This is the AWF (Arctic Warfare Folding) variant of the L96 Sniper Rifle, a new addition to WELL’s extremely popular range of competition spec spring bolt action airsoft rifles. While the MB01 is internally similar to the Maruzen, this one is compatible with the Tokyo Marui version instead.
The folding stock is useful for transportation; another big reason is that with the gun folded a sniper blends in better with other troops making him less likely to be singled out by an enemy sniper in an ambush. Other nice features that carry over from the real thing are the adjustable rear stock stand and larger magazine capacity.
The barrel and bolt system is all metal, as well as the hinge, weaver rail and release catches, this is a tough weapon built to last. The stock feels solid, made from impact resistant ABS plastic, injection moulded orange for VRA compliance. Compatible with TM L96 magazines, MB01 magazines do not fit. As with all items of this calibre the fine details matter so using ultra grade BB and applying airsoft safe silicone oil to reduce friction and improve range and accuracy.
