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.

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 reinforcedĀ 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.
