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:

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...

Well, here it is, gas gun fans.  A battle for the ages.  I have thrown the KWA LM4 PTR, King Arms Colt M4A1 & the G&P WOC M4 Kit into the ring together to see which one(s) will make it out alive.

 Here on the Pyramyd Airsoft Blog, I will cover the good, the bad and the hideously ugly of these three rifles.  I will freely admit that these are not the only gas blowback M4 rifles out on the market, but are the only ones I had access to.  In an ideal world, I would have liked to include the KJW/Tanio Koba M4 GBBR, the Inokatsu M4 GBBR & maybe the Bomber M4 GBBR as well. Maybe someday.  But for now, these three rifles will have to do.

 So let's cut the crap, shall we?  

MadBull Airsoft was kind enough to send me some pre-production samples of their new PBS mock suppressors or barrel extensions, and my my, aren't they breathtaking!   Even for pre-production samples, these things may as well be the final production versions.  The CNC machine work on them is outstanding.  In case you weren't aware, the PBS suppressors were originally designed for use with AK47 or variants thereof (Commie gunz!), but with the Airsoft versions having 14mm negative (Counter-Clockwise) threading, you can put them on whatever compatible guns you want!  But be wise with your choice.  Not all guns were created equal. 
The model on the left is the MadBull PBS-04 AK Mock Suppressor and the model on the right is the MadBull PBS-01 AK Mock Suppressor.  They each feature a combination of smooth and textured finishes and are machined from high quality T-6061 aluminum. 

They are hollow inside and feature MadBull's patented internal design which allows them to meet BATFE's approval.  The samples I was sent were very solid, possessing a pretty good amount of weight, each weighing a bit over 1lb, but the fine folks at MadBull have informed me that the final versions will be much lighter.  As you'll see below, I've already tested them out on my Beta Project Magpul AK and didn't find the weight to be an issue for me (and believe me, I'm far from being hulked out or otherwise in shape).
