I have been using a certain CO2 pistol since just before Tim VS Bob IV/4.5 which has now become a permanent part of this Axe Man’s armory and it is…The Elite Force 1911 Tactical CO2 Blowback Pistol!
Ever since we started carrying Elite Force 1911’s at Airsoftgi.com and GItactical.com I have had many chances to fire them and every time I marvel at not only their out-of-the-box accuracy but, more importantly for me, the incredible amount of recoil. Now, the recoil might not be “revolutionary” per se, but going from green gas pistols which have significant recoil to the Elite Force 1911 felt like taking a dip in very cold water, in other words it was shocking. There is a LOT of recoil on this gun and as such it was much more fun to shoot than any other gas pistol in my armory.
Thankfully, I was able to purchase one just before Tim VS Bob IV/4.5 and thereby got quite a bit of field testing in with said pistol. One of the things I noticed while on the east coast is that my Elite Force 1911 did respond much better to colder weather than I ever would have expected my other green gas pistols to. I was able to achieve solid hits on targets further out and in colder weather than I would have ever been able to had I used a pistol running on green gas. Now, this is not to say that an Elite Force 1911 will always function in cold weather, but that it will perform above comparable green gas pistols in cold weather simply because of the fact that it is designed well and uses CO2 to function.
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.

After watching Boondock Saints, Bob has always wanted to build a six pistol loadout, and in this episode of Tactical Gear Heads, he finally did it. Bob builds a slightly modified set up of that in the movie and uses a variety of magazine and dump pouches to carry his gear. If you like what you see, be sure to check it out on our website!

This just in! We now are carrying the MP5A4 from VFC licensed by Umarex, and it is awesome. A lot of people have been asking about how the internals work, and if the 3 burst function is electrical or mechanic. We were wondering the same thing, so we broke it open to see what was up!

Two Gun Combo Deals
Airsoft GI is always looking for more ways to save you money. So, we have devised a fantastic combo: an AEG paired with the popular tri-burst shotgun! This shotgun will fire three BBs with one trigger pull. The best thing about this shotgun though, is how effective it is as backup airsoft gun, because it does not rely on batteries or gas in order to function. So, when everything goes down at the field, you can still use it as long as you’ve got BB’s to feed it. The key with this combo deal, is that we are offering both guns at a package, with a price listing that saves you close to $40. That’s over half the price of the shotgun!
Now, these shotguns will be paired with an AEG, G&G’s Combat Machine Line, KWA’s CQR Line, and Umarex’s 416/417 Line. All of these airsoft guns are rock solid, reliable, and great choices for both beginner & veteran players. We offer many choices to suit many players out there. If there is a gun that you wouldn’t mind seeing as part of a package deal, let us know in the comments below!
