R93 LRS1 is a highly advanced precision rifle that is used by European military and police forces as well as professional competition shooters worldwide. The rifle features a fully modular polymer stock which can be adjusted for the best fit and comfort of the individual shooter. The rifles real claim to fame though is its straight pull bolt system. Unlike conventional bolt action rifles, the action on the R93 does not need to be rotated up to unlock and can simply be pulled to the rear. This makes it possible for the shooter to rack the action without breaking his cheek weld and scope picture. With the introduction of the King Arms replica of this rifle you no longer have to purchase a real R93 or score 50 headshots in order to get the straight pull bolt. The airsoft version does it too!
This rifle scores high marks for its realistic appearance and attention to detail. The modular stock is molded from a high quality, fiber reinforced polymer and features an adjustable butt pad and cheek rest. It also features an adjustable mono-pod at the rear of the buttstock and a sliding sling swivel stud at the front for mounting a bi-pod. Other features include a solidly secured optics rail and a true free floating barrel.
On the firing line the R93 quickly proved it deserved the title of a sniper rifle by effectively reaching out to 200 feet with consistent accuracy and produced over 1.8 joules of power at the muzzle. It also has a staggering magazine capacity of a whopping 50 rounds which is by far the highest capacity magazine we have had in a bolt action sniper rifle. The straight pull bolt took a little bit of getting used to but once mastered you can really pop off shots in rapid succession all while keeping your scope picture. For those of you who might be wondering how this works for an airsoft gun, as were we, there is a spring loaded detent under the rear of the bolt which locks the bolt in place during firing. Pulling back on the bolt handle forces the detent up and releases the bolt so it can be pulled to the rear. We also discovered that this rifle has a quick release bolt system so by pushing down on the locking pin you are able to completely pull the bolt out of the rifle for easy cleaning and maintenance.
Comes with: speed loader and cleaning rod.
