How ASGI Marq got into Tech work

Originally written by ASGI Marq

It’s one thing to know how to install aftermarket parts. It’s another to know how they all work together. Originally, when I began playing airsoft, like most people, would go to their nearest sporting good store to purchase their airsoft gun. Little did I know that Airsoft GI was close to home. The first airsoft gun that I purchased was a JG M4A1. I have to say I was a bit surprised that the gun had a velocity of over 380 feet per second. Sure enough Airsoft Playground in El Monte had a 350 fps limit so I had to do something to drop the feet per second. Then and there I always wondered how to customize my own airsoft gun. Not just simply decreasing the muzzle velocity but by increasing rate of fire and reliability.

There were many tutorials online but where I learned and understood most is from the people I knew that already had the tech mindset. I was given tips and pointers of some basics when it came to disassembling the gun then I adapted and learned more on my own, mainly through trial and error. Some days it was very tedious, but as time went by I learned a few tips and tricks when it came to replacing other internal components. I once thought that I knew it all, however, ever since I started working at Airsoft GI, I have gained so much more knowledge from our world class tech department.

Back in Black | ASGI Bill’s Rig

Recently I was in the market for a new plate carrier as my trusty Condor Quick Release Plate Carrier was slowly wearing out from 4 years of hard abuse. After talking to Bob about his setup (as well as trying on his plate carrier) I chose the Specter MPC plate carrier in black as I have always like black gear. I understand that is may not be as hip or cool as the newest camo (cough* multicam, cough*) or anything in tan, but I has always given me the PMC/Mercenary look I try to go for. Let me tell you, this plate carrier is well worth the price, and I plan to always buy American made plate carriers from now on, as it is built like a Mack truck and can take a beating.

If you have ever seen my loadout, I carry a lot of stuff, and I mean A LOT. On the front of my plate carrier I have 3 Tactical Tailor pouches, each holding two magazines a piece, and next to those, I have two High Speed Gear TACO pouches with pistol TACO’s attached. These are my “I need to reload 5 seconds ago” pouches. On my chest I have a Condor admin pouch where I proudly wear my Defenders of Liberty patch and Team Airsoft GI Patch. Besides patches, that is where I put my wallet, keys, and any random little items.

Bill and his M16

Ever since I started airsofting, I have been a fan of the M16.  Not only because of the long barrel, and large battery space, but to me it is the Genesis of the M4 platform, the one that started it all.  My first venture into airsoft was with an AGM M16, bare bones with no upgrades. Through holidays and using my hard earned cash, I saved and bough and NC Star Red Dot scope which I super glued (yes, you read that right. It was glued) to the carry handle of my gun. You might think this would be a problem when I wanted to change the sight, but in the end I just popped it off with a little extra elbow grease and everything seemed fine externally. At this point I was running that gun with the old school Vietnam style heat shield (Mainly because I loved the movie Predator). Eventually, I purchased a Madbull Noveske Rail System and brought my gun into the “Modern Age”.

About a year later my gun sadly died and it was time for a new one. I saved enough for an ICS M16. I transferred all my accessories over to my ICS and I was ready. I felt unstoppable with that gun. I had finally learned to tech a bit and had installed different gears, a tight bore inner barrel, different bucking, etc. That rifle lasted me a solid 4 years of use and abuse. It had seen the last of its days and it was time to upgrade once again.

AAR | Assault on Antioch Scenario One

AoA_poster2-big (1)Before I get to the nitty gritty details of how Scenario One of Assault on Antioch went, I would like to thank Spartan Imports for sponsoring the event which made it possible! spartan_importsYou can check them out on Facebook by clicking on the link: Spartan Imports

I think it’s best that anyone reading this take a look at the action footage first to get a feel for how the game went as well as how AWESOME Gamepod Combat Zone really is! Since the scenario is themed around the Yellowstone caldera exploding and throwing much of the continental United States into complete anarchy, many of the objectives/scenarios have a post apocalyptic theme. As far as scenario one is concerned here is the list of objectives along with a map of the field:

Primary Objectives: Identify Objective buildings and relay that information to your team’s commanders. Objective buildings include the Water Purification Plant, Food Processing Facility, Small Arms Warehouse, and Vehicle Bay. Each building identified is worth 3 points.

Secondary Objectives: Recover Food and water in the form of water bottles and MREs and return them to your teams supply cache. Water bottles are worth 1 point and MREs are worth 2 points.
