5 out of 5- OH. MY. GOD!,
Reviewer: Mr. Finnigan from Sleepy Hollow, IL

Speaking as a World War II weapons freak, this is like my favorite gun. EVER. I got it about a week ago, and i put it through rigorous tests before bringing this review to you. So, let's get right to it:

Accuracy & Power: Excellent, 5/5. I prefer using .2g bbs in this gun, but for kicks, i tried a .12g and a .23g. The .12g bbs increased the muzzle velocity of the rifle by almost 70-80 fps(around 450fps) but the range decreased by almost 100ft. the .23g bbs increased accuracy by about 50ft but the fps decreased by about 30fps. Final Judgement: use .2g bbs and this gun will be perfect.

Looks: Amazing. 5/5. This rifle is one of the best looking AEGs out there, a replica of the Thompson M1A1 Sub-Machine Gun. A modified version of the the infamous Chicago "Typewriter" used by many gangsters, it was created for military use. An excellent replica, it deserves a perfect 5/5.

Magazine & Ammo Capacity: Er, 4/5. 60 rds is a nice size magazine, but a reservoir or hi-cap mag would be nice. However, you can get a 400 rd. drum magazine for this rifle that is particularly useful.

Sights: Very Good, 5/5. Sights are excellent, line up your target, and i can guarantee you will not miss within the effective range, between 140-160 feet.

Overall Rating: Incredible, 5/5. This is a gun that will not disappoint you, it is most definitely worth the 200 bucks you have to shell out for this beauty. With all the testing i put this through, i was surprised all the way by it's outstanding excellence. Great buy, i highly recommend this gun! =)

P.S. Buy a drum magazine if you can, and A LOT of .2g bbs, and you will be unstoppable!

P.P.S. Please Rate, I would greatly appreciate it!

4 out of 5- One of the better shotties...,
Reviewer: Mr. Finnigan from Sleepy Hollow, IL

Haven't written a review in a while but here goes...

First off, I DON'T OWN THIS.
however, i have used it quite extensively. (neighbor bought one at a retailer)

It's a nice gun, i won't lie. It stands up to the utg m87 series shotguns, but i must say i like the m87's better (SOS w/ collapsible stock rocks)

Okay, here's what i like about the TSD shotgun

Shell type mags (adds realism)
Compact (excellent for maneuvering)
Insanely quiet (lube it up people!)
Range (about 100-120 feet, great for $25 gun!)
Fps (about 250 to 275, great because its purpose is CQC)
Shell capacity (14 per shell, w/ 4 shells, sweet!)
Quick reload time (no fumbling w/ magazines, shells attach to gun!)
RIS rail (buy a red dot sight/scope)
Price (what can i say, it's affordable)

What i don't like
Feels cheap (but it is, so i can't really complain)
Single shot (most airsoft shotguns are, but i like multi-shot shotguns)
I don't have one (it's on my Christmas list though!)

If i could give it a four and a half i would, but it doesn't deserve a 5.
Even so, it would be dumb to pass up a spectacular offer like this

Note: Shorty, with this deal you are going to bring a smile to a bunch of kids this Christmas, keep it up.

Happy Holidays!

SIG 556 Full Metal AEG Softair Rifle

$249.99

3 out of 5 people found the following review helpful:

4 out of 5- Alright...,
Reviewer: Mr. Finnigan from Sleepy Hollow, IL

The Sig 556 is a BEAUTIFUL gun. seriously, it looks amazing. it also hurts. a lot.

But anyway, this gun's stats are ok. shorty claims that it reaches 370 fps with a .2, but i would recommend a .25 for best accuracy. that drops the ps down to around 340. Range is pretty good, but it seems inconsistent. don't expect to get hits every time at 130-160 feet. The rpm is only ok. at about 760-780, it's a little less then i would want, but its not unbearable.

The feel of the gun is amazing. It's very sturdy and it can take a few drops. It kind of feels like holding an m4/m16.

Overall, the 556 is a pretty good gun for the price. If you like the look of this rifle then i would recommend it for backyard skirmishes and stuff. However, i would recommend the Echo 1 A.S.C over the 556. In my opinion, it's a better gun for the same price.

5 out of 5- Great Shotty!,
Reviewer: Mr. Finnigan from Sleepy Hollow, IL

Well, i got this for christmas this year, and i have been quite pleasantly pleased. This is a very nice shotgun, has great power and good range. However, i found it extremely helpful to buy a red dot sight for this gun, and i am beginning to wonder if i could better accuracy from the M87LA... Oh well. Anyway, this gun is great, if you want a good shotty without making a big dent in your wallet, this is your gun! (At least until you get the cash for a utg three barreled...) =)

5 out of 5- Amazin...,
Reviewer: Mr. Finnigan from Sleepy Hollow, IL

I just want to start off by saying this gun is only outperformed by 1 other: the A.S.C. Other than that though, it is sick.

