G&G Armament, planned release, C7A1

http://www.airsoft2day.com/news/1192...ease-c7a1.html


Guay Guay Trading Co. Ltd. in Taiwan recently revealed the Colt Canada, formerly Diemaco, built C7A1 assault rifle as their next airsoft replica. The real C7, including its variants: the C7A1, C7A2 and C8, serves as the standard issue rifle for the Canadian Armed Forces. G&G Armament's model will sport a full metal upper and lower receiver externally along with an 8 millimeter ball bearing gearbox and 16,000 rpm hi-torque long axis motor internally.[1] Other notable details include a tri-rail front sight mount, a 450 round high capacity Thermold magazine, and an Elcan optical gunsight. Soon to be released by G&G Armament, the C7A1 will be available in black and OD green color; no official price nor release date has yet been announced.

I'm no expert but that green looks a little off.

Thanks for sharing. But another M16 variant in green and a different scope? No. Thank you.

The green on them is way to bright and it is missing the M4 stock. the A1 was never made in green.

Also im not sure why every company making a C7/C8 thinks we still use thermold mags. those things havent been used in over 10 years. And the screws on the Elcan are wrong, should be wing-nuts.

You would think that companies such as these who possibly have incredible access to resources and maybe even the actual rifle itself would avoid making such obvious mistakes eh?

It also seems to have HK Fire selector markings... which I'm quite sure the Diemaco's do not have.

Simple fix for the color - 10 minutes and a can of spray paint.
And prob $3 nuts that you can prob find at a hardware store.
Problem Solved, good night.

If you're looking for a good C7 wall hanger, stick with G&P. It's ok if upgraded to fix all it's issues. But it's still much better than what G&G can offer. And that colour is hideous. No where close to the right colour.

Not exactly wing nuts but a more rounded Diamond. I think what they are driving at is releasing a C7/C8 That will sell well in Canada as well as the global market for all things Canadian. As we here have noticed membership and questions from Russia & East block Great Britain, France, Italy, and The USA. The Thermo mag was a unique Canadian design. Isn't this the Rifle on COD? for The JTF2 guys?

I'll have a couple in my Shop soon If you dudes wanna get your mittys on it. Just don't make a mess please.

I'd like it if G&G offered their Triad rail as a separate accessory. Real items are rare and expensive.

Not just fire selector markings, trades are wrong too: unilingual, no model number.



versus



Since examples are commonly available (there's even an engraving template kicking around from the DIY C7/C8 projects) either G&G doesn't care to be accurate or cannot be (due to licensing or what have you).

I don't want to be dumping on G&G, since I do support the idea of CF replicas. It's just that they only have to go a little farther in certain details (as outlined in the community) and they will have a winner. Since there is no set release date, I'm hoping they collect some of this commentary and tweak the offering before release.

Also it would be nice to see a C8.

On Arnie's there is a confirm from G&G that the Triad will be available on it's own.

G&G Toptechs have excellent internals.
