Bruce of BB2K Airsoft takes an iconic rifle of the British for this video review, the Ares L1A1 SLR AEG... "The L1A1 SLR and the FN FAL are among the classics of weapon technology. It is one of the top 10 weapons of the world. 'The Right Arm of the Free World"' has been implemented by ARES perfectly in airsoft and thought of all the subtleties. Only a GBB would increase this replica's value even further."

It's finally a reality. The King Arms British L1A1 SLR (Self Loading Rifle) was announced last year and has been a topic of discussion among British airsofters. There are some high expectations on this rifle as the quality of the King Arms FN Fusil Automatique LÃ©ger (Light Automatic Rifle) or FAL replicas were praised in terms of accuracy and performance. Since the L1A1 SLR is based on the Belgian FN FAL, it's no wonder that King Arms started to work on the British L1A1 SLR after a year of the FN FAL AEG release.
