My First Airsoft Awareness Article is up! A Review of the WE Europe Nuprol BBs

As I mentioned a while back I have become a reporter for Airsoft Awareness, a group of Airsofters from around the globe that aim to increase the awareness of Airsoft by hosting international events, shows and publishing entertaining content! This is my first article as an AA reporter, a review about the WE Europe Nurpol Beebs! The article/Airsoft Awareness is available here: https://www.facebook.com/AirsoftAwareness/posts/1537420883204409:0
 
Enjoy! xo
"Femme here, this article is a review of the WE Europe Nuprol BBs. After posting a photograph on my Instagram account of a bottle of the 0.28g 6mm Diamond Grade BBs I had a fair few negative comments about their performance so I thought I’d give them a fair test and leave a review.
So the reason I chose these from the shelves and shelves of ammunition was a combination of things: the price was £9.99 for 3000 – very reasonable, the colour coded polymer that the BBs are made of means the weights are easily identifiable by sight and they are also diamond polished.
They are made from a high grade coloured polymer and diamond polished for a smooth and consistent finish meaning improved performance and less risk of damaging our precious kit. So I took these to my last skirmish on Sunday and loaded my mags with high expectations. I run a G&G GR4 G26 Black Rose with Blowback and I swapped between using 0.2g Blasters and the 0.28g Nuprol BBs and at first when my RIF started to get stuck mid cycle and locking when using the 0.28s I got concerned as to whether it was indeed the problems other users had described to me. However, once I switched to the 0.2s and the problem continued, it dawned on me that it wasn’t the BBs that were the issue, it was having my RIF on Semi and getting really trigger happy. I slapped it on full auto and it was sorted. After working out that it wasn’t the BBs that were the issue, I put the 0.28s back in and carried on. My AEG cycled very well using these and with the added weight behind them they appeared to pack more of a punch! I also run a GBB pistol, the WE Gen 4 Glock 18C and used the 0.28s in it and it cycled flawlessly.
Overall my experience with the WE Europe Nuprol BBs was a very positive one, as they were affordable, a cute colour and fed/cycled well in both my AEG and GBB.
 
Pros:
·         Cheap - £9.99 for 3000 BBs at the retailer I visited.
·         They are done in a range of weights.
·         Diamond polished.
·         Colour coded polymer makes them easy to identify.
·         Their weight adds a nice little punch (great for those cheeky NHT J)
·         Bottle has a flat side to stop BB spillage.
·         Feed well in both AEGs and GBB pistols.
Cons:
·         The heavier the BB the lower the FPS – although the difference between 0.2s and 0.28gs isn’t too much."

WE Gen 4 Glock 18C Full Auto GBB Pistol Review!

Hey everyone! This article is my thoughts on the WE Gen 4 Glock 18C GBB pistol. In January I went to my local airsoft store with my birthday money in hand to see if anything there caught my eye! Whilst looking at Pistols in the glass cases, I came across the WE Glock 18C. I think you may have gathered that aesthetics are very important to me when it comes to my gear, I like it to be colourful with matching attachments - gone are the newbie days where I would attach black accessories to my FF26 Pink Storm! Although it's not a colourful gun, I've seen lots of people on Instagram getting them Hydrodipped or Cerakoted in gorgeous shades such as Tiffany blue so the possibilities for this gun and really making it my own were plentiful. The Glock 18C has clean lines and isn't too fussy. It comes with 2 sets of different back grips so it's very ergonomic and fits nicely in your hand. I have kept the original set on.

It measures a reasonable 202mm in length with a barrel length of  115mm and is quite weighty when the mag is inserted. It features an adjustable hop up system and semi/full auto firing modes. The magazine included holds 24 6mm BBs, but if like me you're a little trigger happy, investing in the extended mag or alternatively a bundle of regular mags will enable you to run this pistol for an entire skirmish. The FPS is around 300-330 FPS using 0.2g 6mm BBs and red gas. Red 3.0 gas is Nuprol's recommended gas for the blowback pistols
 
 
 The attachments I chose for my Glock are a mock suppressor, for this I needed a clockwise to anticlockwise adapter which works fine however it does work itself loose over time - I just make sure to tighten it up before a skirmish. I am also hoping to get an under barrel torch and maybe a red dot? I'm not sure about the red dot. We'll see haha!
 
 
 
 
This is my Femme Fatale loadout, which I plan on running at Tac House this weekend! My Glock, TRMR and a knife for some tacticool knife kills!
 
 
 
Now let's get down to the shooting! This is a video from my YouTube channel of me shooting the Glock at my local gun range. This pistol has great recoil and is super accurate despite that, packs a real punch and the full auto! It's all about the full auto. The sound and rate of fire is enough to make sure anyone who was running towards you is now running the opposite way. My only gripe is that sometimes when using red gas the gun doesn't cycle very well in the cold weather, which means I have had to use black 4.0 gas (this isn't recommended) to get a decent run out of it when the temp dips below 2 degrees. When the weather is warmer, it cycles perfectly on red gas. I am currently using 0.28g Nuprol BBs which packs a nice punch. I am really pleased with this fab little, affordable pistol and I'm really looking forward to running just this loadout on sunday :D

Pink TRMR by Concept Tactical Review.

