Operating principle: Cap firing model gun
Ammunition: 9mm PFC cartridges and model gun caps
Availability: In stock, used, excellent condition

Sten submachine guns were developed in rush for the British armed forces who were lacking submachine gun at the beginning of World War II. It's design is fundamentally based on German MP28/II and MP38 machine pistols. The need to produce large number of submachine guns in reasonable price and in shortest possible time affected all design features of Sten submachine guns and ultimately caused the unique, tubular appearance of Sten. Despite it's unusual looks Sten was a effective and lethal weapon system. Sten Mark II was the most numerous of all of Sten series and saw action not only with Commonwealth forces, but with resistance figthers across Europe who came to value it's small size and ease of disassembly and transportation.

You are viewing metal made fully functional 1:1 size model gun replica of Sten Mark II. Using 9mm PFC rounds it can fire in full automatic and can be field stripped in similar fashion as the real Sten.

The Winchester Model 1897 was a pump action shotgun designed by John Browning for the Winchester arms company just in time for 20th century. M1897 Trench Shotgun would go on to serve US armed forces for more than half of the century including two World Wars.

His new shotgun design took advantage of developing smokeless ammunition and came in multiple configurations. M1897 Trench Gun had a special heat shield grip that was used in trenches to prevent the weapon from being damage during and between shots. Five rounds were stored in the tubular magazine under the barrel, with one round in the chamber itself. Some shotguns had a special bayonet adapter, which could attach a standard-issue bayonet.

Tanaka Works U.S. M1897 Trench Shotgun is a limited edition model gun that is no longer made. Today it is collectible and hard-to-come-by. The real U.S. M1897 Trench Shotgun was used in both WWI and WWII. As the name indicates it was originally taken into service as a close-range weapon for WWI trench warfare. It remained in service with US Army and USMC throughout the WWII and is easily distinquishable for it's bayonet attachment and air cooling holes.

Comes with six 12 gauge Tanaka replica shotgun cartridges, original packaging and replica M1897 Trench Shotgun bayonet. The bayonet seen in photos is attachable. Real bayonet can be used as well.

This replica M1897 Trench Shotgun functions exactly like the real U.S. M1897 and has genuine wood stock and foregrips. Pump action mechanism and operating sound is excellent.

Mauser Kar 98k [Airsoft Gas Rifle]

Made in Japan
Operating principle: Gas powered bolt-action
Ammunition: 6mm BB
Availability: Next production complete on mid-March. Reservations are accepted.
Image gallery: Yes

Mauser Karabiner 98k was the backbone of German Wehrmacht and Waffen-SS during World War II. It was a battle tested rifle that could not be fully replaced at any stage of the war despite the new found status of machine pistols, experiments with semiautomatic rifles and the introduction of world's first assault rifle (MP44). Millions were manufactured in Germany, other Axis countries and occupied territories by the end of the war.

Tanaka's Kar 98k is widely regarded as the best airsoft Kar 98k there is thanks to its heavy-duty (almost model gun like) exterior finish and high power. The muzzle velocity is about 100m/s with regular gas, but can reach 120m/s with green gas.

In Tanaka's Kar 98k airsoft version there are lot of manufacturing and German eagle markings around the gun as you can see from our image gallery.

The magazine works differently from Marushin's Kar 98k as there is detachable magazine that is released with a release catch (located in trigger guard just behind the trigger). Gas tank is located inside tha magazine.

The Tanaka Kar 98k is great for gaming purposes thanks to its advantegous shooting performance and is favorite among airsoft WWII fans.

This is the latest Kar 98k variant from Tanaka, the G-version.
