Works out to be about £3500 each, they are crowdfunding for 100, can't really tell what system it is but certainly GBB, I'm guessing WE mags just from the fact that they're the only people that make 20 round 5.56 style magazines?

If they're going by those diagrams I'd say it's a PFC. No telltale elements of a usual GBB system.

The link isn't working for me, mate.

Really cool to see something like this, although that price!

Would live that as a AEG!
I'm one of those weirdo's that likes GBBr's but only as a SBR. Can't say why though.

Those are real steel internals. Anyone familiar with the L85 (aka AR18 bullpub) will recognise the bolt carrier assembly.

If I were heading up this project I'd make it using a WE L85 BCG and a WE M4 FCG. Easy.

I'd have to agree. There's no indication that it's an airsoft gun at all. That bit connected to the hammer could be a valve knocker I guess, but they don't show a valve on the magazine or any kind of bbu in the bolt. Nor any kind of gas route bucking. Nor anything that shows that it shoots BBs.

Either they purposely left functional parts out, or it isn't a GBB or an aeg. Looks more like a diagram for a real ar18 honestly, though I'm not familiar enough with them to say.

Title of photo album says "AR18 Dummy Model Project in Progress" literally, in context the Project in Progress is more like the project is still in planning stage.

 

The bigger blob of text says they measured civi model of AR180 manufactured by Howa, built the 3D model and they're very serious about the data conversion, that makes a future dummy model possible. BUT, due to complexity of molding and *suitcase*, pricing of each dummy is approx. 500k yen IF 100 dummies are produced. 

 

I'm too lazy for the last part, so:

  • Profit
  • Crowd Funding
  • Price not final

WTB: MARS Rail Hmmm, screw it, nevermind.

The thing on the left is the bolt stop and the rod on the right is for the dust cover.

Why a model gun of the long discontinued AR 18? Does it have a following?

It was produced for a while by Howa and is the basis for the Type 89 so I guess it's got a fair share of a cult following over there.

Not to mention it was produced in the UK by sterling with a lot of them ending up in the Northern Ireland conflict.

I like the shorty version with the front grip.

Which is why it's model gun (the highest form of replication, in Japan), not airsoft.

With the armoured piercing bullets of my little Armalite.'

Sterling AR18s were also used for early SA80 prototypes. Enfield basically *fruitcage*ed over Sterling and made quite a bit off of them.

ZEKE? I thought they were long gone. have they produced anything in the past 15 years? They were never high quality back in the day even.

 

This project is overly ambitious from a company with no actual track record, overpriced as sin and generally... uninspiring. then again,  crowdfunding is literally give me money for nothing and don't expect anything. so why not... whoever is behind that loses nothing, has all to gain
