I don't see any point to having a longer barrel/cylinder, most experts agree the shorter barrels are more accurate; the science is sound and we've got plenty of first hand experience that backs that up.
I REALLY want an SR25K though lol
oh it will be compatible but different in some things. You just have to wait and see

Wallace from Zshot says the new Systema is either CNC from billet 7075 or forge like real steel. Is this truth coming from his mouth?

I have heard this from two or three other sources as well.

Pot metal is cast metal. Castings are just generally softer and weaker than billet
You don't cast pot metal into billet, that's just not how it works lol

Well I hope they are hoping for a big government contract, I don't think those guys in the ATF will like it very much if the lower and upper are forged like the real thing

Not every country has the adept ATF. And the issue is more likely an intertsate commerce in arms problems than simply and importation one.

One rumour I heard was that it was going to be an Amercian manufacturer for the receivers.

We shall see.

you can always depend on the ATF to come up with something, it will be interesting to see an actual firearms manufacturer participating in airsoft other than just licencing its about time.

2013 Systema description on Redwolf's website

"Every part of the gun fits together perfectly, with precise aluminum die cast receiver you can feel the body's rigidity being much better than the regular AEG's in the market (like Classic Army, G&P, etc)."

So who told Wallace at Zshot that it was CNC 7075 or Forged?????

Wildcard,

Is the wait for a FCC still months?

I asked this question on another thread about the PTW. Does the PTW really need the hop mod?

FCC CNC platform is still on hold, FTW and others are being released I have in stock 2 AOR 416D, FTW are inbound at customs, the new AOR don't need Hop up mod (its already modded)

just a little advice to dismiss any myth about FCC or PTW
- Having a FCC or a PTW does not give you ridiculous range as some has claimed, effective engagement range on these things are around 250-300ft
- Having FCC or PTW does not make you a better shooter but a properly tuned PTW/FCC will make it easier
- HAving a PTW/FCC is not maintainance free, it does require maintainance just like any other precision machinery
- PTW/FCC are expensive toys, toys do break and parts for them are expensive when compared to conventional airsoft platforms any beliefs or expectation that these things last forever are not true and probably the biggest pile of shit you can walk on.

Wildcard,

You don't need to tell me, I know the facts about spherical bb limitations on all airsoft guns. My VFC SSR can reach as far as my TM VSR10 easily.

It is a sin that the stock hop on the PTW is so bad and not consistent. The PTW or FTW I see just rocks in the area of quick cylinder change out, easy ECU replacement, overall design. I just blew a piston on my VFC last week and it is a pain to pull out the gear box and then open up the gear box. When my WE GBBR breaks, it take seconds to replace the part, but on a AEG, no so fast.

What I don't like which I can live with it, is the ability to use standard AEG mags for fore go the last round lock out. Too bad the PTW wasn't designed to use both.

I think most people would be tickled to get that kind of range out of any gun, but it is not hard to do with the TW platform.

Quote:

I disagree. When your gun is clean, maintained and fit for service (just like any gun, real or airsoft), it will perform consistantly. Then you, as a shooter, know your gun, can predict how it will perform and know where your rounds are going. That makes you a better shooter.

Quote:

From a performance perspective, all your maintenance is concentrated in the cylinder. The time and costs are extremely minimal, perhaps $2/year in lube and 20 minutes of your time per cylinder, if you are heavy on the trigger.

From a PM standpoint, a gearbox relube every 1-2 years, takes about 30 minutes, and about $3 in lube at most.

It is highly unlikely that you will suffer a broken component, it happens, but really is rare.

If you are breaking PTWs like matchsticks, there is no airsoft gun safe. If you are breaking internal components, there is something very wrong. If a PTW breaks gears, or you fry electronics, with a very small number of exceptions, it is user error.

You can't fix carelessness nor stupidity, and you can never engineer against destructive.
