Well guys this one is pretty amazing, ICS really have listened and not only will they release the L85A2 with an intended release date of Feb. But they have just announced to me that they will also release the L86 LSW.

Not only that but the front end will be released as a seperate kit for those owning the L85 and want to switch it over to the L86.

Anyway, here she is!

Nice alternative to the pricey STAR version. Was the STAR ever any good anyway?

Bring out the SG55x's ICS!

Is it too late to make sure the bipod works properly?

I had cash in my hand to buy a star and the bipod was so wrong I didn't bother.

On the real deal there is a little sliding lock to hold the legs in the stowed position (where the white thing is on the ICS picture) and when the bipod legs deploy they lock out so that you can lean your weight forward onto the bipod.
On the Star one they just fold.
You have to close the legs together before they can fold back up under the barrel on the real deal. If you want I can do a drawing of the mechanism.

Can you ask them for me, it is a big issue.

I suppose i have to ask,are they intending to make a SUSAT now or at any time soon?A red dot would be a money maker with all the Army R85s knocking about.

oh sweet do you recon the front end will fit the r85 because if it does this is most definatley on my wishlist along with a susat if they make one, which would be a big money maker if it is cheaper than the star offering.

Wow, wow and WOW! hot-swappable front end to the LSW? What? ICS never cease to amaze me - fantastic!

I guess that's quite a big kit, new foregrip, outer barrel, inner barrel, heat shield, bi-pod (nice one amateur stuntman, good advice), and new butt plate, and grip?

Awesome thanks again Far East - I look at the Arnies news page at least twice a day for these ICS developments!

Have you posted the pictures of the L85 A2 from their website? http://www.icsbb.com/eicsbb/page3.asp?bignum=8&picid=792

Personally I would like the Susat with the same internals as the real steel, with glowing tip reticle - but perhaps there can be two options; X4 magnification and no magnification. Please don't make a red dot as such as I like the Susat's reticle.

thanks ICS and Far East - I can't wait! biggrin.gif

Mmmmmm.... This just climbed into top-3 of my 'next complete gun' list. If it's more affordable than the STAR, then it's a winner almost straight off.

Any idea on the timeframe?

Hey FarEast! Current models of the L85 from G&G/ARMY does not accept the SUSAT scope, however does ICS intend to to have thier carry handle removable to use a real SUSAT scope? The problem with dimensions of the reciever proved to be problem that did not allow scopes to be mounted.

And by far this will have a metal gearbox of course, however would it be the most game-friendly AEG?

Thanks

I think the scope mount was one of the things mentioned to ICS when they first asked for comment on their design a few months back. I'm pretty sure I remember reading that they've since made accomodation for different types of scope.

I thought a Galil was seen in the thread FarEast made of 'tantalizing' stuff seen at ICS for possible 2008 daylight?

Yes, but only in French Pig Latin.
