UHC 1911 Spring Airsoft Pistol Black

5 out of 5- UHC M1911A1,
Reviewer: CrazyBob from Rockville, MD

This is an excellent spring pistol. .12g BB's are not accurate in this gun, but .2 and even .25 shoot very well. .29g metal BB's will fire, but care must be taken not to overload the magazine, as this will cause a jam and power with such a heavy BB is rather low. This pistol tends to shoot high and can be somewhat difficult to cock if you don't have a firm grip on the slide. If you like the military M1911A1 or you are trying to re-enact World War II, this is the pistol for you. About the only other good M1911A1's out there in the military configuration are the KJW and Western Arms GBB's, which are rather expensive. Real-steel M1911 grips will fit this pistol, I have black Hogue rubber grips on mine, they do a good job as far as improving control and I already had them sitting around anyways so I didn't have to go out and buy them. The stock plastic grips are somewhat slippery, esp if your hands are wet or sweaty. You can adapt this pistol with a HFC silencer kit if you want to imitate John Kelly in Tom Clancy's Without Remorse. In that novel, Kelly converts his military M1911 to .22 caliber and builds a silencer for it. The sights on a M1911 are too low for use with a silencer, so Kelly in the book painted a thin white stripe down the top of the silencer.

Dual Mag Clamp M4/M16 Series

$5.99

4 out of 5- M16 Magazine Clamp,
Reviewer: CrazyBob from Rockville, MD

This mag clamp does exactly what it is designed to do. Being metal, it tends to scratch metal AEG mags, so I recommend wrapping your mags with some sort of tape (I use electrical tape) on the part of the mag in contact with the clamp to prevent metal on metal contact. Use WD-40 or virtually any kind of oil to help keep the clamp from rusting and make sure to wipe down and disassemble the clamp after playing outside in a skirmish, esp if it's wet outside. Being metal (steel, I believe) it will last for a very long time and will not break or crack. To get around the dust-cover opening problem with M4 series AEG's, have the magazine on the right side of the clamp about a quarter to a half inch lower than the magazine on the left side. There's no way to carry 2 clamped magazines together in a standard magazine pouch, a larger pouch would need to be improvised and if a second clamp is used, you can clamp 3 mags together, but that configuration gets somewhat heavy and cumbersome after a while.

UTG Tactical Black Shoulder Holster Rig With Mag Pouch

$17.99

4 out of 5- Black Shoulder Holster,
Reviewer: CrazyBob from Rockville, MD

This holster is pretty good, the thumb snap is rather soft, so it's a little hard to undo quickly, this is a good holster, especially for the low cost. The mag pouches will also fit a tac light or a silencer. Good if you're on a budget and you aren't going to be wearing a vest. Definitely makes the most sense for carrying a springer, since this holster is rather soft, a heavy sidearm like a GBB will tend to sag a little too much.

M4/M16 Series Carry Handle Mount

5 out of 5- M16 Weaver scope mount rail. ,
Reviewer: CrazyBob from Rockville, MD

This sight mount is excellent and does exactly what it is meant to do, make sure to keep moisture away and keep it lightly oiled to prevent rusting. A nice detail would be if the rail addresses were marked on each rail notch as they are on the military-issue Weaver mounts. The military ones have rail addresses marked on each notch with white paint, addresses are labelled with markings such as 'T-6". The address markings are so you can detach accessories and write down what notch they need to be put on to retain zero. I'm sure somebody could improvise these markings if they really wanted them. I've only ever seen it marked like that on the high-end mounts, however.

UTG Tactical Leg Holster/Mag Pouch Right Hand

$11.99

2 out of 5- Leapers Tactical Thigh Holster,
Reviewer: CrazyBob from Rockville, MD

This holster is not the best. The materials are much too soft and saggy and the strap is somewhat difficult to disengage in a skirmish. If your legs are bigger than average, you may have trouble adjusting this holster to fit you. I also own the left-handed version of this holster and it is essentially the same. I find a Uncle Mike's inside the pants or hip holster with a thumb break to be a much better holster than this. Thigh holsters in general aren't any quicker or easier to draw from than a hip holster, about the only advantages to thigh holsters in general that I can see is that it helps balance your load if you have magazine pouches on the other thigh and it drops the holster out of the way of a tactical vest. If you aren't going to use a tactical vest or mag pouches on the other leg, you're far better off with a hip holster.

Umarex H&K MP7 Electric Airsoft Gun

$59.99

5 out of 5- AMAZING,
Reviewer: CrazyBob from Rockville, MD

I got this gun because I wanted something cheap, and that had good quality. When I shot it for the first time, I was like, WOW! Very good in quality, and is accurate (sort of) within about 100 feet. Very reliable. This gun is good if you want to play around with friends, but not for serious airsofting. I would recommend getting a small pistol as a side-arm to go with this.

Pros:
Good quality
Metal barrel
Accurate
Light (if you like it light)
Adjustable hop-up
Semi AND fully-automatic
Magazine works very well, even
if you have to wind it up every once in a while

Cons:
Part plastic
Will fail from time to time
Feels like the mag runs out pretty fast
Hop-up will not run with .24 ammo

Overall:
Pretty reliable gun. Click to add to cart now!