Hey folks!
Here's a review about my newly purchased, rare Pink TRMR Impact Grenade by Concept Tactical! Now I know what you're thinking! 'Pink eurgh!', 'I bet that doesn't pack a punch' etc but believe me, the colour only makes it prettier (and more humiliating when it kills 8 of your team simultaneously ;)

 
So the TRMR is an impact grenade made by Concept Tactical. The TRMR - Tactical Reloadable Maritime Ready was designed as a multipurpose munitions delivery system for use on Maritime vessels, as we all know normal grenades have a tendency to create massive holes in everything and anything they come into contact with - not ideal if you're at sea haha. It is made from aircraft grade alluminium and stainless steel, so very sturdy and weighty. The munitions the device can deliver range from 12 gauge Magflash rounds to CS Chemical RIP rounds. When the TRMR is deployed, it discharges its payload when it makes contact with the deck/floor. Once the munitions have been deployed and the room is cleared, the device can then be retrieved and reloaded. This is currently the fastest reloadable inertia device on the market.
 
One of the main features that drew me to this product was that it had no silly pins or levers to lose! As I can be quite clumsy and knowing my luck I'd lose them! The T.T.A.S system inertia recoil firing system ensures that the device only detonates on contact with a hard surface from a height of 50cm. Which as well as being very safe can sometimes be a little inconvenient, it would be unfair of me to write this review without recognising the fact that sometimes the firing system isn't struck right and the TRMR doesn't go off. It doesn't happen often, but it does happen. I'd say about 1/20 throws. I thought it had happened to me the last game I played but it turned out that I threw the grenade whilst it was on safe...yeah.
 
So let's talk about how to arm and unarm the TRMR. You arm the device by unscrewing the base cap and priming it with your chosen munitions - for airsoft we use .209 shotshell primers which pack a nice little punch! Once the munitions are loaded, screw the base cap on. To deploy the munitions, twist the top half of the TRMR clockwise until it stops and so that the red band is visible on the top of the device, then lob it. Retrieve, twist, empty, reload, arm, lob it. Easy as that! Although I do recommend taping a glowstick to your grenade to make it retrieval easier and only arming it immediately before throwing it, as any sudden shock to the device could cause it to unleash its payload early!
 
Price - The TRMRs start at £79.99 and the .209 primers are £6.99 for 100 from www.jdairsoft.net which is very cheap when compared to the price of a standard disposable grenade at £3.00 a pop! Meaning that each bang will cost you less than 7p. 

 
Pros:
  • Cute.
  • As the pink model was very limited, my device is easy to recognise.
  • Individual serial numbers, so even if they do get mixed up you can identify yours!
  • Costs less than 7p per bang.
  • Safe.
  • Lighter than some other grenades on the market.
  • Doesn't require gas or BBs, just shotshell primers.
  • Easy to reload.
  • Great for CQB/Urban games.
  • Awesome.
 
Cons:
  • High initial cost.
  • Not great for Woodland games.
  • Doesn't always fire.
  • Heavy.
  • Could be easily lost.
Here is a vid that the guys at JD airsoft made to showcase the TRMR, I'll leave you with that!

Interview with Chris Williams, Founder of the United Kingdom AirsoftCommunity (UKAC)

This week I conducted an interview with Chris Williams, the Founder of the UKAC (United Kingdom Airsoft Community).




 A community of Airsofters on Facebook.com,  which I have been an active member of for about 2 months. My own experiences with this community have been very positive, members look out for their fellow airsofters and are more than willing to help - 3 members even helped me track down what appears to be the last of the illusive and rare pink TRMRs by Concept Tactical. The group is full of helpful topics, photographs and threads with a healthy amount of banter and the occasional 'battle of the memes' which is always good fun!



Here's what Chris had to say:   

So Chris, what is your airsofting background? - How long have you been playing? Where is your home site? What's your weapon of choice?
I've been Airsofting for 10 years, I live in Bristol however I travel all over the place to play, my favorite site is the mall in reading.
My weapon of choice, tricky one, only last week I bought a G&G CM16 raider, which I love, it's small, light, easy to Manoeuvre round corners and very accurate, very pleased with such a cheap gun.

What is the history of UKAC? When was it set up and what is it's purpose?
UKAC was set up around April 2013. So almost 2 years. Its purpose is to allow the Airsoft community to share knowledge, experience, trade, sell, buy and most of all talk to other players when you need advice. I came up with the idea when I wanted advice but couldn't find a suitable place or person to ask.
Every other group or forum out there only allows a specific subject, where we allow everything.

What was your vision for UKAC? 
My vision for the UKAC is to make it a well known brand players can trust, and use it to help support the sport and its businesses and sites.

What are the best and worst things about the UKAC?
The best is thing is its growth, we are now the biggest UK Airsoft group with over 4000 members.
We get on average 50 new member requests a day and my team of admins work hard to ensure only actual Airsoft players are allowed to join.
The worst has to be managing it, I couldn't do it alone, my team of 8 admins work throughout the day to monitor and control the group.

How do you see the group progressing?
I would like to see the name and brand move into sites and retail stores to help put trust and focus back into the support. Many players are now buying online or from China which takes its toll on the few walk in stores left around the UK. I don't want it to just be a facebook group I want it to be a well known brand.

As you know the sport is dominated by men, do you have a female admin? And is there a strong female presence in the community? If not, do you plan on changing this?
This is a challenge, the sport is mainly focused on men and its hard to aim it at females, I currently don't have a female admin on my team but that may change in the future. I think I need a woman's opinion to help us with this topic.

What is your opinion of women playing airsoft?
Women playing Airsoft is great, I haven't seen that many at games but it would be good to see more.

Finally is there anything you want to say?
The UKAC is here to support any Airsoft player whether new or experienced, young or old, man or woman. As the sport is not advertised in the world new players only hear about Airsoft by word of mouth. I want to change this, I believe the sport is under utilised and could be so much more.
