Have you ever heard the saying KISS? Which means “Keep it simple, stupid”. The Amoeba 009 is just that: functioning and simple BB shooter, whose list of features is easy to upgrade to be even more ambitious thanks to its modular hand guard.
Unlike usual, you can strip the hand guard completely of rail sections, which makes it comfortable to hold on to also with a C-clamp that goes over the barrel. Similarly, you can attach the included rail sections to lengthen the top rail to a more traditional model. Attachment points are found in eight sides. In addition to the modular hand guard the gun is equipped with a speed trigger.
What on earth is AR? (history of the firearm)
AR-10 is a military rifle designed at the end of 1950s. It was originally designed by ArmaLite and uses 7.62 mm cartridges. It was the forerunner of the world-famous M16 rifle which uses a 5.56×45 mm cartridge and is designed by Colt (the civilian version is called AR-15). The AR series’ guns are often referred to as Colt or M4/M16.
Good ergonomics and light aluminum body made the M16 rifle a very good gun and hundreds of variants of the gun have been made this far. After the invention of the Picatinny rail, a removable carrying handle and/or sight mount has been added to practically all M4/M16 series’ guns. Since the introduction of the picatinny rail, the number of accessories has also grown exponentially which can also be seen in the huge number of spare parts meant for airsoft guns as well.
EFCS – Electronic Firing Control System
EFCS is a MOSFET unit by ARES that replaces the whole trigger switch and it resembles a bit the Airsoft Systems ASCU or the MOSFET unit found in ASG Scorpion EVO 3A1. It considerably improves trigger feel, durability of the electric parts and also current circulation. Like the advanced MOSFET/micro switch units, EFCS also monitors the movement of the sector gear which helps it to prevent the gearbox getting jammed especially in semi-auto. The unit stops feeding power to the motor only after the shot has been completed, regardless of how long you push the trigger.
EFCS units are also capable of firing three round bursts! The programmable features are available with programming module. Besides burst, you can also set the gun to shoot only semiauto.
Remember to get a suitable battery and charger
Battery and charger are not included with this gun. To make sure the warranty of your gun is valid, you may use 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.
