The Arsenal – Zach’s Scratch Built MK18 Mod 1

Zach here. Check the vid below to see a run down on my “go-to” gun, my MK18 Mod 1. Included below will be links to products that I added to this rifle over time to increase the reliability, performance and feel of my airsoft gun to get out of it exactly what I wanted.

For those curious, the batteries I use are 11.1v lithium polymer batteries of varying MAH ratings. The battery fits inside the buffer tube with the rear wiring and connector all in place. The base external build for this gun was a Cybergun Licensed King Arms Colt M4A1.

Best High End AEG? We Have Some Contenders

A competitively priced, high end AEG used to mean a $500 price tag and up with modification still needed to achieve the desired results. This was back when rail systems hadn’t fully caught on, however. Back when Airsoft in the U.S. was still fairly young. As time continued to press forward, we saw many companies rise to the demand of the players from around the globe and prices begin to get lower as components and capabilities began to sync up at an impressive level.

As we have progressed, many of these lines have stepped up their game to put out as much technological advancement in to their series as possible. For now, we are going to cover three of these: Krytac, Elite Force, and Classic Army.

Game Type Ideas: Fox in the Chicken Coop

You don’t always need to go to fields to have a great time with airsoft or get an exciting game type. A lot of times you can get the same enjoyment from setting up private games with your friends wherever able. Especially for those of you who don’t have the necessary fields close by to deliver standing game play. I know that as much as we love our local fields, it isn’t always viable for us to get to them.

Our crowd from the day of the After Action Report

Written by Virginia resident and son of Odin, MarcusĀ  “Thor” Olsson, is his After Action Report for Augusta Airsoft, LLC. A frequent player to Ballahack Airsoft in Chesapeake, Virginia, all-around great guy, and a pillar of the airsoft community for Virginia.


The owner at Augusta Airsoft sent me an invitation to come out and play at his field located in Stuarts Draft, VA several months ago. I was finally able to make it out there yesterday…Below is my review of my experience going to and playing airsoft at Augusta Airsoft, LLC. Along with some information about the field…

For those that use navigation equipment, just punch in 152 Johnson Drive, Stuarts Draft, VA and that will get you there. For me…I live in Hampton, VA so it was just under a three (3) hour drive for me. Convenience stores and gas stations are close by the field just up the main drive and within just a few miles of the field located on the main highway.

Information About the Field:

I highly recommend anyone planning to go to Augusta Airsoft, LLC that you check out their website. There you will find their safety rules and requirements posted, as well as an electronic waiver that you must sign before you go out to the field. There is also other information so again check out their website before heading out there.
