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.

If you also fancy working with ourselves on any future news, video content and more then drop us an email to karl@patrolbase.co.uk

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:
