Here is a quick review of the G&G Scar-L Airsoft Gun.
First off, I would like to say that I have a lot of hands on with the Classic Army Scar-L Airsoft Gun and a lot of my comparisons will be based off of that knowledge.
450 Round High-Cap magazine.
Initial Impression: I was slightly stunned. I noticed first off how lightweight the G&G Scar-L is compared to the CA version. Almost 1/3rd lighter or more in my estimations. Also the AEG seemed very sleek and solid as a rock. The charging lever has a weaker spring behind it, so pulling the bolt back takes no effort at all. This could be a good thing to some, a bad thing to others.
Pulling the Bolt back reveals the hop up assembly, newly designed with a clear hop up unit, you can see the new cold weather hop up bucking inside the assembly. This can be very helpful when troubleshooting Air-Seal issues IMO. The hop up adjustment was a little stiff and hard to access with your fingers, so a little adjustment tool comes with the package, which is nice if you don’t lose it.
The battery compartment:
This is a First for me, as you can see the battery assembly is completely detachable from the stock. The base of the stock has 2 solid terminals which stay in contact with the battery compartment. This I think is to allow easy adjustment of the stock without dealing with crumpled stock wiring. The disassembly is a bit of a chore, but no harder than the CA version I have worked with.
Internal Components: I didn’t have a chance to fully disassemble this AEG; I did have a chance to take a look at the wiring harness when I was changing the battery. I have not seen such good quality wiring in any AEG I have handled stock. The previous G&G AEGs of this price range are usually loaded with high quality internal components. Stock gear set that blows Mauri away IMO, 7-8mm Bearing bushings, Bearing spring guide and piston head, 6.04mm tight bore barrel all stock.
Performance: I went ahead and put in a G&P 9.6v Mini battery used Fidragon .20g BBs and a chronographer. This sucker shoots 390 FPS out of the box without hop up adjustments!
Bad stuff: Hop up is hard to get to if you need to make adjustments in the field. Battery compartment is a bit of a chore.
Good Stuff: Built like a rock. The Magnesium Body gives strength at 1/3rd the weight of the CA counterpart. 390 FPS stock is an awesome feature because most other Scars require costly upgrades to reach 400 FPS.
Overall: Great AEG. Innovative designs and unbeatable quality. If youâ€™re looking for a SCAR you’d kick yourself for not getting this one.
