G-Tac AK Chest Rig

Review: G-Tac AK Chest Rig

Airsoft is generally gear-intensive, and there’s a good chance that you’ve got a bunch of equipment you’ll want to take onto the field with you. Your pockets might work fine if all you’re carrying is a spare magazine or two, but if you’re hauling anything beyond that, you’ll want a chest rig of some kind.

G&G GKM AEG

Review: G&G GKM Assault Rifle

It’s no secret that I love AK’s. There’s a picture of Mikhail Kalashnikov looking over my work area, frowning sternly at my shoddy capitalist technical skills. Now, it seems like every time an airsoft manufacturer announces a new AK, it’s some new amalgamation of M4 parts with an AK receiver, so when G&G announced the GKM, I was very happy to see that it would have the timeless AKM design.

KJW Sig Sauer P229

Review: KJW Sig Sauer P229

One of my favorite aspects of airsoft firearms is the level of detail that goes into recreating the authentic look and feel of the original guns they are modeled after. In the case of the P229, I have owned a real Sig Sauer P229 in a 9mm caliber for several years; it is one of my favorite handguns next to my custom Ruger Mark III competition target pistol.

ICS CXP .08 Concept Rifle Sportline

Review: ICS CXP .08 Concept Rifle Sportline

I have a love-hate relationship with the M4. On one hand, I love the time-proven ergonomics, pleasant handling and low weight of the platform, but on the other (apparently more judgmental) hand, I hate that they’re so common. Even though there’s an abundant aftermarket for the M4 with nearly unlimited options for customization, it still seems that about 75 percent of the AEGs you see at the field are an M4 with a crane stock, quad rail, and various other bits and bobbles bolted to it.

ActionSportGames Ashbury ASW338LM

Review: ActionSportGames Ashbury ASW338LM

ActionSportGames has continued to partner with very high end airsoft manufacturers in order to produce licensed replicas of high-end real steel firearms, and the Ashbury ASW338LM is one of their newest to be released. A very impressive replica of the real Ashbury Asymmetric Warrior, the ASG 338 has all of the ergonomic and adjustability functions of its big brother, but without its pesky ability to punch .338-inch wide holes in meaty targets hundreds of yards away.
