Igman Ammunition 147 Grain Full Metal Jacket (FMJ) Ammo Details An ammo can full of ammo is like a hard candy shell filled with delicious chocolate. Either thing would have been fine on its own. But together? Perfection. This is 7.62×51 M80 ball ammunition (“M80” basically means this is the most “vanilla” 7.62×51 ammo you could buy). Suitable for rifles chambered for either 7.62×51 or 308 Winchester, this cartridge is loaded with a 147 grain FMJ bullet that ensures positive functionality by feeding smoothly and averting the accumulation of excessive lead residue within the rifling. Igman’s M80 bullet has a lead core and tombac (aka copper-zinc alloy) jacket. Nothing that could attract a magnet here! Igman loads their range rounds with non-corrosive Boxers and clean-burning spherical powder, which both help to keep a rifle cleaner over the course of a range day. The Bosnia and Herzegovina company also draws their own brass cases specifically for this ammo. It’s going to reload nicely, if that’s what you want. Igman’s M2A1 ammo can is a solid, seam-welded steel box that’ll resist all kinds of damage. Its steel latch shuts tight to lock the rubber-gasketed lid in place so it can block out harmful contaminants indefinitely. A must for preppers or folks who take their ammo to harsh environments!

Tan furniture on rifles tends to work best in desert environments. This ARM M14 SOCOM Spring Rifle has a tan stock, perfect for desert soldiers. It’s also a reliable and straightforward beginner airsoft rifle. The rifle comes with a red dot scope calibrated for medium-range shooting, if the required batteries are sold separately. However, it eliminates the need for buying other scopes. For low-light environments, there’s a bottom-mounted flashlight that comes with batteries. If you wish to mount a bipod or foregrip, the light can move onto one of the two side rails. All four rails are Picatinny rails for easy accessory attachment. If the red dot sight fails, there are iron sights on the gun. They’re not removable, though the red dot sight’s mount and RIS handguard prevent them from interfering with the optics package. Specifications: 270 FPS with 0.20g BBs 30 rounds in the magazine Battery included for flashlight only 6 lbs.

Clad in OD Green and walnut – these shotguns stand out without being ostentatious. The muted green Cerakote finish makes them ideal for field work, increasing their hardiness and making them near impervious to the elements. The latest evolution in CZ's semi-automatic shotgun line, the 1012 uses a gas-less inertia operating system. Instead of redirecting gas from the barrel to run the action, the 1012 uses a spring within the bolt to store energy during the shotgun's recoil, spending this energy a split second later to rotate and unlock the twin lugs from the barrel extension and withdraw the spent shell. The major advantage of an inertia system is the less stringent maintenance schedule. Unlike gas guns that need periodic cleaning of the piston and magazine tube, the 1012's needs are vastly fewer. During CZ's testing, we pushed 1012s to 5,000 rounds without a drop of oil or cleaning of any sort, while experiencing zero parts breakage or malfunctions. In normal field use, the occasional cleaning and oiling should be more than enough Additionally, the gas-less system itself is tuned to run a wider variety of shells - from light-recoiling target loads up to the smoking hot 3" magnums currently on the market. Included shims allow the user to adjust the stock to personal preference. Equipped with sling swivels and extended chokes, these shotguns are ready to chase birds – from doves and ducks to turkeys and grouse!

This one of a kind gas carbine from G&G is sure to dominate the battleground with new innovations never before seen on the airsoft market. The SMC 9 carbine is basically a beefed up GTP9 and runs off the same pistol grip and trigger assembly. The SMC 9 Carbine can be broken down into easy to clean sections, and can be used as a standalone pistol if an additional slide is purchased. Unlike most popular carbine version kits, the SMC 9 securely locks in place and replaces the barrel assembly with a much longer one. Using a longer barrel greatly improves range and accuracy, easily reaching those long range targets. The integrated polymer stock provides a sturdy surface to rest against when taking aim, and can be folded against the carbine for enhanced maneuverability in tight places. A 20mm metal picatinny rail along the top of this carbine is perfect for the addition of your favorite optic accessory. The full metal handguard has multiple M-LOK sections for even more customization options. G&G made sure to use an ambidextrous charging handle and fire selector to ensure both left and right handed players can operate this rifle with ease. The SMC 9 now offers burst mode, not available in the classic GTP9 gas blowback pistol. This carbine is still powered by Green Gas or propane which is filled directly into the 50 round drop free magazine. The full metal charging handle assembly will blow back with every trigger pull, replacing the classic slide from the GTP9. Flip-up front and rear sights allow players to quickly and easily zero in their targets on the fly without the need for an additional optic accessory. Remove the metal flash hider to showcase 14mm CCW barrel threads, compatible with most suppressor units and muzzle breaks. Utilize the adjustable hop-up to account for various BB weight and target range for the most accurate performance. G&G has outdone themselves once again to give airsoft enthusiasts a fun and unique carbine option that is sure to satisfy anyone who owns one.

