Tanaka's Cassiopeia voluntary recall.

Recommended Posts

Yes, it seems like Tanaka are recalling all their Cassiopeia revolvers for a product upgrade. Well, if you want to send it back at least.

Seemed like such a good idea, it's just gone from bad to worse for them. I hope they don't give up trying to make this work.

 

Also, they mentioned numerous problems with the gun. Anyone had any problems with theirs? I'm curious now. Anyone got a working gun, they won't be sending back?

I think that I'll just hang onto mine. My guess is that they are re-calling them so that they can be destroyed. Really a shame since it is an awesome system.

 

On a more comical note...

 

Build a better future to both continue consideration is a vegetarian

 

...is rather amusing.

Or perhaps to rebuild/refurbush for export outside of Japan?

Tanaka is just trying to cover their legal asses. The Cassiopeia is fine. Don't give in to the Japanese government's scare mongering / knee jerk reaction to a situation that has been ridiculously blown out of proportion. Most likely because of this, in years to come, the Cassiopeia will be a highly sought after collector's item as the market will have been dried up and the supply has been cut.

 

The situation is also a classic example of some airsofter publicly making outlandish suggestions about unlikely scenarios that could lead to a persons harm, and the resulting equally idiotic government reaction by running with that BS speculation and ruining a perfectly fine product. Like many have said, you never know who from the government might be anonymously roaming the various airsoft forums out there. We wouldn't want to give them more ammunition to help them take away our beloved hobby.

 

You'll more likely find harm caused by bludgeoning/pistol whipping than whatever the foolish OP suggested that started all this. Heck, I could go and do that with a stick. "Alert! All sticks must now be recalled. Please send those in too." Absolute idiocy.

Total idiocy on the part of the Japanese police, but all stupidity aside...

I agree completely! :mrt:

Im glad I got mine when I did. :)

 

Shame, I was hoping to get my hands on other models using the Casyopea system. Like a silver Colt SAA!

Ah, net translators are funny. When i look at airsoft sites through google translator it translates ガン (gun, said "gan") as the same as 癌 (cancer, said "gan")

so theres lots of notices for hand cancers and electric cancers and how amazing they are.

 

On another note.. boo and hiss to the silly law makers.

I also agree that these might become desirable because they were banned and possibly even worth more than they originally were (Doubt that though. When has that ever happened with airsoft?). Actually, I suggested it first, and am now greatly offended.

 

Ha, just kidding. :P

 

 

 

 

To be fair, I don't really think that any hating on this guy that suggested these can be converted to use gunpowder (if those were his words, realistically if he even exists) isn't really cool. People say things as a joke or things they don't mean all the time. "Big Brother" watching you isn't really a good reason to not say stuff that might be interpreted in a different way than it was intended (which could be pretty much everything). It was a kind of stupid thing to say, but mostly because of its effect.

Redwolf (probably in an attempt to drum up sales) posted this ammendment to their Cassiopeia listing:

 

NOVEMBER 2008 NEWS UPDATE:

Japanese police have deemed this model as illegal. Tanaka has been forced to stop production of this model immediately. As a result, this has immediately become a collector's piece and will surely appreciate in value. See the news here

Yeah, they also said that about the Marushin Kar98k.

 

 

It could be modified to fire real bullets. Pow pow.

Maybe some dude was on a payphone and someone from the Japanese Government overheard him saying he could get one to fire real ammo? :lol:
