We’ve been spending a lot of time with GBB platforms of late, so when a new one comes onto our radar we’re definitely all ears… especially when it’s an airsoft replica of the SIG MCX RATTLER SBR!

The RATTLER is all about rapid deployment, agility and precision, and the real deal features a 5.5″ PDW barrel, so the MCX platform has never been more compact!

Good to go wherever it’s deployed,the MCX RATTLER has a thin, foldable stock for easy concealment and stowage. This gun was designed by SIG from the ground up to be as discrete as possible while retaining all the capabilities of the MCX. With free-floating M-LOK handguards matched with a PDW upper and that short barrel, the MCX Rattler SBR is the ideal choice for fast-moving, lo-drag operators.

So, we were very pleased to get the nod from the guys at Dave’s Custom Airsoft that the APFG 004BK MCX RATTLER GBBR is now in stock!

They said that “This full metal Gas Blowback MCX Rattler from APFG (Which as far as we know is basically VFC under a different name) is one hell of a cool rifle. Based on the short nasty brother of the MCX Virtus this Rattler comes with a suppressor and stubby handguard making it perfect for CQB. This rifle has the 20mm Rail Mounted stock which is side folding, as always with GBBR controls are as per the real rifle and recoil is strong. This rifle has a quick adjust hop system and is compatible with VFC M4 GBBR Magazine.”

And the features look strong too:

Build Material: Metal/Alloy/Polymer

Magazine Capacity: 30 BBs ( VFC Compatible )

Overall Length: 400/740mm

Inner Barrel Length: 138mm

Weight: 2800g

System: Gas Blowback

Firing Mode: Semi Auto/Full Auto/Safe

Hop-Up: Adjustable

Muzzle Velocity : 310 fps ( +/- 10% ) with.20g BBs (export version will be adjusted according to local regulations)

As fans of the MCX the RATTLER looks incredible to us, and if we can get our hands on one we’ll be sure to test it… with limited numbers though we think that even we might have to be very lucky to get “hands on” with one of these!
