Assessment, Part 1: M4s.

We started off looking at the Echo 1 Stag Arms M4 Commando sent to us from Pyramyd Air. Here's the lovely box in which your AEG will arrive.

Inside the box, you will find all these goodies.

The Echo 1 Stag Arms M4 Commando - a nice, basic M4

Compare the size of the commando version and the standard M4 (commando version on the bottom in the photo).

Our second M4 was the DBOYS M4 with CASV. Here's a look at it in its most basic form.

Check out what Ox did to his to turn it into a DMR.

Then we looked at the KWA M4 - a really nice AEG sent to us by Airsoft Extreme.

Tricks of the Trade, Part 1: What to pack for an airsoft op. If you're interested in getting a copy of this list, feel free to e-mail me at

Tricks of the Trade, Part 2: In this section, we spoke with Booligan of Airsoft Retreat and many other airsoft websites on the net.

Assessment, Part 2: M4s

We got back into M4s by looking at the Jing Gong M4.

Next M4 - the Classic Army M4 Sportline.

Here's a look at the slightly different stock that this AEG has.

I put on a new flash hider and added this flashlight and flashlight holder just to change it up a bit.

Our final M4 was the new Echo 1 Stag Arms full-metal M4. Pyramyd Air supplied this AEG for review.

Retailer Review: In our retailer review, we talked about Shorty USA.

Just In: We talked about some new items that are on the airsoft market, as well as some helpful websites. The first one was Airsoft Forum and there you can find pictures of various airsoft loadouts.

ICS has put out an L86A2 support gun.

EBAirsoft is selling a big, chunky grenade launcher for $149.
