Sometimes, subtly takes a back seat and you need to go loud. And nothing goes loud like an airsoft grenade. Grenades and flashbangs are an efficient and viscerally enjoyable way to disorientate and take out a whole group of enemies at once.
Ah, the age old question: Which is better? The M16 or AK47?
It’s a question that’s been raging since the question of whether an AK47 is better than an M14 battle rifle was soundly answered in favour of the Kalashnikov during the Vietnam War.
Jing Gong G36c – £145
The JG G36 has been around for years and many like myself started of with one for their first gun, but lets look at why.
First of all it’s and inexpensive, durable ABS plastic rifle with lots of potential for customisation, for example you can change the standard skeletal style stock to the KV shark stock or even get the M4 stock adapter to attach a stock tube and new stock. This is ideal for those that don’t like the standard folding stock aspect of the G36 and want the comfortable feel of a crane or viper stock. Magazines are readily available for these in both high capacity (470 round) and mid capacity (100-140 round) magazines, available from MAG, Cyma, JG, Classic Army and Tokyo Marui. Another customisable aspect of the G36 is the M4 magazine adapter allowing you to use M4 type magazines.
Hop-up (or High Operation Power Up) is the back-spin put on airsoft BBs to increase their range via something called the Magnus Effect. By applying backspin to a projectile, you get better range and better accuracy.
The JG Bar 10 (or VSR 10) is arguably one of the best base airsoft guns in the market for upgrading to an ultimate bolt action spring sniper rifle. Starting with the externals, the Bar 10 features a rubberised texture body, instantly giving it one up on the Tokyo Marui VSR 10 which has a basic ABS plastic body. It has sling points on both the front and rear of the lower body with the 20mm bipod rail readily available. The upper half is full metal like the TM one and comes with a 20mm picatinny rail for sights and scopes. Oh and it even comes with a 3-9×40 scope! The scope has a nice, clear crosshair and also comes with the scope rings necessary to mount the scope on.
