FC-109 Carbine Replica
A series of American rifle replicas by ForceCore Industries has hit in numbers the popular on airsoft market “M type replicas under 1000 PLN” section and can courageously compete with other manufacturers. Characteristic features of ForceCore replicas are the solid craftsmanship of the exterior, almost 100% “full metal” construction, efficient and stable stock performance as well as a wide array of interesting and original models.
The quality of craftsmanship allows us to compare ForceCore products without any second thoughts with pricier products from well-known brands. Specific elements of the replica, such as both parts of the body and handguard were fitted together exceptionally well and it is difficult to pinpoint any loose spots. In addition, the body features effective, laser engraved manufacturer markings with a characteristic “frog” of Navy Seal Team.
Parts made from a durable alloy of zinc and aluminum include, among others, the entire body with RIS rails, handguard, outer barrel, stock pipe, flash hider and all manner of manipulators. The magazine case, shell ejection flap, stock and bolt replica plate were made from steel. Remaining elements such as pistol grip and AN/PEQ case – like in the original – were made from a polymer.
The top of the body has a long, 22mm, RIS mounting rail, which allows for attachment of additional accessories such as optical sights. It also features a set of flip-up iron sights. The outer barrel has a 14mm, left-hand thread finish with a massive, metal silencer mounted on it. The base of buffer tube has two QD tactical sling swivels.
The replica has a handguard with a set of RIS, 22mm rails. It also has a special shape pistol grip, slightly thicker than standard grips used in M type replicas. A dedicated battery (included in the set) ideally fits inside the AN/PEQ case, which is also a part of the set. FC-109 has a simple, telescopic, rod stock made from steel.
The heart of the replica is a gearbox V.2, which includes, among others, 8mm ball bearings, a set of steel gears and a metal spring slide. What is more, a tight, metal nozzle and a dedicated Hop-Up chamber was used. The system has a uniquely well fitted parts and a very good tightness at stock.
Ultra-compact size and moderate muzzle velocity make FC-109 a perfect and deadly tool for CQB airsoft skirmishes (although not only!).

It is the spped of bb, while its leaving the innerbarrel of replica. This speed is measured in FPS (Feet Per Second).

1 J = 99 m/s
1 J = 326,7 FPS
|Propulsion / Powered by:|
Indications v2, v3, v6 does not mean the level of advance, but only shape of gearbox skeleton which was used and selected by the manufacturer depending on the capabilities of the body of the replica. For example, a models of the M4/M16 family, MP5, have a v2 gearbox, while the AK family have gearbox v3.

|Diameter of bearings in GB [mm]:|
The length of the replca is measured between the two most distant points of each other. Different models have several of these values, because of its design allows to increase or decrease it length (eg. folding stock or extended flash hider).
|Inner barrel length [mm]:|
This is a value that includes the weight of the replica, magazine and other accessories that are include in set without a battery, charger, cleaning rod, etc., etc.
|Battery Capacity [mAh]:|
Battery capacity determines the time, which it accumulated enough energy to work gearbox. The greater capacity, then replica will shoot longer.
|Magazine capacity [pcs]:|
Hop-Up system is used for overclocking bb during the shot (putting it in rotation), through which, it extends its flight path. Acting laws of physics make that bb lift up, while the gravitational force take it down. Appropriate adjustment of Hop-Up, will compensate for these two factors, which result in long and straight flight for longer distance and be greater focus shot (to improve accuracy).
Blow back is a simulation system of the cocking lever - it imitates the work of it as the equivalent sharp. This system raises the realism and adds a lot more experience during shooting.

rechargeable battery is characterized by high efficiency
current-carrying capacity, but there are disruptive effect on memory.
Should be unloaded and loaded in the full cycle, ie, it is recommended
to fully discharge, and after unloading must charge the battery
immediately without leaving it for a long time in a discharged state.
