GUNS | KWA RONIN 47!

Hi friends!

Welcome back to the blog! We’re once again smashing these reviews out! Today we’re looking at the KWA RONIN 47 from Extreme Airsoft (you can check out the unboxing here!) and although we aren’t playing at the moment, I took this out on the target course at Extreme Airsoft so I can give you my thoughts on this tactical AK.


The KWA RONIN 47 is KWA’s answer to the tactical AK. Like the KWA KAIJU47 that I reviewed earlier in the week, it also has a 7″ MLOK handguard, a Gen. 2 PDW ‘Tanker’ stock, the new “Cutter” muzzle brake and a paddle-style magazine release. The rail and upper receiver are metal, and the lower receiver is an Aluminium mix. It also has the PTS Enhanced Polymer Grip and the Enhanced Back-Up Ironsights. It looks sleek in all black.





As for the internals, it also has the AEG 2.5 gearbox that many of the other KWA range have, the VPS system - the Variable Performance System - that enables the player to adjust the FPS with the use of a tool (which is included in the box), a reinforced radiused mechbox and it is ready for a MOSFET to be dropped in (but doesn’t have one as standard). The RONIN 47 can be powered by either a NiMh or LiPo/LiFe battery and it’s (back) wired to Deans for a more reliable connection. Like most PDW style stocks the battery space is limited, but there are aftermarket parts such as the Airtech TBEU Tanker Battery Extension that are compatible with this model and is available from Extreme as well which will give you more room and make it easier to battery up. Even with the battery extension, the Titan Power batteries are a tight fit but will fit at a push. There are of course other brands such as Nuprol who make batteries that do fit. Although the lack of battery space isn’t a huge issue, it is something to be aware of.

In the box, it comes with one proprietary black KWA RN47 120 round magazine and a tool to adjust the VPS system along with all the necessary paperwork.


I also ran this through the speed course we created at Extreme Airsoft (it’s really had a hammering recently). After I spent some time with the KAIJU 47 (that has the GATE Titan MOSFET) I spent a good couple of hours on the target system with the RONIN 47 to see if there were any big differences. Like the KAIJU 47, it fired consistently with no issues on both semi and full auto mode (as it doesn’t have the Titan we didn’t swap out full auto for burst fire). As it’s the same weight and build as the KAIJU 47 it’s also easy to manoeuvre around the course and wasn’t too long even with the stock fully extended.

As for price, the RONIN 47 retails from Extreme Airsoft for £359.99.

GUNS | KWA RONIN KAIJU 47 SPECIAL EDITION!

Hi friends!

Welcome back to the blog! We’re smashing through the reviews at the moment and today I’m back with another airsoft AEG review! Last week I unboxed the KWA KAIJU 47 from Extreme Airsoft (you can check out the unboxing here!) and although we aren’t able to play at the moment, I have tested this out on the target course at Extreme so I can give you my thoughts on this unique looking airsoft gun.


The KWA KAIJU 47 is a special limited edition of the KWA RONIN 47 in collaboration with KAIJU017 - a street clothing brand that is inspired by Japanese and streetwear culture that has brought an aggressive and disruptive vibe to the RONIN 47. It has a 7″ MLOK handguard, a PDW 'Tanker' stock, KWA’s new “Cutter” muzzle brake and a paddle-style magazine release. It also has a tuneable speed Trigger. One of the most notable features of the KAIJU 47 is the cerakoting - each part of the rifle is a different shade of gold/bronze and it is adorned with graphic writing. Now I’m not a fan of the gold on the mag or stock, I think it’s quite a tacky colour but the more I look at it, the more I like the gun as a whole. The rail and upper receiver are metal, and the lower receiver is an Aluminium mix - this at first confused me - there isn’t much information on the KWA website about the materials used and at first touch, it doesn’t feel like metal. It also has the PTS Enhanced Polymer Grip and the Enhanced Back-Up Ironsights.




In my unboxing video comment section, a subscriber told me to look at the fire selector as the modes are marked as ‘endtimes’ rather than semi and ‘doomsday’ rather than full-auto. I think this is a nice touch!


Let’s chat about the internals! Like many of the other KWA Ronin range, it has the AEG 2.5 gearbox, the VPS system - the Variable Performance System - that enables the player to adjust the FPS with the use of a tool (which is included in the box) and most notably a GATE TITAN MOSFET, which gives you the option to adjust trigger sensitivity, pre-cocking boost, fire selector mode, burst mode, rate of fire and it also provides a low battery warning and battery protection. 

The KAIJU 47 can be powered by either a NiMh or LiPo/LiFe battery and it’s wired to Deans (also known as a T Plug) for a more reliable connection. Like most PDW style stocks the battery space is limited straight out of the box, but the Airtech TBEU Tanker Battery Extension is compatible with the KAIJU 47 and is available from Extreme as well which will give you more room and make it easier to battery up. Even with the battery extension, the Titan Power batteries are a tight fit but will fit at a push. There are of course other brands such as Nuprol who make batteries that do fit. Although the lack of battery space isn’t a huge issue, it is something to be aware of.

