Kalashnikov Concern Goes After Cybergun & Russian Airsoft Stores

Last week, Kalashnikov Concern, the Russian company that produces various firearms, including the famous AK rifles and other weapons systems started moving to protect is intellectual properties in Russia, especially the use of the Kalashnikov name in airsoft products. Formerly known as Izhmash Concern, which is the legendary Russian defense manufacturer that the father of the AK-47 worked for, Kalashnikov concern looks like it will be making a full court press into the airsoft market.

Special Feature: IWA Outdoor Classics 2017 Day 4 Report

Work hard, party hard. Do that for four days and you will have a hard time getting up in the morning.  On the final day of the IWA Outdoor Classics 2017, that was the case for me. Eventually, I got up and took a show at around 0800H. It was a good thing that we started packing our things yesterday and the small bits were chucked into the bags and off we went back to Nuremberg Messe.

Special Feature: IWA Outdoor Classics 2017 Day 3 Report

We greeted the morning of the third day of the IWA Outdoor Classics 2017 much more refreshed than the previous day for having decided not to party hard that night. We had to make sure of that since the third day is always the best day for the airsoft industry at this event as most of us get to meet and greet each other in one room since it is also the Airsoft Meetup.

Special Feature: IWA Outdoor Classics 2017 Day 2 Report

I had to wake up early to start writing the first day report of the IWA Outdoor Classics 2017. As I have mentioned, a slow uplink for the broadband connection at the hotel, I do really need to be at the Nuremberg Messe early so I can upload the photos on the Popular Airsoft Facebook Page.

Special Feature: IWA Outdoor Classics 2017 Day 1 Report

It was an early start for us at the IWA Outdoor Classics 2017. Masterchief and I got up early to go Nuremberg Messe for the first day of the trade expo just to beat the morning crowds. We were really early as we got our press passes and found a closed press room that was to open 30 minutes later rather than 0800H. So off to the nearby cafeteria and waited until the press room got opened.

RolaTube: A Gaffer Tape-Like Strip That Turns Into A Rigid Tube

During the Army Expeditionary Warrior Experiments 2017 (AEWE 2017) , photos of the RolaTube got our interest. The RolaTube they use is a roll-up mast that has VHF and UHF embedded. Once deployed as a radio mast, a soldier needs to just it into a radio. Since it is a roll-up mast, it can be easily packed away.
