Sadly, I cannot take credit for the clever title of this post.  One of our Facebook fans dropped that little golden nugget on me in a comment regarding the Elite Force 4CRS AEG a few days ago.  Brilliant, so I had to reuse it.

 This, if you couldn't tell, is going to be an overview of the aforementioned Airsoft gun.  It is, of course, available for acquisition via Pyramyd Air, along with a number of fine Airsoft Accessories to go with it.

To read more about the Elite Force 4CRS AEG and/or drool over mesmerizing photos of its external beauty, I highly suggest you click the following link to view the full blog post.

Actually, I have no scientific data to prove rap artists prefer the Echo1 Platinum M4, but according to all the rap & hip hop songs I listen to, it sure seems likely, given the number of times I've heard someone mention platinum chains, platinum grills, a platinum chalice, platinum records, etc in a rap song.  As it turns out, I happen to prefer the Echo1 Platinum M4 AEG over most other AEGs as well.  Today's entry on the 3X award-winning Pyramyd Airsoft Blog details a bit of why I prefer it.

The world-famous MilSim Junkie was off chasing waterfalls or something, so the I decided to step in and grab some airsoft war footage while I was hanging out at CQB City up in Stockton, California a couple weeks ago.  However, all respect must be given to the MSJ, because putting together a quality airsoft war video is not as easy as he makes it seem.  There is really no substitute for his gameplay capturing wizardry.  

Due to a series of unfortunate injuries, including a recurring shoulder dislocation problem stemming from an outing last summer while the MilSim Junkie was visiting me in Southern California, I have been limited to working behind the camera while my buddies, Dave, Todd & Luke got to tear it up on the field. Dave was using his Elite Force HK416 CQB AEG with a giant Surefire tac light while my brother, Todd, ran around The City with my Elite Force HK417, which has been downgraded for CQB use. Luke, on the other hand, went with his self-built, fully customized Magpul stubby CQB destoyer with a Speed Trigger and a Gen 2 ASCU MOSFET trigger unit.

If you're in the market for a top-of-the-line Airsoft AEG, you really need to look no further than the Elite Force HK416 or HK417.  If you've already got either of those, but are in need of extra mags, I have your solution:
Extra mags for the Elite Force HK416 AEG
Extra mags for the Elite Force HK417 AEG - 100-rd Mid-Cap
Extra mags for the Elite Force HK417 AEG - 500-rd High-Cap

Here is the video, I do sincerely hope that it brings you joy and harmonious Airsoft love.

Yes, I know this guy is Coast Guard, not SWAT or an assassin.
I just wanted to illustrate the type of kit I was going for here, and
in hindsight, this was not the best image to use, but it was one of
very few choices in my Google search results that allowed
commercial use.

I noticed a few new additions to Pyramyd Air's website and as I thought more about it, I decided that I wanted to write about creating an assassin/black ops/clandestine mission/spy loadout.  Not Black Ops, as it refers to the video game, but the black ops from which the video game's name was inspired.  The kind where the lone assailant, possibly CIA, possibly Treadstone, possibly IMF, possibly MI6, possibly something cool that I don't even know about, wears the all black kit, and goes out into the dead of night to send a few unholy souls back to their maker all quiet-like.    I suppose, minus the assassination missions, this could also be perceived as a loadout inspired by special law enforcement taskforce units like SWAT or that special Coast Guard unit guy to the left, who typically wear all-black or dark blue kits.

Why am I talking about this today?  I will be perfectly honest with you.  I love the high-speed operator loadouts, with tons of AOR1/AOR2/Multicam/OD/FDE gear, but there are some things you can do with black kit that can be pretty awesome, too.  I'm an equal opportunity loadout lover.

This is really more of a kit that you'd wear for CQB, especially if you're not part of a larger team with a set uniform standard already in place, unless that uniform has been established as an all-black kit.  This kit would obviously not be super appropriate, nor even allowed in some cases, at an outdoor, MilSim event at a MOUT facility or elsewhere, for example.  This is also not an attempt to do an accurate impression of any sort of agency operator, more of a kit inspired by all the spy/assassin movies I've seen over the course of my 29+ years on this planet. I'm going to play the part of assassin expert despite having zero qualifications for doing so because there is no way that you can stop me.

Echo1 XCR-L AEG Video Rundown

Here is a little video I put together featuring the new Echo1 XCR-L Polymer AEG. This is a very nice option for anyone who has always loved the original (and amazing) Echo1 XCR AEG (VFC OEM), but did not love the high-end pricing. The Echo1 XCR-L comes in at under $200 and comes with a multitude of features and accessories.

Naturally, if one wanted to purchase said rifle, one could do so by visiting Pyramyd Air and providing payment & shipping details through our website.
