King Arms to release (more) raped Armalites

Airsoft Option have just kindly provided me with the following images of some new Armalite variants to be released by King Arms. There’s quite a few variants, so I’ll let the images do the talking (click on the images for a better view):

ka-ras-08b ka-ras-10b

ka-ras-09b ka-ras-11b

ka-ras-12b

Okay, so these are not to my personal taste, but I’m sure there’s plenty out there who will happily buy twenty! Many thanks to Airsoft Option for the heads up. :)

Air-Tronics: Business As Usual

Dave from www.air-tronics.com has been in touch with the latest updates regarding their innovative range of gizmos for our AEGs:

Hi all, Dave from AirTronics here.

After all our issues, which we have resolved, we are back up and running again.

The ATC-3B1 GEN 2 unit is out now, allowing a user to have both hardwired Trigger Bypass and movable 3 Round Burst modules in exactly the same unit – the 2 unit types have been merged in the GEN 2. Just choose which way you want to use it, and use it that way.

Orders will now be done on a monthly basis – order before the 20th of the month, and the order will be shipped at the end of the same month.

Pop over and have a look at www.air-tronics.com

Cheers,

Dave. (www.air-tronics.com)

ASUK Update

Luke from ASUK has been in touch with a detailed update. He’s covered all the bases so I’ll let him do the talking:

Hi Airsofters,

Just a quick update on what’s been going on with ASUK, what new offers we have and what new products we’ve had in recently.

We’ve had a few technical glitches running in the background of the website making some confirmation emails fail and causing some other general problems, but a new website is being constructed on a whole new framework, which will soon make browsing far simpler, even easier to navigate and enjoyable viewing all your favourite airsoft items. The new website embraces a more clean approach with many new dynamic features we look forward to revealing.

On the special offers front we now have Proud’s ever popular Lightweight Plate Carrier in CB and OD on offer at £50. This is the last run of Proud’s LPC they’ve undertaken so no more will be newly available for the time being after this lot has gone. STAR MP7 magazines are on offer so grab a trusted box of mags for your MP7 at a great price. Various pouches from Proud remain on offer so you can build a bargain loadout or complete your current one, such as the single magazine pouches and SAW pouch. The G&P bargains on magazine multibuys continue supplying midcap magazines at bonkers prices, with prices dropping continually on double and triple (or even quadruple on M4) magazine multibuys.

We’ve had a lot of interest in the new Proud/Toy Soldier combined IBH helmet available in Tan and Black. It is an extremely comfortable model, well built and aesthetically pleasing. It includes fully adjustable and padded rear and chin straps ensuring a good fit on most head sizes. The NVG mount point is very solid and well detailed. They work excellently in combination with the Swimmer style tactical headset from Toy Solider. The headset provides very clear comms in a very fashionable manor and can be kept safe in a fleece bag included when not in use.

MAG now have extended their box sets of magazines to include the MP7, available in 100 round or 50 round box sets each containing 6 magazines, priced at £45 and £35 respectively. Like the rest of the MAG range, they enable a comfortable sized magazine loadout at a fraction of the traditional cost, whilst not compromising on performance or quality.

A further addition to the mid capacity magazine market (which should please many M14 owners) is the King Arms box sets of 10 x 110 round magazines suited to the TM M14. They come in a smart camo styled box and are built to the same standard as any similar MAG product. Finally the M14 owners can take advantage of value mid capacity magazines!

Tanaka Adjustable Gas System for Export: bad news…

Graham from Ironfoot Industries has been in touch with some bad news regarding his previous insider info on the possibility of an adjustable gasbolt for export Tanaka rifles:

Having spoken more to our wholesaler in Japan it would appear we misunderstood.

Tanaka will be doing a Export version of, for example the AICS, but although it will not have the .98 joule restriction, it will still not have the adjustable gas bolt :(

So its back to Lobbying Tanaka to reverse this shortsighted policy.

Best Regards

Ares Ops: European Milsim Event Organisers

Mike (Hartmann) has been in touch with details of Ares Ops, a venture to make Milsim events more accessible for all:

Hello,

My name is Mike, I am one of the two leaders of a brandnew team (or better “endeavor”) on the airsoft field of activities.
Since the start of 2007 our team provides a new (and to my knowledge unique) effort to make MILSIM more popular and realistic but nonetheless enjoyable for everybody.

We are regarding ourselves as a true service provider in the case of MILSIM. We want to support and help other airsoft teams to organize and operate MILSIM Airsoft events and most of all we want to support them in gaming by providing our skills in leadership, soldiering/fighting and instruction for tactical purposes… That means we consider ourselves as true mercenaries (by Airsoft standards – not for realworld tasks) for other teams and the event/airsoft business.

I must admit that due to the fact we have started earlier this year we still seek personnel and sure we are by now only playing in the surrounding countries of Germany like Belgium and France and others, we would be honored to get invited to other countries as well.

I would like to invite you to come visit our website and review it: http://www.ares-ops.com

And please excuse our English mistakes (here and on the website), as we are non-native speakers…

Best regards,
Mike (aka “Hartmann“)

Second In a Series Of Reviews On MadBull’s Gemtech Products

fully mounted (Medium)I have just completed the second review in the Madbull series that I am writing for Arnies Airsoft, this time it’s on the Gemtech HALO silencer. Again Madbull has produced a top notch item that is 100% licensed by Gemtech.

This is what GemTech have to say on their product:

The HALO is our true ‘grunt’ suppressor – rock solid, easy to use, and requires no modification to the host weapon. It utilizes a simple, patented, no-tools mounting system that slips over most NATO weapon 5.56mm flash hiders. There is no need for proprietary mounts or modifications to the barrel. It may be swapped between many different weapons easily, including the M16, M4, HK416, and M249.

So does the MadBull version meet up to the same standards? Well head on over to the review section to find out!

Echo1 Announce Latest Release

echo1

The guys over at Echo1 have have informed me that their new AK line is ready and waiting to be shipped to wholesalers and stores.

echo12

We have just released our new AK lines. Again, Echo 1 USA provides the best local service and warranty through our channels in USA.

The AK47 RIS is designed for fast action and light weight. The tactical RIS handguard allows you attach more tactical gear onto your Airsoft rifle. The ergo-grip is also included.

Site maintenance – DB fixes underway

I thought I’d add a small update to say that the site database is currently undergoing some maintenance so you might get some wierd errors whilst this is carried out. Unfortunately with an operational site some work has to be done while everything is still working. I’ve put in some patches to keep things trickling over as best they can under the heavy loads we get and to help auto-fix any errors that crop up. At the moment it’s just a case of holding on till the new machine is ready, which is taking longer than expected.

To update you: We’ve now put in for the new server and are waiting for the hosting firm to come back with the new box for us so we can move everything into it’s new home. We were wating for a specific specification, but that has not been available, so we’ve switched processors and are grabbing a multi CPU AMD system (rather than Intel). We should have that all done in a week or so (fingers crossed).

Update 1300 13/03/07: DB fixes were completed through the night until late AM today. The forums should be back working again now, any errors, please report them in the relevant section and they’ll get looked into.
