Got Wood?

Alpha-Tec Closed?

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

 

Are Alpha-tec still going? Looking at getting an impact and was really interested in the 6 shot reloadable.

 

However everywhere but fire support is out of stock, and their website appears to be gone?

Now that you talk about the TRMR, are the multi shot bases still available somewhere?

Well, it says right there "out of stock"... :P

Flick me, I did not pay attention to the "multishot base" part, just the make, my fault.

Also you might well try "local" (PARLA), if the guy is legit may have stock other than the single grenade announced or a way to get to.

Thanks Commando. Makes it harder to choose between one of the Hex grenades or an Oshiboom now

 

Seen Ohshiboom grenades go off with the pin still in.

 

Took a hard knock to do it, but still. Didn't sit right with me.

Alpha-Tec was owned/run by that Keith (?) guy who's been famous over the years for many failed businesses that have taken peoples' money and run.  I wanna say previous efforts were something to do with PTWs and an engraving business.

If I remember rightly there was a 2nd PTW tech trying to get some of Tack’s business, and I had one job from the Airsoft engraver but that turned out alright so I had no cause for complaint

The HEX grenade was manufactured by Keith for AlphaTec but Alpha Tec was not his business . However the guy from AT vanished and Keith kept manufacturing to fulfil trade orders for a while but then stopped . Keith was also the Airsoft Engraver

There is a new grenade coming on the market soon, aimed at the MIlsim / Training Market.  Not connected to any of the above.

So you can just use a 209, but also use that 209 to set off a bigger charge?  More realistic than anything else I've seen admittedly.  I'd defo stick to my x3 TRMR because it's more practical for skirmishes but this is obviously going for the real world training user.  Or people who think airsoft is pretty much the real thing.

I've tested these and they will be an awesome replacement for Gr20s etc but I would say less so for regular BFG users . I personally would rather not have your average sunday skirmisher throwing them around

You must have missed the TLD GR20 aggressor, that was extremely nice but had the issue of odd charges and primers pressed into brass caps that screwed on (likely due to being pistol primers) which from memory went off the moment the spoon flew off.

It does look like they are still in production so presumably the charges and primers can still be purchased (how easily I have no idea) but the cost per use was a lot higher than Dynatex a BFG, and right there is the issue with any 'FG' without the 'B' when it comes to airsoft, I sold my GR20 before I ever really got chance to use it and bought an oshiboom and a second Dynatex BFG instead since I already had a few boxes of .380 blanks with more readily available from numerous shops.
