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 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:

G&G Feature – Trent From NUPROL!

As it's a bit of a G&G themed week here on our home-page, we managed to grab Trent from NUPROL last week to strike a pose or two in his Airsoft gear. Today we're featuring one of the Airsofters from the industry that supplies many retailers with your favourite NUPROL, G&G and other branded Airsoft products.

When he's not busy running up and down the country, Trent enjoys the Airsoft but only with the big boys! Not a personal fan of small compact Airsoft weapons, Trent loves to run decked out M15/M16 and support weapons. Today he's featured with the G&G - CM16 LMG. Combined with the 2500rnd box magazine and included vertical foregrip, he can run and gun or lay and spray all day.

With Trent working within NUPROL, it's only sensible to run what he trusts and rep the brand! Decked out in NUPROL - Chest Rig and mid-capacity M4 magazines to suit, he will never be out of ammo for long.

Under the rig and armour, Trent is a huge fan of KRYPTEK, a once very popular camouflage option that is now rarely seen on the market here in the UK. This camo works amazingly outdoors and is available in a range of different prints.

As for hands and eye protection, Trent runs cut off fingered Oakley gloves and BOLLE safety glasses. Lastly, a little bit of neck protection is provided by a Shemagh scarf.
