Full description

Description

This is an electric powered Airsoft rifle which is powered by a motor and battery allowing for both semi automatic and fully automatic fire modes. The SA-C21 and is built with high quality materials and comes complete with an alloy railed handguard with M-LOK attachment points at the 3, 6 and 9 o'clock positions, allowing you to attach any accessories you need whilst keeping your AEG lightweight. The outer barrel, flash hider, buffer tube and charging handle, are also metal, keeping these wear-prone areas rigid and resistant to damage, with a polymer receiver, grip, and stock keeping the AEG light and ergonomic whilst providing some scratch resistance. The rifle is a perfect balance between cost and performance and is everything a beginner player and even a regular skirmisher would want in an Airsoft AEG.

The tip of the alloy outer barrel there is a 14mm CCW male thread, allowing for the attachment of suppressors, tracer units, and alternative flash hiders, though the rifle comes fitted with a standard AR15 birdcage style flash hider which looks at home at the dangerous end of this rifle. The M-LOK handguard provides a Picatinny 20mm rail across the top, should you wish to mount an optical sight or PEQ unit. The M-LOK slots on the handguard allow the addition of rail sections or M-LOK accessories, providing ultimate modularity to the SA-C21 PDW. The AEG's receiver features the usual AR15 layout, with the fire selector and mock bolt release present on the left side of the receiver, and the magazine release and mock forward assist appearing on the right. The charging handle can be found at the rear top of the receiver and features a latch to keep it locked in place when not in use. In order to access the AEG's HOP unit, you can pull the charging handle to the rear, opening the dust cover on the right side and revealing the HOP unit's rotary dial. The rear of the gun features a PDW-style stock, built from high quality alloys, with a polymer textured butt plate. This stock is particularly good for CQB environments and locks securely into place either when collapsed or extended. The stock is easy to adjust by simply pressing the catch release button and adjusting it to one of four positions. The AEG also comes with a pair of flip up iron sights which can be installed at the 12 o'clock postion on the rifle's Picatinny rail. These sights feature spring assisted deployment, allowing a rapid transition to your iron sights in an emergency. The folding nature of the sights also means that when not in use the sights can be kept at a low profile and flipped up when required. When used combined with a red dot sight, these iron sights can be zeroed to line up with the reticle, giving a more precise point of aim for precision shots. The rifle features a V2 gearbox which is rear wired to the common battery connector, the Mini-Tamiya connector, allowing most upgrade parts to be fitted and providing compatibility with the most common batteries on the market.

 Internally, the weapon has plenty of pre-installed upgrades over a standard off the shelf Airsoft AEG, with a 6.03mm precision inner barrel and rotary HOP unit to increase the AEG's accuracy, and 8mm Bearings which support the gears smooth rotation, along with a full steel racked piston for better performance and to increase the lifespan of the weapon. The gearbox features Specna Arms' Enter and Convert system, which is essentially a quick change spring gearbox system. This allows you to quickly and easily swap the spring to increase or decrease the FPS of the SA-C21 by removing a large screw at the back of the gearbox. This allows you to adjust the power of the rifle to the site you wish to play at without having to take the gearbox entirely apart. 

This rifle is perfect for any player looking to get into Airsoft skirmishing and want a rifle which comes in at a great price point but is also extremely skirmishable. This rifle is not only recommended for beginner players, but for regular skirmishers who are looking for another weapon, or as a great high quality base for future upgrades.

We have found that the following batteries will fit comfortably in this gun.


Use this one if your gun has the traditional mini Tamiya connector:

Specna Arms 7.4V 600mAh 20/40C Battery for PDW – Mini Tamiya


Or use the following one instead if you have a Deans connector fitted:
