Staff Feature Friday – Nick

It's another Friday and we're here to show off another absolutely fabulous member of staff, and what he runs with on a game day. Today we would like to introduce to you Nick. Nick works between customer service, but mostly returns admin and has been here for several years now. So, let's get onto the good stuff, what he shoots with and how he dresses up for game day.

The Gear:

Classed as a beginner gear-whore he is slowly building up a former counter-terrorism / urban Police look. Combined with his lightweight and compact weapon options, he can run fast but also work effectively in close quarters and woodland scenarios depending on what takes his fancy at the weekend.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Let's give you a breakdown of the clothing and gear seen in the pics below:

With Nick being a lighter frame, people can usually look a bit swamped in their gear, however, the Viper Tactical line-up of gear is highly adjustable, even for the larger sized shooter, Viper gear can fit snug.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Keeping it lightweight and slimline also allows for tucking yourself away into tight situations away from incoming fire far easier, plus you will be working up less of a sweat in the day running about like a mad man.

The Guns:

Nick certainly likes to own quality rifles and his primary and secondary definitely haven't been compromised, but you may be surprised to see that one of our members of staff has hardly touched their internals!

Starting off with the ASG - EVO 3 A12018 Revision, the only upgrades carried out have been on the stock stabiliser and hop adjustment wheel from Airtech Studios. These couple of upgrades get rid of stock wobble and allow for easier hop pressure adjustment, even whilst wearing gloves. The front end has also been dressed up with a very tasty looking ASG - ROTEX Suppressor.

Running on top of the EVO is a VORTEX - SPARC AR Red Dot Sight. Where Nick may opt for more affordable, but highly functional gear, he makes up on his tasty accessories. Considering he gets a free replacement whenever the sight may get shot out, our accidentally damaged... Who can blame him? Anyone can take advantage of this warranty thanks to VORTEX's VIP warranty scheme. More on that can be found on any product listing from VORTEX on our website, or come in-store.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Onto the side-arm, the highly trusted Tokyo Marui - G17 Gen3, the pistol comes standard with optional night slights (slight glow in the dark) and has not been touched at all internally! Being stored in a reliable holster, the only aftermarket "mods" are the custom 3D printed flared mag-well (for quicker reloads) and reinforced base plates for his magazines.

These pistols are built to last and function all year round with surprisingly high gas efficiency thanks to their polymer slide construction. Don't let the word polymer put you off, these are strong and produced in Japan to a very high standard.

Feature Friday – Doodson

Today it's time to introduce our 2nd Dave of this current blog series. Known mostly as Doodson, he's been with Patrol Base for over 7 years! Originally working part-time, he finally fell into his full-time position of most days working within our in-store workshop and front of house staff. Doodson is quite well known for his taste in rifles, optics, upgrades and... if you hear someone laughing in a bush, you're about to get shot by him mid game day.

Ninja Doodson also shoots real steel rifles as a hobby, but today we are purely focusing on his 6mm plastic addition. Let's start off with his gear, the very little of it that he runs with.

The Gear:

As we have already mentioned, Doodson has pretty much always run super lightweight. Not quite naked, but also not far off. Generally seen running all year in a t-shirt and combat bottoms, he does opt for a thermal base layer when the winter starts to creep in.

Doodson's latest loadout consists of:

  • Salomon - GTX boots
  • Sealskins - Socks because the ‘gtx-yness’ stopped working and it was cheaper than new boots
  • Vertx - Mandrake trousers
  • Black Hawk - riggers belt
  • Black Hawk - 1911 holster
  • Blue Force Gear - Helium Whisper Dump Pouch
  • Blue Force Gear - Helium Whisper M4 mag pouch
  • Arcteryx - Thermal Top
  • Vortex - Organic Muley T-Shirt

Literally, that is it! When running his tricked out VSR, his spare magazines and speedloaders are simply stored in his pocket and the tactical stock-pouch.

The Guns:

Doodson has owned many guns in his Airsoft life. But today we are focusing on his special two. Always known as being a sneaky sniper, running and gunning a MK23, it wasn't until quite recently he moved onto the ASG - Scorpion Evo hype.

Let's get straight into the upgrade. Dave is all about range, accuracy and consistency and having to tinker with nearly everything. The internals consists of:

Externally Doodson has chopped down the suppressor to submerge it into the handguard some more, installed an HB Industries - EVO Paddle Mag Release and opted for a VORTEX - VIPER PST Gen II 106x24 SFP VMR-2 MRAD scope mounted on a VORTEX - American Eagle Precision QR mount.

Now onto potentially Doodson's move beloved weapon. His fully pimped out Tokyo Marui - VSR-10 Pro Sniper Rifle. This is the railed version fitted with a suppressor and has had some serious time and money spent on it internally.

Let's get straight into it:

As mentioned already, Doodson runs light so all his magazines and spare speedloader of ammo are stocked in the stock pouch of the rifle or in his trouser pockets.

The rifle itself has also had other modifications including a blanked off mock ejection port to reduce sound when the piston smacks against the cylinder head and trigger release. The stock has also been filled with expanding foam too.

Lastly, one of the most common questions Doodson would get asked on a game day is... What scope is that!?! Taken from his real steel background he likes to keep familiar with his optics and slaps on a VORTEX - Razor Gen2 4.5-27x56 (available if you contact us!). The scope has been secured to the sight rail with a VORTEX - Precision Match 34mm Rings.

Finally onto his third pride and joy today. Doodson currently favours (from his collection), his Tokyo Marui - HI-CAPA 5.1 Gas Blowback Pistol finished in Chrome or to others, a Stainless Steel look.

Absolutely nothing has been done to this pistol! It's completely stock other than a slightly filed trigger guard to allow it to drop easily into his BLACKHAWK 1911 holster.
