Vanaras POM M203 Grenade Shell Version 2

19 10 2010

PhotobucketOur good friends at RSOV and Vanaras have supplied us with their new Version 2 self resetting M203 grenade shells for testing. Their previous design was ground breaking in that they created a much lighter weight grenade shell. Over the long term we found issues with the previous design that resulted in the grenade not resetting properly. This new version now has a self resetting valve that hopefully has corrected the shortcomings of the previous design. Want to know how it faired? Well, head on to the link below and find out for yourself.

Project WolfDragon LiPoly PCB Voltage Monitor

20 11 2009

The guys at Project Wolf Dragon have been kind enough to send me one of their new PCB Lite Lipo Voltage Monitors to review and test. What’s it do? It checks the voltage of your lipo while in use, and alerts the user before an the battery drops below the 3v per cell threshold (saving your battery from sure doom). How does it work? How well does it work? Why should I buy one? Well, hop on over to the review and check it out for yourself!

Vanaras Metal Grenade Shell Review

9 01 2009

PhotobucketVanaras sent me this a while back, unfortunately it’s just now that I’m getting around to reviewing it. I know that winter really isn’t the most popular time for grenade shells, but I’ll tell you what, even in cold weather this thing still functioned pretty well. The price is right, but is the performance there? Well, you’ll just have to read up on it to find out!

EGO / Aquilia M203 40mm Grenade Shell Reviewed

1 12 2008

I’m going through a bit of a phase right now involving grenade shells. Odd thing too, given the drop in temperatures here in the Northern Hemisphere. Alas, I am going to continue to systematically review these things through the hard cold winter months.

This review is all about the EGO… or as the package says… Aquilia M203 grenade shell. When you just want to rain down wanton destruction on your foes at the field, nothing says BOOM like an m203 shell going off; but what good does an m203 shell do if it doesn’t hit the target or even function? How well does the EGO / Aquila shell stack up?  Does it work?  Does it hold up to the retailer’s claims?  Well, that’s why I’m testing these things… so you don’t have to. Without wasting anymore time, click the link below and be whisked off to my review of the EGO / Aquilia M203 40mm grenade shell.

ThunderPower RC eXtreme V2 Li-Polymer Reviewed!

29 07 2008

I bit the bullet and went for the lipoly battery.  And of course, I put it in my M249… and in my M14.  One of them didn’t fare so well, but you’ll have to read the review to find out which one!  I must say, that after switching to a lipo… it makes it hard to go NiMH or NiCad again!

If you’re looking to pick up a new li-po anytime soon, let me recommend that you buy from! They haven’t asked me to say this, and they are not officially a sponsor, but I will say they have AWESOME service!
