AEG | G&G ARMAMENT ARP9 3.0

 Hi friends!

Welcome back to the blog. Today, I have another first impression for you in this post - on the G&G ARP9 3.0 from my friends at HC2 Airsoft.


The ARP9 3.0 is the latest iteration of G&G's iconic SMG, this time featuring a side folding skeleton stock and a new MOSFET integrated gearbox that is smaller and more efficient than its predecessor.




The ARP9 3.0 is mostly constructed from a high-density polymer making it tough and durable. At the front of this compact SMG is a short MLOK hand guard, followed by the G&G branded receiver (that has a full-length Picatinny running along its length) and at the rear of the rifle, we have a side-folding skeleton stock that also houses the battery.

Specs:
  • M-LOK Handguard
  • Side folding skeleton stock 
  • MOSFET Integrated Gearbox 
  • QD spring guide to allow for easy power tuning 
  • G&G pre-upgraded internals 
  • Ifrit 25K Motor-Short Axis orange (25000rpm)
  • Adjustable hop-up
The ARP9 3.0 features G&G's upgraded MOSFET system, which is more compact and efficient than its predecessor. Additionally, it has a QD spring guide for effortless power tuning without gearbox disassembly. Retaining G&G's renowned pre-upgraded internals, it still houses the impressive 25,000 RPM high-speed motor, ensuring the ARP9's signature rapid-fire rate.



Range test: During our range test it averaged around 312 FPS, perfectly site legal with the room to be upgraded. Its performance is what we would expect from G&G - consistent with good accuracy.

In the box, you get the G&G ARP9 3.0, a 68-Round Mid-Cap FCCM Magazine and the instruction manual. From my friends at HC2 Airsoft, the ARP9 3.0 retails for £339.99.

AEG | G&G FAR9!

Hi friends!

Welcome back to the blog. Today we're back with an AEG first impression, and in this one, we'll be looking at the G&G FAR9 from my friends over at HC2 Airsoft.


The FAR9 from G&G took IWA 2023 by storm and we finally have it in hand. The FAR9 is a 9mm style SMG airsoft rifle that folds down to a 3rd of its size for easy storage and transport. It features an MLOK handguard and a side folding stock.




The FAR9 folded away:


Specs:
  • Ultra-lightweight polymer receivers 
  • M-LOK handguard 
  • Picatinny / 20mm RIS rail 
  • 8mm ball bearing gearbox 
  • G&G MOSFET 
  • ETU 2.0 system 
  • Rear-wired CHFS folding stock 
  • FCCM 68-round magazine 
  • G&G Ifrit 25K long axis motor (25,000RPM) installed 
  • Rear-mounted loop for mounting slings 
  • Flip-up front and rear iron sights


Range test: During our range test, it chrono'd at 285 FPS, which is perfectly site-legal with the room to be upgraded although m,much lower than expected. Again, its performance is what we would expect from G&G - consistent with good accuracy.



In the box, you get the G&G FAR9, 68 Round Mid-Cap FCCM Magazine and the instruction manual. From HC2 Airsoft, it retails for £259.99.

GBB | VORSK VMP-1C!

Hi friends!

Welcome back to the blog. Today we're back with a GBB first impression, and in this one, we'll be looking at the VORSK VMP-1C from my friends over at HC2 Airsoft.



The VMP-1C from VORSK is the compact version of their already compact GBB SMG. It’s made from a high-density Polymer and has a QD sling socket at the rear rather than a folding stock making it tough, lightweight and perfect for CQB.




Specs:
  • High-density polymer construction 
  • 6.03mm Tightbore inner barrel 
  • 14mm CCW Male threaded outer barrel 
  • System 7 adjustable HOP-up unit 
  • 20mm Picatinny railed receiver 
  • 20mm Picatinny rail at the 6 o'clock position 
  • Removable/repositionable 20mm side rails 
  • QD Sling socket at the rear - QD Sling swivel pre-installed 
  • VORSK's unique stipple texture on the pistol grip 
  • Compatible with VORSK VMP-1 Magazines and ASG/KWA/KSC MP9/TP9 magazines




Rangetest:

As you can see from the video, we just decided to press full f*cking send and record this SMG in full-auto mode which was really fun. Of course, you wouldn't be able to use full-auto in CQB but this would be fun for a woodland game. On semi-auto, it performed well, fed well and was pretty accurate once we adjusted the hop. The only thing I will say is the magazine struggled a little because of how cold it was (we recorded this during the cold snap in January).



In the box, you get the VORSK VMP-1C GBB SMG, a 45rnd Green Gas Magazine, the Quick Start guide, a Spare Nozzle, PVC Patch and the HOP-up adjustment tool. From HC2, the VMP-1C retails for £169.99.

Chrono and Range Test: Although I'm not a huge fan of the colour way (gold and white isn't really my thing, gold and black tho 👀), this pistol performs well for the price point.
