First Time I've ever heard the word Vagaries so that will be added to my personal dictionary :)

At this point it's just fingers crossed for the price

Looks like the airsoft magazine is in the same location as the real steel magazine, plastic, probably removable yet only holds 30 rounds?
I guess there will be a L96 style loading arm to drag bbs from the mag to the hop up.

Red wolf have posted today that the release date has been put back to end of November because they are waiting for parts. Might be in time for Christmas at this rate. :evil:

Has anyone handled one of these in the flesh yet?

Yeh I fondled one at Fire Support - they have some for £649 plus £30 per mag!!


really heavy bolt pull but looked solid enough, didnt have a chance to shoot it. Wood looks overly dark. Nice rifle but at this price not a goer even for me

I’ve got one. Not skirmished it yet but put a couple of mags through to set the hop and chrono it, it’s hitting the back of the 60 yd range at Ford consistently with 0.28 bbs. There’s is much consternation on various Facebook groups that the rifle is terrible, it’s made in Asia and won’t work over here, or it’s overpriced.
Well so far, I’m very happy with it. Yes the spring is quite heavy, it takes a wee bit of effort to pull back and push home. I think a lot of people’s problems is they are cocking it wrong. I always place my thumb on the back of the bolt, lift the bolt and pull back, in straight alignment, I then send the bolt home pushing with my thumb and gently putting the bolt back in place. That’s the way I used to use my vsr and it’s the way I do all airsoft spring bolties.
The rifle is lighter than the real thing by about a kilo but still feels nice and solid, like any airsoft gun, it's not going to take the abuse of a real steel gun. I’ll give it a go at oosterbreek but I’m sure my poor aim and the fact that I’m firing 6mm bbs rather than a 303 round will affect my results more than the rifle.

I'm looking at getting one of these too, being in Canada now I can't get an s&s one, is it worth it, I'm looking at around the $800cad in the end with 5 mags.

Hey all ,

Just a heads up with RWA many if not all the rifles have a factory fault with the bolt system. Mine had metal ball bearings that came out and the rifle bolt system was completely FUBAR. I recommend you contact your supplier and have the rifle to be serviced. If i remember rightly Zero you purchased from the same place i did : the Grange. Mine is currently being serviced by the lovely technician over there, you might want to get in contact( As i was told by him that RWA were pretty adamant in having all the Lee enfields refitted with the new bolt system).

Regards,
Will

Thanks for the heads up. I'll be skirmishing it on Saturday so see how I get on but I'll be on the look out for ball bearings and see what it's like after the event

For another kick in the guts - I have just got back from Hong Kong where they are retailing at £420ish not £650.......

WillG you were correct, I had feed issues on Saturday so I called the shop at the Grange yesterday and the Enfield is being picked up by a courier and sent back to have the issues sorted. No troubles and a professional service from the shop.
