Cybergun FNH FNX-45 Tactical GBB Pistol

design

Here is my latest review, on one of the best gas blow back pistols I’ve ever used:

I must confess, I have not used a side arm for about 10 months now. The reason behind this is because I wasn’t finding in the market a gun that would make want to have one. Especially most of the games I have been playing during the last 8-9 months were in woodlands where you usually can manage without a sidearm.

However, recently I started going to some more CQB sites, such as Blitz CQB (which I reviewed here) and started to feel the need to have a gun for more close quarter situations. Or when I’m using my DMR, the Ares M110 SASS.

The trigger moment happened when I saw the recent release of the FNX-45 by Cybergun. I knew I had to have that gun!

Specna Arms SA-V04 KeyMod 9” Carbine

receiver

Specna Arms hasn’t been in the market for long, but it’s a brand that is quickly turning a lot of heads, especially when it comes to its quick spring change system to popular M4 AEGs. But apart from this I didn’t know much more about this brand and the quality of their products.

When it comes to price, it’s a surprise to see full metal M4s at the price point that Gunfire have them of around £186/€244. Especially when you throw in the quick spring change system, it provides good value.

It kind of makes me wonder: did Specna Arms cut any corners to be able to be this competitive? Is the quality of the replica out of the box any good? And performance wise, at that price I’m sure there needs some improvements.

So let’s see how my experience with my first ever Specna Arms was!

JJ Airsoft XPS 3-2 & XPS 2-Z Red Dot Sights Review

jjairsoft_eotech_xps_review_02

Recently I received the JJ Airsoft XPS Red dot sight in two very similar versions, but with very distinctive features: the XPS 3-2 and the XPS 2-Z. I had reviewed EOTech style sights in the past from different brands and even JJ Airsoft, and most were quite a mix where usually the lenses were so tinted you couldn’t see much when indoors, or you would get to much reflection.

Also, the construction quality is a also a known issue with many clones, which flood the market giving a bad reputation even for the best EOTech replicas.

With so many EOTech clones choice in market right, how will a manufacturer make a difference? Well, the answer is in the quality of build and materials and also in widening the number of offerings.

JJ Airsoft is trying to do just that, but exactly how does that make it stand out from the crowd and benefit us? And just how good are these XPS holosights?

To find out more, just keep on reading.

MadBull Airsoft Gen2 Gemtech G5 Tracer Unit Review

design

A good suppressor doesn’t need to be just an aesthetic improvement to your AEG. Thanks to MadBull Airsoft and the Gemtech G5, which is a replica of the actual G5 from Gemtech, it is just that kind of replica suppressor that actually does more than just make you gun look nice and tactical.

This mock suppressor also has a tracer ability which is one of most fun things to do with an Airsoft gun!

When you add the tracer ability to a suppressor It can be very useful to run on night games since you actually see where you’re shooting, and tis also applies to indoor CQB games.

So let’s see how easy it is to use and run on a standard M4 AEG, and also how well built it is.

BOLT M16A4 BRSS Heavy Recoil AEG Review

bolt_m16a4_brss_heavy_review

I recently had the opportunity to review the new Bolt BRSS Heavy recoil and I can tell you it was even better than my expectations in terms of recoil:

Technology keeps on improving and Airsoft also keeps on moving forward thanks to innovative and bold manufacturers such as Bolt Airsoft. Of course that Bolt is not the only brand in the market when it comes to electric recoil. And I’ve heard many say that the likes of Magpul and Tokyo Marui have a slightly better recoil experience.

However, having tried myself the latter I was sure that wasn’t the case, and now with the new BRSS it would be interesting to see if Bolt Airsoft were actually able to improve on what was already quite good, and make it the uncontested market leader in this segment.

So without further ado let’s start going through the new Bolt BRSS Heavy Recoil.

5.11 Tactical Reactor Full Zip Hoodie Review

511_reactor_review

Now that winter is coming and we need to wear more layers in order to get keep warm, it’s important to choose the right gear. The thinking behind me wanting to get the 5.11 Reactor Hoodie was that I was looking more at how could I keep the tacticoolness not just during the game, but also outside the venues and sites I play.

So I was looking to get a piece of garment that I could use inconspicuously even when walking around London without being stopped or flagged because I was using some a uniform or something that is far from normal “civilian” clothes.

Review: ForceCore Armament FC-109 M4 AEG

fc109_review

ForceCore is, to me and many Airsofters out there, a new name and a new player in the market. One of my latest reviews was a first for me, not just in terms of the brand itself but also in terms of an AEG which I had never seen or used before: the Spectre SMG.

So it was not so easy to gauge the actual quality of this brand (although the quality of the Spectre is seemingly good) since I had no other references.

Now with the AR15/M4 platform, things are a bit different since I consider myself not an expert, but someone who has owned enough M4s for long enough to be able to form an opinion on the subject!

So things are a bit clearer when looking at the FC-109 M4 AEG from Gunfire and it’s really interesting to find out how ForceCore is becoming more and more a brand to keep an eye on!

Review: Sightmark Lopro Green Laser Designator

A4

Lasers in Airsoft are always seen as non-essential and sometimes people fear them. If well-used, and used in the right circumstances and the right laser, it can even be very helpful for your gameplay. Usually most commercial grade lasers are allowed on Airsoft sites with the exception of blue lasers which usually have a far more powerful output.

In case you’re wondering what are considered “safe” lasers, most lasers with 5nW of power or under are safe. Of course the more under the 5nW you go the weaker the light will be and the harder it will be to see in a well-lit environment, including dimly lit environments.

Most Airsoft lasers you see lying around on eBay are way under 5nW, which makes them quite safe. However, most are rendered almost useless for Airsoft since the laser beam is so underpowered that in most medium to well-lit situations you’ll have a hard time seeing the laser, and sometimes even at close range!

So you want to go all the way to that limit and still maintain the level of safety where your opponents don’t need to wear laser safety glasses!

According to the FDA, with a 5nW laser, the reflexive blink of the eye will be enough to prevent any serious damage from these lasers. This usually causes temporary flash or blindness, but can injure the eye if you stare without blinking.

ForceCore Industries Spectre SMG AEG

fc_spectre_smg_review

Looking for something completely different? The Spectre M4, although bearing the “M4” in its designation has nothing to do with the M4 platform. In fact it couldn’t be further from the latter. This Italian made sub machine gun has a very unique look to it thanks to its compactness and pistol like design.

The real steel version or should I say versions, since there are several, has a polymer body and stamped steel receiver, and in some cases a folding stock or a suppressor.

The Spectre was of course design specifically for CQB engagements and the Airsoft version is of course, no different since due to its technical characteristics is really not advisable to use it anywhere else rather than in a close quarter scenarios and so you can have some real fun with it!

Magpul ACS-Style Airsoft Carbine Stock Review

s8

I was on the market for a stock that would replace my good old Magpul CTR stock and wanted something a bit more in line with the DMR-ish style I wanted to give to my Dytac AEG (stay sharp for the full review very soon on this website!). Looking and researching the Airsoft market, I had a few considerations in mind since I was after a low cost stock that would not sacrifice on the quality and the looks. So something that would be reasonably priced, good-looking and durable.

I guess the above isn’t easy to come by in just one Airsoft product, so let’s see if my choice was the right one.
