RedWolf Review: VFC MK16 Mod0 SCAR-L

The latest feature review, courtesy of RedWolf Airsoft. This covers  the latest FN SCAR-L offering in the market, the VFC MK16 Mod0 SCAR-L which they have this verdict..."Overall we think this is the best SCAR-L replica on the market at the moment. Both the detailing of the AEG itself, as well as the quality and the amount of accessories make this a high value model. Take-down is realistic, each step is just like on the real one!"

Readings on Guerilla Warfare

Serious military readers, political scientist, and military historians always consider the War of the Flea as the most important war since it became the primary  form of warfare from the second half of the 20th Century until now.

The War of the Flea, in a nutshell, is guerilla warfare.

WebSighting: TEAM URNA

While browsing around in search of airsoft information while killing time, I stumbled upon the website of Team URNA, who are based in the Czech Republic.

Going through the pages, I was impressed, and I thought it deserves to be mentioned as it is a very much unique group.

We're Baaaaaaack!!!

Here we go again.... Welcome to Popular Airsoft (Again)! It's been more than a week since the site went down due to some snafu that happened to our site, which we can now tell that the problem was not really the way we run our website, or how we maintain our own dedicated server. It was a problem that our hosting provider had brought upon themselves, and affected our service which should not have happened in the first place. This caused us a lot of inconvenience to our schedules and to our valuable readers.


Advisory: Regular Publishing Resumes on 17 October 2007

This is our final update on migrating our site to our new hosting provider. We all thank you for your patience waiting for us. Just a little bit over 24 hours of waiting more and we'll be back posting all the latest news and features that you want to read. We are just making the final adjustments and ensuring that all files and content that have been made for this site will appear properly on Wednesday.

RedWolf Airsoft Review: Real Sword Type 56

Due to the political circumstances and events after the second world war, the Soviet Union and People's Republic of China were friendly neighbours to each other. A lot of technological advancements from the former were adopted in China, most notably (from the viewpoint of this article), the Kalashnikov AK-47.
