    anyone try them yet? I have several spring piston pistols and an aeg Thompson m1a1. I like them, but have found no one who wants to do combat with eye protection and uniforms around here. I have a Browning Hi-power, a Luger, a PPK, a 1911a1. a beretta 92sf and an mp40 too oh and a car 15 almost forgot those two. up in Chicago they do ww2 softair battles 98ks vs m1 carbines

    soft air

    Hey Dave and Kellhound too bad we dont live within range we could have a battle. It is unbelievable how behind the times Arkies are. It seems like trends take a decade longer to reach back into these mountains. I am in the Ouachita mts Wash ee ta. they are wooded hills with a propensity for clay and crystal. and the terain would be great to reenact the Ardenne, or battle of the bulge

    air soft would be great for my Nephew Ian he just turned 14 and loves guns. unfortunately his mother got him taken away and he has been adopted and we may never see him again -we were very close up until the dfs got into it. In Australia they recently classified air soft guns as firearms and said you may turn them in to the police without penalty. I emailed them asking them"" what drugs are you guys on?""

    ww2 softair battles

    in some places they are using ww2 uniform look alikes (Swedish for German ) and green fatigues for hbt(Ami)and voila you can replicate ww2 battles and eliminate the guess work about taking hits that the ww2 reenactors go thru also obviously there will be YOUTHS

    Thanks for editing.

    There is also a G36 available from another manufacturer that has a nicer magazine, you can see the bullets (fake ofcourse) trough the magazine, like in the real version.

    Classic Army also has the "false bullets" magazine, but in the box with the rifle comes the "hi-cap" without them. Classic Army has a bit of a bad reputation around some airsofters in Spain because bad quality control, but i own an M15A2 (Armalite licensed markings) and the G36 and i have no complain. They are good right out the box and don't need any "custom job" to make them fun to play with.

    I have the Classic Army G36C, but i turned it into the LMG version. Trouble is the "hi-cap" C-mag is not very good for skirmishing.

    Owning stuff like that over here could easily get you an armed police unit on your doorstep.
    There was one hilarious incident in the town centre a few years back when armed police were called out when a woman spotted her neighbour's kid with a water pistol... :roll:
