Energizer Hard Case Tango Tactical Helmet Light

  You can be forgiven in thinking that Energizer just made batteries. Let's face it, we have all seen that bunny and its ability to keep on going.

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.

Jack Pyke Electronic Ear Defenders

Ear defenders are rarely taken into consideration for airsoft, outside of a comms solution using the earmuff and boom mic setup. Coming from a real steel shooting background, and working around the industry of industrial deafness, I have an acute appreciation for the need of hearing protection, especially given the mutual enthusiasm for pyrotechnics within airsoft. The Jack Pyke electronic ear defenders found their way into my kit bag as an optional spare piece of kit, mainly for if...

Warriors Patrol Belt Kit (PBK)

Warriors Patrol Belt Kit (PBK) Words Dave Porter This month I’ve had the pleasure of testing Warrior Assault System’s Patrol Belt Kit, or ‘PBK’. Until this point, I've never strayed from my typical plate carrier setup or the occasional light-weight chest rig, so this was a first for me, but I've owned several pieces of WAS gear, so I had high expectations in terms of quality and functionality, and let me tell you, the PBK did not disappoint. The PBK is insanely...
