Project Tank On GoFundMe

Saturday, March 5th, 2016

Project Tank is a campaign being held for the benefit of Simon Jameson, an airsoft player living in Ireland. Simon suffers from Duchenne Muscular Dystropy, and although this leaves him wheelchair bound, he has spent almost a decade playing airsoft. Simon love for the game is so great, he has even been granted the opportunity as the first disable person to participate in a MilSim game in a British Army MOD fibua city called Copehill Down; three times, in fact. The Project Tank campaign is an effort to seek the funding necessary for Simon to purchase a HexHog, an all-terrain wheelchair which will greatly aid in his overall mobility when playing airsoft and MilSim.

You can check out the Project Tank campaign at www.gofundme.com/cqj26f4k.

SHOT Show 2016 – PTS – Mega Arms MKM .308

Tuesday, January 26th, 2016


My friends over at the PTS booth had a lot of great stuff to show me, some of it already on the market, some of it new for 2016, but there was one product that caught my attention above all the others: the PTS Mega Arms MKM .308. Built around the Mega Arms MKM platform, the MKM .308 is based on a real steel .308/AR-10 rifle, and it shows. It’s not only a hefty beast of a gas blowback rifle, but the bolt itself is a monster; you can feel it slam forward with quite a bit of force for an airsoft rifle. Additionally, the MKM .308 will be capable of semi-auto and 3-round burst fire.


The magazine that comes with the MKM .308, the EPM LR, is a proprietary mag built to PTS’ own specifications just for this gun, and quite frankly, it’s heavy enough to cause extreme bodily harm if used as a blunt instrument.

The MKM .308 will be available later this year from PTS.

    Wednesday, October 8th, 2014


    KRISS Group SA officially entered into a trademark licensing agreement with War Sport Industries, LLC to produce the LVOA rifles, in .22 LR and 6mm, through its training and recreational shooting products brand, KRYTAC.

    October 7, 2014 – Nyon, Switzerland – KRISS Group has entered into a worldwide license agreement with War Sport Industries, LLC to manufacture and distribute .22 LR and electric airsoft LVOA rifles under KRISS Group’s KRYTAC brand.

    The agreement between KRISS Group and War Sport Industries represents an important step forward for KRYTAC to produce affordable training solutions based on innovative firearm products. The LVOA’s advanced design compliments the KRYTAC rifle product line with its unique silhouette and reputation for excellence.

    “War Sport Industries is very excited to be partnering with KRISS Group SA in the LVOAtm trademark licensing agreement for the KRYTACtm and .22 LR product lines. The partnership brings two very innovative and “out of the box” manufacturers together to offer both training and recreational shooting products known as KRYTAC,” said Joey Boswell, CEO of War Sport Industries, LLC.

    The KRYTAC LVOA .22 LR is intended to become the affordable shooting alternative for the range day enthusiast and tactical trainer by replicating the form and function of the 5.56mm LVOA rifles. The KRYTAC LVOA AEG (Airsoft Electric Gun) will provide shooters with a low impact, non-lethal training solution and replicate many of the same features of the War Sport LVOA rifles. It will be powered by the KRYTAC Nautilus 8mm Reinforced Gearbox.

    The KRYTAC LVOA .22 LR and AEG are targeted for 2015. Release dates and pricing will be announced at the 2015 Shot Show Exhibition in Las Vegas, USA.
