ACCESSORIES | DEADLY CUSTOMS 40MM GRENADE HOLSTER

Hey friends! 

Welcome back to the blog! Today I’ll be giving you my thoughts on the 40mm Grenade Holster from Deadly Customs. There are SO many different carrying options for airsoft impact grenades on the market right now from traditional 40mm pouches to lightweight Kydex holsters so it can be pretty overwhelming to choose a carrying system that works for you. I personally prefer Kydex holsters to traditional fabric pouches for their durability and also retention. Deadly Customs is a relatively new company on the scene so I figured it was time to try out their products.


The 40mm Grenade Holster from Deadly Customs is a Kydex carrying system that has been designed specifically for airsoft impacts that is compatible with any MOLLE system. Although there’s really not a great deal to talk about in terms of features as they are a super simple bit of kit – just moulded thermoplastic with an attachment system, this simply means there’s less to go wrong. One of the main selling points of Kydex carriers is that they are really lightweight so are perfect for low drag loadouts. 

They can be attached to a plate carrier or belt with either a malice clip or combat loop (which are compatible with any MOLLE system) that you select at the point of ordering. For all of my 40mm grenade holsters from DC I have opted for the malice clip (out of habit mostly). I like the malice clips because they’re easy to attach/detach when needs be and they’re also secure. Although you can attach them to any MOLLE system, I prefer to have mine on my belt set-up. The holsters allow them to be within easy reach so the deployment of them is smooth when needs be. They’re also easy to reindex. 

The 40mm grenade holster from Deadly Customs fits all of the following: all versions of the Tectonic Innovations Quake Grenades, the Tectonic Innovations Neutron, TRMR, Alphatec Grenades, Pulse Armament B1 Grenades, EG WP40 Smoke Grenades, TAG Rounds and the Oshiboom Grenades (however as the Oshibooms are a little smaller than the other 40mm grenades on this list Deadly Customs recommends a few wraps of tape around the grenade to make it fit more securely) 

The holsters are available in Black, Olive Drab Green, Coyote Brown and the Deadly Cus-Tom graphic print (for those that want something a little different). They all retail for £16.99 from the Deadly Customs website (where you can use my discount code ‘femmefatale’ to save 10% on your entire order) or you can also find them at stockists such as Extreme Airsoft, High Pressure Airsoft and Fire Support.

GUNS | SPECNA ARMS SA-B12!

Hey friends! 

Welcome back to the blog! For the first review of March I’m looking at the Specna Arms SA-B12 AEG from Gunfire


If you’re a regular reader of the blog, you’ll know I’ve reviewed a few guns from the Specna Arms range of AEGs and the SA-B12 is another M4 replica in this affordable line of AEGs. This model, like many of the others in the SA range is made mostly from a zinc/aluminium alloy and reinforced with steel parts which includes all the screws, pins and sling swivels! The most notable outward feature of the SA-B12 is the 8”, modular, keymod handguard. The handguard has a 22mm top RIS rail for sights etc (there’s a set of Ironsights included in the box), a polymer pistol grip and an adjustable stock with an anti-slip texture on the stock butt that houses the battery. It also has a standard flash hider that is mounted on a 14mm, left-hand thread. The body has been anodised and powder coated which gives this AEG more corrosion and abrasion resistance. The body has USMC markings in white which add to the look of the replica. In my review images I'm using a PTS EPM1 but there is a steel magazine included in the box that has complimentary markings to the body.




As for internals, the gearbox is reinforced with a steel mainspring guide on the cylinder head which is the element of the Enter & Convert system. There is a type 2 cylinder and a steel breaker and a metal hop-up chamber. The upgraded version is also equipped with some new, improved internal parts including a set of reinforced steel gears, a steel spring guide, lightweight, polymer piston, aluminium, sealed piston head and metal cylinder head. The Enter & Convert system allows the user to rapidly change the spring to upgrade or downgrade the FPS without the need for any specialist tools or equipment.

The SA-B12 is fully compatible with LiPo/LiFe and also Lithium iOn batteries, I did need to have it downgraded by the team at Gunfire before shipping, as the stock spring chrono’s around 410 FPS which is too hot for UK airsoft sites. There is an M90 spring included in the box, which allows the FPS to be lowered to around 310 FPS.

How is it to use? It has a good weight to it, but it isn’t too heavy which makes it feel sturdy. There’s no wobble and overall it does feel very durable. I think the aesthetics are good for the price, however, the only thing I didn’t particularly like about the SA-B12 was the stock it came with out of the box as it felt a little low end, however, it is comfortable to shoulder and given the price point of the AEG, it is understandable. Although we can’t play at the moment due to the national lockdown in England I did take it on a shooting course to get a feel for it. It’s a nice size to move around a tight CQB site, isn’t too heavy and shot consistently on both semi and full-auto firing modes.


At the moment it’s out of stock on the Gunfire website however it retails for €239,30 which is (at the time of writing) £207.55 which is a great budget-friendly price point!

GUNS | G&G GT ADVANCED RK74-CQB!

Hey friends! 

Welcome back to the blog! I hope you’re safe and well! Today I’m back with another tactical AK review and this time we’re looking at the G&G Armament GT Advanced RK74-CQB from Extreme Airsoft


All the way back in 2016, G&G released the RK74 line of AKs that consists of the CQB, E and T variants. In 2017, I reviewed the G&G GT Advanced RK74-T and whilst I enjoyed using this tactical AK, it was a bit long/heavy for my needs as a CQB player. Fast forward to 2021 and I’ve got my hands on the RK74-CQB variant and after running it on the Extreme Airsoft speed course I can now give you my thoughts on this airsoft AEG. 

Firstly let’s chat about how it looks! The G&G RK74-CQB is constructed from mostly metal - it has an alloy flash hider/amplifier, rail/handguard and an alloy receiver. The pistol grip, stock and magazine are all made from a lightweight polymer. It has a 7” keymod handguard that features top and bottom 20mm RIS rails and it also has the G&G GOS-V2 M4 stock which has a storage compartment for batteries and a rubber butt plate for comfort when shouldering the weapon.


In regards to internals, it is capable of Semi, 3 Round Burst (thanks to the preinstalled MOSFET) and full-auto firing modes. Alongside the MOSFET, it also features G&G’s ETU (Electronic Trigger Unit) which gives you a better trigger response. Meaning it’s faster and prevents the gearbox from locking on single shot - which is good news for those of us who play at strictly single shot sites! To change the Full Auto Fire mode to Three Round Burst you simply have to switch the selector to Semi-Auto Made and hold the Trigger for 10 Seconds. I chrono’d this weapon on 0.2g BB and it varied between a respectable 342-346 FPS. It has a linear hop-up unit (which I actually prefer to a rotary style hop-up) that can be accessed by the ambidextrous charging handle and it is front-wired to mini-Tamiya. The battery compartment has quite roomy which opens up battery options, and it has a hinge to open/close which makes it so much easier to battery up than a regular AK! As it has a built-in MOSFET I used an 11.1mAh Lipo. 



What about its field performance? It’s MUCH smaller than the T variant so this compact AEG was a dream to put through the speed course. It’s also a lot lighter so wasn’t as taxing as it’s lengthy counterpart. It fired consistently with no issues on both semi and full auto mode. Overall I think it’s a great rifle for the price, if I could change anything about it, I would probably update the rail to an MLOK rail system to update the look.

From Extreme Airsoft the RK74-CQB is £299.99 but you can use my code ‘femmefatale’ for a 5% discount.

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.

Photoshoot image - gun is not loaded and has no power source.

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.
