Watch in today's airsoft action video as I, along with Brian Holt from Echo1 USA and the rest of the Black Polo Operators destroy a bunch of young kids and otherwise noobz during Game 2 on Code Red Airsoft Park's District 9 field.

Brian Holt literally fires his Echo1 PKM from the hip, while I figuratively fire my KWA LM4 GBBR from the heart.  Hilarity ensues.

Magpul PTS PDR Announcement

Magpul PTS has recently released an update regarding the release of their highly anticipated Personal Defense Rifle (PDR), which has the Airsoft community buzzing like a bunch of those loud, large black bees that look super scary and buzz really loud but are allegedly harmless to humans, unlike their honeybee counterparts.  I still don't trust them though.  Anyway, the PDR:

 No release date has been immediately obvious to me, but I am waiting to hear back from them to see if they'll share a bit more information on this guy.  I can't say I'm nearly as stoked for this rifle as a lot of other people seem to be, but I will admit that it does look intriguingly functional for a MOUT weapon.  Looks like it will take standard M4 mags as well, but I'm just going off the picture there.  

I don't know about the rest of you, but I see some influences on the PDR from other compact personal defense weapons such as the FN F2000 & FN P90, mixed with Magpul's own flare.  It will be interested to see who they used to manufacture this rifle, along with how well it performs, whenever it is they plan to release it. 

Your turn to sound off.  What are your thoughts about this rifle?  Would you actually buy it or is it just one of those guns that is exciting to look at, but you wouldn't actually play with it in a game?  Sound off in the comments below, if you got a pair.

Well, here they are.  CrazyNCman has already given the Elite Force Flip-Up Sights his blessing and I'm most definitely going to give them mine as well.  Half the price of the Magpul MBUS set, yet no less in quality, in my opinion.

These sights a freakin' nice.  Maybe some of the skeptics out there might think that these cheapy little Airsoft sights would just have the Elite Force logo painted on there?  Nope.  Stamped, molded or otherwise sunk into the polymer release button.  Very nice touch.

To be fair and honest, I'm not sure how much play these little white sights are gonna get from Airsoft players who wear any sort of lower face protection.  I guess it would depend on the gun, but I've found it difficult to get a sight picture with the white sights when mounted on my M4 and while wearing a lower face mesh mask.  It's a bit easier to look down them without the mask, so those of you that don't wear one, don't sweat it.  Not a real big deal, as they are not the primary attraction of the set.  But I gotta keep it real for all tha playaz out there.

Here's a quick little video I did, starring the Elite Force Flip-Up Sights.    Be sure to leave me a comment, and maybe even give this little beast a thumbs up if you dig the sights and/or the video.

Magpul PTS Masada - Spartan Imports Booth - Shot Show 2012
Tom Harris for the Pyramyd Airsoft Blog

So I stopped by the Spartan Imports booth while hanging out at Shot Show 2012, however, I apparently missed the big showing of the new Magpul PTS Masada GBBR kit.  So I was a bit bummed about that, but there's only so much one can do.  As I understand it, it's basically a drop-in kit for the existing Masada AEGs, so nothing much different from an aesthetics point of view.  Just know that they're going to be releasing that GBB kit sometime this year.

Trying to make the most of the situation, I decided to snap a few shots of what they didn't have available for display from Magpul PTS.  Some items were new, some not-so new.  Either way, they got their photo taken by me.

See some of the new Magpul PTS Masada AEG photos from Shot Show 2012 after the jump...

For today's installment of my Tuesday Newsday series here on the Pyramyd Airsoft Blog, I thought I'd share a few items I personally found to be a bit interesting around the interwebz.  Perhaps the most eye-catching piece has been on this Cybergun Magpul PTS Masada situation.  The current sit rep appears to be that A&K is rumored to have handed over one of their signature replicas to Cybergun, who as many of you know, is trying to take over the fully-licensed replica world, one Chinese clone at a time.  While I haven't actually seen anything official on either Cybergun's site or their American distribution friends over at Palco Sports, I think I have seen enough around the web to believe the OEM rumors about A&K being true.

So, what I'm hoping is that with the new trademarks, Cybergun will have had A&K up the quality of the internals from the unlicensed version, which has received a number of negative marks from users out there.   But I suppose only time will tell.  I've got a question to you three readers out there:
WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEE ME REVIEW THE CYBERGUN A&K MAGPUL MASADA AEG REVIEWED HERE ON THE PYRAMYD AIRSOFT BLOG?  

If so, just post up in the comments section and if I can muster up enough interest, I'll see about getting my hands on one to tear down and scrutinize, hopefully laying any rumors about quality to rest, good, bad or ugly.
