Firstly I would like to say a huge thank you to Joe & Darren the masterminds behind Airsoft Operators box for sending us this box to review, to say my son is over the moon is an understatement!
Airsoft operators box if you haven’t guessed is a box created for those who love airsoft. Each box will always contain a bottle of Draft Club bb`s and a choice of either Tea, Coffee or Hot Chocolate from Veteran-owned companies. The rest of the box is a mystery but it’s sure to help you up your game and be the best of the best.
My son has been obsessed with airsoft since the age of 12 and begged me for an air-soft gun for the last 4 years ( Nerf a long time before that, seriously you should see his collection) Arms have always been something that has interested him and he is keen to go into the military. So being close to leaving school and a very sensible lad, I decided it was time to get him into a hobby that didn’t involve a controller, something that got him outdoors, something that would help reinforce honesty, good sportsmanship, teamwork, how to follow direction and something he was passionate about ( and something that would get the lads out from under my feet for a while ha-ha). Then I saw the Airsoft operators box it seemed the perfect solution, I myself am keen on outdoors laser quest and Paul used to have a range of airsoft guns among over things, luckily we live in an area rife with countryside and plenty of clubs and organisations along these lines allowing for plenty of father-son or mother-son time.
Unfortunately, my son is one of those teens that hates being on camera so I and Paul unboxed live I think Paul turned into a bit of a kid at the sight of all the gear and was to be wholly honest a tad bit ( a lot) jealous, you can check it out here…

The Draft Club – 0.25 BB’S RRP £8.99
The Draft Club Ultra-Fine Precision Expert Grade BBs are a new breed of high-quality Airsoft ammunition. Designed and manufactured to engineer specifications helps eliminate internal bubbles and other compositional defects, achieving very tight tolerances due to a 5-6 hour polishing cycle. Strict manufacturing processes combined with vigorous quality testing makes our BB one of the most uniform, balanced and spherical on the market, resulting in smooth feeds, jam elimination and ultimately improved accuracy, grouping and range. There are 4 options
- Yellow Top – 0.20g
- Orange Top 0.25g
- Red Top – 0.28g
- Green top – 0.30g
In this months box was the Orange Top 0.25 edition, The 6mm BB’S are easy to load have precision aim and do exactly what the bottle says and with 3000 rounds gives you plenty of ammo in a easy to carry casing, Not one of the BB’S was damaged as I have previously found in BB bottles from other brands, meaning we will get use from all 3000! A huge thing because no one wants to be caught short in the middle of an airsoft combat match, or just as you are about to make your escape with the flag with a dud bullet or even worse running out!

A few Words From the Lad of Few Words
The gear seems really good and useful for going out to recon ( our local airsoft club), the BB’s are awesome and of course my favourite part of testing this box. The hot chocolate is immense, the patch made me smile and is a great way to customise my gear. I would love to get this box again and would recommend it for anyone interested in or already into airsoft it’s a great hobby to have and cool as well.
A Mans Opinions ( well a Pauls ha-ha)
I really liked it, everything in the box had a use. Apparently also a man of few words.
I love it the concept is brilliant and the Airsoft operators team have executed it perfectly, The box contents are really well thought out and put together with precision, it’s a great way to build your kit up and give the subscriber the upper-hand in the form of an exciting surprise each month. Each box iv seen from Airsoft operators has an RRP that surpluses the cost of the subscription including shipping making it not only a brilliant concept, fun and exciting but also value for money, something we all love. Each item in the box was high quality and durable, the customer service was amazing, Joe knew it was for my son and included the hot chocolate for him. There is honestly nothing bad I can say about it! It’s even got me wanting to get out there and involved and I’m dying to see what cool kit features in next months edition. It would make the perfect Christmas gift or treat for yourself.
