    New Age of Mosfets

    I can appreciate keeping the price point low, but the problem with cheap mosfets is they break and require a level of technical knowledge to fix. This move to include more high end electrical systems in mass produced rifles could help reduce this occurance. While paying $400 for a rifle won't be for everyone, I just love that the option exists to get a high end mosfets for sub $1,000. I hope to see more brands teaming with comoani s like Gate and BTC in the future.
  2. My body and mind are ready.
  3. I recently took the step to replace the fried stock G&G micro-switch trigger and mosfet with the new Gate Aster. More specifically, I had Nox do it... Anyway, while researching the newest Gate offering, I came across multiple rifles which came pre-installed with this $70 programmable mosfet. This alone did not surprise me as companies such as Umbrella Armory has been using the Gate Titan for years; however, I was surprised to find multiple sub-$500 rifles pre-installed with these high end mosfets. I've provided a couple examples below, which obviously may no withstand the test of time, but each (KWA Tekken TK45 & EMG Daniel Defense M4A1) can be purchased for less than $500. The KWA is actually only charging a $10 premium for the installation of the mosfet for a total increased cost of $80 above the base rifle. KWA Tekken TK45: https://www.evike.com/products/14413/ EMG Daniel Defense M4A1: https://www.evike.com/products/94420/ (currently on sale for $299 which just melts my brain a little). I feel that this is a positive trend in the airsoft world. The ability for individuals with limited technical skills or limited time can now purchase a mid-tier rifle with a high end programmable mosfet pre-installed. I hope we continue to see this trend continue into other manufacturers and end the rain of mediocre pre-installed mosfets (looking at you G&G, ICS, G&P, etc). I also hold hope that as more manufacturers begin using higher quality stock mosfets, the high-end aftermarket industry may feel the need to offer more competitive pricing. What are your thoughts? Have you seen other rifles offered with these pre-installed aftermarket electrical upgrades? p.s. The Gate's binary trigger programming is just hilarious.
  4. This is why I always check with the calendar keeper. XD
  5. I heard back from the EO. It appears that everything is on the up and up.
  6. I have a few questions. 1. Is this location owned by the event organizers (Birds of Prey)? 2. It appears to be located in the middle of a neighborhood, so has the local PD been made aware of the event? I'm very interested in in the AO, but I'm not interested in getting arrested when angry neighbors call the local PD.
  7. That is very unfortunate. I definitely feel for the homeowner. Everyone should be able to enjoy their property without worrying about men dressed like soldiers (accidentally) walking through their property. Hopefully this can be resolved without attorneys.
  8. I'll be there. You had me at... Airsoft?
  9. I'm sorry to hear this, Will. I look forward to play with you guys again soon and I will have you guys in my prayers until then.
  10. I'll be there. This should be a great event as usual.
