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!

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!

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!

ARES M110 SASS DMR Review

 

ares_m110_sass_review

The time has come for me to try out the DMR, or the designated marksman rifle role. And just why did I choose this role over perhaps the sniper role? Basically because the DMR role sits somewhere between having an assault rifle and having a sniper rifle, only with a few very nice perks!

Review: Electro River Lithium Polymer Batteries

R4

Lipo’s can be so much fun! But you have to take good care of them:

Lipo batteries can be very nice, especially if we’re talking about 11.1v Lipos which just increase the ROF (rate of fire) in most airsoft guns like crazy thanks to their high voltage. But at the same time they can be very temperamental and hard to manage. Especially if you’re not hands on, and a…

BOLT Airsoft BR-47 KeyMod BRSS Review

B21

I was able to review one of the best, if not the best EBB in the market:

This is my first Bolt Airsoft AEG so I was going pretty much into uncharted territory as I never owned one of these. However, this is my second EBB (Electric Blow Back) and I’ve had the opportunity to try, during skirmishes the notorious Tokyo Marui Recoils. Also, this gun features a unique design that is not very common, since it brings together two worlds that are often apart: the AK47 and AR-15 platforms. In fact, the BR-47 is based on one of the world’s rarest fire-arms: the KAC SR-47.

 

This AEG, oops! EBB, is already quite unique in its design and history, so I guess the question that is in all airsofters’ minds must be answered: exactly how does the Bolt BR-47 stack up against the new breed of EBBs and how good is it?

So I was very curious about this gun, as I’m sure you are too, so, if you want to find out all about it just keep reading here.

Review: Arma Tech Li-Poly Battery Packs

bat1

Hi guys and girls,

Here is my review on a couple of Lipo batteries from SpecShop:

I was given the opportunity to review a couple of Li-poly batteries from Arma Tech by Specshop, the 11.1v 20c 1000mAh and the 7.4v 25c 3300mAh. It was really great timing as I was looking for another battery for my Scorpion EVO and a battery for an AK47 that I have now as a lender/backup weapon.

MY GOALS

What I want to achieve for the EVO are basically 4 goals: 1) get another battery pack since I only have one that works with this gun (having only one is quite short at a full day game); 2) increase the rate of fire; 3) have a battery that will last a bit longer than the battery I have at the moment, since the LiFe battery I have only has 750mAh capacity; and 4) and finally use the battery voltage recommended by ASG.

As for the AK I just want a battery pack I could fit into the gun and leave it there throughout the game and not worry about it. At least until the game ends! And whether I will lend it or use it, I do not want to have to swap it, no matter how much I shoot.

ASG Scorpion EVO 3 A1 Review

ASG, Scorpion EVO 3 A1, Review, Operator7, Airsoft, AEG,

ASG, Scorpion EVO 3 A1, Review, Operator7, Airsoft, AEG,

This is probably one of the AEG’s that I had no clue what I was going to get and I was really in for a very, very nice surprise!

 

First launched in 2009 by gun manufacturer Česká Zbrojovka from Czech Republic to replace the original Scorpion CZ, it is now licensed and produced in its Airsoft version by ASG (Action Sport Games), the CZ Scorpion EVO 3 A1 is a modern submachine gun with fully polymer frame.

The new design means there are no traces of the old Scorpion. This results in a completely different and futuristic design, but more importantly an unmatched ergonomics.

This means the gun is quite easy to operate and most of the controls are ambidextrous, such as the fire selector, charging handle and magazine release button. However, there is one exception, and that is the bolt release lever which is placed on the left hand side of the gun. The sling hook can be positioned on any side and you can even get another one to have it on both sides.

PicoAAB and PicoSSR 3 from GATE Electronics

Published on January 12, 2015 by in News, Products

Interested in taking you AEG to the next level and having that snappy trigger response that makes you laugh?

Well a mosfet does just that and a lot more, and with these small 3rd generation mosfets from GATE you’ll get it all in a small package:

PicoAAB is the smallest, 3rd generation mosfet with Active Brake. It can work with 14.8V Li-Poly batteries.

The system can be installed in every AEG. It can work with the smallest ASG replicas. The installation is very easy and the interference in the replica is limited only to running one or two additional wires from the contacts.

PicoSSR 3 is a new, more powerful version of the world’s smallest mosfet – PicoSSR 2.

Its dimensions are merely 4x6x21 mm. Yet it has better electrical and mechanical parameters that its predecessor. Additionally, it is fully resistant to water immersion. It can work with the smallest AEG replicas.
Maximum battery rated voltage is 12.8 V.picossr3-1
