Simple question this one.

How good are the new Shoei MP44's that are currently being offered? I am seriously considering getting one, but its a heck of a lot of cash to shell out having never seen one in the flesh. Any comments would be much appreciated.

Thanks,

M.

They are very nice indeed. Very good replicas and well worth the money, considering an old spec deactivation will set you back around £2000.

Or get an airsoft AGM MP44 if your allowed by Law. Not really in the same league as a Shoei but a damn fine replica for less than £200 of your fine English pounds.

I stuck my hand in my pocket & bought the Shoei one. Very nice, not as nice as an original, but MUCH less expensive.

I looked at the BB ones, but the finish would have needed a lot of work to look anything like.

General ignorance,
Do you think it could be converted to fire 9mm blanks?
