Are you saying that Redwolf is the owner of Ares? Or are they in partnership or something?

Hopefully Redwolf is watching this:
In the future, if you ever make another bolt action sniper rifle, these ideas can help to make the best sniper ever on the market:
-AA VSR10 Hopup Chamber is excellent. So keep make it compatible.
-Also hopup adjustable from the top of the rifle. (Make this compatible to the AA Hopup adjuster mod - So it can be adjusted from the top of the rifle)
-VSR10 Bucking with a long nub to create more backspin
-Make the bolt pull just back and forwards. Not up, back, forward and down.
-Do not use a loading ramp to load the bbs as they are prone to jam
-The longer the cylinder the more the rifle is able to be Joule Creeped. This does mean a longer bolt pull but the bb will produce more energy and it will be able to fire further.
-Heavy pistons are better for joule creep
-Longer Springs work better for joule creep
-Cup/Plunger style piston heads can produce more Joule Creep
-Use a wider bore cylinder as this helps with lifting heavier bbs and heavy bbs produce more joule creep since it has more volume
-Tighter inner barrels help with increasing joule creep
-Make a small plastic magazine that can hold a large amount of bbs (So 100 plus bb's). If the mag is small the player can carry more of them.
-Make the rifle as light as possible.
-Make a Long Range Barrel mod
-Make sure the cylinder can handle very big springs. Thick walls and thicker thread on the cylinder head

I don't own one yet but I plan on it. I like the fact that the cylinder is short so the magazine can be placed in the correct spot. That allows the inner barrel to be longer without changing the overall length of the outer barrel. All users need to do is calculate the length inner barrel needed for their heavier rounds. Even if you need a 300mm tightbore in the weapon, and chop the outer barrel down, you essentially have a much much shorter sniper rifle than anything ive seen on the market yet, and a strong base gun out of the box. I usually use .30s and plan on cutting and recrowning the inner barrel (and chopping the outer short) anyway. So maybe I'm missing a bigger problem than that here.

The short cylinder means it does not have much air volume to push out heavy bb's. This means you need to use a shorter barrel than normal and a much bigger spring. This makes for a very hard bolt pull and since it has such a big spring, it may not last so long.
With the current cylinder volume, this gun can never be made into an uber gun. So cool gun but no dice.

Most snipers do not care about magazine placement. They care about performance.

As far as I am aware, mancraft is working on an SDIK kit for the gun, though I dare say they will need to get a bit creative with their system as the striker doesn't use the traditional spring guide stopper. HPA/CO2 will probably be the most viable option for turning this platform into a vsr-competitive rifle. Then again, I haven't seen the hop up chamber yet so I'm not entirely sure just yet :P

Does anyone have inside diameter of the strikers cylinder. Does anyone have a stock stroke length of the piston to calculate barrel volume? Assuming 25.4 mm ID cylinder with a 50.8 mm stroke length. The ratio would be 3.01:1 for a 300x6.02mm barrel. Should yield plenty of power. Of course this is a ballpark estimate. Real values would be better.

It may get the correct cylinder to barrel ratio but you still need a bigger than usual spring to get it to fire as hot as the VSR10. I would guess a much bigger spring. So it will be interesting to hear what people have to say once they have one.

Hey with a spring you can buy off the shelf, a 6.01 Barrel, and some parts that the company I work for is making, you can reliably achieve 2.31 joules with .040g BBs.

Stateside alert!
Evike now carries these rifles, and of course Mancraft has finished their kit for it. Yay! Waiting for some stuff to sell so I can get the funds needed for a new build with the striker.

Amoeba AS-01 Sniper Rifle

I got to see the prototype for the American release of the Ares Amoeba Striker S1. The EF rep had a table. They let me shoot it!

-Let me tell you I'm a little biased: I own a fully realized L96 and VSR 10s. -With that caveat out of the way, let me describe what I found in the Striker.

When you pick it up, it feels like a solid entity. It does not have a tinney feel to the barrel, or a PTS plastic stock filled with cement or a slug of metal. The action, receiver, cylinder and magazine are robust, and present themselves as utilitarian and "tool tough."

Magazine well- it is edged with guide ears that protect against pry torsion, or energetic magazine inserts. Using the mag as a hand rest in standing, will not interfere with the feed, or accuracy. The Mag release is cuped around the trigger guard for the index finger, and has a thumb stem to the rear of the mag well. The spring is heavy so you wont drop a mag. They over built the trigger guard, and the mag release. You will never have to worry about breaking them.

60 round magazines? Or 45? Either way, they are well made and will suffer any abuse a shooter could dish out.

The stock has a removable forend an will have rail variants for after market upgrades. The barrel is brass. The comb and grip of the stock are adjustable.... its a tank in a world of Jeeps.

The gun was shooting at 440fps, and the target speed out of the box is 410-420. With the addition of an M130 AEG spring you will be 490-500 FPS. Evidently that about the limit for speed. Unless you hack the barrel. Good enough in my book. I even liked the short stroke pull of the rifle charging.

I asked what type of sear. The rep said 90 degree. And admitted that the cylinder volume was going to keep it out of the 120yd fantasy we hold onto with the older models. But it was designed to thrive in its "MED to 300ft" area of use.

When the Striker S1 V2 comes out, I will be using one. And I will put it through its paces and do a review of it capability at or past 250 Ft.

To sum It all up:

An quality american company out of Arkansas, making tough reliable airsoft for us "The Players". Rifles designed to last and last. Keep "winning!" Elite Force keeep winning!

Definitely going to get the S1, one of those folding triple C AEG sub gun models.

To be honest, because of the cylinder volume, I would be surprised if it can make it to the 260ft mark.
It would be good to see if someone can make it a rifle that can shoot that far reliably. So not just a one off shot but consistantly. The L96 and the VSR10 can both do it.

I've had this gun since Friday and it can shoot 220 feet with a 3 foot wide grouping (with human error) I also had to aim 2 feet above the target. The gun is entirely stock and I was using crappy JAG arms .30 BBs.

After shooting it 10 minutes ago the trigger decided to stop working. When I pulled the trigger quickly it would work so idk what the deal is with it.

Edit: I took the gun apart and messed around with the trigger box and it seems to be working for now :)

The bolt pull is indeed short, but not smooth. It takes a fair bit of effort to slam home and re-seat the bolt. I have also noticed it likes to chop my .30 BBs in half which I don't appreciate at all..

Hop arm breaking the BBs? Or are they striking the muzzle cap on exit?
