The Ares Airsoft – Ares L1A1 SLR is now available for Pre-Order from Redwolf Airsoft.
What we have here is the British ‘Inch version’ of the FAL, which is known as the L1A1 Self-Loading -Rifle (SLR) and the SLR has been in service with the British forces until they were ultimately replaced by the SA80.
The L1A1 SLR Rifle have seen a lot of combat around the world including the Falklands campaign, where both parties had basically the same rifle, Argentinians had fully automatic FALs and the British had the semi-only L1A1 SLR.
In the airsoft world, Ares decided to re-introduce the L1A1 SLR to the world, it is a fully metal constructed rifle with polymer furniture. The magazine holds 120 round and is inserted like an AK magazine, front in first, then rock the back in, removes with a paddle magazine release.
Battery is accessible on the stock and the butt pad rotates and reveal the battery compartment with a small tamiya plug, taking a 7.4V lipo stick type battery in it.
Hop up adjustment dial is accessible when you pull back the charging handle and the hop up adjustment window would open.
**Note: Because this is a L1A1, it will not have full automatic fire mode.
