Classic Army

Classic Army (Yick Fung International) is a manufacturer of airsoft replicas based in Hong Kong. It produces automatic electric guns or AEGs, and a small number of GBB (Gas Blowback) pistols. Designed to resemble real firearms, these replicas fire 6mm plastic BBs at safe velocities. Within the airsoft community, Classic Army is often abbreviated as simply "CA."

Classic Army AEG's are characterized by their many metal parts and realism, in that most parts that are metal on the real-steel counterpart are also metal on the replica (although they are usually not cross-compatible). These metal components usually include the frame and body, as well as the firing mechanism (called a "gearbox"). CA replicas also feature pre-upgraded internals such as metal bushings and polycarbonate pistons.

As with most AEGs, Classic Army replicas use rechargeable batteries (either NiMH, NiCd)or more recently LiPo. In an un-modified condition they can be expected to fire 0.2 g BBs at approximately 280–340 feet per second (FPS).

Classic Army has also released a new series, "Sportline", which forgo the metal bodies of CA's more mainstream AEG's, now known as the "Proline" series. These guns come with a plastic body, and the other standard equipment included with MPEGs. This new line is designed to compete with the new MPEG guns coming from Chinese manufacturers, such as Jing Gong, Dboys, CYMA, Kart, and A&K. The Sportline Series includes CA 416 series (based on Heckler & Koch HK416), CA 90 series (based on P90), AUG (based on Steyr AUG), M15 Series (based on M16 and M4 carbine), MP5 series (based on Heckler & Koch MP5) and SA M7 series (based on Ak-47). Even more recently, Classic Army has released metal-bodied sportline models. They have similar bodies to the "proline" models, however the trademarks are of a lesser quality. Many people in the airsoft community say that the Chinese made clones are a better value than many sportline models.
