Cavalry TOTO II Tactical Headset

In case you missed it RedWolf have a close copy of the SELEX PRR sets as used by UK forces on pre-order now:

New Cavalvy TOTO II Tactical Headset (2006-12-29): An exclusive scoop on a fresh new product from a company called Cavalvy. Although it may not be a household name, they are sure to gain recognition from their latest product ? the TOTO II Tactical Headset.

It is a close replica of the SELEX Personal Role Radio (PRR) as used by the British Army and NATO Forces. At first glance you could be forgiven for mistaking this for the real thing. Even on closer inspection, the quality and features closely resemble that of the real one. The headset is characterized by a low-profile – the slim shape makes it easy to be worn with other types of head wear such as ear protectors or helmets. It features three adjustable suspension straps which allow for a close and comfortable fit. The size is fully adjustable to cater for all sizes, and in testing proves to be comfortable without being restraining.

The vented ear cup design enables peripheral hearing or talk-through audio from electronic hearing protection. A flexible microphone is mounted low and can be adjusted into a variety of positions, connected to the headset is the flexible wire, which has a push-to-talk button. We tested the Toto II Tactical Headset, using a couple of IASUS radios, at the Redwolf Airsoft office and were pleased with the performance of the TOTO II.

Despite being divided by 6 floors, we could still pick up crystal clear reception from both ends, thanks to the TOTO II/ IASUS combination. The audio quality you get from the headset is superb, and the output is just as good, with a microphone that picks up what the user is saying without picking up on too much ambient background noise.

With the quality of the Cavalvy TOTO II Tactical Headset, it proves to be a truly worthy headset in its own right, and as a replica, it does the deeds too, following the aesthetical appearance and features of the original closely. All this comes at a highly affordable price, making it an ideal solution for tactical situations in skirmishing, to communicate effectively with your team.

Spanish event: Tormenta Monegros 27/28 January

Alberto from Airsoft Zaragoza (an event held in Spain) has mailed in about their upcomign event on  the 27/28 of January. Here’s the text from him, followed by the official press release:

Well, I am Alberto from Airsoft Zaragoza, in SPAIN, we are a group that has been u charge for two national events every year since our “social presentation” in January 05 with the first ever game held by “newcomers” as our way to be known and respected in the Airsoft world in Spain and it seems that we got it! :D.

Our anual games take place in Tardienta, in the Monegros Desert, what constitutes the only DESERT airsoft camp in Spain as long as we know and we could no avoid calling our events “Monegros desert Storm” after the “Desert Storm” operation held by the EEUU in the gulf.

This time is the 5th event and constitutes the 3º aniversary from our social ryising and we keep on the fiction nation of “Monegria” with much natural resources and a bad neighbour, the Alana nation, that got to invade and control it´s resources after the 4th event, in wich a 3X3 fight was held and even this way the Alanian troops got to control al the territories even with some UN observers and a democratization force in place.

One more time we are very happy to be able to count with players from all over Spain and of course invite foreign players to take a chance in our playground.

Alberto (Airsoft Zaragoza)

Here’s the official press release:

As it is being our normal and sadistic rhythm, airsoft Zaragoza suggests a new Desert Storm for the winter season.

This time the event Hill take place for 27 and 28 January, as always in the Tardienta air camp (Huesca). This is an airsoft convention which will count with some “tactical airsoft” as well as “tech airsoft” activities for all of you to enjoy.

A new Monegros Desert Storm, located as the previous events in the same argument plot of our fiction Monegrian Republic.

The plot continues were we left it last July, the Monegrian Republic fallen under the fist of the Alana’s invasion forces, after they took control on territories and infrastructures. The invaders are facing the Monegrian people’s effort to set their state free in a rude revolution attacking Alana forces in its own headquarters so as to push the invader back to their home.

During Saturday 27 we will have a skirmish under this plot with no resting time starting at 11.00 Am and until 20.00 PM.
As night will fall really dark we will them have some night-games from Saturday’s night to early Sunday:

– Night shooting range
– Night training shot
– Night tactical exercises (assault, flash operations…)

And of course a 3rd time safe zone to have some fun. For the Sunday, as normal, we will have more activities:

– shooting range.
– Orientation Patrol.
– Woodland clearing (sniper time!)

Inscription will be 25€ including:
– Insurance for each placer.
– Camp payment.
– Saturday’s meal (military meal packages, to eat DURING play).
– Saturday’s dinner, hot soup… when the night finishes the play and before night_based competitions.
– Sunday 28 breakfast.

We will have a tent based night, but there are plenty of facilities in the village to get a soft and hot bed arranged if you desire that instead a “manly” experience with other players in the airfield.

Quick VCR update

I thought I’d add a bit of text that Pablo posted in the VCR Bill section of the forums. There’s been a lot of questions lately about the bill, its affect and when it comes into play.

My understanding so far is that under the proposed scheme (set to come into play for April 2007) sites are encouraged to register with the ABA, then when a player goes to buy equipment their registration is validated against a known list of players.

The compulsory comencement dates set by government are 6th April and 1st October. The ABA have been told early spring so they assume the 6th april is the relevant date for us. The regulations must be distributed at least 21 days before that date, but as yet there is still no legal definition of a RIF (Realistic Imitation Firearm, as opposed to an IF). The ABA have a meeting with the Home Office next week.

At present, the ABA need more support from sites. The UKASGB which represents sites is working with the ABA to establish a scheme whereby players must register with a site in order to join a national database of players. Retailers (represented by UKARA) can then check this database to ensure they sell to airsoft skirmishers (to whom the exemption applies) and that they are complying with the law. If your regular site doesn’t sign up to the scheme, you won’t be able to register and therefore you won’t be able to buy guns from 6th April.

