Tachyon: A Weapon Mounted Computer For Airsoft

Thursday, June 28th, 2018

Tachyon is a seriously cool project up for funding on Indiegogo. A creation of Martin Hrehor of Košice, Slovakia, Tachyon is a weapon-mounted computer designed for use with airsoft rifles. Taking cues from Sci-Fi weapons, such as the MA5 series rifles from Halo and the M41A Pulse Rifle from Aliens, the Tachyon is able to display a programmable, active ammunition count, which is represented both as a numeric and graphical counter, which tracks shots via an infrared sensor mounted to the barrel. The Tachyon also has an adjustable brightness setting, clock, and battery monitor. Additionally, Tachyon mounts onto a Picatinny rail assembly, and had its own top-mounted rail, for attaching an optic.

At the time of writing, the initial run of 24 units were already claimed, so only non-reward contributions can be made at this time. Still, if all goes well with the project, it’s rather likely we’ll see more of the Tachyon later on.

    Tokyo Mauri – Thor’s Hammer Albert 02 Airsoft Replica

    Tuesday, May 2nd, 2017

    Untitled

    Tokyo Mauri has been offering Biohazard/Resident Evil-licensed airsoft guns for quite some time now, and they’ll be expanding those offerings with the release of the Albert 02 replica from the upcoming ‘Resident Evil 7: Biohazard’ DLC, ‘Not A Hero’. The Albert 02 is a combat shotgun that will be wielded by series regular Chris Redfield (or is he?). It looks like the 3-way love child of a SCAR, USAS-12, and the forend of a Warsport LVOA.

    The Albert 02 is itself derived from Tokyo Mauri’s ‘Thor’s Hammer’, which is an original airsoft gun created in-house by their design team, and not directly modeled after any real world firearms.

    Look forward to seeing the Albert 02 airsoft replica when it releases this Summer, and the ‘Not A Hero’ DLC when it releases.

    SHOT Show 2017 – Umarex Legends

    Tuesday, January 17th, 2017

    Umarex’s ‘Legends’ consists of full-auto blowback action bb guns patterned after iconic weapons, or as Umarex’s marketing puts it, “Designs that changed history”. Two of the guns in this line caught my eye, the M712, and the MP, which is also new for 2017.

    M712

    IMG_4429

    The M712 is patterned after the M712 “Schnellfeuer” or “Fast Fire” C96 Mauser, which was capable of full-auto fire and sported a detachable magazine. Umarex’s bb version follows suit, featuring full metal construction, full-auto or semi-auto fire, and an 18-round detachable magazine, which also houses the CO2 cartridge needed to power the gun’s action.

    MP

    IMG_4430

    The MP is patterned after the iconic MP40, and like the M712 above, features full metal construction and select fire. The MP’s action is powered by two 12g CO2 capsules which are housed in the 60-round detachable magazine. The MP comes complete with a folding stock and adjustable rear sight with fixed front post.

    SIG SAUER Introduces the 1911 Spartan BB Pistol

    Monday, January 9th, 2017

    1911-spartan-bbgun_left

    Newington, NH (January 9, 2017) – SIG SAUER, Inc. is pleased to introduce the 1911 Spartan BB Pistol. Modeled after the 1911 Spartan centerfire pistol, this CO2-powered, semi-automatic 1911-style BB pistol features a unique bronze finish. The slide is engraved with the original Greek words ‘MOLON LABE’ which means ‘Come and Take Them’, and the grip is emblazoned with the Spartan helmet. This high-performance air pistol also features a full-metal slide and frame with realistic blowback action of the metal slide and a 16-round magazine which holds 4.5mm steel BBs. The 1911 Spartan BB Pistol also fits in current 1911 holster systems and has the same weight and controls of a traditional 1911 firearm, making it ideal for training.

    “Training is a must for all shooters, regardless of skill level, and this new SIG SAUER 1911 Spartan BB Pistol is an effective training tool for beginners and experts alike,” said Joseph Huston, vice president and general manager of the SIG SAUER Airgun Division. “Our airguns are an inexpensive alternative to live-fire training for those who want to practice but can’t make it to the range as often as they would like, and the fact that the 1911 Spartan BB Pistol fits in a regular 1911 holster allows shooters to practice drawing in addition to accuracy. Shooting enthusiasts are really embracing SIG SAUER airguns as an additional method of training, and these airguns are also an excellent way to teach beginners firearm safety and how to shoot for the very first time.”

    The 1911 Spartan BB Pistol has the same skeletonized trigger as its centerfire counterpart. There is also a cam lever CO2 loading port for easy and quick loading of the 12gr CO2 cartridges. The 1911 Spartan

    BB Pistol shoots up to 410 fps; however, velocity results may vary depending on temperature and altitude.

    Like the 1911 Max Michel BB Pistol, the 1911 Spartan BB Pistol gives newer shooters the ability to learn firearm safety and basic fundamentals in a controlled, comfortable, quiet, and safe environment. It removes the intimidation factor of the loud noise and recoil, leaving the newer shooter more confident and with a much better understanding of traditional firearms and their safe use.

    MSRP: $110.99

    “When it comes to shooting, consistent training is invaluable, whether you are a member of law enforcement, the military or are a responsible citizen carrying to protect your family,” said Max Michel, Jr., captain of Team SIG. “Despite this, many people don’t have the time, opportunity or finances to train as much as they should. The 1911 Max Michel BB Pistol gives you the flexibility to train anywhere, anytime with measurable results. Dry fire training is always recommended, but can be boring and sometimes misleading. This is a great way for those who typically shoot a 1911-style pistol to work on accuracy, speed and drawing from concealment.”

    The 1911 Max Michel BB Pistol fits in current 1911 holster systems and has the same weight and controls of a traditional 1911 firearm. It features a full-metal slide and frame with realistic blowback action of the metal slide. The 16-round magazine holds 4.5mm steel BBs and the trigger has the same styling and shape as the 1911 Max firearm. There is also a cam lever CO2 loading port for easy and quick loading of the 12gr CO2 cartridges. The .177 caliber 1911 Max Michel BB Pistol shoots up to 410 fps; however, velocity results may vary depending on temperature and altitude.

    The 1911 Max Michel BB Pistol also gives newer shooters the ability to learn firearm safety and basic fundamentals in a controlled, comfortable, quiet, and safe environment. It removes the intimidation factor of the loud bang and recoil, leaving the newer shooter more confident and with a much better understanding of traditional firearms and their safe use.

    “I’m a 10-year Army veteran and have been a pro shooter for nearly 20 years, and I enjoy shooting this BB pistol because it’s just incredibly fun,” said Michel. “Regardless of your shooting ability, practice with this BB pistol is a really enjoyable and affordable way to improve your skills. I love shooting with my kids and this provides a platform for me to teach them safely while building their confidence. In the next few years as they continue to progress into more traditional firearms, they will be much better prepared because of the training they are receiving with the 1911 Max Michel BB pistol.”

    MSRP: $110.99

    In the same vein of that Tacticool C96 Mauser from a couple years back, someone (based on the grip texture and desert colorway likely the same someone as the C96) has done a similar job on an airsoft Luger P08. I love this one especially because the mini red dot is situated on the cocking mechanism. I also appreciate the integrated standoff spikes built into the frame, in front of the barrel.
