  1. Cool I guess but this is a very bizarre choice of model...

    I guess it's replicating something like this? 

    Feel like anyone who would pay the price of DAS would want the feature of a normal AK given one buys a DAS for its realism, can't figure out who would spend that amount of money for an AK that doesn't have the same ergonomics as your average AK. 


  2. Getting off topic: It seems like a fair ruling given by no definition can you call the central rib of the Alien the slide, but then again it's just a clearly better and more efficient design, if / when more guns adopt this as the norm, maybe they'll change the wording, maybe we'll start calling handgun uppers and lowers instead of frames and slides when that becomes more applicable, and the slide would be the bolt carrier equivalent.

    Right now, we're cool with this:

    In any case, the H9 is already dead irl, which killed the appeal for the airsoft version a bit for me, I guess protip is don't go on forgottenweapons when your company isn't bankrupted yet, because at that point you're kinda asking for some bad juju..

    It's still allowed for Production Division (which is such a joke when your gun costs $5000), just can't be used with an optic without being bumped to open, but then again people who spend $5k on a pistol probably shoots open anyway. 


  4. Judging from airsoft reviewers based in Japan, I think they just get hold of Taiwanese and Chinese products the same way we get hold of Marui products, if there's something cool, airsofters will always find a way to get hold of them. I wouldn't count on TM to reverse engineer anything that G&P/others have done, I'm always baffled by how often companies start from scratch when they probably don't need to. Look at their MWS, you'd think with decade(s?) of the WA based system that has come so far, they could have just gone off that for both realism and ease of R&D, but no, they pretty much made everything from scratch, and when there are millions of great quality AKMs out there with steel body, they decided to release their next-gen (stop on empty) AK based on the (very old) AK47 with minimal compatibility whether it's hop unit or gearbox.  


  5. WE's rate of fire was so low I genuinely thought the test was stupid because he did the VFC in full auto where as he did the WE in semi-auto, then I realised he actually fired the WE in FA as well lol. The VFC's rate of fire is much higher, however there must be some amount of bolt bounce or something because gas was going everywhere and the rate was inconsistent. 


  6. Can't really speak for availability but it was 2700 Hong Kong dollars back when I got it, expensive for aluminium kit but not bad for steel kit, especially given you get irons as well with it. I can ask around if you are interested? They aren't really in shops anymore.

     

    *Oh they work amazingly well. Was at a practical shooting event and people used to hi capa race guns tried it and was amazed by how it stood up to that despite being full steel.
