Questions & Answers
There have been many great airsoft replicas of bolt action rifles in the past few years, but the ARES AW338 is by far one of the best that we have seen to date. Out of the box it comes with all the necessary equipment to dominate on the field. Included with the gun, you will receive an excellent scope mount and adjustable bipod that not only all look great on the gun, but are sure to provide a tactical advantage as well. On the rear of the stock there is an adjustable mono-pod that gives the user improved target acquisition and a stable shooting platform when used in conjunction with the bi-pod, and unlike other replicas like the L96, the AW338 has a side folding stock with a adjustable cheek rest. What really sets this sniper rifle apart from most other airsoft sniper rifles is that the magazine is actually located in the correct location. This adds a great extra element of realism to the look and feel of the ARES AW338. This gun is solidly constructed with a nylon fiber body and a CNC aluminum alloy barrel, and is spring powered, so you will never have to worry about running out of gas mid game.
For: ARES Full Metal AW-338 Spring Powered Bolt Action Sniper Rifle Airsoft Gun (OD/CNC Licensed Edition)
The ARES AW338 is a spring powered sniper rifle that shoots around 420-450 FPS.
It's made of a very solid polymer which is a type of plastic but it's extremely durable and feels rather nice and classy compared to other plastic bodies. It came already assembled in the box so the box was rather large but externally it is top class and probably the most well made and best looking L96 type rifles right now.
The internals are also just as impressive and very unique because of ARES' TX system which means there is a little chamber inside the gun that takes the bullets from the mag (since it's in the right place) to the hop up which is placed towards the front of the gun. So the chamber has to have around 10-20 to fire. Think of the first 10-20 BB's like fuel for your gun; these 10-20 BB's only serve to make the gun fire.
Aesthetically it is a beauty
Great working bipod
Monopod is fully functional
Folding stock works great
Mag is in the right place
Scope rings work very well
Solid external/internal finishes
Shoots very hard and extremely accurate (zero in your scope)
ARES TX system takes time to get used to
The magazine fits in very tightly so the mag gets scratched easily (it's ok though)
I had to order the flash hider from ARES directly from Hong Kong (the spring version does not come with the flash hider in the US but does with the gas version)
Can't add suppressors since neither the flash hider or the orange tip is threaded (you can go to a machinist and pay them to do this for you though)
Sometimes the BB's get jammed so you have to take care of it
