The AAP-01C is the compact version of the AAP-01 gas blowback airsoft pistol from Action Army Company. Renowned in the airsoft community for their upgrade parts, Action Army has expanded their product line into the gas blowback pistol market. Powered by green gas, the AAP-01C is capable of both semi-auto and full auto firing modes by flipping the fire selector on the underside of the bolt carrier. All of the controls such as the magazine catch, safety, and slide catch are either ambidextrous or reversible, making the pistol friendly for right-handed or left-handed users. Accessory rails are molded in to the top and bottom of the upper receiver assembly, and a 14mm CCW thread adapter is built into the compensator for the attachment of muzzle devices.
A completely new and original design externally, the AAP-01C still retains many internal cross-compatibility with current gas pistols. The hop-up and bucking are standard TM pattern, and the magazine is based on G-series pistol designs. In addition to its own 22-round magazine, the AAP-01C is also compatible with G-series magazines from KJW, WE, and VFC, or any other magazine with the same specifications.
