So, You’re Buying Your First AEG…

Submitted by Brahma on Wed, 07/16/2008 - 19:40

ELECTRIC AIRSOFT GUNS or Automatic Electric Guns (AEGs) are the most popular weapons found in most airsoft skirmishes in the world today. AEGs are battery-operated, as the name implies, and rely on an electric motor (similar to those found in remote control cars) to drive a gearbox assembly with a pneumatic piston. These guns are capable of full automatic fire at rates comparable to those of real-steel automatic weapons. They are typically powered by rechargeable battery packs.

Once You Go Black, You Never Go Back!

Submitted by Brahma on Mon, 07/07/2008 - 17:24

Most people identify a police operative, SWAT or SAF in particular, by the distinguishable all-black uniform. When we think CQB or CQC, we think black. But police operations do not have a monopoly in using black uniforms. Special Forces and Navy SEALS often use black, especially in clandestine missions. In most airsoft arenas, we see players donning the ever-popular SWAT get-up even in “jungle” terrains, and I have yet to see some members of Teams Zero and Atlas wear otherwise.
