Now that I've shown you how to get to the gearbox of the Elite Force Competition Series M4A1 Carbine, I will now provide you with the rest of the knowledge required to change your spring using the quick-change spring feature. 

Some of you might be wondering what the purpose of having the ability to quickly change out your spring would be, so I'll tell you.  Let's say, for example, that your Elite Force M4 chronos at 350 FPS and you're going to an outdoor game on a big field, which allows for assault rifles to shoot up to 400 FPS.  Having the quick-change spring feature comes in real handy because you can swap out your 350 FPS spring for something like an M120 spring which will put your gun right around 400 FPS to give it that extra range it needs to stay competitive with the other rifles out on the field.  Mind you, having a good gun is only half the battle.  You'll need a good set of tactical knowledge about movement and outsmarting your opponent as well, but that's another topic for another time. 


So anyway, back to our gearbox.  Check out the quick tutorial about quick-changing your spring after the jump...

For today's installment of my Health and Safety Series for Airsoft Champions, I thought I'd cover something so basic, but so important.  Getting into the habit of switching your Airsoft gun's safety on and off at the appropriate times.

While there may be differing schools of thought on this, I received professional instruction that the gun safety should be "on" when holstered, which certainly makes sense to me. 


Then, draw your pistol

Switch safety off. 


From here, there are more steps to drawing your pistol, but I'm not going to get into those right now. 


From the other side, just so you can see what's really going on...

Thumb should be resting on safety here, but I was having a hard time making it clear in the photo what I was trying to convey.  Safety is on.
Safety is off.  Hammer is cocked. 


When you go to holster the weapon again with the hammer cocked, switch the safety back on with your thumb before you insert the gun.

These are good practices to get into not just for Airsoft, but especially for use with firearms.

Troll Bait - My Green Gas vs. Propane Video

About six months ago, I began to notice how much time I was having to spend nursing my gas blowback pistols. I have several that I throw into rotation when I play, with the majority of them being Hi-Capa variants from both Tokyo Marui and WE with a Marui Mk23 SOCOM and one or two others as well. One common issue I was having was mag leaks. Not always a big blowout like you'll see in the video below, but a leak none the less. I've also gone through several loading nozzles in the Hi-Capas, including the Tokyo Marui 5.1. So I thought about it, talked to a few friends who not only use gas pistols but gas blowback M4s as well, read a bit online and came to the conclusion that I ought to give Green Gas another shot.

For those of you that didn't know, Green Gas is propane gas mixed with silicone oil and when I refer to using just plain propane, I am referring to those Coleman camping stove cans you can get at your local hardware or camping store for like $3-$4 a can, attach an Airsoft propane adapter to and use just like a can of Green Gas for filling your Airsoft green gas guns.  The only difference being that when using propane by itself, you must remember to add a drop or two of silicone oil to your adapter when filling your mag for the 10th to 15th time.  The number of refills varies, but that's the range I've commonly seen recommended over the years.  Some say as often as eight refills, but I don't know.  Anyway, now you've been brought up to speed here.

I had initially switched from Green Gas to Propane several years ago because once you get the propane adapter, it becomes an extremely cost effective solution for powering your gas guns on a per-can basis. The problem is a common one that applies to many other things in life. You might some savings on one end, but it'll end up costing you on the other end. For me, the primary cost was time, which I really don't have to be spending at my workbench, resealing gas mags and replacing loading nozzles. Now I realize there's a HUGE group of propane advocates out there. Within just a few short hours of uploading the video last night, I had a whole slough of fresh comments ranging from reasonable arguments to conspiracy theories from guys who have used propane successfully for quite awhile, it sounds like. That's cool. All I'm doing here is trying to share my experience and provide a different point of view. The cost difference between a can of propane and a can of green gas is something that can't be ignored. But for me, I have had a heck of a time being able to regularly drop in the silicone oil periodically. Whether I just forgot or I DID remember, but didn't really have the time to go through all my mags and lube each up them up. I realize this is more of a personal issue than anything else, but I know there are others out there who would just prefer their gear to work and not have to spend the majority of their free time working on guns. I'm not saying one should ignore taking steps to clean barrels & perform other procedures that contribute to the longevity of your Airsoft guns, but in this particular instance, I think the process of maintaining your gas guns can be streamlined quite a bit by simply using green gas. Yes, you're going to have to pay quite a bit more for it, but, personally, I still find value there.

