Another new product from MadBull Airsoft:
This is not the first time ECHO1 and MadBull work together but this is the most innovative product from these two companies ever.
Crawler edition barrel’s idea is coming out from ECHO1’s engineer and they decide to transfer this idea to MadBull.
After try-n- error for over a month and making over a hundred prototypes, MadBull and ECHO1 finally find out the best design for Crawler edition barrel.
Normally, if you want to lower down your AEG power, you have to break down your gearbox and change a lot of internal components.
Crawler edition barrel is the best solution for Airsoft player to reduce velocity and power of their AEG to comply regulations.
More detail will be provided in 10-14 days.
Patent pending! MadBull Airsoft
Here’s one for collectors and historians:
Dear friends and collectors, after many years of hard work, my book "Deutsche Fertigungskennzeichen bis 1945" about the German manufacturers codes of WW2 is now finished.
The book has more than 500 pages, is sorted in two ways (after codes and after company-names), contains ALL code systems (abbreviations, number-codes, letter-codes, LDO-numbers for medals & insignias and the RZM-numbers for NSDAP- & SS-equipment). The official list with letter codes ends with "ozz", but I was able to add three pages of later codes.
And the best fact: The foreword and the text is written in German and English!
The part with the codes is not translated, because there is not much to translate. But I have forced the publisher to print the text in English language too. I think it’s very important to know the background and the development of the code systems. I have found many original documents in archives to reproduce the way of the development step by step.
There will be no commercial distribution to dealers outside Germany, so if someone might be interested, I can only send books from me.
If someone is interested, the price is 35,- EUR in Europe incl. postage.
To the US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and Japan it’s 63 USD for a single book by airmail incl. postage.
I have attached some pics!
With best wishes from Germany

Airsoft Soldier have had a sneek peak at Real Sword’s SVD:
Here’s a snippet:
Our office just received a shipment in the form of a long box, and it certainly did not contain wooden sticks for our gardening hobby, which we were also expecting. The box in question revealed an airsoft version of the SVD (Snayperskaya Vintovka Dragunova), produced by Real Sword from Hong Kong.
We have been waiting for this release for some time now. In fact for over two decades there has been a “Dragunov-vacuum” in the airsoft market, and filling the vacuum has been attempted with spring-operated models, beautiful replicas with poor performance and reliability, as well as functional but aesthetically awful conversions based on electric AK models. The time of self-deception is over.
