Update 1: It has now been confirmed, the L96 MB-01 is the only version of the L96 airsoft rifle to be 100% compatible with Maruzen APS parts and upgrades.
New and improved for 2016, this is the generation 3 based on the Maruzen L96. This airsoft sniper rifle is very accurate and very solid.
To bring the power up from 330 FPS to 450 FPS simply unscrew the restrictor (takes 1 minute, we include clear instructions) this will give you an effective range of 80 metres plus. We recommend checking with your local airsoft site as they may have restrictions on sniper rifles over a certain power.
This item is of a professional spec, you're unlikely to need a more expensive sniper rifle after you have this one. The internals are precision made and are almost all metal with a CNC lathed brass internal barrel. The upper receiver, top rail, weaver bipod mount and outer barrel is metal with the stock constructed from ABS resin. The bolt action is smooth and fairly silent, the bolt action and other moving parts are reassuringly chunky this contributes to L96 near 4 kg weight which is nearly as much as the real thing.
The unique shape of this two tone rifle is designed to be ergonomic to hold, the rubber butt plates make it comfortable to pull back the cocking action and to fire.
We have noticed that to start with there maybe allot of grease in the barrel so give it a good clean out (set the hop up to open/none) and occasionally applying a drop of silicone oil to the magazine and firing chamber will improve the accuracy dramatically.
This is the latest version with all the upgrades of the older versions plus it now has a fully VCRA compliant injection molded "camo swirl" style finish, great for blending into your environment a bit more.
This version of the Warrior L96 MB-01 includes a good quality metal 3-9x40 scope with metal weaver mounts and a metal bipod which has fold back legs, all of this can be put together in around 10 minutes. All you need for sniping greatness.
