    The Sword & Gun Law is apparently a bit vague on this. WE pistols are apparently popular in Japan, because shops are prepared to interpret the law as referring only to ferrous metals. Cast iron sounds absolutely bizarre, but on the other hand, large steel MIM parts sounds equally odd, if not more so. Why make the magazines out of what sounds like billet aluminium?!

    Yes. Violent Crime Reduction Act 2006: 38. Meaning of "realistic imitation firearm" (1) In sections 36 and 37 “realistic imitation firearm” means an imitation firearm which— (a) has an appearance that is so realistic as to make it indistinguishable, for all practical purposes, from a real firearm[.] (7) In this section— “real firearm” means— (b) something falling within a description which could be used for identifying, by reference to their appearance, the firearms falling within a category of actual modern firearms which, even though they include firearms of different makes or models (whether existing or discontinued) or both, all have the same or a similar appearance. (8) In subsection (7) “modern firearm” means any firearm other than one the appearance of which would tend to identify it as having a design and mechanism of a sort first dating from before the year 1870. Virtually all airsoft guns in the UK are considered realistic imitation firearms (RIFs), so this is not an unusual classification for gun-shaped-objects at all. Yes, the revolver would likely be legal (see below). The launcher, however, is almost certainly not going to be legal. As @Colin_The+Ferret says, it is chambered for Walther PDP cartridges. The PDP ("Personal Defence Pistol") cartridges are teargas and pepper spray; both are prohibited under s.5(1)(b) of the Firearms Act 1968. There is absolutely no way anything designed to fire, or capable of firing, those cartridges is going to be legal here. The only reason the launcher exists at all is because the revolver itself is evidently designed, even if it's not it's primary function, to fire rubber balls as a less lethal defence weapon. The launcher is evidently expected to provide a less-less-lethal option than the rubber balls.

    Receiver will almost certainly be aluminium, and I wouldn't buy one either for exactly that reason. That VTuber has the highest-pitched voice I've ever heard, although I suppose they have the technology to turn Marui Man and his increasingly alarming haircut into the vocalist from Hamster Dance. Agreed on most things, but the AR-pattern Recoil Shocks are still absolutely peerless, which is why... The ZET system is also interesting, so if it's a GBBR HK416 that could be interesting.

    Volante BBU in an Aluminum Slide on Green Gas?

    I haven't tried this with the 1911 version of the Stratos. However, I have done this with the Glock Stratos, with a PGC slide and outer barrel set. I've tried it with both green gas (sensible) and CO2 (absolutely violent). The Glock version of the Stratos ships with recoil buffers, and I fitted them - without them, with CO2 the PGC slide was hitting the front chassis with such force it was deforming the slide at the impact points. I don't believe the 1911 version ships with recoil buffers - or at least, mine didn't. The gun I was going to use mine in (it doesn't fit) is a Mafioso Airsoft Kimber LAPD SWAT TLE II, which is full steel. That's already plenty violent with CO2, and my tech fitted a CowCow RM1, a telescopic guide rod with a very stiff secondary spring to help dampen the last ~5mm of slide travel. I'd definitely recommend one of those. I haven't ground any bits off anything Glock or 1911 related and I haven't experienced any damage from anything related to the outer barrel, even though the Kimber is far more violent with CO2 than it would be with a Stratos and green gas. However: This I absolutely agree with; my Kimber bent its first slide stop just like this. That slide stop was steel, to give you some idea of the force involved. The RM1 has prevented any further damage.

    TM are teasing three new products on their site. They'll be unveiled on the 17th of July in an online presentation, because coronavirus, hosted by a virtual YouTube personality in the form of a busty anime redhead in fatigues, because Japan. Owing to the intense creepiness of the scarred sort-of-3D VTuber I cannot in good conscience recommend anyone watch the actual product launch, so here are the teasers. Number one is an AKM's front sight. This is almost certainly a GBBR companion to the MWS. Number two is a flat-top AR's charging handle. Accompanying this is text Google translates as "Introducing the next-generation new products that will be added to the lineup in detail!", so maybe a NGRS release of some sort, although it's hard to think of a flat-top NGRS AR that would be legitimately interesting. A HK416 GBBR based on the MWS could be a possibility. Number three might be a P320 beavertail. Accompanying this is text Google translates as "*The product that appears is under development." so I expect we'll see a resin cast, or maybe a bit further on from a resin cast.

    Beautiful. Out of interest, could you try (or have you tried) fitting the GHK magazine internals into a RS shell? I'm losing hope on GHK ever making translucent shells and am contemplating trying to fit a RS one. The BB track could be a separate issue if the reservoir fits inside the Steyr shell.

    LCP's an odd choice - I would have thought the Detonics and G26 kind of bracketed that already - but I'm down. Fingers crossed airsoft manufacturers can weather months of people not being able to play.