In the box, it comes with one proprietary KWA RN47 120 round magazine which is cerakoted in the same gold shade as the stock, a link for the GATE Titan and a tool to adjust the VPS system along with all the necessary paperwork.

Now since I haven’t been able to skirmish the KAIJU 47 due to lockdown 3.0, I instead chose to run it through the speed course we created at Extreme Airsoft. I don’t think that range testing an airsoft gun is enough for an accurate review - you need to run around with it, reload it, manoeuvre it to see how it would perform in a game. I spent a good couple of hours on the target system and it fired consistently with no issues on both semi and burst mode (I prefer this to full-auto so gave that a whirl instead). It weighs just under 3kg - so it has a nice weight to it but isn’t too testing on the arms. It was also easy to manoeuvre around the course and wasn’t too long even with the stock fully extended.

As for price, the KWA KAIJU 47 is priced at £649.99, which is considerably more expensive than its counterpart, the RONIN 47 which retails from Extreme Airsoft for £359.99. There are a few reasons for the price difference, the KAIJU 47 is a special limited edition so once they are sold out, they’re gone - this is an item for the collectors out there. It also has a GATE Titan installed already whilst the RONIN 47 does not have a MOSFET as standard.

UNIFORM | PRIMAL COMBAT G3 UNIFORM SET!

Hi friends!

Welcome back to the blog! Today I have another review for you and in this one, we’ll be looking at the Primal Combat G3 Uniform set in MultiCam from gunfire.com. In October last year, Gunfire flew me out for the annual calendar shoot and whilst I was there I wore this uniform set for one of the photo sets, I liked it so much that I brought it home with me! I’ve worn them a few times since so I can now give you my opinion on them!

Photoshoot image - Gun has no battery and the mag is unloaded

The Primal Combat G3 Uniform set consists of a pair of combat trousers and a combat shirt that are made from a Polycotton blend material that has been reinforced with Rip-Stop. The shirt is a traditionally cut combat shirt that has 2 pockets on the arms. The pockets have additional hook and loop velcro on them for patches etc. The sleeve cuffs are adjustable thanks to the Velcro fastener and it has a stiff collar with a YKK zipper.

The trousers are a standard G3 style with elastic inserts around the knees that have a bit of stretch and they’re adjustable thanks to the velcro fasteners at the knees and leg cuffs. The trousers are laden with pockets, with a total of 10 pockets including 2 cargo side pockets, 2 pockets on the thigh, a small pocket for a flashlight or a knife and zipped back pockets to keep equipment safe.




Both the shirt and the trousers have space to insert protective pads (kneepads and elbow pads) and these are included with the set. As I brought this set home in my luggage from the trip I didn’t take the protective set to save on weight and as other G3 knee pads fit in the trousers, I knew I could just insert another set that I have at home - I’m currently using my G3 Crye knee pads. The protective pads that are included are lightweight plastic. As I haven’t used the knee pads included I can’t really evaluate them however they look like they would offer ample protection!

How is the quality? The fabric on the torso of the shirt is really soft and comfortable on the skin, it’s also pretty lightweight and quick to dry when wet. The Rip-Stop fabric feels strong and durable and it is also comfortable on the skin. 

They are sized in S, M, L and XL. Usually, in combat uniforms, I wear the smallest size but in these, the small was a little too snug around my waist and a little too short on the legs so the kneepads were higher up than they should have been when I tried them on so I opted to go for a size up and got the medium. The trousers have room around the waist and buttocks so they’re comfortable to bend down in and move around in. Whilst they are roomy, they don’t look baggy because of the adjustability. The shirt is also a medium and is a good fit around the shoulders/arms but it is quite long on the body - this isn’t really a problem as I tuck my shirts into my trousers. Overall, it is a comfortable, generous fit.

The G3 Uniform set isn’t just available in MultiCam, it is also available in Woodland, Black, Olive and ATACS. This set would usually set you back €76,02 but at the time of writing it was on sale for €59,30 which is around £52 at the current exchange rate. I think the full price, price point is very reasonable for a full set of uniform and affordable for most airsofters, but at its current sale price, I think it’s even better value for money.

PYRO | THE NEUTRON IMPACT GRENADE FROM TECTONIC INNOVATIONS!

Hey friends!

Welcome back to the blog! Today I have another review for you, and in this one, we’ll be looking at the new Neutron Impact Grenade from Tectonic Innovations.


The Neutron is the new single-shot impact grenade from the makers of the Quake 8 - Tectonic Innovations. It is crafted from Stainless steel and aircraft-grade Aluminium for longevity and durability. Like the Quake8 it also uses a 209 primer as its munition. It features a ‘twist to safe’ mechanism and locking pins for the fire and safe positions. The new Neutron can be holstered in any 40mm pouch or a custom made Deadly Customs holster. The new impact is available in a few different colours - black, red, orange, blue and purple.


