Magpul FPG Conversion Kits Available Now!

Since the original Magpul blog entry done during the first week of Shot Show 2010 many have awaited it's arrival to retailers. That time has not come just yet but official Magpul PTS conversion kits have shown up on one popular retails site. Ehobbyasia is well known for their selection of products and relatively competitive pricing. It is also the first that I have seen to offer the Magpul PTS Folding Pistol Glock (FPG) for KSC/KWA G18C.

CQB City Airsoft March 28, 2010 Shotgun Madness

What a beautiful day for airsoft. With spring just around the corner and the pollen in the air made people come out to enjoy a day of shooting. Solid work by both teams as camo remains to struggle to win a full game day. Fierce force on force action was everywhere and I was spared no mercy as BB's flew around me. Thunder B grenades made a uprise today as many players sought to use their C02 fueled frags. I commend those that use them as Thunder B grenades are becoming harder and harder to locate (in-stock).

CQB City is an indoor close quarter facility were fighting is close and the action hurts. It is a field, although we often suggest ways to prevent it, that has gotten teeth knocked out and more than its share of bloodied welts. March 28th's op was no different and I was very surprised by the integrity of some of the younger players.

Review: Magnum Stealth Force 8.0 (Desert Tan)

Many people have asked me about what type of boots I use on the field. While there is more than a few different options out there I picked a pair of Magnum Stealth 8.0 boots in desert tan. At the time I was looking for a boot that was sub $100 that I could skirmish with a camo'd and civilian loadout.  Despite the boots 2 lbs weight actual feel is substantially light on an operators feet.

CQB City Airsoft March 20, 2010

It seems I always get shot the most when I am behind the camera even more so when I have a light attached to it. Night operations are extremely difficult for to film given the indoor conditions. In certain area of the city players are in complete darkness unknowing of enemy positions. Despite wearing a security orange vest the camera and I get lit up more than a few times.

Im working hard at trying to deliver the best of close quarter combat even if it means I gotta get shot a few times.

Face Protection: An alternative way to save your teeth

In my YouTube comment's many viewers have asked about face protection. Several videos feature Chief, Bobby, other operators and myself wearing a unique face mask. Is it a gas mask? Is it some expensive airsoft mask? Did you make it? Answer is no, its not what you think.

Its a painting respirator with the canisters removed. Painting respirators are used by painters to filter out the harmful dust, fumes, and vapors from paints.

CQB City Airsoft March 14, 2010

CQB City has gotten more facelifts within the last few months than Joan River's. The newest additions to the field include a Favela like appearance to the West side of city. Buildings and structures are built with destructed urban feel. During regular gameplay it is now much more difficult to find out where shots ring out. Total 360 awareness is needed by all members of each team without it operator's will be heading to re-spawn. This is not the end of it as week's progress more of the same type of buildings/structures will be added to add to the cities chaos.

Magpul Ambidextrous Sling Attachment Point (ASAP) on WE GBB

"The ASAP Ambidextrous Sling Attachment Point allows a range of motion greater than 180 degrees, enabling true ambidextrous weapon manipulation for both left and right handed shooters." -Magpul

Part of Magpul's theory based products the ASAP is design to give the weapon operator more mobility to engage contacts but also to get the weapon in and out of the way should other emergencies arise. With its signature Magpul logo the ASAP is built tough. I know in the video I mention that I believed there was welding on the swivel bar which I found is false as I have discovered the whole piece is made from cast steel. The only piece of welding is on the link ring. There is a considerable amount of weight (although no more than a couple ounces) to this version than its PTS counterpart. I tried putting this on my AEG and while it fit it would not allow both the collapsable stock and ASAP to function properly.

I finally mounted it onto the WE M4 GBB and now I can see why this has to be as sturdy as it is. With the full weight of the weapon with mag there is a considerable amount of stress on the ASAP. It performed flawlessly I could transition to my sidearm more efficiently than before.

Ordered from
Price: $27


  • Solid cast steel plate
  • Durable welding link ring
  • Mil-spec black manganese phosphate finish
  • Works with both mil-spec and commercial-spec carbine receiver extensions

CQB City Airsoft March 6, 2010 [WE KAC PDW on Video]

Even more additional changes to the field were unveiled today to a nice number of operators for Saturday's festivities. A lot of small skirmishes going on all over the field from ; Bobby's Pistol Palace, from within the Kill House, the Bank, and shooting from the 2nd floor tower. The sounds of BB's rained down upon everyone who played today.

I will admit we had some issues today mainly delt with communication amongst ourselves and operators but most of it was put aside and refocused back onto the field. Saturday's group had some awesome close quarter footage that I hope I captured. Some shooters were first timers, and some were veterans overall not a bad day for airsoft.

CQB City Airsoft February 28, 2010

What a day! At first I believed that the day would equal a smaller turnout than we have been having than usual but that all changed as the morning progressed. The city is seeing newer faces more frequently and I had the extreme privilege of meeting some of you; my readers and viewers. I appreciate all the support you have shown and will continue to deliver the very best when it comes to CQB City and my overall musings around airsoft.

If you have ever played along side of the Milsim Junkie you would have already noticed im sporting camo. For the longest time I have opted out of wearing cammies. I decided to bite the bullet and start making my loadouts a lot less PMC (Private Military Company; Mercenary) ish. Yes, I finally got a set of MC and was ready to rock.
