The Barrett M82 is a legendary rifle in the firearms community. The massive sniper weapons system is known for its incredible range and immensely powerful round.
The Umarex M82 features 1:1 scale construction with nearly the entire AEG being made of metal and replicates the real thing down the fluted barrel and the way the flash hider attaches to it.
The lower receiver is made of metal and houses the firing controls, gearbox and butt pad. There's not really a separate stock on this gun, it's all just one big piece. The butt pad is very thick rubber piece that will make shouldering the beast a little more comfortable.
The grip is a standard M4 pistol grip, so the user can choose to replace it with any M4 style grip in the market.
The selector switch is metal, and clicks firmly to all three positions; safe, semi, and full auto. The trigger is metal and has a standard V2 gearbox type of trigger pull.
The magwell houses the magazine, which rocks into the gun like an AK mag, by first hooking the front and then rocking the back into place until it locks. The magazine release is activated by pushing the lever forward, then rocking the magazine back out of the gun.
Above the magwell you will find the mock charging handle. This handle is a spring returned design and pulling it back exposes the hop-up adjustment dial, which is an M4 style unit.
The bipod can be folded down to be used. This is accomplished by pulling it down to clear the locking lugs, then rotating the leg to the desired position. The bipod is quickly and easily removed by pulling the pin out, and sliding the bipod off of the mount.
On top of the receiver there is a Picatinny rail that runs almost the whole length of the gun. That allows the attachment of various tactical accessories. This is where the removable carry handle sits (it's not advised to use it to carry the gun, as its weight is enormous).
The model runs on a standard Version 2 Gearbox, making upgrades easy as peas. In stock form, it shoots around 130 m/s which is more than enough to set up an Electric Sniper platform.
The battery is housed in the receiver, just behind the gearbox and there is so much space to house any upgrade that comes to mind...
