New Kid on the Shotgun block!

Posted by Jason Price on Sunday, April 27, 2014, In : New launches 

I think we’ve all been guilty of owning a shotgun, and leaving it in the gun bag as a back-up to your AEG.

So what are the drawbacks of the shotgun compared to the AEG?

Weight of firepower, usually due to the need to cock the action is usually the biggest one, and with a 300+ fps shotty, you need big biceps! Depending on the type of shot gun, loading can be a pain in the arse as well.

Most shotguns are long as well, to allow the cocking action, which counteracts the ideal spread shot fo...

WE M4A1 Black Edition

Posted by Jason Price on Sunday, March 23, 2014, In : New launches 
Charlie Sheldon recently purchased the WE M4A1 Black Edition from JD Airsoft, and I've had the pleasure to review the weapon over the last 48 hours.

The standard package is only £190, which puts this well made M4 against budget makes such as JG and Cyma. This actual M4 has had further items added (RIS and Stock) which took the price up to £280. The stock weapon arrives at 300 fps, but this one has had a spring upgrade so is sitting just below 350 fps.

It comes standard with a 300 round hi-cap...

Solid in its old age!

Reviews are usually about new releases, but I thought I'd bend the rules on this one.

My first ever brand new AEG was the ICS CXP with the plastic body. Purchased in 2010, it was a perfect CQB weapon with the split gearbox, which allows servicing and spring changes at record speed, in fact I still don't know why it didn't take off as it should have. In the first year it got hammered with a box mag on, with just a new piston being fitted after ripping the teeth off during a hefty sustained burs...

Bang for less bucks

As part of Shadow Stalkers sponsorship deal with JD Airsoft, we have borrowed a number of TRMR grenades, and have utilised them at Urban 6 and at Skirmish Mansfield. A number of us were initially sceptical of the use of BFG's, especially with the drills of retrieving them!
The TRMR is the same size as a 40mm grenade so they fit in existing pouches, which is a bonus with existing rigs. They are extremely well made, and come in two parts, the lower section which houses the charge, and the upper ...

Shadow Stalkers Chairman

11 years in the regular Army Air Corps, followed by 6 years as an Officer in the Royal Air Force Reserves.

Now working as a Secondary School Science Teacher.

Started importing airsoft guns pre-UKARA to be used for Cadet training purposes, and the hobby followed from there!

Formed Shadow Stalkers as a Cadet Training Team, to give those wanting to join the Armed Forces, a taster of what was expected. This gave the cadets a major advantage, and out of the 60 cadets who attended the course, there was a 100% success rate in those who went to serve in the Queens uniform.

After leaving the R.A.F.R., Shadow Stalkers was rebooted as an Airsoft Team, following the same ethos of the original team, in training to succeed.
