gilogo The guys at AirsoftGI are holding some summer competitions (full information can be found here, or below):

Starting 6/25; Ending 7/30

We have had an increase in the volume of phone calls recently in regards to our sale. The reoccurring question that seems to be on everyone’s mind is, “Why are you only giving way guns to your walk-in store customers?” We didn’t have a good answer, so we thought about it for a while, and here is what we came up with. Throughout the month of July we will be GIVING AWAY merchandise to you, our valued customers.

New gear at RedWolf

Kai over at RedWolf has dropped in some updates from them:

Hi guys & gals,

You’ve probably noticed it already, but in case you haven’t there are two new pre-orders on at the moment, all pre-orders taken will benefit from a 5% discounted price:

  1. type89fnlTokyo Marui Type 89-F – It’s the Type 89 with a folding stock. The real gun equivalent is used by AFV crew and Paratroopers. This Marui version will have the Version 8 ‘box with the 3 burst mechanism. Click here.
  2. MRZ-P99FS-LnlMaruzen P99 Fixed Slide Set – Ok, so this is not so much a new product, but Maruzen will be re-releasing their venerable fixed-slide version of their much-loved P99. Click here.

  

AS-SLUGNEWS-WnlThen, just a brief update on the Airsoft Surgeon Slugshot – there’s been quite some interest in the product. The slugshot shells have just been released, along with the slug ammo. The shells come in a box of 5, while there are two versions of slug ammo: first there is the 1.9g type A and then there is the 3g type B, both come in a bag of 50. Shortly, we will be expecting spare O-rings for the slug shells, which are made in Germany to ensure the highest quality. For Airsoft Surgeon Slugshot shells and Slugs click here.

Please note that these shells can only be used with a custom-made Slugshot gun from Airsoft Surgeon, which are available here.

New Dorking Skirmish Site – Chris Ryan there this weekend!

John from the Elite Action Games crew has been in touch with an update on the first game at their new Dorking site, along with some news of the next game coinciding with a visit by The One Who Got Away:

Elite Action Games are pleased to announce the successful launch of Dorking with over 90 players turning up for the opening on the 17th June. It was a fast a furious day with assaults on the US styled Command Post (CP), across the paintball village and fort and several other gaming areas. From the posts on forums, players loved the sited. Just like to take this opportunity to thank all those that came along and hope they enjoyed the day and the free raffle.

Obviously we are still working hard on the new safezone and various other scenarios to vary the days play. Currently there has another 1000 sand bags to be put up around the CP and plans for the VC village are coming along. Still no further news on the 432s and the Chinook bodies, but we will keep you posted on that front.

Lastly, Chris Ryan of ?The one who got away? fame and obviously one of the few known SAS operatives will be at Dorking this weekend (1stJuly) running 100 people over the assault course at Dorking. There MAY be an opportunity to meet him at lunch time or after close of play.

Montenegros Desert Storm VI: Major Spanish Skirmish this weekend!

 

Alberto from the Spanish Airsoft Federation has been in touch to let everyone know of a major airsofting weekend game occuring this weekend:

carteltmvipublicidaddp7Monegria and the countries we all know can?t get the peace so easily, even when the last event left some order and got the invaders thrown away from the free Monegrian Republic there is always something to care about in this arid desert?

It can?t be in other way, Airsoft Zaragoza is proud to present the Monegros Desert Store in its 6th edition that will take place as usual in Tardienta this weekend, 30 June and 1 July

We do know that Spanish players are not afraid of dust, wind and enemies, but are they capable to face the desert sun with temperatures raising fast up to 40 Celsius degrees? Well, the answer has been told to us a few times and we know they can use their mind and strength their bodies, but they also can like fresh drinks and some shadows, we got a perfect compromise this time.

This edition, seen the nice idea night games are, will have a new torque, during the hot hours in the day we will have crony target range, team battles, sniper search and the usual competitive tasks to let everyone get clear if they rock or not; and for the night time we got a non stop game from about 18:00 in the Saturday to 10:00 on Sunday, there will be no peace for all the night and any electronical device is authorised.

clip_image0021But if you want to know more, we have more for you, this confrontation is held with all the help from the Spanish Airsoft Federation and according to it?s rules, as part of the national airsoft circuit being organised, we also will have the sponsors that have been supporting us and some new ones, Sherman Survival, the best known airsoft store has more than never (if an XM8 is not enough for you), Altus, number one in military and civil equipment in Spain will take here some free stuff including combat and civil first class and airsoft-proof garments, ASOLO another airsoft supplier will take it?s first step with us, Schweppes has a whole deal for us to get fresh drinks and shadowed places to have a rest and War Heat, the magazine, is starting the collaboration, don?t pass the opportunity to become famous!. Of course all this organization could not be held without the Tardienta-Monegros adventure centre that has been giving us a place to enjoy all this time and the main piece in the game, PLAYERS that confide in us event after event.

Yeah, this sound really good, but there is also a place for players; an expert ?airsoft gunsmith? will be here all weekend to help you fix, upgrade and shim your material, players have a place to deal without post cost and we got the biggest deal, we got funds to hire a full moon!! Yes, if you don?t have a night scope we fixed it for you!

CYMA Thompson AEG Reviewed!

Get it first on Arnies! The first English review of the much-anticipated CYMA Thompson is here!

Here’s a peek at what lies in wait:

… upon picking up the gun, the weight and length of the thing become apparent. It’s a heavy bugger of a gun – but it’s solid as hell, and that is pleasing to me, as I usually find that I have troubles with weedy guns that are too small for my man-hands *cough P90 cough*, and the Thompson is suited more to the larger amongst us. Although the Thompson is as long as an AK, the stock is a lot longer…
