KS E90 1500Rd Box Magazine
This is a review of the KS E90 box magazine. This magazine gives the P90 the ability to have a 1500rd capacity as well as relocate the battery if the user desires. This box magazine uses a high capacity M-4 magazine to feed the bb?s from the hopper on top of the box magazine. A very positive feature of this magazine is the fact that you can use the previous space for the magazine as a storage space for a large type battery giving the user much more playing time. The new battery will require an adapter and some slight rewiring. The downside of this magazine is that since it uses a high cap M-4 magazine that it can?t be used in an event that only allows low to mid cap magazines.

Pros:
Allows for bigger battery storage
Allows for more ammunition
Uses M-4 magazine

Cons:
Only uses high capacity M-4 magazines
Have to rewire gun for bigger battery storage
Makes the gun slightly heavier and bigger.

UTG Deluxe Shotgun Tri-Rail Barrel Mount
The UTG Deluxe Shotgun Tri-Rail barrel mount is an easy way to add accessories such as a flashlight or laser to the front of you shotgun. This is an all metal mount and has screws that secure the mount to the shotgun and a flashlight into the mount and allows for attachment to different sizes of shotguns and flashlights. There are 3 small rails on the left side right side and underneath the mount for attaching ris accessories. This mount works well the only drawback to it is that it adds extra weight to the front of the shotgun.

Pros:
Easily attaches
Allows for attachment for different sizes of weapons and lights
Rails for accessory attachment

Cons:
Adds weight to the front of the weapon
Uses allen screws to secure requiring carrying an allen wrench.

Weapon Accessory Review: Scope- Tasco 2-6x32 AOE red/green mil dot
Purchase: northgoody (Ebay seller)

I have found that this scope offers plenty of adjustment for airsoft weapons. I was able to fully adjust my hop-up to get a nice flat trajectory and then adjust the scope to hit my target from 100-225 Ft. in addition to matching the scope adjustments to utilize an attached laser.

Pros:
Durable
Illuminations- 5 Red/ 5 Green
Clear Optics
RIS mounts (included in purchase)
Adjustment is easy (Illumination, Range and Sighting)
Lens caps included (Amber/Yellow rear lens makes white BB?s very east to see)


Cons:

Note: DANGEROUS (avoid direct eye exposure to beam)

I have found that this laser is basically useless in temperatures less than 70 degrees. While it is extremely visible at night for long distances, and even during direct sunlight, I have found this to be a waste of 80.00

Pros:
Extremely Visible
RIS mount

Cons:
Expensive
Does not work in colder temps
Pad activation is very sensitive (I removed it)
Extreme battery usage
Adjustment (VERY HARD)

Weapon Accessory Review: 5mW Green Laser
Purchase: Private Individual

Note: DANGEROUS (avoid direct eye exposure to beam)
Note: All tests conducted with this item where in an Airsoft environment
Result: Fail

This laser is a windage and elevation adjustable green laser that is visible for a long distance at night as well as in the day time. The laser came with a pressure switch that was very sensitive and I ended up removing it and replacing it with a push button from a UTG flashlight for better activation. Adjustment on the laser is very difficult and should not be done in the field. In temperatures less than about 60 degrees the laser has issues with working and the beam becomes very dull. This is an item that is suited for cqb or low light scenarios rather than field play. Extended use of the laser will drain the battery and cause you to replace it quickly.

Pros:
Extremely Visible
RIS mount
Full Metal

Cons:
Poor performance in low temps
Pad activation is very sensitive (replaced with push button)
Extreme battery usage
Adjustment (VERY HARD)

This magazine is constructed of metal and fits well in the JG m4 series of weapons. It is a non winding mid cap magazine capable of holding approximately 100 rounds and has no feeding problems. These are the mags to take with you to any low/midcap game for worry free performance.

Weapon Accessory Review: BSA LS650 Red laser Sight
Purchase: Midwayusa.com

This laser was bought for use on a cqb weapon. The laser comes with the laser, pressure pad(removable) and the mount, batteries, and allen wrenches (for adjustment). The laser has windage and elevation adjustment. You can remove the pressure pad and use the click switch for on and off but it is very sensitive and can turn on at unwanted moments. If you are not using the pressure pad it would be advisable to put some kind of tape over the battery door for fear of it falling off. The laser uses 2 1.5v LR44 batteries for power. Overall not a bad laser, but there are more effective lasers with less problems on the market.

Pros:
Windage and elevation adjustments
Removable pressure switch
Batteries included
RIS mount included

Cons:
Battery door not the most secure without pressure pad attached
Switch on top of laser very sensitive can turn on with light bump
Accidental activation can drain batteries quickly
Requires allen wrenches for windage and elevation adjustment

Weapon Accessory Review: Matrix 1000rd Electric Auto Winding Dual Mag for M4/M16 Series AEG (Sound Control)

Purchase: Evike.com (Team Sponsor)

The information in this review is a compilation of information gathered in both practical use and testing environments. Testing consisted of such things as durability, ease of operation/adjustment, accuracy, practicality and weapon fitments in a variety of weather related conditions.

Note: All tests conducted with this item where in an Airsoft environment
Result: Pass

The Matrix 1000rd Electric Auto Winding Dual Magazine for M4/M16 Series AEG (Sound Control) is a far better item then the previous models. The activation switch is on the front of the clip and has 3 positions off sound control and constant wind. The door on the top of the dummy mag opens and allows the refilling of the mag during combat conditions without removal from the gun. The mag is mad of some metal but mostly plastic which can be a problem if you are hard on magazines. The battery is housed in the dummy side of the mag and is removed for charging. Charge this battery for only about 2 to 2.5 hours and no longer for fear of ruining it. The magazine comes packaged with a charger and battery for a very reasonable price.


Pros:
Sound Control for ease of use
Reloading door on dummy side for easy reload
Battery removable for charging.
Activation switch on front of mag for easy access.
Comes with charger for battery.
Fits all M4 models tried to date. (JG, DPMS)



Cons:
Made of mostly plastic
A little noisy in constant wind mode.

This scope is wonderful for airsoft weapons. The 2-6 x 32 is the perfect amount of zoom to scout down the field or use for accurate shooting at distance. The red and green illumination is perfect for low light or bright light conditions. This scope has plenty of adjustment to suit everyone. This scope includes the rings to mount it to any ris rail.

Pros:
Durable
Illuminations- 5 Red/ 5 Green
Clear Optics
Scope mounts (included in purchase)
Adjustment is easy (Illumination, Range and Sighting, Focus)
Lens caps included (Yellow rear lens makes white BB?s very east to see)

Cons:
Lens caps are not tight fitting on front and rear of scope and can bounce a little.

Gear: Russian AK Drop Case

Purchase: RRC Firearms ~$46

The information in this review is a compilation of information gathered in both practical use and testing environments. Testing consisted of such things as durability, ease of operation/adjustment, and expandability in a variety of weather related conditions.

Note: All tests conducted with this item were in an airsoft environment

Rating: Pass

Review: This is a high quality canvas carrying case for an AK-47. It is designed to use the sling on the weapon as the handle for the case. The weapon is wrapped in a canvas bag with ties. The quality of the replica drop bag is excellent. This is what this weapon was carried in. It brings a level of realism to the weapon I believe.

Pros: This bag is what is really used to store and transport AK's. This brings a level of realism and authenticity to the weapon.

Cons: This is a canvas bag. The price of $46 is kind of high for what this product is.

Pros: A realistic authentic sling for the AK. Works well and does what it was designed to do. Russian markings are cool.

Cons: $35 is a little pricy for this item. One is paying for the authenticity I would guess
