Hi everyone and welcome to the Lair it is a pleasure to see you today for a new overview I’m going to talk about the EDGE series by Specna Arms and more particularly the SA-E12 PDW, that’s trendy! let’s go! and before starting the overview I’d like to thank Specna Arms for their trust and kindness they sent me samples of their EDGE series there’s going to be two videos the one you’re watching and another one about their collaboration with Rock River Arms which is an American company making custom guns it should be released within a fortnight what is Specna Arms? Who? What? Where? well, it is a secret… or not… Specna is a Polish company, it was created a few years ago and most of their products come from Hong Kong and are built and assembled after their own specifications when you’ll see the internals or the hop-up you may think “I’ve seen that before” well, of course, there are not billions of factories so Specna takes components from different companies to assemble their BB-guns the EDGE series is the most expensive one this PDW is sold around 240-250€ it comes in a black cardboard box featuring SPECNA’s logo as well as GATE’s logo because there’s a GATE X-ASR MOSFET plugged to the gun I’ll talk about that later your way of airsoft… It is also written on my T-shirt! and the 4S of Specna Arms Satisfying price Supreme quality of course, they won’t tell you “hey, we’re selling average guns!” Spring quick change and Spectacular range models that’s true, here are all the models they sell well, I know, it is small and blurry I’m shaking, I’ve got no muscles but you can follow the link to Specna Arms website in the video description this way if you’re a player and want to buy a gun, there’s a list of the retailers and if you’re a pro, you can contact Specna to become an official retailer. this PDW gun is available in black or tan/black version this is the black version Let’s open this box in front of your amazed eyes see? there’s noting! A sheet of foam to remove and the fun begins some documents here… a Specna Arms Catalogue a quality certificate including chrono tests, unique serial number and different checks for external condition package content or general performance shots went between 363 and 366 FPS, hop-up released there’s also a bunch of stickers ESA stands for Easy Spring Access if you want to put Specna stickers on your car or your gun case, you can 🙂 then the users’ manual, including English, French, Spanish and Polish text it is a general thing, it is not specific to the PDW there’s a troubleshooting guide then, there’s not only one magazine nope, there are two of them in the box! these are S-mags, for Specna magazines polymer-made mid caps the grip is in the shape of Specna logo nice markings they can hold up to 125 BBs so that’s 250 BBs to start with enough to have fun. they look sturdy I like that after the outro you’ll see the compatibility with some after-market mags I own oh! Desiccant! and a goodie! there are all Specna logos and features printed on it Core, which is another series SAEC system, another quick spring change EDGE, ORION, that’s the gearbox S-MAG, ESA2, Enter & Convert many quick spring change systems at Specna 🙂 sometimes you need tools, sometimes you don’t, it depends on the gun then there’s an M90 spring reminds me of Guarder springs… well, I guess Guarder didn’t make the springs after all there’s also a front grip it is not a QD system, there’s a screw and there’s also a rubber lid, you can put accessories inside the grip looks like we’ve got a full box of items! what’s next… a Mini Tamyia to Dean adapter as well as the MOSFET troubleshooting card depending on the colours of the two LEDs you’ll know if your gun has a problem next… no cleaning rod? but there’s a PDW, let’s have a look! it is cute as hell! of course it is an AR-15 platform, Specna is really focused on AR-15s but a few years ago I made a review of one of their G36s there’s a small tag what do they say? congrats for having bought a Specna Arms Industries product we’re confident that thanks to the high quality and the perfect fit of the elements of this product as well as the rigid quality control you now own an airsoft replica that will fulfil your highest demands as I said before this is the black version it also comes in two-tone version it is light, compact, easy to handle here are its dimensions even if you don’t have muscles it should be easy to carry nice, the stock release is ambidextrous as usual I’m gonna start by the markings Specna markings on the lower receiver including the serial number the fire selector, three positions here SAFE-SEMI-AUTO on the other side an hologram fire selector marking but the selector is not ambidextrous specna arms industries and a sticker with different numbers that’s about it for the markings there’s also a small sticker on the gearbox GF corp, that’s for Gunfire nie zrywyywhaaaat? well, do not disassemble I guess otherwise you’ll void the warranty I’ve stripped the gun without damaging the sticker don’t tell anyone! the PDW stock is nice the sticks are made of steel the pad is made of hard plastic with a nice texture here and grooves at the back quite comfortable and it is not too short to shoulder the support is also made of metal the release is ambidextrous there are four positions the battery goes into the tube here