  1. It's just a bit strange that no one in the English speaking world has done a review on the "new wave" MP7. I hear a lot of raves on the VFC MP7, which while I am sure is 1:1 and kicks like a mule, it is also significantly lighter. After witnessing the video review by nugentgl and seeing the complexity of the VFC, not to mention the 2 piece (plastic?) inner frame and barrel, I decided that the "new wave" MP7 was a much better engineered beast which deserves a little more exposure. I have owned many^2 airsoft guns in my time, so I will draw upon the experience from the other guns that I have had as well. I am not the person to make pretty pictures or write fluffy sales pitches, so this is a no BS, first impression + technical and performance review. ......................... I saw this thing at the local airsoft store the other day, and I wasn't really gonna get it. Having owned a KSC MP7, KWC Mini UZI, and still own a KSC MP9 and a VFC MP5, I didn't see a point in another SMG/PDW. But the sales guy knows I am curious and tempts me with this relatively internet-obscure gun, took it out of the gun cabinet and let me fire this. One full auto dump at 15*C and I was hooked. It was loud, my ears rang. It had kick, was enough to offset my aim on single hand semi and on auto. It had ROF. It had no drop in ROF. I chronoed this at the store, and it was around 360fps on 0.2gs, for a relatively cold day it wasn't bad at all. After some um and ahhring I parted with my cash. My wife is gonna kill me. Here is the box it comes it. It comes with the sights, rails unmounted. It also comes with a disassembly allen key, a thread adaptor for a 14-ve silencer and a spare stock stopper (not steel). Here is the comparison between the 4 different platforms: KSC MP9 is at 1.8kgs, 5" barrel, 1:1 WE MP7 is at 2.1kgs, 7" barrel, 1:1 VFC MP5 is at 2.5kgs, 8" barrel. 1:1 DE UMP is at 2kgs, 8" barrel Here is front side, its pretty typical plastic from WE, similar to their G36/G39 plastic, with a finer texture. Everything that needs to be metal is metal. Flash hider/barrel/gas block etc. But its typical WE metal; i.e. mixture of zamak and aluminium, with a touch of steel/hardened stuff at most of the high stress places (which I will get to later). Here is the 4 position stock, which is a blessing as the half setting is just right length for CQB but no good with a mask. Here is the mag, rather uninteresting, it is double stacked with an exposed front, similar design to a Marui, but bigger. Here is the front, with the flash hider removed, that notch above the barrel is where we can adjust the hop up. Here is the sights, again, just an MP7 sights but ok in quality and looks the part. Its just not steel. So far, its just a fairly standard MP7, abeit 1:1 in scale, and weight. Now lets take it apart. Pop the take down pins and remove the stock here is the bolt group Its partially hollow on the top, but has all the right bits in the right places. Now to remove the mech, what we need is that allen key and remove the selector and bolt catch: Ok here is the surprise: Casted and milled aluminium mech. No wonder why it is so weighty. Not a 2 piece plastic jobbie like the VFC, and not a million springs fly out (just 3). Its even easier than the KSC/KWA or the Marui MP7 to take apart. Here is the barrel and gas block assembly, note the anti bounce buffer on the gas block. Barrel is rock solid with no wobble or alignment issues: Its aluminum. Secured via two screws at the bottom of the mech, and this disassembles the hop unit also. Now looking at the mechbox here is what interesting, chrome/steel hammers and seers. Its not chrome plated pot metal (more to that later). ................. Function: Now this is where it gets a little interesting - The trigger release on the New Wave MP7 is not the best. Like others in the SMG 8 review have found that its mushy on semi-auto. In fact, I have to pull it all the way back before it will release on semi. Certainty very unsatisfactory and does not bode well with a CQB platform where quick trigger response is required. But with a dremel or a good needle file this can all be fixed. Looking from the right side of the hammer this is what needs to be done to the right side sear contact point (not the left side one as that is for the auto sear/bolt trip). I would dremel that part half way and then slowly file down gradually, testing the trigger release. The optimum result is: On semi, trigger releases @ half pull. On Safe, trigger does not release. On full trigger releases @ 1/4 pull. If you over file: on safe, the gun will fire, and that would really suck, so file gradually after half way. So now, its ready for a proper test. At 8m on .25g its giving a 3cm group, which is fairly decent given its a short barrel rifle, but could be a lot better. But here is what happens at 50m, It shoots straight...straight but high...straight but low...hook left, hook left, hook right.....straight...straight high... What is happening is a classic example of a shoddy designed hop rubber. So I took the barrel assembly apart, unfortunately no pictures... 