The Duo of Steve and Jonathan hold down the fort, and share the 3rd seat with friend of the show Byrd. It's another great episode with plenty of humor, tech tips and reviews that you don't want to miss.
Informative with a touch of humor; we break down the news, gear reviews and tech tips that you want to hear.
Brought to you this week by the "Roving Airsoft Reporter" Conner B!!!!!
- Airsoft GI is at it again with their custom gun line. This time they have found a way to take some thing that already awesome and make it even better. The New KWA SR10 + Daniel Defense rail system = Awesomeness! If you're in the market for a custom KWA M4, this one is the one to get.
- Modify just announced their new Torus 8mm gearbox shell. As you know, they previously had a 7mm shell but since the bushing-size 'arms race" is on, they decided to step it up a notch...er..millimeter.
- Redwolf just came out with a great review of the new KJW GBB M4. Yeah yeah, we know what you are thinking "Not ANOTHER GBB M4!!!!" But considering Tanio Koba designed the rifle, this one has our attention.
- While we're on the subject of gas M4s; Bomber Custom has made a limited edition M733 GBB. We think this was the news story Steve was trying to talk about in show 18 when Chris and Jonathan mercilessly pounced as he stumbled.
- Last but not least, because of the rumors that have been spreading lately, Madbull sent their BBs in to be tested for cobalt. Their results turned out negative...not that they were worried.
- KWA (which seems to be the theme of this show,and that's a good thing) is dealing with counterfeit guns entering the market, specifically models no longer sold in the US (ie: Glock Pistols). They are packaged like KWA (but in old designed packaging), look like KWA but are not KWA. Sadly KWAUSA is seeing customers that purchased these guns come to them for warranty support and are being turned away. So, if you are shopping for a Glock pistol, and you find a "new" KWA...it's a good chance it's fake.
Conner B. pointed us to karMeister's review of the new KWA G2x mechbox over at the KWA forums. This is what we like to see from an airsoft company, they recognize issues, take constructive feedback from their customers and react quickly. It's not a hard business concept to understand, it's just difficult to master...and it seems KWA USA is doing their share of mastering!