what you can do is press the right release button to remove the stock look at the QD spot here because there’s no sling swivel on this gun and then unscrew the metal tube to uncover the wiring as well as the X-ASR MOSFET it is built by GATE, which is a Polish company so it is a nice collaboration between two Polish companies be aware that there’s no programming, no optical sensors and so forth it is a diagnostic and protection MOSFET it also enhance the gun’s trigger response because the trigger switch now drives the MOSFET which then controls the motor there’s no electric arcs any more, you can use 11.1V LiPo batteries there are two small LEDs to help diagnose if there’s a problem then use the card to know what happened and how to fix it it also protects from reversed polarity, tension surge and so on… that’s nice but the wires are very long Specna claims that the max dimensions of the battery are 15X11x115mm so they’ve put one inside my parcel I should be able to close the tube! I’m not sure… it is not easy at all… well, this part can be stripped too, but there’s no need to remove it while I’m at it, I know I’m not done with the overall presentation but I’ll show you how to replace the spring remove the 3mm Allen screw this is the the ESA, Easy Spring Access now I can reach the spring guide use a 6mm Allen key push, rotate 90° and hold the spring guide we can see that the spring guide has got a ball-bearing now I can replace the spring we’ll go to the chronograph a bit later the spring has been changed within seconds! if you follow my channel you may recognize this pistol grip it has easy access to the motor no tools needed the trigger and trigger guards are classic models so is the magazine release the charging handle does not lock the mock bolt to the rear but we can access the hop-up adjusting wheel it is firm the bolt lock is useless but it is here anyway the handguard is thin, with three additional rails each rail has a QD port of course we can remove the rails using a 2.5mm Allen key and see that it is a keymode handguard so if you don’t need accessories, remove the three rails to get a thin and smooth grip modularity is one of the reasons AR-15 platform is popular the flash hider is a standard model 14mm CCW thread, so you can replace it and the top rail receives the flip-up plastic sights the adjusting tool is not included there are two peep-sights here and the rear sight can be adjusted in windage thanks to this small wheel can you hear the clicks? aiming is fast and easy I know that most of you will mount a red dot sight yep, AR-15s are really popular, you can customize them with many parts and mount many accessories yes, there are many of them on the market but this is because that’s what people buy… let’s plug a battery and see how it performs but first I’m going to mount the fore-grip no QD system here a good old screwdriver will do! why not… here’s how it looks some people like, some don’t PDWs have been trendy for a few years now in airsoft… here’s the look with the magazine it wobbles a bit but I’ve used the gun, it shoots well that’s what matters to me for a regular switch it is not bad as it only sends a signal to the MOSFET to feed the motor it is a small 7.4V battery inside if you play regular semi as I do, reactivity is good enough except if you plan on spamming the trigger like crazy inside there’s an Orion reinforced V2 gearbox you’ll see all the components in my complete review at www.lantredudingo.com in a few weeks in can take M140 springs the internals are not bad for the price, trust me on this one there’s a warranty so even if it breaks, and it WILL break eventually as any other mechanical system there’s a steel piston rack, aluminium nozzle, steel gears, 8mm bearings the airtightness is good shimming is quite nice it is a nice gun for beginners as well as more experienced players take it out of the box and play if you play in France some clubs will ask you to be under 350 FPS to allow auto well, buy a 4€ spring to get as close to 350 as you can and that’s it! speaking about springs, let’s go to the chrono and I’ll be back for the conclusion not bad at all, the two springs give versatility to this PDW we can play anywhere and to get the power we need there’s just a matter of buying extra springs we’re between 12 and 13 BB per second with this small 7.4V battery, that’s enough to have fun I don’t do speedsoft, I don’t do competition I’m fond of aiming and hitting a guy with a couple of BBs instead of spamming like hell I don’t overset my hop-up or shoot overhead to gain 5 meters of range well, I call it fair-play 🙂 So I’m happy with this Specna Arms PDW buy this, a battery, BBS and you’re ready to play without having to modify the gun good internals, GATE MOSFET Specna understands what players want accessories, extra springs and so forth of course it won’t please each and every airsoft player some guys won’t like this grip well, they’ll put something else! I know that as soon as you get a gun you want to change everything on it! if you’re starting airsoft and have a 200-300€ budget, and if you don’t want a nylon fibre gun, this could be another good choice don’t hesitate to tell me what you think of this gun, what you think of Specna I know some of you have been playing with Specna guns for years tell me about it, are you happy?
