Redwolf has an M2 Browning HMG on preorder: http://www.redwolfairsoft.com/redwolf/airsoft/AEG_AEP_3D_MMP_3D_MMP_M2_Browning_Steel_Aluminum_AEG_Version.htm

 

For under 2900$! What a bargain!

 

Well...no. Price tag is pretty insane. Especially when you put it in context with the fact that someone who reallyreally want's an M2 on their Humvee, probably already has a scratch-built one.

Holy mother of... yes, the price is quite high, probably too high, but if G&G can sell an MG42 for half that, which is absurd too, well, maybe airsoft is going into the "premium" sector again after the good old clone wars days XD

I'd like to see someone lug this around on foot. You know, like Roadblock does in GI Joe.. :D (And yes, I mean the old comics, not the new movies...)

You'd expect the price comes with the tripod, but no.

Yeah, Killbucket did it better, and he made his plans public too. I guess if you have no ambition and are rich, this is perfect.

Ok, that's ludicrous. On the one hand it's cool that Redwolf are doing some interesting replicas, on the other, the price, or quality, or both seems to suck.

I believe that counts as re-activation....

 

Which carries considerable prison time with it....

UK it's reactivation...Go figure.  Of course this is a country that classifies some airguns as firearms.  People in charge aren't the brightest bunch...

I live in the UK, and judging by the flag under your avatar, you do as well, so I wouldn't recommend trying it here!

And for all that money, they don't even throw in a .50 cal ammo box to stick your M249 magazine in. Also, "Single Piece 3D Printed Gearbox & Inner barrel" what does this even mean? The inner barrel is 3D printed? My first question is how? Also, that doesn't even sound like a good thing once you get past the buzz-wordyness of "3D printed" with all it's "wow, amaze, such future, star trek-tech, wow".

Unpopular as this is likely to be, the way the UK's gun laws are drafted is generally cogent and coherent, and closely reflects the intentions of the legislature. AFAIK (and I don't claim to know everything) there aren't any really obviously stupid things in British gun law like there are hundreds of in, say, American gun law, or in other British laws. A lot of people don't like the laws but that doesn't mean they aren't completely logical.

OFF TOPIC ALERT!!!

Unpopular as this is likely to be, the way the UK's gun laws are drafted is generally cogent and coherent, and closely reflects the intentions of the legislature. AFAIK (and I don't claim to know everything) there aren't any really obviously stupid things in British gun law like there are hundreds of in, say, American gun law, or in other British laws. A lot of people don't like the laws but that doesn't mean they aren't completely logical.

 

 

Having lived most of my life in a "strict" gun control place (Spain) I have to disagree with your estimation.

 

As far as I know due to the actions of a single individual, Thomas Watt Hamilton the social outcry for the deaths of  17 people and a possible insane pedophile in 1996, who had a previous string of problems dating back to the 13th May 1974 but that had never been deprived of his right to legally own guns; led to the known bans by Conservative and Labour governments.

 

As by these bans the UK (not including NI) should be the safest place in the world as it is legally impossible to own guns but despite this the deaths by gunshot in Uk remain in  26 out of an appalling number of 571 homicides by 2016 

https://www.statista.com/statistics/288166/homicide-method-of-killing-in-england-and-wales-uk-by-gender/

 

In the meantime (2016) the number of deaths caused not by firearms (all of them illegal?) but by another kind of chunk of metal whose possession is completely legal is astonishing, 419 confirmed cases

https://roadpeacejusticewatch.wordpress.com/2017/05/19/moj-reports-causing-death-by-driving-convictions-increase-by-over-30-in-2016/

 

Also we should note the knife crime, (also illegal to carry a knife, screwdriver, scissors...) are significant in the year, 188 (less than 1%!!)

https://www.ons.gov.uk/aboutus/transparencyandgovernance/freedomofinformationfoi/knifecrime

 

I am just an european free rider migrant who came here to live on benefits and commit crime or maybe just an asylum seeker serial scammer and future front-page for The Sun Or maybe I am a 40 old lawyer who decided to move to UK and has been working and paying his taxes ever since as until I had a signed contract I did not change my address and even them had to live almost a month in a "fantastic" hostel until finding a pet friendly house to bring here the cat...

I lived 39 years in Spain so maybe I don't understand but if it was logical to ban handguns and deprive all the residents in UK of the possibility to own guns just because of 17(+1) deaths, what should be completely logical to do with 188 by knives and 419 by motor vehicles???

 

My criticism is against that "logical" laws, in Spain we have about 3.6 millions of guns (half of them shotguns, the other handguns rifles...) and by 2016 there were in Spain 370 violent deaths, (32% caused by migrants) and despite being legal to own long guns and handguns, the main weapon were knives (53%) being death by hands 15% almost side by side with guns; the rest by driving, poison, drugs, blunt objects and suicide... (official statistics show just 292 murder cases)

 

The problem in UK is not the tools used for crime and murder, is the society, but it is easier to treat (and be treated) as an immature child and leave no responsibility than to enforce a legal system that can respect the private possession of firearms in the hands of vetted, proven and responsible adults. NO LAW will ever solve the crimes but infantilizing your society you are about to unleash a monster whose actions we will suffer (and are suffering) for too long.

This is way off topic, for which I apologise, but I agree with PureSilver.

I do concede that the handgun ban was a kneejerk reaction, and don't agree with it, but on the whole, our gun laws are logical.

Also, guns are not totally illegal, and neither is carrying knives/screwdrivers/scissors. I say this as a holder of a license to own guns, and a person who generally has a knife on my person all the time I am awake :)
