What Is An Airsoft Mystery Box?

Can Airsoft Be Considered A Sport?

People who are not familiar with airsoft think of it as players walking around the woods for a few hours shooting each other. While this is true on some level, it actually takes quite a bit of endurance to participate in an actual airsoft event.

I recently watched a program that was talkingRead More

In the world of airsoft today, there is still plenty of discussion about which barrel is “better” when comparing them. The problem is that most people are not looking at the whole picture when comparing barrels. Each barrel serves its purpose, and it is almost like comparing apples and oranges. I will not go into barrel length in this article, as it has already been covered in a previous article. This article will only talk about barrel bores. Let’s start with tight bores, which typically come in two main flavors:Read More

Tips & Tricks for the DMR Playstyle

More and more we are seeing players with a DMR gun set up on the field and we feel that some new players may benefit from a few tips and tricks when it comes to the DMR play style. The first thing to note is that you are a part of a team, just like the riflemen, you are not a sniper. This position does not require you to constantly sit, hide, and wait for the perfect shot.

If you have every used, or are thinking about using, a LiPo battery, you may have some questions about what all those numbers mean on the battery. I will explain what those numbers mean, and how they will relate to the specific gun you are using. They are not arbitrary numbers, and not getting the “correct” battery for your gun can actually hurt more than it helps. You do not want to arbitrarily pick a battery and throw it in your gun, and in the case of airsoft, more isRead More
