RMW goes western? :o

image No, not really. Ting from RMW has instead set up a new company specialising in equipment for those of you insane enough to not only own Eastern bloc kit:

As you may know, Rhino is a spinned off from Russian Mania Workshop.  We are now working hard to fill up the warehouse. :)
Here are some products online, they are the Prime CNC Metal Body for WA M4 GBB with Colt Defence trademark.  The new metal body also has a different color coating which is semi gross black which is more realistic than before.
http://www.rhinoairsoft.com/details.asp?ProdId=PRIME_MB_WA03&cat=8
The other one is the Bomber custom M16VN GBB, if you are Vietnam fans, don’t miss this great replica, the upper and lower receiver are both made by CNC process, to remind you, this is limited edition.
http://www.rhinoairsoft.com/details.asp?ProdId=BM_M16A1VN_GBB&cat=2
Furthermore, we just stock in the Bomber speed bolt for WE SCAR, the original WE SCAR bolt is made by steel which is very heavy.  Hence ROF is comparatively slow.  Bomber has made an aluminium version speed bolt so that the ROF of the SCAR after installed the speed bolt is dramatically increased.  This is especially obvious when using japan 134a gas.
http://www.rhinoairsoft.com/details.asp?ProdId=BM_SCAR_BOLT&cat=5
We do offer discount when you buy a WE SCAR with the speed bolt.  So, you can install the speed bolt in CQB game with weaker gas so your enemy won’t hurt too much and use green gas in jungle for longer effective shooting range.
About Magpul-PTS, just a quick update, the long waiting Magpul ACS stock will be available next week, Rhino Airsoft is now taking pre-order.
The Magpul PTS ACS (Adaptive Carbine/Storage) is a drop-in replacement for the standard M4 AEG stock body.
Four colors available, BK, OD, DE and FG

http://www.rhinoairsoft.com/details.asp?ProdId=MP-ACS-DE&cat=10
http://www.rhinoairsoft.com/details.asp?ProdId=MP-ACS-FG&cat=10
http://www.rhinoairsoft.com/details.asp?ProdId=MP-ACS-OD&cat=10
The second one is the Magpul UBR in DE, it’s now in stock and ready to ship, limited supply.

Red Mist 2 event review

Having returned from another memorable film-sim game organised by Gunman Airsoft (with thanks to First and Only for offering up The Asylum), I thought it was only fair to this time write a review.

The review is extremely honest, and quite detailed. If you don’t have time to read the whole thing, here’s an extract:

I’ve tried to be as honest as possible about this event, and what I hope comes out of this is that the event was a greatly enjoyable and a very memorable experience from the perspective of the Communist troups. I’ve been highly impressed by Gunman’s Filmsim events (so much so that I’ve attended every Cold War event so far, and intend to continue doing so, despite the lengthy drive down to Suffolk / Kidderminster), and I’ve yet to experience sim events of this calibre elsewhere. There’s few people so committed to getting the experience right that they would plough cash into buying considerable kit for people to use, and this is reflected in the experience I’ve had at each of their games.

Marlowe on Redwolf TV

A repeat I know, but I thought you’d all like to get a second nosey at my ugly mug being humiliated on Redwolf TV. 

Whilst on holiday in HK I was asked to pay a visit to Red Wolf Airsoft’s Headquarters. I didn’t quite expect a full Top Gear-esque interview and challenge – especially with a pistol I’ve never used before in a climate I’m unfamiliar with and with a whole other arsenal of excuses to boot, but…Hey, just watch the video.

I should warn you that there’s a lot of talking. If you’re the type who flicks through a book and just looks at the pictures, skip to the actual challenge at 6:00 and prepare to be…er…amazed. :)

Embarrassing, yes, but it speaks for itself really. I also bought a GHK AKS74 whilst at their HQ – I couldn’t resist, with them lying around. The review can be found here.

GHK AKS74 Review

27072009911 As promised, here’s the start of my review of the newly released GHK AKS74 variant:

While on my recent visit to Redwolf in Hong Kong, as unfortunately chronicled here, I was lucky enough to be shown around. One of the main things that caught my eye was some of the first of the freshly released GHK AKS74 and AK74M variants, which I covered in a recent news post. I couldn’t leave without buying one of them, and with my recent love of all things Afghan War era, it had to be the AKS74 I went for!

To make things more interesting I compared the GHK AKS74 to the Dboys Variant upon which its externals are based.

Association of British Airsoft

AOBA_enter There’s been a lot of speculation over the Association of British Airsoft (AOBA), the latest in a series of UK airsoft organisations to spring up in the wake of the Violent Crime Reduction Act, after a number of people wandered across its website address.

