Hi everyone!

I'm back with another post from SHOT Show 2018 and today I'm going to give you the rundown on what caught my eye from G&G Armament! 2018 is set to be a huge year for G&G - they have a whole catalogue of new products being released, but as it would take a while to tell you about EVERY new product, I'm going to show you what I believe will be the ones to look out for!

First up is the CM16 LMG. That's right, G&G are releasing their very own AEG LMG. It is going to be available in two colourways - tan and black, to make it lightweight it will feature a polymer upper and lower receiver and internally it will have a MOSFET and an electronic trigger unit. What I am really impressed with regarding the new CM16 LMG is that it will come with a 2500 rd box mag, flip-up iron sights, a bipod AND dummy rounds already in the box so it'll look badass straight out of the box! The retail price is looking to be under $300 so I think this will be a big hit amongst airsofters looking for an affordable, lightweight LMG!


Another favourite of mine from SHOT Show 2018 are the new colourways for the ARP9 - last year G&G released the ARP in both the 556 and 9 mag variants and they were a big hit because of their compact form and awesome price point! This year we will be seeing the 9 variant in the new 'Black Orchid' and battleship grey colourways hitting the field! I didn't think the ARP9 could look any sexier, but G&G proved me wrong!

Lastly, are the new pistols that I'm excited to see from G&G - the new 1911 series and the GTP9! The new 1911 series from G&G Armament is a collection of 3 x 1911 pistols that all have slightly varied styling - the GPM1911 with a metal receiver and the classic wood finish inspired grips and the GPM1911 CP and GPM1911-P which will both feature a plastic receiver. Now usually I'm more of a Glock style girl but the look of the new pistols is so great that I am stoked to see how they perform on the field.

The new GTP 9 is a new GBB pistol from G&G that features a pretty nifty way of changing the hop up! It has a tool that is built into the pistol and can simply be removed and inserted into the barrel where it can be turned to change the hop up.

Hey everyone!

Today I have another post for you from SHOT Show 2018! In this post, we're going to be looking at the new HEXGRID Load Bearing Attachment System from 5.11 Tactical.

It's not every day that you see a new attachment system that could possibly replace the traditional MOLLE and that's why the new HEXGRID attachment system from 5.11 Tactical caught my eye at SHOT Show 2018! As the name suggests, HEXGRID is a load bearing system that works on the same principle as traditional MOLLE but instead has laser-cut hexagonal holes/attachment points in a grid pattern which resembles honeycomb. With the HEXGRID attachment system, you can configure pouches etc in 6 different configurations, whereas the traditional MOLLE system will only allow users to mount pouches vertically. What's really cool is that you could even go as far as mounting your pouches upside down, which would then give you 12 possible configurations. This new system gives users the ability to configure their bags and plate carriers in a whole new host of ways that we aren't currently able too.



Hey everyone!

Continuing on with my SHOT Show 2018 content, I have something for you that caught my eye from none other than Crye Precision - the CPC Extendable StKSS!

So this is Crye Precision's 'Structural Kinetic Support System (StKSS)' and although it's not an entirely new concept as we've seen various load transferring methods in the past, this allows the user to selectively transfer some or all of the weight of their Plate Carrier to their hips. The extendable StKSS allows the wearer to completely isolate their shoulders and spinal column from the weight being carried. Instead, the load is directly transferred to the hips and legs. It is compatible with the Crye Precision CPC™, Low Profile Blast Belt™, and AVS™ Belt. 



Hey everyone!

I’m back with another review, and this time I’m going to be looking at footwear for airsoft and reviewing the Quest Prime GTX W’s by one of the most well-known brands in airsoft - Salomon. Salomon has a great reputation amongst airsofters for being comfy, durable and waterproof footwear that have the grip and ankle support to support the nature of the sport, but are they all they’re cracked up to be?

The Quest Prime GTX women’s is an athletic style shoe by Salomon that is designed for hiking and backpacking. The design focuses on being lightweight and comfortable whilst still protecting the feet from the terrain and the elements! Let’s first chat about the specs, and we’ll start with the outer sole! The outer sole has High Traction Contagrip meaning you get an excellent grip even in tough terrain. The midsole comprises of injected EVA which is lightweight and absorbs shock well and a moulded shank which helps the sole keep its shape and support the arch of your foot. The Quest Prime GTX’s also have the advanced chassis – this is placed between the outer sole and midsole that maximizes motion control, energy management and protection for stable and comfortable use. The outer membrane of the boot is made of GORE-TEX, GORE-TEX is a material that gives you unparalleled breathability but is waterproof so it keeps your feet from getting wet! Overall, the specs/features are bang on.

When I got them out of the box I was quite taken aback by the colour of the shoe – instead of black they were to my surprise a bright blue, which isn’t the most tactical colour but when paired with my MultiCam Tropic combats it didn’t look too bad. I did see in some of the reviews online that the shoes run wide and were uncomfortable until broken in, but I typically wear either a 4 or 4.5 however for these I went for a size 5 as I wanted them to be a little roomier so I could layer the socks on in the winter time and I didn’t find them to run wide. They fit comfortably across my instep (top of foot), clung well to my heels and didn’t move around too much on my feet – they felt secure. When I first put them on, I wore them for around 8-9 hours in total at an indoor CQB site for a regular skirmish day and whilst they were stiff for the first few hours, I wouldn’t say they were uncomfortable. The heat of your feet will naturally soften the material of the shoes so after a couple of hours you can feel them loosening off. The grip was fantastic even in the parts of the site that had leaks. The sole manipulated relatively easily so they were a comfy pair to wear all day – my feet didn’t hurt and they weren’t sweaty thanks to the GORE-TEX technology. I haven’t quite gotten round to field testing them for waterproofing as of yet but someone spilling a whole mug of tea on your feet and them remaining dry is promising!

The Salomon Quest Prime GTX W’s boots retail for £140.00 which is a serious investment but they are without a doubt one of the comfiest pairs of shoes that I have ever worn. They are available in 3 colourways – grey/mint green, black/purple and the colour option that was sent to me the blue/orange. The colourway I received isn’t the most tactical colour, but it is fun, and you’d be hard-pressed to lose them!

Hey everyone!

Another post from SHOT Show 2018! In this post we're taking a quick look at the new Haley Strategic Partners Micro Chest Rig that caught my eye!

The new HSP Micro Chest Rig is reported to be hitting the market early March 2018! The permanent shell is comprised of 2 pistol mag carriers and an admin pouch, this is looking like it will cost around $130. The adaptable mag carriers (5.56,308/.762, MP5,MPX) seen behind the admin pouch can be inserted into the Chestrig and will be approximately $30 each. As always HSP know that colourways are important, the colourways for the new Mirco Chest Rig will reflect their popular colours that they already carry in the D3CR-X and D3CR-H chest rigs; Ranger Green, Coyote, Multi Cam, Black.

(In the image the new Micro Chest Rig is mounted to a Plate Carrier and has the multi-mission D3CR Hanger expansion, the Micro Chest Rig is sold separately to these)
