Guns are dirty. It’s an unfortunate fact of the sport. You will, at some point, need to clean your firearm. Now, unless you’re lucky enough to be able to employ someone to do that for you, you probably need to learn how to clean it and what products to do it with.
So, what products are the best for cleaning your firearms? Which product (of the many available) does what you need it to?
However, lubricants can be tricky. There are multiple different materials and lubricant types. Not to mention a whole list of when you should and shouldn’t use them. Use this guide as your complete resource in how to lubricate, with what product, and when to lubricate your airsoft guns.

As we spoke about in our blog “the difference between accuracy and precision”, the most important thing about rifle shooting at long range is consistency and predictability. One of the variables that can affect your rifle’s consistency is rifle scope parallax.
In the ever present pursuit of realism and awesomeness in airsoft, vehicles are a way of bringing a certain x-factor into the game that you will struggle to get in any other way.

So in the spirit of finding next-level greatness in airsoft, we’ve put together a list of 5 amazing places and airsoft games where vehicles are being used and how they do it safely.

I’m here to tell you something that you might not want to hear:
There are 3 primary kinds of airsoft magazine, high-cap, mid-cap and low-cap. In this post we’ll help you understand the benefits and negatives of using each. In this blog, we’ll be using images and talking about STANAG magazines, but this information is applicable to all kinds of magazines and weapons from the proprietary G36 Mag to the AK47 banana mag and the MP5 stick magazine.
