The latest issue of Airsoft International is available, check out the details below:
Hello and welcome to your latest issue of Ai. Last month we took you back to the fetid jungles of Vietnam with a special issue covering the war, its weapons and its troops. This month, we are taking you "back to the future". No, we're not going to be getting all Marty McFly and shooting each other "Western Style" from horseback, although that gives me an idea. Instead, partly inspired by our visit to Edgar Brothers Airsoft to see the people behind Magpul PTS (see pg 8), and partly by a jaw dropping short video you can see here: http://youtu.be/xcT1mw0i4fE
We've decided to come bang up-to-date and covera "Dynamic Shooter" load-out. The feature starts on page 24, so flick through and take a look at our low-down on light weight, high impact airsofting, with a liberal dose of fancy gear and some Chris Costa-esque facial hair. THREAT! The high speed, low drag theme continues with this month's "Ninja" feature, where our man Frenchie gets ruthless with kit and questions everything in an effort to cut down weight and move faster, we're not talking Mars bars and a can of coke at lunch either, this is all about the kit you use or rather the kit you don't. It's not all about firing from contorted positions and rapid mag changes though, as elsewhere in the issue, head dismantler Jack Baxter gets his hands on the new Ares M3 Greasegun. As with most things Jack gets to spend more than 30 seconds with, he's gone at it with the tool kit and stripped it down for all to see. As well as being a great replica of an iconic WW2 weapon that is still used today, the Ares M3 hides a few quirks of design, are they a stroke of genius or just impracticalities?
Check out TakeDown on,pg 16 to find out. Well, that's that then, just a few of the highlights of this latest issue of Ai, we're sure you'll find plenty more, but it's a start.
Have fun out there guys, see you on the field!
