Product Information:
After having a couple of m4's (ca & kwa) and an ics/ae mp5 i decided i wanted to try something different. My aim was 400 fps, stamped steel body, folding stock, and a version 3 gearbox that wasn't an ak. well this gun had it all, ics has all the right ideas but when it comes to the final product, they sorely disappoint. my old airsoft elite mp5 worked great but had problem with some of the ics parts (selector and hop up) but i was hoping that the good things id heard about the L85 meant that they had come a long way. Not the case. The plastic handguard came broken where it interacts with the body, the body itself wobbled, folding stock retention rattled, cocking bolt handle realease rattled, magazines didnt feed (even with a bit of lube), bolt itself had to be pushed down just right in order to go back, and the selector was just horrible. its incredibly difficult to move, does not click unless coming from auto downward (and even then it just clicks, but not into place) and is just awkwardly built. I was very unsatisfied with it (so much so that I returned it) and would recommend that if you have $300 invest in a KWA, i was much more impressed with mine and i regret getting rid of it.

Version 3 gearbox (supposedly better for high velocity upgrades)
400 fps
large grip (i have big hands)
quick take down
folding stock
bolt release

body rattles
cheap plastic handguard
folding stock catch rattles in stock
tought bolt catch
cocking boltt handle release rattled

plastic hop up (not horrible)
performance is nothing spectacular