I bought the A.S.C and this gun on the same day, and when they got here, i wasn't sure which i would like better. Personally i prefer the A.S.C, but they're a pretty even match-up in my opinion.

FPS: Good. Shorty says 415 with .2's but take my advice and DO NOT USE .2's with this gun. They curve badly after about 100 feet. Use high polished .25's for best results, and FPS will stay around 380.

RPM: Great. Shorty says 850 but it seems closer to 900. Don't quote me on it, that's just intuition. Either way, the rpm is good.

Range: Epic. With .25's i was hitting body shots at 220 feet and head shots at 160 consecutively. (A.S.C's range is better)However range is still beast on this gun.

Look/Feel: Great. Very comfortable,and hefty. Great looking M4, one of the best out there.

Overall: Superb. Very high quality, effective, and durable gun for an extremely affordable price. If you have a love of M4's get this, otherwise i STRONGLY recommend the Echo 1 A.S.C (SCAR) instead. You get a bit better gun i think for the same price. But they both rock. Buy one. =D

UHC 1911 Spring Airsoft Pistol Black

5 out of 5- Can't give enough praise to the 1911 ,
Reviewer: Mr. Finnigan from Sleepy Hollow, IL

From the veteran to the newbie, this gun will not disappoint you, I guarantee it. This gun has personally saved my neck countless times, and i now know it is one of, if not the best purchase i have ever made from Shorty. This gun is extremely durable, I've used it in winter, summer, spring, it's been dropped in snow and mud, and it still kicks butt out on the battlefield. It's accuracy is nearly unmatched by other spring pistols and it's no slouch in the power department either. On another note, the gun looks absolutely outstanding, UHC has done an overall incredible job. So, final thoughts: This gun is a must buy. It a great gun for almost all situations, especially as a back up for a sniper, which I am. Also i forgot to mention that this particular weapon is also very quiet. Not extremely quiet, like Hide-in-the-bushes-pick-off-the-entire-enemy-team-and-no-one-ever-finds-me quiet but it is a tad quieter than other pistols i own. Make you sure you buy lube, and lube this gun regularly, and its performance will truly amaze you. (Use .2g bbs)

Cybergun FAMAS SV Tactical Softair Spring Rifle

$39.99

1 out of 1 people found the following review helpful:

5 out of 5- excellent weapon,
Reviewer: Mr. Finnigan from Sleepy Hollow, IL

The FAMAS is an excellent weapon due to the fact that it can serve multiple roles. Plant a scope on this bad boy, and you have an accurate sniper weapon. Don't be disappointed when it doesn't perform as well as a real sniper, it isn't strictly made for long range. Even with the iron sights you can still shoot accurately to between 100 and 140 feet, depending on weather conditions. (Use .2g bbs) Unscrew the outer barrel and you have a compact assault rifle, capable of extremely rapid fire due to the strategic placement of the cocking handle. It holds 45 rounds, good for a springer. Whether long range or short range or in between, this gun will outshine most other spring rifles of around the same price level. Unfortunately, many people are annoyed by the appearance of the gun, which deters them from buying it. However, this gun is one of the most comfortable weapons I've ever held. Do not judge the FAMAS based on how it looks, its performance is excellent, and it feels great. An excellent starters gun. I am still very fond of this weapon and I've been airsofting for a while. Please, Please, Please, do not judge the FAMAS on the basis of appearances. It will not let you down. I hope this helped. If so, i would greatly appreciate a rating. Thanks.

5 out of 5- I also wrote a review for army digi,
Reviewer: Mr. Finnigan from Sleepy Hollow, IL

This will be more detailed. I completely agree with the Stefan on this, a ghillie suit and gun wrap is a great idea. This weapon's main strengths its power, accuracy, and quietness. I now own this gun, in army digital, and every game I've used it in I've won, no joke. In fact, one day, 7 of my buddies thought it would be funny for me to face all of them and their aegs, and one super 9, by myself with just this and my colt 1911 (read my review, the black one) between me and certain death. (okay, over dramatic) Anyway, my cousin's friend Adam supplied me with a ghillie suit, which i hid in the woods the day before the battle so none of my friends knew i had it. Quickly i donned the suit as soon as i reached the bush i was using for cover, and set up my little outpost. I had 3 granola bars, 2 gatorades, and my guns. First i see my friend Eric get close, probably 90 feet away. "POP" Bb square in the bare chest. 1 down. My other friends showed up one, by one, and i picked them all off until only Trevor with his super 9 remained. Unfortunately for Trevor, i spotted him up in a tree, and boop, down he goes. After the battle i stayed in hiding, snuck back to my house and locked them all out in 90 degree July weather. I'm a very kind person. This gun has come through for me every time, i know it will come through for you too.

