The GPM92 Pistol is G&G’s newest take on Gas Blow Back Pistols. This gun has their new Whirl Cylinder Valve which helped reduce the cool down effect. The prototype was delivered in a very nice Hard Shell Case and included with the gun is a speed loader. Michael was able to test fire this gun and he was able to get through 3-4 magazines of BBs before having to refill on green gas (Video coming soon). The gun had a full metal construction with plastic grips. Over all the gun had a solid build and performed very well in our shooting test. Check out the video below for more info!
Very rarely does a gun so fully encapsulate the attention span of the airsoft community in the way the Krytac Vector has done. From when it was first unveiled in January of 2016, to now as it’s release looms upon us (and some lucky preorder customers already have theirs in hand) the entirety of the airsoft hive brain has been locked in on this awesome game changing replica. We wanted to know what makes this gun such a hot ticket item. Is it because the style is so unique? Could it be the performance possibilities that have us all so intrigued?

A common question we get asked is, “What’s the best weight BB for my airsoft gun?” The answer is: It’s complicated!
In the video below, we take a look at the most common BB weights used by most airsoft players and run them through a stock G&G Armament Combat Machine. Though every gun will perform a bit differently, this makes drawing general conclusions quite simple. The .20g BB is by far and large the generic industry standard for many users for its reliability and widespread availability. The round is consistent and performs well in many different guns, making it a great all-around choice for AEGs that may be stock or shooting within CQB FPS ranges. You’ll not want to go any lighter than this round for your rifle, as generally most .12g BBs are poorly made and can have casting seams that will damage your gun’s hop up unit.
When your gun is shooting a bit closer to the FPS ranges typically associated with outdoor play, you may want to consider anywhere from a .25-.32g BB. Though you’ll lose velocity of the round due to the heavier projectile, this range of BBs typically produces a more stable flight pattern and increased overall accuracy at range. The .28g BBs used in our video scored the most hits out of all rounds tested, offering optimal accuracy and range from the maximum engagement distance. These BBs are also quite popular for airsoft LMGs at events that allow them to shoot above normal Rifle FPS limits.
Generally speaking, .34s, .43s and beyond are usually reserved for sniper or marksman platforms that have been upgraded extensively, as the extreme FPS these airsoft guns produce are generally unstable with anything lower weight than that. The stock Combat Machine we used in testing was not able to produce enough backspin via the hop up for these rounds to be a viable option in any scenario.
Time and time again, players will ask us for our favorite guns. Many times that begins with a long list of your standard fare of rifles; be it the M4, the AK-47, or the G36 style of airsoft gun. Often, these guns are purely separated by their external characteristics and perform identically to one another. Shotguns have always managed to differentiate themselves via their typically tri-shot performance; however the often cheap materials have always kept them from reaching “must-have” status. The JAG Arms Shotguns are here to settle that score, and prove once and for all that airsoft shotguns are here to outperform your expectations and steal that must-have slot away from some of your more coveted airsoft replicas.
JAG Arms TS Shotgun
The first thing to cover about the JAG shotguns is their quality externals. Each model in the line has full metal external construction on the receiver itself, the barrel, and the magazine tube (although this is cosmetic as on other tri-shot guns) with polymer pumps on all models. The full stock models utilize a polymer stock as well, which house the gas cartridge, while the collapsible stock models sit a plastic LE style stock on a metal buffer tube, which serves as your gas chamber which you fill via the valve located on the buffer tube itself. Each model features a metal picatinny rail to attach optics while the TSS and SP models also feature a metal side saddle for holding additional shells (and if that weren’t enough, even include a few extra shells in the box as well). It is rounded off with a safety switch nestled quietly behind the trigger in a traditional position for a shotgun.
Proper cleaning and maintenance of your airsoft gun’s inner barrel is one of the most important factors in keeping the gun in tip-top fighting shape, but is also overlooked quite often!
Airsoft guns utilize smooth bore inner barrels which sit inside the outer barrel, and can accumulate dust, dirt and grime quite quickly through normal use and play. Dirty barrels are the most common causes of FPS drop and poor accuracy. Obviously, the projectiles we fire are spheres, and the inner barrels have no rifling or other stabilization features of their real-steel counterparts. This means that keeping your barrel clean and free from debris is an absolute must!
