MilSim Event Review of WT Tactical

Monday, December 5th, 2011

Some of the guys from MSE went out hunting for some piggies, doing some four-wheeling and basically just spending three days in the mountains proving that adage about men and boys and the price of their toys. Check it out. The actual reviewing is at about 3:20 and 6:16, but if you want to just feel bad that you didn’t get to go play and they did then watch the whole thing.

Voodoo Tactical’s “Matrix” Pack

Thursday, December 1st, 2011

MilSim Event (we reported on their upcoming Reindeer Games a while back) did a review of the Voodoo Matrix pack. Now, what’s interesting about this review is the guy doing the synopsis isn’t just a MilSim enthusiast. He’s a

Multiple Applications Group Giveaway

Wednesday, November 30th, 2011

The Multiple Applications Group “M7 MilSim Unit” is giving away a tactical rig once they reach 500 ‘likes’ on Facebook. Here’s their explanation:

Here’s the rig in question, followed by an explanation of their group. If you go check them out, tell ’em Tactical Fanboy sent you.

“Consisting of current and former Military, IC’s, and Civilians, Multiple Applications Group is a collective of professionals taking a combined 40+ years experience in ‘Extreme Applications’ and applying the knowledge to scenario preparation, training elements, product testing/review, and delivery of experienced advice.

Extreme: Reaching a high or the highest degree.
Application: The act of putting something to use.

We are faced with Extreme Applications on a daily basis. Whether driving in a bad storm, fast roping from a helo under fire, or pushing for that last mile in a marathon. It is something we face in our daily lives yet we rarely prepare for. It is in that moment when ill preparation meet with an outstanding circumstance that we choose to excel or let consume us.”

Ft. Hood Triple MOUT: Opn Reindeer Games X

Friday, November 25th, 2011

Lotta folks have been to Ft. Hood over the years, military, dependents and civilians. A LOT of troops, considering it’s been around since WWII. Not everyone liked it, of course, but it is a soldier’s right to complain. Here in just a couple weeks you can spend the weekend there, get in a hell of a fight, then come home; and you won’t be complaining. It’s Operation Reindeer Games 10. This one is being run by MilSim Event, to show you a good time AND to help out Toys for Tots. This year’s Reindeer Games will be held at the Ft. Hood Triple MOUT Facility on 07 DEC 11. From the SIGINT and HUMINT we’ve been able to gather, there will be a number of shooters at this operation from Texas (obviously) but also from Oklahoma, Louisiana and other states. The background detail is pretty impressive. In fact, it seems had to believe they’ll be able to pack all of it into a one-day shoot-fest. MilSim Event is a relatively young MilSim organization that has made quite mark on the MilSim world in just a short period of time. They’ve run a number of very successful operations with many notable features (like having shooters in a helicopter making gun runs over the guys on the ground). More information below. Note that you gotta have biodegradable BBs, proper uniform and a toy for Toys For Tots. Missing any of those things, you might as well not even come through the main gate.

Impact Games and Island Foxes

Friday, November 18th, 2011

So, the MilSim hottie (hotty?) we ran earlier is apparently one of the Island Foxes of Hawaii. She and a mouth-watering array of other girls and gear can be found on the Impact Games website. Looks like they supply a wide range of kit and do some custom work as well.

Dare we say it? ALOHA ALINA!

Magpul PTS: Only from Spartan Imports…and the Masada is coming

Monday, November 14th, 2011

We got the word from the gentlemen guys over at Spartan Imports that the upcoming Magpul PTS Masada AKM (an airsoft replica of the 7.62 x 39mm variant of the Magpul Masada) is on the way and will be available in time for Christmas. If you’re into MilSim at all you probably already know who Spartan is, but if not then you should check them out. They’re a family operated MilSim Airsoft operation out west (in California, in fact, though try not to hold that against them). They are the sole authorized distributors of PTS by Magpul: PTS is Professional Training & Simulation, which was established in 2007 to meet the high demand for airsoft-compatible Magpul accessories. For those of you who use airsoft weaponry as a training tool, this allows for realistic and accurate weapons and attachments for your scenarios and other training iterations. Of course, they look good for civilian sport use too. As Magpul says, “By maintaining the same basic form and function as Magpul weapon components, PTS equipment allows users to safely practice drills and perform scenarios without the use of live weapons or ammunition.”

