Giaco Whatever – 4000 PSI BB Gun VS Coca Cola Experiment

Monday, July 3rd, 2017

YouTube channel Giaco Whatever took a homemade, multi-barrel BB gun featured in a previous video, and upped the PSI from 130 to 4000, in addition to loading the gun with metal BBs. The end result is something that is understandably quite destructive.

Don’t try this at home, seriously.

AW Custom – Salient Arms International DS 2011 Airsoft Training Weapons

Wednesday, May 24th, 2017

There are a plethora of 2011 style competition pistols on the market. Many of them are fine competition guns, but they lack the rugged durability and dependability of a solid, reliable duty or personal defense weapon.

Seeing this gap in the market, and already well known for making high performance, rugged weapon systems, Salient Arms International set to work producing a double stack pistol that could clean up at the competition range and defend your home or protect your life in the field. The end result of years of research was the Salient Arms DS 2011 pistol. Precision machined with a form follows function attitude the SAI DS was manufactured for no other purpose in mind then to fill the needs of the hardcore shooting enthusiast.

Equipped with aggressive front and rear slide serrations, milled lightening cuts on both side of the slide and aggressive competition style sights the SAI DS clearly is a pistol designed for shooters by shooters. As with all of their products, Salient Arms International rewrote the rules of 2011 style pistols when they manufactured the DS, forging a new trail and leaving old conventions behind, the end result is a pistol that functions in the harshest conditions, under the heaviest of stresses and provides service you can stake your life on.

    Wednesday, May 10th, 2017

    TangoDown® worldwide release
    Licensed by TangoDown, U.S.A., manufactured by Evolution Airsoft

    The TangoDown Enhanced Combat Rifle (ECR) is available as a Training Tool for MIL/LE and for the Milsim players.

    Evolution Airsoft, a leading manufacturer in the Airsoft Industry proudly annouces the worldwide release of the brand new line of air soft guns and accessories licensed by TangoDown Inc., U.S.A.

    As anticipated at the firearms international exhibition IWA2017, the newTangoDown air soft guns are equipped with an aluminum metal body with a peculiar surface treatment to increase its resistance to scratches: the aluminum surface was first hard anodized and then finished matte black to eliminate the typical shine of anodized metal. This is something never seen before on an air soft gun.

    As everybody expects from an air soft gun made by Evolution Airsoft the bolt catch and the dust cover are fully functional, the outer barrel is one piece cnc machined and anodize finished, the precision inner barrel is 6.03mmdiameter.
    The highest performances are grant by a metal hop up chamber loaded withsealing o-rings.

    The TangoDown guns are equipped with a new reinforced gearbox with fully removable spring guide that allows to change the spring without removing the gearbox from the body and with a built in MOSFET, which means a faster trigger response and no more carbonized trigger switch.

    The TangoDown guns belong to the Evolution Airsoft’s Hard Core Series, which means the best of the best and come with loads of TangoDown licensed accessories straight out of the box. All accessories are also sold as separate items and are compatible with any air soft gun on the market.

    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

    SIG SAUER Introduces the 1911 Max Michel BB Pistol

    Wednesday, November 16th, 2016

    1911_max_bb_gun_left

    Newington, NH (November 16, 2016) – SIG SAUER, Inc. is pleased to introduce the 1911 Max Michel BB Pistol. Modeled after the 1911 Max centerfire pistol designed by World Speed Shooting Champion and Team SIG Captain, Max Michel, Jr., this CO2-powered, semi-automatic 1911-style BB pistol is a fun and useful training tool for shooters of all skill levels – from beginners to experts.

    “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

    Hyperdouraku – The Tacticool Luger

    Monday, September 5th, 2016

    1

    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.

    Tokyo Mauri – AA-12 Automatic Electric Airsoft Shotgun

    Wednesday, August 10th, 2016

    IMG_9055

    The AA-12 is a fully-automatic combat shotgun that, unfortunately, never really caught on with any conventional forces. However, as is the case with a lot of cool and rare firearms, there’s an airsoft version of the AA-12 readily available, and well-known airsoft manufacturer Tokyo Mauri produced it. The AA-12 features 3 cylinders and 3 barrels, with 10 rounds per second per barrel, for a total firepower of 30 rounds per second. It comes with a 90 round magazine, which it’ll chew through in seconds, but thankfully there’s also a 3000-round drum for sustained fire.

    Project Tank On GoFundMe

    Saturday, March 5th, 2016

    Project Tank is a campaign being held for the benefit of Simon Jameson, an airsoft player living in Ireland. Simon suffers from Duchenne Muscular Dystropy, and although this leaves him wheelchair bound, he has spent almost a decade playing airsoft. Simon love for the game is so great, he has even been granted the opportunity as the first disable person to participate in a MilSim game in a British Army MOD fibua city called Copehill Down; three times, in fact. The Project Tank campaign is an effort to seek the funding necessary for Simon to purchase a HexHog, an all-terrain wheelchair which will greatly aid in his overall mobility when playing airsoft and MilSim.

    SHOT Show 2016 – PTS – Mega Arms MKM .308

    Tuesday, January 26th, 2016

    DSC07098

    My friends over at the PTS booth had a lot of great stuff to show me, some of it already on the market, some of it new for 2016, but there was one product that caught my attention above all the others: the PTS Mega Arms MKM .308. Built around the Mega Arms MKM platform, the MKM .308 is based on a real steel .308/AR-10 rifle, and it shows. It’s not only a hefty beast of a gas blowback rifle, but the bolt itself is a monster; you can feel it slam forward with quite a bit of force for an airsoft rifle. Additionally, the MKM .308 will be capable of semi-auto and 3-round burst fire.

    DSC07101

    The magazine that comes with the MKM .308, the EPM LR, is a proprietary mag built to PTS’ own specifications just for this gun, and quite frankly, it’s heavy enough to cause extreme bodily harm if used as a blunt instrument.

    The MKM .308 will be available later this year from PTS.
