EMG / Sharps Bros “Overthrow” Licensed Full Metal Advanced M4 Airsoft AEG Training Rifle

Monday, December 31st, 2018

EMG International has partnered with Sharps Bros to produce a series of full metal AEG training rifles based on the ‘Overthrow’ AR-15 lower receiver design by Sharps Bros. The receiver set is CNC billet-style metal with an anodized finish and the lower receiver features an integrated beveled magazine flare magwell, styled after a hoplite helmet, with EMG & Sharps Bros licensing and engraved bullet pictogram selector markings. Furniture includes an aluminum M-LOK freefloat handguard and slim AR grip that houses the ARES high torque slim motor. One of the coolest features of this particular AEG is the inclusion of the ARES Electric Firing Control System – capable of safe/semi/3-round burst/full auto fire, the gearbox is programmable using a separate EFCS programming unit to change the available firing modes on the rifle.

The ‘Overthrow’ AEG is being offered in Black and FDE in three length variants: SBR, RECCE, and PDW.

An Update On The Sharps Bros. ‘The Jack’ AR-15 Lower Receiver

The Jack

Back in February, I wrote about a stylized AR-15 lower receiver shaped like a skull, produced by custom lower receiver shop Sharps Bros. The original article featured a 3D printed model developed for check fit purposes, however by this point they’ve graduated to full-on aluminum models. Currently, Sharps Bros. is awaiting an ATF variance to clear before they can start mass production. According to the Sharps Bros. Facebook page, we should expect more information on pricing and availability starting April 1st.
