New Year Promise from Marushin

Towards the end of last month, even last year, I posted an item about the release of an airsoft replica of the M3A1 'Grease Gun'. Well, a WW2 airsoft acquaintance put me on to this but as things stand at the moment there's not an awful lot to say

Apparently, Marushin are set to release four new models of 6mm BB WW2 guns. They are posted on their website, together with the legend 'New release expected soon! Please stay tuned'

The iconic 'Broomhandle' Mauser 712

The Mauser Kar98 will most likely be a shell ejecting bolt loader like its 8mm cousin

The M1 and M2 carbines. There is also a reference on the site to a 6mm version of the M1 Garand

All of these guns are, of course, already available as 8mm BB gas blow back or shell ejecting shooters, but the idea that they will soon be available in 6mm is extremely appealing. I will certainly be 'staying tuned' over the next few weeks and months and do my best to keep you posted. In the meantime, if anyone knows any more, please feel free to post a comment

Over and out
