Tis the season for egg nog, tree trimming, the “joys” of hanging lights, and celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ! Of course, there will be gifts as well, which means it’s time to get your airsoft wish list together! I’ve gathered these great airsoft items into one place and separated them into sections to make it easy to find what fits your airsoft style!
The Run and Gun Airsofter
We all like to rush the enemy team from time to time, but some of us are better at it than others. Here’s what you need to take the fight to the enemy!
Gun: ICS CXP16S (Sportline) or KWA KZ.61 Scorpion– ICS makes a great product that’s easy to upgrade. The Sportline models feature a sturdy, light polymer body, reducing your fatigue while rushing up the field to spawn lock the enemy team. The KZ.61 Scorpion features the NS2 gas system for lower gas consumption and a high ROF to insure the kill. You’ll want to pick up some 40 round mags to keep the fun going. You can find some HERE.
Gear: Blue Force Gear Chest Rig– Want one of the lightest chest rigs around? Look no further than the 8.5 ounce, 0.6 mm thick (half the thickness of a dime) Blue Force Gear Chest Rig. Be sure to browse their other offerings to complete your extreme minimalist load out!
Accessories: Angled Fore Grip and Sightmark Reflex Sight– A low profile AFG (Angled Fore Grip) can help improve your weapon control and get you on-target faster. For quicker aiming, get a Sightmark Reflex Sight. I’ve used it for everything from full auto CQB games to long range field engagements without a problem!
If you’re the kind of guy that likes to clear the way for your team with superior firepower while the rest of “those guys” kick down the doors, then here’s what you need for Christmas:
Gun: Krytac LMG Enhanced– It’s an LMG. It’s made by Krytac. It has Keymod rails. ‘Nuff said.
Gear: Lancer Tactical Strike Plate Carrier and Condor M.O.L.L.E. Open Top M4 pouches– While you’re on the field, you must be able to carry as much gear as you need to help those that are less prepared. Carry everything – all those “why not bring it” items – in the Strike Plate Carrier. Keep extra mags at the ready with some open top mag pouches from Condor that use bungee cords to keep your mags secure.
Accessories: 5000 round Box Mag– Dump as many BBs as you feel like into those baddies. This thing makes mid caps scream in terror!
You’re the guy who makes sure people are doing what they need to do to win the game. Your tactics could be enhanced by adding these fine items to your wish list:
Gun: Elite Force 1911 Tac or KWA H&K USP– Get a tactical back up weapon and look cool with the two-tone 1911 Tac from Elite Force. 1911s not your thing? Get a fully trademarked H&K USP from KWA instead!
Gear: Motorola 23-Mile Two-Way Radios– Get battlefield updates and direct the team from across the field with some nice two-way radios! I’ve even set these up with headsets for CQB games to talk with teammates over the noise!
Accessories: Fenix PD35 TAC or Streamlight Protac 2L– Light up the dark while tactically designating targets and stunning enemies with 1000 Lumens from the PD35 TAC. If you’ve been really good this year, you may want to ask for a flashlight from the market leader, Streamlight.
The Working Man
Does functional gear beat out diamond studded, hippie guns any day in your world? Here’s what you’re going to want to find under the tree:
Gun: KWA CQR MOD 2 or G&G CM16 Raider-L or CYMA AK 47- KWA has built a workhorse of an AEG for under $200. It includes the 2GX (2nd Generation eXtream) gearbox for maximum reliability. If you want better parts compatibility for your champion tech skills, while still getting a competition grade weapon, check out the CM16. If you’re looking for an AK that’s known for being a strong weapon both in the field and on the workbench, try a CYMA AK.
Gear: Condor Gen II Battle Belt– I’ve rigged up my own tac belt system before, and it works well, but it would be even better with the right gear. Get the job done with a M.O.L.L.E. compatible battle belt from Condor. Simple add a tactical belt, select some pouches for your mission, and you’re good to go!
Accessories: Elite Force M4/M16 First Aid Tool Kit– Have all the parts you need to fix almost any AEG problem, right here in this kit. HERE is a list of everything you’ll find inside! It’s like dozens of presents in one!
I hope you all have a Merry Christmas this year! You can check out last year’s Christmas list HERE. Let me know what’s on your Christmas list in the comments and on the Airsoft Warrior Facebook page! As always, remember the Reason for the Season, and year round!
