Most optics are priced in relation to their features and how reliable they are advertised to be with different calibres and usage. A good compact economically priced optic would be around £150~ where as a high quality brand such as Aimpoint would price their variation at just over £500. The Firefield Impulse 1x22 Compact Red Dot Sight is priced at just under £80 with features that are similar to but do not supersede other more expensive brands.
The Magload NEXUS 12 is a twelve shell caddie which holds six pairs of shotgun shells in a dual/quad load configuration which allows for quick loading into the feeding ramp of a shotgun. Although designed specifically for practical shotgun sports, the caddie has seen use in other sports including multi gun where other firearms are used in conjunction.
There are many fundamental elements to differentiating between a good rifle and a bad rifle. One of these elements relate to the ergonomics and functions of the rifle’s furniture. This review focuses on the one of many collapsible stocks which have been specifically designed to provide ergonomics, recoil dampening (not for Airsoft) and battery compartment (not for… well, it could be).
Newbold Self Sealing Reactive Polymer Targets are made of a hi-tech polymer which replaces the use of the more common steel alternatives. Branded as ElastiMAX, the polymer material is tough, flexible and safer than using metal targets. Due to the properties of the targets, the bullets don’t ricochet or splatter as they pass through the target. Normally this would lead to bullet holes and a destroyed target, however the polymer is self healing as it shrink around the hole to the size of a pin prick.
There are many .22 calibre rifles available on the market where many are used as economical substitutes to .223 variants, varmint hunting, and competition use as mini rifles. Whatever the purpose, a .22 calibre rifle comes in many varieties from many manufacturers. Tippmann Arms has been manufacturing .22 calibre rifles to suit both the economical enthusiast and the target shooter.
GBLS is a South Korean manufacturer who is noticeably new to the industry of Airsoft as a company and has decided to innovate past the norms of what is expected in the technological norms of today’s Airsoft market. The Dynamic Action System, otherwise known as the DAS, is a new mechanical system which simulates the reciprocation of a moving bolt carrier group without the use of gas propulsion. This system works with a split gearbox of one main gear that reciprocates the bolt carrier backwards, not only creating a recoiled effect but also compressing the spring in the bolt and chambering a new bb.
Secutor have been very busy trying to work on providing unique airsoft products without copying the designs of other products on the market. This is not a very easy thing to do considering how many variations and designs there are of all of the products they have branded. After the release of their gas shotguns, Secutor did not waste time producing their spring series. Although spring shotguns are not a new mechanism, they have been underrated as a cheap and unworthy alternative to AEGs and other primaries.
ASG have previously released the CZ Scorpion EVO A3 with much success followed by not only the CZ P09 but the CZ SP01 Shadow as well. Now comes the CZ Bren 805 A1/A2 in both short and long variants. It is a pity that the CZ Bren 805 did not get the same PTW-esque treatment as the EVO A3, however it did seem to get the same external treatment in regards to how closely it resembles the real counterpart.
The Nighthawk Covert Ops pistol is the latest revision from the Nighthawk Recon version, however there are a few little changes that have been made since the last model. Unfortunately we have not had the ability to review the Nighthawk Recon and hence will not be able to provide a comparison of the different versions in this review.
KJ Works has been the first airsoft manufacturer to replicate this pistol as close to the real steel as possible. This pistol is focused for use in competition shooting in Airsoft International Pistol Shooting Competitions also known as Action Air Pistol Shooting in the UK. One very special feature of the SP01 Shadow is the fact that even though it has been specially created for competition shooting, it is considered to be a Production Division pistol. This means that it can be used in a class of competition shooting in which it competes against standard, unmodified pistols.
