Explosive Airsoft Weekend!

What a weekend it was! Today we want to recap what we got up to at HALO MILL - Proving Grounds. We hope it might just wet your pewing appetite to visit the next game day.

Our last game day was held on the 4th of November, there may have been a few fireworks going off through the late afternoon too...

The event was massive last year, but we knew this year was going to get even more hyped by players, so we had to deliver a few more bangs.

Recap on the days scoring:
Well, what can we say from today but thanks to everyone who came to operation treason and made it one to remember. We have never seen so many objectives so bitterly fought over and great sportsmanship from both side, we also hope you all enjoyed the final display on the bridge.

The day was won by the non-banded team with 759 to the blue teams 750 it was a close game all day and from all our staff we thank you for your efforts in making these events what they are.

What's coming next?:

Christmas special! It will be Proving Grounds last game day for 2018, so if you are keen to experience woodland like never before, and face a few hundred enemy targets then get clicking here to find out more and book a spot or two.

Make it silent! DIY Suppressor

Today, we bring you one of the most silent suppressors we have ever made! It was easy.

What have we used?

You either want your rifle as loud as possible, as quiet as possible... or you aren't bothered at all. But most of us prefer a silent AEG, GBB gun or sniper rifle. Well, we have just made the most functional Airsoft Suppressor we have ever had our hands on.

What have we used? We started off with an "ASG - HUSH XL Suppressor - Black". This suppressor is a 14mm CCW fitment so will fit most AEG and GBB rifles out there. It also comes with an adaptor to fit the following sniper rifles:

  • Cyber - Gun Mauser SR L96 .308
  • ASG - Urban Sniper Rifle
  • ASG - STEYR SSG 69 Sniper Rifle

For the purpose of this blog, we have installed it onto an ASG - STEYR SSG 69 Sniper Rifle.

The insides of the suppressor have been packed out with just ordinary foam you can find in a rifle or pistol hard case or even from music shops that are used to line guitar cases.

How did we do it?:

The suppressor has a long white internal tube but it is solid with a surrounding void and then the actual suppressor can. You can see in the image below exactly what we mean:

The first step is to drill as many holes as possible into this white tube, we recommend you try to hold it in a vice to do this. Please be careful as drill bits can slip! We used our in-store pillar drill in our workshop for this. You could dremmel in some slots instead but ideally make your holes as small as possible to avoid your foam packing squeezing through and catching your BBs. You can see the image below of how we have drilled out the internal spacer:

Now... RAM IT! Cram the empty space full of foam. We had a spare piece of foam knocking about:

We then cut it into thin slices so we could pack it out:

Simply cram the foam in, the tube spacer slots into the end cap, so keep it pressed in firm with one finger whilst pushing the foam in. We used an old inner barrel to help push the foam in, it was a little tricky as the foam may split:

Now add foam all around to keep the tube straight:

Once done, check there is no foam poking through your pre-drilled hole:

Now, all you have to do is screw on the end cap, keep the spacer tube straight and job done! Screw it onto your rifle and enjoy your DIY mods.
