More Details On The LCS SK-19 Full Auto Air Rifle
Following our story about this full auto air rifle at the 2019 Rocky Mountain Airgun Challenge, the manufacturer – LCS Air Arms – has sent HAM a set of photographs about this interesting new design. We’re publishing some of them here exclusively for the first time!
Of course, the standout feature of this hammerless semi-auto and full auto air rifle is the high rate of fire! LCS Air Arms says that this air rifle can empty the 19-shot magazine in under 3 seconds. That’s a fire rate of around 6 shots per second in full auto mode.
Available in .22 cal and .25 caliber, the LCS SK-19 is claimed by the manufacturer to chamber the longest pellets and slugs without problems.
The barrels are supplied by Lothar Walther. They are covered with a carbon fiber style shroud and silencer for low muzzle report.
The regulator is adjustable using a small knob. This is located just above the rear of the 480cc carbon fiber HPA tank. Filling is by an industry-standard 1/8 Inch NPT quick disconnect.
There are two pressure gauges. One indicates the main tank pressure. The other shows the pressure of the regulated air.
In addition to adjusting the regulator, the power level can be altered using the wheel on the underside at the rear of the action.
As the LCS SK-19 utilizes a fixed magazine, safe gun handling is a priority! Of course – as with any gun – the emphasis must be on the shooter to be safe. However, the manufacturer has provided this full auto air rifle with no less than two safeties. One doubles as the fire selector control, to switch between full auto and semi-auto mode.
Additionally, the design gives considerable access to the fixed magazine. After shooting, this mag can be rotated manually to check that it is completely empty and confirm clear.
The LCS Air Arms SK-19 full auto air rifle is being sold by Airguns of Arizona. They report that Muzzle Energy is up to 60 Ft/Lbs in .25 caliber. So this is also a powerful airgun!
In common with the tactical design of the gun, there are two Picatinny rails. The top one is for scope mounting, the lower for adding a bipod to the SK-19.
The bullpup design means that the SK-19 is fairly compact and not too heavy. Overall length is 35 Inches and weight 7.75 Lbs.
Finally, many potential customers will be pleased to hear that the SK-19 is assembled in the USA…
