I've just been browsing the net a bit and found a gunshop in New Zealand selling a CO2 powered shell ejecting Garand. It looks okay, but the photos are really small, so it's difficult to see too much.

I'm rather intrigued by the CO2 blowback system, sounds like an interesting idea. It's made in Japan, but by whom I've no idea! Anyone have any ideas? :?:

It must be quite solid as it's a bit heavier than the real thing at 6.2kgs. It's also rather expensive as it costs about 1200 GBP!! :shock:

Hey Joe, I believe it is an old replica, the reason they have it in stock is due to the high price, Guncity sell items 3-4 time higher than true market value, they end up having stock for years longer than other places due to this, great if you want to pay the price they charge.

Thanks for that Chris, that sounds very likely indeed.
