Airsoft Insider Magazine is published by the Maplegate Media Group in Danbury, CT. Best known as the top newsstand publisher of radio control hobby magazines in North America, our four main titles are RC Driver, Fly RC, Radio Control Heli-Pilot and Robot Magazines. The team at Maplegate Media has been together for more than 25 years now and our ability to produce and distribute magazines in niche markets is unmatched.

In November of 2012 it was decided that we’d do some research and try to gauge the level of interest in the Airsoft world for a print publication. We sent a three man team to SHOT Show in Las Vegas to introduce ourselves and the idea of our magazine to many, if not all, of the major players in the Airsoft industry. That trip to Las Vegas in January of 2013 was a turning point for the magazine. In just 8 short months from the time of its inception, we have Airsoft Insider Magazine volume 1 in hand and ready for both players and industry.

Guns. Gear. Tactics. Events. Safety. We cover it all for every level of player, from the noob to the law enforcement trainee to the most advanced MilSim player. We are the first and only of our kind…a U.S. based Airsoft only publication with a print run of 50,000 copies and worldwide distribution. Our goal is to grow the entire sport of Airsoft and every business attached to the industry. Thank you for visiting our website…now please, get outside and play some Airsoft. The graphics are amazing!
