Universal Nicad/NiMH Smart Charger

$29.99

5 out of 5- A Must Have for AEGs,
Reviewer: shildner from Leesburg, VA

This is a great charger. Depending on the mA of the battery you can select the voltage. Do not select 1.8v for anything under 2000mA,or you could create too much heat and have dire consequences.
It charges very fast and will shut down after there is no "delta".
Highly recommended.

Cybergun Thompson M1A1 AEG Softair Gun

$169.99

5 out of 5- Thompson Lovers!,
Reviewer: shildner from Leesburg, VA

This M1A1 is a very decent airsoft gun. I have this gun and the TM M1A1. While this does not have the blued finish of the TM, it has a good quality flat black paint, that resembles parkarization. The furniture is pretty good, but a wood stock kit would really dress this up nicely.
The power of this gun is great for the price. I chronographed this over ten shots with KSC .2's and had an average of 377 fps! The range is on par for most good quality Mid level guns, and easily hits torso targets during battles between 150 and 200 feet.

The stock can hold large batteries. I changed the battery connectors to large ones and now use an 8.4v 3300ma, which makes this gun purr.

The gear box does shoot harder than a stock TM, but it is not as smooth. You can hear and feel the difference when you shoot this side by side with the TM.

Overall this is a really nice gun, and if you love Thompsons, it is a great alternative the TM at nearly $100 cheaper, which would allow for more magazines or even a wood stock kit.

I have a lot of fun shooting this, and will pick this over my G&G M4's, as it shoots hard, is accurate enough for skirmishes, and it is a Thompson!

I give this 5 stars as compared to other guns under $200. I would give it 4 stars as compared to the TM M1A1.
Hope this helps.

5 out of 5- Good Tactical Belt,
Reviewer: shildner from Leesburg, VA

This is a very strong, durable, and comfortable belt. It is very easy to adjust to custom fit as well as being able to hold any neccessary attachments.
The magazine pouches that come with it work pretty well. I am able to fit my Sigma C02 magazines without a problem.
I would definately recommend this.

4 out of 5- Good Bi-Pod,
Reviewer: shildner from Leesburg, VA

This came in the M324 Sniper package. It is a good bi-pod, with adjustable feet. I did notice that there is a nut and bolt that allows the mount to slightly swivel. Be aware that this nut and bolt needs to be checked before you go into the field. Lucky for me, mine fell off inside, and I was able to find the pieces. It pays to know your gear.
Hope this helps.

5 out of 5- Must Buy,
Reviewer: shildner from Leesburg, VA

This is a great soft case for your weapons! There is thick padding on both sides to protect your investment. Additionally the external pocket is very large that includes a holster, rifle magazine pouchs and loops for gear.
This will allow you to travel with all the gear need for your weapons for any day game.

If you are going to spend money on weapons, treat them right and buy this case to protect them. Be good to your weapons!

4 out of 5- Good Magazine When Lubbed,
Reviewer: shildner from Leesburg, VA

This is not an extraordinary mag. I did have to take the spring out and lube it in order to make sure that the feed did not get jammed.
I found that once I lubed the springs, I have had no problems.
The springs can be easily take out by pushing the detent in the top rear of the magazine and rotating the "screw". This will disengage the lugs on the "screw" and allow the spring to be removed.
Hope this helps.

5 out of 5- Hand Shots at 100',
Reviewer: shildner from Leesburg, VA

Bought this from Shorty's when it first came out. I used it today in an AEG war. I was able to get my team mates to maintain fire superiority with their volume of fire while I was able to pick of OpFors exposed appendages, mostly hands on their weapons as they tried to fire. It was a very satifying experience.
All in all this is a nice looking, well balance weapon. Cocking is very easy, and the 3x32 scope make hand shots at 100'.
The 25 round magazines are nice when the action get a little crazy, but make sure you have a back up.
I would recommend this to all.

5 out of 5- Great 45 for 20 bucks!,
Reviewer: shildner from Leesburg, VA

This was my first gun. I was interested in the look, and I wanted to compare this to my real steel 45. I bought a few of the spare magazines, to increase the amount of rounds on hand.
Overall:
Nice finish
Good cycle for fire
Good safety
Nice power
Hop up is a little too much, as mine will spin up too much, but I can account for this with Kentucky Windage.
Good Accuracy at 30 feet.

Nice Starter for the Newbee who wants to see what Airsoft guns are like.
For twenty dollars this is a bargan!

