Crosman Stinger P311 Review

 The Crosman Stinger P311 Spring pistol.

     The Stinger P311 was my first Airsoft gun that I ever bought.  It surpassed my expectations and still surprises me.  Airsoft guns from Walmart have a bad reputation, but this defies the trend.  It is remarkably durable (has survived at least 20 drops from 4 feet high, probably due to my attempted spin reloads ;)  )  The FPS seems pretty good, and can punch through one side of a soda can at under five feet.

NcStar 3-9 x 40 Scope

     The NCStar 3-9 x 40 scope is an excellent choice when looking for a scope for Airsoft or any other purpose.  And for the price, it is absolutely outstanding.

DE G36 Review

     The spring G36K by Double Eagle is an extremely cost-effective choice when looking for a starter Airsoft gun or simple replica.  But is it worth it?

Crosman Stinger P36 Mod

     This Crosman pistol was a freebie with the Crosman R39.  For fun I did a little mod and added a silencer.

Hicaps vs Midcaps

     Ever since its introduction to the Airsoft world, the high capacity mag has changed the game.  The ability to hold up to 600 rounds in a normal sized magazine is great, particularly with the outstanding RoF some AEG's have.  But does it take the fun out of the game, and are we better off without them?

     I personally prefer Midcaps to some extent.  My reasons are these:

  • Slightly more realistic
  • No rattling of BB's whenever you move
  • No need to wind up the bottom every 30 shots
  • Cheaper and available in larger quantities
  • More reliable
  • Do you really need to fire off 600 rounds without reloading?

     However, this doesn't mean Hicaps don't have their uses.  In a Mil-sim game, mid caps would be preferable, but in a tournament, Hicaps might save you.
  • If you are going to fire off 600 rounds anyway, wouldn't it be easier to do without switching mags?
  • Although Midcaps are cheaper, you don't need more than one or two Hicaps in most cases
  • Less weight and gear overall to carry around

     I think for target practice Midcaps are certainly superior.  They will also make you want your shots to count instead of spraying all over.  For me, the biggest downsides of Hicaps are the annoying rattle that takes away any chance of stealth and makes it seem less real, and the fact that you don't need to worry about winding the mag once in a while.  It's personal preference, but the situation might help you decide as well.

Mega Missile Mod

     The Buzz Bee Mega Missile is a mixed bag, but overall I think it does not get the attention it deserves.
