Back To Basics Video Guides

We've decided to introduce a new video series, we're going back to basics and showing the newcomers to Arisofters (and those who thought they knew everything) the must-know basics. We're going to cover topics including how to connect your batteries to your Airsoft guns, the different types of Airsoft gas, explanation of power limits and more!

We've so far published two videos, the first was about battery connection types and safe use.

Our more recent video is presenting the difference between the many Airsoft gasses available on the market, and what may be the right choice for you.

We are uploading this series of videos to our YouTube, Facebook and Instagram TV channels. Be sure to subscribe to all so you don't miss out on the updates, and see if you really did know everything there was to know about Airsoft.


Feature Supplier – ASG Will

Today we're bringing you news on what another one of our suppliers runs with on game-day! Today we are happy to introduce you to Will Greenwood, the UK and ROI manager of ASG.

Despite how busy Will is, running up and down the country, he is a frequent Airsofter who plays every week! So let's spill the beans and show you what he runs and guns with on a weekend.

The Gear:

100% a gear-whore, Will definitely does not run cheap. Replicating a UKSF appearance he's kitted up in Guccigear literally from head to toe.

Will's head setup is an OPS Core Maritime with Platatac Helmet Cover, Counterweight Pouch, Helstar 6 IR Light, V-Light and Peltor XP headset. His chosen eye pro is another Gucci pair of Oakley Tombstone Glasses and then an Arcteryx Balaclava to get rid of the sharp sting of BB hit and finish the menacing look.

Moving down his base layer is a Crye Precision (you will be seeing more of that brand...) Black UBAC underneath a JPC rig decorated in Blue Force Gear, triple front pouch. On the rear is another Blue Force Utility pouch.

Along with the JPC rig, Will runs a Crye Precision MRB belt with Blue Force Gear Double and Medical pouch setup. Lastly, for when he chooses to rock a pistol, a Safariland Holster is equipped on the hip of the belt platform.

Then to finish it off, whats more Gucci than a set of 5.11 Combat Jeans and Solomon boots? Incredibly hard-wearing, but Will's kit does come in at a very hefty price tag.

The Gun:

Being responsible for the sale of ASG within the UK and ROI, Will has access to the best ASG offer! Will's beloved is the ASG EVO, with the ability to choose from any in the series, today Will is featuring his CQB setup.

Topped off with a Sight Mark Micro Red dot, Will is able to transition and lock onto multiple targets with ease and speed.

Being the 2018 model, the EVO is completely standard! Will just makes sure to run enough magazines for the game-day utilising his front Blue Force pouches on the JPC rig.

Whilst Will was here we also gave him a little grilling to find out more about who he is and his Airsoft experience. You can check it out here:

Staff Feature Friday – Sam MkII

Today we're introducing Sam MkII, a once customer now turned customer services rep. An ex-paintballer turned Airosfter and played his first-ever Airsoft game 4 years ago at our CQB site, HALO MILL Arena.

What brought Sam to the dark side of Airsoft from Paintball? Costs and Sam's own personal opinion of Airsoft looking cooler (we can't disagree there!) Sam originally started off playing at HALO MILL running pistol rentals and then fastly purchasing his first gun, the Armourer Works - Custom HX11 Hi-Capa. Drawn to the pistol due to its Iron Man looking vibe and sheer performance of the split slide trigger action.

Quickly chasing more action and a bigger battlefield, Sam experienced the outdoors and eventually came across our sister site HALO MILL - Proving Grounds. Having sniper for just over 2 years and owning a G&G Armament - Wild Hog as a more reliable backup, Sam has more recently transitioned into rocking his fully upgraded primary, the SPECNA ARMS - SA-H09.

Sam was chasing more reliability and a weapon that delivered incredible range, accuracy and trigger response. Using the SA-H09 as a base for looks, the internals have been fully gutted and kitted out with a GATE Titan setup, motor, gears, bearings, piston and piston head have all been changed to allow Sam to now rock a single shot DMR build all day long. Also a quick note, Sam rocks NUPROL m4 magazines that are feeding flawlessly for him and resulting in not breaking the bank with buying spares.

As with quite a few of our staff now, optics are crucial and investing in the right one is made easy thanks to our VORTEX range and finance deals too. Sam loves his VORTEX - Strikefire 2, if it ever gets shot out or accidentally damaged beyond use he gets a free replacement. No receipt or original box required to claim!

With Sam rocking a DMR and having a single shot lock, high FPS build he runs a pistol all the time as a backup. Sam say this is his pride and joy out of all of his collection, the Socom Gear - Special Edition Punisher 1911. Completely standard and combined with his NUPROL - Drop Leg holster platform he runs this pistol in any environment.

Now onto the gear. From the head down Sam rocks a budget setup that works perfectly for him! You don't need to spend a fortune, what you save on gear though usually ends up in the guns (100% the case for Sam).

From head to toe Sam wears:
