ICS announce release dates of L85A2

Just got word from the team at ICS that the L85A2 has completed it’s testing and will be release on April 21st. It may take some time for this to filter through the wholesalers to the shops, expect to see this at your local stores around the beginning of May.

More updates on the ICS L85 and L86

L85 Well ICS has released more information on the up coming L85 range and this time they have allowed me to post images of not only the finished product but also its internals, which are unique to this model.

Currently the final version is under going intensive testing and already they have done some fine adjusting of the internals.

So will the ICS L85 offer the best bang for bucks or will it be relegated to “Also ran” ?

Chinese M72 LAW announced!

M72 (Medium) Paul at EBTactical (Ebay Prohibited) has just sent me images of a new product coming out of China within the next 3 or 4 days and has sent me images.

That’s right an airsoft version of the M72 LAW. From what I have been told this will be a fully functioning Airsoft replica of the famous portable one-shot 66 mm anti-tank weapon.

RPG (Medium) This is definitely going to be on the wish list of pretty much any Vietnam reenactment players!

Not only that but Paul will also be stocking the infamous RPG  that is pretty much used by every third world army and is certainly on my wish list for my Terrorist/Militant load out!

ICS Exclusive: New MP5 Split Gearbox design

P1130766 (Medium) Well ICS are straight in there for 2008 news with the release of their new MP5 split gear box design. Owners of MP5’s will know how difficult it is to break down and maintain the gear boxes on these models and ICS has worked hard in the closing months of 2007 to develop a gear box that makes this process easier.

Right now we have no other details on this, nor when it is likely to be released on to the market.

But yet again it seems ICS is clearly listening to our requests and acting on them. It looks like 2008 will be a very innovative year for ICS.

Review line up for 2008

arnie sig

Well 2007 was a pretty busy year for writing reviews and some of you have asked me what the line up for reviews for 2008 will be.

First of all I would like to thank all the manufacturers who supported Arnie’s Airsoft in 2007.

Without their contributions we wouldn’t have been able to bring you the many scoop’s and prerelease reviews as we did in 2007 and it looks like 2008 will be another great year for Arnie’s.

As you know I have no idea what products will be sent us but I can tell you the line up that will be reviewed over the next month or so.

With plenty more to come, as you can see the initial lineup for 2008  is very Russian influenced! So sit back and enjoy what should be a very eventful year in the Airsoft community!

Tokyo Blackhole Show 2008

P1060506 (Medium) Well it’s that time of year again where the loons that love the sport head out to Tokyo for the biannual Black Hole Show. This year’s show took place over the 5th and 6th of January and needless to say I grabbed my camera and headed on in to the city for the event.

Now over the years I have been to the show I have reported that it has got worse, this year was no different and the show was dominated by booths selling re-branded Chinese copies and German Nazi memorabilia, which out of personal views I avoided like the plague.

So to find out just what went off at this year’s show head on in to the forums and read all about what you missed here!
