Beginning with the introduction of four new Sportline AEG's, we're bringing you a revitalized Strike Systems brand.
The Strike System MX18 Carbine has a polymer body, polymer rail handguard, and a metal outer barrel. The new Strike System rifle is a value pack, which includes a battery and charger - the perfect entry-level rifle for new players.
The MX18 comes out of the box with a MOSFET unit, which improves trigger response and makes battery usage more optimal. This all translates into the rifle being more durable over time.
The MX18 Carbine comes with a newly designed ‘Crane’ stock allowing for better cheek rest during engagements. The compartment located in the back of the stock is easily accessible and can store different sorts of battery sizes to accommodate all players' battery choice. The stock is adjustable and easy to use.
The ergonomic pistol grip is designed to fit all hand sizes while maintaining a positive grip feel and control, boosting comfort during extended usage.
The MX18 comes with both front and rear Polymer flip-up sights. Easy to deploy, the flip-up sights acts as back-up sights if the players Red dot or scope should fail during the heat of battle. The sights are adjustable.
The rail handguard features Picatinny rails giving the player the possibility to attach tactical accessories such as lights, lasers, grenade launchers, etc.
The monolithic handguard merges seamlessly with the upper receiver, giving the player even more real estate to add accessories and adds a more stable platform.
Included with the rifle is a 300 rd polymer hi-cap magazine. The polymer construction keeps the magazine lightweight, allowing the player to carry more magazines onto the battlefield without unwanted weight.

To buy an airsoft weapon in the UK you must have a valid airsoft defence.
This is not a licence, it is basically just proof that you intend to buy an airsoft weapon for use in airsoft.
An airsoft defence could be a UKARA or membership with the British Airsoft Club, and various other forms of defence.
You can only obtain an airsoft defence once you are over the age of 18.
To get an airsoft defence the law is that you should play at least 3 games of airsoft, and that you must have been playing for at least two months.
You can still buy an airsoft gun without a defence, provided you are 18 or older. If you choose to do this we would, by law, two tone (paint in a bright colour) parts of your chosen weapon. This is because an airsoft gun is considered a RIF aka Realistic Imitation Firearm, because they are so close to the real steel, whereas when you paint parts of it in a bright colour it becomes an IF aka Imitation Firearm. The reason being that the bright colours make it look less realistic to the public, and therefor less likely to be mistaken as real, were it to be used for any other purpose than airsoft.
When you order a gun from us you will need to add your defence details in the comments section of the cart. If you do not have a defence you will need to write the colour that you wish to be used for two toning your airsoft weapon.
Here is what's stated in the VCRA (Violent Crime Reduction) Act:
For airsoft skirmishing, the Association of British Airsoft is putting in place arrangements to allow retailers to check that individual purchasers are members of a genuine skirmishing club or site. The key elements of these arrangements are:
1. new players must play at least 3 (three) times in a period of not less than two months before being offered membership
2. membership cards with a photograph and recognised format will be issued for production to retailers
3. A central database will be set up for retailers to cross-check a purchaser’s details
4. member’s entry on the database will be deleted if unused for 12 months.
The defence for airsoft skirmishing can apply to individual players because their purchase of realistic imitation firearms for this purpose is considered part of the “holding” of a skirmishing event.
