Arthurian Airsoft Excalibur Veteran M16 AEG
The airsoft rifle is part of the Arthurian Airsoft ‘Excalibur’ range of AEGs. There are several different models within this range, and something suitable for every player. The Excalibur AEGs are constructed fully using metal, with the option to add external parts so you can personalise the gun.
The Arthurian Airsoft Excalibur Veteran Vietnam era M16 AEG is based on the original Colt M16, a model which is rarely seen on the market. The front end of the model has a class triangular handguard which is made from polymer. This gives it a comfortable, realistic feel. The flash hider is the original, tri- pronged, tulip and made from aluminium. The front sight post is the ‘A-frame’ style with a bayonet lug which can accept most rubber/training M7 or M9 bayonets.
The fire selector settings are engraved with the typical ‘Safe’, ‘Semi’ & ‘Auto’ setting and there is a selector switch that clicks positively into place on each firing mode. The buffer tube is 55mm long due to the fixed stock. It prevents the stock from coming loose and supports the weight in the rear.
The Excalibur Veteran does not have the Exchange and Chrono spring system typical of the Excalibur range. The Arthurian Airsoft Excalibur Veteran M16 AEG does, however, have a quick change spring guide and gearbox allowing you to change the spring quicker than normal gearboxes. The stock must be removed first before you can access the quick-change system.
The gun has a similar design to the original Vietnam era M16, and the pistol grip is based on this. The main difference is that it comes with a 30 round style magazine instead of the short 20 round style.
There is enough room in the stock fit a large type 9.6v NiMH battery, and smaller batteries can also fit into the stock.
The gearbox is extremely well made. It resembles most mid-range AEGs in terms of the components it is built with. All guns in the Excalibur series come preinstalled with 8mm bearings and a 15 metal tooth piston.
