One of the most important things to an airsofter using a gas gun is gas efficiency. That is, ensuring that the gun uses the least possible gas to operate at the desired muzzle velocity. This then results in more shots per magazine, less time spent re-loading gas, less wasted money.
In this article, we’re going to show you a number of different techniques to improving the gas efficiency of your gas guns.
At its absolute best, the UK military is one of the most up-to-date, top-of-the-line militaries in the world. Ignoring issues such as underfunding and equipment shortages, when our military is fully equipped as it should be, they’re able to outmatch and outgun the vast majority of opposing forces.
In this post, we show you some of the UK Armed Forces’ essential bits of equipment.
Airsoft is a sport unlike any other. No other sport can compare in the huge variation of types of gameplay, weather, terrain, people or tactics that you find in the game field. There’s no sport out there that brings together so many different elements and variation.
However, this doesn’t mean that there’s nothing that airsoft can learn from other sports. Here are 3 lessons that airsofters (and airsoft) could learn from other sports in order to “improve”.
The ghillie suit was originally developed by Scottish game keepers as a portable hunting blind. The camouflage was first used for military applications by the British army during the Second Boer War (1899).
The term ghillie refers to Scottish folklore tale, Ghillie Dhu, a solitary nature fairy clothed in leaves and moss.
Are they worth it for airsoft use?
Since the invention of fire arms in the 1300s, there has been a steady and required need to tirelessly train with their use. Firearms have always been tricky to get to grips with as a first time user, so repeated drills and exercises are used to develop muscle memory. Developing a solid muscle memory and instinct for safe firearm use is the only way to operate efficiently in the field, without adrenaline and fear causing you to lock up or forget where the trigger is.
Airsofters love to replicate some of their favourite games in their real life kit. In this ‘Kit List’ series, we’re looking at the gear and kit that goes into doing an accurate impression of the Battlefield 4 US Assault kit.
This loadout is a popular one for airsofters to do impressions on, as it’s a modern one. This means that there’s often a lot of reproduction parts and gear that can make this kit list attainable yet affordable.
IWA is an exhibition held in Nuremberg, Germany for high performance target sports, nature activities and shooting companies to exhibit their latest products and news. IWA began in 1973 with just 100 exhibitors and has now expanded into a world-leading trade fair for hunting, shooting sports, equipment for outdoor activities, and for civilian and official security applications. In 2016, IWA featured 1,455 exhibitors and over 45,500 trade visitors from 114 different countries and continues to grow every year.
MilSim stands for Military Simulation and is a kind of airsofting that takes our sport onto the next level of realism. Players are kept to strict rules with regards to their kit, weapons and ammo, are often regimented exactly as they would be in the military, and play through day and night operations.
There’s absolutely no reason to get mad about it, but we do because the difference is just so simple to understand the mistake shouldn’t have been made in the first place.
For those of us in the northern hemisphere, winter is upon us and this can stop even the hardiest of airsofters from braving the cold on a Sunday morning. This means that during the winter, the sport can grind to a halt and there’s few players out there.
To you guys who get out there and continue enjoying the sport, we’ve put together a handful of tips that go beyond ‘wrap up warm’ and should get you out there playing even on the coldest of days (or nights).
