The Gen 2 Lancer Tactical AEGs feature a wide array of upgrades to their successful earlier models. By using higher quality parts and materials, these already affordable entry level AEGs are now built to compete with many of the more expensive other brands. By switching from ABS plastic to nylon reinforced polymer the body, grip, and stock have become much more durable while still maintaining being lightweight. The internals got an overhaul as well with upgraded parts such as the gearbox getting full metal teeth pistons, better metal bushings, and a tightbore inner barrel for better range and accuracy. Even the battery and charger got an upgrade and this rifle package now includes a 9.6v battery and smart charger.
