We received our shipment from Krytac and wasted no time tearing one down to take some pictures!
Upclose shot of the Krytac Cthulu..I mean squid logo.
Here’s a shot of the uninstalled Krytac Defiance TR110 Keymod rail system. While an included rail panel would be nice, the benefit to the keymod system is the direct attachment features. Directly attaching keymod components slims down the profile and weight of the gun.
The two bolts that pass through these holes are the only thing holding the rail to the receiver. Don’t worry, though. It’s extremely solid and there is absolutely no wobble thanks to a gas tube sleeve (not pictured).
The hop up wheel is numbered with an indexing mark on the body for quicker hop adjustment.
The 280mm barrel has a V-style nub installed.
You can tell this was developed by people that work on airsoft guns.. The threading for the buffer tube screw is shaped like a funnel. This helps guide the buffer tube screw into place.
The Krytac comes with a super torquey motor. You definitely shouldn’t have any problem turning over beefier-than-stock springs with it.
It’s the little things that count.. Beefier heat shrink on the motor connectors means less broken motor connectors.
Mechbox removed from body. The spring has been decompressed to get ready for splitting the gear box. The fake bolt doesn’t have to be removed to disassemble the shell, only put to the forward position.
Serial killer.. Each gun is serialized. This will help with warranty/service tracking as well as lost and stolen gun recovery.
Just a quick “mod” to make assembly/reinstall easier..put some index marks on the selector switch gears to show where they are supposed to line up.
Here’s a shot of the mosfet. A mosfet is going to greatly increase the life of your trigger contacts. These are specifically made for the Krytac mechbox shell. We’re hoping for burst fire controllers that replace the stock mosfet to be developed soon.
Here’s the gun disassembled. Notice the green mosfet on the left of the gearbox. It’s hard to see but on the bottom of the mechbox where the wires typically cross under the motor axle and pinion, there is a sleeve to keep them safe.
Here’s a different angle for the gearbox. The gears ride in 8mm ball bearing bushings. The spur or step gear is of the self shimming variety.
On this gun, in particular, we went ahead and installed an SHS 130 spring, a VFC Psalms 6.03mm tight bore, a Madbull Umbrella Corp 23 motor grip, Magpul MVG vertical grip, an Aimpoint replica, an Element flash hider, and a Magpul left handed scout mount for a flashlight.
We were very satisfied with the
Krytac Trident CRB. It’s a solid feeling gun. The externals are top notch as well as the internals. There are, however, a couple of things we will change on our personal gun. First off, we will be installing a beefier spring to increase the FPS from 330 with a .25 up to closer to 400 with a .25. Second, we will be adding a tight bore barrel to aid in the FPS gains as well as helping out with the accuracy. Third, and not completely necessary, an o-ring air nozzle might be added to help with compression.
Overall, you’ll be getting an awesome quality gun for $325. We are stoked to run this one hard at the field and see exactly where its limits lie.
