If you haven’t heard about it already, the G&G Armament SSG-1 takes their tried and tested AR Platform that has stood the test of time, and redesigned almost every aspect of the Gun to make it ideal for competitive ‘Speedsoft’ style gameplay. We’re assuming that a great deal of you will be confused as to what you’re looking at; put simply it is a crossover of Paintball / Sup Air style gameplay and competitive Airsoft gaming. This style of gameplay requires rapid trigger response, and a new kind of external design that keeps you light on your feet doesn’t get in your way and is compatible with the Paintball-style Masks that a great deal of ‘Speedsoft’ players wear. This Rifle isn’t limited to this style of gameplay, however. It is still a G&G M4 Platform rifle, which has been consistently excellent for years – not only this but the amount of die-hard Mil-Sim players who will be wound up to no end by you using this Gun will bring you countless joy.
As mentioned, the G&G SSG-1 is designed to be as lightweight as possible, whilst still remaining strong enough for hardcore competitive gameplay. They have chosen the CM16 Receiver as the base, as this has proven itself it to be an exceptionally strong Polymer Receiver. This also means that it has an Ambidextrous Mag Release which could save your bacon in the heat of the moment. The SSG-1 has done away with a Handguard entirely, as it is nothing but the extra weight in the eyes of a competitive player. Instead, the Custom Muzzle Brake at the front of the Barrel has short 20mm Rails for any kind of compact accessory you could want. The Receiver obviously features a 20mm Rail for Sights and Scopes and is usually seen with a Red Dot Sight on a Riser Mount to compliment this ‘Full Face Protection compatible’ design. The Trigger Guard has been seriously enlarged to accommodate the extra-long ‘Blade’ Trigger that is commonly seen on Paintball/Speedsoft Guns. This again is a throwback to the Paintball days, where Full Auto was unavailable/uncommon, and a seriously fast Single Shot Trigger action needed developing. This allows you to conform to Single Shot arena rules, but whilst still throwing out as many BBs per second as possible. The Trigger includes G&G’s ETU System that provides great features such as Low Voltage Cutoff and a Programmable 3rnd Burst Fire. Not only this, but it improves the lifespan of the Trigger by removing the need for Trigger Contacts, and also massively improves the Trigger Response of the Gun. The Stock design at the rear of the Gun is referred to as a ‘Drop Stock’, and features an Adjustable Angle so that you can shoulder the Gun in a variety of different ways. This also means you can happily use a Full Face Mask such as a DYE / WARQ Helmet, and still be able to aim down your sights. The Stock/Buffer Tube is where your Battery should be installed and will require an 11.1v LiPo Stick Battery to work effectively (due to the Low Voltage Cutoff on the MOSFET). Simply slide the Stock off the Buffer Tube by pulling down on the tab in front of the Stock Adjustment Lever.
Included in the box is a 105rnd Mid Cap Magazine with a transparent design that allows you to see how many BBs are remaining. It requires a Speedloader to fill and will feed into the Gun until completely empty, with no rattles like a Hi-Cap. The Mag has indicators to let you know when 100, 90, 60, 50, and 30 BBs are remaining. If you’re looking for either a Gun that can absolutely decimate CQB Arenas and is ready for competitive gameplay or you want something ‘out there that is definitely going to wind up some veteran Airsofter who’s supping a cup of tea in the safe zone, adorned in Woodland DPM and carrying an SLR, then the G&G Armament SSG-1 AEG Rifle is exactly what you’re looking for.
To switch the Gun’s Full Auto Fire selector position to 3 Round Bust you must set the Fire Selector to Semi-Automatic and Hold the trigger for 10 seconds. To reverse the process simply repeat the steps.
PLEASE NOTE: Due to the MOSFET system on the SSG-1 the weapon is only compatible with 11.1v batteries.
