Our take: Elite Force has finally released their most highly anticipated airsoft sniper rifle, the HK SL9 SD AEG! This top tier airsoft AEG sniper rifle is manufactured by ARES, with a full metal Version 3 gearbox, a high torque motor, and an integrated mock suppressor which covers its long precision inner barrel. Unlike traditional sniper rifles, this NEW HK SL9 SD features both semi and full auto fire modes, allowing you to take quick follow-up shots and suppress when needed. If these features weren’t enough, ARES has also installed the electric blowback system into their HK SL9 SD AEG, providing a snappy report after each shot. This is a must have rifle for any airsoft sniper, providing long range accuracy with a heavy volume of fire!
The HK SL9 SD is Heckler & Koch’s modern update to their wildly popular SL8 civilian rifle. Known for their precision accuracy, unique aesthetics and ergonomic contours, the SL8 series of rifles quickly became one of the most sought after target shooting rifles! ARES has perfectly replicated the externals of the HK SL9 SD, from the thumb-hole stock, to the adjustable cheek risers and stock extensions. One of the features that is different on the airsoft version is its ability to fire in both semi and full auto modes. This feature comes in handy when suppressing your opposition.
The Elite Force HK SL9 SD AEG features a nylon polymer stock and handguard, which make the rifle both incredibly durable and amazingly lightweight. The free float outer barrel and integrated mock suppressor are crafted from aluminum alloy, and combined measure close to two feet! Although this rifle is one of the larger rifles on the market, its adjustable cheek risers and stock extensions allow nearly any size player to comfortably wield the rifle on the field. Attaching optics to the SL9 AEG is easy, thanks to its foot long top optics rail, with plenty of space for even the largest magnifies sniper scopes. Lastly, no sniper rifle is complete without a bipod, which is why Elite Force included a full metal, spring loaded bipod with their SL9 AEG. This bipod mounts directly to the bottom of the handguard, and provides an incredibly stable shooting platform.

Battery Charger Recommendation: Although this fully automatic airsoft rifle comes with a standard wall charger to charge the battery, Airsoft Megastore recommends the use of a smart charger to avoid overcharging the battery (overcharged batteries may cause decreased airsoft gun performance and may shorten battery life significantly). Smart chargers not only shorten charge time significantly (up to 800% faster charging), but more importantly, also automatically shut off once the battery is fully charged to avoid overcharged batteries.
