Interesting article from RedWolf Airsoft about Magpul products for airsoft.
With Magpul no longer interested in manufacturing licensed replicas for Airsoft, the RM4 ERG might just be your last chance to own an actual Magpul Airsoft gun.
It has been a while since the break-up of Magpul and PTS, the duo that used to be the face of Magpul in airsoft. And while Magpul accessories on the field are still a common sight, actual licensed complete Magpul PTS airsoft rifles are dwindling in numbers and soon to go the way of the dodo. The days where MOE accessories were abundant, roaming free on the shelves, where Pmags could be found in plentiful flocks, are behind us now. Airsoft conservationists collect and cherish the pristine remains of authentic polymer Magpul PTS goodness while poachers hunt the last few smidgeons of endangered hardware. That is to say, fewer Magpul PTS goods can now be harder to find and if you wish to own a relic of the Magpul PTS era, you cannot afford to wait long.
Magpul PTS’s final legacy is the pinnacle of balance between realism, skirmishability, reliability and aesthetic appeal. Their last “HURRAH”, tour de force, pierce of the heavens, is the Magpul Professional Training System RM4 Electric Recoil Gun, more concisely referred to by its acronyms as PTS RM4 ERG.
What defines this crowning release is not only its long list of features, which we will get to in a minute, but the near perfect synergy that they achieve and the retention of reliability that is so essential to proclaim quality. Without any need for modification the Magpul PTS RM4 ERG is an AEG that sports not only the usual “Full metal, Fire Select, Adjustable Hop-up, One-Piece Barrel” list of properties, but a plethora of technologically advanced features that pose greater engineering and design challenges to the creation of an airsoft gun.
To begin with, the enhanced firing experience that the Magpul PTS RM4 ERG provides is inherent in the namesake; Electric Recoil Gun. The gearbox is connected to a moderately hefty, spring-loaded weight concealed in the stock tube. This is indirectly connected via a buffered attachment to the piston’s movement. The result is that during firing, the Magpul PTS RM4 ERG provides timely impulses, synchronous to the rate of fire of the platform, and comparable in strength to that of a moderate GBB. To put it in simpler terms; simulated recoil.
