SIG SAUER Introduces PROFORCE M18 Airsoft Pistol

Monday, July 20th, 2020

NEWINGTON, N.H., (July 20, 2020) – SIG SAUER, Inc. is pleased to introduce the SIG AIR® PROFORCE® M18® airsoft pistol.

This newest addition to the SIG AIR PROFORCE line is a replica of the U.S. Military issued M18 handgun in look, balance and handling characteristics. As with all SIG PROFORCE airsoft products, the M18 is designed for professional training and for discerning recreational airsoft shooters who demand the highest quality and reliability.

The PROFORCE M18 has an optic-ready slide with removable rear sight plate for easy mounting of the soon to be released SIG AIR Reflex Sight. Like the PROFORCE M17, the M18 is field strippable and features a polymer frame and metal slide with full blowback action. The magazine holds 21 rounds of 6mm polymer or biodegradable airsoft BBs. The PROFORCE M18 also has an adjustable hop-up feature and picatinny accessory rail. It comes standard with a flush mount, green gas magazine. A CO2 cartridge magazine is also available and sold separately.

“The SIG P320-M18 handgun is very popular because of its adoption with the U.S. military as part of the Modular Handgun System. It has since become the official handgun of the U.S. Marine Corps, and was most recently adopted as the official handgun of the U.S. Air Force, which has only increased the demand for the handgun in the civilian market,” said Tom Taylor, Chief Marketing Officer and Executive Vice President, Commercial Sales. “The SIG AIR PROFORCE M18 has the same look and feel as the P320-M18 making it the perfect option for training in a variety of environments and refining your technique when you can’t make it to the range.”

PROFORCE M18 Airsoft Pistol:

Total length; 7.7 inches
Barrel length: 3.5 inches
Power Source: Green Gas or CO2
Caliber: 6mm BB
Muzzle Velocity using .20g Polymer BBs: Green Gas – up to 320fps / CO2 – up to 410 fps
Muzzle Energy: Green Gas – 1 joule / CO2 – 1.5 joules
Magazine Capacity: 21
Weight (w/magazine): 24oz.
Finish: Coyote Tan

The SIG AIR PROFORCE M18 is now shipping and available at sigsauer.com. For more information on the complete SIG AIR airsoft product line visit sigsauer.com/airsoft.

Strike-Hold! – Top 10 Must-Have Airsoft Guns That Don’t Exist – Yet

Thursday, May 16th, 2019

One advantage of airsoft over ‘real steel’ firearms, is you can own airsoft replicas of guns that would normally be out of reach of civilian hands. Having a gas-powered, training-grade airsoft clone of a select-fire, cool guy gun, like, say, an MP7, sure beats not being able to have one at all. However, even with the myriad awesome airsoft replicas out there (Stoner 99 LMG, anyone?), some guns – whether they be classic, early 20th century weapons, rare pre-production models that never got far past the prototype stage, or modern firearms still in development – are just begging for an airsoft replica, but inexplicably don’t have one available. Strike-Hold! has compiled a list of 10 of these guns that are just begging for an Airsoft replica.

It’s a good read, so check it out at the link below:


Seriously, why hasn’t anyone come out with an airsoft G11 yet?

G&P – Stoner U.S. Navy MK23 LMG

Sunday, August 14th, 2011

Manufactured by G&P, the Stoner U.S. Navy MK23 LMG is an airsoft replica of the Stoner 63 adopted by the U.S. Navy SEALs during Vietnam. Quality wise, this is one impressive piece, with the body, outer barrel, heat shield, sights, magazine cage and trigger made of metal; the furniture is polymer. The internals are based on a Version 2 gearbox with 8mm bearings run by a G&P M120 High Speed motor. The gun features a 1200 round box magazine powered by a 9 volt battery, with an auto wind switch integrated with the trigger. Due to the gun’s inclusion in the CoD: Black Ops armory, and it being an alternative to airsoft M60s for use in Vietnam scenarios, I’m sure this’ll sell pretty well among enthusiasts.

Magpul PTS Masada ACR Mistake

Saturday, February 12th, 2011

In my previous article WOLF’s Den, I claimed in the description that the Magpul PTS Masada ACR was made by ARES Airsoft, drawing this information from the video itself. In the comments section, however, Spartan Imports was kind enough to point an error in this, stating that Magpul PTS fully manufactures this particular airsoft rifle, and ARES Airsoft does not. In addition, Magpul PTS does not want association with ARES Airsoft. This particular bit of misinformation is widely spread, and I thank Spartan Imports for the correction.

If you are interested in purchasing a Magpul PTS Masada ACR you can find a dealer on spartanimports.com where you’ll also find a variety of other airsoft weaponry and accessories.

Time Freeze Shootout

Thursday, February 3rd, 2011

Yet another video by ‘freddiew’ that seems to be somewhat of a sequel to his earlier Chrono Trigger vid. For a recap, he mostly uses special effects such as green screens and editing software along with airsoft weapons to achieve the desired results. It’s always cool to see what you can come up with using modern software.
