We did something in reverse…

So today we have done something complete against the norm… Especially when this has been so carefully produced by the wizards at Action Sport Games (known more commonly as ASG) in Denmark. We installed an Anti-reversal latch into their Scorpion Evo A3.

WE HAVE A VIDEO AT THE END OF THIS BLOG!

So why does the EVO not have one in the first place? The EVO is finely tuned from ASG to not have overspin issues. This is necessary due to it not having an Anti-Reversal Latch in it, contrary to most other AEG’s.

Why did you do such a thing?!?!

In order to push the CZ EVO to higher rates of fire and trigger response, an ARL function was necessary. Attempting so without an ARL in would result in backspin after every other shot or burst when making something with a significantly faster rate of fire. This could cause the gears to run backwards and hammer the back of the piston, something you really don’t want. Especially on a custom higher rate of fire gearbox build.

off

It’s been seen before that the steel rack on the piston can be forced out through the piston, through the piston-head and into the cylinder! (once again, this is only on modified gearboxes!) Furthermore, backspin could result in double feeds on semi. The gear will overspin, load a new BB, spin back, then load a new BB again upon the next shot cycle.

There is also a trigger response factor to it. When the sector position can rest half-cocked on the ARL, it is effectively pre-cocking. Not as extensive pre-cocking as specific systems like the Gate Titan or some AEG’s without breaking, but enough to make a noticeable difference.

Installing an ARL (Anti-reversal Latch):

So, we are doing this for a customer who wanted a bit more ROF and efficiency from their EVO gearbox, doing this work will void your warranty. We firstly punched out the centre pin of a normal ARL latch. Instead of using the pin we just knocked out, we used the original screw. The ARL is then placed where one of the existing screws is inside the gearbox shell as seen in the photo. The gearbox shell was then cut on both sides to allow room for the ARL latch. You need to make sure that it centred right on the bevel.

on

Due to having a spring wrapped around it, it cannot be a perfect fit with the gearbox shell, and it is important that it has a good fit on the pin (screw in this case). The gearbox screw was screwed further into the gearbox and located in the right position. Then the screw head was cut down to fit the original screw hole further in, offering support on the top shell.

The result came out perfect!
The customer has since used the EVO plenty without any faults from this custom ARL. The nozzle sits consistently, being partially retracted between each shot.

It has enabled us to build an EVO with a higher rate of fire and better semi-response. Even with a DSG setup, a non-ARL EVO is limited in trigger response.

Let’s get tactical!

One of our regulars wanted to take his AK to the next level. First of all, MILSPE. What does it mean? It stands for Military Spec and whenever you see it on our website you will know that item is made to the exact dimensions for it to be used on a real steel weapon.

fitted-vism-ak-rail-1

There are many Airsoft brands that will accept parts and accessories designed for military use (real guns) or may require a little sanding/filing/grinding to for an Airsoft replica.

Why buy Milspec?

Realism! The weight, build quality and markings all make up for the price and 99% of the time when it is fitted to your Airsoft gun it just feels great. You are purchasing reliability and construction quality that is second to none.

So what are we fitting today?

Our customer wanted a VISM Keymod rail installed to their Real Sword AK. The VISM Keymod Rail is a real steel AK rail and will fit most AK’s with no or minor work. In this case, we had to widen the section that surrounds the rear sight block slightly.

fitted-vism-ak-rail-2

Other than that, it’s a perfect fit and sits straight when tightened. The rail is rock solid when installed on a good AK (in this case, a RealSword Type-56). It is very lightweight and offers an increased amount of battery space for Airsofters if so wished.

Some extra juicy details:

The VISM AK Keymod Rail has a large amount of KEYMOD panels, allowing for precise customization of where the user wants to install accessories.

fitted-vism-ak-rail-3

It also features thread holes on top (as well as KEYMOD) for installation of micro-dot sights (specifically NCstar). Micro-dot sights can be installed very low in this way, which allows for co-witness with the iron sights.

But wait there is more!

These rails come in two sizes, perfect for a variety of AK’s and whatever look you are aiming to achieve. Click the images below to be directed to the one you want for your own Airsoft AK Variant.

Fancy your own ROF monster?
We can make your dreams come true. What does ROF stand for? Rate Of Fire, the faster it is the bigger the smile it gives you but we don’t all build and run these for a fast full auto firing mode.

A faster rate of fire is a faster single cycle, meaning a much better single shot trigger response. This is great for faster and more efficient room clearing in any Airsoft game. It allows you to go from one target to the next in a quicker sweep.

