Vigor L85A1 SA80 Type Airsoft Gun In Blue
The L85A2 SA80 (Small Arms for the 1980s) is a replica of the Enfield L85A2 (SA80) that has been the standard issue service rifle of the British Armed Forces since 1987 and used in current operations in Afghanistan.
This gun is a good performance spring gun.
This gun features a handle and the mag of course.
The gun looks a bit cheap but certainly doesn’t feel it when you fire it or just when carrying it.
I found the cocking mechanism a bit stiff and I often had to rest it and then pull it back.
However, this pays off as this gun delivers a huge 320 FPS, extremely good for a low cost spring gun.
The magazine holds around 400 bullets, but I found this magazine quite frustrating.
the reloading process takes time so may not by ideal for a skirmish but great for target practise.
The accuracy is also very good given its price and I would say that this gun gives about the same performance as a bb Sniper Rifle above its price!
we also sell this bb gun cheaper with a flashlight and scope here (L85A2 Version)
Mag Capacity: 400
Rate of Fire: Spring- as fast as you can pull the trigger (and cock it)
Working Safety: Yes
Accessories: Handle, pack of 50 bb pellets.
Replica Name: L85A1 (currently used in the British army)
The length of the airsoft gun: Approx 78.5cm long and approx 31cm in height.
it requires no gas or batteries to operate
Useful, but could be better

Purchased to use in lessons to cadets in the parts of the weapon, how to carry it, marksmanship principles etc.
As a rifle it is good. The parts are all there, even if some are non functioning and it is life size. There were two main faults though. 1: The front sling loop is on the wrong side of the rifle, so demonstrating fitting a sling is not possible. (I fixed this by taking the hand guard off and drilling a new hole to move it).
2: The reason only 3 stars - the safety catch works the wrong way round. This, to me, is a major issue for using this as a teaching aid, as it potentially encourages incorrect safety behaviour. (Haven't tried to take the body apart yet)
Overall a good purchase, but if you can fix these two issues, it would be a great purchase, value for money and an excellent teaching aid for those without access to "live" weapons.
