Centurion MilSim – ONE+ONE Veteran Program

Friday, August 12th, 2016

Centurion MilSim Event Company is exactly what it’s name would imply, a MilSim event company, and it’s Veteran owned and operated. They have what they call their ‘ONE+ One’ program, which allows Veterans who participate in their events to bring a fellow Veteran along to one of the events at no additional cost (provided this the fellow Veteran’s first event within the company). All that’s required for the guest is to bring their own gear, and they’re in, no strings attached.

The full details can be found at the link below:

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.
