E&L AK-12 EL-A116S – Essential version

The legendary E&L brand, whose excellent replicas of Russian assault rifles (and not only!) Have won the hearts of airsoft players from around the world, returns with the  E&L Essential series . The replicas from this line, characterized by a slightly lower price than the previous generation, retain all the features that allowed E&L products to gain a strong position on the market. These are, among others: made of 100% steel, realistic appearance and construction, solid gearbox, and perfect fit.

The best guarantee of realism is the fact that E&L airsoft replicas are assembled in a factory dealing with the production of firearms, and thus,  some external elements are  identical to the firearms counterpart  and come off the same production line. The manufacturer took care of the smallest details to bring their replicas as close as possible to the original.

Features of the carabiner:

–  100% steel construction , without the use of ZnAl elements
– stock, pistol grip, handguard and gas pipe cover made  of polymer plastic