A uniquely original CZ 805 BREN A2 assault rifle replica made under full license by ?eská zbrojovka a.s. by ASG. The receiver was made from metal, similarly to mounting rails, fire mode selector plate and external barrel. The lower part of the receiver consisting of a pistol grip and a magazine socket made from very elastic polymer with an interesting, rough texture. Similar case concerns the stock and the stock slide. In order to manufacture elements that join the replica, such as pins, screws as well as the flash hider or the shell ejection window cover, the manufacturer has used steel, which is always a nice looking addition. The replica contains a gearbox V3 with a reinforced metal skeleton that conceals a polycarbonate piston and its perforated head (during air compression, a seal is pressed against the sides of the piston, which results in its better tightness).Steel gears are mounted on 7 mm bearings. Parts of the entire construction fit very well together and the fact that it is a gearbox V3 allows the user to rest easily and not to worry about the availability of parts or their compatibility.

Hk MP5-40 sear host built by Jayson of Investment Grade Firearms. This was built using a brand new demilled German Hk MP5-40,mp5 for sale and a Special Weapons receiver. The original gun was new, it was a crime to have to cut the original receiver up, but the kit of genuine German parts was a real catch. The SW receiver was the final perfected model. I have built several of these guns with Jayson, and they have been in perfect compliance. As this gun was built from a brand new gun, it was my favorite. This gun was tested by Jayson in full-auto before it was finished; it ran perfect and it is in perfect condition.

