As a replacement of the aged L42 Enfiield sniper rifles, L96 was designed by the Accuracy International, England, and was chosen by the British Army in the early 80's.
Action are well known for all their upgradable parts for many different kinds of airsoft guns. Now they've decided they want a little slice of the action and so have made their own sniper rifle, the Type 96. The Type 96 is well known for its accuracy within the airsoft community but it's also got to do with the internals.
Internally, it's all ACTION parts which includes the hop up unit and the trigger unit. It is compatible with Maruzen parts so you don't have to worry about upgrading it if you want to. That's not the most unique thing about it though.
When you open the box, it comes in two parts but you don't have to worry about putting it together as it's only 2 parts. It comes with screws, screw drivers and allen keys so they've prepared everything for you! The outer barrel is made out of metal and has a very unique look with grooves going from the middle to the end. There are holes in the end for 'ventilation' but it's just for looks in this case. The body is made out of Polymer with water transfer coating on it. It comes in BLACK, OLIVE DRAB and ATACS which are all very unique.
You may need to add a little bit of oil to it but once you do, the bolt spring action will be very smooth and will fire 440 fps out of the box which is a WAD of power!
