LOADOUT | MULTICAM BLACK X BLACK!

Hey friends!

Welcome back to the blog! Today I have another set-up post for you, in this blog, we'll be looking at my MultiCam Black X Black loadout that I'm particularly keen on for CQB in the winter!

For the helmet, I'm running the Team Wendy EXFIL LTP in Black. The EXFIL LTP is a lightweight polymer bump helmet that gives great impact protection and a stable, comfortable platform for mounting night-vision devices (and other accessories). It features a built-in NVG shroud, a Zorbium foam liner along with a CAM FIT Retention System that has easily adjustable Cam Lock sliders, and a micro-adjustable BOA Fit System. I've tried a lot of different helmets in my time, from my very first Nuprol FAST helmet to an FMA Airframe and my most recent PTS MTEK FLUX. The Team Wendy EXFIL LTP is by far the most expensive helmet I've used during my time airsofting, but it is also the most comfortable to wear for extended periods of time and the protection it offers is second to none.



I've accessorised it with the TW EXFIL Carbon & LTP 2.0 Rails and the TW EXFIL Peltor Headset Adapters which hold my Howard Leight Honeywell Impact Sport headset which I use for comms and hearing protection. As I haven't yet scored an affordable set of Peltors, I had to do a little bit of jimmying to get these off their band and to fit on the Peltor mounts, they are by no means perfect (they pop off from time to time) but they work whilst I'm still on the lookout for a set of Peltors.

I have the EXFIL LTP in black but as I run mostly green kit I have the EXFIL LTP Rail 2.0 Ranger Green Cover to match it to my BDU and to give it some texture - I'm not a fan of smooth, shiny helmets (that innuendo). To help offset the weight of my Night-Vision, I have the EXFIL Counterweight Kit in Black, of which I'm currently using 2 of the lead weights included in the kit.

To accessorise the cover, I have a Mantra Strobe which has a red light function and an IR light function - this is super helpful during night ops - using the red light to signify being a dead player and using the IR to help teammates with NV know where I am. We love a patch or two so I've added the Afraid Of The Dark Gucci patch and an Afraid Of The Dark 'Gang Shit' patch.


For my chest rig, I'm wearing the VX Buckle Up Utility Rig from Viper with an OPS Modular Fanny Pocket. This rig closely resembles the Spiritus Systems MK4. It works in a modular system with the VX range of inserts to suit your weapon magazines in the main pouch that is located at the rear of the rig to completely customise your rig to your playing needs. Both compartments are Velcro-lined to be used with these inserts too and the front lid is removable for easy access to inserts placed in the front compartment. It has front and rear Velcro ID panels that are quite sizeable meaning plenty of spaces for patches or adding extra VX inserts/holsters. It is also VX Buckle Up compatible meaning it can be used with the new VX plate carrier and has quick-release buckles throughout. 

The rig is completely adjustable via the sizing adjustment side and shoulder straps and ‘fits most’. I found it was easy to adjust and fit my frame well on one of the smallest strap configurations. For this set-up, I'm using the 9mm SMG inserts and I've utilised the half flap too which I picked up for around £9 on Amazon! Bargain!

For my pack, I'm using the VX Charger Pack in place of the straps that are supplied with the VX Buckle Up Chest rig. This gives my back more protection from BBs, especially when playing indoors, and allows me to carry equipment into the field - including BBs, speed loaders, a water bladder on hot game days, etc which in turn can help balance out the weight of the CR when it’s fully loaded up! 


For my belt, I'm using the MultiCam Black Cobra Belt from the Deadly Customs Belt Builder that is made from 2″ MilSpec webbing which is rated up to 5500lbs. The webbing is doubled up, giving it a dual-layer construction making it one of the strongest in the UK, so it won't roll when you take out a mag. It also features a genuine 50mm AustriaAlpin Cobra Buckle that is rated for 2000lbs! It's super comfortable and has an inner belt with loop Velcro. 

As this is a CQB set-up, I've kept my belt build lightweight and slick. I have a Deadly Customs DC4 Olight Holster in grey for my pistol. This holster uses the torch for retention so it's perfect when you want to use it with more than one pistol. You can adjust the fit of the holster by adjusting the screws on the side of the holster. To attach it to the belt I've mounted it on a Safariland QLS on a mid-ride with a thigh strap.

 I have also accessorised the belt with a 40mm grenade holster, an M4 5.56 Shooters Style Magazine Holster and 2 Glock Shooters Style Magazine Holsters all from Deadly Customs!

AEG | UMAREX/VFC HECKLER & KOCH HK MP7 A1 GEN 2 AEG

Hi friends! 

Welcome back to the blog. Today I have another AEG review for you, and in this one, we’ll be looking at the Umarex/VFC Heckler & Koch HK MP7 A1 Gen 2 AEG from Evike Europe!

