, even with a tiny 110mm inner barrel. The gearbox is also equipped with a quick removal spring guide, meaning if you decide to change your spring down the line the job will be a million times easier (trust us on this!).

If you are looking for an AEG with superb pre-upgraded internals, a lightweight, hard-wearing, modernised exterior with a plethora of customisation options, which is also as smart on the inside as it looks on the outside, the Ghost XS EMR is what you have been searching for. The ultra-short front end of the Ghost XS EMR pairs well with the PDW stock too allow for super compressed shooting and even use as a "cheek pistol" (google it). If you are looking for a CQB AEG that can be thrown into a backpack with space to spare, this is your best bet!
