It could be considered illegal beacause of the Gas cartridges it uses being so similat to the Brocock Sytem, which is Section 5. Still not convinced these are legal yet, they just haven;t shown up on HM Banometer Yet.

It seems the Japanese may have banned them anyway, so it be a moot point...

 

Shame, as it's a nice idea.

 

Cheers.

 

any ideas as to the specifics behind the ban?

materials, design ect.

 

 

 

big fan of the site by the way.

Banned in Japan but they may be able to do an export version. Still think itcould be dodgy here though. Still if they do a Model 29 i'll take the chance.

At 1st i thought it was the cartriges that affected it but "Aitch" informed me its the firing mech not the cartriges what is it about the cartriges that could be illegal? As they are not set off from the rear.

Unfortunately its at home and I'm at Uni so I can't add any pics!

This is my fifth, and currently only Tanaka revolver being held my sweetheart :P. The grip on it is pretty awful (terribly hollow and plasticy), though I guess it's got the Umbrella symbol if that's your bag. Should really get some RS grips for it. Wanna get some more tanakas again, feeling the urge, I sold most of the others at silly prices ages ago. I'm feeling another SAA I think...

 

Decimus.

So lately I've had the burning desire to finally get a revolver, and the Hartford is my first choice after reading around. Could anyone point me in the direction of where I could get one though? Because all I can find are the ugly (In my eyes) little 3-4in ones, and the ginormous limited edition model (I actually would not mind at all having a gun that long, I just don't have $300) Is there a way I can still get one, or should I just settle for a Tanaka SAA/ M29/ M500?

This is my first revolver. The realism of this system seemed so cool that when one of these came up for sale I had to pick it up. Due to college I haven't actually gotten to work this up but Junior was kind enough to act as my middle man and took the pictures as well as chronoing it for me.

The power on 134a (181 FPS (average) w/ KSC .2g's @ 67F) wasn't very good but propane brought it up to a healthy 264 FPS (average) under the same conditions. This certainly isn't Pegasus power but it can be excused since the gun doesn't have much gas capacity. I am currently investigating the possibility of having DBC cut me a custom 6.01TB for this gun so that I can try to squeeze a bit more power out of it.

 

The gun is as close to full metal as I can get it and frankly it is not bad since the only plastic part is the frame of the body. I have Ajax's Black Pearlite grips in the mail for this as well and I think that will complete the look. If anyone has any other suggestions about where I can go with this I would be interested to hear them.

 

As it stands now:

 

Tanaka SAA (Casyopea)

Tanaka Metal Cylinder

 

CAW Metal Outer Barrel

CAW Inner Barrel

 

RS Black Pearlite (Not installed yet)

 

Does anyone know what the inner diameter of the CAW barrel is?

Does anybody have any idea where to get Zeke black metal kit for Tanaka M29 series? I've only seen them at Uncompany but they told black ones are sold out (fortunately I was still able to grab to silver kits). Because Dirty Harry's M29 can't be silver, I'd really like to get one of those 6,5" black kits. There are so many revolver owners here that someone must have one for sale...
