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.

The Echo1 USA MTC 2 Airsoft AEG

Echo1 USA MTC 2 Airsoft AEG Review, Echo1 modular tactical carbine, airsoft aeg, airsoft guns, airsoft, Pyramyd Airsoft Blog, Tom Harris Media, Tominator,
The Echo1 USA MTC 2 Airsoft AEG (and the more compact, Echo1 USA MTC 1 Airsoft AEG) showed up on the scene around October/November-ish of 2011 as an answer to a pesky little lawsuit involving HK and pretty much most of the Airsoft industry at the time.  Since the HK G36 was now off-limits for production by anyone else other than Umarex, who holds the license for HK products worldwide, Echo1 opted to take that design, mix it up enough to get passed the trademark/trade dress rules and voila!
The Echo1 USA MTC (Modular Tactical Carbine) Airsoft AEG was born.

As per usual hitherto wherein, the Echo1 MTC 2 comes in a nicely packaged box full of foam and excitement.  There are tools to convert the magwell from accepting M4 magazines to G36 magazines (and vice versa), two high-capacity magazines, 9.6V 1,500mAh nunchuck battery, and a battery charger.  Oh yea, the gun comes in the box, too.  Weird.

Check out the full sit rep on this unique piece after the jump,
where I whisper sweet nothings in your ear about it.

Today's product spotlight is pointed directly at the Echo1 Robinson Armament XCR-L Polymer AEG and I plan to illuminate the heck out of it.  For starters, how's about we play a little game I like to call, "What's in the box?"  Luckily, this box does NOT contain Gwyneth Paltrow's beautiful, yet severed head.  It contains the airsoft gun itself, along with a big ol' 9.6V 1500mAH NiMH nunchuck battery, battery charger, warranty stuff, stubby vert grip, mag winder tool, some other tool, and two (2) high capacity m4 magazines.

If you're one of my two or three regular readers, you'll probably recall my predictions for the Red Jacket Firearms branded Airsoft guns that I thought we might see from Elite Force.  Well, looks like I wasn't too far off the beaten trail at all (Yes, I just tooted my own horn). 

At this year's Shot Show 2013, Elite Force unveiled their upcoming line of licensed Red Jacket Firearms Airsoft guns, starting with the Red Jacket 1911.

Check out the other Red Jacket Firearms models to be released later this year from Elite Force after the jump.

If so, I've got phenomenal news.  Pyramyd Air has some in stock.  You can get them here:

Papa Bear & Andy Green sent me one of their Elite Force 1911 A1 Tac CO2 GBB Pistols the other day because I whined & complained that Airsoftology, CrazyNCman & the MilSim Junkie all got one to review and I felt that there was some sort of conspiracy against me.  I also sold one of my very expensive saxophones and used the money to buy a sweet new Canon lens for my DSLR camera.  Since they both arrived in the same week, I figured it was the perfect excuse to snap a few photos using both items.

Ok, so today I thought I would share some more Elite Force HK417 photos with you and also provide you with a few facts about the real steel version which I think/hope (mostly hope) you may find interesting.

You can purchase this rifle at Pyramyd Air.  Here is a link: Elite Force HK417 by VFC

No, seriously.  I'm going to tell you how I cleaned my KWA HK45 Gas Blowback Pistol today.   
 I can't say that this is the most exciting topic you could be reading about, but here are the cold, hard, ugly, boring facts, my friend: A dirty gun is a dirty no-good-so-and-so.  Sorry, for the offensive language, but a dirty gun is a bad story.  All that fancy Crye, LBT, and/or otherwise AOR1 gear won't mean a whole lot during the game if your gun is too dirty to function.  It will mean a lot in the parking lot and/or staging area of your favorite field though.  

Don't tell Allen over at KWA, but I dropped my KWA HK45 in the worst kind of dirt you can drop an amazing gas blowback gun in.  That fine, almost-silky kind that gets everywhere, in every crevice.  If Allen was reading this right now, he would simply be shaking his head in quiet disgust, his face: expressionless.  So I figured it would be best to clean this beauty up as best as possible. 

