  2. Classic Airsoft Guns

    Classic Airsoft guns were originally made in Japan, and were produced during the 1980’s and 1990’s. They were made by a few famous companies named JAC, Maurzen, Asahi, MGC, and Sheriff.

  4. Deal with It Sprains vs Strains

    We've all seen it, one wrong step and the day is done for the unlucky victim. An ankle sprain can ruin your whole weekend. Here's how to deal with it. The Differences Between Sprains and Strains Think of a strain as a joint problem (ankle, knee, wrist), and a sprain as a muscle problem (calf, thigh, bicep). When you get, your foot stuck in a gopher hole and take a tumble, expect an ankle sprain. Sprinting with a heavy load and feel a tearing in your calf? Could be a strain. Luckily, the...
  5. Bakelight & Steel AK Mags Breakdown

    You would be right: Polymer Magazines (Bakelite): Polymer magazines are made to function in the AK-74 and newer AK variants. However some countries did produce a polymer magazine to fit the AK-47 and AK-74M1A1 such as: Bulgaria, China, Germany and Russia. The Russian and Bulgarian Bakelite magazines tend to sell for higher prices, since only a small lot entered the country. The East German AK-74 magazines tend to sell for around $10.00 each.

  6. Cyma Real Wood Full Metal Review AK74U & Ak47

    CYMA 0.35 AK74U FULL METAL REAL WOOD: When I first opend the box to the CYMA AK74U Full W/M my heart was enlightened to see a truly full metal & real wood 1/1 replica. The feel and quality was present even with my mindsets towards Cyma and Well Products. The wood grain was of a decent quality having a nice wood finish with redish hue applied. Front end wobble was present but only minor and nothing a litte TLC could not fix. The Cyma AK74U comes in at over 10 pounds, 1.5 lbs over it's Real...
  7. ballistic mask project

    about a year ago i got hold of a level IIA ballistic face mask (a real one as opposed to the cheesy plastic copies...) anyone that knows me know i never leave anything as i found it and as usual my creative juices started to flow and i couldn't help myself from "ripping" the mask so i messed around with photoshop and came up with a few designs to put on the mask, so i thought i would document the project here... here are a few of the designs i came up with:
  8. Smiley

    the smiley looked like te most fun to do so i started with that this is the "virtual" photoshopped mask (the mask in this photo is acually of the copy plastic mask, i didn't havr=e a photo of mine handy so i just grabbed one off the internet, you can see the lip around the edge of the mask): this is the completed: but i felt it looked a little "new" so i gave it a more "used" look, a few oily finger prints and a couple of scratches...: here is the finished mask with full gear:
  9. Ahhh, the life of an Airsmith...

    In the last three months, I have attended exactly one event. I have been so busy dealing with other peoples guns, I still haven’t finished the upgrades and parts swaps on my own guns. Sure, I have quite a few AEGs that are ready to go, and have been since I finished them early last year, but everyone knows those guns. I want to bring something different (for me, at least) to this years games. Anyway, to help spread my knowledge of the inner workings of all things AEG (and hopefully get out...
  10. Dudes check it out

    OK here it is, the moment you've all been waiting for...the camouflage of my gun. First, My gun without any camo (besides the grips, silencer, and parts of the outer barrel): And now.......... Me Holding my gun with camo: My gun on the bed: Am I amazing or what. Hopefully I'll get some more pics of me using it, possibly in a game, but just from setting it out in the woods and stepping 30 feet back it's hard to see, it blends really well and has very little glare. I got the stuff I used...
  11. my three rules to airsoft

    Don't get hit. your better off playing it safe then playing rambo. When its either you or him, it should always result in him. Not because thats the name of the game, but because postponing your death is the best way to win. There's always a second chance if your still in the game, but once you strike out, your down for the count. Plan two steps ahead, Tactics and the skills to predetermine your enemies movements is a art. First take into account what he knows. you both know that to the...
  12. Sniping and Stuff

    This subject kind of came to my mind after I realized how many different opinions I've heard on the effectiveness of snipers in different scenarios. Some of these I can't help but agree on, and others I really don't get. The most baffling one I've heard is that snipers cannot be effective on an offensive team or squad. I'm thinking the writer of this particular statement was misunderstanding something. Snipers, in my opinion at least, play not a strictly offensive or defensive role on the...
  13. The DBoys KAC PDW - One hell of a weapon...

    When I saw the DBoys KAC PDW for the first time, I was amazed. It looks awesome, it shoots very well, it is powerful and yet very, very compact. For its size, the gun is incredibly comfortable.

First of all, how exactly is inside the box? There is the gun, obviously. Then, there is a very well crafted, 80 rounds...
  14. Why I hate the Lottery..

    I don't know what's worse; Buying a 1$ scratch lottery ticket with your last cash dollar and not winning. Or buying a 1$ scratch ticket with your last cash dollar and winning.... Long story of it, I went to the grocery store to buy some sandwich rolls to make sandwiches out of my last nights leftover peppered beef for lunch. I rarely carry cash anymore, but had a sales transaction over the weekend and after filling the gas tank in my truck, I had $5 left. A couple pieces of really good...
