So I was able to sweet talk one of our fans on the Pyramyd Airsoft Facebook page to create a guest blog about a little WE 1911 Hop-Up tip that I think is pretty handy to know about. Today, I am proud to present the fine tutorial work of Andy Huggins, WE 1911 Hop-up extraordinaire.

Check out the tutorial video after the jump...

As a follow-up to my video from last week wherein I unboxed the new DoubleStar 1911 Gas Blowback Pistol from SOCOM Gear, which is not yet available on the market, I have added some still shots of said Airsoft gas blowback gun for the benefit of your eyes and your soul.

Today, I uploaded a video of me unboxing the DoubleStar 1911 gas blowback pistol from SOCOM Gear, and boy, let me tell you. I had a good time doing so. This pistol is not currently available on the market, and while I may not be the first to review it, I'm certainly one of the few at this point. Do I think this makes me a better person? No. But it does make me feel better about being bald.

This 1911 Airsoft gun is compatible with Marui & WE Airsoft 1911s, so pretty much all the wonderful upgrades and accessories that work with those 1911s will likely work with this 1911 as well (generally speaking. Some parts may fit better than others). And that, my friends, is called a breath of fresh air.
