Mouth guards in Airsoft

sd3

 

So are mouth guards any good for Airsoft??

I have been thinking about putting this to test as I wanted a type of protection that would make feel protected from ever breaking a tooth, but at the same time I didn’t want to use a half face mask of any sort as from my experience they either fog up your protection eye-wear or if you go with the mesh masks, it becomes less comfortable and easy to aim down your sights and rest your cheek on the stock. Which also makes you have to train differently and position/adjust your sights with a different setup since your eyes wont be at the same level and angle when you’re using the mask.

So I did a bit of research and found some Doctor Shock mouth guards from Sport Direct, I was looking for the double mouth guard version but since it was Friday and I had an Airsoft game next Saturday I had to go to the Shock Doctor Gel Max Mouth Guard, which only provide protection to the upper teeth.

Although Airsoft is a quite safe sport/hobbie to practice accidents can easily happen at any time and in any type of situation, beacause of that a good First Aid Kit should always be a part of Airsoft gear.

SPEED Airsoft Releases Tool for APS-2 Cylinder

Published on September 23, 2012 by in News, Tips

If you don’t know SPEED Airsoft from their high performance upgrades and high quality tools, then you should definitely check them out!

Recently they have launched a Tool for APS-2 Cylinders that allows the owner or technical staff to easily take off the nozzle from the cylinder since one of the main concerns is the fact that the brass nozzle used on the APS-2 cylinder can be easily damaged during removal due to the thin flats that most wrenches cannot get a firm grip and the pressure against the nozzle from the spring within the cylinder.

This tool is compatible with APS-2 sniper rifles that include UTG, Classic Army M24 and Maruzen.

I would also recommend you to visit their site and find out more about other very useful tools for Airsofter such as the SPEED Delta Ring Wrench, or the SPEED M4/M16 Tool.

Tips: More trigger problems…

Published on June 3, 2012 by in News, Tips

 

I was a off-line today since I spent most of the time repairing a used AEG:

Recently I got a second hand G36K with na SRC gearbox and Classic Army body.

All was fine until it stopped shooting altogether.

Did the normal troubleshooting: battery, motor, checked for jammed bb’s, nothing.

Then I removed the gearbox and noticed it would work just fine out of CA body. But when I put it back together it wouldn’t work at all.

I then I opened up the gearbox and noticed that the trigger had a longer play than the CA body would allow. So the trigger was being stopped by the body rather than going all the way.

But something must have had happened since it was working fine. What I did to make it work again was getting the  trigger contacts close together with the help of some pliers.

Once I closed the gearbox and assembled it on the body it would fire again. Like this I avoided having to cut the body near the trigger to allow enough play for the contacts to touch. Its not a definitive solution but it will work for now

Bottom line is you have to be carefull when upgrading you AEG, the previous owner upgraded his CA by replacing the original gearbox with an SRC gearbox, however the components might need some fiddling in order to get everything working correctly.

Airsoft Maps for Europe and the US

Published on May 14, 2012 by in News, Tips

Have you recently moved to new city or country? Want to find out about local Airsoft fields, teams and stores?

Perhaps just going to vacation to a foreign country and want to learn where you can play Airsoft there?

There are mainly two great on-line sources for this type of information: Aribana Airsoft Maps and Airsoft Maps Europe.

While Airsoft Maps Europe only covers the European Continent, it has a lot of entries all over Europe that detail teams, stores and events.

You can also easily add your own team and country information if you want to.

Then for US and Canada there’s Aribana Airsoft Maps (though they also have Europe maps).

Here you can see retailers near you, skirmish sites and events. You can also create your own maps, but you cannot add your team and view other teams.

These maps are a great place to start if your new to Airsoft or to the area your at, so I highly recommend you to visit these sites and add your own information to make yourself and your team or store more visible to others!
