The best UMAREX / VFC GLOCK made so far?!

The VFC GLOCK19X GBB is around for some time now and players got their experience with it already. Some say “it´s just another GLOCK” and others think “the best one made so far”! So what is the truth now?

Fact is that VFC did listen to the feedback from the airsoft community about the problems with previous models like the Gen3 and Gen4 17s and 19s to make this special model from the real steel GLOCK series a special one in airsoft too. READ MORE…

Strike-Hold–Leapfest

Strike-Hold have published a report on Leapfest which you may find interesting or inspiring if you’ve ever considered jumping out of an aeroplane yourself (with a parachute) or not:

Leapfest is the largest, longest standing, international static line parachute training event and competition. Conducted by the Rhode Island Army National Guard, the purpose of Leapfest is to promote international camaraderie and Esprit de Corps among Airborne Soldiers, while also showcasing the capabilities of the Rhode Island National Guard.

Paratroopers are specially selected, trained, and highly disciplined soldiers. They are able to rapidly deploy, land, and sustain a powerful combat force to achieve strategic objectives – such as seizing and holding key terrain or infrastructure. They can also be dropped behind enemy lines to conduct raids and other types of tactical interdiction missions. They are typically used as countries’ rapid deployment forces, with the ability to operate on any terrain in any environment with little warning.

The “BB finder” is now live on airsoftdb.com

Airsoftdb have launched a “BB finder” to help you find the BBs you are searching for:

Hi Arnies Airsoft,

airsoftdb_bb_finder_combination

We are now happy to release (what we call) the “BB finder” on Airsoftdb (or AirsoftDB) so you as an airsoft player easily can find where to buy the BB products you are looking for.

This functionality is in early beta (and on experimental basis) just like this website itself so improvements are being made constantly.

Currently you can find BBs from around 40 different brands, but more will be added later on (as well as eg. more detailed tech spec lists).

Also with this, you will see the (indexed) retailers from your country first, per product. If there are no indexed shops in your country (with the specific product or not paired yet) you can choose to see a wider area.

The main functionality is still the search and at this point we have close to 400 indexed shops from around 36 countries (+ several states in the US). The work to add shops is an ongoing process and our goal is to add so many as possible, so visitors from all countries will get a good experience.

We hope that many enjoy what we do for the airsoft community.

Lets try the BB finder: https://www.airsoftdb.com/products/airsoft-bbs/

eSilver Edge Gear Box

After years of development, APS finally released their first Electronic Gear Box, named eSilver Edge Gear Box. A micro chip (Super Dynamic Unit) S.D.U.  that works together with magnet gears set, reinforced piston, quick change spring guide and micro switch trigger that gives you instant trigger response when shooting.  Below are the features of this eSilver Edge Gear Box:

Outstanding GearBox Specification:

Base on our design and testing, eSilver Edge Gear Box works perfectly under 7.4v to 12.5v. The current are always stable at <11 Amps in any voltages between 7.4v to 12.5v. Low and stable Amps means it drains less battery and the lifespan of the components could last longer.

Use of Advanced S.D.U. chips

The S.D.U. chipset that used in eSilver Edge Gear Box has a unique function that stop the gearbox from further damage if electric current is too high. Simply to say, electric current / Ampere will increase if there is a malfunction inside the gearbox. For instant, bad motor, damaged gears or short circuit. When our S.D.U. detected more than 5 trigger presses in exceed Amps, the whole gearbox will shut down to prevent further damage. User has to disconnect and then reconnect the power supply to reboot the gearbox, we strongly recommended user to check the internal immediately if mal-function happened.

Micro Switch Trigger

eSilver Edge Gear Box standard comes with micro switch trigger works together with the S.D.U.,  providing you an instant trigger response when shooting. Base on our testing, the response time of the switch is just 0.02 sec, with the short stroke design of the trigger, it is unbelievable fast and you won’t feel any trigger delay when shooting.

Reinforced parts

APS standard Silver Edge Gear Box has long been famous in its durability. APS eSilver Edge Gear Box further develop its strength, our electronic parts could works between -20°C to 80°C and our mechanical parts could works between -40°C to 85°C. The gear box shell is reinforced, it works under M190 spring used. The rear wires of the gearbox were braided with PET sleeving provides extra protection for the wires. eSilver Edge gearbox standard comes with full steel teeth piston that increase the durability of gearbox too.

Ambidextrous design

There are several electronic gearbox manufacturers in the market but none of them come with Ambidextrous design. APS eSilver edge gearbox revolutionary made an electronic gearbox that could be used in Ambidextrous guns, it works perfectly on APS Ambidextrous rifle fully compatible with V2 Gearbox in the market.

To conclude, APS eSilver Edge Gear box has so many advance features that it will sooner become one of the best gearbox in the market. The Electronic S.D.U is replaceable, repairing is easy and friendly. It comes with Dean’s plug but optionally convertible to Tamiya plug with EBB / AEG function base on request (MOQ 20pcs). Parts are TM compatible, which means further upgrade is available if needs.
