During this year's IWA 2018 fair we visited and photographed the booth of Silverback company. We were also shown a few new products which look very promising.
The display at the booth would not be complete without carious versions of the SRS sniper rifle.
One of the new products was a working prototype of the HTI (Hard Target Interdiction). Its metal parts were made using CNC machining, the plastic parts were made on a 3D printer. Inside the rifle is a dedicated lengthened spring, an enlarged piston and a cylinder with a volume of 71 cm3 (for comparison the VSR10 has cylinder with a volume of 35 cm3, and the SRS 41 cm3). The design includes many solutions known from the SRS, including the inner barrel and hop-up bucking in the AEG standard. A Sportline, lighter version of the barrel will also be available for this rifle. The price of the HTI will be about 800 USD.
Another product was a silencer dedicated for the MK23 TM replica. The foam inserts have different diameters of the hole, which simulated how a real silencer works. This accessory is mounted on a 16 mm thread. The price of the silencer is 29 USD.
Another product shown was a prototype of the MDR (Micro Dynamic Rifle). It is a select fire bullpup rifle, which has a new prototype reinforced gearbox inside, with an enlarged cylinder volume. The cylinder is easily replaced. The piston used is a standard AEG one but its head is not. The frame has 10 mm bearings. Inside it is also an electronically controlled trigger which is programmed using an external device. The whole set is powered by a long type motor. Meany features used in the in the SRS are also present, such as quick external and internal barrel disassembly and the same type of hop-up chamber. Two length and caliber versions of the rifle will be available. The short version will include an adapter witch will allow for using magazines typical for the 5,56 mm caliber as the standard magazines used for the replica will be ones typical of the 7,62 mm caliber. This model will be available at the beginning of 2019, and its price will be around 500 USD.
