It features detailed trademarks which are actually molded into the rifles polymer stock in fine detail and its receiver is built from metal so the heft and balance of the rifle is very similar to that of the real firearm.
The real steel FN P90 is chambered for the wicked high velocity 5.7X28mm round which can go through vehicle windshields and kevlar body armor like a hot knife through butter. While this isn’t something that carries over to the airsoft version, the rifles agility and versatility does. It is so compact that you can easily squeeze through hatches and crawl spaces that you wouldn’t even think about trying with a standard assault rifle. At first glance its ergonomic stock may look a little strange but when you pick it up you’ll find it fits your body so well that it feels like an extension of your arm. In fact the P90 is so easy to handle that you can shoot it nearly as accurately using just one hand as you can with two. And when you bring it up to your shoulder it slides into the firing position so perfectly that you’ll swear it aims itself.

Its gearbox is a full metal version 6 which is revered as the strongest gearbox on the market and it is equipped with steel gears on solid metal bushings. For those who are experienced with modifying guns, you are going to love how easy it is to work on. The gearbox can be removed in less than a minute after simply removing two screws. If you need to clean the barrel, you can take off the upper receiver and remove the barrel in under 10 seconds. It is so simple to work on you will be asking yourself why they do not make all guns like this.When we took the P90 out and put some rounds down range we found it to be exceptionally accurate. A common misconception about the P90 is that it is only useful for close quarters because it is so small that it has no accuracy at long range. This ladies and gentlemen, is hogwash. Although the P90 is arguably the best gun on the market for close quarters, it is also exceptionally effective at longer ranges. Even though it is a mere 20 inches long, its bullpup design allows it to have the same 247mm inner barrel as found in the G36C which is 8 inches longer and 3.5 inches taller than the P90. Also, the barrel group in the E90 is so stable that at long range its accuracy is just as good if not better than an M4. All this translates into a gun that has the performance of a full size assault rifle with the maneuverability of a sub machine gun.
Bottom line, the extreme compactness of this gun combined with its impressive effective range ensures you will excel in any skirmish environment.
Comes with: 8.4v 1100 mah battery pack, 300 mah trickle charger and cleaning rod. Battery charge time: 3.6 hours
Please Note: This rifle is compatible with ECHO 1 E90 standard and high capacity magazines although it is NOT compatible with the ECHO 1 E90 box magazine since it hits the extended rail on this rifle. We find however that you need to round off the edges of the magazines catch in order for them to lock in smoothly. Simply take a knife or a file and round off the bottom edge of square indent in the magazines catch and the magazines will lock in a lot smoother. "