5 out of 5- Perfection,
Reviewer: Mr. Finnigan from Sleepy Hollow, IL

Absolutely, positively, the best shotgun i have ever fired. First of all, let me just say to those of you who complain about the range- It's a shotgun; it's meant for cqb, not sniping. 100 feet is excellent. That said, this gun is an absolute beast. Having played a round with both the M3L and M3S, i prefer the M3S, but that's just me. I like the maneuverability that no stock gives me- but, it might make the gun harder to pump for some people...
I love the fact that this gun has iron sights! I never really used them, but they are a nice touch.
I also love the rubberized grips. I had the old M87 LA, which was all plastic. The rubberized grips make this much more comfortable to hold.
Also, this gun is extremely powerful. Shorty says 275 but when i chronoed it, it was closer to 310-315. Doesn't sound like a lot, but at close range it is devastating.
The other nice, yet obvious thing, is that it's an actual shotgun-it fires more than one round at a time. Like shorty says, you can vary the spread by the weight of the bb's. You can get a super wide spread with .12's, but i really don't recommend that as the .12's will jam the shells and the gun, rendering them both completely useless. I fired one shot with .12's, and i never will again. Use them at your own risk...
Overall, this is darn near close to a perfect shotgun. Maybe not perfect, but definitely the best shotgun I've ever had the privilege of using. Highly recommend this!!!

5 out of 5- Buy this right now.,
Reviewer: Mr. Finnigan from Sleepy Hollow, IL

Perfect Side arm.

The thing feels so sturdy, looks super cool, and is all around fun to fire.

The Fps is respectable, and the range is simply intimidating. Leaps and bounds ahead of what you would need for a side arm, and with an affordable price tag!

Also, this gun is CO2 READY. which is awesome. You'll get a higher fps with c02 even though those mags are really expensive... Be warned. But with the affordable price of the gun, you wont worry as much about what you'll have to drop on spare mags!

Buy a propane adapter if you dont want to go the way of C02, but i would probably recommend the C02 route.

This gun is just incredible. Couldn't ask for a better sidearm. The price is right, the gun is jaw dropping, and i guarantee you will have a ton of fun with this weapon.

So why are you still reading this? Go click "add to cart" right now!!

Get out and play!!

Umarex/KWA H&K MP7A1 Gas Blow Back Airsoft Gun Black

$254.99

5 out of 5- KWA is flirting with perfection.,
Reviewer: Mr. Finnigan from Sleepy Hollow, IL

I have to say, the more I deal with KWA, the more I fall in love with that amazing company. They really outdid themselves on this MP7 GBB submachine gun.

As an owner of many an AEG (my favorite of which is the KWA SR10, check it out) I had really been wanting something different. My first thought was a gas SMG, something a little more fun to shoot for cqb games. I started looking around, and I was mainly looking for KWA weapons because of their rock solid reputation for Gas Blowbacks. I asked my buddy if he had any recommendations and said that the KWA MP7 would probably be the best bang for my buck.

I decided to check it out, and after a few days I sold myself on it. So I bought it, and the second i had it in my hands i knew it was one of the best purchases i have ever made. This thing is HEAVY. Just a rock solid, extremely well built weapon. With the trademarks that are present all over this thing, it's hard to find a more realistic MP7, and in my opinion the MP7 is one of the coolest looking smg's out there. The fps is very good, on a warm day it will be in the are of 400 fps. Use KWA .25's it what these guns are tested with and built for. The range is also really decent, and the accuracy is phenomenal, far better than i would have expected. Finally, the ROF is perfect. I can dump the 48 rd mag in about 2.5 seconds, because it shoots in the neighborhood of 20 bb's a second. Dang. (You're gonna need a few extra mags...)

The only gripes i have with this gun are minor. One is the power. It shoots way to hot for most cqb fields out of the box, so it's almost a necessity that you buy a low power valve to use this gun.. for what it's made for. What? It doesn't make sense that KWA made this gun shoot to hot for cqb when that's what this weapon is designed for. Oh well, just buy the valve and everything will be okay. The other issue i have is the barrel thread. It's not a normal 14mm CCW thread, so you have to buy an adapter for any barrel extensions/suppressors. Again, oh well, not a big deal. The last is the mag price. It's 50 dollars for each mag, and at 48rds a piece... you're gonna need a lot if this is a primary.. (which for me, it is.) Things will get a bit expensive because of this, but...

IT'S SO WORTH IT. This gun. is. amazing. one of the most fun guns i have ever fired, just an absolute blast to use. I'd recommend it as a primary for cqb, or a secondary for a designated sniper player. You cannot go wrong here, KWA has created a piece of art here. Darn near perfect. If you haven't bought this yet you're doing yourself a huge disservice. Buy it. Like, now. :)

Don't be a chairsofter! Go play.
