St Delta M – Plastic Never Looked so Good!Mark Watts
Bulldog ST Delta-M – plastic never looked so good! Entry-level airsoft guns have come a long way in recent years. Driven by the increasing popularity of our beloved hobby, the market is now awash with what are known as ‘sports line’ products — driven by the necessity for manufacturers to produce affordable entries into their repertoire. These products are produced to entice new players onto the skirmish field, with an onus placed on ensuring them that their entry-level rifle will not let them down.
The brilliant Bulldog ST Delta M is one rifle that fits within the aforementioned category. Bulldog products are created under license by Star Rainbow Company, a prestigious manufacturer out of Taiwan. After conversations with Bulldog, they informed us that the Bulldog ST Delta is an outstanding pro-level AEG that has a range of features not usually found in a product of this price point. These features include a high-quality motor, metal bushings, an adjustable hop, and a high-end steel gear set. Externally, the ST Delta M makes use of a nylon body to reduce weight, as well as a custom moulded grip. Attached to this is an aluminium RIS rail, perfect for mounting a range of accessories. Towards the rear of the rifle sits an adjustable tactical stock, allowing you to adjust it for your own body size.
However, how many times have you bought something that looks good at a glance but get it home for it to perform horribly? Probably more times than you’d like to admit. Thankfully, when taking a look under the hood of the ST Delta M, it matches up to the exterior; in fact, it is a lot of rifle for the money. First off, you get a full metal quick-change Generation 4 gearbox; the ‘quick-change’ refers to the ability to change the spring in a hurry. Then, nestling inside the gearbox, you’ll find a set of full steel gears along with 8mm Full CNC Bushing, a full steel toothed piston and an Aluminium cylinder head. If that’s not enough to impress, you also get a double chip MOS-FET, a high torque motor and an adjustable hop-up system.
After a period of testing, you’ll be pleased to know that the ST Delta M is more than worth its price point. In fact, we’d say it’s up there with some of the best products we’ve looked at around its price. That said, we won’t paint the ST Delta M as being the best thing since sliced bread, though. It does have some trigger response delay, and the rate of fire is by no means anything to write home about, but these are relatively simple fixes that will not set you back an arm and a leg.
In closing, the Bulldog ST Delta M is a brilliant entry-level product that will provide you hours of fun while skirmishing. Furthermore, with a few upgrades, it performs admirably.
