Spring rifle perfect for target shooting or army cadet training
It is a 1/1 scale of the British L85A2 SA80 that is the standard rifle for the British armed forces who have used the SA80 in all conflicts since its debut in the early 1980s, including Northern Ireland, the Gulf War, Bosnia, Kosovo, Sierra Leone, Afghanistan and Iraq. Sometimes British forces have even used this model with fixed bayonets on occasions in Afghanistan and Iraq.
The L85 is a "bullpup" type of rifle, meaning it is a rifle where its action and magazine are located behind its trigger. The chief advantage of a "bullpup" rifle is that the weapon's length can be significantly shortened without decreasing the guns barrel length. This enables a "bullpup" rifle to be manoeuvred in compact locations and concealed more efficiently than a conventional weapon with a similar barrel length, and preserves the benefits of a longer barrel in muzzle velocity and accuracy while reducing the weapons weight.
With this bb gun version of the L85 SA80 you get an authenticly depicted reproduction, that we often sell to air, sea and army cadets for them to practice with so when they get hold of the real thing they are a little more familiar with it.
All of the plastic furniture is in the same place as the real gun, and it's a 1:1 Scale model although it's a bit lighter than the real thing.
This model comes with a flip up iron sight and a short rail on the underside heat guard for attaching extra accessories to it.
In this package, (the A2 version) you also get some excellent extras to add to the gun, including and foregrip, flashlight and a scope, all of those parts fit on the guns rail system but can all be removed from the bb gun if you want to.
The rifle's magazine is removable, and the mag release is located in the same place as the real steel version.
The L85's magazine holds around 400 bb pellets. (This bb gun also comes with a small pack of bb pellets to get you going, but we recommend you don't use them and get some better ones when you get the gun.)
The performance of this spring powered gun is good, and with a manufacturer quoted performance of 400 fps its not lacking in the power department, on testing shots where accurate (comparable with some cheap snipers), as its single shot its not designed for skirmishes, but it is a good choice starter bb gun for target practice & offers excellent value, performance and build for a low-cost spring gun.
The bb gun comes in a factory finished two-tone blue/ and black colour so you won't need a ukara membership to buy one from bbguns4less.co.uk.
This Vigor branded bb gun is a Spring rifle, so that means it's powered by a spring inside the rifle, and that must be cocked via the cocking lever on the side of the gun before each shot for it to work.
but as it is a spring powered rifle, It's economical to use and easily maintained as it requires no gas or batteries to work it.
If you're looking for a cheap airsoft bb rifle that's fun, reliable to use for target shooting or one that will also look great in your collection.
the new version of this gun comes in the light metallic blue colour and not the dark blue in the photo

this rifle is great its the best in price for this type of rifle and im very happy with the L85A2 SA80
Posted by neil rose on 15th Feb 2021
this sa80 rifle is great im very happy with it the detail is so close to the real thing.
Cheap and cheerful

For the price it's and ok bit of kit.
It's let down in my opinion by the safety working the opposite way to the real weapon, and the front sling loop being on the wrong side. Sort those issue and this would be a superb training aid.
Strong Single Shot Springer

This is an excellent single shot springer for the back garden' plenty of power and pretty accurate as well, what more could you ask for.
It is easy to assemble and ready to use within minutes.
Hours of Fun in Responsible Hands.
Good for new players

I bought this and its not bad for the price it almost acts as a sniper you cant dream of getting close with a spring action.
Giving that it has 400fps where i go my min engagement distance is 20m im classed as a sniper so thats what i did.
bought a gillie suit and sprayed the gun. This gun really supports sniper but dont think its good for close.
Reloading can be annoying because you have to shake the magazine to get bbs on to the spring they dont come straight drom the mag.
However this gun is very accurate with 2g bbs i can hit up to 40-50m away.
The scope is not real but it still works.
What do we expect for £35? Not the world.

Good: we love the SA 80 design. Looks really cool. Feels nice to shoulder despite the plastic. Workable saftey. Above all, it's powerful. I'm sure this is firing greater than 400fps. Pretty accurate once you suss how to use the sights. Definitely put a smile on my face. Would I recommend? Yes but don't expect the world for £35. I actually was going to give it 3 stars mainly because of the crappy mag but with the power I gave 4 stars. I wish someone would make an affordable SA80 electric. They are soooo cool.
Bad: cheap plastic and poorly finished (mine had scratches on the blue parts). Really crappy mag that's non-wind up. Fake scope (I knew that before I bought it. Torch is an eerie blue light not white. Flip up sight doesn't refer to the front. Refers to the peep sight on the carry handle. No instructions.
For a spring rifle this things powerful

Got this today and absolutely over the moon with it good accuracy and and amazingly powerful scope and torch not so good but it was only an extra £2.50
Pretty good as a base.

I bought this L85 specifically to modify into a bolt action sniper rifle (because Im mad) the original interiors hold up really well to an upgraded spring and pretty much any upgrade inner barrel will fit. Really easy to work on and operate. Now I have a 400 round sniper rifle dubbed the SV80 (sniper variant from the 1980s) great fun thanks guys
