Who Needs Gas? A Closer Look at CM.030 and DE M81 Ver. 2 AEPs

An automatic electric pistol (AEP) is a smaller-frame AEG that runs on a 7.2V battery. Its internals are shrunk down in order to fit in a smaller frame—such as a pistol or small machine pistol—giving a lower muzzle velocity than a stock AEG. Arguably, they are more reliable than pistols that run on gas, especially in cold weather. Since the internals take up a lot of the space inside the frame of the gun, the pistols have a fixed slide and cannot be pulled back (blow back).

MP7 FACEOFF: Galaxy G-7 vs Well R-4

The MP7 is a personal defense weapon (PDW) manufactured by Heckler & Koch (H&K) and chambered for the 4.6x30mm cartridge. It was designed in conjunction with the new cartridge to meet NATO requirements published in 1989 calling for a machine pistol or submachine gun with greater effect against body armor than current models which are limited due to use of standard handgun cartridges.

To Know is to Dominate

Close Quarters Combat drills always cover several areas: detailed planning, surprise, appropriate methods of entry, speed, and violence of action.  In Milsim airsoft games, these are all considered. In non-milsim airsoft games, surprise, methods of entry, and violence of action all matter. Movement and methods are described and illustrated below. It is still best to work as a team rather than as a lonewolf in CQC --- a CQC melee is a situation that you don't want to be stuck in if you're not prepared, physically and mentally.
