Mystery gas-powered Blaser

Recommended Posts

I found this weird thing on Tiger111:

It's pretty expensive, particularly compared to the KA springer, but looks well-made, with full trades, fluted barrel and more knobbles on the stock than you require. And I don't recall ever hearing of this one.

King Arms does make this exact model in Gas too. However, it doesn't seem much different from the King Arms at all, but is less expensive (compared to MSRP price, not Evike's crazy pricing)

Manufacturer MIT? Can't see any real difference in appearance

Attack of the China clones? Made by known suspect under other brand name ?

RC, Evike actually hasn't done that for quite some time. When I worked at shops starting from 2010, we always struggled to compete with Evike's pricing.

 

But I do also wonder how the KA gas R93 is. It's obviously using the tanaka system, so it should be ok at least.

Looks better than the KA springer, and the price of that one is tanking fiercely on Ebay. According to Google, prices for a spring KA Blaser start from $139 on Ebay, and stores are cutting prices of it as well.

It's not a bad design though. And there's 2 levels of quality in the Springer. One has the slight rotation to the bolt handle and has nicer externals, the other is just a handle connected to the cylinder (the bolt carrier just being part of the receiver).

It's pretty easy to upgrade and light weight too.

 

It's only not popular because people apparently don't like the way they look.

Yeah, I had one for a while, but then ended up being able to build a better AEG and didn't want to hold onto it.

They are really nice guns. I'd rather one of these than a VSR if I ever get into spring rifles again.

The hop-up on the upgraded one I had was terrible. Wouldn't seal air for nothing. Which is a shame, because other than that it had potential to eat a VSR for breakfast.

Could it be the same gun at the first place?

 

MIT is sometimes referred as Made in Taiwan

King Arms moved to TW few years back

 

 

 

Not really related, just a wild guess: Shop gets upset(mad) at certain brands and censors their names.

Maybe, but it'd be weird considering that the springer is listed as King Arms.

 

But then, the same shop claims that it's Gun Heaven that makes the M1887 replica, so...