Mathew Jarmain, Director of the new organisation has just forwarded us a press release by their Secetary, which hopefully might help clarify the purpose and intent of the organisation:

I would like to introduce ourselves and announce the formation of the Association of British Airsoft the AOBA.org.net
Your association is brought to you by airsofters like yourself.
Mathew Jarmain – Director (mjarmain@aoba.org.uk)
Phillip Bromley – Secretary (pbromley@aoba.org.uk
Mark Bromley (Not related) – Artwork/Airsofter
Freddie Drennan – Junior Airsofter/Graphics/Film

The Association of British Airsoft is run by players, for the players; the non-profit organisations main aim being to bring benefits to Airsoft players; whilst also educating the public and promoting the sport as a whole.
Membership with the AOBA brings a whole host of benefits for players, including full and comprehensive personal insurance, all members will be provided with an authentic registration card that will allow you to avail yourself of the VCRA defence and permit you to buy RIF’s. Also available is free legal advice to any player who finds themselves needing it.
We are working closely with retailers to provide tangible benefits to members with guaranteed high discounts to all members, and we want to get game site’s involved and both listening to and working with you the players.
We are the first group set up purely for the benefit & promotion of the players and the sport. Pre registration is free to join and we want to give players the opportunity to have their comments heard but more importantly listened to.
The Association of British Airsoft will be working with individual players as well as Teams, Game Site’s and Retailers. Our aim is to provide a voice for the players first and foremost because without you in the field playing our wonderful sport there simply is no Airsoft.
We are sure you have many questions and queries and we ask anyone who does have questions to forward them to us with the corresponding email address to obtain the correct information. We want to reduce as much unnecessary forum speculation/rumours.

players@aoba.org.uk
sites@aoba.org.uk
retailers@aoba.org.uk
general@aoba.org.uk

We have made our website public to show you the players that we are here and on the way. It will take some time to become fully established and we ask if you have any ideas or suggestions or feedback however constructive, to contact us directly.

The AK105 replica may have been on on sale for a few days now, but the AK74M and AKS74 (dubbed AK74NM and AK74N)

I’m collecting an AKS74 hopefully on Monday in HK. I’ll post a detailed review as soon as I get home. :)

Gunman Airsoft score a hat trick of games at STANTA training facility

Yes, that’s right. Josh at Gunman has pulled off a bit of a coup this summer. After his success with Red Mist one last year, Gunman Airsoft have managed to land not one but three seperate events this late summer – autumn at the vast MOD STANTA site in Norfolk.

Having attended the previous Red Mist event at the Eastmere Village section of the site and the practice weekender for Red Mist 2, I can heartily recommend Gunman Events as being some of the most enjoyable around – and for me they are unparalled in enjoyment among any of the mil / film sim events I have participated in. I travel 300 miles each time, so you can’t say fairer than that as a recommendation!

Free Kit Hire

For those of you worried about getting kit together for any of these game, Gunman also offers  free kit hire for these events, meaning there’s no need to scour fleabay for obscure kit – unless you’re like me and like that sort of thing. ;)

Airsoft under threat in Scotland

With thanks to www.freefotos.com for providing this free image. Chris u’5 has posted on the forums with some rather worrying news and a request:

As you are aware I started a thread recently regarding the very real possibility of both airgunning and airsoft being banned in Scotland.

There is a lot going on in the Scottish airgun community currently to oppose this proposed change in law and BASC is also heavily involved.

Currently there are very mixed messages coming from the SNP government regarding their intentions regarding this matter, initially after discussion with BASC the SNP promised there would not be an outright ban on airguns in Scotland.

Recently however they have been suggesting otherwise and it appears they are aiming for a complete blanket ban. BASC have been in contact with the SNP over the past few days and they have again stated that a complete ban is not their intention and they have apparently said that airguns will be allowed for the use of vermin control or recognised sporting events.

Unfortunately the question of airsoft has not been made clear in this entire debacle.
As far as the SNP are concerned airsoft and airguns are all one thing, I am very worried that they will not recognise airsoft skirmishing as one of their "recognised sporting events" and I have the feeling when they say this they are referring to airgun sports such as Hunter Field Target.

Tonight a petition was posted at the No.10 website calling for Westminster to regain control of firearm law and not allow the Scottish Government to destroy our sport.
Naturally I am a cynic when it comes to politics but at this stage I feel we must do anything we can to prevent this potential change in law to occur.

http://petitions.number10.gov.uk/ScottishGunBan/

Obviously this is a potentially serious matter for our sport so I would be extremely grateful to you if you could assist in this campaign.

Kind regards and best wishes,
Chris
