Review of the New APS Catapult Sights

You know – I saw these a while back and thought they were pretty cool looking. Now that I’ve got them on my KWA SR-10, I can say I’m glad I bought them.

You can get these guys at Evike.com for $30 (for both front and rear rights) – here’s the link: http://www.airsoftpost.com/product_info.php?products_id=31762

Now let’s take a look at these guys up close and personal.

First off, they are made of a nice metal. I don’t know exactly what it is, but it’s solid and the finish is quite nice as well. Secondly, they are QD sights so with a twist of the knob, they are off.

The rear sight (seen below here) is kind of like a “peep” sight you would find on a PDW or a SCAR. In general, I was not a huge fan of these, but after reviewing the WE PDW and now seeing these guys, I don’t mind them.

The rear sight folds down completely (as is shown here) and then pops up as well. The knob on the right-hand side of the rear sight allows you to adjust it as needed for windage. Unfortunately, they are not really ‘fully adjustable’, but they will do the job for most airsofters I think.


Here you can see the front sight. This one can pop up to two different settings, meaning it can be totally down, part way up, and then completely up.

Here’s a shot of them on my KWA SR-10.

And looking down the barrel.

I like these guys. They certainly are one of the most unique sights out there, and for only $30 a set, it’s a pretty great deal.

Rear sight flipped up…

and flipped down.

OVERALL:
Looks – 9. Very unique and just over a great addition to an AEG.
Build – 8 – solid metal construction, the fact that they are QD is nice as well.
Function – 7 – a little disappointing that they are just partially adjustable, but they’ll do the job I think.

Keep on firin’,
Carp

APS : Kit Carabine pour Glock 17/18C

Emboitant le pas au Magpul FPG, les kits de conversion carabine pour pistolets semblent encore attirer l’intérêt des fabricants. Redwolf vient en effet de diffuser cette nouvelle photo de celui en préparation du côté d’APS (déjà visible sur l’article sur le Toys & Games Fair 2011 posté hier). Nous apprenons donc qu’il sera disponible en deux couleurs, et sera compatible avec les Glock 17 et 18C de chez Tokyo Marui ou KSC.

HK Toys & Games Fair 2011

Petit tour en Asie pour découvrir quelques nouveautés présentées lors de l’édition 2011 du HK Toys & Games Fair, un salon dédié aux jouets et à toutes sortes de hobbies qui se déroule chaque année à Hong Kong. Commençons par APS, qui présentait une SVD Gaz Blowback, un kit de conversion style Roni pour Glock ainsi que de nouveaux chargeurs mid-cap pour M4. Sur le stand Cybergun étaient visibles quelques mitrailleuses, un RPK, le P90 GBB (fabriqué par WE mais qui sera distribué par Cybergun qui possède la licence FN) ainsi que le fameux 1911 Inokatsu – qui rejoindront prochainement le catalogue du distributeur. Enfin le nouveau venu Ultra-Force débarque avec quelques lance-grenades 40mm.

This is made in Hong Kong, and comes with a hi-capacity magazine. You can get this from Airsoft Panda for US$152, shipping costs not yet included. Notice the club-foot stock in the photo and we wonder if this is standard in all their packages.
