The guys return for another great show full of news, rumors, and tech tips. Steve and Jonathan discuss the whispers of the China factory raids, get all protective in Tech tips as we discuss the dangers of cheap BBs in AEGs, and cover the latest in airsoft news.
Informative with a touch of humor; we break down the news, gear reviews and tech tips that you want to hear.
1. Well, if you are really wanting to build that 40-50 rps monster...here's your solution: Pick up a KH Mountain CNC/steel high speed 14:1 gear set and get ready to shoot some silly string!
2. Charlie 11 has released their new M29A1 airsoft/paintball mortar This thing is a work of art but it comes with a hefty price tag. Who's to say that you can't window shop?
3. MAGPUL PTS ACR & MAGPUL PTS/A&K Sportsline Masada news over at Arnies- Very interesting...If this is true, then this is a partnership we would not have predicted. I wonder how the recent clone raids are affecting this new found relationship?
4. NL Airsoft has launched their own [NL]Airsoft.com video channel! They are accepting movies from Vimeo, YouTube and Google Video and, you can upload movies yourself! Submit your favourite movies now!
5. There's a new ACOG 4x32 with scope over at Gunner, and we know what you are thinking. "Not another ACOG!!!!" But this one actually has an illuminated reticle. Considering ACOGs are a dime a dozen nowadays, seeing this one with illumination is a refreshing change.
6. Steve's mask is out, and it's about time. Now all he needs is an airsoft chainsaw to complete the look...
Hot Topics in Airsoft:
Seth from Tennessee was curious to our thoughts about how the impact of the Chinese clone factory raids will have on airsoft's future? We fill the room with hot air and voice our opinions.
1. Ai-500 is coming up on Nov 13-15th at Fort Ord CA...It's being run by Roundhouse Productions, so you know this is going to be a good event! Since we are pushing back Invading winter to the spring, what else are you going to be doing??? Go!
2. Eric from ASB, Ben W. from Tampa and Robert Irwin (Our UK connection) all sent this in as soon as it went up...First and Only has YET ANOTHER cool place to play...the tunnels! YouTube video Pictures linked by Ben
3. Listener Larry wrote in asking that if all BB companies would just switch over to Bio BBs, wouldn't that be better for then environment. Do we really still need plastic bbs?
4. Milan found these cool additions to your dinner table: 40mm Grenade Salt and Pepper Shakers. Bet nobody will ask you to pass the salt anymore.
5. Steve was asking about this product in a conversation we were having last week, and I happened to stumble on it while reading the reviews at Milspec Monkey. Sixell Innovations: The Never Quit Grip: If you like what you see, you can get it at afmo.com
This is one that hits close to home, and a topic we make sure every new airsoft player understands: The dangers of using sub-quality BBs in your airsoft gun. Hear Jonathan and Steve talk about the real dangers of using the cheapo BBs from the "Big Box' stores, and what could happen if you ignore the warnings.
