Lancer's LT-02 series AEGs are an incredibly popular entry-level AEG package that included all the basics such as grips, rail covers, and even the battery & charger. Lancer improved upon the LT-02 by upgrading both internals and externals. Internally, the AEG's gearbox received an overhaul and now also features a quick-change spring system that allows the FPS of the rifle to be modified without disassembling the gearbox. The accuracy of the rifle was vastly improved by including a 6.01mm precision bore barrel which keep the shots closely grouped together. A rotary style hop-up makes for much easier hopup adjustments and fine-tuning to get the perfect amount of backspin. The ABS plastic body and rail system has been entirely replaced with nylon polymer which is far more durable while still maintaining it's lightweight design. On top of all of these new features, Lancer also upgraded the Battery & Charger from a 8.4v to a 9.6v NiMH for faster rate of fire and the charger indicates when the charge is now complete. Overall, the Generation 2 version has been improved in nearly every way and is a rock-solid rifle for getting into airsoft without breaking the budget!
