In the movie 9th Company, a character called “Gioconda” spoke about guns and war and said something along the lines of: “Michelangelo was asked, how he makes such beautiful statues out of marble. He answered: 'Easily, I just carve away all the extra.' Guns are beautiful in the same way: they don’t have anything extra in them, just a brutal purpose.” In the movie Gioconda’s friends don’t understand his metaphor, but we do. The lack of excess is beautiful and it’s exactly what LCT guns offer.
The LCT guns are so full of steel they’re almost stalinist. The plastic parts have been manufactured out of sturdy fiber-reinforced polymer and the wooden parts are real wood. Almost makes you want to sing the Soviet Anthem and watch the Victory Day parade. But, enough jokes and dangerous ideologies: The LCT guns have been equipped with excellent outer parts, and the internals are not half bad either. Especially as an airsoft gun the Vityaz is basically an AK equipped with an SMG’s magazine. The bearings are massive 9 mm in diameter and the cylinder and piston heads have been CNC manufactured, the cylinder is chromed and the spring guide has bearings. The gun comes with two magazines, which have been attached to each other with a magazine coupler.
Permission to enjoy, comrade!
LCT started its earthly journey at the beginning of the 1980’s, on the same year Conan the Barbarian came to theaters. LCT started its career as a molding and metalworking company. This tradition can still be seen in the company’s products: the receivers are almost always made of steel, and they beautifully finished to perfection. LCT was also the manufacturer that made the externals for the legendary Inokatsu AK series! LCT guns are so robust that you have no need for a crowbar at home after getting one of these replicas. The company’s modus operandi is to make very high quality and very realistic airsoft guns. And they seem to be doing an excellent job!
Vityaz is a straight blowback submachine gun that fires from a closed bolt, and its basic principle is to offer the users an AK like feel. The gun’s controls are actually the same as in the AK series, even though the structure could have been simplified even further thanks to the straight blowback mechanism.
The Vityaz is widely by the Russian armed forces and police as well as Namibia’s marines.
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/Li-ion 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.
