The Pulse R76 is one of a kind. It resembles in many ways an AK-74u, and shoots like one, too. From it’s big 350 round magazine, to it’s powerful 8.4v battery, to its dead-on accuracy, this is truly a kick @$$ AEG!
Where the sights are located, you have to look through the tri-weaver rails directly above the trigger to see them, which is a little awkward, but it really is amazingly accurate for a machine gun. Like I said, there’s a square hole that runs inside the set of tri-weaver rails, that you have to look through to see the sights. It’s not a big deal at all, it’s just different to what most people are used to. The tri-weaver rails are in a weird place though. Mounting a scope would be inaccurate because the scope would be to high up, and it’s located so far back that it’s ineffective to mount a laser or flashlight. So, the tri-weaver rails are really only for aiming and looks. The only other weaver rail is under the front of the gun, under the sights. This rail, however, can be useful for lasers and flashlights. The only problem with this weaver rail is that it’s located right where you put your weak hand to hold it, so any accessory you put there would be interfering with your grip.
You can also see (in the picture above) the AK-47 like safety. It’s almost three inches long and you push it up or down to choose between safety, semi-automatic, and fully-automatic. Most airsoft rifles have more of a M16 style safety, so it might feel a little bit awkward at first, but you get used to it.
The Pulse R76 airsoft rifle features semi and fully automatic settings. Fully-automatic means that one or more BB’s can be fired with one pull of the trigger. Semi-automatic means that one shot will be fired with a pull of the trigger. This makes it great for airsoft fights. Semi-automatic is more accurate and can be used for long range shots, and the fully-automatic feature isn’t as precise, but can shoot around 700-800 rounds per minuet with a fully charged battery.
The Pulse R76 also fires BB’s at a very good speed for a machine gun: 375 FPS. I recommend using .20 gram BB’s. .12 gram are very inaccurate and fly everywhere, and anything over .20 slows down the FPS and might cause jams.
The stock is also fold-able. You just push a button near the stock, and it will go limp and allow you to fold it up under the gun, near the front weaver rail and then lock into place again.
The battery is 8.4 volts and 1150 mAh. There’s not a whole lot of room, if you wanted to get a upgraded battery, but, personally, I don’t think it’s a good idea to upgrade it, it’s already firing 800 rounds per minuet, and it would be a lot of stress on the gun to go much more.
All-in-all, the Pulse R76 airsoft gun is a economically priced gun at only $90-$120 (depending on where you get it), and very reliable in every way. In some ways it’s a fully-automatic sniper rifle! It’s also very versatile, with it’s folding stock and weaver rails free to customize. So, in a wrap, very good, somewhat cheap for what it’s worth, accurate, reliable, AEG with a great ROF (Rate of Fire), and is highly respectable on the battle field or even for just some good old fashion target shooting.
