While at the Cybergun booth at Shot Show 2012, I took a quick peak at the new FN Herstal P90 Airsoft AEG, which is going to be made by King Arms.  While I'm personally not a fan of the P90 aesthetics, I do respect the opinions of the many P90 fans out there and can tell you from an unbiased point of view, that if you like P90s, this one should be pretty nice.  King Arms makes a nice gun.  Don't let that new Nylon Fiber body throw you.  The gun I held in the video seemed to be very well built.  Nothing felt cheap or poor quality about it.

Shot Show 2012 Airsoft Booth - ActionSportGames (ASG)
ASG Ashbury APO ASW 338 LM Spring Airsoft Sniper Rifle 
by Vega Force Company (VFC)

WOW.  Just wow!  VFC continues to blow my mind with their amazing, high-quality Airsoft guns.

ActionSportGames (ASG) intelligently chose to partner with Vega Force Company (VFC) to produce an Airsoft Replica of the Ashbury International APO Asymetric Warrior (ASW) .338 Lapua Sniper Rifle.

After getting a fairly in-depth look at the ASG product line featured at their Shot Show 2012 Airsoft booth, I gotta say that ASG, while relatively unheard of in the U.S. MilSim market, should most definitely be placed on your "Airsoft Companies to Look Out for in 2012."  I would expect these guys to become very popular in our market this year with options like this and the CZ Scorpion Evo 3 A1, scheduled for release at the end of this year.

While at Shot Show 2012 this year, I was feeling a bit frisky and decided to stop by the Pyramyd Air booth to get a look at a little different genre of guns that I normally deal with: Air Rifles.  Turns out, there are some pretty awesome Air Guns out there and I thought I would take a moment to broaden your horizons a bit.

Here are a couple basic facts about Air Guns:
Just joking, I'm not even going to pretend to know anything about Air Guns.  Your best bet, if you'd really like to know is to check out this article over on Pyramyd Air's Air Gun blog, written by world-renowned Air Gunner, Tom Gaylord.

That's right, Pyramyd Air has two fantastically awesome blogs, each written by a dude named, Tom.

Check out all the sweet photos I got at the Pyramyd Air booth from Shot Show 2012 after the jump...

Ah yes, the beauty of Shot Show. You come to a booth thinking you know everything about what they're going to show you and then, BOOM! They hit you with something crazy. That's pretty much how it went down at the ASG booth. ASG, of course, stands for ActionSportsGames, which is a company based out of Denmark and is similar to Cybergun and Umarex in that they hold official trademark licensing for some big name gun manufacturers. In the case of today's blog, we'll be showcasing the Ceska Zbrojovka (CZ) Scorpion Evo 3 A1 Proline AEG.

This thing was nuts. As I mentioned in the title of this blog, it was definitely a prototype made from one of those fancy prototype-making machines.

However, I still got a good look at what this unique little AEG is going to be all about.

Check out the full scoop on the CZ Scorpion Evo 3 A1 AEG after the jump...

I have no shame and I don't care who knows it. Heck yea, I wanna win! Can you help me out? Has there been at least one blog I've created in the past year that left you saying, "Dang, that was a great blog!" If so, please let me know but just clicking the bubble next to the Pyramyd Airsoft Blog at the link below the video here.

In the meantime, I hope you enjoy my efforts to look like an idiot.

While I was at Shot Show 2012 last week, I stopped by the Cybergun booth and got an exclusive interview with a guy named Frank, who coincidentally was built like a tank and was kind enough to give me a bit of insight as to how the new Blackwater video game scenarios for Kinect on Xbox 360 ties in to what he actually did as a Blackwater operative for a number of years.  Pretty interesting information.  The game features guns which were also made into licensed Blackwater Airsoft replicas, so if you dig the guns in the game, you can now buy Airsoft versions of them and play with them out on the Airsoft field.


ONLY ONE WEEK LEFT, BE SURE TO VOTE FOR US!!!

