From the front of the gun comes an orange tipped mock silencer. The front sight is a standard flip up style sight that is adjustable for elevation. The outer barrel is made of polymer and is 5.5 inches. Covering the outer barrel is a 7” quad rail system that provides plenty of rail spaces for accessories such as grip, flashlight, laser, or PEQ box. The rail system is made of durable polymer which also keeps the weight down.
The body is made of the same polymer material as the rail system. The rear sight is adjustable for windage and elevation, it is also removable if another sighting system such as red dot sight or scope is preferred. The dust cover on the Gen 2 series can be easily opened to access the hop up unit, otherwise the dust cover will stay open as the default position with a mock bolt plate to prevent any unwanted debris from entering the hop up or the gearbox. All Gen 2 AEGs have a sling adapter on its comfortable 6 position retractable crane stock. The battery housing is located inside the crane stock, and the space inside the stock can accommodate a 9.6V NiMH Nunchuck battery.
The gearbox is a full metal V2 gearbox that is compatible with an extensive variety of aftermarket replacement or upgrade parts. Based on the gearbox specs, it is recommended to use this rifle with a 9.6v NiMH battery or a 7.4v Lipo battery. 11.1v Lipo batteries are more powerful and can be used to power the rifle to achieve a higher rate of fire and crispier trigger response but at the cost of a higher rate of wear and tear on the rifle.
All Lancer Tactical Gen 2 series come with the same hop up and barrel set up: aluminum inner barrel, plastic hop up and standard bucking. Just like the gear box, all major components listed above can be replaced or upgraded with aftermarket parts to achieve better accuracy.