One of its most notable features are the 2 windows that are on the base of the grenade - these take 40mm glow sticks (think the fishing float ones) to make it easy to find in dark places. Once the little glow sticks are cracked you can insert them into the window spaces and they’ll glow for a good few hours. There is one window on each side, which means wherever it falls you should be able to see the glow and locate your device. They’re easy to remove - on my grenade I can tip the bottom of the grenade upside down and they both fall out with ease. When reloading the Neutron’s 209 primer, these will also come out when you tip it upside down so be prepared to catch them!


Like the Quake 8, all of the internal parts of the Neutron are replaceable, so if anything should ever go wrong with your ‘nade instead of replacing the entire unit (for £69.99) you can simply replace the part - this works out much cheaper for the end-user. Most parts are available from dealers but if they’re out of stock they are available direct from Tectonic Innovations. The customer service at Tectonic is fantastic. The Neutron is manufactured in the UK as well so no long waiting times for parts.

Aesthetically it is a similar size and appearance to the Quake8 however I much prefer that the bottom of the grenade is a different colour. The grey anodised bottom piece goes with all colours of the Neutron, however, I think purple is the one that stands out the most. The writing on the Neutron is easy to see and read in low light too. After the test throws, my Neutron does have a few scuffs and chips but the anodising has held up well.

So how does it function? The Neutron is definitely more sensitive than the Quake8. For all of my grenade tests, I do 25 throws on hard ground and then a few throws on the softer ground at different heights etc to test the sensitivity. During my tests, it went off on all of the hard ground throws and it off on 45% of the softer ground throws. Now it is worth noting that BFG (Blank Firing Grenades) such as the Neutron are designed to be used on hard ground. So it going off on softer ground is a bonus. If the ground is really soft and muddy it does struggle but if the ground is dry it goes off every time. I wouldn’t recommend using this in a woodland game though as they are expensive bits of kit and you don’t want to lose it in a bush. The glow stick windows are a nice touch and do really help when the site is dark. I did find if it lands funny in a corner that the glow sticks aren’t very visible but there’s generally a faint glow so it worked as it should.


It is worth noting that when I first used my Neutron, the twist arming function was quite stiff but after a few uses it does ease up (I’m sure you could speed this up with some WD40)

The Neutron retails for £69.99. A complaint that I heard from social media users when I reviewed the Quake 8 was that the Quake 8 was too expensive (at £134.99 for 7 bangs). My first TRMR cost £79.99 alllll the way back in 2014/2015 and that was the same concept - a twist to arm single shot blank firing grenade that used .209 primers. Taking this into account I think £69.99 is a really good price point for the product. The Neutron is available from all Tectonic Innovations dealers, including Extreme Airsoft. You can also use my 'femmefatale' code for 5% off!

GUNS | KWA QRF MOD 3 FIRST IMPRESSIONS!

Hey friends! 


Welcome back to the blog! I hope you are safe and well. Today I have another first impressions/product overview for you! As we’re still in lockdown in England we’re unable to play but I’m excited for when we can finally get back out there so I’m going to be testing out a bunch of airsoft guns in the meantime. Today I’m looking at the KWA QRF MOD 3 from Extreme Airsoft



First, let’s chat about the externals - what sets this AEG apart from the other QRF models is the vertical magazine design. The QRF MOD 3 has a 6” Tactical M-LOK handguard, a PDW Stock, the PTS Enhanced Polymer Grip as standard and PTS Enhanced Back-Up Ironsights are included in the box. It looks like a pistol calibre carbine which has been super popular amongst airsofters. The compensator/flash hider is also a nice touch Aesthetically I think the MOD 3 looks great. 





In regards to internals, the MOD 3 features a high-torque motor, a switch life extender, an upgraded high-speed gear set and a 2.5 gearbox. Like the other KWA models that have the 2.5 gearboxes, the QRF MOD 3 has the Variable Performance System (VPS) that enables the player to adjust the FPS from 320 up to 360 FPS with the use of a tool (which is included in the box). Unfortunately, it doesn’t have a MOSFET straight out of the box which is a little disappointing but they can be installed. 


The MOD 3 can be powered by either a NiMh or LiPo/LiFe battery and it’s wired to Deans (also known as a T Plug) for a more reliable connection. Like most PDW style stocks the battery space is limited straight out of the box, but the Airtech TBEU Tanker Battery Extension is compatible with the MOD 3 and is available from Extreme as well which will give you more room and make it easier to battery up. Even with the battery extension, the Titan Power batteries aren’t really suitable but other brands such as Nuprol make batteries that do fit. Although the lack of battery space isn’t a huge issue, it is something to be aware of if you’re considering purchasing a MOD 3. 



Taking this on the range to get a feel for it - it has a decent rate of fire (measured at 20 on the chrono) and it functions well on both semi and full-auto. It’s easy to shoulder (the grip on the butt pad is a nice touch and aids stability) and the fluted mag well assists with fluid reloads. It weighs just under 3kgs - which is a good weight and it definitely gives you the feel of it being durable. I’m really interested in testing this during a game to get a feel for how it plays. 



How much is the KWA QRF MOD 3 From Extreme Airsoft it is £314.99, you can save 5% using my code ‘femmefatale’ (not an affiliate)
