New reviews online

Two other new reviews have also been added online today, first up is the WA Shorty written byArmourpiercing (aka Luke Dobson) , the other is a review of the TM MK23 NBB by Hissing Sid (aka Simon Crewe).

IveryMusic updates

Tim dropped me a line with an update from his site, like I said before it’s not strictly Airsoft, but we’re allowed the odd random post on here. The album is up for sale, and feedback (good or bad) on the tracks would be appreciated by him on his forums:

As some of you will know IveryMusic have recently released Tim Ivery’s debut album “Before You Wake”. Ivery Music has been a very strong supporter of Airsoft behind the scenes, and a huge supporter of this site. Tim Ivery announced a while back that 10% of all album sales generated from the Airsoft community will be deposited in an Airsoft protection fund, to allow for legal research to be done into attempting to protect the legal status of Airsoft. So for all their support, come on guys, buy a copy of the CD/DVD set. The music package includes a DVD with lots of bonus tracks, music videos etc, and for only 16 – inclusive of postage and packaging that represents extremely good value for money. Head on over to iverymusic.com and sign up to their forums, (they’ve put up a dedicated forum section for Airsofters); if you’re interested go to the shop page, and buy that album. (IveryMusic)

CA news and whispers

The story you are about to hear is based on actual events, the names have been changed to protect the innocent… I got to have a chat with some folks just back from visiting Classic Army this month and was able to ask a few questions about what’s they’ve been up to of late.

The CA M249 is indeed in the works still with them. The CA release will use a TM compatible gearbox, so should be pleasing to anyone after a 249 that’s more than an expensive paperweight in stock form. Several varient prototypes are in the works, and the line is due for release in the first half of 2005.

The G36 line is going to be expanded with a scope/handle version coming to light shortly. It’s unknown if it’s the G36/KE/K varient at the moment. There’s a mystery new AEG lined up for next year sometime, but as it’s still in development at the moment and not near completition they are cagey about details being released for the moment… so you’ll just have to guess as to what it is.

Airsoft Armoury HK offers

Okay, well this is bound to cause confusion, a store by the name of Airsoft Armoury has opened in HK, so first things first – this is nothing to do with Airsoft Armoury Ltd UK. The guys at Airsoft Armoury HK have a Christmas offer on, and while you’re at their site, checkout the M700 with PCS and camo stock:

There is a Christmas sale going on at Airsoft Armoury. This sale includes some of the most popular airsoft products around, and also allows for you to make a custom sale package. These custom packages can have up to a 5% additional discount. They also have a unique feature in which you can get a full quote instantly! This quote includes all the sales discounts, as well as all shipping charges! (Airsoft Armoury HK)

Zero One says farewell to Classic Army

Zero One Airsoft have updated their website with news that they have now ceased to stock CA products, instead selling ICS in their place. Here’s the latest:

That’s right – after over 6 years business with Classic Army, we are at last saying goodbye. Over the years their support, service and speed have decreased so much we’ve had to think about letting them go. We pride ourselves on being able to maintain good stocks of everything we sell, and get it to you (the most important bit!) as soon as we can. Classic Army just can’t provide this level of service, and this shows with the lack of stock they are able to supply on a constant basis. If you buy a gun, you want to know that if anything goes wrong, the spares will be available to fix it. That’s our thinking too!

BUT, it wasn’t hard to find better quality replacements – we will be providing superior ICS equivalents for the whole C/A AEG range, backed with lengthy warranties and 100% spare parts backup. We’ll also make sure that, and in most cases this has already been done, all other C/A products previously sold by us have been replaced with much better alternatives, such as ICS, G&G, G&P and HurricanE. (Zero One Airsoft)

CA36C review online

The first stocks of the Classic Army CA36C hit retailers in the EU yesterday and thanks to Henrik over at ActionSportGames A/S and ClassicArmy, we can bring you what is certainly the longest review we’ve ever done of a product before it hits your local shops.

Working closely with ActionSportGames A/S we were very kindly given access to the final prototype that was released before full scale manufacture of the production version took place. So how does CA’s new AEG weigh up against the competition? Read the full review to find out.

Latest from Endoshoji

Click here to visit EndoshojiThe guys at Endoshoji Japan have sent over an email with the latest and greatest from them. They’ve been reworking their site at the moment and updating the graphics and look of the site. Not everything is finished yet, so a few pages may have that ‘under construction’ look. Even though it’s not quite finished the improvement is nice to see.

In the new gear department Endoshoji have heard direct from Tokyo Marui that the TM M4 Series S-System will be released on Dec 09/2004. They also have news and shots of the new Maruzen M11CQB IV Limited Edition (seen inset). All the new products can be seen on their "what’s new" page.