WOW.  Is it Shot Show 2012 time already?  Seems like just yesterday I was having my mind blown by all the new guns & gear from Shot Show 2011, but alas, I've pinched myself & determined this is not a dream.  I've been very busy all week to get prepared for this next week, so keep your eyes peeled for some sweet updates as I report from The Vegas all next week.

I'll have some sweet high res photos and maybe even some video for you to enjoy of some of the latest and greatest from a few of your favorite Airsoft Shot Show 2012 manufacturers.

The Aftermath CZ75D is a pretty sweet little CO2 pistol that is easy on the eyes AND on your budget.  I thought I'd give you a glimpse of how this thing chronos and also provide you with a few tips on operating the gun.  Check out the video after the jump...


Dan Wesson 8 Inch CO2 Airsoft Revolver
Tom Harris for the Pyramyd Airsoft Blog

For those of you that actually read my blog, rather than just skim through the pictures, you will have likely read my article from the other day on how I had some trouble with the Dan Wesson 8 Inch Revolver.  Well.  Not to toot my own horn or anything, but I refused to assume that the gun was just terrible and then rip it a new one here on the block, after I sent it back of course.  Nope.  I investigated the issue further and determined the issue to be a resolvable one.  For those curious as to what the issue was, I can tell you that it was essentially two fold:

1) The barrel was super dirty and greasy.  So I cleaned it thoroughly, but the BBs were still dropping hard and to the left.

2) The real culprit was the way that the inner barrel and the fitting upon which the plastic orange tip sits were (or rather, were not) lining up with each other, causing a consist off-axis forward spin on the BBs.

I will go into how I resolved the issue in a separate blog that does NOT include permanently removing the federally required orange tip.

For today, I'm going to talk about HOW FREAKIN' ACCURATE THE DAN WESSON 8 INCH REVOLVER IS now that I've resolved the issues aforementioned above.

First, I'd like to show you some gratuitous gun porn, featuring the Heavenly ergonomic grip with the Dan Wesson (DW) emblem set into it.  It's as if Mr. Wesson had my hands in mind when he made this grip and then ActionSportsGames replicated in an Airsoft version.  Seriously.  It's just lovely.

While the grip is actually made of ABS plastic, it has not only the molded aspect which makes it great, but some sort of texturing or treatment process was used to make it feel like freakin' velvet.  Gun grip velvet.  Somebody should manufacturer that and then pay me a royalty.  GO!

Alright, back to the test.  I didn't do a video this time because it's a huge PITA and I usually just get trolled for it on YouTube.  However, I'm probably going to do one anyway because this gun is just THAT good and I think the world needs to know it.

Even before I got this CO2 Airsoft revolver's accuracy issues resolved, I could tell that the gun was shooting a bit hot, so I decided to skip the .20g BBs and grab a couple packages of the heavier stuff which I recently unboxed on video whilst sporting a badass combat Snuggie

Dan Wesson 8 Inch CO2 Airsoft Revolver
Tom Harris for the Pyramyd Airsoft Blog
You can see the different BBs I used for today's accuracy test in the Airsoft photo above.

Listed out, from left to right, we have:
Air Venturi Pro CQBBs - .25g
Madbull Precision BBs - .25g
Aftermath Blaster Devil BBs - .28g
King Arms Platinum Series BBs - .28g

So going back to my outburst above about how freakin' accurate the Dan Wesson revolver is, I could actually tell the difference between the four different types of the BBs I was using.  Here's how the spread went:
@20 yards on a roughly 8.5"x11" steel BB/Pellet trap, sitting on a log, resting my arms on my knees to provide a more stable platform:

The Madbull .25g BBs had an ever-so-slight advantage over the Air Venturi .25g BBs.  I missed one shot, just barely to the left of the target with the Air Venturis, but not enough to call it a flyer.  I may have just tweaked the gun a hair as I pulled the trigger to pull the sights offline.  This is why it's best to do these types of tests in a vice for more assurance in your results. 