If you're curious to know how I went about cleaning my favorite Airsoft pistol, then check it out after the jump.  If you're not interested or even remotely curious, then I apologize, but just know that you have hurt my feelings.

Today's blog has been prepared, once again, by my good friend over at the Airsoft Report, Dave Bakholdin.  Dave, being a father of two young cherubs himself, knows all too well what it's like to have a wild toddler and a newborn to deal with all at once in the house, so he didn't hesitate to help me out on this one.  Dave is the kind of friend that makes you feel very lucky to have a friend like Dave (that made sense, right?).  If you missed Dave's last write-up featuring the Elite Force HK416 CQB Rifle, you can click the following link:

But on with the Elite Force HK417D show (after the jump, of course)...

My 2nd son was born today, and I didn't have a chance to prepare anything in advance for the blog today, but luckily I have a number of selfless friends and one of them, Dave Bakholdin (Airsoft Report, LLC), graciously agreed to take some time out of his busy schedule today to come up with something for you wonderful readers to feast upon.

Here what Dave had to say about things today after the jump...

Ah, yes. Today we pay a visit to the Elite Force M4 CQC AEG Rifle. This model is not yet available for sale to the public yet, but Cliff Eisenbarger & Andy Green over at Elite Force were kind enough to give in to my whining and complaining about getting some pre-production samples sent to my grid.

This photo was "borrowed."  It was probably taken by Andy Green Photography.  If not, then it was taken by someone else close to the American MilSim crew.  I did not ask permission to use it, but am willing to suffer the consequences because it is an awesome photo.  Whenever possible, make sure you have your team get their pic taken as they're walking away from an explosion (without looking back at it or flinching). 
Alright.  So I've got a bit of a special blog (perhaps even a small series) regarding how to start an Airsoft team.  And not just any Airsoft team, but one that is awesome.  

What makes me the authority on starting Airsoft teams?  Oh, I don't know really.  Why not worry about that after you have read what I have to say and then decide whether I know what I'm talking about or not.

How to Easily Win 50 Bucks from Pyramyd Air

Some of my readers with an insatiable appetite for my Pyramyd Airsoft Blog ramblings will quite possibly have noticed that for the past several months, I have included the following image at the conclusion of each post:  
Pyramyd Airsoft Facebook Page, Big Shot of the Week, Win $50, Win Fifty Bucks, Pyramyd Airsoft Blog, Pyramyd Airsoft Youtube Channel, Tom Harris Media, Tominator, Airsoft Guns,
Some of you might be a bit skeptical to even bother to click on the image and get the details on just how exactly you can win 50 bucks from Pyramyd Air.   I can't blame you.  Seems like a lot of the contests these days require too much effort.  Well, in my opinion, this one isn't too bad.   

All you have to do is upload a cool photo of yourself with an Airsoft gun to the Pyramyd Airsoft Facebook page wall.

The biggest obstacle to overcome is simply submitting a photo that complies with our rules.  You might not like them, but rules is rules for a good reason (usually).  So I thought I might map out just exactly what those rules were and provide, wherever possible, an illustration of either what to do, or not to do in each case.

Check out our short list of rules after the jump...

There comes a point in an Airsofter's life where selecting just any Airsoft gun will no longer do. Growing from playing in backyard skirmishes to real steel training or attending 2-Day MilSim Ops at exclusive Areas of Operation (AOs) requires an evolution in weapon selection.  In this case, the more realistic, the better.  Luckily, Airsoft has grown by leaps & bounds in a very short amount of time and there are a number of very high quality options out there, suitable for reliable performance in a MilSim or training environment.