1) The inner barrel moves ever so slightly around the outer barrel. 2) The hop adjuster is a 2 prong design, has no nub and is hard plastic 3) The hop rubber is the Marui type BUT the alignment tab is at the front rather than at the breech end. If you need to change hop rubber you will need to cut off the tab. 4) The hop rubber has the same issue as the KSC hop rubber, which has a constrictor ring cast'ed inside. BB doesn't drop through the rubber it gets stuck inside the hop rubber. Here is the fix, same as the KSC/KWA NS2 hop mod: 5) The hop adjuster doesn't push down on the hop rubber as it actually hits the barrel instead . Here is the issue, and the fix : I also teflon taped the hop rubber and the barrel, added a sliver of aluminium superglued into the outer barrel as a bushing to prevent the inner barrel movement. I am getting consistent hop trajectory at 50m with .25g, at 340fps on 0.25gs @ 15*C, 1cm grouping at 8m on the stock 7" barrel. Compared with SMG/PDW at a similar class. VFC MP5 with Marui Hop rubber mod, 8" barrel, 340fps on 0.25gs @ 15*C. Kick is there but but not as strong as the MP7. KSC MP9 with Modded KSC hop rubber mod, 5" Barrel, 340 on 0.25gs @ 15*C. Kick is the weakest out of all 3, but ROF is the fastest. Since all 3 have had mods to the hop, the Mp5 is the most accurate at both long and short ranges, but the MP9 is pretty much the same as the MP7, MP7 has an extra 10m more of range than the MP9 but that could be how the hop is currently set. Conclusion:

    GHK AUG First Impressions

    So it seems Im one of the first to get the new GHK baby so I figured I give a small review/impression. 1. Packaging I usually don't bother with it however the packaging wasn't the best. The gun was clearly rocking back and forth in its case, there were small foam pieces everywhere. But the worst part was that the flash hider was damaged: Thankfuly nothing else was damaged but Samoon should put something in the front part to prevent anything similar in the future. The gun and the magazine comes with the usual GHK stuff: speed loader, silicone oil, spare o-rings and pencils. 2. The gun It is very light especially compared to the Hephaestus T21. It also felt more natural to hold and aim. Besides the sling swivels there is nothing to rattle when you shake the gun. Both the metal and polymer parts are well made. The folding grip has a small movement but it is acceptable. The selector switch needs some getting used to as I put it multiple times in a position where it was in neither mode. It is a bit hard to move at first you might over push it. The sight is I belive a 2x scope(it feels stronger than a 1.5x for me), it was not on target for me so you will probably need to adjust it. 3. Disassembly If you have watched one of the videos then you know it's pretty easy to take the gun apart, in fact to adjust the hop up you need to take the entire barrel assembly out: 1. Take out the mag 2. Lock the gun back 3. Push the small lever down 4. Rotate then pull the barrel out. It can be done pretty fast once you know it how to but can still be a PITA when you are adjusting the hop-up. The manual tells you about most thing tough sometimes it's just refers to one of the youtube videos. 4. The magazine For those who were looking forward to convert their M4 magazines with a few extra parts into AUG ones I have bad news. It has it own design. When taking it apart you need to slide the bottom part off first but watch out as it also holds the magazine spring. To push the inside part out you need to pull the small tab on the right side of the magazine away. While the magazine looks like a regular gas magazine it still has the tubes that GHK mags are known for, just this time they are inside a block. No idea how well it would take a CO2 conversion. Compared to the GHK AK or M4 magazines the AUG is much more lighter: only 409g!(with a small amount of gas in it) Inserting the magazine isn't as easy at first. You need to give a good hit after you put it inside to lock it in, once it's in there is absolutly no movement. When you are removing it you can simply push the mag catch button and it stays like that till you take the mag out. 5. Shooting So there was a small problem at first. After shooting around 7 rounds and switched to full auto, I pulled the trigger and nothing happened. The hammer would not drop no matter what. So I took the trigger group out and noticed that the hammer had no tension. The problem was this: The hammer spring somehow came off. Fortunately it was easy to put it back but I noticed that the spring was pretty weak compared to the other GHK guns. However it does work but Im not so sure it would with CO2. Back to shooting: altough I don't have a lot of space at the moment the shooting was satisfying. The recoil is good(better than the T21 on CO2) especially on full-auto and shots were pretty accurate. However it is not skirmish friendly out of the box: This is with hop-up on. And that is it for this time. Will probably won't be able to skirmish it this month as I need more mags and a lower FPS. Also I want a 16" kit with a top rail. If you have questions I try to answer them.

