*By "tale," I mean a succulent Airsoft AEG review with a metric crap-ton of photos.  For the those not living in my world, a "crap-ton" is a unit of measurement that is bigger & stinkier than a regular ton.

Since it's not entirely obvious what we're looking at the photo adjacent to my sexy little words, I'll fill you in: We're looking down the barrel of the very same SOCOM Gear PWS Diablo Mk1 Airsoft gun that I will be reviewing in this blog post. Some of you might say, "Well, no 'shizzle,' Sherlock. What other gun could it be, since this whole blog is about that same gun?"

Excellent question, BUT, I will warn you lovely readers that I am NOT above putting random photos in the midst of my reviews, just to keep you on your tippy toes.

That's why I gave you the heads up. You are, as always, most welcome. 
















Here's one to prove my point...

The Echo1 M240 Bravo, my favorite Airsoft heavy machine gun. Right in the middle of this review. So you see, I CAN put my money where my mouth is. This Airsoft squad support weapon photo was taken by my friend Dave a couple weeks ago at a little event called Operation: Red Storm, which was nothing short of stellar.  The AO (Area of Operation) which we played in, on, and around was out-freakin'-standing.  I will FINALLY have my AAR on that event coming up next (stupid tax season). 

But I digress...

So the SOCOM Gear PWS Diablo, huh? I think it's obvious this Airsoft gun was made to be drooled over. I mean, seriously. You can't tell me that thing doesn't photograph well. It's a very attractive AEG and was quite breathtaking when I first gazed upon its beauty during the unboxing of its mouth-watering tan & shimmering green body.

Speaking of that body, specifically the SOCOM Gear PWS Diablo's lower receiver...

Licensed Primary Weapon System trademarks. SOCOM Gear doesn't fiddle nor fart around. They threw down some cash and made this already legit Airsoft gun, actually legally legit. See what I did there? Word.  Yea, I guess it turns out that in order to use someone else's IP (Intellectual Property), you actually have to pay for it.  Weird.  Something many in the Airsoft industry seem to overlook, but not SOCOM Gear.  Tip of my cap, to you, SOCOM Gear.    If I were to personify your company, you would be both a gentleman AND a scholar. 

So I thought I'd have some fun in Adobe Photoshop (CS5, for those who give a hoot), and ended up ruining this photo instead...

BUT, it turned out that you can see those trades pretty well so I said, "screw it, I'll post it anyway."  I'm sure Primary Weapon Systems doesn't mind.  There's no such thing as "bad publicity."  Just ask Charlie Sheen.

Now, if I'm not mistaken, which is not usually the case (unless you ask my wife), SOCOM Gear and/or MadBull is/are referring to the color of this front end RIS as "Dark Earth." However, when I think of Dark Earth, I think of Tan.

The RIS on SOCOM Gear's PWS Diablo looks to me to be more on the green side of things. But not just any green.

I've decided that I'm referring to the color of MadBull's Dark Earth RIS as "Pornography Green" because it's fun to look at.

Now, I know I said this was a SOCOM Gear Airsoft AEG.  And it is.  But, that don't mean my homies at SOCOM Gear didn't phone a friend and get Madbull "up in the club" on this one.   MadBull Airsoft not only geeked out the front end of SOCOM Gear's PWS Diablo with the rail system, but they're also the ones with dibs on the rights to the Airsoft version of the beefed-up PWS compensator you see just out of focus.  I did that on purpose so that I would have an excuse to post another sweet photo, this time focusing on the PWS compensator, rather than the RIS (rail interface system).

See. I wasn't kidding.  Am I showing off a bit with my new-found camera skillz?  Maybe.  Maybe not.  My very good friend, Dave, of Bakholdin Photography, as well as my sometimes-sweet-and-wonderful wife, have both been sharing their wealth of photography knowledge with me.  Normally, I shoot on Auto.  This actually works in a couple contexts: (1) When I shoot photos and (2) When I shoot tangos with my M240 Bravo on the Airsoft field.  However, I decided it was time to man up and learn how to take a proper photo using the manual settings on my Canon 30D.  I'll be the first to admit these are NOT the best images in the world, but considering that they were literally the first photos I've ever taken in manual mode without any of my professional photog friends or family standing over my shoulder to assist, I think I've earned one, possibly two, bragging rights.

Alright, too much talking, not enough Airsoft gun porn.  So here, feast your eyes on SOCOM Gear's PWS Diablo from the right side:

MadBull Airsoft's 7" Primary Weapon System's Diablo Rail Interface System in "Pornography Green" again.

Many women prefer a rail system of at least 7 inches (17.78 cm, for my metric friends).  Don't believe it when people tell you that size doesn't matter.  That's just something that those with inadequate rail systems say to help them hide from reality.

I suppose at this point, some of you may be wondering how the PWS Diablo Airsoft AEG operates.  If you are wondering that, then you, my friend, are probably someone who is not a "Chairsofter," but one who actually plays Airsoft and likes it when your Airsoft gun shoots what you're aiming at.  Whether that is the case with SOCOM Gear's latest edition to their bag of good-looking Airsoft tricks, will be revealed all in good time.

If you're beginning to hear the sounds of some sort of music fading in, don't worry, I hear it, too.  I have reason to suspect that it's those damn award-acceptance speech regulators giving me the signal that it's time to declare this portion of the SOCOM Gear PWS Diablo Mk1 AEG Review a "burrito" and WRAP IT UP.  WOW.  If you need a second to soak in what just happened, it's cool, I'm still waiting for the room to stop spinning.  That was stupid, but I couldn't help myself from saying it anyway.  I really should stop, but before I go, I have two words to say, followed by one last photo, and then a few more words. 
(1)SLING (2)MOUNT

Other manufacturers should follow SOCOM Gear's lead and put a freakin' sling mount on their rifles (although there are a few others that also get picture, figuratively speaking).  I hate having to drop NO LESS than 20 stinkin' bucks (after tax & shipping) on a sold-separately sling mount and then have to spend the extra time, even though it doesn't take that long, to install that mount on my new Airsoft gun.

So anyway, this is just Part I of my review of the Primary Weapon Systems Diablo Airsoft AEG from SOCOM Gear.  So far, I'm extremely pleased. In the next installment of my Airsoft adventures, I'll discuss more of the features this gun has to boast, as well as my initial impressions for skirmishabality right out of the box.   

When in doubt, increase your rate of fire.

Airsoft.
