First & Only is back. We have a NEW site and it’s just down the road from the old one just outside Matlock in the Derbyshire Dales.
Here’s a link so you can see where it is. http://maps.live.com/Default.aspx?wa=wsignin1.0
We are running open days on Saturdays again.. We plan to get some special events running again soon, especially our Vietnam days and WW2, we usually run these on Sundays. The wood is natural, with lots of ground cover and undulating terrain. A good mix of trees, rhodies and ferns. We have started on some objectives and structures around the gaming area. Were currently working on getting a VC inspired bunker complex done. If you want to come down then please book in on the forum http://www.airsoftcommunity.co.uk/forums/index.php?act=SF&f=277 or give me a call on 07976 320288 or email Gucci@Firstandonlyairsoft.com.

What with Tokyo Marui’s G17 being slightly oversized owners of the excellent handgun aren’t able to use real steel options on their weapon. Fortunately PDI through X-Fire is releasing products design specifically for the Tokyo Marui G17.
HI,this is Tomo.
Today, I have an interesting upgrade parts.It’s Tactical Block for TM Glock17.
Detail: Made of Duralmin,CNC all machined(included a lower block).For TM Glock 17.
Alex from Armed Forces Co. (www.armedforces.hk) have been in contact for some info about their products along with Tony from PFI (www.pfi-hk.com) that was also at the store that day promoting his new products.
The AFC custom blow back system is available as a conversion kit or a complete kit in a VFC AK with the fps adjustable to up to 400fps with .20g ammo. They’re currently working on a prototype that has a similar mechanism to be fitted in a systema with removable bolt system just like the real thing so those of you that are waiting for a higher performance armalite GBB, sit tight! There may be one coming that doesn’t require a gas tank to be carried with you during a skirmish.

More info can be found on this thread. Here
Some of you may remember PFI when they released their PFI toy grenade,
they have also released a smoke cap silencer recently that imitates real steel muzzle smoke.
This has already been posted on the forums by Tinkerbell first, here.
It comes in a nice little package as you see in the picture, along with the smoke cap and a molle compatible pouch itself, there are 2 other threaded adaptors, (apart from the 14mm ?ve thread) a 14mm +ve and a 16mm +ve thread as well as a spare set of screws for the adaptors too.

Modify have released some good gearbox related products in the past and now it seems they are taking some serious steps to bring players not only high quality products but now innovative ones as well.
Not only that but Modify has promised us a exclusive review sample to test just how good it is!

You need not to adjust it with shims. It includes:
1) Modular Gear Set, 1set
2) Tempered Stainless Bushes w/ Double Oil Tank, 6pcs

Ceramic balls are over 100% harder than steel balls. In a hybrid bearing, the extremely hard and smooth Ceramic Ball keeps raceways clear of contaminants by pushing them away from the contact patch. In addition, the ceramic ball remains extremely smooth, preventing ball to race damage. For the end user, this means reduced bearing wear and longer bearing life at high precision.
* Vickers Hardness 10 KG Load: Ceramic = 1550, Steel = 730
Benefits of Ceramic Ball Bearing Attributes:
- Dissimilar Materials (Steel and silicon nitride)
- Less Wear
- Lower Operating Temperature
- Higher Speed
- Extended Bearing Life
- Lower Friction
- Lower Vibration
Thank you and have a good day!

We have just received an e-mail from Pacific Concepts/Ravenwood Tactical about an excellent product that is going to be a huge hit with members of the community that what to record ingame footage without carrying around fragile and expensive video equipment that runs the huge risk of being damaged durring play.
Pacific Concepts/HBD Inc has been providing innovate solutions to Industry and Law Enforcement agencies for over 37 years. After over a year in R&D, we now have a new product to introduce. We developed this camera in partnership with a major video camera maker. This is the first hardened video camera developed for mounting on a firearm. Waterproof to 10 ft, runs off two AA batteries.
Our R&D was aimed at producing a camera for law enforcement use, mounted directly on the fore end or barrel of a entry gun for SWAT use. As the prototype was displayed, we started receiving new uses from all directions.
Paintball players have shown a huge interest, along with bow hunters, handgun hunters and shotgun hunters.
On the law enforcement side we have had requests for mounts for ATV’s, bike patrols, water bikes, boats and a hand held, waterproof, easy to use camera for boarding boats. The corrections field is using them for video taping cell extractions, deployment of less lethal launchers and riot situations.
The uses seem to be only restricted by your imagination.
Please contact us if you need any more information firstname.lastname@example.org

Hey it’s that time of year again where you guys over in the states celebrate wrecking loads of boxes of perfectly good tea or something. As apparently said by Thomas “the man” Jefferson (to his wife on the 3rd by all accounts):
The second day of July, 1776, will be the most memorable epoch in the history of America. I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated by succeeding generations as the great anniversary festival. It ought to be commemorated as the day of deliverance, by solemn acts of devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires, huge BBQs, humongous hot dogs, and fireworks the size of ICBMs, from one end of this continent to the other, from this time forward forever more.
Alright it wasn’t quite what he said, but it’s close. Enjoy the festivities!
Arriving this week is the EAGERLY AWAITED [U.S. VERSION] Marushin 8mm M500 Gas Shotgun with Ghost Ring Sights!
This awesome metal shotgun was the hit of EVERY SINGLE convention Spartan Imports attended for its realistic look and weight. Everyone from enthusiasts and players to trainers, law enforcement officers, and members of the military could not keep their hands off the Marushin M500!
This special U.S. Version takes HFC22a Super Power Green Gas and fires 3 8mm BBs at a time! The US Version is exclusively distributed by Spartan Imports.
Simon over at MadBull has mailed in an update regarding their KX3:
Here are some tips. You can modify your KX3 to adjust volume and make metal punching sound.
We already add this instruction (attached) onto our website.
Also, we will have more color of KX3. Instead of using “painting,” we use “anodizing.” We will have Multicam (authorized), Tan, Dark OD, and Light Gold very soon.
Best Regards, (Mad Bull Airsoft)
