The PolarStar EPAR has been one of the most talked about subjects in recent airsoft history since it has been one of the only systems to directly challenge the AEG for battlefield superiority in over two decades. This revolutionary new system was designed specifically with the hardcore skirmisher in mind by offering unmatched performance, reliability and versatility. Those lucky enough to have ever used or seen this system in action have quickly deemed it the ultimate skirmish weapon.
This Electro-Pneumatic Airsoft Rifle (EPAR) is equipped with the PolarStar Fusion Engine which runs off of High Pressure Air (HPA). The Fusion Engine is best described as a solenoid driven, electronically controlled, HPA powered, drop-in replacement for an AEGs gearbox. Never again will you have to deal with the headache of stripped pistons, broken gears, snapped tappet plates or late nights spent retuning and reshimming your rifle before a game. This system gives you the ability to easily adjust literally every aspect your rifles performance allowing the PR-15 to fulfill several different roles in one reliable, easy to use package. And the best part is with this system you will not need to have a degree in airsoft mechanics to customize the performance of your rifle. If you have only the basic understanding of how an airsoft gun functions you will be able to tune your rifle as easily as changing the ring tone on your cell phone.

When it comes to performance these rifles cannot be described as anything less than extraordinary. Firing it feels completely different from an AEG since there is no motor whine, no gear noise and the rifles fires instantly when you squeeze the trigger. Even an AEG with a Lipo and a MOSFET can not achieve this fast of a trigger response. In fact, these rifles can actually fire faster than you can pull the trigger. And, since these rifles sound more like high powered air rifles than airsoft guns, having a few of these opening up during an engagement brings a whole new level of realism to the game.
The Blue air nozzle which comes standard in the PAKS-74U series caps the muzzle velocity to keep it within the field rifle limits allowed by most events even at the systems maximum operating pressure. By adjusting the pressure on your air tanks regulator you will have a velocity adjustment range of 50 fps within the operating pressure range of 80psi to 120psi. This makes it possible to fine tune your rifle to the exact velocity you want without even needing to pop open the receiver. PolarStar is also offering aftermarket air nozzles which can shift the velocity range up and down. With a set of these color coded, easy to install air nozzles you will always be able to reach your target velocity while staying within the systems optimum pressure range no matter if you need a CQB rifle shooting below 1 Joule or a high powered sniper rifle that can reach out to 100 yards or more.
Bottom line, we have been in business since 1998 and in that time we have never seen an airsoft system built with as much attention to detail, intelligence and quality as PolarStar has done with their Fusion Engine. That combined with the always impressive LCT externals and this is possibly the finest shooting and most dependable airsoft rifle money can buy.
