ARES has continued with their innovation of AEGs with their newest generation of gel blaster design. The Ares Aqua M4 features custom furniture and receiver styling from top to bottom. Starting at the rear, the crane style stock allows you to install a variety of batteries namely the butterfly crane stock style battery. Moving onward you will find ARES's unique pistol grip that features a unique comfortable profile along with a textured Amoeba  grip that has a vented base plate to reduce motor overheat. The upper and lower receiver of the ARES AQUA M4 also features a unique design by adding curvature and further detail, giving it a more futuristic and high end look than the standard M4 receiver.

An enlarged magazine catch and improved straight trigger rounds out the lower receiver to not only increase ergonomics but aesthetics as well. The GAR-003E AEG employs a new handguard design to adapt modern shooting methods as well as light weight modular rail system which allows a wide array of optional accessories such as MLOK Rails, lights, and lasers.

The Improved 3rd generation Electronic Firing Control System (EFCS) can withstand around 30A firing current and provide better piston cycle position which ensures more steady firing speed and prolongs spring longevity.

Internally, the ARES AQUA Gel Blasters come straight from the box with high quality internals as well as the gearbox being compatible with the aftermarket ARES fire control unit (not included but will be available soon) for programmable burst fire as well. The AMOEBA uses ARES's Electric Fire Control System so you can control your ARES Aqua Blaster to fire in burst, semi ,and of course full auto. Inside, a MOSFET has been installed so each and every single shot is even and consistent with one full rotation of the gears. Internally the AEG also features the high end ARES 18:1 metal gears and high strength polymer piston parts which are sure to maximize performance and durability. The textured Amoeba grip houses a high-torque motor that performs beautifully with nearly any style of build, which comes in handy due to the quick-change system. 

Do not alter any part of your toy gel blaster as this will void the warranty. Alterations refer to pulling any of the blaster apart or opening it up, changing springs, upgrading the barrel to alloy, upgrading the battery from 7.4v to an 11.v battery or painting the gel blaster.

        The Question gets Asked a lot. Are gel blasters legal in Victoria. The answer is not a simple yes or no. You can own and possess a gel blaster in Victoria with no issues if you have a collectors permit. These are usually obtained by joining a re-enactment club or approved participating clubs that deal with Replica weapons. 
        There have also been multiple cases in Victoria where the Magistrate has handed down a decision that a gel blaster is not a firearm or prohibited weapon.
        Our advice is to go through the process, join a club and get your permit. That way you can blast away without the worry of breaking the laws.

        You should always talk to your local law enforcement branch and let them know your plans. There would most likely be restrictions on activities regarding gel blasters in Victoria.

        This article is not legal advice and is not intended as such.

        We strongly urge all customers to make sure they are following the rules by contacting local law enforcement or seeking legal advice before purchasing. 

        In QLD Gel blasters are considered replica firearms and QLD residents have light regulations regarding gel blasters.

        It is however an offence to go in public in QLD with a Gel Blaster as this might cause Alarm. We would assume the same would apply in all states of Australia.

        Please do yourself a favour, do your due diligence before purchasing and make sure all laws are followed and please be safe.
