ZOXNA Mini Launcher X.2

BB launchers have always been the centre of heated debates here at AIHQ, but for the majority of the team, we have never used them on a skirmish field. That's not to say they don't have a place in your armoury; the number of manufacturers supplying launchers and a whole heap of grenades say they do. For us, a real concern has always been how they are used when the common sense of the user fails and those all-important "minimum...

The Arcturus AK-47 AT-06

  Not just another AK? When you look at this,  a lot of people will think  "it's just another AK", and you can be forgiven for thinking that, but what you have here,  is in my mind one of the best AK's to be added to the extensive range of great rifles from Arcturus. Since Arcturus made its entry into the Airsoft scene, they have continued to impress me with their approach, they have produced great looking and excellent performance replicas....

Tokyo Marui’s M93R

Tokyo Marui’s M93R Tokyo Marui’s M93R is based on the selective-fire 9x19mm Beretta M93R. The "R" stands for "Raffica" which means 'burst' in Italian. Designed in the 70s for police and military use, the offering of extra firepower in a small package made it ideal for concealed-carry purposes such as VIP protection, or for close quarters fighting such as room-to-room searches. The basic design of the Beretta 93R machine pistol is based on the famous Beretta 92 pistol, and the...

MK-ZERO NEXT GEN CONTROL UNIT

  You don’t have very far to search when looking for a MOSFET these days, with the online market being abundantly littered with them, and in all manner of configurations and abilities too. So what is a MOSFET and why do they vary so much? Well in their most basic form, a MOSFET (Metal Oxide Semiconductor Field-Effect Transistor) is mostly just a switch, and by using a small amount of current, you can send a much larger current to a different...

How Hop units work

How Hop units work Hop-up generally speaking applies backspin to bb's to increase their range by reducing the air pressure on the bb's top side causing the plastic pellet to fall less over a given distance than it would without the spin applied, extending the effective range without increasing velocity. In Airsoft guns, this is usually implemented by a projection called bucking. The bucking momentarily disturbs the flight of the top side of the bb causing that all important backspin,...

Helikon’s ‘Training Mini-Rig

Dave Porter reviews the Helikon's'Training Mini-Rig For a few months now I've had the pleasure of fielding Helikon's 'Training Mini-Rig', or TMR for short. I have to be careful that this review doesn't sound like a sales pitch, because in all honesty, I really don't have a bad word to say about it. To put some context to how I've been using it, I typically run as an assaulter-style role, yet occasionally I pick up a bolt action or DMR...