ENTER THE AMERICAN 180 The Casull’s successor, the American 180, weighs less than a stripped M16A1 unloaded; most variations are described as being well made and reliable. Original magazines carried 165 or 177 rounds, though larger-capacity drums of up to 275 rounds are still in production today. The 275-round drums do effectively occlude the weapon’s sights, however. E&L Manufacturing, the current producer of American 180 drums, includes an elevated front sight along with the the first 275-round drum you buy. The open-bolt mechanism of the American 180 incorporates a series of grooves in the sides of the bolt that very effectively channel dirt and debris out of the mechanism. The British L2A3 Sterling submachine gun sports similar grooves. The non-reciprocating charging handle is oriented on the left side of the receiver, towards the rear, so that the bulky drum magazine does not interfere with its operation. The drum chassis spins on top of the receiver as it empties. There is a captive screw underneath the forward aspect of the receiver that allows the gun to break down quickly into two handy components. The stock removes with the push of a button in the manner of the M1928 Thompson submachine gun. Particularly with a short 9-inch barrel in place, this makes the American 180 easily packable. The assembly and disassembly processes are relatively straightforward and easily mastered. ADDITIONAL 180 DETAILS The magazine release is fairly intuitive and simple to manage, though the bulky nature of the pan magazine does produce a cluttered sight picture. The ergonomics of the stock and pistol grip are better reasoned than those of the Thompson that obviously inspired them. Overall, the American 180 is a comfortable gun to run. Semi-auto versions of the American 180 have been offered in the past, and these guns come up for sale occasionally on online used-gun forums. While the practicality of a 10-pound semi-auto .22 packing 177 rounds on board might be questionable, there is no better tactical tool should you ever find yourself attacked by a battalion of malevolent chipmunks. I’ve frankly bought guns for dumber reasons. The magazines are a holy pain to load, and the American 180 runs through ammo as politicians burn through other people’s money. E&L Manufacturing also offers a magazine loader that renders this chore a bit less onerous. A single mechanical spring-loaded winder can be used to power multiple magazines. SO WHAT’S IT GOOD FOR? The American 180 was formally adopted by the Utah Department of Corrections, and it was undoubtedly intimidating when wielded from a guard tower at their state penitentiary. There are rumors that the Rhodesian Special Air Service used a few of these novel guns operationally in Africa. However, humping the African savanna with one of these hyperactive little buzz guns must have been a treat. The nature of the design demands that it be fed high-velocity ammo, so suppressed versions remain fairly noisy. Regardless, the company’s marketing efforts were compelling, and quite a few examples were indeed sold to local law enforcement agencies. Many of the guns available today were traded out of police arms rooms over the years. REAL-LIFE SHOOTOUT I could find but a single detailed anecdote involving the operational use of a laser-equipped American 180 by cops in a real-life shootout. In November of 1974, Officers Mike Gilo and Gary Jones of the Fort Lauderdale Police Department attempted to subdue a pair of evildoers driving a Chevrolet Camaro. As the driver of the Camaro accelerated in an effort to escape, his foolhardy passenger produced a handgun and fired at the officers. Gilo responded by unleashing a roughly 40-round burst through the back window of the suspects’ car while Jones engaged with his 12-gauge shotgun loaded with buckshot. The 12 gauge failed to connect; the American 180 stitched across the back window of the car, removing the lot of it. The driver then crashed the car; the passenger was found already heading towards room temperature as a result of multiple .22 LR wounds to his back. The driver was apprehended later, grievously wounded by multiple .22-caliber gunshot wounds but still breathing. In today’s litigious environment, a fully automatic weapon that spews rounds so enthusiastically would be a plaintiff’s attorney’s dream. In the 1970s, however, there apparently weren’t as many lawyers are there are today. HOW DOES IT RUN? Wow. Just wow. Loading the drums is just as big a hassle as I had anticipated; the American 180 does indeed burn through .22 LR ammo at a breathtaking rate. I sucked it up and bought 5,000 rounds for this project just so I wouldn’t feel the effects of ammo famine before I got done. Keeping bursts in the five-round range is not tough for a disciplined trigger finger, and New Math tells us that even the smaller drums would pack 35 such bursts in a single charge. Visualize the fully stoked American 180 like a 10-pound recoilless shotgun that carries 35 rounds onboard. When so employed, the American 180 is accurate and controllable, allowing you to keep every round within a standard silhouette at typical handgun ranges. Reaching out to 100 meters, the gun is more fun than a barrel of monkeys, particularly when fired into a wet target with a safe backstop. Each burst seems like the fistful of gravel we used to throw into the water when we were young boys, producing that lovely little coordinated splash around the point of aim. Against steel targets, the effect is positively musical. Much beyond 100 meters, the American 180 becomes an area weapon system. BAD-BREATH DISTANCES At bad-breath distances, the American 180 is just as nasty as the marketing literature claims it to be. The recoil is so trivial that you really could just about write your name with the thing. When firing a full magazine in a continuous burst from a proper rest, the tidy little gun will indeed group within about a teacup. Such antics will indeed put hair on your chest regardless of your gender, but you could die of old age trying to load enough drums to keep the process vibrant for a while. When appropriately maintained, the American 180 is a reliable and effective close-quarters weapon. With 275 rounds on board, the gun gets heavy, but it offers more controllable firepower than most anything else in the arms room. Given the dynamically rotating nature of the drum magazine and the unimpressive mechanical spunk of the .22 LR cartridge, the practicality of employing an American 180 in an austere field environment is questionable, however. PURE FUN The American 180 is one of the most novel and unusual combat weapons ever devised. For law enforcement or corrections applications, it indeed offers some unique capabilities. However, the real niche the American 180 enjoys is as a recreational range toy. Fairly easy to tote and all but recoilless, the American 180 lets you chew up the range like a beaver on crack. Loading drums will test your patience, and the gun’s appetite will earn you Christmas cards from your favorite ammo supplier. However, as a delightful way to kill a lazy Saturday afternoon at the range, the American 180 is indeed unparalleled. Lightweight, accurate for its genre and just crazy cool, the American 180 is 10 pounds of raw, unfiltered fun.
