Make sure you also get a tank, line and regulator to complete your HPA setup!
If you are an AK user or have a v3 gearbox - check out the v3 version of the F2.

6. Our Favorite Summer Products:
There is a lot of cool stuff that the Amped Airsoft crew has found this Summer! Here are a couple of fun extra picks for items that we love to use during this season!
Arguably our favorite addition to the Amped Airsoft product selection this Summer - the Pit Viper Sunglasses! These glasses are not only awesome looking - but they are also ANSI Z87+ rated, which means you can use these as eye protection in airsoft (check with your local field rules, you may need a gasket to make them truly “full seal'')! Pit Vipers are making a splash at Amped this Summer!
The Condor Multiwrap is a great piece of headgear to keep the sweat and sun off of your face and head! You can pair it with the new Matrix Wire Mouth Under the Mask Teeth Protectorfor a low profile lower face protection option! These wraps come in Black, Coyote, Olive Drab, Multicam and Multicam Black!
