Staff Feature Friday – Gary

It's been a while since we did one of these and today we're bringing you someone rather new. An international member of staff known as Gary from the Czech Republic has been working within our product testing department and now recently changed to a new role joining the team of people who two-tone your orders! Gary has been at Patrol Base now for 7 months.

Gary has been playing Airsoft well before he moved to the UK, for the last 2 years actually.

His playstyle is reserved but when the time comes, he isn't scared to run into action and he most definitely likes to invest in reliable yet practical gear and guns to suit. Let's kick off with what he wears followed up by his favourite Airsoft RIF's.

As a more fast-paced player, Gary has opted for as much cover-up as possible. It's not to protect his future modelling career... it's just a personal thing.

From the head down Gary's loadout is as follows:

  • MIL-TEC Tactical Balaclava - Mandrea Night Pattern
  • DYE - I4 Mask
  • EMERSON GEAR - Tactical Shirt - Typhon Pattern
  • 8Fields Tactical - Ultimate Operator Plate Carrier - Black
  • Viper Tactical - Elite Gloves - Black
  • Pentagon KOMVOS - 1.5" Single Belt - Black
  • Viper Tactical - Contractor Pants - Black
  • NUPROL - EU G-Series Retention Paddle Holster - Black
  • HAIX - Black Eagle Atletic 2.1 GTX Mid Boots - Black

This isn't Gary's only loadout, he is more of a CQB player but is spotted at HALO MILL - Proving Grounds site occasionally with a more well-suited woodland loadout.

Now onto the fun stuff, the Airsoft guns and more! Gary's primary is the SPECNA ARMS - Edge E12 with a pre-installed GATE Titan MOSFET.

The rifle has been modified inside out which includes the following:

  • Sector gear short stroked by 2 teeth
  • Handguard modified to suit the tracer nicer
  • MADBULLL - Black Python Ver.II 6.03 Tightbore Inner Barrel
  • NUPROL - M4 A.X.E. Stock
  • NUPROL - 11.1v LiPo Battery
  • Acetech - AT1000 Tracer Unit
  • Viper Tactical - Moderator Cover
  • TMC - Padded 2 to 1 Point QD Sling
  • VORTEX - Crossfire Red Dot Sight

Once again just like many of our staff and customers, Gary has opted for a VORTEX optic which offers him lifetime warranty and free replacement if it is to every become accidentally damaged. This includes being shot out on the field by fellow Airsofters.

Alongside the primary, Gary runs a Pistol and grenade at all times for those perfect situations where room clearance and backup options are necessary.

His chosen pistol backup is the G-Series G18 GBB Pistol. Tucked away nicely in the reliable NUPROL - G-Series Paddle Holster he also keeps his impact grenade close by. The Dynatex grenade is a timed delay device that uses blanks for an impressive loud room clearance.

Just like his primary, the pistol didn't escape untouched either. Tastefully modified the pistol has received a brand new Maple Leave WE Glock Uop Unit Set and Maple Leaf Monster Hop Up Rubber for WE Pistols.

Feature Friday – Airsoft Ranch

We promised it would be coming, and now it is here! Today we are showing off what some of the guys behind Airsoft Ranch run on their game days of Airsoft.

If you haven't seen our previous blog on "Airsoft Ranch pay us a visit?", then go check it out using the clickable link.

From their previous trip here where they filmed a review of the Taran Tactical - KW3 Combat Master Pistol, they also got together with our media team to do a little fashion shoot.

So, let's get to it, we're going to start with Kamil and what he chooses as his go-to gear on Airsoft game day. Kamil likes to run with an affordable setup but invests wisely in his primary. Let us start off with the gear.

Equipment and Clothes:

Now, let's get onto his two favourite rifles, firstly his primary. The KRYTAC - Trident CRB MKII with a few tasty upgrades and accessories:

  • Prometheus Purple Bucking +Namazu Firefly Flat Nub,
  • SHS - 14 Teeth Piston
  • SHS - Metal Piston Head
  • GATE - Titan MOSFET
  • Laylax Prometheus - 6.03mm Stainless Steel Inner Barrel
  • Krytac Nautilus Gearbox shimmed
  • Rifle battery connection changed to Deans
  • GunsModify Bearing Rotor Set
  • AIP Recoil Buffer
  • Guarder Enhanced Recoil Spring Guide

As for his secondary, Kalim chooses to run his Tokyo Marui Glock17 Gen3.

Also joining Kamil on the catwalk was Ryan, a fellow team-member who loves his gear as seen in the pics.

Equipment and Clothes:

As for the guns, Ryan has spent some serious money! His beloved go-to is a Tokyo Marui - SCAR L fully upgraded. For those ultra CQB moments or when he's out of ammo for the SCAR, Ryan makes a quick change over to his RAVEN - EU17 GBB Pistol.

Airsoft Ranch pays us a visit!


Airsoft Ranch who? For those who may not have seen the name floating on social media yet or even come across their website, Airsoft Ranch is a relatively new team of 10 people dedicated to site reviews, informational guides and a WIKI source for all things Airsoft in the UK.

Airsoft Ranch is only 11 months old and soon celebrating their 1st year of internet birth! The Ranch Team consists of a mixed bag of active Airsofters who can often be seen at Hardline Airsoft, Invasion Airsoft and Wolfgang when not touring the country trying out new locations.

We recently had a visit from three of the guys who took advantage of spending a full day checking out everything we had to offer and also partnered up with ourselves to produce their first YouTube video featuring the hugely popular Army Armament - Taran Tactical JW3 GBB Pistol.

Along with being film stars for the day, we also snapped a few photos of two of the players to show you what they run and gun with. We will be posting a Feature Friday blog dedicated to two of their members next week on the 22nd of November.

So let's get to it, Airsoft Ranch take it away with your review of the Army Armament - Taran Tactical JW3 GBB Pistol:

As mentioned in the video, they have produced a full write up a review of the pistol which can be found here on their official website.

If you like what you have seen in the video and Airsoft Ranch's official blog review and fancy your own JW3 pistol, then check it out here.
