Jet, from DesertFox Airsoft
, makes an incredible shot at approximately 220 feet from point to point. This occurred at John Lu’s Army Birthday Combat Experience where Jet had taken up a position on top of a hill. Be sure to check out this timestop to see that even zoomed in, the camera can barely pick up the target, as that is how far away they were. The specifications for Jet’s AEG at that particular event were:
Frank, head tech at Airsoft GI, also takes some time to explain how the Magic Box Miracle Barrels Work. The key with this particular barrel is how the BB sits inside of a steel ramp allowing the BB to make contact at 3 points when being given backspin. This means that the BB is given a more consistent backspin with little side to side variation, which results in a more consistent shot.

The Umarex H&K Mp5 has just hit the airsoft market. This particular airsoft gun is manufactured by the venerable Vega Force Company, which is well known for their fantastic metal body kits and their solid internals. This full metal airsoft gun features a full metal body with properly stamped trademarks and polymer furniture, as is the standard with VFC AEG’s. The real key however, is that this AEG features a mechanical three round burst. This means that with every trigger pull, the gun will fire three solid rounds before requiring you to reset the trigger. No other AEG on the market currently has this mechanical 3 round burst feature.
Mechanical three round burst is a phenomenally huge step in airsoft realism innovation as that means that all guns that would standard run a 3 round burst mechanism (MP5’s, M-16’s, SG550’s) will be able to boast this feature without the need for a MOSFET unit installed. 3 Round burst is a great alternative to full auto when the user is attempting to conserve ammunition in a situation where single fire is not feasible but full auto is excessive.
Currently, Airsoft GI is carrying two versions of this particular VFC Mp5. The MP5A4 variant features a full stock, which is the iconic design used by many counter terrorist teams throughout the world. The MP5A5 features a collapsible stock which makes it great for close quarter fighting. For VFC, both of these guns are very reasonably priced, as an equivalent ambidextrous M4 would cost much more than this.
MP5A4 – 304.99
MP5A5 – 319.99
The famous Travis Haley takes some time to speak about airsoft’s capabilities as a training tool for live firearms. Travis Haley is a veteran Force Reconnaissance Marine with 15 years in field. He then served as a security contractor before joining Magpul & their training divison, Magpul Dynamics. Travis Haley is a leader in strategic and tactical shooting, and is a perfect example of a pioneer in shooting techniques.
In this video, he demonstrates the advantages of using an airsoft gun to train for real steel. Specifically, Travis Haley is using a Tokyo Marui Recoil Shock SCAR-L and M4. TM Recoil Shock AEG’s are some of the most advanced airsoft guns that attempt to replicate a live firearm as much as possible. There are a multitude of advantages to using these sort of airsoft guns for firearm training. Haley lists a number of advantages: (more…)
