Hyperdouraku has reviewed on his blog the BCM MCMR which is made by Vega Force Company (VFC). His whole review is up here. If you missed it BCM refers to Bravo Company Manufacturing and is under license by VFC. Hyperdouraku has been able to have a look at a sample of the 11.5in barrel version prior to the scheduled June release. You can see the translated review here courtesy of Google’s usual facilities.
I’m rather protective of this blog, so it’s rather rare that you’ll see a guest review pop up. Rare, but not unheard of. A guest article has to meet a certain amount of criteria for me, and to even consider handing the reins across to someone else, they have to meet certain benchmarks:
– The reviewer must be knowledgable in the area of that particular review or discussion piece, able to offer an insight that is backed up by attained knowledge.
– The item must be of interest to my audience but also something I have no future plans to buy, or at least didn’t plan to buy before agreeing to the review.
– I have to like and trust the person who’s appearing as a guest reviewer, and the reviewer has to trust me to accurately copy across their review onto my blog..
So before we get into the review itself, who have I entrusted this particular review to? It’s a man that many of you might know, at least a few of you will have met him and others have likely conducted business with him… the reviewer is, Mr Heroshark.ATRG
4UAD have posted a very thorough review of the Marui MWS and the GBB system behind it. Check it out below and like and subscribe if you like there work.
Although it was a late one, the Marui MWS M4 still shakes the market when it first came out. Some people said its very weak, and breaks when you charge 12 kg gas to it, and some people just absolutely loved it and call it the king of GBB. This GBB rifle is filled with quite some performance Myth and Tale and we figured today is gotta be the day we bust this performance Myth wide open!!! with Scientific test obviously~ Be ready for the first Grading System Challenge Ep.1 “Is the Tokyo Marui MWS M4 any good”?4UAD
Anvil Airsoft TV have posted a new video covering a few tests on some recoil rifles.

Flashaholic has posted a YouTube video review of the Nitecore Tini 2. This is an itty bitty light for your keychain (or whatever you fancy attaching it to) with an OLED display, type C USB charging port, 500 lumens output with a dual switch. We could go on and on about lumens as every manufacturer quotes big numbers with differing results, but it is indeed small and very bright.
TaiwanGun have posted a review on YouTube of the CYMA CM045A by AATV.
The reviewed replica can be found at the link: https://bit.ly/3qQyPcg
DESCRIPTION CM.045A is a replica of the AKS74U Russian carbine. The new series of replicas from the series 040, 045, 048 which shows the next quality level among Chinese manufacturers. Body, flash hider, top cover, and the folded stock has been made of steel (bent sheet).
The remaining elements such as the outer barrel, gas block, the base rear sight, and side rail were also made of metal ( ZnAl).
– The hand guard is made of wood
– The pistol grip and magazine is made in nylon.
– The latch of the stock, which is the part exposed to easy breaking, has been made of steel, thanks to which the fault known from DBKi’s RK models has been eliminated.
All parts are mounted on pins like in a real AK. Inside there is a reinforced ver.3 gearbox, steel gears are mounted on reinforced 7mm bearings. The spring guide is reinforced (metal) together with the bearing, which makes the spring work easier – 120m / s spring, giving a shot force of about 410 FPS. Polymer piston has metal teeth and the cylinder – type “1” – was covered with black nickel “SMOKED” on the copper substrate providing perfect smoothness of the surface. A huge advantage is the silent piston and cylinder head set, made of aluminum and covered with a blue anode,the piston head has bearing. The replica has a powerful engine with increased torque equipped with neodymium magnets. The way how gearbox is functioning will surprise a user. The most important think, is that all accessories from other brand are compatible with this model, this influence on the longevity of your replica and on upgrade part and performance.
Set Included: * replica * accumulator stick 8,4V 1200 mAh * charger * magazine hi-cap 525rd
Every replica pass initial check up. It`s being checked and overshooted on XCORTECH X3200 chronograph. The recommended battery with the highest safe voltage for this replica is -11.1V.

Otherwise, the replica may be damaged, which will not be covered by warranty repair! Remember that the warranty covers only replicas in which the spring was not replaced with a stronger one, and no batteries with a higher voltage than recommended were used.TaiwanGun YT Channel

Our friends at 365+ Tactical sent over another item to look at.
With winter approaching and days getting shorter and shorter, many of our outdoor sporting activities are often cut short because of lack of daylight. Luckily, Olight has the illumination game all figured out. Thanks to them, we are able to introduce a new headlamp, designed for the sporty types among us. It’s the super lightweight and compact, Olight HS2.
This is a special breed of headlamp, not previously available. It’s designed for fast-paced activities like running, mountain biking, snowboarding and so on.

Dr Airsoft (Airsoft Medicine) as sent over a new video with a review of several pistols that look a lot like Glocks:
Gas blowback airsoft pistols which resemble real steel Glock pistols are compared in this Airsoft Medicine video with Dr. Airsoft and Rangemaster Larry. The KWA Advanced Training Pistol, the Socom Gear LoneWolf Timberwolf, and the WE G17 are compared. Features compared include muzzle velocity, target grouping, real steel Glock holster fit, magazine loading, interoperability, and cosmetic appearance. This video specifically addresses issues pertinent to Glock shooters using airsoft in their training with real steel gear.
