Yes, that’s a Starship Troopers reference. But ‘do you want to know more’ about the Airsoft Innovations FLAK5 and FLAK10? Handily they have released a video showing off some of the features and teasing us with new accessories and features that will be coming later including custom chokes.
Like gas shotguns? Like Airsoft Innovations? Then good news, there is a new semi auto gas powered boom stick out to play with. The difference between the Flak 5 and 10 is that one fires 5 rounds per shot, the other 10. The video below makes this look like an absolute CQB beast.
Here’s an interesting idea, a grenade shell adapter that takes APS shotgun shells over on Etsy by BlastersBB. they are about 18UKP each and available in various different colours.
This 40mm Grenade Shell allows you to fit a APS 870 Airsoft Shotgun shell with it. It basically converts the APS 870 Airsoft Shotshell for airsoft grenade launcher use. This 40mm Grenade Shell has been tested to be compatible with the following products:
– APS 870 CO2 Airsoft Shotshell
– ICS MGL Full Size Airsoft Revolver Grenade Launcher (ICS-190)
– ICS MGL Full Size Airsoft Revolver Grenade Launcher Gen. 2 (ICS-192)
To use the APS 870 Shotshell with the ICS Grenade Launcher, you will need to replace the M4-0.7x20mm hex screw trigger pin with a M4-0.2x25mm set screw. Screw the set screw into the ICS Grenade Launcher just far enough so that it triggers the APS 870 Shotshell without putting excessive force on it. The set screw is not included, but can be purchased with a grenade shell in this listing.
Airsoft equipment used for illustration of this grenade shell are not included.

Direct from their boss here’s the latest video from APS detailing their CAM3 tested showing range and grouping. Here’s the stats for both 6m and 4.5mm BBs, depending on what your gaming site will allow you to use:
- 7M 9 hits (6mm 0.2g BB)
- 12M 6 hits (6mm 0.2g BB)
- 18M 4 hits (6mm 0.2g BB)
- 12M 24 hits (4.5mm BB)
- 18M 8 hits (4.5mm BB)
APS have launched the poster for their new shotgun licensed from Salient Arms International. Built on their tested M870 gas shell design this features textured stock and front grip which is made to a high detail (much like their DragonFly pistols).
This is as identical as you will get for an Airsoft version of the genuine Salient Arms International Remington 870 12Ga 7 RDS 18.5" Shotgun and includes such detail as the vent rib at the front.
I’ve included a few details shots of the shotgun when I saw it in the flesh myself below:
CRW Airsoft are now accepting pre-orders for the APS CAM870. This uses the “CO2 in the shell” system and the shells are wadded in a very similar way to a real 12ga. It’s due out in March and I look forward to seeing how effective the system is with 6mm and 8mm BBs. It’d be great to see this becoming a viable CQB boom-stick. Obviously you’ll need to buy spare wadding packs and perhaps a shell/brass catcher for this.
If anyone out there knows if this will fall foul of the UK self contained gas cartridge laws do let me know.
With luck some more videos showing off the system will appear on their YouTube channel.
