    I'm interested in possibly picking up an L85A3 that is either made of Nylon/Polymer, Aluminum or Stamped Steel such as the Ares model I'm referencing. So, I'm wondering if any of you know anything about it personally? Is it any good? Worth the price? Feels good in the hands? Works well? recommendations for mods?

    Additionally, does it have any problems?

    I'm actually more interested in why I shouldn't buy it more than why I should. I love modding and teching but I don't wanna buy into a platform that needs basically everything overhauled.

    With Supply Chain being upside down right now, I wouldn't consider this as an item you can buy until it's released.

    And it still has Keymod...:p_

    Makes sense. Is keymod not a good feature to be looking for anymore? Last I heard, people liked Mlok and Keymod equally (but that was a couple years ago).

    Like and making are two different things.

    MLOK is the Future, Keymod was put on the end list about 3 years ago.

    All modern rails is MLOK now...

    Well! Learn something new every day.

    Thankfully my DT4 is MLOK. Do you happen to know of a good place to find MLOK attachments besides Evike? I want to try someone else out.

    450 with .20g? You know you won't be able to use that at most fields, right?

    You would need a M130-M135 to hit that speed.

    Oh, sorry I misread that.

    M120 will keep you at most allowable upper limits.