The King Arms .28g BBs, which more than likely came from the same factory as the Madbull BBs, had the slight advantage over the Blaster Devil BBs, but again, I'm really splitting hairs here because I actually have that luxury with the Dan Wesson CO2 revolver.

@30 yards is where the differences became a little more pronounced.  The results were the same as the above, just with a few more missed shots from all four brands of BBs.  The best performing BB of all four brands at this range was the King Arms Platinum Series .28g BB.  It was REALLY consistent.  The deviation from left-to-right, with the sights aimed in the center of the target was so small that it was a very safe bet that the King Arms BB was going to find its mark, provided I properly adjusted for elevation.   

The biggest flaw of this revolver is that I've determined it has no actual hop-up.  None.  So once you get about halfway into your 12 gram CO2 powerlet, you're going to start losing range as the pressure goes down and have no hop-up to compensate for that.  After taking the Dan Wesson 8 Inch Airsoft Revolver apart to a small degree, I believe that it may be possible to install an inner barrel with a fixed hop-up.  But I'll have to do some thinking on just how that might be accomplished.  I'll let you know if I figured anything out.

I don't have more than 30 yards to work with in my backyard, so I couldn't test out the maximum effective range with a fully charged CO2 cartridge, but I would guess this thing could easily do another 10 to 20 yards until the CO2 volume starts to decrease.  However, even with the decreased CO2 output, if you adjust your sights for elevation, you can still hit your target quite easily because there's virtually no side-to-side deviation other than what may be caused by the shooter.  

I was able to get, on average, around 120 shots per 12 gram CO2 cartridge.  Mind you, the power behind each shot decreases as more gas is used, but by the time I decided it was time to change each CO2 powerlet, I will still able to hit my target from just beyond 10 yards.  It doesn't even become noticeable until you get closer to that 120 mark, so not a huge issue by any means.  This is how it is in pretty much all the gas guns I have owned simply due to the physics of how gas works.

Anyway.  Great gun.  I just realized that I have not actually gone over the features of the gun, or how to operate it, so expect to see those soon.  That's all for now.

Dan Wesson 8 Inch Airsoft Revolver
Tom Harris for the Pyramyd Airsoft Blog
As part of my Dan Wesson 8 Inch Airsoft Revolver Review, I would have liked to have done more of a performance test yesterday, but unfortunately I had some real trouble getting it to shoot accurately.

The shots were hitting about 5-10 to the left of where I was aiming and there was no hop-up being applied.

The instruction manual was brief and didn't mention anything about a hop-up even existing, which is concerning to me, but doesn't mean that one doesn't exist in the Wesson revolver.

After visually inspecting the back end of the barrel with the cylinder released so that I could do so, I could see immediately, as I had suspected, that there was quite a bit of dirt, debris and/or grease in there that most definitely needed to come out of that inner barrel.

A clean barrel is a mean barrel.

See what happened when I cleaned out the inner barrel after the jump...

So here we have the Aftermath CZ75D CO2 Airsoft Blowback Pistol as my Airsoft review for today.  It'll be part of a small series of blogs featuring this gun.  I'll be testing the performance in another post here on the Pyramyd Airsoft Blog.

Today's blog covers a look inside the Elite Force M4 Competition Series (Ares OEM) Airsoft AEG. The intent here, like all my other blogs featuring the internals of various Airsoft guns I review, is to show you, the reader, what the internals of the gun look like, in the event you want to upgrade or repair your gun's internals or maybe you're just curious. Whichever way you prefer, I am here to satisfy your needs (twss).

I made a video wherein I discuss a few different options you have when it comes to attaching a sling to your Airsoft M4 Rifle.  I happened to use the Elite Force M4CR and the Elite Force M4 CQB as my guinea pigs, but these are solutions which will work with pretty much most of the M4 AEGs out there on the market.
