January 7th-8th, 2006
Unlike most people I wasn’t excited about what Christmas or New Years would bring but the fore coming Blackhole Show here in Tokyo would show case to help us usher in the new year, Alas I was a little disappointed with the turn out of trade stands that were there but there was the usual bargains to be had, like wooden stocks for the M14 going at ¥4,000 a piece! (£19.00GBP) I’m also sorry to say that Maruzen decided not to show up so any further news on the MP7 will have to wait until the huge event in Shizoka during May.
But never fear fellow Airsoft fans Tokyo Marui was there and they did bring along some of their much anticipated toys, YES the MP7 and we are not talking the clay model at the last show but their fully working preproduction model! Yet again FarEast and Arnies Airsoft bring you the cutting edge news first, It looks like the MP7 will be available the beginning of Summer 2006, yep you heard me right this summer guys, no waiting around 2 years for the model to hit the shelves!!!!
The gun itself is of a very, very high quality and it looks like with the success of the M14 Tokyo Marui are continuing to produce guns of a higher standard and realism with a slightly higher price tag. (No info of price range yet) As you can see the TM MP7 is sporting FULL range of logos and licensing so even the most ardent geardo while find it hard to find fault in this weapon.
Also on show TM had their new SIG PRO 2340.
