Custom Gun Rails

Custom Gun Rails | Airsoft News by Operator7 | Scoop.it
Here's a trend that might be just about to hit the Airsoft market: the Custom Gun Rails. There are personalizable gun rail covers, that are produced by a company  founded in 2011 by a former Green Beret and based in Texas. Their rail covers are made of aluminium and laser engraved, but they also have PVC rail covers. Some of the most popular and iconic rail covers bare the US flag, the Texas flag, or even the 2nd Amendment. Stunning and great looking that's how define them, but I'm yet to have seen these on Airsoft guns, so if you have one, do share your photo with us! For more on Custom Gun Rails, visit their website.

Trident LMG Limited Prototype

Trident LMG Limited Prototype | Airsoft News by Operator7 | Scoop.it
Here is a new AEG brought to life by Kriss,  the company that creates real steel firearms such as the popular Kriss Vector. Another successful real steel company making its way to the Airsoft market, making this an increasingly popular trend among gun manufacturers. The new prototype is based on the M4 platform but its clearly stretching its limits to reach the LMG status that many try to achieve by adding a box magazine . The benefits in such solution are obvious, its a lightweight and familiar approach for those who are used to work with the M4 platform. And of course Kritac had to work the internals so they would cope with the task: Internally, the Trident LMG features a reinforced 8mm ball bearing gearbox with integrated MOSFET to regulate electronic signals and to protect the trigger contacts. The corners of the gearbox that surround the cylinder feature a smooth Read More…

FERFRANS CRD Muzzle Device System

FERFRANS CRD Muzzle Device System | Airsoft News by Operator7 | Scoop.it
Extremely useful on real steel and great looking for Airsoft, just waiting for an Airsoft company to come and produce it, the FERFRANS CRD Muzzle Device System has as main objective the reduction to zero of lateral concussion. Lateral concussion is the air blast produced by an AR muzzle when firing and can be quite strong if you are standing next to someone who is shooting. Plus if the soldier is on the ground, the amount of dirt and gases will significantly reduced making it easier for the operator to remain focused on target. The following video illustrates clearly the benefits of the CRD system.     We believe its only a matter of time before the FERFRANS CRD Muzzle Device System arrives to the Airsoft.

ARES AMOEBA Honey Badger Review

ARES AMOEBA Honey Badger Review | Airsoft News by Operator7 | Scoop.it
Here is my latest review on the ARES Amoeba Honey Badger, published on A.C.E.: I was lucky enough to get my hands on one of the first units to arrive in the UK of the new ARES Amoeba AM-013DE. This is another very exclusive and unique gun brought from the real steel world, and probably as many of you might know made quite an appearance in Call of Duty Ghosts. The original Honey Badger was made by AAC or Advance Armament Corporation, made its first public appearance back in 2012 and was initially created by request of the special operations community who was looking for a familiar gun system to effectively replace guns such as the Heckler&Koch MP5 and other similar PDW’s. This new system had to be lightweight, prepared for sub sonic round for suppressed sound and flash, reliable .30 caliber compatible,                low recoil and have the ability to Read More…

The most COMPACT PRECISION RIFLE on the planet

The most COMPACT PRECISION RIFLE on the planet | Airsoft News by Operator7 | Scoop.it
The claim is not ours but rather from the Utah based company Desert Tech. For a mere 3k you can have a DTA SRS-A1 Rifle in black or Flat Dark Earth, or at least you can start here as this doesn't include the barrel, bolt nor magazine. The Stealth Recon Scout A1 (SRS-A1) is the most versatile Sniper Rifle system in the world. It is nearly a foot shorter than conventional sniper rifles, maintains 1/2 MOA or better accuracy with DTM Ammunition, and can be easily adapted to individual mission requirements by changing the weapon’s caliber and length. Whether a police sniper is shooting 50 yards or a military sniper is shooting a mile the SRS offers unrivaled flexibility in a package shorter than the M16 battle rifle.   This means however that this platform is extremely configurable and can be adapted to most shooter profiles as well as most intervention scenarios.

TALON Grips for MAGPUL MOE AR

TALON Grips for MAGPUL MOE AR | Airsoft News by Operator7 | Scoop.it
Here is a good alternative to stippling your pistol grip: the TALON Grips for MAGPUL MOE AR. This a kind of a paper sand wrap that you stick around a Magpul MOE pistol grip, which has as final aim to improve the grip you have on your gun. The wrap comes is available in two options: granulate and rubber textures and offers full side panel coverage, full coverage under the trigger guard, and high coverage on the backstrap. They haven't developed an Airsoft version yet, and due to the size of the MOE TPS grips being slightly wider in diameter, its almost certain that there aren't compatible, but who knows in the future they might start considering the Airsoft community, or you can just try and mimic these wraps at home!
