Some of you may not know a lot about Falkor Defense, so allow me to give you a little back ground about them. FALKOR Defense is a world class firearm manufacturer, with a doctrine that emphasizes research and development that produces ingenuity and innovation. FALKOR Defense is located in Kalispell Montana, where its 50,000 square foot facility manufactures its products using the latest aerospace technology in CNC machining, anodizing, and assembly. Its products are 100% made in the U.S.A and are held to the highest manufacturing standards. As FALKOR Defense continues to evolve, its legacy continues to grow as one of the most innovative, accurate, and reliable firearm manufacturers in the world. The mission is to continually exceed the expectations of the consumer by delivering firearm technology that is relevant and value added without jeopardizing quality and reliability.
Now that we have some context, lets move on! These are the two latest offerings from EMG and theres a few things to talk about. Right off the bat you will see both guns are done up with a really nice grey finish and there are Falkor Defense markings every where. The Recce is the longer version here and the Blitz is the shorter one.
Other than one is long and one is short, there are other notable differences between the guns. For starters the rail designs are slightly different and their muzzle devises are different as well. The Blitz features a very well finished electric blue blast cap. This gun is already pretty good looking and this blue cap really does work well with it, it off sets the overall grey look with with a nice front highlight.
Both guns come with M-Lok rails. Which also feature “interesting” names. The longer one is called the “Tranny” and the shorter one is called the “Fatty”, there has to be a joke in here somewhere but I just may not be getting it.
These guns’ real counter parts were designed to be competition rifles and that does transfer over to the airsoft versions as well. You can see all the ambidextrous controls on the lower receiver and to highlight, the low profile magazine release works quite well with this gun. The flat faced trigger does have a good feel on it and its enlarged hook on the bottom catches your finger quite well. Further more, after you plug in the battery, there is also a noticeable reset which can rival that of a GBBR.
The charging handle for both guns are also enlarged and can be pulled back on both sides. Upon pulling back the charging handle it will reveal the hop up right here in the breach which you can adjust for more or less hop.
These guns feature quick change springs that you can access form the rear of the gun by simply removing the stock. Finally these guns feature adjustable minimalistic stocks and both use the small Tamiya type battery connectors which can be found, once again, in the buffer tube. As added accessories these guns come with 450rd hi cap magazines and QD sling adaptors.
The take away I would like to leave you with is this: for two good looking guns that are under US$400.00 you are getting a pretty good package. On one had you have a gun that can shoot long range thats fairly accurate and on the other you have a shorter SBR with a very flashy blast cap. Yes, they may just be “another M4” to some but drawing back to our recent 600 dollar gun video, we learned that the M4 AEGs are a great platform for you to build upon and there’s a lot of good things here ready for you to start that build.
