To be honest, that title is rather tricky, and not just because I'm using the word "best" when only comparing two objects, rather than three or more. Know what I'm sayin'? Where my grammar trolls at?

Before I get into the RIS vs. RAS comparison, let me first specify the components of the two acronyms.

RIS = Rail Interface System
RAS = Rail Adapter System

There are actually quite a few variations of those two out there but after doing a bit of mild research on several major firearms manufacturer sites (e.g. Daniel Defense, Knight's Arm Co, etc), as well as a few other gun-related informational sites, I've determined that those are probably two of the more correct meanings. However, since there doesn't seem to be a standard definition that covers multiple manufactured rails, I'm not sure if there's a wrong answer either.


So what the heck is the difference between RIS and RAS then?

Part II of II

In case you missed Part I of my G&G Armament Report from Shot Show 2011 this year, you can go here:

So, the 2nd half of my G&G Report from Shot Show 2011 in Las Fabulosas Vegas begins with a shout out to the Airsoft ladies out there. Again, this isn't a new item, per se, but you'll note that in Part I of this report, I admitted to being ill-prepared which resulted in me failing to set an appointment to speak with anyone at the G&G Booth about their new stuff. My fault, not theirs. All their reps were busy when I got there and despite taking my time to walk through the booth and snoop around, nobody became available while I was there and I had to move on. End of story, goodbye, the end, el fin.

Anyway, brought to you ladies (or dudes, if you're man enough to rock a pink M4) by G&G Armament, I give you La Femme Fatale 16, the famous Pink Airsoft M4 Carbine AEG.

I'm guessing at least some of these colors are new because I don't see them listed on the G&G website, but here, you can see several different colored rifles in the G&G GR15 & GR16 series, including the white G&G Chione** 16 White Special Edition AEG for those of you Airsoft Arctic Snow Warriors...

**RE: "Chione" - For those of you with a weak Google Fu or just simply don't care enough to Google the word but are still mildly interested in its meaning, I gotcho back, playa!


According to Wikipedia, my favorite resource for the truth, Chione was either a Snow Goddess, Snow Nymph, or just a Snore (Snow Whore).  One page even stated that the English translation was "Snow White."  Something tells me, after reading this background, Disney may not have done their homework before they made that epic film back in the day starring a dead chick, 7 "little people" with varying personality disorders and some tainted fruit.  Although, now that I think about the whole Disney alliterative XXX subliminal scenes scandal involving several classic Disney children's films, maybe they DID do their homework as another perverted inside joke and were counting on the sheep-like masses to NOT do theirs?  I don't know.  Either way, Chione's stories include being seduced by Apollo, who was disguised as a FEMALE senior citizen and Hermes slipping Chione a sort of mythological Rufie pill then subsequently having his way with her lifeless body.  True story.

Speaking of felonies, don't point your Airsoft guns at Cops. They'll shoot you with real bullets and assuming you are not killed, you will then be charged with a felony or two. Just a randomly generated Airsoft PSA (Public Safety Announcement) from me to you. You're welcome.

Anyway, back to G&G. How about some G&G AK47 rifles? Sure, why not?

It's officially licensed by Sage International, real steel manufacturer of the coveted M14 EBR. "EBR" stands, of course, for Enhanced Battle Rifle.

It's an AEG.

It's beautiful.

It even whispered in my ear that my butt looked good in the 5.11 Tactical Series ripstop TDU pants I was wearing at the time because it knows how to treat a man.

For some reason, the G&G website has this listed as the GR14 H.B.A. rifle, which I can ONLY ASSUME means "Heavenly Bad-Ass Rifle."  

I mean, seriously, what ELSE could it be?!?!

Check out this beast. The G&G M14 EBR even comes with an ambidextrous sling mount.

+1 for convenience factor. +2 for saving us money on having to buy a sling mount separately. Thanks G&G Armament, that was pretty Roosevelt of you.

I pulled the bolt cover back to reveal the holy grail of Airsoft parts, the Hop-up.

I was pleased to find that the new G&G M14 EBR utilizes a hop-up unit pretty much the same as the Classic Army M14 hop-up, which I'm very familiar with as a pretty stable system. I don't know that it's quite as good as the Marui/Echo1 M14 hop-up unit, but I have enough personal experience with all three of those systems to know that it's definitely good enough to be quite dangerous. Haterz gonna hate.

Here's something rather intriguing...I modified the original above to read it more clearly...

Click on the image to open a larger view if you so desire, but on the bolt cover, that text reads: "Capital of Greedy Island." I don't know what that means, but it's kinda funny. Apparently, G&G has been doing that for awhile now. Guess I'm not as "in the loop" as I thought. Oh well. I chuckled. Seems they've got some characters in their midst, which I'm totally cool with. "Characters," or those with entertaining personalities in my book, are fun people to be around, I've found.

Anyway...

He's chosen to accessorize that trigger finger with the new G&G GR14 Heavenly Bad-Ass Rifle (aka the EBR).

Made famous by it's real steel originator, Walther. The same folks with the engineering behind 007's famous sidearms.

