Everyone, meet Jack! Mark Pinder's (from last weeks feature Friday) wingman in the two-toning and returns repair department and pre-upgrades before shipping. Jack has been with ourselves for a number of years now and you may recognise him from previously working as front of house retail staff.
Lightweight, simple, modern and quite the opposite to what you would expect from him when you see what he runs as his current primary... more on that later! With a modern, low profile loadout on a relatively low budget, Jack has a load-out he can mix up fast depending on what environment he next plays at.
Usually, a fan of the outdoors, his current loadout starting from the head down consists of:
Keeping it compact and also affordable was a priority, especially when Jack runs a pricey primary.
The ARES - L1A1 SLR Rifle with real wood furniture is quite a new release. Yes, it has been out for over 12 months, but this gun was originally released many years ago but was only ever available in all Black. There was a significant dry spell where production had completely halted. It's only recently that Ares has now released the wood kit separately or you can buy it pre-fitted from the factory.
With a few years under his belt working alongside fellow Airsoft engineers, the gun has had a little tinker internally with the following upgrades:
The gun is almost used as a DMR rifle so the few upgrades above aid in that added range and accuracy, especially when combined with some 0.28 and 0.30g BB ammo. The rest of the Airsoft rifle is completely standard.
