Hyde Definition: PenCott-Snowdrift

Lawrence sent in the details on Hyde Definition’s latest camo pattern. It’s very much appropriate for this time of year, especially if you have snowfall and winter is not just a season on the calendar. The patterns is called Snowdrift and by the looks of ti, it could as well be very effective. More bellow…

Further showcasing the multi-environment versatility of the PenCott™ camouflage pattern, Hyde Definition announces the PenCott-Snowdrift™ colourway for snow-covered mountain, woodland and other broken- or mixed-terrain environments.

The traditional approach to “snow camouflage” has been to use a plain, solid white coloured over-garment; however, this does not take in to account the extent of shadows and other textures that actually exist in a snow-covered environment. Some historical patterns, such as the famous German “pine needles” pattern, have attempted to incorporate a disruptive element, and more recently the Finnish M/05 and USMC patterns used digital pattern geometry to improve disruption and concealment. However, by adapting the naturalistic, complex, multi-scalar, hybrid, fractal geometry of PenCott, we believe we’ve developed a superior camouflage for a wider range of snow-covered terrain than any other pattern currently available.

Airsoft International: First issue in 2011 is out…

Echo 1 M240B

Echo 1 has knocked it out of the park with their M240 Bravo, before this you would have to pay top dollar for a high quality 240B and you will still have to upgrade to make the gun ready to skirmish. Based upon the real steel M240 Bravo, the Echo 1 M240B weights nearly 22 pounds fully loaded with a battery and BBs. The Echo 1 240B features a full metal design with only plastic at the carrying handle and full stock. The detail of the M240B is spot on, the finish of the stock and metal body nearly mirrors that of the real steel. The carry handle is extremely durable and can easily take the weight of the gun without creaking or flexing. The gun features a very sturdy bipod that is barrel mounted and can fold up and tuck up beneath the hand guard. The M240B features a folding leaf sight with aperture and notch for adjustment of elevation and windage, with a standard blade style front sight. The charging handle of the M240B functions just like the real steel charging handle in that it does not return to the forward position by spring force alone, the charging handle must be manually pulled to the rear and then seated to the front again.

The Echo 1 M240B fires at 400 FPS and per second, making the M240B one of the best airsoft light machine guns on the market. The box magazine of the M240B holds around 4000 BBs so you can easily cover your teams advance in any situation. The M240B is not a gun that is made to be used as a assault carbine, the Bi-pod and large magazine makes it perfect for fortifying a position or covering a advancement. With the Echo 1 M240B at your side, there is very few things that can get in you and your teams way.

WE Airsoft: G39 Open Bolt Complete Lineup

WE is proud to announce our complete series of the G39 GBB “Open Bolt” airsoft rifles. All FOUR models are immediate available for worldwide orders. Here attached our poster in large scale for your readers to download.

G&P Stoner 63

The real steel Stoner 63, also known as the XM22/E1, was an American modular weapons system designed by Eugene Stoner in the early 1960s. It was put to use in very limited numbers in Vietnam by members of the United States Navy SEALs and several law enforcement agencies at the time. A revolutionary modular design, it could be configured in lighter assault rifle, light machine gun, lighter or heavier barrel, short commando and other variants. It was ultimately deemed too complex and phased out by the 1980s (in favor of the M16 / M4 / M249 combo).

Weight     4,620 g
Length     930 mm
Capacity     1200 rds
Power     360 fps
Battery Size     Large 9.6v
Shooting Mode     Semi, Full Auto

Made of a blend of metals and polymer, the weapon has excellent heft and balance without being too unwieldy. It uses a version 2 type gearbox with 8mm bearings and a G&P M120 high speed motor. It uses a 440mm long inner barrel putting it about midway between an M4A1 and M16.

The included box magazine holds 1200 BBs which is less than most MG boxes in airsoft (typically 2500-4000 ) but is still more than enough ammo for support use and is significatly easier to use unlike the much bulkier larger boxes found on M249s or M60s.
