With its blade-like lines, the Gtek170R is a tool sharpened and ready to perform at any level.
The main focus has been achieving a completely hoseless version of
the Gtek, while still retaining simplicity of assembly and of course,
reliability. This has been achieved by placing the brand new inline
regulator directly adjacent to the new POPS assembly, in the base of the
frame, moving the battery into the foregrip, and mounting the solenoid
inside the frame, rather than mounting to the bottom of the body. Even
the new breech sensor system, that utilizes prismatic light pipes to
guide the infrared light through the breech, is attached to the frame.
This means that all critical components are now housed within the frame,
simplifying the design, and making maintenance and break down far
quicker and easier. Adding to the simplicity of the package, the 170R
also includes toolless access to the eye covers, detent, battery and of
course the drivetrain and bolt. These all go to make the 170R incredibly
simple to clean and maintain. A pleasure to live with both on and off
