BO Manufacture MTO PHANTOM

BO MTO Phantom

Franska BO Manufacture har tillsammans med airsofttidningen 020Mag publicerat information och en video om airsoftvapnet ”BO MTO Phantom” som kommer lanseras under 2016 och som enligt BO Manufacture är en revolution inom airsoftindustrin genom att airsoftkulor skjuts med hjälp av magnetism.

Det som utlovas med MTO Phantom är bland annat att den ska klara av att skjuta minst 1 miljon airsoftkulor innan underhåll behöver göras, batteriet räcker till en veckas spel, millisekunds-respons vid tryck på avtryckaren och samma utgångshastighet vid varje skott. Dessutom väldigt tyst så att i princip bara ljudet av flygande kulor hörs.

Av vad som framgår av informationen verkar MTO Phantom vara det ultimata airsoftvapnet, men vi ser fram emot mer information framöver, däribland försäljningspris.

Om utkastet av lagförslaget från EU för strängare vapenlagstiftning

eu-flagga_airsoftnu

De flesta har säkert redan på ett eller annat sätt hört talas om utkastet till lagförslaget/direktivet (Council Directive 91/477/EEC) i EU om att skärpa vapenlagstiftningen i respektive medlemsland.

Airsoft.nu har medvetet avvaktat att skriva något i väntan på officiellt uttalande från European Airsoft Association, men nu har de gjort ett uttalande och här är det.

Halt the EU attack on Replicas!
Please watch this video for a short summary of the situation.
https://youtu.be/dxrhkFqunBM

Here’s the full explanation;
For many years The European Airsoft Association has been concerned that a European directive could damage or even ban airsoft. Once implemented, all EU member states are obliged to put regulations into local law. At that point it’s too late, you cannot stop it in your own country. Unless we act, this exact scenario could happen very soon.
An anti-firearms group within the EC has published a proposal which primarily aims to get rid of all semi auto live firearms and most deactivated firearms. They are playing on people fears after the horrible terrorist attacks of the last year, but this is a cynical excuse for them to pursue a pre-existing agenda. The terrorist attacks have been carried out with illegally held weapons that have mostly come from military armouries via armed conflicts in the Balkans. These events are not connected to civilian firearms or to replica firearms either.
Although they present no argument against the current status of non-convertible replica weapons in the paper they throw in this subtle, yet devastating change to the classification of replicas-
(iii) In Category C, the following points are added: ”5. Alarm and signal weapons, salute and acoustic weapons as well as replicas
This would mean that all replicas in Europe would become ‘firearms subject to declaration’. This would mean the following changes (subject to local laws);
• All replicas would need to be registered
• You would need to apply for permission to own a replica and would likely be subject to checks and licencing
• All replicas would be allocated a serial number
• You would require a European firearms pass to take replicas to a foreign country
• Internet sales would be banned (as the proposal also puts forward a ban on remote sales for all firearms).
We believe this change will be impractical, extremely hard (probably impossible) and expensive to implement, take resources and focus away from criminals and terrorism, will ruin a thriving airsoft retail industry and will not make citizens safer at all. As you may be aware, a worrying historic occurrence in some European countries has been forcing the register of firearms as a precursor to a ban and confiscation.
Here’s what you can do to prevent this-

1. Share this news story. Get the word out to your airsoft friends and contacts. Translate it into your native language. Use the hash tag ‪#‎airsoftineurope‬

2. Fill out the feedback form for the proposal. https://ec.europa.eu/transparency/regdoc/?fuseaction=feedback&docId=3085376

3. Email your MEP. Tell them why they need to vote against this proposal!

4. Email a member of SEDE (EU Subcommittee on Security and Defence) http://www.europarl.europa.eu/committees/en/sede/members.html?action=0

Please stick to these rules-
• BE NICE! We want to win them over to our point of view, not make them see us as angry, unpleasant or single minded! Most MEPs won’t even be aware of the change affecting replicas, or the consequences of the change.
• STICK TO THE POINT. Tell them that non-convertible replicas should not be classified as firearms by being added to Category C of directive 91/477/EEC
• TALK ABOUT YOU. Tell them about how the changes will hurt you and your friends, your industry, your hobby. Talk from a personal perspective.
• FEED BACK THE RESPONSES. Forward all responses you get to me, furey_x (at) yahoo.co.uk . We need to know how MEPs feel about this paper. I am building a database of the airsoft allies and supporters.
This amendment is being fast tracked (they are even going to skip the normal Economic impact assessment) and could be voted through in a very short space of time, so you need to act as soon as you read this (if you haven’t already).
Airsoft players should also stand with their cousins in the live firearms and deactivated firearms communities, they will also have their hobbies destroyed when none of us have any connection to recent events. Together with them, it is possible to act as a huge grass roots body and put down this ridiculous proposal. The EAA will also be lobbying the EC directly so like our FB page and we will keep you up to date with any new information.

150rds Bhive Tracer-magasin från Modify

IMG_9593

Tillverkaren Modify i Taiwan har skickat in information om deras kommande tracer-magasin i produktserien XTC.

A little story of beehive magazine plate: we found that the wild bee nested around the office many times during the development phase. Even though we called the fireman to take off, the wild bee still came back to nest. We had a sudden whim to make some products to “Bhive”. That is why we have this design.

We are going to release the 150rds Bhive tracer magazine. If you are early adopter, maybe you can try 150 Bhive tracer mag. The Bhive 150rds mid-caps continue with some of features of XTC magazines.
l The rib allows you can DIY a little bit to fit the magazine funnel perfectly.

l Bhive magazine plate for smoother, faster magazine reloading and handling.

Here is the tracer test: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LQslutgB784
