You have all heard of the G&G Combat Machine ARP-9, but have you ever seen it dressed in fine evening wear? This ARP-9 is finished in matt black with gold accents, a striking combination! It also features a teeny tiny suppressor, which appears to make the gun louder! There is nothing discrete about this replica anyway, like a bad fart it storms into a room and clears everyone else out!

Full description

Description

The G&G ARP-9 has taken the Airsoft CQB world by storm; following in the footsteps of the awesome G&G Firehawk, but in a new 9mm format with G&G's programmable ETU and an ultra-compact GOS V5 PDW stock. The ARP-9 shares the Firehawks booming muzzle report with its newly designed compact suppressor-styled sound amplifier, but being capable of taking an 11.1V LiPo battery takes the ARP-9 to a new level in rate of fire, and semi-auto trigger response. 

We have to wonder if the name of this rifle, the ARP-9 "Stealth" is an ironic joke, since the gold accents give off more of an overt vibe, shouting "I HAVE LOADS OF $$$$" at the top of its voice as it sends the black-rifle using "poors" on a walk back to regen. This rifle is loud, both visually and audibly! The combination of matt black with gold accents looks amazing, and the quality of the gold finish is flawless, giving us great confidence that this finish won't scratch off through normal use. Aesthetically, G&G has hit the mark as far as what is black and what is gold, providing enough visual interest to turn heads in the safe zone without giving your rifle reflective surfaces which could give you away when sneaking around!

At the front end of the ARP-9, we can find G&G's micro suppressor, which attaches to the 14mm CCW male threads at the tip of the gloss gold-finished alloy outer barrel. The micro suppressor looks awesome and ironically also functions as a sound amplifier, but if the look doesn't suit you or you are more of a sneaky type of player, the amplifier can be easily replaced with any 14mm CCW threaded accessory, including Tracer units and suppressors. The micro suppressor sits slightly recessed beneath the short M-LOK handguard, giving the ARP-9 an integrally suppressed, "honey badger" style look. 

The Handguard is constructed from aluminium and is anodized in matt black, keeping the details sharp and providing a consistent finish across the piece. At the 12 o'clock position on the M-LOK handguard we have a 20mm Picatinny rail, which joins seamlessly with the rail on the receiver to provide an extended mounting point for optical sights, which is easily long enough to house a red dot sight and a magnifier should you choose to take that route with your build. At the 3, 6, and 9 o'clock positions we have two M-LOK slots, providing negative space attachment points for M-LOK accessories or M-LOK rail sections. The use of M-LOK ensures that the ARP-9 is as light as possible and that you are only carrying the accessories and rails you will use, though the handguard also adds to the ARP-9's cutting edge, modern look. 

As we reach the receiver, we find familiar M4/AR15 style controls, making it easy for veteran M4 users to adapt their habits to run their ARP-9 proficiently. The controls are all finished in a robust gloss gold, giving this variant of the ARP-9 its unique black-gold contrasted finish. The mock bolt release can be found in the center of the left side of the receiver, and is a separate piece for added realism, but provides no function. The fire selector can be found above the pistol grip and is an enlarged design with deep grooves to ensure you can operate it easily, even in poor conditions or when under pressure. Similarly to an M4/AR15 platform, the fire selector provides 3 positions; safe, semi-automatic, and fully automatic. These selector switch positions are denoted with stylish but discrete 3D bullet pictograms and have a 90-degree throw between each mode. The magazine release of the ARP-9 is located on the bottom of the receiver, forward of the trigger guard, and is enlarged, and accessible from either side - a handy feature for left-handed users! The receiver itself follows the design aesthetic of the G&G CG series, with modern angular styling and flared magazine well for improved reload speed. The magazine well also features gripping surfaces moulded into its front face, providing an area to hold the ARP-9 when shooting in unconventional positions.

The pistol grip installed on the G&G ARP-9 is a G&G ergonomic slim type grip, which provides a comfortable enhanced grip option whilst remaining useful for those with smaller hands. This grip works well in conjunction with the flat-faced speed trigger and enlarged trigger guard. This combination of parts ensures you can get to your trigger quickly, and your finger will not slide off, even if you are slapping away at it to keep the enemies heads down! The trigger is also skeletonized, which is one of those small details which tie together to make the ARP-9 such a looker whilst also serving to further reduce any unnecessary weight. 

At the top rear of the receiver, we can find the ambidextrous charging handle, which can be actuated from either side of the AEG, and serves to open the dust cover and retract the mock bolt carrier for access to the rotary adjuster of the HOP up unit. The HOP up unit provides adjustable backspin to your BB in order to extend the range. With the charging handle held to the rear, the HOP up can be adjusted and set for the weight of BB you are using, and with its rotary design, the unit holds its setting perfectly under the vibration of firing. Just above the charging handle, we can find the rear flip-up aperture sight, which mates with the front flip-up sight. Both sights come pre-installed to the 20mm Picatinny rail on the M-LOK handguard and receiver respectively, but can be removed and replaced with any 20mm Picatinny compatible optical or iron sights. The flip-up nature of this sight set allows them to be stored in a more compressed manner, preventing damage to your sights, and can also be kept on the AEG flipped down when using an optical sight, providing an emergency aiming solution should your primary optic go down. 

Arriving at the rear of the AEG, we come across the G&G GOS-V5 PDW stock. This stock features alloy stock bars finished in, you guessed it, gloss gold! The stock can be extended to any one of two positions, depending on your body type and whether or not you use a bulky rig or plate carrier vest. The stock adjustment button can be found on the bottom of the stock, and when pressed allows the stock to extend or retract. Integrated into the GOS-V5 design, we have an ambidextrous sling loop, located on the bottom, which is ideally suited for use with a single-point sling

Within the GOS-V5 stock lies the ARP-9's battery compartment, which can hold up to an 11.1V 1100mAh battery. For ease of installation, we recommend either an 11.1V 600mAh PDW battery or purchasing the Airtech Studios Battery Extension Unit in order to install larger batteries. For more information on ARP-9 batteries, and how to install them see our Guide on the subject. To access the battery compartment, simply remove the butt plate and stock bars by holding the adjustment lever down and pulling the butt plate off to the rear. Following this, push in the tab on the bottom of the battery tube which allows the end cap to be removed, revealing the Mini-Tamiya connector beneath. 

The ARP-9 takes its own proprietary G-series style AEG magazine and comes with a realistic low-cap magazine with dummy cartridges within. The ARP-9 magazines look skinny, but the wheel wound High-cap can hold a whopping 300 rounds, meaning you are not sacrificing capacity by choosing this 9mm styled AR15 AEG. The ARP-9 can also take its specifically designed Drum Magazine if the gold and black combination is not "in your face" enough! If you are looking for a submachine gun style replica for up close and personal encounters with some added psychological warfare value, or a compact AEG to act as a pocket-sized LMG, you can't do much better than a G&G ARP-9, especially if it is in lovely gold and black!