  6. Nemesis Chest Rig from Warrior Assault Systems Construction After what I would regard as an overdue period sticking to 1000D cordura (which put me off the brand for some time) Warrior has finally seen the 500 denier light and this rig was one the very first items they produced to the new lighter, less bulky spec, in-keeping with trends seen throughout the tactical gear industry. After a few years of not picking up any WAS gear I was curious to know if the very high standard of durability in construction and mil-spec materials were still in place and I'm happy to report they are. The cordura, webbing, thread, bungee cord, elastic, polymer hardware, metal grommets, velcro and zip all meet the top-end standard and you'll find just the same materials in this rig as you would in something from Blue Force Gear or Tactical Tailor. WAS stuff is put together in China hence the low prices compared to US made gear, but the materials are all imported from elsewhere (primarily the US) which makes it ideal for the airsofter who wants the maximum possible skirmish outings per £/$/¥/€ spent. Primary Feature The 4 integrated magazine pouches are the flagship element of this chest rig and though it may appear to be a dedicated 5.56 STANAG setup on the face of things, that's actually far from the truth. Options per pouch include the following: 1 or 2 30rnd STANAGs or PMAGs, the pouches are fairly generously proportioned so you won't have to battle with it too much to get the second mag in (will also hold 20 rounders and one Surefire 60 or similar) 1 or 2 AK mags (best suited to 545, probably not ideal for 762x39 due to the curvature more than anything but most should fit) 1 Legacy 7.62 NATO Rifle/SR-25/SCAR-H mag 1 H&K G36 mag Some small/medium radios would also be a possibility along with some kind of EDC style medical kit or a sport sized smoke grenade/other pyro deivce; but you'd struggle with something the size of a military smoke. Each pouch features a bungee retention loop with folded webbing tab for ease of manipulation. The length of these loops can be quickly and easily adjusted to size, all the way from securing two 762x39 AK magazines down to just one 30 rnd STANAG. This is achieved via the cord-loc stashed away inside each individual chest panel; simply adjust the loop to the size you want, set in that size with the cord-loc and the excess bungee is all kept neatly out of the way inside the rig itself. This is a feature you'll not generally find on other chest rigs or shingle pouches out there on the market, more often than not you're left with that bungee just swinging in the breeze and either just have to live with it, or break out something sharp and make a permanent modification. Also Showing To my mind, split front chest rigs are the way to go. I find that being able to shrug on a piece of gear in the same way you do a jacket or coat is infinitely preferable to faffing around getting stuff over your head then tightening it all down. You gain maybe an inch or two of load carriage area in the very front of a a system like this by not having that zip at the 12 o/clock; space which is useful there's no denying. However, are you really making your equipment that much harder to access by shifting everything towards your back by a single inch? Generally, I'd imagine you're not. I've owned numerous variants of this style of chest rig over the past 7 years or so and have been skirmishing them on and off pretty much since I started in airsoft. The Tactical Tailor 2-Piece MAV (and the BULLE MLE that copies it) for example, are both excellent split-front setups in a very similar vein to the Nemesis and both work fantastically well for any sort of gaming when you really only want to carry the small amount of equipment that's actually necessary for Sunday skirmishing; especially as an optional alternative to putting everything on a belt. At the higher end you have various options in this style such as the FirstSpear Split-Front Tubes rig, the Mayflower UW GEN V and the Blue Force Gear SPLITminus all of which enable the sort of quick, hassle free donning and doffing that makes life so much more pleasant during those breaks between games. Airsoft is after all an enjoyable with a fast paced sporting element that doesn't require anyone to suffer the rigours or military service or deployment, anything which makes me that bit more comfortable during a game day (primarily during the breaks) is very much welcome. The Nemesis achieves its' split front functionality in a simple, robust fashion with the minimum of fuss. An extremely chunky YKK zip is mounted upside-down between the two panels and the combination of the large teeth and slider with the inverse mounting makes it super easy to line up and get started every single time, almost zero chance of annoying malfunctions and having to wrestle with this thing when it goes out of kilter on you. The teeth and slider are then covered up by a double flapped closure of velcro and webbing to maximise camouflage, minimise noise and hold down the pull on the slider to prevent it rattling around for all the world to hear. The outer most flap has 2 webbing pull tabs so you're not left to get frustrated while trying to peel up one corner of the velcro in your gloves. There are also elastic loops on the outside of this closure to hold 2 cyalumes, which personally I feel is rather pointless and would've preferred these be omitted