UTG M87 SOS Special Ops Spring Airsoft Shotgun V3.0

$34.99

4 out of 7 people found the following review helpful:

5 out of 5- Solid Shotgun,
Reviewer: shildner from Leesburg, VA

This shotgun is very heavy and feels very solid in your hands. The cycle for the pump action is smooth and promotes quick shooting.

The box magazines are OK, but they seem to run out of ammo very quickly due to the ease of cranking out shots. I recommend getting a few magazine, as they are very reasonably priced.

This gun is very accurate at 50' and has a good adjustable hop up system.
I was able to hit soda cans consistently at 50' with no problem with a high ROF.

Overall a solid gun, great for spring games as well as a BackUp in AEG matches.

For the money, this gun is a bargan!

If you have the UHC 45, you need these! This magazine is solid and holds over twenty shots. It only seems right that the UHC 45 has a great magazine that is full size and hold a good amount of ammo.

WE Tech M1911 Government Full Metal Gas Blow Back Airsoft Pistol Black with Spare Magazine

$109.99

2 out of 3 people found the following review helpful:

5 out of 5- Nice 1911A1 Copy,
Reviewer: shildner from Leesburg, VA

The WE Tech M1911 is a nice looking and performing gas blow back pistol. The look is very nice and has the good old .45 look. The feel in the hand is very nice and the blow back is very crisp. The trigger pull is also very nice (around 4lbs), allowing for accurate shots. This pistol feels lighter in the hand than my real steel, but that's expected from an aluminum airsoft pistol.
I have chronographed this pistol and found on average (over 50 shots) with Green Gas to get 305fps. Not too bad!
Lucky for me the pistol came with two mags, as one out of the box did not hold a charge and leaked repeatedly. At $29 bucks for a spare this a concern.
The accuracy of the WE Tech is good. I found that fifty foot shots at soda can sized targets are made with ease.
Overall the pistol is very nice. I can expect the finish to deteriorate over time, as there is slight flacking of paint around the barel bushing.
I like this pistol, and will carry it as a side arm for AEG skirmishes for back up.
I would give this an overall rating at 4.5 and will round up for the scale at Shorty's
Hope this helps.

5 out of 5- Power and Versatility,
Reviewer: shildner from Leesburg, VA

I've had this for a while, and I wanted to let you know that it has more power and range than most grenades. I really like the fact that nozzle is in the rear, which allows you to use this grenade as a power source for homemade Nerf bazookas and launchers.
I personally get over 200'with the Nerf pocket vortex consistently, which allows for actual aiming of the Nerf projectiles.
Additionally, it is very versatile and allows for "smoke", paintballs, shot, and projectiles.
I highly recommend this product!

Reviewer: shildner from Leesburg, VA

I use this for filling my pistols and Grenades. Works well, but you need to ensure the nozzle does not bend. Have had this for about a year, and have had no major issues with it. I add lube to the nozzle before I use it. I would recommend.

Cybergun Taurus Millennium PT111 Softair Spring Pistol Black

3 out of 5- Ten Bucks,
Reviewer: shildner from Leesburg, VA

Bought this to put in my real steel holster for my Pt111. Holds the form in the holster just fine!
It's a $10 pistol, so no surprises there. It's light, easy to cock, has a small mag, and is not a skirmishing backup weapon. It shoots, so it's fun to shoot the sticky target indoors.

ECHO 1 14mm CCW Threaded Tracer Unit

$79.99

5 out of 5- Good Unit,
Reviewer: shildner from Leesburg, VA

I've used this in multiple games. Never had an issue. Just make sure you put fresh batteries in for each game.

Also make sure the thread on your barrel is counter-clockwise. I've purchased an adapter, that allows me to put this on clockwise threaded guns too.

It's a lot of fun . . . but if you do night games and you are the only one using one of these, you'll draw a lot of fire.

Mine has been rugged and never failed me for about a year now.

Hope this helps.

Spare 190 rd ECHO 1 M4/M16 VN High Cap Magazine

$19.99

5 out of 5- Good for VN Impression,
Reviewer: shildner from Leesburg, VA

I use these in my Classic Army M15 177E. Never had any issues. It's a good compromise between the large hi-caps and the mid to low-caps. I've also used them in my G&G GR16,Echo1 M16A3, and Magpul M4 without any problems.
A little pricey, but if you need a VN magazine, this works well.
Hope this helps.
