 KOKUSAI model M 700 spring piston bolt action (a cautionary tale)

 So I found this on Ebay, from a seller I have bought way too much stuff from.

I was happy to win the bid, and eagerly waited the brown truck honking his horn in my driveway.

As always with this seller, it was very well packed in a sturdy box.

Now come's the bad news.

Due to it's age, and the fact that 98% of the unit is plastic, portions of this beauty did not survive transit.

The barrel broke off at the chamber, just past the forend and one half of the "magazine", was just dust in the bottom of the box.

I dont believe when these were produced in the 80's, much thought was given to longevity, or that in the far future of 2022, someone would be still shipping them cross country!

If you are a aficionado of ancient airsoft, do take this into account if you feel the need to buy one online. 

This all being said, I am still thrilled to have this in my small collection

(about 600 or so)

I will do a review on it with some pic's of how it stands now, soon.

I have debated into turning it into a copy of the

 "Silent Sniper System"

 if I can not find another magazine for it

(even though it is not a Winchester model 70)

Rare and odd Vietnam sniper rifle : guns

This is the listing as posted on Ebay.
"This auction is for a Beautiful and extremely rare in this Country  KOKUSAI model M 700 spring piston bolt action with a tubular magazine air soft replica made in Japan.The rifle is made of mostly ABS plastic except for the internal parts which are metal.The stock is made of a beautiful wood imitation plastic and it has a few nicks on it.The gun is complete and working fine but one flaw is the magazine holder .Apparently the previous owner dropped the magazine cover or holder and one of the small plastic legs broke off.They repaired this with some kind of glue but did not do a good job.
The rifle is absolutely gorgeous and very heavy and well made.I don’t have any literature on this particular gun and there is limited information on the internet.This is a very rare and highly collectible piece but I have to sell it AS IS."

 Great article on the Remington 700 series airsoft guns made in the past

Strange, if true

 In what may be a bizarre case of mistaken identity, the Russian FSB has killed a group of Russian people it claims are pro-Ukrainian saboteurs – 

but who reportedly appear to be Airsoft enthusiasts who were engaged in live-action roleplay of the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. video games.

A Press Release from KRYTAC

KRYTAC makes a great gun,

 (I have heard, I do not own any of thier product)

I want to commend them on picking to reproduce an "odd" gun to bring to market.

I love oddball, weird, obscure, stupid, failed, ungainly, bizarre and "out there" Firearms.

I have a small collection of them in RS, and a large amount of them in Airsoft.

I will be saving my pennies and picking up alum cans off the highway so I can get one of these when they come out.

When I do, I might actuality write a review. 




SilencerCo Releases Rights for KRYTAC to Develop Exclusive Maxim 9 Airsoft Pistol

West Valley City, UT — SilencerCo is pleased to announce that an airsoft version of their iconic Maxim 9 integrally suppressed pistol will be released by KRYTAC®. The two companies have entered into an exclusive licensing agreement, giving KRYTAC® the rights to develop their first gas-powered airsoft gun as a Maxim 9 replica. These airsoft Maxim’s will be available through KRYTAC’s distribution network, which includes the United States, Europe, Asia and South America.

The KRYTAC® Maxim® 9 is constructed of a reinforced polymer frame with an anodized aluminum slide and baffles. The baffles are modular, allowing for the versatility of both a short configuration (240mm) and long configuration (275mm). Under the baffles, there are three keymod cutouts where a short rail section can be mounted. The fixed barrel is threaded to accept a special version of the famed Acetech Bifrost airsoft tracer unit, designed specifically for the KRYTAC® Maxim® 9.

The KRYTAC® Maxim® 9 is also micro dot optics ready with provisions for KRYTAC’s new multi-footprint mounting plate, accommodating for RMR®, RMR®cc, and RMS footprint optics. It can be fired in semi-auto or full-auto, and is fed through a lightweight, aluminum, 24-round capacity magazine.

“SilencerCo’s Maxim 9 was the world’s first integrally suppressed 9mm pistol that is holster-able and hearing safe with 9mm ammunition,” said SilencerCo Product Manager, Andrew Herbst. “It’s a unique product that bridges the gap between carrying a short and concealable pistol and staying hearing-safe. We are excited to now be able to share this innovative product with the airsoft community!”

Offering and Availability

The standard version of the KRYTAC® Maxim® 9 is offered in the short configuration, with either a green gas or CO2 magazine. Accessories sold separately include the Maxim® 9 Tracer and Extended Baffles Kit, Multi-footprint Optics Plate, Holster, and short keymod rail section. The Maxim® 9 Standard, Tracer and Extension Kit, Muti-footprint Optics Plate, and keymod rail section are scheduled for delivery by November 2022.

The KRYTAC® Maxim® 9 Deployment Pack will consist of the standard configuration pistol, with one green gas and one CO2 magazine, including all Maxim 9 accessories in a custom carry case with foam for the Maxim® 9 and all accessories. The MAXIM® 9 Deployment Pack is scheduled for delivery by December 2022.

A Great "Airsoft History" resource.

Thank the Gods that "Arnies Airsoft' 

was able to save this priceless artifact of airsoft history. 

Too much of the "old Stuff" on Airsoft,

 has dropped off the web, more than likely gone forever

This is a rare trove of information from a bygone era!

Good Job "Arnie" 

We need to do dinner again, 

sometime in this decade!

Marushin, 1911A1, U.S. Army model.... Telephone????????????

Now this is an odd one,

It is an Ebay listing, and priced way beyond my bank account,

 but I had to share it.

No real info that I can find on when, where or who made it.

Listing said that the magazine was removable and had a mini speaker inside it.

Slide operated and hammer cocked.

From the looks of the cradle adapter, it was not a "one off"

 If anyone has any more info on this weird duck, please let me know.
