Silverback new rifle TAC-41

Unlike the SRSA1/2 and HTI that are the replicas of the real steel rifles made by Desert Tech, this time the TAC-41 is a completely made-up rifle with a typical M700- like layout.


- 2.6kg/110cm
- M-Lok handguard and QD mounts.
- uses AEG buckings and barrel (510mm, basically AUG length), the same as the SRSA1 sport version
- uses cylinder internals compatible with the SRS family (except the spring guide), boasts a 41cc cylinder volume
- ambidextrous from the ground up, concept similar to the Well MB06
- barrel is clamped onto the receiver similar to all guns made by Silverback, but is first slided and fixed in rotation by a slot into it similar to the A&K M24
- 40 round mags most likely using a system similar to AWS
- 90 degree sear system similar to the AS02, but with a smarter M4 screwed on type spring guide stopper (so no stupid situations such as the spring guide stopper moving about)
- TDC click wheel adjusted hop up system similar to the KC02

What I like:

+ Click wheel TDC. It's a great system in the KC02, easy to tune with good effects. Hope the hop up chamber is also well designed.
+ Huge cylinder. It's the same volume as the bore up PDI receiver/cylinder set for the VSR iirc. Even teamed up with its pretty long 510mm inner barrel a lack of volume is not likely be a problem.
+ Quick takedown design with a clever and sturdy spring guide stopper design. The VSR spring guide stopper has been a huge issue for me and I'm glad the TAC41 did gave this some emphasis.
+ 90 degree sear system, not a zero trigger design but should be pretty sturdy regardless

What I don't like:

- 2.6kg seems a bit heavy for a gun of this design and construction (especially when compared to the similar AS01 Striker). It's slightly heavier (though almost miniscule in difference) than the SRSA2.
- Looks extremely plain (especially the stock resembles a lot of the SSG10A2/Maple Leaf stock). Silverback did attempt to make it look cooler but the general shape is still too plain, especially when compared to the unique SRS.
- While provides a realistic magazine positioning, the loading mechanism of the AWS is still questionable in reliability (though it is safe to assume it is improved somewhat if Silverback managed to make it a quick detach friendly design).
My loadout:

-Main: Ares Amoeba AS02
- Inner Barrel: Maple Leaf Crazy Jet 310mm 6.04 barrel
- Hop-up bucking: Maple Leaf MR. HOP 60 Degrees
- Spring: Custom
- Cylinder: Edgi Nemo cylinder kit
- Chamber: Action Army blue chamber
- Spring Guide: Edgi Nemo cylinder kit
- Piston: Edgi Nemo cylinder kit
- Scope: Discovery 3-12*42

-Sub: Tokyo Marui 5.1 Hi-Capa

Saw this an hour or two ago on FB.

Like everything but the AEG rubber.

Bout time someone used that barrel design. It's a simpler engineered version of the barrel swap system on a real SRS.

The seer design more like the bulltrig setup. It looks strong as heck. I wish they’d gone with a shorter stroke like the stryker, but fattened the bore by a bunch to have direct loading...

Too heavy, but that's the only gripe I have. Otherwise, holy crap that thing is absolutely sick. If they can get this under $500, it'll be a game changer.

Looks promising, but I won't put too much positive or negative until I see the price tag. Being that it's a bolt action, it probably would not be too difficult to DIY 3D print and design a VSR compatible bucking/barrel/hop up unit. That said, I've seen good enough performance out of the SRS with its normal AEG rubber to have enough faith that it would be good enough with a standard rubber. Looks like it uses an Ares style feed tube which means there will be roughly 10-15 rounds lost off of the first magazine, but at least this tube system is much more reliable than a loading ramp/feed fin.

Looks pretty good
Some AEG hopup systems can work a treat. The Action Army L96 system takes AEG buckings and barrel and it seals 100%. So hopefully this is the same 100% seal as that.
As for the weight, we will decide when we hold one as to what that is like. Often manufacturers or sellers over estimate or under estimate the weight. If they had made it without the adjustable cheek raiser then that may have saved a little weight. (Who uses them in airsoft. Especially when wearing a mask that already raises your face anyway)
Hope that the mag catch does not get knocked easily as it is really annoying losing mags. Especially when they are expensive. Also hope that they do not waist bb's in the feeding tube.