You can find the ABA website here, with the link to register to access their forums is hidden at the bottom of the page. We’d add more but as things stand news releases are few and just about all that’s relevant has been posted by Pablo at the top of the VCR forums.

At the moment there are obviously quite a few questions that remain unanswered which include how EU/HK/Japan/USA imports will work, direct EU imports across the border, customs declarations, and who is going to keep control of the proposed registration scheme. If you want to ask relevant questions I’d recommend registering on the ABA site and asking them there. We’ll add anything that’s noteworthy that is sent our way.

There’s also the M16 A3 RAS. There’s no details for the new mount, although there are a series of shots available for it on their webpages:

 

DeepFire M72A2

DeepFire have a new metal M72A2 version out that’s listed over at RedWolf (you can see it on their pages here). At the moment DeepFire‘s pages are loading very slowly so I’ll do my best to add as much here as possible. (NB: Please do note that the video and description are from a shop in HK and that the DeepFire LAW may not be legal to use or purchase in certain countries). The item is currently on pre-order however as you can see RedWolf have got hold of a functional production version so the full run can’t be that far away – although this video was shot in October of last year. Here’s the news from their pages:

Deep Fire M72A2 (Metal) (PRE-ORDER) Generally thought of as a weapon of the Vietnam War era, although has found a new lease of life in the ongoing operations in Iraq, with the U.S. Army and in Afghanistan by the Canadian Army. The low cost and relatively light weight make it ideal for the types of urban combat seen in these places. The M72 LAW was designed to replace the venerable bazooka as the primary anti-tank weapon after the Korean War. This portable one-shot 66mm anti-tank weapon was created by Talley Defense Systems, produced by Nammo Raufoss AS in Norway. The British Army used the Norwegian built version under the designation “Rocket 66mm HEAT L1A1, and is believed that the design of the Soviet RPG-18 is a direct copy.

The Deep Fire M72A2 uses any standard M203 gas BB shower shell. We tested it with Deep Fire’s own M203 shell, Madbull shells, Mosquito Molds, and King Arms shells. All worked great in this launcher. And of course that means you can use HFC134a gas, TOP GAS, Green Gas, Red Gas, or even CO2 in this launcher depending on what your shell takes. The shells are easily reloadable into the launcher through a center breech, accessible by opening the back of the launcher. The launcher collapses and extends just like the real thing with flip up sights.

Using BB shower shells, you can shoot just BBs, or you can just load up a fully charged shell and then plug foam rockets, nerf balls, water balloons, or pouches of baking flour into the smooth barrel to eject various fun objects. In the video below, we used a soft rubber NERF stress ball and a DEEP FIRE M203 shell charged with RED GAS. ***N.B. Doesn’t include shell in the package***

  • Length: (extended) 918mm
  • Length: (closed) 655mm
  • Caliber: 57mm Nerf Ball
  • Capacity : 1
  • Product Brand Deepfire
  • Product Code DF-M72A2MTL
  • Weight 5,500 g
  • Price (USD) $298.00 (RedWolf Airsoft)
  • The guys at RedWolf have also posted a video (well two actually there’s another here) of the replica working for you to drool over (if you’re a LAW fan that is):

    In 2007, we will develop the following new products for real world:Flash grenades, 1500 Lumen flash light, Fast Mag, Barrel Cover and more…

    New vests and gear from Highlander

    Gordon (Highlander Military) has sent in some news from them concerning their new line of tactical vests and military gear:

    Highlander is pleased to announce that details of it’s new Tactical Vests are now available from the website. Consisting of a full range of vests, from operational vests with full military spec to more affordable Enforcement vests.

    All our vests are constructed to our usual high standards, with bar tacked stress points and heavy XTP material for added durability. We also have a full range of military spec PLCE pouches that are fully compatible with current issue equipment.

     

    For the first time we have also included vests and pouches that use a one handed quick release system.

    This system uses what is often called a Spanish Buckle to allow one handed opening, and more importantly, closure on utility and ammo pouches. Simply pull the tab on the lock and the pouch can be opened, the pouch can then be secured once more by simply closing and
    reinserting the lock. All this can easily be done by touch and with a single hand. A massive improvement over traditional quick release or popper systems.

    Full details can be found here.

    Our full range is now in stores, so contact your local stockist for more information.

    Regards,

    Gordon McDonald

    Actionhobby Purchasing Direct from China

    News in from Paul at Actionhobbys.co.uk is that they have decided to cut the middleman and go direct to the source. Read below for Paul’s full announcement and their 2007 lineup.

    Hi Arnie,

    Just to inform our customers that we have now gone direct to china rather than using an importer, this is because due to popular demand for new AEG’s and also being let down many times with orders we feel that it is about time that someone in the UK supplied a large range of Chinese guns, rather than just a few you see on websites, there are many guns out there, (over 50+ available) We have for starters ordered JG SVD Dragonov, D-Boys M4 S-system, JG MP5SD5 full stock ,M14 in wood stock with the black version due end of January as it is in the container And finally the JG G36 As for prices I am note sure as 1/2 ton of air freight with 13 pence per kilo airline handling charge then 4.5% duty and finally the nice old vat man at 17.5% it all adds up The goods will be loaded and shipped within 3 days, 5 days shipping and 24hr clearance we should have them with 10 days I will post them as soon as received on the website and we will be ordering new lines every 2 – 3 weeks to keep ahead

    Regards Paul Actionhobbys.co.uk
