The PTS CAR-15 N23 PDW is the first model AEG rifle for our new PTS “Real-Spec” Legacy Airsoft Series. The original N23 was conceived and built by Dave Merrill, a well-known firearms expert and writer, who was inspired by an image of a truncated cutaway schematic of the AR15 that was filed in Colt’s original patent.
The N23 combines a very retro-vintage appearance with the latest in airsoft technology. The retro appearance starts with the vintage style “Model 607/VN” style receiver with a fixed carry handle and no forward assist. Complementing it is a uniquely shortened CAR-15 style “narrow” handguards and a custom shortened XM177 style buttstock on a custom shortened buffer tube. The end result is an ultra-compact AEG that looks vintage and “authentic” but has an almost toy-like quality due to its exaggeratedly shrunken proportions.
Internally, the i5 gearbox features a quick change spring for power adjustment, bearing bushings for higher efficiency and lower power consumption, and an electronic trigger and MOSFET for faster trigger responses and electrical wiring protection.
