SHOT Show 2019 Day 1: RWA B.A.D. Rifle Project, PTS & G&G New Releases
23 Jan 2019
It’s the first day of the SHOT Show 2019 the massive shooting industry trade show in North America that is hosted by the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF). Yesterday, media representatives were treated to actual hands on shooting of real steel guns at the Industry Day at the Range, but today is really the start of hard work from the exhibit floor.
For the airsoft community, we are in for a treat as at the RedWolf Airsoft, they announced the RWA Battled Arms Development (BAD) Rifle Project. Last year, we featured the BAD Paratrooper & Tanker Rifles which we first revealed a the SHOT Show 2018. What we like with these rifles are the touches of wood such as the handguard and the pistol grip that are made of Grade A French Walnut. Both rifles use the RIGIDRAIL M-LOK free float rail system. Tanker has its buffer tube as another piece from the lower receiver and it is attached with the use of a short buffer tube while the Paratrooper has the telescoping stock machine to the lower.
RWA and BAD announced licensing partnership in 2016, little did we know however that they are working on airsoft versions of the Tanker and Paratrooper. The news from the RWA booth at the SHOT Show 2019 is music to our ears. Photo below from RWA UK and a video from RWTV shows Marck West with a Fortis project as well.
The Airsoft.nu guys are the SHOT Show too and their preliminary video is about the G&G releases for 2019. We’re not quite sure if this video was taken from the booth or from the G&G HQ in Taichung.