If you're short on cash, then yes, Propane is a great way to make those dollars last longer, but it's simply going to take a bit more work on your part to keep your guns in good shape.

One last note to the conspiracy theorist out there. I was trying to keep the video short and sweet, so I cut out as much dead time as I could. I did NOT remove any o-rings or apply any other sneaky, underhanded techniques to get the mag seal to blowout. As God is my witness, for the propane mag fill scene, I literally just took a regular hi-capa mag that I knew to be functional and filled it with propane. Some have already stated that I over-filled it, which may be true, but I made it a point with the green gas to try and fill the mag for the same amount of time (~ 4 seconds) to see if I would get the same result of a blowout, which I did not. To me, this shows that green gas is easy on the mag. Apparently, to some of the trolls out there, it means nothing and/or that I'm just trying to sell Green Gas here. Well, I can honestly tell you that there is zero incentive for me to push green gas over propane and vice versa. I get no commission. Like I said, I'm just here to share my own experiences and point of view on the matter. Make your own choices based on what you think makes the most sense. There are advantages to both sides, as I see it.

So let us talk for a minute about rechargeable Airsoft battery packs for AEGs.  These things are a crucial element to our guns, as they provide the electrical current to power the weapon.  In the case of an upgraded AEG, you're going to need your battery to be in good condition and fully charged when you go out for an all-day Airsoft game and especially for the big 2-day Ops.  The best way to take care of your batteries is to understand how to take care of them first.  Perhaps the most common type of Airsoft battery pack is the Nickel Metal Hydride (NiMH) battery pack.  The other most common type is going to be the Lithium-Polymer, but that's a whole other animal that we'll get into another time.

For today's discussion, I'd like to educate you if but for just a moment about taking the care not to overcharge your NiMH and ruin the cells.  The single most greatest thing you can do for your batteries, regardless of their type, is to INVEST in a high-quality battery charger, also known as a "smart charger."  While you can get away with a lower quality charger for your NiMH batteries (and I'll explain how in a moment), a high-quality balancing charger for your Li-Pos is a must. 

However, I realize that with everything required to effectively play Airsoft, costs can add up and let's face it.  Times are tough and money don't grow on trees.  So maybe you don't have the cash to spring for the fancy pants charger, but you do have that wall adapter charger thing that came with your AEG in the box.  Well.  That'll do in a pinch.  BUT, you need to pay attention to what you're doing because unlike the smart chargers, the wall adapters will not think for themselves.  They're just designed to pump current back into a battery, but have no shut-off.  So you need to correctly calculate the charge time and then unplug your battery before you do any damage. 

Here's the formula (yes, it's math-related and commonly found on Google) for how you calculate the charge time, in hours, of your Airsoft battery pack, assuming a 20% efficiency loss.

[(capacity of the battery (mAh) / charging current power output of the charger (mA)) * 12] / 10 = battery charging time


For example, using this 500mA charger, and assuming you're using a 9.6V 1600 mAh NiMH battery, you can figure the charging time as follows:

[(1600/500)*12]/10 = 3.84 hours of charging time. 

Remember, PEMDAS?  Yea, that's applicable here.  If you don't know what PEMDAS is, please retake high school.

Test Driving the KWA Mk23 USSOCOM GBB Pistol

So I had this great review planned out today. I had the opportunity to demo the KWA Mk23 USSOCOM Gas Blowback Pistol today.

But then disaster struck...

 So I skirmished with the new Elite Force M4 AEG two weeks ago and was very pleased with what this rifle did for me while I was checking out a new field to play Airsoft.  After seeing how accurate it was, I was anxious to get this gun out on the field to play with it.   

I used the super-handy quick-change spring feature on the Elite Force M4's gearbox to quickly drop in an M120 spring to bump up the FPS to just under 400 FPS with a .20g BB.  I had been told by a friend ahead of time that the field we were going to check out was mainly outdoors, but did have a building on it which is said to be an abandoned Air Force research facility, used by our military back in the day to do military stuff.  

Check out more photos after the jump...

