This is retro-review I opted to do, as this rifle surprised me in several areas with innovative functions. Sadly to see that CalTek/Soldier Story didn’t follow up on this in the future, considering this figure was alreay released back in 2012.
However, there are also drawbacks and inaccuracies/bad executions involved.
First of all, it can be fully disassembled like any AR-15/HK416.
Please note, that this OBR rifle actually provided two removable takedown pins. The current and older SS rifles never had this as far as I can remember. However, I obtained two of these and the other rifle had the front pin glued in and wasn’t functional at all.
The bolt and charging handle came in two parts, like Easy Simple started to do some time ago, which adds more realism.
Extractor is well done.
This is what looks like to be an older solution of implementing a spring into the cocking mechanism.
The pin for this very OBR rifle is bigger in diameter and only sits on top of the buffer tube and is not inserted.
Muzzle can be detached, but offers no detail on the barrel
One huge thing for me is the fully functional stock
Adjustable cheek piece. Sits a bit loose though and doesn’t come with any locking mechanism.
Sling swivel can be removed
The locking mechanism works like the real life counterpart
Push the lever and the whole pin will travel downwards
The LaRue POD cannot be removed without breaking it. I attempted it with my other rifle. Here an option to use it:
The plain rifle
Fire selector is fixed into place. I looked inside and checked the mechanism. It’s not clear to me, if it was supposed to work or not, but the generous amount of applied paint might have done the rest to restrict if from moving.
Barrel comes as is. Rails and other moduls are glued in
Working charging handle
Yellow lense for mini red dot provided
The style of these angled iron sights is highly unique and I dare to say that CalTek were the first to introduce angled sights in the first place.
Even a nicer surprise when you were relying on the original preview images which showed sth completely different with these flip up sights
Weapon light with switch
The flap to the light can be opened
Also the lever can be operated
The bipod is quite funny. Not only because of the fact that it’s asymmetrical, but also of the fact that SS didn’t manage to fix this for the e.g. SS096 SDU figure a few years later.
Legs are extendable and remain in place nicely
Silencer (forgot it during my shoot)
The fit is horribly loose. It will fall straight off and can be psuhed all the way down (won’t sit on the muzzle).
IndexClips. These are used to attach to your rail, directly next to/touching any attachment. This way you can remove lasers or others for any purpose and reinstall at exactly the same place very quickly. Also helpful at night when visibility is low.
Front sling swivel is stiff and can’t be adjusted
Only one row of bullets shown
Removable ranger plate
Sling looks interesting
Hooks are non-functional, but fit their purpose
This piece is detachable via velcro
Fully geared rifle
