Welcome

…to the Airsoft Action website!

After seven years of continual publication there are simply too many articles to include everything here, so we have chosen a selection that we hope will give you a flavour of what’s in each issue.

Airsoft Action doesn’t focus on one type of airsoft. We know there are many different styles and genres of gameplay, from Napoleonic warfare, through just about every global conflict and on into the future, be that a Post-Apocalyptic wasteland or fighting the living dead to survive. We believe that all deserve equal coverage and strive to provide our readers with interesting editorial content, complimented by a balanced selection of adverts. We are not – and never will be – a magazine full of adverts with a few bits of “cut & paste” editorial thrown in!

Airsoft Action is also the only UK-based magazine that attends shows and events around the World, with a regular presence at both The SHOT Show in Las Vegas and IWA in Nuremberg. Airsoft Action also covers the prestigious G&G CQB World Championships in Taiwan and regularly has coverage of other events, such as Operation Lion Claws in the USA and Warzone in Crete.

Practical Shooting was all but killed off in the UK and airsoft has meant shooters up and down the country can now enjoy their sport again. Airsoft Action is at the forefront of championing the growth of this highly skillful, competitive sport and will continue to support it at every opportunity, such as The Airsoft Surgeon European Championship. Airsoft Action was very proud to be appointed the exclusive UK Media supporter for the First Action Air World Shoot, which took place in Hong Kong in July 2018.

We have nearly 30 freelance Contributors, each one an airsofter or specialist in their field, headed up by an Editor with many years of experience in both publishing and “force on force” combat sports. Some have military experience, others are involved in the Trade and most are regular players at sites up and down the UK – and beyond.

Airsoft Action is a UK-based magazine with a worldwide readership via its digital publication and regularly receives articles from countries around the World, such as Russia, Spain, Croatia, Brazil, USA, Canada, Germany, France, Panama, Brazil and more recently, South Africa. Airsoft Action is a truly International Airsoft publication – we don’t just write it on the cover, we write about it inside too!

In the UK Airsoft Action is available from UK High Street Newsagents, a selection of Airsoft sites and shops (click [here] for a map of their locations) and as a digital publication on PocketMags, Readly, Magzter and Issuu, plus apps that can be found via iOS, Android and Windows app stores.

Airsoft Action is honoured to support Pilgrim Bandits Charity. Established by a small group of Special Forces veterans in 2007 with the sole aim of using their unique training and experience to help and inspire injured personnel to live life to the full. Their mantra “Always a Little Further” is core to the charity’s attitude; whether working with amputee men and women from the services directly or by utilising their experiences to inspire and encourage young people and children. Pilgrim Bandits don’t do sympathy but do offer the rewards of belonging to a team, encouragement, belief and the power of humour over pain.

To find out more about the charity and how you too can help support it, click [here] to visit their website.

The latest issue hit the High Street today and we are already getting some really good feedback, thanks to all who have sent me some very complimentary emails - much appreciated!

Every issue of Airsoft Action is a true team effort as we try to bring you the widest coverage of everything airsoft - and Issue 93 is no exception.

As summer draws to a close the airsoft festival season has been in full swing and we have reports from two of the UK's biggest: The National Airsoft Festival at Ground Zero, where over 2,800 players enjoyed a superb weekend of rivalry on the field and socialising off of it, plus AirFest 2018, which at just two years old is already becoming a "go-to" event. We also report from the 1Legion Charity event as friends from "across the pond" hit our shores to join in the action and visit a rain-soaked 3-Gun competition in the UK, then head over to Sweden, where Dust Monkey reports from an awesome Post-Apocalyptic event.

There has been much talked about the GBLS DAS rifle and we get our first hands-on chance to see if this high-quality, high-priced rifle really is "more than just another AEG". We also get to grips with the Umarex Tavor GBB, the S&T Beretta M12 and take a look at ASG's Strike Systems range, while Femme Fatale tries out Enola Gaye's new line of "EG25 Micro Smokes".

Back in Issue 83 we took a look at 3D Printed parts for airsoft accessories and now Bill takes a look at a body kit from SRU Precision in Taiwan, to see what happens when you upscale that to a complete carbine kit.

With kit and gear, technical and opinion articles, plus the chance to WIN a NUPROL Tango N96, we hope you enjoy it too!

So here's the thing...

At the recent National Airsoft Festival we spoke to literally hundreds of airsofters who said the same thing (something about "trying a different magazine...") and seeing as how the latest issue had just been printed and we a bunch of boxes with us, we were happy to give them a FREE copy to have a good read …and the feedback was superb!

So we thought, why not give every else the same opportunity?

We came back with just one box of 50 copies of the magazine left and are giving them away for just the cost of p&p!

This is your chance to grab an issue* of The Players Choice Airsoft Magazine for less than two quid but once they’ve gone, they’ve gone so if you want one, grab it now!

Here's the link: www.airsoft-action.online/shop/free-sample-issue/

*Issue 92 – October 2018. 1 copy per order.

Done as well. Ade Lewis try PayPal.

If you like your action films to be zombie-esque, then this will be right up your street - and if you watch closely, you might just spot airsofters playing background roles!

Below is a message from the production company, Intense Productions and we'll have an article in a future issue regarding how the film came about and the involvement of airsoft in it.

Got to say that the trailer looks pretty tasty (and I don't just mean for the zombies)!!

"Redcon-1 has an official UK release date of Friday 28th September, and we have now confirmed the film to be screened across the UK at numerous Vue, Cineworld and Reel cinema chain sites, as well as several indie cinemas.

We currently have over 90 screenings confirmed across 43 towns and cities, including eight screenings at the Vue Birmingham Star City cinema from Friday 5th October through to Thursday 11th October and also at the Cineworld Bristol cinema on Friday 28th September.

If there is anyone you know who would want to come and watch the film, please feel free to forward on the ticket links below, as we are looking to pack out the cinemas and make it a great night."