Paracord Bracelets at Pyramyd Air

Pyramyd Air is now carrying the paracord survival bracelets that we all know & love. 


Paracord has many uses.  It's actually not primarily for making fashionably tactical bracelets, that is the by-product of needing to carry relatively strong rope on your person in case you get stranded somewhere desolate or if the Zombie Apocalypse were to occur.  Not only is Pyramyd Air now carrying the Black/Coyote Tan cobra paracord bracelet you see above, they've also got one in Rose Pink, as a symbol of Breast Cancer awareness.

As I was saying, paracord has many uses.  So many, that I'm not going to list them all here.  However, I will list my favorites, which include, but are not limited to,
- Dental Floss
- Human restraints (this could be a crime if not performed under the appropriate circumstances, so think before you just tie someone up there, buddy)
- Knife lanyards
- Knife handle wraps
- Making a hammock
- Making a snare to catch the world's most deadliest game

- Making a trip wire & attaching something that makes noise to it to alert you in case intruders
- Making fishing line to catch a predator

So anyway, those are a few different uses for paracord, but there are so many more.   The beauty of these paracord bracelets is that everyone is wearing them now (hell, I wear two because I dare to be different).  It's a stylish way to carry the cord on your person while letting others know you're a conformist, but that you're not afraid to survive like a champion.

For anyone who knows me personally in the local Airsoft scene, it's pretty safe to assume that I'm going to bring a ton of stuff with me whenever I go to a game.  I HATE getting to a game and being without something that I end up needing, so I bring a lot of stuff to avoid that.  I don't recommend this approach.  However, it HAS justified itself on a number of occasions where either teammates or I got into a situation where we needed a specific item that I happened to have brought with me, whether it be a special tool or CO2 cartridges for Thunder B Sound Flash Grenades, chances are, I've got it.

So as I was combing my tactical beard this evening, in preparation for an epic 2-Day Airsoft game (OP: Final Option) up in Fresno, CA, I was mentally going over my checklist of things that I need to bring with me to the all-weekend event.  So I thought I might share my checklist for this weekend with you here, in case you were in need of ideas on what to bring with you to your big game.  Keep in mind, everyone's list is going to be different, and I'm not saying my list is, like, the super best most tactically legit list there is, but it should give you an idea of things to plan for during a 2-day Airsoft OP where you're camping out at the field.  This is also a list made for weather that tends to be pretty cold, but not snow/ice temperatures. So several items would be unnecessary for warmer temperatures.

Clothes/Uniform/Loadout:
- 5.11 Rapid Assault Shirt
- 5.11 Ripstop TDUs
- 5.11 OD Belt
- 5.11 8" ATAC Side-Zip Water-Resistant Boots

- Voodoo Tactical High Mobility Plate Carrier/
- 1x5.11 VTAC Double-Stack Double M4 Mag Pouch
- 1x5.11 VTAC Double-Stack Single M4 Mag Pouch
- 5.11 Hard Time Hard-Knuckle Gloves
- Paracord Bracelet - Cobra Weave
- OD Shemagh
- ESS Profile Turbofan Goggles for eye protection
- King Arms IBH Helmet - OD
- 3xSocks
- 3xSkivvies
- ICOM Radio & Headset
- Map of field
- Compass (the field is 1 square mile of raw private land, so yea, the compass is not a wild notion in this instance)
- Chem-Light for night game
- ITT Night Vision Monocular for night game
- Tac Light for primary weapon
- 5.11 C.A.M.S. Bag to "Carry All My Stuff."  See what I did there?  


Camping/Staging Area Gear:
- 6-Foot Folding Table
- EZ-Up Instant Shelter Tent
- Folding Chair
- Tool Box
- Camera
- Tri-pod
- Battery Charger
- AC Car Inverter Outlet
- Phone Charger
- ICOM Radio charger
- Camping Tent
- Ground tarp to go underneath tent
- Toilet paper for combat dumps
- Super warm sleeping bag & pillow
- Fleece beanie (5.11 Watch Cap) to reduce body heat escaping via my head during sleep
- Air mattress because I'm sensitive
- Camping Stove
- Food to cook
- Utensils for eating & cooking
- Snacks that don't require cooking
- Water.
- Water.
- Gatorade G2
- Water.
- Water bottle
- Protein powder (or protein bar or shake) to repair my bulging, yet damaged muscle tissue.

