Website Problems at Frontline Conflicts

Steve from Frontline Conflicts has been in touch with a piece of urgent news about his website. It seems they’re currently having issues with SSL authentication (the certificate which usually tells you whether a site is secure or not):

Our site is having a few problems with the SSL certificate as showing invalid when people are trying to register, when in actual fact the SSL certificate was updated at the end of december. The technical problem is currently being rectified by our admin bods based in Australia who are aware of the problem. All viewers are assured that they can continue (even though it says not recommended) to carry on with their browsing ect.

Many Thanks.

Steve (Frontline Conflicts)

Weaponblender.com – new airsoft / surplus retailer

Travis from weaponblender.com has been in touch to introduce their store to everyone in the airsofting field:

Hi, Just a little plug for our new website that will hopefully appeal to the most hardcore ‘simmers in a pretty unique way.
We realize that the typical army supply shop inventory gets boring fast, so we’re trying out some unusual things, with more sitting around that we haven’t even added to the website yet (portable field operating table, anyone?). The sky is really the limit with what we can dig up right now, so any requests would be welcome.
tube spread
Oh, and we also do the usuals: aegs, gas pistols, a few accessories (more to come) with some delightful(ly low) prices (promise). Anyway, here we are: weaponblender.com
Thanks for the attention, Travis (weaponblender.com)

Inokatsu AIMS Kit in stock at Russia Mania

Ting from Russian Mania Workshop has been in touch with news regarding one of the latest offerings from my favourite Airsoft company, Inokatsu. This time it’s the release of a kit to build the Romanian AIMS, which is very limited in numbers at the moment, and which Ting has managed to source a supply of:

AIMS

I just want to show you I got the extremely limited edition of Inokatsu AIMS in stock. Details are shown on my website: http://bizon.wordpress.com

Also Galil AR is available for sale too here.

Thanks a lot. Best Regards, Ting (Russian Mania Workshop)

The kit has intrigued me for several reasons. First of all it shows how much inokatsu kits have improved content-wise since their earlier Guarder kits, with the inclusion of a real steel sight, stock and also a full blowback bolt. Secondly if the sample image is anything to go by, Inokatsu have applied a nice weathered effect to the kit – something which I have always had to do with liberal application of sandpaper before. Good news all round!

At present, only 9 of these kits have been produced and Ting has 5. So if you like what you see, get moving! A fully built version will cost $840 and the kit $750. Considering the exclusivity of these items, I suspect they won’t be on sale long!

Latest roundup from the world of RAP4

Not strictly airsoft related, but here’s a little update regarding the latest developments in the Real Action Paintball world:

Real Action Paintball is proud to announce the new 40mm Grenade Launcher. This amazing new tool is designed for the AK47-style markers, or as a standalone unit. This is the first 40mm Grenade Launcher-style unit designed for AK47-style paintball markers!

RAP4 40MM GL2

The 40mm Grenade Launcher comes in two versions: one for standard .68 paintball markers, and the other, .43 caliber paintball markers. The .68 caliber version can be mounted on all .68 caliber AK47 look-a-like paintball markers!

The 40mm Grenade Launcher is made of aircraft aluminum with a functional trigger and safety switch. It also has an adjustable sight—it’s externally the spittin’ image of the real thing! They are solidly built and made to last, and RAP4 fans take heart: it’s compatible with all Thunder Grenade cartridges!

The 40mm Grenade Launcher is designed to take paintball to the next level of realism! For games with tanks or “rocket launcher rules,” get their special-color paint and prove you took out that tank with a “grenade!” Take ‘em out with the 40mm Grenade Launcher!

This is especially for the opposing force—when you want to play OpFor in realistic scenarios—so you can have a little more fun playing the bad guy. The 40mm Grenade Launcher is the first grenade launcher that is compatible with the AK47 style paintball makers, to help the bag guys enjoy the game and to give the opposing team a real challenge. (Real Action Paintball)

As well as this GP30 offering is a selection of Tippman conversion kits, which convert standard Tipmann paintball markers into a range of semi recognisable rifles:

A5 Carbine Kit

A5 Sniper Kit

There’s plenty more of these on the Real Action Paintball website, so feel free to take a quick peak!

AirsoftPlayers.com down for good

I’ve just been having a quick chat with Matt (aka Pikachoad) who ran AirsoftPlayers.com. He’s confirmed with me that he simply didn’t have the time to keep the site up and running anymore and has taken the decision to pull the plug on it.

The DNS settings were changed before he could put up a message and he asked me to add a brief story up for him. The content itself on his site hasn’t been lost and that will appear back on the internet somewhere else in due course.

There will be another website coming to the AP domain, but I don’t know if it’ll be a retail entity or another fansite. More details as and when we get them,
