The modernised version of the FAL, the SA58 AEG is a fantastic short-barrelled, 7.62 style rifle with an electric blowback function.
This JG rifle has a full metal body and an incredible weight and feel to it.
The upper receiver has a 20mm Picatinny rail on top to attach any sights or scopes, as well as built-in front and rear iron sights. The mag release is central on the body making it an ambidextrous magazine release, with the fire selector on the left side with safe, semi, and auto firing modes.
The front handguard, stock, and pistol grip are all made from high-quality ABS plastic for extra comfort when holding the rifle. The battery is situated in the stock and can be accessed by sliding the stock plate down to unclip it, then removing the stock plate.
The SA58 has a huge battery space and we highly recommend using a 9.6v NiMh battery or a 7.4v LiPo battery for the best performance.
To access the hop-up unit, you pull the charging handle back to open the bolt, which then exposes the large hop wheel allowing you to adjust the hop.
The electric blowback bolt functions whenever you fire the AEG, whether it’s loaded or not. It is quite a heavy bolt with a fantastic sound and feel to it.

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.
