  • Should We Stop Publicising Cheating in Airsoft?

    Man with airsoft gun

    Unfortunately, like many other sports, cheating occurs in airsoft. As much as it pains us to admit, players, both new and experienced, bend, ignore, and break the rules of gameplay for their or their team’s benefit. Thankfully, and we’d like to make this clear, it is a meagre amount of people that commit these crimes, and the sport is certainly not ‘rife’ with cheating. That being said, it is a frequently talked about topic of conversation within the community. Rather than shying away from this topic, we’d like to open up the conversation and present our own opinion.

  • What is an Airsoft Chronograph?

    Xcortech Airsoft Chronograph

    A vital accessory that is often overlooked by many new players, a chronograph (chrono) is an essential part of every players’ arsenal. Often, when starting out, it can be easy to put off buying one of these guys as sites will often have one you can use; or your local store will have one out the back. Either way, it can be easy to neglect the need to pick one up for yourself. However, with more and more new people getting involved with the sport, and the community growing as a whole, it’s important that all players should have immediate access to a chrono, either their own or a buddy’s.

  • Airsoft and Brexit

    UK Leaving the EU

    Strangely enough, we’ve not heard the word ‘airsoft’ mentioned in any of Boris’ Brexit plans, which must mean it has slipped down the priority list. Luckily, it still holds centre stage for us, and we’ll be keeping a firm eye on how the Brexit scenario will be affecting our favourite sport. Unfortunately, almost none of what we’ll be mentioning in this article is confirmed, as it feels that not even the people in charge know what’s happening. However, we wanted to put this together to look at the possibilities that could come with a (more than likely) No-Deal Brexit result and how our beloved airsoft will be affected. If you think we have missed anything, or if there is anything specific that you would like to see an article on, drop a comment below or reply to our social media posts on Facebook and Twitter!

  • How We Can All Contribute to The Airsoft Community

    Two Airsoft Guns balanced against tree

    Airsoft is a unique sport as, despite its rapid growth in recent years, it has still managed to retain a community-centric approach and attitude; with new players being welcomed, which is rarely seen in other larger sports. New players are met with a warm reception by other more experienced players and helped to get ‘up to speed’ with the rules of the sport and any nuances they should be aware of that apply to a particular site or game type.

  • Upcoming Airsoft Guns We’re Looking Forward to in 2019

    Airsoft gun with additional accessories

    Each year, we’re seeing bigger and better airsoft guns being released; which is great for our collections but not so great for the bank balance! This year, we saw some great products put out by some of the big boys, such as Tokyo Marui, but also some great weapons from smaller companies too! This market competition is invaluable for the airsoft community, to make sure that we’re only seeing the best products come to market. That being said, there are still a few ropey weapons making it onto the shelves and inevitably onto the battlefields, which can often lead to disappointment from the user. So we’re doing a bit of a roundup, to help you keep your eyes on the prize (the best upcoming guns) and not spend money where it’s not warranted. As a small disclaimer, any dates mentioned in the article may change, product designs may also change and unfortunately, we won’t get to try any of these before they are released, so this is mostly just our initial opinions. We’d love to hear from you to know what you’re looking forward to and to let us know if there’s something we’ve missed! Now, let’s get into the list:

  • Nine of the Best Airsoft Game Types

    Man with airsoft gun

    Whether you’re looking for a full-scale military simulation or a scaled down close quarters battle with some friends, there will be a game type to suit you. If you’re the person organising the game type, you’ll have a lot more control than if you’re participating in someone else’s event, such as deciding how many times you can be mediced back in, the time limit, respawns etc.

    As competitive airsofters, we like to stay ahead of the curve wherever possible. Whether this is finding out about new weapons, mods, or events first, it’s important for us and our business that we have our fingers on the pulse of the airsoft community. There are so many informative, airsoft-based sites out there that have helped us build our knowledge of the game and provided useful hints and tips for us during gameplay. Here are some of our favourite sources for information:

  • The Science of Hop-Up

    Airsoft Gun

    Truly an integral factor of airsoft, the hop-up has been keeping people and their guns firing for many years. We have seen that people’s experience and relationship with the hop-up can vary therefore we wanted to deconstruct the idea and the mechanics behind how it works so that even if you’re an entirely new player, you can start using hop-up to its full potential. In this article, we’ll be looking at what hop-up is, how to adjust it, how adjustments will affect your weapon, and ultimately how to make the most from it.

  • Bad Airsoft Habits and Practices

    Man holding airsoft rifle

    Here at Surplus Store, airsoft is our passion. We love the sport and everything that comes with it, the modification, the tense battle moments and the camaraderie of playing with teammates. Unfortunately, it’s not always plain sailing and very rarely there can be things that happen on the battlefield or in the arena that can ruin a day of airsoft. Granted, some things that happen are out of everyone’s control, but sometimes players’ bad practises and bad habits can put a real dampener on a day out. So we’ve racked our brains and put together a list of all of the things you should and shouldn’t be doing to help the day run smoothly and be an enjoyable experience for all! Don’t be the person that ruins your’s any everyone else’s day!

  • Best Airsoft Youtubers

    Man with airsoft gun in field

    The world of YouTube has opened up a wealth of opportunity for airsofters, allowing us to share our own battles, successes and occasional fails, and watch other people’s experiences too! The success of YouTube has spawned a plethora of different airsoft content creators, some with higher quality videos than others, and sometimes it’s difficult to pick the wheat from the chaff. So with this article, we’ve highlighted some of the best airsoft YouTubers based on the quality of their video content, regular uploads and how many viewers and subscribers their channel has. We know this can be a pretty hot topic (and this certainly isn’t an exhaustive list), which is why we’ve picked these YouTubers based on the stats as opposed to our own personal opinions.