 

The Umarex/VFC MP7 AEG is a full-sized and accurate 1:1 replica of the MP7 SMG from Heckler and Koch. It is a fully licensed replica so it has all the correct markings and trades just like the real thing. It is manufactured mostly from a high-density polymer with Aluminium Rails, stock bars, sights, controls and a steel flash hider, body pins and screws making this build lightweight but also durable. 

At the front of this compact SMG is the steel CNC MP7 birdcage style flash hider - which is correct to the latest variant and is attached using 12mm CW threads. It is fitted with a folding vertical front grip and has attachment points for additional RIS rails (which aren’t included in the box). It has a full-length 20mm RIS/RAS Rail system that is perfect for adding red dot sights or maybe a PEQ box to store an external battery. There are two sling points at the front of the body - one on either side. On the body, we can find the fully ambidextrous controls making this a great platform for both right and left-handed shooters. At the rear, there is a 4-position retractable sliding stock. 



As this is the Gen 2 model, internally it boasts a full-sized AEG gearbox with a capable high-speed motor, next-generation micro fire control and FET. It does also have empty magazine detection which means that it cuts off on after the last round, this makes it more realistic to operate. 




It comes neatly packaged in an H&K branded box that has a carry handle. On removing the replica from the box you can immediately tell that it is a true 1:1 scale replica - which can be quite surprising if you are used to the smaller TM or KWA models. It is lightweight and has a textured finish which looks and feels great. The construction feels sound - there is no wobble or flex. 


Now we’ve got the features out of the way and got hands-on, it’s time to battery it up and take it on the range. The battery goes in a small compartment at the front of the replica and is accessed by a cap. I used a small 7.4v Lipo - which is what is recommended for the replica. I’ve heard on the grapevine that using an 11.1v Lipo can damage the replica so I didn’t want to chance it on anything more than a 7.4v. It chonographed in at a respectable 323 FPS on a 0.20g BB with a pretty average rate of fire and it was consistent. It fires with no issues on both semi-auto and full-auto. For such a small AEG it also has pretty good range - I probably wouldn’t use it for a woodland skirmish but urban or CQB? It would be a great choice of primary. Its small size and weight mean that it is easy to manipulate and move around corners quickly and it wouldn’t be too heavy to use for an extended period of time say a 24-hour event. Overall, I really like it. It is easy to use and really fun to shoot too. This is probably going to be one of my favourite CQB primaries. 


From Evike Europe, the Umarex/VFC Heckler & Kock HK MP7 A1 Gen 2 AEG retails for €429.90. In the box, you get the Umarex H&K MP7 A1 AEG, a 120-round magazine, folding vertical foregrip, removable iron sights and the user manual. You can save 15% before shipping with the code ‘FEMMEFATALE15’

SET-UPS | MULTICAM BLACK BELT SET-UP!

Hey friends! 

Welcome back to the blog! Whilst I was going through my set-up posts last week I realised I’d never done an in-depth write-up on what exactly I have on my MultiCam Black belt set-up so here we are! 


The base belt for this build is a MultiCam Black Cobra Belt from the Deadly Customs Belt Builder that is made from 2″ MilSpec webbing which is rated up to 5500lbs. The webbing is doubled up, giving it a dual-layer construction making it one of the strongest in the UK, so it won't roll when you take out a mag. It also features a genuine 50mm AustriaAlpin Cobra Buckle that is rated for 2000lbs! It's super comfortable and has an inner belt with loop Velcro. 

As this is a set-up that is more catered to CQB, I've kept it super slick, simple and lightweight. To hold my sidearm, I have a Deadly Customs Signature Glock Holster in grey. This holster uses the trigger and lower frame for retention. You can adjust the fit of the holster by adjusting the screws on the side of the holster. To attach it to the belt I've mounted it on a Safariland QLS on a mid-ride with a thigh strap. 


Next up, I have a 40mm grenade holster from Deadly Customs to keep my QUAKE 8 and Neutron grenades secure. This 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). Read my full review here. 

Next, I have a Deadly Customs M4 5.56 Shooters Style Magazine Holster.

The M4 shooter's style mag holsters are also made from genuine 2mm P1 Kydex and have aggressive Shooter styling. They are manufactured to fit all M4 mags. Like the Glock holster, each Mag holster has 2 adjustable retention screws to customise it to the user. These have been designed so they can be stacked on top of each other and mounted either way to suit different players. They are also available in tan, green and black, and retail for £22.99. 


Last but not least, I have 2 Deadly Customs Glock Shooters Style Magazine Holsters

The Glock shooters style mag holsters are constructed from genuine 2mm P1 Kydex and are a redesign of their larger big brother. They're shorter, lighter and have more aggressive styling but still offer the same retention. They fit all Airsoft Glock 17, 18, 19, 22 and 34 magazines - I use mine for my Redwolf Airsoft X Agency Arms EXA. Each mag holster has 2 adjustable retention screws so you can adjust it to your play style and environment. They also can be canted forward or backwards by 10 or 20° using the mounting holes. These are also available in tan, black and green and cost £22.99.
