Introduction

With the finalisation of HAO’s L119A2 Full Kit for Systema PTW just around the corner, I thought I’d take stock of all the parts I’ve accumulated so far for my build.

There have been some changes along the way, as more reference material has become available and knowledge and expertise in the L119A2 clone community has expanded.

Earlier instalments in this series can be viewed here:

The Current State of Play

One of the many reasons I standardise on the Systema PTW is because of its high level of drop-in compatibility with RS parts – as will be clear from the list below. The only RS element which requires modification is the Colt Canada buffer tube. The modification will be carried out during the build, by Tackleberry.

Some parts were particularly difficult to source. Big thanks to those who helped me out on the long journey of acquiring everything I set out to source.

Key:

Note on alternate parts: I will either make final decisions as to their inclusion, or they will be utilised for different L119A2 setups – or as my ergonomic preferences change.

1. HAO Beta Release L119A2 Monolithic IUR for PTW

Currently the only monolithic L119A2 upper which exists for the airsoft market. This will soon be superseded by the production version, at which time the lower will also be available. As soon as I have the latter, I can send the amassed parts to Tackleberry to be built into a PTW.
