The Amoeba MUTANT is the latest iteration of the legendary AMOEBA M4 style AEGs that has been a top choice of starters and modders alike! This new model breaks from the traditional M4 format and comes feature packed while not compromising on performance.
The MUTANT keeps the high-quality lightweight polymer upper and lower receiver seen on generations pasts but improves upon it by refreshing its look, giving it a more "billet" style design. The rifle also now features ambidextrous magazine release paddles making it much easier for lefties to operate.
The most defining feature of the MUTANT is its ability to be highly customizable. Learning from the success of the ARES M45 series AEGs, the MUTANT's front end is completely modular. Meaning you can swap out the complete outer barrel assembly which includes inner barrel and hop-up for an extended version or a more compact version to suit your play style or "mission". The process is quick and easy by simply popping out the retainer pin that connects the handguard to the lower receiver and unscrew the 2 screws that hold the barrel assembly in place. This allows for a much wider range of possibilities otherwise unseen on AEGs that are considered "entry-level".
Internally the gun uses the ARES E.F.C.S. system that is tried and tested. You will get a workhorse of a rifle that can also be programmed to fire in semi-auto, burst, or full-auto by using the corresponding programmer.
All MUTANT AEGs are compatible with ARES or AMOEBA M4 AEG magazines as well as standard M4 AEG magazines and the threading is 14mm CW.
The L85 belongs to the SA80 family of British rifles and has been the mainstay of the British armed forces for decades. Throughout its storied history, the rifle has seen many different upgrades and has been used in diverse theaters of warfare which the Brits have participated in. Needless to say, it's an instantly recognizable platform and is synonyms with the British as the M4/M16 is with the Americans.
The A3 was first unveiled in prototype form in September 2016 with working models on display in September 2017 at the Defense and Security Equipment International event and official adoption took place in 2018. The changes from the A2 design included a modification to the upper receiver and a full-length rail system for optional add-ons such as a vertical foregrip, laser, and weapon light. It also included a weight saving of 100g (3.5oz) and a new FDE (Flat Dark Earth) coating for better camouflage across various environments.
The airsoft version is a faithful replica and feels exceptionally solid when shouldered. Being a full metal gun, it does have some weight to it but it's not overbearing. The redesigned slimline Keymod rail gives the L85A3 a very sleek look and makes it feel more in-line with many current weapons systems from other NATO countries.
The L85A3 is internally compatible with ARES EFCS and ARES M4 AEG parts making it easy to work on. As mentioned it does house the ARES EFCS which will ensure consistent delivery of performance with every trigger pull.
This rifle is compatible with standard M4 AEG or ARES M4 AEG magazines.