Spartan Imports is the only US distributor of Magpul PTS products (including all accessories, the ACR /Advanced Combat Rifle, and the FPG/Folding Pocket Gun). Now, these guys can be overachievers…personally we blame the boss, though it’s entirely possible his little brother is equally to blame. Anyway, because of that you have several related Facebook pages to check out:



Here are some pictures of PTS furniture on a good training weapon. Stay tuned if you want to see some info and pictures of the Masada (they’re already carrying rails and some other pieces for it). There are a few out but we’ve been promised some additional shots. More to follow. Here are some shots of the Magpul Professional Training & Simulation kit:

Battle for Liberty Begins Tomorrow

Friday, October 28th, 2011

MilSim Event has once again set up a hell of ride for those of you into shooting the hell out of each other. They’ve once again staged an operation in Liberty Village at Camp Gruber, Oklahoma (just a few minutes out of Muskogee; Camp Gruber has an awesome MOUT facility, the same one that used to host the Bold Lightning Urban Warfare School). There’s something like 30 structures there, some nice rat-infested sewers to clear and a five story hotel that’s damn near a platoon sized objective (well, depending on the OPFOR of course). A little trivia: Camp Gruber used to be home to several divisions, and during WWII it held several thousand POWs from Rommel’s Afrika Korps.  Until a few years ago it was home to the DEA’s “Narc Assault” Air Assault/STABO school, then the National Homeland Security Training Center (thousands of police, fire and military ran through exercises there). At one time it actually had a small MOUT area set up below a huge, emtpy underground cistern that almost nobody knows is still there.

Anyway, we digress. This is from their website:

Milsimevent.com Presents
Battle for LIBERTY

Part 1, The Cookson Hills Raid
Camp Gruber – Gore, Ok
October 29th 2011

The Battle for LIBERTY Milsim Series at the MOUT sites in the Camp Gruber training facility is here. Part 1, The Cookson Hills Raid will be the first of 5 in this annual series. Part 1 will set the stage for how the series will be fought, it will introduce you to a new style of MOUT game mechanics along with all the Areas of Operation, refined milsim rule sets what the game will demand from you, your squad, platoon and army…

Coalition forces will be deployed on a continuous 8 hour operation in an area of the Cookson hills where insurgency has more than set in. This is the breeding ground for the new wave in global terrorism. The mission has high known risks but the Brass needs a foothold in a town, codename MAC, just outside of the major urban area, codename CTF, where the insurgent populous has a strangle hold like no other in history. The CIA stays to the outskirts, never venturing in and the locals are scared to leave. There is no law and the rag tag local army is left alone unless they try to enforce laws. An entire SpecOp team went missing only a week earlier and now the Coalition forces will have to face the inevitable.

Spartan Imports Advises SCARs are in Stock

Monday, October 24th, 2011
Spartan Imports is advising us that VGC Licensed FN SCAR AEGs are now in stock. They’ve been around for a long time and not only have their fingers on the pulse of what goes on in the airsoft world, they are strong supporters and proponents of airsoft use in military and LE training. (We know this because one of your humble team of TFB fightin’ bloggers actually spent a very long week training with a couple of the Spartan boys and a number of LE/military personnel at a tactical school in Kansas City a couple years back).  Anyway, see below for the latest update from them.

Airsoft Extreme Max AEGs

Friday, October 21st, 2011

Airsoft Extreme has put together a couple of their “AE Max AEGs” using Classic Army AR001 M-Xs and a number of different Magpul MOE parts…like a kit bash in 1/1 scale for MilSim. Check ’em out, if you’re into that stuff. Some of you eeee-light team of tactical bloggers here didn’t used to be, until we attended an extremely arduous SWAT school and saw what an excellent training tool they can be. That put an end to the close-minded mockery of MilSim “wannabes” (well, most of it…sometimes it’s just too tempting not to make fun of the guys who take themselves too seriously).  It was just a short jump from there to doing it recreationally.

King Arms Colt M4 MOE

Saturday, September 17th, 2011

The King Arms Colt M4 MOE is an officially licensed Colt AEG airsoft rifle outfitted with authentic Magpul PTS accessories. It features a full metal barrel and internals including the full-metal gearbox with 7mm bearings and a high-torque motor. For those interested in exactly which Magpul parts are included, they are a MBUS flip-up rear sight, MOE hand guard, MOE pistol grip, MOE stock and a 360-round magazine modeled after the PMAG. At 7 lbs., it’s around the same weight as a real steel M4 which makes it great for training. Two models were released, one with black and one with tan accessories.
