Assessment: Accessorized Guns

In Assessment, we looked at 4 AEGS with some cool accessories added on to them. The first one was the Jing Gong 416 from Airsplat.

This version comes with crane stock instead of a PEQ box.

I added this NC Star holo sight (also from Airsplat) - it's easy to put on and take off of the upper rail.

I also added this JRICH vert grip and flashlight (from Airsplat) to the gun. A great deal for only $80.

Lastly, I added this Element Shark muzzle break. Be careful - it's really sharp.

The next AEG was the CYMA M14 sent to me from Texas911Gear. The gun is distributed by the Palco company, and it comes with some pretty nice box art.

Here it is with a scope on the front rail, as well as the OD sling that was included.

Here you can see the M14 full-metal scope mount and the Tacedge red/green dot scope.

Here it is with the mount, the scope, and the Mamba sling from AEX (check out the last podcast for info on that sling).

Next up was the King Arms SIG 556 HOLO in Dark Earth. Thanks to Airsoft Extreme for sending this along for review.

And here it is geeked out with accessories from Airsoft Extreme.

A little hard to see, but here are the real SIG trades.

This 556 comes with a blow-back feature that is one of the nicer ones I've seen. You can also disable the blowback with a pretty easy mod (that is included).

The first accessory was the AMP railed red-dot scope from Airsoft Extreme.

Next was the Classic Army mock silencer, also from AEX.

Lastly, the QD vert grip made by Classic Army (sent to me from Airsoft Extreme).

Our final AEG was the UTG M4 Commado sent to me from PyramydAir.

It has PLENTY of accessories included with it.

The UTG M4 Commando (full-metal).
Here you can see the UTG tactical 3-point sling

This AEG has room for a large 8.4 up front and comes with this vert grip and with these rail covers.

Here's the Leapers red-dot sight. Cheap but works great.

Tricks of the Trade, Part 1: Carl from Airsoft Innovations

Check out our interview with the inventor of the Tornado grenade.

Tricks of the Trade, Part 2: Ronald (SlickAxe) from NL Airsoft

Loadout: Batteries

We talked all about batteries. Here are a few lithium batteries I use in the JRICH vert grip/flash light. Thanks to Airsoft Station for sending all these different batteries along.

Here's your basic 8.4 v. mini battery.

And an 8-cell, 9.6 volt stick battery.

Here's a battery that would go into your PEQ box.

Retailer Review: Kenneth Wu, CEO and founder of Airsplat