since I'd never mount chemical lighting sticks in that position, but that's a really minor niggle and there are a few potential other uses for the elastic such as storage for paracord or other simple survival items. Moving around the sides of the integral mag pouches we have a field of PALS webbing on each panel, measuring 3 columns by 5 rows. These two areas give you plenty of space for any combination of pistol mags/radio pouch/med kit/smoke grenade/GP pouch/40mm etc to fit your personal requirements and supplement the rifle magazines carried up front. This isn't alternately spaced webbing either, so you've got guaranteed solid mounting for pouches of any height, including the less common ones built to be an even number of PALS rows tall. Most companies will shave off some weight (and more importantly, cost) by avoiding solid PALS implementation, so it's particularly nice to see this on such a competitively priced rig. The amount of stitching is almost over the top with bar tacking used very liberally indeed throughout the Nemesis, as seems to be characteristic with Warrior. This construction style does not make for a super light or supple piece of gear, but with a bit of break in it's perfectly comfortable and you'll have to really work on it to cause much in the way of wear or damage. On the inside of each chest panel there is a mesh pocket with a small velcro tab to for closure, handy for safely holding thinner administrative items. Or indeed potentially a place to keep your smart phone and wallet, safe from BB hits; depending on the thickness of those items and how bothered the wearer is about having solid items pressed directly against the body. The Harness All the above is great, but you'll need some kind of strap system to attach it all to your body. Luckily the harness on the Nemesis does a good job of that, with plenty of features built in to it. The harness comes as standard in an H configuration which is good as that is generally the all-round better option, but if you did want to convert back to an X you could remove the crossbar and very easily do so. The primary straps that bear the weight comprise 1.5” webbing (which is a lot stronger than cordura) going over the shoulders and 1” webbing to make the connections around the back between the shoulders straps and the panels themselves. You then have a large amount of padding sewn on to the primary areas at the front and top of the 1.5” webbing, which significantly cushions out the harness. Ideally we'd have seen 3D spacer mesh underneath the padding to increase airflow and moisture wicking, but then of course the price would've increased and on a comparatively small surface area like this the moisture retention issue should be fairly minimal. For communications cable and hydration tube routing there are webbing strips attached perpendicularly to the upper area of the harness straps, as well as cordura panels with velcro on the of each strap to form an enclosure wrap. Each of these has elastic loops protruding from their outer edges to form another channel for potential use. There are also PALS-like webbing points integrated to the front of each routing enclosure, which are ideal for attachment of ITW Grimlocks/Web dominators and PTT devices. Sufficed to say if you have a hydration system and/or comms setup on the back or sides of this chest rig you are extremely well catered for. One would assume that Warrior plan to release specific hydration carriage backpack or rear panel for the Nemesis as it comes with a pair of (currently) superfluous side-release buckles attached to the top of the shoulder straps. There may be some potential for hanging other PALS mounted packs or hydration pouches to these but their positioning is generally not ideal for such a setup. The entire harness features numerous points of adjustment to allow the Nemesis to fit a very wide range of builds, all facilitated via side-release buckles. The lower back strap is rather excessive on hardware with large buckles on both ends which are frankly unnecessary, especially on a split-front rig that does not require this strap to be released for donning. The user sets it in place once, secures the excess webbing strap with the supplied elastic loops and will then not need to touch this strap again unless they perhaps add significant extra clothing or body armour. In Conclusion The Nemesis represents very high durability of construction standards at a budget-mid level price point. As Warrior are historically well known to do, this rig provides value for money by the truck load to the skirmish user and is in many ways the ideal type of LBE for the practical airsoft player. Apologies for the cliché phrasing, but this rig would genuinely make an excellent investment for a player new to the sport as well as continuing to be a very sound choice for long time players. It will not make you look like an SOF operator and will cost you more than a low level 'ACM' rig would. It perhaps won't look as cool as a plate carrier or PALS vest, but it'll be much cooler in terms of massively reduced heat retention; having such a comparatively small footprint is of course very useful for outdoor games in the summer. But if you want something that will last for many years, be comfortable and practical, as well carrying just a basic loadout of magazines comfortably accompanied by a small amount of extra equipment; then do strongly consider the Nemesis.
