Tradesoft’s own beginner’s starter kit is a versatile and easy choice for especially new players. Apart from goggles, the package includes everything you need to start playing! Actually, on top the gun, the package also includes separately sold products found to be of good quality.
The BBs that come with the package are so called biodegradable BBs, which allow you to play in areas that require bio BBs (which are usually most of the game fields). The BB weight (0.25 g) has been chosen to match the muzzle velocity to maximize accuracy.
When purchased separately the products cost 229.80 €. Which means you save over 30 €!
The package does not include safety goggles, because this way the user can choose if he/she wants to wear a full face mask or just goggles, or goggles and a lower face mask. So remember to check out our goggle and mask selection, to safely protect your eyesight in every situation. For someone looking for a full face mask, we have a good – if not the best option, which we can recommend with many years of experience, the Sansei SG-5.
The Story of the German Smaller Caliber Gewehr
This is the firearm that replaced its predecessors the G3 series’ guns in the 1990s, because they no longer met today’s needs in the world of firearms. The 7.62 mm cartridge, known from G3 models was replaced with a NATO 5.56×45 mm, and the main body material was almost completely replaced with light polymer. The parts were also designed to be more customizable, allowing the use of tactical accessories like grips and sights, and the use of the same body for different purposes.
Several special models have been released of the traditional rifle, based on the soldier’s task and other special requirements by the military in a given country. The different models have been clearly marked with letter abbreviations. The models of the airsoft world mainly follow the markings from the respective firearms, but e.g. when it comes to sights, the letter abbreviations are not entirely valid.
C, “Compact”: The model is the smallest of the series’ guns and it has, among other things, a shorter hand guard and outer barrel than in the shorter K model. The gun has more open and shorter flash hider but the iron sights and the sight mount are still the same.
K, “Kurz”: (=short): The model has a shorter hand guard and outer barrel than in the rifle version. The K model has a scope with either 1.5x or 3x magnification or the traditional iron sights (and sight mount).
V, “Variante”: (=variant or modification): Quite like its role model, but the sight is a scope which is equipped with 1.5x or 3x magnification. In airsoft guns, the stock is often a folding collapsible stock with a cheek rest.
E, “Export”: In firearms, the E and V models refer to the same thing, but in the airsoft models, you can sometimes see both of the markings together. In other words, “KV” and “KVE” models refer to the same thing.
MG, “MaschinenGewehr”: (=machine gun): A light machine gun which has a long hand guard and outer barrel and is often equipped with a bipod. Unlike the rest of the models, this is named a bit weirdly “MG36”.
Battery and charger included
The battery and charged provided with this gun have been included by us. To make sure the warranty of your gun is valid, you may use the battery provided with this gun or 7.4V LiPo or 8.4V and 9.6V NiCd/NiMH batteries with a maximum capacity of 3100mAh. Using a battery with a higher nominal voltage or capacity voids the warranty.
Are you not sure which battery fits in your gun? Check the nickel battery compatibility table in Tradetech.
Each gun individually tested by us:
The functionality of all our guns is tested and the muzzle velocity measured before shipping. The velocity is measured with a 0.20 g BB and the final muzzle velocity is calculated from the average of five (5) shots. In fact, the muzzle velocities you see in our online shop are approximations reported by the supplier or manufacturer. Thus, the actual muzzle velocity of your gun may differ from the approximation upwards or downwards. However, we always mark the final muzzle velocity on the maintenance and user manual provided with the gun.