So a week or two ago, I decided to pick a fight with a giant.  Just to see what would happen.  Well, I may have gotten a bit more than I bargained for.  HA!  I got trolled pretty hard on the Pyramyd Airsoft YouTube Channel by a bunch of CrazyNCman's loyal fans.  Frank & I were both pretty surprised at just how stupid some of these people could be to not realize this whole thing was a joke.  So anyway, I made this little video as a response to all that mess.  I appreciate those of you that have supported me thus far.  You're the reason I'm still here.  Hopefully, you enjoy this video.  Here are some links to some of the things shown in the video:

In case you haven't heard, or you chose to ignore my title, Ares is going to make a sweet new sniper rifle.  But before we get to that, let us gaze upon the glory that is the new SOCOM Gear Hitman M9. 
Pardon my horrific failure to focus the subject.  I would love to blame Simon from MadBull who was holding the gun at the time, but if I was a good enough photog, that wouldn't have mattered.  Oh well.  
The slide reads, "no women, no kids."
The lower frame reads, "MADE IN HELL BY SOCOMGEAR.  READ MANUAL BEFORE USE."
 Simon had a few other things to show me.  Licensed Spikes Tactical goodies among them, along with Lancer & Troy magazines, which were pretty unique and pretty cool. 

 Here is where I draw the line.  You wanna see that beautiful new Ares MSR?
You gotta click that link, dawg.  It awaits you after the jump.

I realize that the image above has almost nothing to do with the magazines themselves, as they are barely visible in the shot, but I thought it was a lot more attention grabbing than just a shot of a bunch of Airsoft magazines. So that's what I went with. But to satisfy both parties, here's one of just the Elite Force Universal Mid Cap Mags all by themselves.

When it comes to using Airsoft as a training tool for real steel weapons manipulation and operation, there are a number of advantages.  However, there are also a few limitations that prevent Airsoft guns from being the perfect training tool.  One of those limitation is the fragility and sensitivity of gas magazines.  They are fragile when it comes to dropping them on the ground from a standing height when you eject them from the gun to load a new mag.  They are sensitive to the dirt they fall in after they've landed on the ground.  Reuse a dirty gas mag in your gun at your own peril.  Needless to say, letting your gas mags hit the ground to reload is less than optimal.  

There are several solutions to this for Airsoft purposes.  One could argue that performing a "tactical reload" would be the way to go.  As I was taught by a retired Special Forces operator, this is where you grab a fresh mag from your vest with your off-hand first and then, with that same hand, grab the mag in the gun as you hit the mag release button.  Insert the fresh mag while you have both mags in hand and then once inserted completely, place your spent mag in your dump pouch.  

That's cool.  Especially since it is more of the textbook way of doing it.  Now, I'm definitely NOT saying I know better than a real deal, Special Forces operator, however, let me throw an idea at you from a different angle.  Enter the small dump pouch from 5.11 Tactical.  As you can see in the picture below, I've added it to the front of my battle belt, on my right side so that I can easily drop the empty mag inside of it without needing to use my "off hand."
While I'm dropping the magazine in the dump pouch with my right hand, I'm reaching for a new mag on my vest with my left hand (If you're an openly left-handed shooter, then you'll want to swap this around).  *I know that my pistol mag pouches are empty.  I only had one mag handy for this demonstration.  So just imagine one is there*
 I'm sure there are those out there that would gasp in horror at the thought of having TWO dump pouches on their kit *Oh, the sacrilege!  But I've found it to be very handy, a more natural sequence of movements for me, and a bit faster than performing a tactical reload.  Sure, if I practiced for awhile, I'm sure I could get pretty quick with my tactical reloads.  But I don't want to practice that method when I've already got a good system going.  If it ain't broke, don't fix it.  If it doesn't fit, you must acquit, too.  I suppose you could just use one large dump pouch for your rifle and pistol mags, but I like to keep mine separate.  Separate but equal.     
I've found that if you've got a bunch of rifle mags already in the big pouch, and then you start dumping pistol mags in there (this has happened during long firefights with a long of bad guys to shoot), the pouch starts to get overfilled and a bit too heavy for my tastes.  Having that second, mini pouch on there takes up minimal real estate on the belt (only one MOLLE webbing slot) and helps to mitigate some of those issues I just mentioned.
So that's what I've got for you.  You don't have to use this method.  If you have another method that you like better, feel free to share it here in the comments.
