The ARES 13" Experimental "AAC Honeybadger" Style Airsoft Rifle, makes for an excellent all around platform. Built from durable, lightweight nylon fiber reinforced polymer, this rifle can take the punishment of hard game play and keep on shooting. The gearbox is the ARES version 2 gearbox, made from durable cast zinc alloy with a quick-change spring system for easy adjustment of FPS for wherever you play. It also utilized a micro-switch trigger for better trigger response giving the shooter a snappy trigger pull. The gearbox is also compatible with the aftermarket ARES fire control unit (not included) for programmable burst fire as well! The gearbox also features the gambit of industry standards such as metal gears and high strength polymer piston parts for maximum rate of fire. The textured grip houses a high-torque motor that pulls nearly any spring you may use with the quick-change system. A pre-installed 6.03mm tightbore barrel makes for increased accuracy at any distance. The Amoeba collapsible minimalist stock is built to be both lightweight and compact. The stock is 2-position adjustable making this CQB length rifle fit nearly any operator. The aluminum CNC free-float rail system allows for the attachment of accessories such as lights, lasers, grips, optics, and more. It comes with 4 railed sections and more can be installed as well. The upper receiver comes with detachable rear sight and integrated, railed tip-up front sight. The lower receiver sports the engraved ARES Amoeba trademarks and emblem. The front of the magwell is also textured for shooters who hold the magazine and magwell when firing. An over-sized magazine release button makes for quicker mag changes as well. With dual hand-stops and non-functional internal suppressor, the look of the popularized "AAC Honeybadger" rifle hasn't been better produced by any other airsoft gun manufacturer to date! The included Amoeba high-cap magazine is stippled and grooved for maximizing grip. It also has a viewing port reviewing faux-bullets for added realism. The bottom of the magazine has a flip up and fold-away pull ring that can be used for quick drawing the magazine from mag pouches. This magazine is a classic high-cap winding wheel magazine holding upwards of 300 BBs.
I love this gun. Every time I pull this out all the guys whistle. It looks and feels amazing, as well the trigger response is great (no real need for a burst programmer). It has been very accurate and performance wise I have no complaints... certain cosmetic and information "problems" I feel need noting.
1: The GIANT orange tip almost completely removes stealth or ambushes and no suppressor can cover it
2: the rear (closest to eye) iron sight is kinda tight after extending the stock.
3: The stock only has 2 positions and, with my chest size, made a 2 point sling useless if extended.
4: The mags have a slight wiggle room... not much but enough to nit pick.
5: Its unstated but a 3 cell LiPo PEQ battery is a VERY tight fit. I find it very hard to find a NiMH battery to fit in the standard stock. it is "LiPo ready" but I think it should say "LiPo required".
All these I found can be fixed/ignored and do not take away from the havoc you can cause with this beautiful beastJulius S.

this gun is the best gun i ever had. the trigger response of the gun is close to a gas blowback weapon. 10/10 Hitman Slayer
