ARES STRIKER Bolt Removal

Many of you have taken up the chance to grab one of the first few ARES AMOEBA STRIKER S1 sniper rifles. We are due more in stock soon but get the last few that remain by "clicking here". 

Todays blog is aimed at showing you exactly how to remove the bolt. Why would you do this? For servicing and upgrading. Let's get this out of the way quickly though, if you decide to install a bigger spring you will void your warranty!

First step, locate the retaining pin, you can take your bolt out without dismantling any part of your gun. See the picture below showing the pin.

Ensure you gun is not cocked, and push this pin out with a small screwdriver. It is easy to push out, but will not fall out under its own weight.

Next up, just pull your bolt back. If it catches just pull the bolt out whilst pulling your trigger as if you were firing the rifle.

With the bolt out and the firing indicator, you will have this.

Now look at the cylinder head, you will see two dimples, using some pliers you can push and twist this off.

The result, you now have your internals spring out into your hand. Ensure these are not covered in grit and re-lube before every Airsoft game for the best results and add a tiny bit of grease on the outside of the cylinder.

Now, to re-assemble this is slightly more difficult, you can see below a trigger sear.

Push this down with a screwdriver as shown below and then slide back in your cylinder. It will require a wiggle and some patience! But it will go in.

Now with your cylinder back in, just push the retaining pin back in and you are done.

We hope you found this blog useful, yes the spring inside is an AEG spring. We have tried an M140 and got over 430fps but as previously mentioned, you do this at your own risk as it will void your warranty.

We can confirm that ARES are planning on releasing upgraded cylinders in the near future along with other unique parts.

ARES L1A1 SLR – Relaunch

For many years now we have had 3 of these in store on the wall, the originals! The production had come to a stop with no real reasoning as to why. We were questioned daily "are they for sale!"... We would have to tell our customers "sorry but they are all owned by one greedy staff owner...".

Well, ladies and gents they are being re-launched! We are the first store to have one of these in, tested and on film! We can confirm they are coming back into production and we hope to be the first to get our little mitts on them.
