ECHO1 Minigun video and custom JP rifle

brian There is a video of the upcoming ECHO1 minigun on YouTube now (on Mad Bull Airsoft’s video pages). 400fps of spinning mega BB fun by the looks of it too.

Included (inset) is the technical diagram of Brian and the new Mini Gun. :)

No word on price or more details, but as soon as there’s more on it I’ll post more up:

Gents,

This is one of our most exciting moments! ECHO1 Mini gun.

400 fps. Detail to be released soon!

Video here on YouTube. (ECHO1)

While I’m on the topic of Brian, Mad Bull Airsoft sent over another post a few minutes ago, so rather than start a new post I’ll add it on here:

Friends,

Brian (the crazy guy who played minigun on the previous post) sent me photos about his amazing JP Rifles 308 modification.

This is an example to show what you can do with you JP rifles kits.

ICS Conducting Research in to new models

sac_needs_you Come one, Come all!

ICS recently announced the release of the new SIG 551, the prototype was made in black and several members raised their desire for the replica to be perfect in all aspects including colour. This means ICS would need to change it from black to gray.

What they want to know is, Do you want it Gray or Black!!!

A poll has been set up so cast your votes, please even if the weapon isn’t on your wish list vote as it will help ICS understand what the trends and feelings are in the airsoft community.

SO VOTE NOW!

Gunner Airsoft Release M249 Parts for CA and A&K

 

Just been browsing online retailers based in Hong Kong in preparation for my upcoming trip next week and it seems Gunner Airsoft has got their hands on individual parts for the M249 that are compatible with both the A&K and Classic Army replicas of this weapon.

They currently have the following parts in stock:

What would be great is if they could also release both the MK. I and MK. II fore-grips as well as possibly some RIS/RAS covers as well. But for the prices. Also they now have fake 5.56 belt fed rounds to attach to your M249.

Exclusive Images of the ICS SIG ARMS 551 rifle

P1130535 (Large) Well guys, I finally got permission to release news on the much anticipated ICS SIG 551.

ICS has been working very closely with the SIG team on recreating a perfect replica of the SIG Arms 551 rifle, there are one or two difference between the ICS and the real steel SIG but these have been put in by the SIG team but trust me if you have never seen or used a real steel SIG 551 you won’t know what these little differences are.

So check out all the images here!

Thanks again ICS for allowing Arnie’s Exclusively release this information

MAC10 Performance Update.

Not to be confused, the MAC 10 sports a plastic body on the final product. There has been a small error in the previous news update stating the gun is full-metal which is incorrect.

The body of the gun uses the same ‘blast finished’ coating which is found on the Tokyo Marui’s new series of GBB Pistols and AEP SMGs. The silencer included in the gun has a slight rubber coating for the smooth feel. pdi boc mac

The gun is set at a 45 degree angle in the box to accommodate the silencer, magazine, charger, battery, and other small parts. Roughly the MAC10 as stated  from PDI’s homepage "it is about the size as a WA MINI UZI." 

 

 hopup mac10

The gun’s hop up is a dial type system which is accessible from the gun’s ejection port by simply pulling down on the bolt. This picture shows the MAC10 upper receiver removed to show the hop up dial which located behind the barrel.  What has been done differently is the inner barrel is a short barrel that cannot be visible from the muzzle and has a nickel plate coating instead of the usual brass colored barrel. This is to ensure the realism in Tokyo Marui’s new SMG. The bolt is also designed to lock when turned in a 90 degree action to prevent the ejection port from opening.

Also in news and pictures from Chameleon Japan, (Chameleon Japan) and Military Blog (Military Blog)

  Pictured above is Chameleon’s own custom LIBRA Weapon Pouch. It is like wrap-around holster that uses a fine velcro layer that does not sound loud when you rip the velcro off. It is designed to hold any SMGs and pistols and is strapped on to your Molle vest or web belt. Product information can be found here: Libra Weapon Pouch 

Tokyo_Marui_Compact_AEG_Mac10_017 Comparison between the Tokyo Marui MP7A1 with the Tokyo Marui MAC10 side by side. Not noticeably large, however the MAC 10 does have just as much to offer as the MP7A1.

 

 

 

This is a video made by Chameleon as he shows over the features of the gun. Disclaimer: Video is in Japanese! Nihongo wakarimasen!

Also to add, PDI JAPAN X-FIRE has listed a performance chart comparing the stock inner barrel vs. PDI’s 01 barrel. Currently the MP7A1 barrel is used to test, however later they will test with a longer inner barrel designed with the suppressor.

Velocity Test
Mac10 (normal) / 0.2gBB(Marui)/ Indoor
Average 250.95 ft/sec 、76.51 m/sec、0.59J
Mac10 (01 inner barrel/135mm STD size)/ 0.2gBB(Marui)/ Indoor
Average 259.65 ft/sec 、79.16 m/sec、0.63J
Mac10 (01 inner barrel/242mm Long size)/ 0.2gBB(Marui)/ Indoor
Average 268.40 ft/sec 、81.83 m/sec、0.67J

Much thanks to Chameleon, PDI , and Military Blog.