  7. The video quality will blow you away. Really the best quality I ever seen in an airsoft review. Its a shame that not every kind of review is such a pleasure to watch. And its about some nice scopes too, which is great as airsoft sniping is becoming more and more popular. It is made by a german guy, but the video is thankfully in english. I think you will love this one. Link to the Video
  8. Hey guys, i thought this video might be helpful for everybody who doesn´t know which BBs to buy in the jungle of different brands. As far as I know there hasn´t been such a detailed and professional test of so many brands before. It´s dubbed since the original video is in german but that doesn´t really matter. Hope this might help for the next BB purchase as you can decide which aspect of the different tests matters the most to you. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MH2vDVZzBC4?
  9. My field has been using an evike chrono since we broke our Xcortech within the first week of operation. the Evike chrono worked ok for the fist couple months, but at this point im the only one who can get any reliable readings with it. so i have been asking for a new chrono for almost a year and a half. finally, i was given the task of finding a new chrono after our evike chrono finally stopped giving me readings all together (its second hand, so i dont know how old it actually is). after some research, i chose one of those classic Shooting Chronys. i use to think they cost about $250, i dont know that they did at any time, but they are all going for round $100 now. the specific model i bought was the Archery Master. the archer master model is essentially an indoor orented F-1. the F-1 designates it as a "feet per second" (M-1 is meters per second) model, has no programming features, and the Master verients have the LCD readout detached from the main body of the chrono, attached with a what looks like a phone cable (like smaller Ethernet cable). the Archery Master includes, from what i can tell, a larger diffuser kit to increase the shooting area under the diffusers and the indoor lighting kit. these types of open chronos hate florescent lighting, so if your shooting in a non lit, dimely lit, or flourecent lit area, a lighting kit is essential. i heard you can use basic LED lights attached to the diffusers, but i got the chrono with the kit for $135 shipped. less than buying an F-1 master along with the lighting kit separate. the chrono only came in today, so this is more of a thread to talk about it as i use it. so far, i really like it, but one of the lamps in my lighting kit isnt totally well, more on that later. the chrono went together well and just needs a 9v battery to function. the lighting kit is 2 lamps that require separate power sources and is screwed into the center pieces of the expanded diffuser. the lamps use tubular bulbs (i think they are halogen) that are rated to last 3000 hours according to the box. i was worried about where to buy new bulbs, but at 3000 hours, im not to worried anymore and there is actually information on the bulbs boxes to order new bulbs. after using it for about a half an hour, one of my lamps started to flicker. if i let it run longer than a few minutes now, it starts to smoke. im going to open that one up to figure it out, its probably a loose connection inside, id rather no return it. if its dead, ill just try that LED puck trick. i have chronoed a dozen guns through it so far, including AEGs, gas and CO2 pistols and an SMP. its very accurate and i havnt received any error readings yet. but with the lighting kit, you have to make sure you shoot straight through and under the center of the diffusers where the light from the lamps are. and it reads about half as fast as other airsoft chronos. around 1 shot every 3 seconds. now i must return to work, ill update this over the course of a few days. today i will look at the lamp and tell you guys about that. ill also try just using my phone torch to replace the lamp and see if that works. i expect to chrono another 30 guns today or more, so ill tell you guys how that goes. ill post some pics later.

