Ares Octarms Pro Range General Info:
The Ares Octarms Pro are the next evolutionary step of Ares’ Amoeba range. With full metal construction, tight-bore barrels, excellent EFCS gearboxes and an easy change spring system they naturally lent themselves to be being a perfect base for customisation. I was immediately impressed by the quality of these rifles out of the box and after trialling a few different upgrades to find a perfect match at good value I was completely amazed at their performance once upgraded. I personally took out my demo model and used it to play so I could assess the real-world performance and I absolutely was not disappointed. Once upgraded with our nearly full internal overhaul the range, rate of fire, trigger response and compression consistency of these rifles is top notch.
The full upgrade list of brand new parts is as follows:
Aluminium Bearing Piston Head,
14 Steel Tooth Piston,
Dual O-Ring Aluminium Cylinder Head,
13:1 or 18:1 (for DMR’s) Gearset with new Neodymium Magnets for the Sector Gear,
Full Shimming and Gearbox Re-greasing,
Neodymium Ultra High Torque Motor,
And last but not least an S-Hop Conversion.
Each Rifle in the range has been chosen with the idea of fulfilling a common role on the airsoft field.
The 13” and 12” rifles are a nice medium between the 7” CQB length and the 15” DMR. Giving a nice balance of manoeuvrability and weight with a good length of rail for different shooting stances and styles.
It’s a good choice for players who often take up a general assault-style role like that of an infantryman. Being able to fight at long distances accurately and still retain usefulness at close distances for entering buildings, moving around fortifications and passing through cover.
