OPSEC Airsoft News
Every year we look forward to one show in particular, the zombie show. Not because we get to talk about our undead fetish, but because we get to argue and almost get into fights over fictional ghouls. This year is no different. Details are as follows:
Date: Friday, October 29th, 2010
Time: 6p PDT / 9p EDT
Discussion: Forum Thread
We may make this our first Zombie “remote” show, but that remains to be seen. Check the forum thread for details and updates as progress is made or if you have any content suggestions, etc.

G&G Armament New Releases
The Rk 95 Tp, Finnish: Rynnäkkökivääri 95 Taittoperä or “assault rifle 95 folding stock”, (known commercially as the M95) is a 7.62mm Finnish assault rifle adopted by the Finnish Defence Forces in the 1990s in relatively small numbers.
The Ak 5 (sometimes AK5) is the Swedish version of the FN FNC assault rifle with certain modifications, mostly to adapt the weapon to the Swedish climate. The Ak 5 is the service rifle of the Swedish Armed Forces. Ak 5 is an abbreviation of automatkarbin 5 (literal translation “automatic carbine 5”, “automatic carbine” is the Swedish term for assault rifle). The rifle is also known as the CGA5, Bofors Carl Gustav Automatic carbine 5. The Ak 5 replaced the Ak 4 (licensed G3 copy) in Swedish service
MadBull: The only licensed M200
Simon sent a reminder that they will be releasing the M200 shortly and he’s not holding back on words of greatness:

Tiger111hk: Aimpoint Micro T-1 replica
Or so the good folks ad Tiger111hk would like us to believe. The T-1 from Aimpoint is one of the smallest and lightest and certainly one of the best red dot sights out there. The main reason behind it is the no non sense approach, which means keep it simple and reliable. But ACM manufacturers would not be what they are if the did not try to “improve” a few things they copy. So Tiger111hk now offers sort of a copy of the T-1 but with different reticules, as if you actually need them in such a small package at such small ranges… They also have a range of “USMC Radio Pouches” MOLLE pouches in all assorted colors and camo patterns…
The smallest package provide the same performance for every aiming purpose, Small Enough to be used on Any Rifles, Carbines, Shotguns, Submachine guns and Handguns, Also be backup sight on top of magnifying scopes, night vision, or thermal imaging optics, different of Brightness Control for each Illuminated Red / Green Dot, Anti Reflex Optical Coating, built-in mount for All 20mm Rail, Power By 3V CR2032 Battery (not include).
Length : 65mm
Magnification : 1x
Built Material : Aluminum
eHobby Asia: Spring Loaded Pistol Magazine Carrier
Just as these kind of magazine holders became available and known to the general public in real firearms circles, the ACM copy/paste machine strikes again and eHobby Asia are one of the first to offer it to the airsoft community:
Spring Loaded Mag Pouch
– Able to store Double Stack Type Magazine (e.g. GLOCK / USP / P226) or Single Type Magazine (e.g. M1911)
– Attach on MOLLE Platform / Belt
– Mounting plate can be unscrewed and repositioned for horizontal or vertical carry
Jedianten: Lonex HiCap magazine
edianten is a small Taiwanese shop that seems to offer things for the avid airsofter, that are somewhat more different, or just plain harder to get… Hui sent in a short introduction of their latest new product in the shop, it’s the Lonex HiCap magazine that winds a bit differently to say the least. They asked we post their Facebook acc link instead of their official website, which is in Chinese only. Find out more about it bellow:
…it is a quick pull magazine, not traditional magazine. All you need is to pull the wire about 10 times to load instead of spending too much time turning the gear.
Marushin Super Blackhawk Revolvers
Source: Popular Airsoft
“My! My! What a long one you’ve got there!” Would be the reaction of others when they see you fondling, errr, handling the Marushin Super Blackhawk Revolvers with the 8mm X-Cartridge. I can only imagine that it would also be a cap gun so that it’ll be even more impressive with smoke rising outside of the muzzle when you fire it. BUt then the length is impressive enough as you get 10.5 or 7.5inches depending on how manly you want to be. Colour is the same as the Red Hawk, you either select silver or black.
HSGI Double Decker “TACO” Magazine Pouch
Source: Popular Airsoft
No need to add Tabasco on this, it’s hot enough by the looks alone. You can get this at SKDTac for US$40.00… “Double Decker ‘TACO’, Modular single rifle and pistol magazine pouch. Just like its older brother this unique pouch will hold more types of mags than just the AR series of mags. Not only will it hold AR type mags including P-MAGS, it will also hold Magazines for the AK, FAL, M14, SR25, M1A1, G3, Saiga 12, and more….. even some types of radios. It will also hold the large Flash bangs and the M-18 Smoke grenades.
This mag pouch measures 3 inches in width. Made of Cordura, Kydex and shock-cord, it is silent when stuck against and while extracting the mag. The ‘TACO’ maintains a positive grip of the mag on which is adjustable and does not need use of any other securing systems unless desired upon by user preference. Webbing tabs are sewn in on the top for use of “over the top” bungee retainers if desired (not included). Additional loop Velcro is sewn in the inside of the Rifle pouch if the user wishes to use adhesive backed hook Velcro on his magazine body for added security. But not only will this pouch hold ANY Rifle magazine, it will hold ANY Pistol Magazine. Single Stack or Double Stack. Made in the USA and is covered by the HSGI Lifetime warranty.”

airsoft scenario games? The Firefight! Battle Deck is a drop-in
