Here is the latest news from The Range:
Starting on the 4th of Sept 2011 (Sunday) we will be starting ‘Tactical Target Sundays’.
This an IPSC / Practical pistol type event which has multiple targets and requires movement and weapon manipulation.
We will be setting 2 stages per Sunday and each Sunday will practice a different skill set (eg. Pistol drawing and target acquisition, low light shooting, rifle to pistol transitions, etc…)
There will be only 5-6 spaces available per Sunday so that each attendee can spend quality time while running the stages. So don’t hesitate and book your space now.
More details can be found on here and also on our facebook page.
Hope to see you down at The Range!
Product of the Week:
Universal Pistol Scope Mount
This mount allows you to mount a reflex red dot scope onto most railed pistols for pin point pistol accuracy!
Happy Shooting! Paul & Benny @ The Range
TacLight have sent over details of the new Klarus XT20 flashlight they have in stock:
Klarus XT20, 1200 Lumen Flashlight at TacLight
The ultra powerful KLARUS XT20 flashlight is now out and available at TacLight.co.uk. Using two CREE XM-L LEDs, the dual-head XT20 punches out 1200 lumens of intense light over a long distance. It basically lights-up everything.
The XT20 uses the same ingenious dual-button tail switch as the smaller XT10, giving instant access to strobe even when the flashlight is off. This makes it ideal for gaining a tactical advantage in an airsoft CQB situation. Imagine strobing 1200 lumens of intense light at your opponent, with two high power XM-L LEDs.
To use as an uber powerful weapon light just attach a KLARUS ED10 remote switch and a 1-inch mount. Light ‘em up!
KLARUS XT20: £119.95 (including free UK delivery and batteries)
Available at TacLight (www.taclight.co.uk)

The FA556MG adds only 5" to the original length of the weapon platform. Although originally designed for machineg guns, the FA556MG woud look great on any M4, G36, M16, and other rifles.

- Airsoft Evike.com- The Polar Star PR-15 (Fusion Engine Gearbox) Official Review
To see the gun firing see our video back in April, 2011.
You can find all three models available here:
PolarStar PR-15 Carbine Electro-Pneumatic Airsoft Rifle
The PolarStar PR-15 EPAR (Electro-Pneumatic Airsoft Rifle) takes advantage of the revolutionary Fusion Engine. This completely original design by PolarStar Airsoft allows you to have the first gun in the history of Airsoft that can be completely adjusted on the spot via the onboard computer. Not only can you adjust your FPS, but also your Rate of Fire, Firing Mode, Nozzle Dwell (for BB feed fine tuning), and more.
The Fusion Engine takes place of the AEG Gearbox as a direct drop-in. It is powered via a High Pressure Air (HPA) setup and only requires a small battery (7.4v-9.6v NiMH or Lipo recommended) to power the onboard computer known as the Fire Control Unit (FCU).
The Fusion Engine is completely adjustable via the FCU and by varying the pressure from the HPA system (90-120 PSI). The gun comes equipped with PolarStar’s Blue Nozzle (355-405 FPS on the Carbine). Optional Color-coded nozzles are available to be able to move the Maximum FPS Range up or down.
The PR-15 uses an AEG style Hopup and Inner Barrel design allowing the use of standard upgrade parts. Another great thing about the PR-15 and Fusion Engine is that stripped gears, blown motors, fried batteries, and just about every other problem with AEG’s no longer exist Say goodbye to hundreds of dollars and countless hours fixing your gun!
HPA system not included, but will be available soon right here at Evike.com!

- Kids Shoot Bee Hive with Airsoft Guns
Found this bee hive in my backyard one day, and me and my brother decide to shoot the crap out of it. Its not a nest, its just bees stacked on top of each other so we aren’t really destroying their home so don’t get pissed at us. The airsoft guns used in this video were the KWA MP9 and the VFC M4.
Tom has sent over a new video to accompany the images of the HK45 he added to his Pyramyd Airsoft Blog last week:
I have some in-depth video footage of with couple of the new KWA prototype guns including the KWA HK45 gas blowback pistol. For those that missed the update, I posted some photos of the HK45 up on the Pyramyd Airsoft Blog last week. Also featured in the video is the impressive new RM4A1 Electric Recoil Gun (ERG), plus a brief update on the KWA Magpul Edition M4 gas blowback rifle.
Also, I posted my After-Action Report for the Association of Competitive Airsoft Expo that went down on Saturday of this past weekend at the Insight Interactive Airsoft CQB Arena in Rancho Cucamonga, California. It was an all-day event with lots of vendors and featured a force-on-force tournament of six, five-man teams. I was a part of Team 5.11 Tactical, which placed 3rd overall in the tournament, therefore we got to take some hardware home, which is always nice.
Operation End War 2 is a realistically run event by RAP4 that uses their magazine fed markers. It might not be something all dedicated airsofters will enjoy but I’m sure some definitely would:
It is a chance for all airsofters to try out a different Scenario Battle without having to bring their own marker. We supply the Rental T68 for them for the weekend. All the former military and law enforcement are really digging this new style of play and the adrenaline rush they miss. I would certainly like to open up this event to all the airsofters to come out and try this new format. Check out the video link from last year.
RAP4 is proud to offer you great deals for a great adventure: free rental of a T68 Gen7 magazine-fed marker with three magazines at Operation: End War this October 1st-2nd at TAG Paintball in Hollister, CA! If you still haven’t tried magazine-fed paintball, this is your opportunity to see what it’s all about as you play among hundreds of other players exclusively using mag-fed markers. Discover how ditching that hopper opens up your field of vision; how switching to detachable magazines enhances the aesthetics of your mil-sim setup and adds a whole new dimension to your game; how playing with realistic amounts of paint per magazine changes the whole way you think about shooting and moving.
Discover how mag-fed paintball is revolutionizing mil-sim games…and have that adventure for free with RAP4’s awesome free rental package!
All players with paid entry will qualify for free rental of a T68 Gen7 and three magazines, to use both days of Operation: End War 2. If you already have a mag-fed marker…bring it! And for those who know what this revolution in tactical gaming is all about, here are two great deals to get you into this great adventure: 50% off a Tacamo mag-fed body kit for your Tippmann, US Army, or other tactical marker, and 50% off of an Operation: End War 2 Tactical Package of T68 Gen7 and magazines…with paid entry to the event.
With Viper Paintball running the scenario according to their proprietary game scoring system and tactical format, Operation: End War 2 is going to be a blockbuster event. Host field TAG Paintball is opening up their very best fields to accommodate the teams, and RAP4 will be on hand with your rental package, new body conversion kit or tactical package.
