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.

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.
You like sub-machine guns, but don’t always like the price tags associated with them. Now, you can have a fun, awesome gun for not a whole lot of money. WE has made this gun with a monolithic upper rail, functional iron sites, and adjustable stock. Additionally, because this gun is so cheap, you might even be able to buy two, and dual wield the gun!

“Defend the village. 30 rushing the village, with 10 defending it (I was defending the town). Slowly, enemy combatants were closing in on the last building in the center of town. Myself and my squad buddy were in the second story, running out of ammo and praying that we could find a way out. He was covering the door while I was doing an ammo count. All of a sudden I hear THUNDER B! My buddy dove onto the thunder b, taking himself out so we both wouldn’t get out. At this point it was myself vs about 8 enemy teammates, with only 1 and a half high caps left. One by one I was shooting them as they ran into the door way, when they held back and stopped. I hear GRENADE OUT!! I look and another Thunder B was rolling in, so I grabbed it and threw it back down the stairs, killing every enemy that was down the stairs and around the corner. And that gentleman, is one of my greatest airsoft stories”

Looking for a licensed awesome airsoft gun that can make your opponent cower in fear? The Umarex UZI is a great option. Because it uses Co2 instead of green gas, the recoil is much more dynamic and fun. With a side folding stock, the gun can be used to just point and shoot more precise with the stock.
