R28 GEN2 - ARMY ARMAMENT

 

FPS: 285 fps with 0.20 g bb's and 268 fps with 0.25 g bb's.

Hop up: standard & adjustable.

Mag Capacity: 26 bb's.

Aluminium slide, Zamak frame and little parts, ABS grips.

 

My opinion and overall comments:

A new and unexpected version of the R28 you will love.
On the aesthetic side, the subtle two-tone paint is of the best effect and the casts rather well made; this is a version without markings, the one with markings isn’t yet on sale.
Operation : MARUI type mechanic, so you can upgrade or modify it very simply. Small pleasant details: ambidextrous safety, phosphorescent sights, rail. And a very pleasant detail: the outer barrel is threaded in 12 mm CCW (anti-clockwise) and sold with a 14 mm CCW silencer adapter. An interesting piece since it doesn’t exist on the market except to spend a lot of money. Army Armament should have given a cleaning rod and a manual with a blueprint of the replica.
On the performance side, I’m quite impressed, the use of gas is particularly well optimized: a kick rather strong and the ability to shoot up to 35 times with a single charge of gas. The power with green gas is 285 fps with 0.20 g bb’s and 268 fps with 0.25 g, which is perfect for a back-up.
This replica is an excellent choice of modern 1911 which will suit to airsoft beginners or experienced.

I bought this pistol not long ago, have now gifted it to a friend, but my MAJOR gripe with the R28 is that i couldn't disassemble it for love nor money, regardless of what approach i took, the parts just didn't come out of their housings at all.

Yes, the threaded muzzle can be a little hard to remove, I just used strength resulting in hand pain but I succeeded.

You can drill a hole in each part so you can put a lever to help yourself ;)

I did a review from the successor of this excellent pistol : The R32 (Sandstorm, Darkstorm, Nightstorm).

And I did in the video a quick tutorial to fix the threaded muzzle problem. Easy and fast modification ;)