So what have we made in the video below? The customer wanted this old school P90 done up. This is a TM P90 with Nitro.Vo P90 rail system, custom suppressor, M4-boxmag system and extended battery cap. Back in the day, these setups were popular and known for their suppressive capabilities.

What did we put inside?
The customer wanted to have this turned into a high rate of fire P90.

We installed the following parts (all parts available from our store, “Click Here” to contact us for telephone orders of these parts:
Keensharp 16:1 gearset
Keensharp double sector gear
Keensharp piston
ASG Ultimate P90 cylinder head
ASG Ultimate P90 nozzle (click here)
Guarder P90 tappet plate
ASG Ultimate MP5 cylinder (click here)
Keensharp Pistonhead
ASG Infinity CNC 22K motor
Guarder steel bushings

Let’s get technical:
We also redid the wiring for less resistance during high current draws. Initially, the rifle was running too fast and was getting tappet/piston PME. At Patrol Base we use the SKAN Chrono, which shows live results when firing full auto. This enables us to easily see when the above-mentioned situation happens.

IMG_6608

We mitigated this by installing a Gate WARFET and used the rate of fire reduction feature to fine tune the maximum functional rate of fire. For spring, we chose the Guarder SP140. This gave us the result of roughly 103-104m/s (340 ish fps). For a smooth DSG SP140 with no piston bearing configuration, that indicates an acceptable level of air compression.

We also installed a 200mm MADBULL 6,03 barrel and a .70 ASG hop-up rubber.

Summary:
The end result is a P90 that shoots 92-93m/s with a G&G .25 BB. This comes out to about 340fps equivalent with a 0.20 BB in energy. The rate of fire is 36rounds per second, with a current draw of about 13-14A. A perfectly efficient result.

Hey guys! We’ve been getting a few questions about Christmas Delivery on TokyWoky, so we’ve compiled a list of the top asked questions. If you don’t know what TokyWoky is, its the chat system down at the bottom right of the page that allows you to ask questions to the Airsoft Community. You can read a more detailed blog on it: TokyWoky Community Chat System 

Last chance for Delivery

Visitor
When is the last time we can get stuff delivered before Christmas?

PatrolBase Jonny
Hey there! Our courier has informed us there will be limited services on the 23rd, so I would recommend placing any order you make at the latest on the 21st as a Next Day Delivery before 2:30pm.
Please note, that any parcel which is dispatched after Wednesday 14th will not arrive until after Christmas.
Hope this helps :)

Last chance for Standard Delivery

Visitor
If i get a standard delivery when will it come?

PatrolBase Jonny
Hey there! I’ve had a chat with the Shipping Department, they have said anything ordered this weekend (17th / 18th December) should arrive in time for Christmas, however any orders made between Monday (19th December) and Wednesday 2:30pm (21st December) should be ordered on a Next Day Service to avoid disappointment! Hope this helps :)

Last chance for Two Tone Order

Visitor
When is the cut off point where I will receive my two-tone for christmas?

PatrolBase Jonny
Hey there! The item will need to be Stripped, Sprayed, and Painted, which ideally means this being done on Monday. I would suggest that the latest time you place an order for a two tone would be this weekend (17th / 18th December), however, I have talked to the workshop who will be trying to do as many as possible before the cut-off on Wednesday but that is cutting it close. Hope this helps :)

You may remember a few weeks ago we asked some of our coaches to test the new NUPROL RZR BBs in our recent Blog Post, TokyWoky Coach RZR BB Test Giveaway, and the results are in. We posted some BBs out to Mullered, Chris Peckham, Olitippo, Cooperman and The Mill Practical Pistol Club for testing in various Guns and different situations.

Mullered – 0.20g

We sent the .20g RZR BBs to Mullered to test in his G&G Firehawk.

Mullered
Sunday was awesome playing with the BBs, not a problem ..maybe the capacity of 3300 could be improved as I have rinsed them all ;)

Chris Peckham – 0.25g

We sent the .25g RZR BBs to Chris Peckham to run in his Scorpion Evo and We-Tech G-Series Pistols, to get his opinions on the BBs during an Airsoft Skirmish, and he agrees there is definitely an improvement made over the first batch of Nuprol BB.

