A few may have seen him before, but now he’s a bit more decked out with kit and some more Airsoft experience. Sam is our in-house graphic designer and Stargate fanboy who made his first purchase a CYMA P90. Over the last few weeks, he has slowly been building together more magazines, gear, pouches and game time experience.
So what’s new?
Let’s start off with the gear, trying to stay as close to Stargate as possible but also on a budget (because we know not everyone is minted), Sam has gone for the following so far:
What’s next for Sam (gear wise)?
More fitting gloves, trousers, and some winter layers. Something with a bit more flexibility in the groin whilst still looking fetching out on the battlefield. Sam likes to keep things on a budget whilst still being functional!
For those who haven’t already seen the little Instagram updates (follow us now), the P90 has had some tasteful ROF (rate of fire) upgrades:
Stay tuned to our blogs as next up… we have The Milky 😉
Today we would like to introduce you to Pete, an in-house photographer who you may occasionally see on the field with a camera, capturing event snaps of you in action at HALO MILL – Proving Grounds.
Collected over time, Pete has acquired mostly Surplus clothing such as the MTP trousers and UBAC. As for the essentials, he is quite the NUPROL and Viper model.
Starting from his head down, yesterday Pete took advantage of our recently stocked EARMOR M32 Headset. Keeping the sun out of his eyes and off his head he has opted for a VIPER Elite Baseball Cap and a pair of Revision SAWFLY smoked glasses.
Heading down we are teased with the start of his rig consisting of an EMERSONGEAR JPC Rig. With the headset, Pete also purchased an M52 PTT button. A fine selection of Patches has also been applied to Velcro admin panel top.
Moving down (as seen below) you can bear witness to a range of Ares AMOEBA 140rnd Mid Cap magazines finished off with a nice pair of MECHANIX Gloves and a retro CASIO F-91W watch.
Petes two go to Airsoft weapons are his beloved ASG – CZ Bren and his sidearm choice is the Tokyo Marui – G-series G17 Gen3. So why the Bren? Pete chose the Bren at a perfect time when we had a near half-price sale and since then it’s had a little tickle internally.
The insides have had a GATE Titan V3 mosfet installed to improve the trigger response along with an ASG Ultra harder hop-up rubber to lift those heavier BB’s with less pressure applied. The Bren was also chosen due to how solid it feels in the hand and its out of the box reliability. You have to admit, you don’t see many out there on the field!
For now, Pete is very happy with how the Bren fires and hits target down range and doesn’t see any additional upgrades coming anytime soon. To keep everything together, his primary is slung on a Condor 2 Point Sling.
Onto the pistol… Why not have a Tokyo Marui G-series? Pete had never really considered a TM before because of the polymer feel and price tag. But after having just one go on the range, he was sold. The gas efficiency, how it feels and accuracy sold it in seconds. His new baby is cared for within a NUPROL – G-series G17 Holster. The night sights seen on the pistol come as spares in the box straight from the factory!

You may have seen this last week with Sam’s P90 on our Instagram account, well now we are taking it a tad further thanks to Stuart (who has been playing a hell of a lot longer).
Every Friday we want to introduce you to our team and show what we use out on the field! Today, let us introduce to you Stuart Manks. Our in-house product photographer and bearded giant. Oh he also runs Halo Mill – Proving Grounds once a month. You can click here for more information.
Stuart’s current go-to setup is lightweight, practical and supportive. He likes to run with only what he needs to reduce energy consumption and keep a slim profile for those intense firefight scenarios. A full list found in the pic can be found below:
# VIPER Tactical – Lazer Special OPS Plate Carrier
# MAG – 8x 130rnd M16 Magazines
# Haley Strategic – Dangler Pouch
# 1LM – Ranger Eye Patch
# TDO – Airsoft Patch
# TDO – GRATTO patch
# TDO – LADY G Patch
# Superfly Patch
# Georaga Patch
On his back Stuart occasionally runs with his VIPER Tactical – Backpack storing additional ammo, pyro, and other essentials to make sure the job gets done!
As for his lid he’s running the following to look after the supercomputer inside:
# EMERSONGEAR – MICH 2001 Helmet
# Z-Tac – Headset
# Z-Tac – Arc Mounts
# ARC – Helmet Rails
# VIPER Tactical – Snood
# EMERSONGEAR – Counterweight Pouch
# 1LM – Flag Patch
# BOLLE – Silium II Glasses
One of his longest owned RIF’s the gun was imported specifically for him but fully built up in-house with GATE electronics and other shiny parts, more on that will come in the future. This thing shoots like a laser with an incredible trigger response.