    VFC MP7A1 Navy GBB

    Hey guys, just a quick video review from me about the new VFC MP7A1 Navy. If you have any questions, feel free to ask. I will be happy to answer any of them. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pqk6oIGXxb4 I have done an accuracy test at the very end of the video. There is also a link to a blowback in the video if you are interested in that. Best regards, Alkany

    KWA TT-33 NS2

    I'm reviewing today the KWA TT-33 Tokarev, which may or may not be officially released and there is virtually no info out about this gun. So I'm here to provide some info! MSRP for this gun is $135. Magazines are around $30 each. Inside The Box The box itself is made of medium strength cardboard with styrofoam encasing the gun and parts. Inside the box, you get: -Gun -Magazine -Hop-up Adjustment Tool -Lube -Small bag of .25 KSC BBs -Paperwork -Manual The gun is held firmly in place in the Styrofoam bed, which has room for a spare magazine (one can be kept in the gun itself) with a spare slot for the usual bits and pieces that come with a new KWA. First Impressions At first glance the TT-33 looks pretty bad***. It has a finish in black that is slightly shiny. The coloring all over the gun is almost exactly the same, a deep black color. The gun is modeled to be exactly the same as the real TT-33, KWA did a great job on it. This gun is very, very light. 1.65 lbs actually, according to KWA. The balance is VERY good. This gun has both an aluminium slide as well as an aluminium frame, which helps aid it's lightness, compared to WE's heavy and clunky pot metal. Metal parts abound, so it is easier to tell you what is made out of plastic. The two grip sides, and the barrel....Yeah, there is a lot of metal. The only wobble in the gun, at all, period, is the magazine. Take the magazine out, and you can shake the gun around and hear nothing. The wobble is very minimal. Close Look The trademarks on the gun are as follows: Magazine Catch side: -O120301499U * KWA (engraved, black) Chamber side: -Manufactured in Taiwan (looks painted on, white) Top: BK989 * 1941 (engraved, black) Grips: -CCCP around a star The * is an actual star on the gun. The gun does not come with a safety, instead using a quirky trigger setup. You have to push from the top and angle slightly downwards, if you just push on the bottom the trigger will not move all the way backward. After some test firing, I got used to it pretty quickly. The KWA comes equipped with fixed sights. Both are very simple, very barebones, but they work. Remember, this gun is from 1941! The gun comes with a plastic outer barrel, mostly to use less wear and work better with the NS2 system. The KWA uses it's usual hop-up on the gun, adjustable with a tool by locking the slide open and putting the tool inside the chamber. Hop-up adjustment is right for less hop, and left for more. The magazine is no frills design. The big thing, it only holds 10+1 rounds. Yes, only ten. You may want to carry a speed loader and extra mags with you. The mag itself holds enough gas for around 25 rounds. Produced completely from metal (except for the rubber gas routing and the loading lip), the KWA magazine is actually rather light. Like most KWA magazines, the follower can be locked at the bottom for easier loading. Unlike the Marui, BBs must be loaded through the feed lips. The KWA comes with an orange tip painted on the barrel, and the barrel extends past the slight, unlike the real TT-33. I'm hoping for an aftermarket slide+barrel kit to come and fix this, along with adding some more trademarks. Shooting Impressions The gun has decent kick, with a good trigger pull and a decent hammer. Overall it's a lot like other KWA offerings. The slide locks reliably, and the action is completely smooth, with no jerkiness at all. When it comes to shooting performance, I found the gun has around 150 foot range, and accuracy up to about 115 feet. Using .25s of course. The accuracy is decent, and the hop works very well, almost on the lines of TM. On airsoftGI and some other websites, they say the gun chronoes at 340-350 FPS. I think this is exaggerated a little bit, and they do use .20s. KWA on the other hand, in their manual, says it's at 280 FPS. I suspect they used .25s and 134a gas for this chrono reading. I think the gun rests at about 310-330 with .20s and green gas/propane. Take Down I do not know how the real TT-33 takes down, but this is how the KWA version does. 1. Remove magazine, make sure there are no BBs chambered in the gun. 2. On the chamber side, grab the little straight line thing and pull on the tab, freeing the pin that is to the front of the gun. 3. Push the pin and pull the slide lock out of the gun. 4. Pull the slide off of the gun. 5. Push the spring guide forward, then let it come out of the gun. It is a two peice + spring affair, it does stay together though. 6. Spin the front part of the slide upwards. Pull it off. 7. Pull the barrel through the front of the slide. After you do that, you should be here. The gun comes stock lubed, and KWA also includes lube with the gun when that stuff wears off. Conclusion Overall, I think the gun is a great new offering to those who like older guns, or eastern euro guns. It's a great replica and I'll be happy to skirmish with it. Even though it only has 10 rounds, it's performance is very good and I can't wait to give you guys a skirmish report next time I go play. Happy airsofting!