Chris Peckham
I have had the chance to use the BBs in the field and test in more controlled conditions.
Whilst running the New RZR 0.25g BBs I have fired around 800 in skirmish and a further 300-500 In controlled ranged shooting which has given me the opportunity to test how the work. I found that the RZR 0.25g BB are almost the complete opposite of the last brand of BBs NUPROL released and I can tell they have learnt from the mistake and have aimed for perfection in these BBs. In the 3-4 hours skirmishing I did while running these new BB I couldn’t fault them at all, they fed perfectly in my ASG CZ Scorpion Evo 3 A1, we-tech G35 and my we-tech 2T speed G17 and not a single shot was off (At least the ones that I pointed in the right direction) helping me and my team mates the dominate the field that morning.
I also tested them at range on a target. The BBs didn’t lower, if not improved, the performance I am used to with the Evo. No miss fires, no rogue BBs or miss-feeds.
The packaging is also great as it looks good and NUPROL have left the almost standard cylinder shape the most of the company’s who make the gas, BBs , etc. I usually use which means I am not having to pick it up off the floor every 5 minutes which is a nice change. Joking aside the RZR BBs bottle is problem the best looking on the market and it doesn’t feel or look cheap either like some brands.
These BBs have performed great and I would recommend them to all players wanting high quality BBs.

Chris was also kind enough to send us across pictures of himself in his kit, holding the BBs.

Olitippo – 0.28g

We sent the .28g RZR BBs to Olitippo to test in his KWA MP9,  ASG P-09 and G&G Wild Hog.

Olitippo
Hey! Took them to halo mill yesterday and did quite well with them, fed fine in everything and seemed to be accurate enough. Only comments i would have is inconsistent shooting in my Tri shot which is probably the gun’s fault and the BBs had inconsistent air bubbles inside that might effect shooting at long range but for what I used them for is not an issue. Overall I did enjoy using them and they work a lot better for me than the older nuprol BBs. If you would like any other information about my use of them let me know!

PatrolBase Jonny
Hey! which other guns did you use the BBs in? :)

Olitippo
Ran them through the KWA MP9, ASG P09, Umarex UMP at halo mill. Before then I ran them through 2 different G&G M4s and a WE g17 and 1911! They fired fine through everything else aswell.

Cooperman – 0.30g

We sent the .30g RZR BBs to Cooperman to test in his MK23 Socom and AK47.

Cooperman
Hi. I have tested 4x MK23 Magazines (100ish BBs) of the RZR .30g BBs in my garden, No Fliers What so ever, 100% accuracy, No Jams, I’m going to test them when I go to the field and I will tell you as well about that, but so far they are AMAZING!

PatrolBase Jonny
Good stuff! :) Christopher has had good results with his too :)

Cooperman
Any chance me getting my hands on any more? Some mates wana try them, and also i used them in my VSR10 and they are perfect!

Mill Practical Pistol Team, Mark – 0.32g

We sent sent the .32g RZR BBs to the Mill Practical Pistol Team, and asked Mark to give them a go who has won numerous awards and medals during his time as a Practical Pistol Shooter. Mark owns a highly customised Race Pistol, which is specifically designed for Accuracy, Trigger response, and is built to handle Speed Target Shooting competitions using 6mm BB guns.

Mark
I was given a bottle of Nuprol .32 BBs to test in my race pistols.
I previously shot .28′s and to be honest I was more than happy with them, thinking my groups couldn’t get any tighter.
Out came the ‘cheap’ gun, a box Standard Armorer Works HX-2201, this already gave me 2 inch groups at 10M on .28′s so didn’t think it would get any better
WOW, how wrong was I? Well how about 20mm group of 28 rounds! Yep a full Open Division mag full, all into a 20mm grouping. At this point I brought out the ‘Big’ gun, a full custom Airsoft Masterpiece STI DVC. This had a 6.02mm tight bore as it was the best I found for the .28′s I fed it with. In went the .32 Nuprol.
WOW, again 28 rounds down range, no matter which way I measured the group I couldn’t get it over 15mm.
Safe to say I’ve found my new BB of choice for competition use. More than enough umpff to knock a steel popper down at 20M too. Love them.

You can find out more information about The Mill Huddersfield Practical Shooting Club by visiting their Facebook Page.

From all the feedback, the results were great, and we will definitely be stocking the BBs which will all be available online soon!

In conclusion, a massive thank you to all the people that have tested the BBs, and a big shout out to Mullered, Chris Peckham, Olitippo, Cooperman and Mark from The Mill Practical Pistol Club.

Let us know what BBs you’re looking forward to below in the comments section!

Hope this helps :)
