There isn't much to add to the importance of the first impression that you already know. Probably nothing at all, so we grabbed the latest APS gun as soon insanely cool! as we arrived at the o ce and went straight to play ith it (cool job, uh?). When we came back we sat in front of the computer (it's not playtime all the time) to try to convey our feelings. But what you are about to read is only an approximation, as there is only one way to experience it; get a hold of one and go play, it's insanely cool!


The particular smell when firing is something we will only feel with GBB's, whether shooting with (270 FPS) or CO2 (340 FPS, both carrying 0'20gr bbs).  e CO2 follows APS' patented system which fully uses the load. Although in both cases the bbs capacity is 22 + 1, it depends on the  re rate (the higher it is, the cooler the magazine and the lower the e ciency of the gas/CO2) to be able to say how many bbs we can  re with a single load.


Your eyes will set right away on the metal slide made of CNC, which is not surprising given the bright red colour standing out over black matte. When taking a closer look, you will find optical  bre sights in two colours (very useful for aiming in dim light) or the new slide cover in red with the model logo (a merely aesthetic feature that makes it even cooler, which is something true airso ers love).


The stippling ensures the gun is secured in our hand, even if we take the  nger o the trigger (trigger discipline comes  rst!) it can be still  rmly held. It will stay in place even if we are le -handed. A completely handmade process made gun by gun in the APS factory. More details? Oversized magazine and slide release,  ashlight RIS under the barrel... shall we carry on?


The taste this gun leaves us with follows the trail of its APS predecessors. Its materials and  nish details are outstanding and unparalleled. Although we may not have the same taste as the designers, we must congratulate the engineers for its performance. APS has managed to perfectly solve the generalised slide-body friction issue a ecting almost all glocks, and this model has no such issue at all issue at all.


The  ring action in this model is greatly in uenced by APS' new straight trigger. It still carries the embedded safety witch, but thanks to the absence of a traditionally curved trigger, trigger travel is shorter, enabling a more instinctive shot. Details such as a narrower magazine to provide less friction or the magwell (the plastic part at the bottom of the magazine) enables faster reloading, ideal for competition shooting or... not being eliminated while reloading!!


Sometimes we don't bother customising our guns as there aren't any appropriate accessories.  e good news is that APS o ers its own 100% compatible and extremely cool accessories!


Dismantling the back sight we will be able to mount this rail to attach a speci c redcoloured dot which has two white dots to aim with the sights in case we don't carry it on.


Change the slide cover will have absolutely no e ect on performance, but you will surely be carrying a di fferent and more customised model than the rest of the players, thus gaining cool points!


The outer barrel in APS guns usually has a 14 mm+ threaded finish in which we will be able to couple this adapter that allows us to use a threaded 14mm- silencer or carry it with the guard in "tacticool" mode.


We will not only find a silencer (AC018) for the guns, but we can also increase performance with a longer inner barrel (190mm) which runs inside the silencer.
