Showguns have made a striker 12


Recommended Posts

Sent an email a week ago to ask the status.

Was assured it would be shipped by the 24th.

Sent an email yesterday asking where it is.

No reply.

Edit: Teammate reports he just got a ship notification and tracking #. Which is odd, because I ordered two hours before him. Crossing my fingers.

Here's the gun after dyeing the furniture. I've got a bunch more pics in the review I just posted.

welp, this is the friend of the manufacturers. Bad news is that the studio that makes this product is no longer in production due to the stricter laws in China. The orange version that most of you hav

I got it, my dudes. Going to post up a review in the gas rifles section.

Both of us have tracking numbers, but both still show pre-shipment. No response to our emails, just suddenly ship notifications showed up.

Related, it turns out that Armson is still around (!) and still selling (!!!) occluded-eye gunsights for the Striker.

Here's an example of one in use. Technically this is on a Protecta so not an 'actual' Striker / Street Sweeper, but the mounting is the same:

Armson scope wont work, the screws need to be mounted from the bottom side of the groove. However, the drum is not removable on mine (i dont know, maybe thats a anti-modification feature). Without removing the drum, you cant screw in the armson.

Hmm, that's annoying; I might have to go with my original plan of just bodging a rail on there. Funny thing is, every time I've seen the Striker in a videogame, it's had a rail on top for sights or optics. But as far as I can tell, that was never a real thing, since the Striker/Street Sweeper disappeared off the market long before rails became popular.

Anyways, my tracking number now shows that the package has been accepted by Hong Kong Post, so it seems it's actually on the way.

I have faith in your ability to remove the drum, that sight is too cool not to use.

We'll see. I found a parts diagram in a review, and it looks like the drum should be removable (albeit with a lot of effort).

I can't actually use OEGs with any kind of effectiveness thanks to some eye surgery a while back, so it'd be strictly for looks anyways. But either way I'll probably want to get the drum out to work on the barrel/cylinder interface seal and/or fit a metal barrel.

Not going to lie, I didn't think these would ever materialize but I'm happy they have.  Even if there's only a very limited amount out there.  Very cool indeed.

X-Force has sold a lot of them to non-Australians it seems, and are currently swamped by unexpected demand. However, the first outbound package was stopped by Australian Customs, so they're trying to rectify the situation so they can export. I've succeeded in producing replacement metal barrels but most of the people who expressed interest are waiting to see if they can actually get the Strikers they ordered first, which is understandable.
