OPSEC Airsoft Dictionary

Term:
Billboard

Definition:
1) A player who fixes an obscene amount of patches to their gear.
2) A player who sports multiple patches, shirts, hats, etc from airsoft companies they have no official association with.

Example:
"Take a look at <players name>, could he fit any more patches on that ruck? What a billboard."

Background:
Patches are fun and a conversation piece, but when every inch of velcro is covered by a patch, you’ve gone too far and look like a douche. Moreover, you are allowed to love your favorite retailer/site/shop/etc but when you start sporting multiple pieces of company swag you have just become a walking advert. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but be sure you are well aware of what you have become… their free billboard.

Western Arms Punisher 1911 GBB Pistol

The SOCOM Gear Punisher 1911 now has competition with a version released by Western Arms and available at eHobby Asia for US$495.00 which of course is a steeper price to pay. The grip panels sport a black logo rather than a golden one in the SOCOM Gear version. But if you prefer the Western Arms over the SOCOM Gear, then be prepared to pay more.

“The 1911 pistol is considered by many gun collectors and veterans to be the greatest self-loading pistol ever made and the grandfather of the modern handgun, which despite its age is still used alongside modern pistols today. Designed by John Moses Browning in 1910 with patent dates going as far back as 1897, the .45 caliber pistol was adopted into the U.S. military arsenal February 14, 1911. Browning had combined traits of his former pistols and built a prototype around the recently-developed .45 ACP round. The end result was the M1911.

Frank Castle (Thomas Jane) uses a pair of heavily customized M1911A1s as his main sidearms in the film.

* Western Arms Punisher 1911 Airsoft GBB Pistol
* Western Arms SHIBUYA CUSTOM WORKS (Hi-Spec Ver.3 – Fixed Hop-Up) Airsoft Replica

GunFire: Zeta Labs Mosin available NOW!

Source: Airsoft News.eu
Bartek from GunFire, kindly sent the introduction of the Zet Labs Mosin-Nagant to, the EU market. Mosin is arguably one of the most bad-ass weapons ever made, at least as far as the original goes, think, rude, crude but effective and don’t forget, no safety! More as usual, right bellow:

This time I would like to update airsoftnews readers about unique Zeta Lab Mosin Nagant M1944 used by the armed forces of the Russian Empire, the Soviet Union and various other nations. The replica is now available in Gunfire shop!

Zeta Lab Mosin Nagant M1944


Replica of Mosin is made of wood and metal components. Body and barrel cover are made of wood while sights, outer barrel, chamber, trigger set, magazine and other elements are made of metal. Sliding bayonet is made of durable ABS and can be disassembled.

Maint Topic: Starting an Airsoft Team

So I have been getting bombarded on the forum and via the contact forms by airsofters asking how to get an airsoft team started. I didn’t really give it much thought initially, but come to think of it, for a new player wanting to get his own team rolling, it is a bit daunting to get a handle on a jumping off point. I, like many team leaders I would imagine, just kind of bumbled our way around getting a team going when we started out. Trial and error is the best learning method, but if I can help fellow ‘softers avoid going through what I did, then rock on.

After all these years, I have learned a thing or two and with the players making all the requests, I took the opportunity to write an article over on my personal website with a few pointers that I think would help players get their new team in the right direction. Here is an excerpt from the article to wet your taste buds with the full article available here.

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.

Main Topic: Changing Scenery

So be it for work, school or to escape the law, you’re moving. Airsoft is such a community-centered game that moving can really throw you off your game in a big way. From new playing styles, game types, retailers, fields, personalities and drama/politics, the stress of moving for the airsofter can be a little overwhelming. Tonight, through the wisdom of 1st hand experience, we’re going to do our best to guide you through your airsoft move and hopefully take some of the stress out the mess you just stepped in!

Backstory

In the volatile and unstable region of Crapstakistan, a new threat has emerged. The Democratically elected government of Crapstakistan has been toppled and a Russian backed dictator has taken power. This represents a grave threat to US security interests in the region and US Rangers and Special Operations have been mobilized to answer this threat.

Backed by Russian commandos, the Crapstakistani President has vowed to spill “rivers of blood” to any westerner who dares tread on what he refers to as “sacred soil.” The stage is set, the pieces are in motion who will prevail…..
Factions

US Rangers – 3 color desert, despat, multi-cam, acu, choco-chip, digital desert.

Insurgent/Soviets– Woodland, tiger stripe, marpat, od, flektarn, digital woodland, civilian or green civilian mix.

ALL PROCEEDS FROM THE EVENT WILL BE DONATED TO TYLER STANFIELD (BLACK EAGLES DELTA) AND HIS FAMILY TO ASSIST WITH COSTS IN HIS FIGHT AGAINST CANCER

While this is not a full on milsim event, this is not an open play either. The day will comprise of multiple scenarios ranging from an hour to two hours in length all linked to the central theme. We are not limiting magazines for this one to encourage as many players as possible to attend.

We hope to see you there as this promises to be a day of airsoft that we all can be proud of!

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).[1] The rifle is also known as the CGA5, Bofors Carl Gustav Automatic carbine 5.

Tiger111hk: Aimpoint Micro T-1 replica

Source: Airsoft-News.eu
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…

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.”

We saw a “Ready to Fight” Magpul FPG with holster package, sans the KSC Glock pistol and now here’s another “complete” one from WGC, though this would be a better package since it has the KSC glock already installed, you just need to purchase the Beta Project FPG holster from somewhere else. This costs US$403.00 shipping costs not included.

OPSEC Airsoft Dictionary

Pouch Mule

Definition: A player who prepares for every possible on or off field situation by unnecessarily overloading their primary rig with pouches and equipment.

Example: “Check out Doug, he must have every inch of MOLLE covered with a pouch on that CIRAS!”

Main Topic: The Gear Sweet Spot

Gearing up for a game or event is an intensely personal and almost "zen-like' moment for the dedicated milsim player. That fact alone nearly nullifies this entire main topic as it's OPSEC's official stance that you make your own game (guns & gear included), but we have come across quite a few milsimers when hitting the field that either put too much thought into their gear (Pouch Mules) or just didn't do enough (SOCOMers).  In this episode, we want to cover both sides of the coin and do our part in helping players find that gear-sweet-spot… light enough to maneuver but equipped enough to handle most field situations.

Points of Interest:

  • Airsoft is a fashion show
  • Ops vs pickup games
  • How long are you in the field?
  • How close are you to the vehicles/staging area?
  • Weather
  • Chest rig vs Plate carrier
  • Weaponry
  • Hydration
  • Mission Set
  • Your role?
  • Secondary/Backup setup.
