  1. The Best Airsoft Sites in Scotland

    Scotland is a unique and challenging place to skirmish, with the weather being naturally colder than southern UK, and rain being a more common occurrence. However, this should not stop you from getting out and experiencing the fantastic airsoft sites that the country has to offer. The outdoor sites make use of Scotland’s amazing countryside with expansive arenas set up, which run throughout the year. There is also a small selection of indoor venues, for when the weather really is too unbearable, allowing you to switch up your game and still enjoy a day out. Here, we’ll be looking to pick out some of the best venues in Scotland for both outdoor and indoor airsoft. Continue reading →
  2. What Do Joules Mean in Airsoft?

    Airsoft Guns with gear behind Arguably, one of the most important terms used within airsoft, certainly when it comes to gun safety and operation, is joules. All players should have at least a basic knowledge and understanding of this particular property of a gun, while knowing how they differ and how they correlate. Joules not only has strong implications of how your gun performs when in combat, but also decides whether or not it is safe for use on the field, something that all sites take very seriously and even if your Airsoft gun is legal to own!

  3. 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. Continue reading →
  4. 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.

  5. First Thoughts on Rare Arms AR-15 Shell Ejecting GBBER

    Rare Arms GBBER AR-15 Here at Surplus, one of the things we love about the airsoft community is the continuous barrage of new products being released from manufacturers across the world.

  6. Best North England Sites for Indoor Airsoft UK

    man with airsoft gun indoors During the colder months, many of us pack up our outside gear and head indoors to one of the many indoor airsoft sites around the UK. Although we are fortunate enough to have some crisp and clear days in winter, they are often few and far between, so indoor sites can offer a great alternative, whatever the weather. No matter where you are in the UK, you’ll likely not be far from your closest indoor airsoft location, with many venues available up and down the country. Most will be located closeby to larger cities, but not always. Check online and with local airsoft forums as some of our favourite sites were shared with us by word of mouth; the old fashioned way!

  7. 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!

  8. An Insight into Biodegradable Airsoft BBs

    Person wearing military clothes in wooded area As a sport that relies heavily on remaining in players’ and non-players’ good books, the airsoft community is one that is constantly looking to keep up with modern times. Unlike hugely popular sports such as football or rugby, airsoft is very much its own boss (other than legal legislation, of course), meaning that we can all play a part in bending and shaping the sport to best suit the players. Due to the nature of the sport, rules are adjustable to suit certain scenarios and can differ from site to site. As part of ‘being our own bosses’, it’s important that we take external factors seriously, such as legal and environmental considerations. Continue reading →
  9. Advantages and Disadvantages of Filming Airsoft Gameplay

    Airsoft Gun with scope camera attached It feels like the airsoft community has never been bigger, with more and more people picking up their gear and heading out to shoot up their buddies with plastic BBs. There are numerous reasons the community continues to grow, with people getting their friends involved, exhibitions and event days growing in size and scale, and technology helping to make airsoft accessible for various ages and abilities. However, perhaps one of the greatest drivers of growth is YouTube. Continue reading →

However, it’s important to remember that skirmishing during the summer isn’t always a sunny day experience, as it too brings its own series of challenges.
