Overall, the FAMAS rifle is an extremely good starter package for any airsoft player looking to do a little of everything on the airsoft field.
Cybergun's fully licensed FAMAS airsoft rifle is an excellent replica of the latest generation FAMAS F1 series real steel rifle. The FAMAS Rifle is one of the forerunner Bullpup design rifles, a overhaul of the typical full-length rifle compacted down into a smaller, more effective package. Fielded by the French military, the real-steel version of this airsoft rifle saw widespread use with nearly 400,000 units produced. From muzzle to stock, this rifle was painstakingly designed over decades to be the first bullpup of it's kind and was the basis for nearly all bullpups to come.
Starting at the muzzle end of the rifle, the barrel features a grenade support mock APAV-40 adjustment lug for mock APAV-40 grenades. The outer barrel in conjunction with this lug can also support some mock bayonets. Cybergun even went as far as to include the FAMAS adjustable grenade launcher sight in front of the charging handle. An integraded bipod is quickly deployable for switching between assaulting and supporting fire. The handguard serves a dual purpose: acting as a battery compartment that easily holds 9.6v nunchuck and brick style NiMH batteries, as well as sports a picatinny rail for attaching aftermarket accessories such as grips. The oversized trigger guard accomodates gloves when shooting as well. A dual-function safety physically blocks the trigger to help prevent accidentally firing the rifle, and also rotates out of the way when playing. Rotating the safety slightly past 90 degrees releases the locking mechanism on the handguard and battery compartment. The carry handle on the top of the rifle holds multiple sets of sights, including an integrated front sight is easily adjusted from side to side to correct/adjust for wind, indirect fire flip up rear sight, and long/medium/CQB range adjustable rear sight. The carry handle is also made to support an aftermarket Cybergun weaver/picatinny rail mount (part number PS-403001) available here at Airsoft Station for adding scopes, red dots, or other optics. The ergonomic pistol grip has a flip-down door that allows small items to be stored within the grip. Behind the pistol grip a 300 BB High Capacity Magazine snaps into an individually serialized magazine well. The cheek rest is ambidexterous and when removed reveals the easily adjustable hop-up dial. A safe, semi-auto, and fully automatic fire selector is on the bottom of the buttstock. The rubberized buttplate is texturized to prevent slipping from your shoulder when on the run and under fire and has two metal strap-style sling rings. This rifle comes packaged with a high capacity magazine, 8.4v 1,100mAh battery, and 300mAH standard wall charger.
Airsoft Station recommends a 9.6v NiMH Battery and Smart Charger to fully utilize this rifle's performance capabilities.
