[ENG]Preview: ICS BLE-XPD
Aktualisiert: 2. März 2019
ICS Airsoft has just released a new video and some more information about the ICS BLE-XPD. If anyone hasn't heard of it yet - it's a brand new very compact GBB pistol from ICS.
Check out the video
What to expect?
It will be the latest addition to the BLE family and stands out because of its very compact design. The frame is made of Nylon-reinforced Polymer and the slide from Aluminium. It will be available in black, tan and two-tone.
The XPD will provide some great features like luminous sights and a realistic firing pin (loading indicator). The standard mag has a capacity of 17 BBs and there will be also an extended mag with a capacity of 24 rounds, which could be bought separately.
The barrel will be pretty short, but it could be extended by using the included 14mm CCW adapter and a dummy suppressor or by mounting it directly to the 11mm threaded outer barrel.
It will be compatible with XDM holsters.
Here is a picture of the little beast from the ICS website:
