Gas rifles are relatively simple but they do require a technical level of confidence to maintain them in good condition. They also have limitations in terms of magazine capacity and sub optimal performance in colder temperatures. As they are expensive, please consider if such an item meets your game play requirements and if you have the required level of technical confidence.
We do not advise this item to be purchased if you are new to Airsoft.
Please note that the velocity/muzzle energy of this item can vary according to gas type used and ambient temperature.
The WE 888C is the first gas blowback version of the HK416C. This rifle uses the same tried and trusted internal components as used in the M4 and standard 888 (HK416D).
Super compact sliding stock and the very ergonomic grip are immediately obvious. RIS rail and other external features are also to a very high quality finish.
Maybe it is the absence of the traditional stock but this gun definitely has a clear ring tone when the bolt catch is released. Also seems to have more recoil as well.
We recommend that this rifle should be fitted with either a RA-TECH NPAS kit or a FG-Airsoft LFS Restrictor Disc so the power output can be adjusted/set according to site requirements.
See the FG-Airsoft LFS Disc here.
