Gearboxes – Metal or Non-Metal?

When you’re looking at buying a gun there a several different factors to consider.

I would recommend getting a non-metal gearbox gun as your first gun as itRead More
This is something I really want to write about as I am hoping to finish piecing it all together soon.

Switching your ECHO1 ASR to Left-Handed

In airsoft, the majority of guns are meant for a right-handed operators to use, and lefties just have to be OK with it. The ECHO1 ASR is one that can be used ambidextrously. It takes about 10 minutes to change over for a left-handed user. In order to make you ECHO1 ASR Left handed, it may be easier to start by removing the stock.

My Dream MilSim Loadout

Since beginning working in the airsoft industry in July earlier this year, I’ve learned a lot about the industry, airsoft guns, some of their inner workings, and the gear that goes along with it. I’m not saying that my following list is the pinnacle of all loadouts, but it’s one that I certain I would enjoy. I was very pleased with my beginner’s loadout, but there are some things that I learned, and some things that I really just want more than my original gear. KWA CQB M4 On myRead More
If you have been reading my ongoing series article about my first airsoft event, you’ll learn that I had to get a loadout together very quickly and within a budget. I had to do a lot of asking throughout the office, because I looked online, and couldn’t find a loadout for beginners, or a comprehensive loadout of any kind.

Tippman Airsoft M4 Carbine

The new M4 Carbine by Tippmann is a promising introduction to their airsoft line. The unit is designed to run off of either HPA via a remote air rig or standard 12g CO2 cartridges and is the first of its kind to incorporate a design without the use of any electronics. The rate of fire and velocity is adjustable using a standard Allen key instead of a complex fire control unit. This is all thanks to Tippmann’s patented pressure valve system which provides a simplistic and incredibly durable mechanism. HereRead More

Bullpup Versus Standard AR Design

When it comes to airsoft, the bullpup design is far superior to the standard assault rifle design. You can take a bullpup design that is the same overall length of a standard M4 design and get much more range and accuracy out if the bullpup. The bullpup design has the magazine behind the pistol grip making use of the stock that is usually wasted on the standard AR design with fixed stocks. If you are running a CQB or MOUT load out the choice is really which style you prefer,Read More

My Favorite Primary Airsoft Gun

We all have our reasons for having our favorite primary weapon, be it that you like the Bullpup design, The Standard AR Design, or platform based. My favorite above all would have to be the MTC 2 by ECHO1. When I started playing the sport of airsoft I didn’t fully understand all the aspects of the sport or all the customization that could be done to the guns. After I had played for a while I decided it was time for me to pick up my first real primary weapon.Read More
