After my recent review of the King Arms TROY A3 CQC King Arms has announced the second release in the TROY series. This time the MRF CX Rifle. Also King Arms has announced the release of some other interest items.
Last time I presented you guys the M4 sniper rifle and I received lots of positive comments on it. Thank you very much for you all your support. This time we have a few more new stuffs coming and I wish you guys will like it too. As usual, let me know if you have any question or if you have any request. Let’s see what we have to offer…
This is the second version of the Troy M4 series, the Troy MRF CX AEG. Just like the Troy CQB Compact, it is also a full metal AEG. It comes with a 10” Free Floating Rail system, a 10.5” one piece outer barrel and 300 rounds magazine. Now you have more space on the rail to hang all your gadgets.
This is a pretty unique grip on the airsoft market now. The special design give you a better grip and it has 2 infixed metal screw nuts build in to help to hold the motor base cover firmly. There are 2 versions for different hand sizes and 3 colors to choose from.
This is again a unique product and I do like it a lot personally. The 3X Tactical Scope. Well, you can see that it is a 1-3 X scopes by its name. It fits on 20mm rail perfectly and it has 10 brightness levels for different environments. Not to mention how cool it looks and how well it’s finishing is. Our order is arriving soon and we are taking pre-order now. Only small quantity is available so I suggest you to place your order right after you finished reading this email.

Tokyo Marui has just announced that their successful AEP H&K USP (Gun Only Set) is going to be released on 1/21/2008. Previously Tokyo Marui has made the AEP M93R and G18C as both, a Full-Set with a battery and a charger and a Gun-Only set without any batteries or charger at a reduced price. The AEP USP Full-Set is available on the market as well.
For those who do not know about the AEP series, Tokyo Marui has made the compact electric gearbox pistol, known as the AEP. An AEP does not offer any blowback, however gives the user great accuracy for a close range weapon. The AEP series also boasts a hi-capacity magazine (30 Rounds and Optional 100 Rounds Magazine) and full-auto fire. All AEP series can be customized with a silencer, scope, flashlight, and battery options. This is the ideal back up weapon for people wanting a gun that can be used in all weather and requires no gas. *(In Winter, gas guns do not work well at cold temperature and the AEP is the solution to this.)
The AEP H&K USP only comes with the gun and instruction manuals. Battery and Charger is sold separately. Price is 13,800 YEN.
Left is the Box and gun in the gun-only set. Right pictured, is the accessories that can be bought for the gun.

New from Laylax, Japan is the Tokyo Marui Detonics Reoil Spring Guide and Recoil Spring Set!
This Spring guide set is made of SUS and has a teflon coated shaft for ensured smooth operation of the gun. Previous problems involved the Detonics to lock/stick when fired and was the result of the spring guide. The spring guide also has a bearing in the shaft to allow the spring to compress and twist more efficiently.
Price is set to 3,800 YEN

The year has just begun and I’ve been working hard trying to get these reviews finished in time. My first review of 2008 is on the new CQC release by King Arms. This model is based on TROY ind.

Also the model features the new M4/M16 receiver sets which have some amazing features not to be missed!
So head on in to the forums and read the full review here.

Paul at EBTactical (Ebay Prohibited) has just sent me images of a new product coming out of China within the next 3 or 4 days and has sent me images.
Not only that but Paul will also be stocking the infamous RPG that is pretty much used by every third world army and is certainly on my wish list for my Terrorist/Militant load out!
Mark at King Arms has sent us some very interest news about the new range of rifles they are releasing. These feature the free floating heavy sniper barrels!
Thank you very much for all of your support for the King Arms first M4 AEG, lots of people has already received the AEG and they all like it a lot. Now we offer you second edition of the M4, which is the Free Float Sniper Rifle. There are 2 versions, one is equipped with normal barrel, and the other one with heavy barrel. There are also three lengths to choose from, 16”, 20”, and 24”, making it total six different AEG. Once again, price is very attractive. Let me know if you have any question, later boys and gals!
Now last year I announced that ICS would be releasing the L85A2 and many players and members of Arnie’s posted or pm’ed me asking if they would possibly be making the L86.
Well I now have evidence that ICS is indeed going to release the L86 LSW and not only that but also release the front end as a separate kit for owners of the ICS L85A2 who want to switch the front ends over.
Right now there no other details on this but any further news or images will be posted in the forums here.

As promised, PDI X-Fire Japan has announced the Tokyo Marui MAC10 Short RIS Kit with a short silencer included. The RIS is the standard Patriot series RIS and four small rails can be attached on to each side of the RIS. A grip, laser, light, scope, or grenade launcher can now be added successfully on to the MAC10.
Also, users who might have suspected the original silencer is too large and cumbersome will be rewarded with the shorter silencer that is included also with the RIS KIT. The silencer is manufactured in SUS304 Stainless with the punching metal procedure that is also found in many automobile, aircraft, and ship manufacturers. It is very good for sound proofing and to reduce vibration in the material. The silencer is now short and compact while maintaining it’s purpose and function in CQB combat.
The unit is on a special reduced price (10,000yen), however in a few days the sale is over. The Kit will not consist of Rails. Extra Rails must be purchased separately.
More information can be found on the MAC 10 RIS KIT page at X-Fire PDI-MAC10 KIT.
Troy Kim has sent in shots of their M240 kit:
Dear Arnies. How are you?
Comparing with M240, it looks more combative. And now it is available to get it.
Thanks a lot. My best regards. Troy Kim (2roy Tactical)
Radar, (OPSEC Airsoft Radio) has sent in the latest news from the guys there and there’s quite a bit:

**AEG Raffle / Fund Raiser**
So you already know that OPSEC is 100% listener supported right? We have no sponsors or investors to pay the bills, so it’s down to either the listener’s donations or the staff to cough up the dough needed to keep us afloat. The good news is that the books for 2007 are closed and we did far better in ‘07 and in ‘06.The bad news is that we are still in the red. To get in the black for ‘08, we’re holding a fund raising raffle, giving you the chance to win an AEG for only $3. The prize: an ECHO 1 Vector Arms AK CMP. The winner will be drawn LIVE on the air during the birthday broadcast. You can enter as many times as you like to increase your chances… in fact.. we encourage multiple entries (yea, I know.. that was shameless). Head on over to the raffle page for more details and photos of the goods.
