On the first glance at the Knight’s SR16 you will notice the textured body which is a strong and durable nylon fiber material and is able to handle the stresses of an airsoft game and are used by several fields as a rental option; just another example of how strong and light weight the rifle is. The front hand guard is a keymod URX4 system and is constructed out of metal and comes with the 3 rail panels. The metal micro flip up sights are included as well. The rail kit and hand guard would cost up to $150 if you bought it separate but the parts are included to make it a perfect Knight’s SR16 for the Airsoft player. The body is that of a standard M4 with the parts and fire controls to keep the parts and operation simple and allow for more upgrades later on.

To access the hop up you will find the dust cover on the right side. Pull back the charging handle to find the standard hop up unit. The Knight’s SR16 will feature the ambi option of the bolt release and fire selector but they are just mock parts to keep the rifle simple and lower on maintenance and more options for upgrading later on.

The bright orange tip on the barrel has two functions. One to look cool designate it is an airsoft rifle and the other function is to allow the fitment of our MK1 mock suppressor. With the MK1 mock suppressor attached you have the option to install a longer inner barrel for increased fps and accuracy.

Wanting to boost the rate of fire or ROF of your Knight’s SR16? You can do that with the ease by using the Echo1 Lipo #1. This 11.1v lipo will dramatically boost the ROF and give you a faster trigger response with the super charged battery pack.

The Knight’s SR16 by Echo1 is already a great rifle on the outside with all the parts it comes with but the gearbox and hop up unit makes it even better for the price. The hop up unit is a one piece unit for a more consistent feet per second or FPS and the installation of the MadBull bucking to give that better FPS and accuracy. The gearbox is built very well and made to last years. Check out the Echo1 Tech Support video here on the full take down of the Knight’s SR16.

As you can see the Knight’s SR16 series would be a great choice for you to buy due to all the internal and external features that save you money if you built it yourself and this gives you more time on the field to have fun. You can find the Knight’s SR16 models on the Echo1Shop.com or you local store.

JAG Precision blog

The current model is the Troy MRF-C Gen2 which has a host of Troy features while still using the quad rail. On the MRF-C you will find the metal quad rail with the flip up sights, the Battle Axe stock, the CQB grip and the new trigger guard. The body on the MRF-C Gen2 will be the standard plastic body with a two piece hop up unit. You can build the rifle with the MadBull TRX kits but this is where the newer TRX comes into play as a completed rifle and it will have a metal body and one piece hop up unit that will be the first noticeable improvement besides the metal TRX hand guard. Wanting to learn more about the Troy MRF-C Gen2 you can check out the Echo1 Troy MRF-C Gen 2 / Review and Gameplay video.

On a closer look of the Troy TRX you will find the body pins with the allen screw feature to secure the metal body together. The Troy Industries logos are clear and present on the rifle along with a serial number on the upper receiver.

 

Echo1 Troy TRX models

The Troy TRX model will be available in three lengths as shown with a shorter CQB version and a mid length and then a full size option for the various uses players might have. With the TRX tubular hand guard the option for aftermarket rail sections like the firearm counterpart will be available and even the unique Squid Grips that pop into the vented holes.

 

Troy Airsoft battle sights

The flip up metal sights are constructed out of metal and have a release button the lock the posts up and to prevent any failure. Both the front and rear sights have the Troy Industries trade marks and the “Milsim Only” designation to signify these are only for airsoft rifles.

 

Echo1 TRX hop up

Pulling back on the charging handle will reveal the hop up unit with is a one piece polycarb unit with a MadBull bucking. Using the traditional style for great a great air seal and being compatible with aftermarket units is key for fully customizing the Troy TRX if needed.

 

Troy Airsoft CQB grip

On a closer look of the updated parts you will see the Troy Battle Axe pistol grip. This Battle Axe pistol grip is a longer version than the real option and this is so a long type motor can be used. The pistol grip will have a scale texture on the side panels and the smooth front and back without any finger ridges to cause fatigue. The bottom of the grip has a vented plate for the motor and cool down after extended use.

 

The trigger guard is not the traditional flat option but now has the subtle curve in the front section to allow for gloves to be worn by the user. The part can be removed if desired but a nice touch to have it included right out of the box.

The extended magazine release is a great upgrade part due in the fact it makes the magazine change easier and it comes standard on the rifle. You will see how the extended plate is just above the trigger making the distance shorter and faster and able to get a fresh magazine in the rifle.
