Lonex / Lancer Tactical MMC PDW AEG
Boys from the Tradesoft sent me some interesting new stuff to try out! CQB-AEGs mainly!
I have tested older models of Lonex M4 AEG before and they are really one of the best stock guns (technically) there is! This time I got my hands on MMC PDW model.
This gun goes by many names: In U.S its under Lancer Tactical brand, in Europe its BO Dynamics (or something like that) but its OEM by Lonex and I have here original OEM gun.
I wont write as long technical tests in these english versions (this will change) but I will let the pictures do the talking.
Gun has some nice features and really top notch internals! All the parts are sold separately as a tuneup parts so this gun is quite a bargain.
- QD Spring Change
- Polymer Flash Mag
- EBB Electronic BlowBack (can be upgraded to Recoil Shock)
- Freefloat Rail System
- Integrated Mock Silencer
- Ergonomic Pistol grip
- Sling attachment point for one point slings in end-plate
- Fake bolt can be locked back and released with bolt release
Gun itself has nylon fiber reinforced polymer receiver and rail system. Ergonomic pistol grip and crane style stock is also made from same sturdy material. All the small bits and pieces are made from high quality steel and my trusty test magnet attaches almost to all small metal parts.
Fake bolt can be loaded back and be released with bolt release. This makes dialing the hopup much easier.
Gun also has a EBB that's quite nice feature to have for those who wants some little realistic extra. Its really easy to disable if you want to! (Just remove two screws on top of the gearbox)
You can add some foam inside the tube to get more muffled sound. Inner barrel goes almost to the front of the can.
Polymer BUIS that can be flipped down.
As said: body is made of really high quality polymer. Body itself is quite light but internals and outer barrel gives this gun lots of weight.
QD-Spring system and recoil upgrade takes all that room inside the buffer tube. You have to use crane-stock or battery pouch to accommodate your battery.
In lonex version recoil shock has to be bought separately. Not sure about BO and Lancer versions.
- 8 mm. reinforced V2 gearbox (EBB Version)
- M120 Spring that gives out 1,44J with 0,20g bb and 1,7J with 0.30g (joule creep...)
- 8 mm. Steel ballbearings with enclosed casing
- 18:1 Steel Gears
- Steel Cutoff lever
- A5 Ferrite motor (A2 with recoil shock package)
- Red 14t piston
- POM Piston head (AoE version)
- POM Nozzle with o-ring
- Steel Cylinder
- Steel Spring guide with ball bearings
- Low-Res wiring to back with mini tamya connector
- etc good lonex stuff
Gun uses also nice rotary style hop up with Lonex 70 bucking. Stock barrel is brass and it should be 6.04 mm.
Modified V2 gearbox, quick change spring system can be seen quite clearly.
Nice 14t piston that has full metal teeth rack
Nicest stock gears that I have seen in any gun.
Nozzle has O-ring for better air seal. Cylinder is steel and bit overvolumed. Its meant for 363+ barrel. Compression is great!
My real Eotech goes nicely with this gun! ;)
Performance for this gun is awesome. I could get all the bbs to a oil barrel in 60 meters ( about 200 feet). Thats quite good performance with this short gun. Stock spring gave me about 1,44J with 0,20G and 1,7-1,8J with 0,30g bb, rise in ouput is because cylinder is overvolumed.
Gun shoots too hot for CQB with stock spring but its really easy to change.
MMC is not a light gun and pistol grip is quite large so you need big hands that its comfortable. But luckily its really easy to chance to grip that suits your hands better. Dont be alarmer, I liked it alot but I have large man-hands! ;)
Great performer, solid construction and nice recoil (especially with recoil shock).
Maybe not most beautiful gun on the market.
