Feature Friday – Heeson

Today we want to introduce to you Dave, mostly known as Heeson to staff because we have another Dave here… We will stick to Heeson for the purpose of this blog. Heeson has been here several years mostly within the two workshops we have. Most days you can see Dave managing the storefront and tinkering away on customer projects as well as a few of his own Frankensteins. One of which is featured today in this very blog.

Heeson is also a face seen many times at HALO MILL – Proving Grounds and mini Instagram famous with his own channel that can be found here.

The Gear:

One for running simple, fast and quietly Heeson has gone down a slimline route for his latest loadout, especially when combined with his favourite custom build sniper rifle right now. Generally, you can see him on the field in jeans or affordable combat trousers. He’s proud of running a budget rig too, the 8Fields Tactical – Multi-Mission Chest Rig. Absolutely perfect for storing the essential but also a couple of bangs and smoke for those tricky situations.

The most expensive piece of kit has to be his jacket. See the full breakdown on his latest loadout below:

The pouches haven’t been modified at all, they are perfectly suited for pistol magazines as well as the sniper mags as seen in the pictures.

As well as pistol magazines you have room for 5.56 and a few pyro at the same time.

The Gun:

Heeson has had quite the range of guns from AEG to Gas, rifle to pistol and more. His latest and potentially most popular build has to be his cut down VSR rifle.

Based on a WELL – MB03A Heeson has gone against the norm of owning a Tokyo Marui and fully decking it out. Instead, he wanted a budget rifle and see how far he could push it. Externally the rifle has been accessorised with a VORTEX – 3-9×40 VMR-1, chopped down an outer barrel and then finished off with a SWISS ARMS – Universal 23cm Suppressor.

The back of the rifle has had a rifle stock cheek pouch fitted for carrying those sneaky mid game treats. Internally the following surgery has been undertaken:

The suppressor is actually removable too, it isn’t just glued on! There is a silencer adaptor, similar to this which was slotted into the outer barrel and secured. But why did he build this super stubby sniper? Simply because someone online said stubby snipers look ugly… we hope those who read this can now disagree and admire his build 😉
