Popular Airsoft Magazine May 2008 Issue Available Now


The May 2008 issue of Popular Airsoft Magazine is now released and another reason for an enjoyable download. This issue is about Close Quarters Combat (CQC) and we've got loads of articles for you to read! It's worth the money downloading this issue as it is a much-anticipated one. Our writers have gone beyond the call of duty this time, and have been very prolific at writing stories and making reviews.

We've covered some basics on CQC, and went to Elektrowerkz, the centre for hardcore CQC airsofters in London. What's more, we present to you two face-offs in the budget AEG area, the M4 CQB-Rs from JG, DBoys, and A&K, plus the MP7s from Well and Galaxy.  Going further in our CQC issue, we interviewed two great CQC teams: the FCS Delta-Alpha (Team Dark Angels), and the SWAT Airsofters Philippines. We also have two DIY articles covering tactical lighting and building Patriot M4s. Plus, stuff  from Echo1 USA and Madbull Airsoft were reviewed. And before we forget, we've got two grenades featured in this issue, stuff you can't do without when playing in CQC sites and the airsoft events that happened in the US and the Philippines.