They will be releasing the spring-powered version with plastic furniture at first, but wood furniture will be following suit shortly, PLUS there is talk of developing the internal system to run on C02 cartridges as well, so keep an eye out for those happenings.

And I'm spent. G&G. You have some nice guns. I want to be friends with many of them. ESPECIALLY that CRW Cannon. Imagine that Cannon in a CQB/MOUT setting, not unlike John Lu's upcoming OP: Red Storm event, where the CRW Cannon has been outfitted with PolarStar's HPA-powered Fusion Engine, RELIABLY boasting rates of fire in excess of 40 Rounds Per Second with minimal wear & tear. Can you even wrap your mind around that!?!

Part I of II
Airsoft Guns, G&G, Guay & Guay, Airsoft Shot Show 2011 News, Airsoft Automatic Electric Gun, Airsoft AEG, Pyramyd Air, Pyramyd Airsoft Blog, Airsoft Obsessed, Airsoft Blog,So my brother, Todd, & I invited ourselves to the G&G Armament Booth party happening at this year's Shot Show back in January to see what all the fuss was about. This year being my first Shot Show experience and not knowing my rear end from a hot rock, I didn't think about making appointments to meet with the various companies that I wanted to see, so when I got there, they were swamped and didn't really have anyone available to chat with me. With my limited time budget, I simply had to snoop around on my own to see what they had on display.

Suffice to say, they had quite a few guns on display.  Some new.  Some not-so-new.  Either way, I snapped a few shots of things that caught my eye.

I will selfishly admit that there were some items that I did not take photos of because I was not personally interested in them, but I realize now that I wasn't really attending this show for ONLY me.  It is for you readers out there as well, so I apologize for being lame and selfish.  Despite there being a ton of photos from this year's show, expect even more next year so that I can provide as close to a complete report of the Airsoft activity there at Shot Show as I possibly can.

Anyway, enough blabbering.  Let's get some of the nice Airsoft AEGs that G&G Armament had to offer.

As if to say, "Hey! Look at me, I'm important!" G&G Armament had their LR300 series Airsoft AEGs. In the photo, you see the GR300 Shorty and GR300 Long Version AEGs.

Photo: G&G Armament LR300 SR from G&G's Official Website
G&G Armament is also making the LR300 SR (Short Rifle) which has what I would call ZM's signature folding stock on it.  All the G&G Armament LR300 models are officially sub-licensed from a company called, "Evolution," who holds the world-wide licensing rights to the company responsible for producing the real steel LR300s, ZM Weapons. From what I understand, G&G's arrangement with Evolution is very similar to what Cybergun and Umarex are doing where they hold the license to the trademarks, and then they sub-license to other manufacturers like G&G, King Arms & VFC, for example, to use official trademarks on their guns. The LR300s were posted up near what I'm calling the front entrance to their booth. Truth be told, their booth was located in such a way that one could enter from three of the four sides to their large Shot Show real estate, but I'm going to declare the side that I entered from the front for the sake of the flow of content in this particular blog.

In any event, with the folding stock feature alone, the G&G Armament LR300 AEGs are going to make great options for CQB or MOUT facility games where the space you're engaging your targets (and they are engaging you) is going to be limited to one degree or another.  Obviously, the G&G LR300 Shorty is going to be the best option because it not only has the folding stock, but also the shorter barrel, to alleviate some of the difficulty one can run into when trying to manipulate their Airsoft gun in a close quarters environment.

The G&G GR15 DST XL Raider. This is what I'm pretty sure is the same G&G Armament GR15 Raider I mentioned above, only in tan. Just a theory.

Two options for those of you, like me, who love the SR25 series. The G&G Armament GR25 Semi-Automatic Sniper Rifle (top) & the G&G GR25 SPR, or Special Purpose Rifle (bottom).  The GR25 Sniper Rifle is more of a true SR25/M110 SASS replica with the Quick Detach (QD) mock suppressor, whereas the SPR sports pretty much the same body style as the Sniper version, but if you're paying even just a little attention to the image, you can see that the SPR has a different style of flash hider, more commonly seen on the SPRs that I've seen in the past.  Pick your poison.  For those of you who are digging these rifles AND happen to be interested in the new PolarStar Fusion Engine Drop-in Kits I've been discussing here on the Pyramyd Airsoft Blog lately, then you're in luck.  The G&G SR25 series, unlike the Classic Army SR25, G&P & Echo1 versions, uses the standard-length lower receivers, rather than the extended-length lowers found on the three others I just mentioned.  THEREFORE, PolarStar's new Fusion Engines will fit just fine, and have already been tested by the manufacturer.  How do I know this?  Because it's my job to know.  Ok, I admit, I'm not that cool.  I've known this, along with many others, for a little while now.  But just for proof, here's a photo of the G&G GR25 with the PolarStar HPA Fusion Engine...

As this is only part one of two, I'm going to end this portion now.  But I will have more on the G&G M14 EBR that was very nice! Along with some sweet AEG options for the ladies!!! (Per Jay-Z aka Young aka Hova aka Hove, "Ladies is pimps, too") 

Plus a glimpse of the WA2000 Sniper Rifle that G&G had on display as well.

Airsoft. It's why I wake up in the morning (even on Mondays).
