Sorry folks for the delay. We have a new layout artist and we're trying to make some changes to the layout so hence the delay. This time we have a female layout artist so you'll notice some feminine touc­h to it. We hope you'll like it.  Also some issues with net connections, as we work as a virtual team spread-out in three continents. But still no excuse for us, or else we'll have to show our bums at the grocery store.

Fulton Armory Enhanced M14 SOPMOD Systems

Submitted by Gungho Cowboy on Wed, 06/04/2008 - 17:10

If the M14 Enhanced Battle Rifle (EBR) replicas last year got us talking, this one will make us more on our toes. I am looking forward to the day that airsoft makers fabricate the Fulton Armory M14 SOPMOD Systems, even just a conversion­ kit. ­This is actually a collaboration of Fulton Armory and Troy Industries and resulted into the Modular Combat Rifle that is comprised of different configurations for designated marksman role (DMR), close quarters, and for sniper roles. I like the look of the MCR and just wishing that they're lighter than the M14 EBR.

RedWolf Review: Western Arms M4A1 CQB-R

Submitted by OptimusPrime on Fri, 05/30/2008 - 07:20

­Does the M4A1 really need an introduction? Maybe not, but since some of the readers may have been born when the carbine was adopted, a briefing may be in order. The M4A1 is a self-loading select-fire carbine var­iant of the M16 rifle, both based on the AR-15 archetype developed by Eugene Stoner in the 50's. Ever since the first M16 was brought into service, the rifle has been updated to improve on the original design.

RS Wiki: The Glock Pistol Family

Submitted by Gungho Cowboy on Mon, 05/26/2008 - 17:08

Time now to grab another entry from Wikipedia to post here. Now, I am posting an entry on the Glock line of pistols, made by Glock GmbH, the Austrian company established by Gaston Glock. These are known for sporting polymer-frames which some claim you can put a Glock pistol through a metal detector and it won't be detected, but as far as I know, it remains to be proven and it remains to be an urban legend.

Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots

Submitted by Gungho Cowboy on Fri, 05/23/2008 - 06:04

­Listen up troops! This time ditch the Nintendo Wii that you use for your Red Steel Game. If you think that you don't have a good reason to buy the Sony Playstation 3 because of its hefty price, now you've got one. The Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of Patriots is coming out in June 2008. One of the best games of all time, and only for just the Playstation series, Metal Gea­r is given the perfect scores by testers and games journalists from all over.

Sneak Preview: King Arms British L1A1 SLR

Submitted by OptimusPrime on Wed, 05/21/2008 - 08:19

Well, well, we have the upcoming King Arms, the British L1A1 SLR (Self Loading Rifle). This arrived at our doorstep over a week ago and we've been testing and taking it down slowly by our gunsmith, Bulletproofmike, who seems to have fallen in love it with it and we might have to pry it off his hands. What we can tell is that it's solidly built, and more, it has an electric blowback function which seems to be the in thing this year as more and more replicas are slowly going to have this feature.

X-Fire/PDI Japan at 2008 Hobby Show Shizuoka

Submitted by OptimusPrime on Mon, 05/19/2008 - 07:15
X-Fire/PDI-Japan, with Tomo at the lead of their group, filed this report that we copied fully from their website.  The highlight here is the release of the Tokyo Marui AKS74U that features the same blowback features such as the TM AK74MN.  Another TM is the M4 PMC which is a limited edition, so those who are into limited copies better reserve one for yourselves right away.  We're saying too much now, let's let Tomo say the rest of story when they were at 08 Hobby Show Shizuoka.