Guns:
- PolarStar PR-25

- Echo1 M240 Bravo Machine Gun

- VFC M4

- Elite Force Competition Series M4

- Tokyo Marui Hi-Capa 5.1 Gas Blowback Pistol

- Tokyo Marui Mk23 USSOCOM Non-blowback Pistol

Granted, I've got a lot more stuff listed than what I've illustrated to you in the photos, but you can start to get an idea of how things can really pile up. So don't judge me.  I'm sure I've probably forgotten a few things as well, but I've still got time to remember before I depart for my trip.


Speaking of guns, Pyramyd Air has some phenomenal Christmas deals going on right now.  Check out their 12 Deals of Christmas.  There are still several deals they have yet to release, which will be done over the next few days.

Dear Parents,

If you've found your way to this blog, you either A) already knew that it was awesome because you're a regular reader or B) you stumbled upon it via Google when searching for almost last-minute gifts for your beloved children who have expressed a burning desire to get into Airsoft.  Well I'll start by saying this in advance: You're welcome.

Here are three gifts that will not only make your children happy, but you'll be able to avoid tapping into your retirement fund just to cover the cost.

For starters, how about the Crosman C41 CO2 Pistol?  I will readily admit that the gun looks super dumb but it's OVER HALF OFF (even if only by a percent).    


If this is the option you go with, make sure to stock up on Crosman 12 Gram CO2 Cartridges.


The Game Face Elite Combat Gas Blowback Pistol - Much better looking AND still a fatty discount.
If you go with the green gas pistol I literally just mentioned, make sure to throw some Airsoft Green Gas in your cart as well.


Ah yes. The Airsoft AK47.  In this case, specifically the GameFace/Classic Army AK47 Airsoft AEG.  Nothing says "You're my favorite child of all my children" like giving your kid(s) the gift of world-famous firepower.   And right now, that firepower is 30% off because it feels good.

The great news about this AEG is that it already comes with a battery and charger, so all you need to add to the cart is some Airsoft BBs and you're ready to start stitchin' up bad guys up like Mr. Kalashnikov would want you to. 

Oh yeah, last, but certainly most important: Eye Protection Those dreams of your child being able to see you with both eyes will go down the crapper if you don't instill the fear of God and blindness in them.  

So.  Now, not only are your kids going to be happy, but now they're going to go around the neighborhood after Christmas and brag about how their parents are the best, making you the envy all of your neighbors. 

Don't let your kids, or other kids, play with Airsoft guns in your neighborhood or any other public place, though.  It's a crime (look it up). 

Merry Christmas.

Love,

Tominator

Airsoft Sniper Rifles - Deals on Distance

Pyramyd Air has a ton of Airsoft sniper rifles on sale right now for the Christmas season.  Two in particular I think are of superbly great value: 

The Echo1 ASR (Advanced Sniper Rifle) and the UTG Master Sniper Rifle
Both are on sale for around a hundred bucks, plus or minus a few dollars.  Not only that, but Pyramyd Air is throwing in a grip of free BBs with each Airsoft sniper rifle to sweeten the deal for you as a way of saying, "Hey, thanks for being awesome." 
Read more on my favorite of the two Airsoft sniper rifles after the jump...

As part of Pyramyd Air's 12 Deals of Christmas, which started today, they pretty much cut the price in half of the WE Full Metal 1911 MEU Desert Tan Gas Blowback Pistols.  For a mere $80, you can take control of an extremely sexy, high-performance Airsoft gas pistol featuring metal frame and slide, silver trigger, rubber MEU-style grips, pistol retention lanyard loop, two single-stack silver gas mags with extended butt plate.

I MEAN SERIOUSLY.  $80 BUCKS!?! This is a great deal.  These guns are freakin' legit and I've really enjoyed the use of mine.  The only issue I would warn you of is not to leave your gas magazines (or any green gas cans/propane tanks) in your car, especially during the summer time.  If you're like me and leave a bit of gas in them to protect the o-ring seals, it can cause your mags to expand and no longer fit inside the magwell of the gun.  This is stupid problem to have and is preventable.  So just be aware of that cautionary tale to not be lazy.  Take care your gear and it will take care of you.
