Here is a new AEG brought to life by Kriss, the company that creates real steel firearms such as the popular Kriss Vector.
Another successful real steel company making its way to the Airsoft market, making this an increasingly popular trend among gun manufacturers.
The new prototype is based on the M4 platform but its clearly stretching its limits to reach the LMG status that many try to achieve by adding a box magazine .
The benefits in such solution are obvious, its a lightweight and familiar approach for those who are used to work with the M4 platform.
And of course Kritac had to work the internals so they would cope with the task:
Internally, the Trident LMG features a reinforced 8mm ball bearing gearbox with integrated MOSFET to regulate electronic signals and to protect the trigger contacts. The corners of the gearbox that surround the cylinder feature a smooth radius, as opposed to a 90° angle, to prevent fracture. Also, the gearbox shell features a small window on the left side where lubrication can be applied directly to the gears or piston, this window is also convenient for inspecting the angle of engagement with the gearbox fully assembled.Additional gearbox features include a modular spring guide system that will allow the spring to be changed without completely disassembling the gearbox. The KRYTAC piston is made of a durable, lightweight, polymer and features 4 metal teeth, with the 2nd to last tooth absent. The Cylinder head is padded with an enlarged rubber bumper to optimize the angle of engagement and to absorb energy form the impact of the piston assembly. The material for the gears have been especially formulated to be very strong, Rockwell test figures on the KRYTAC gears are much higher than industry norms. Turning all of the drive train components is the KRYTAC high torque motor, capable of 30,000 revolutions per minute unloaded.
This is one of a new line of products being launched by Kritac during the next few months, being that the Trident LMG will be launched during this month and will cost around 499usd.
