  • FirstSpear Flotation Cummerbund in Action
    Here you can see an operator who has been forced to abandon ship and finds himself in deep water. He would be weighed down by his armor and equipment and if it weren’t for the FirstSpear flotation integrated into his armor’s cummerbund he might well drown. However, once it is activated he comes to the surface and can not only survive but return fire if needed.

  • "Remington 700: $700 for 700 yds" by Nutnfancy
    There are many outstanding precision tactical bolt guns. Very few however will cost you $700 or less. Here’s two. Welcome to the detailed Nutnfancy tabletop discussion on the Remington 700 AAC and SPS models. With hundreds of rounds fired at both range and long range engagements there’s plenty of data to share. First is the value equation. Some compromises have been made at this price point and there’s no avoiding it. The plastic stock on the SPS for instance is not free floated, lacks aluminum or pillar bedding, and does not offer the ultimate rigidity of a McMillan of HS-Precison Kevlar/Fiberglass option. The bottom metal is reminiscent of pot metal and of course does not meet military specification of steel manufacture (thank heavens). But at their heart, the AAC and SPS models are true to the proven Remington 700 heritage; one I myself have grown up with. A very strong receiver, big locking lugs, and a forged button rifled barrel (of perfect tactical contour for sustained firing) are hallmarks of this American made rifle. Secondly, accuracy did not disappoint. It is discussed and shown in depth with a variey of loads. 1 MOA is possible, even with these plastic stocks. Ergonomics are excellent in the 700 line: smooth operating bolt, perfectly postioned and positive safety, comfortable stocks (the green Hogue on the AAC is especially quite and comfortable), effective Supercell recoil pads, easy to dump floorplate, excellent and adjustable X Mark Pro trigger and an adequately size bolt knob. Shooting these guns was fun and rewarding…mostly. Reliablity was good but definitely not flawless. Several hang-ups in magazine feeding were experienced and ejection was anemic on several occasions. Keep the ejector and extractor clean free from brass shavings and carefully ensure all rounds are rearward pushed upon mag loading. Also methodical bolt manipulation on these 700s helps avoid hang-ups. The AAC version with its 20" threaded barrel is ready for either can or compensator and it is a very portable choice. It excelled in RunNGun action. For ultimate long range precision, I prefer the 26" barrel on the SPS gaining whatever velocity possible on the .308 chambering. This is a gun that can range out to 700 yards in the .308 caliber, perhaps even to 1000 with careful loads, practice, and shooting. Do analyze your POUs carefully as you may be better served by a good albeit more complex and usually heavier SAPR (discussed). Value on both models is excellent and Remington has outstanding service if there’s problems. Competitive options at this price will include the also excellent Savage line up which offers the same value but is usually much heavier. The Remington 700 AAC and SPS are my current favorite tactical offerings in the Remington value line up. The major sacrifice here against a 700P or XCR Tactical offerings is the plastic stock. But again in real world shooting it did not seem to handicap these rifles and they lighten the carry weights substantially. You then can score a very accurate American made sustained fire bolt gun for around $600 ($700 for AAC version) that can keep up with many other more expensive guns./////////////////////////////Nutnfancy Likability Scale for both: 8 out of 10 (with more postive ejection and reliability, 10 out of 10)
  • "Nutnfancy’s Answer to Mk 12 Mod 1: Concept SPR"
    The SPR Concept has validity. A lightweight 5.56mm 18" barreled precision AR-15 or M16 variant rifle will offer somewhat improved ballistics, more lethality, and perhaps better precision. Most identify with the SPR as the US Army or US Navy Crane produced Mark 12 SPR in its various iterations. "Concept SPR" begins with an interesting discussion on the Special Purpose AR-15/M16 Rifle and its application, delineating fact from fiction on the SPR. Special emphasis is placed on the limitations of the .223/5.56mm cartridge in long range engagements. I concentrate my efforts and build is in Real World Application of the Special Purpose Rifle; gladly abandoning any attempt to duplicate a Mk 12 in the process. I am not in agreement with several of the component choices of the Mk 12 based on both cost and ergonomic considerations. Moreover I remain a non-worshiper of military adoptions realizing the innovative and unconstrained civilian market is superior in almost all respects. Instead I look to lightness, accuracy, durability, and top shelf ergonomics in the modifications of this rifle. This version of a TNP SPR, built on the Sabre Defense SPR #90116 model, achieves all of that as shown and weighs in at 6 lbs 14 oz with BUIS. This below most other 16" barreled AR-15 carbines. Components are shown and discussed in detail and its two years of shooting performance in TNP is the foundation of the review. Some will spend extraordinary levels of money to replicate a military Mk 12 Mod 0 or 1. I consider this a fool’s errand unless the individual throws out the Second Kind of Cool flag (criticisms off limits then). You’d be better off to focus your build along this concepts shown here. In terms of capabilities and ergonomics, this super lightweight, fast, reliable, and accurate SPR meets and/or surpasses the vaunted Mk 12.//////////////////////////////Nutnfancy Likability Scale on TNP SPR: 10 out of 10

HSA Barrel lockdown kit for AEG in stock at Airlab

Airlab have sent over details of the HunterSeeker Armory barrel lockdown kits they are stocking:

Hi Arnie, First update for a while! There are loads of new products at Airlab, one of which is the Barrel Lockdown Kit for AEGs, made by HunterSeeker Armory:


Improve accuracy and air seal with this innovative kit. Cheap, quick and easy to install, it holds the barrel assembly securely in place – essential if you want an accurate AEG. With almost no tools required, it can usually be installed in under 5 minutes, meaning you don’t need any specialist knowledge to use it.


Included in the kit:

  • 1 x Enhanced Hop Stabilisation Ring

This clever self-adjusting ring fits around the inner barrel and firmly secures it to the hop up unit. This eliminates movement between the hop up unit and barrel, making your hop up more consistent and providing  better accuracy.

  • 1 x Barrel Shim

A precisely contoured wedge which is inserted between the inner and outer barrels, locking the inner barrel in place to prevent it moving within the gun – a major source of inaccuracy. This greatly improves upon the common practice of wrapping the inner barrel with tape.

  • 3 x O-Rings

These are used as spacers at the front of the hop up unit to firmly set it against the gearbox. This improves air seal by allowing the air nozzle to protrude further into the bucking lips, and by preventing the hop up unit from moving at all, better consistency can be achieved.

Barrel Lockdown Kits ordered before 3pm Monday to Friday will be despatched the same day.

Airlab is a UK based online retailer specialising in high quality airsoft upgrade parts.
