Over the weekend of 7th/8th September a hacking attempt was made to delete the Airsoft Action website.

Although there was little damage, a number of images were deleted so you may notice “blank boxes” in certain places.

We apologise for this and are working as hard as we can to remedy it.

Be assured that no personal data was compromised at any time.

Welcome

…to the Airsoft Action website – home of the award-winning airsoft magazine and winners of the prestigious Popular Airsoft Players’ Choice Award for Best Airsoft Magazine (Print and Digital) for thee years running!

After nearly eight 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.

Love LCT. Great quality. Real steel feel.

Hapheastus are doing a GBBR version, a pity that GHK have not run with it as they are easily the best AK GBBRs.

Waiting for the GBBR

AIRSOFT SURGEON CHAMPIONSHIP 2020 ANNOUNCED!

THE AIRSOFT SURGEON CHAMPIONSHIP 2020
IS MOVING TO THE NATIONAL EXHIBITION CENTRE!

14th-16th February 2020

In 2020 the world-renowned AIRSOFT SURGEON CHAMPIONSHIP is moving to its new home at the NEC, Birmingham, UK, to run alongside THE GREAT BRITISH SHOOTING SHOW.

The AIRSOFT SURGEON CHAMPIONSHIP started in 2013, with nearly 80 practical shooters vying to win the first ever European Championship and has run every year since except 2018, due to the inaugural World Championship taking place in Hong Kong. The 2019 Championship was held at a custom venue on the Isle of Wight but such has been the interest, a new home was needed that could accommodate the ever-increasing number of shooters hoping to take part.

Following negotiations with FRL Media​, the company behind both THE GREAT BRITISH SHOOTING SHOW and WAR & PEACE REVIVAL, the AIRSOFT SURGEON CHAMPIONSHIP 2020 will take place in Hall 9 at THE GREAT BRITISH SHOOTING SHOW, at the NEC. This will not only allow for an increase in the number of shooters and stages but will also bring the highest level of airsoft practical shooting to the attention of the tens of thousands of visitors to the show.

Airsoft Surgeon, Clarence Lai, commented: “Airsoft practical shooting, also called “Action Air” by the IPSC, has grown very quickly as a competitive shooting sport and with the success of the World Championship in Hong Kong bringing nearly 600 shooters from around the world together, we needed somewhere that could accommodate a bigger event. I am really happy that we can run the event at THE GREAT BRITISH SHOOTING SHOW as this is the perfect place to showcase our sport and welcome others to our international family of shooters.”

Chris Kong, the UK Organiser and brainchild behind the event, added: “When we started the AIRSOFT SURGEON EUROPEAN CHAMPIONSHIP, we knew we had an excellent event but have struggled to find the perfect venue. Due to the nature of airsoft, outdoor venues proved to be “challenging”, with either wind or rain or, more often, both at the same time causing problems.

“We are absolutely delighted that FRL MEDIA will accommodate the championship alongside the GREAT BRITISH SHOOTING SHOW at the NEC, as this will provide sufficient space to put on a truly world-class event and, as for the location, it simply could not be more perfect – and this year, the match will be across all three days so shooters will also have time to enjoy the show!”

More details will be announced soon, along with information about a special “Juniors Match” for juniors who cannot compete in all three days due to school/education requirements.
