Full description


The SA-V Carbine is a  series of rifles and is an excellent compact package for all arenas from CQB to Woodland. The externals of the rifle are constructed from a Zinc & Aluminium Alloy which makes it very tough, long lasting and makes it feel great in the hands. This quality is continued all around the weapon with various trim pieces being constructed from Steel for extra longevity.

The imposing 'Snakehead Rail System' features an imposing muzzle brake which is removable to reveal a 14mm CCW thread for the addition of suppressors and other muzzle devices. The rail system features 20mm and M-LOK to attach accessories like foregrips and lasers, and is ergonomically shaped to give you a comfortable hand position without accessories attached. The metal externals have been anodised, sandblasted prior to painting and powder coated for the ultimate finish which is as close to the real thing as you can get.

Moving along the weapon you will find flip-up iron sights included in the box, a silvered forward assist and a gold mock bolt which not only helps make it look like a well known weapon platform but takes it's aesthetics to another level. At the rear you will find a sliding six position stock which is easy to access, and is where you will find a mini-Tamiya to connect your batteries to. For this weapon we recommend a 7.4v 2000mAh LiPo Crane Stock battery. A Steel constructed ambidextrous sling plate is installed on the buffer tube to allow you to use slings on either side of the weapon, making this a good choice for ambidextrous/left handed players.

Inside the gearbox you will find a plethora of uprated parts, which are applied with surgical precision to provide a high quality and top-performing result. These parts include 8mm Steel bearings, Steel gears, a Polycarbonate piston with Steel teeth and an Aluminium piston head. The cylinder is also reinforced, the HOP unit and nozzle is made from metal and a Steel spring guide finishes off the package to leave you with a long-lasting design.

The Enter & Convert quick spring change system is a welcome addition for those who like to tinker with their weapon, or for those who play at multiple sights with different power velocity limits. The Enter & Convert system reduces overall spring change time by removing the need to disassemble the gearbox to adjust power. Simply remove the gearbox from the receiver to access the spring at the rear via a quick-release Allen Key system.

If you're looking for a budget priced AR-15 style rifle with stand-out cosmetics, top shelf construction, and a wealth of internal upgrades which are applied in an effective and precise way for long life and consistent performance, the SA-V38 series of rifles are a sure choice.
