Type 89 Knee Mortar [Gas operated launcher] 

Type 89 Knee Mortar [Gas operated launcher]
SOLD OUT

Made in Japan
Operating principle: Gas powered replica
Ammunition: 40mm slug gas grenades or 40mm BB firing gas grenades

Type 89 was a simple grenade thrower used by the Impreial Japanese Army infantry. It has a short rifled barrel with an adjustable threaded rod inside. Always fired at an angle of 45 degrees, the range of the projectile was adjusted by moving the rod inside the barrel, thus altering the space inside for combustion. The bottom has a small curved plate to dig into the ground. The Japanese called it a "Leg Mortar" as it was carried strapped to the leg, but a mis-translation in Allied reports led to the term "knee mortar" and the belief that it was fired holding the curved plate against the thigh.

Real weapon technical details:
Weight of grenade 1.43 lb
Max range 700 yards
Weight of mortar 10.05 lb

This mass manufactured replica uses 40mm slug "grenades" that are gas powered and reusable. The slugs can be fired with real knee mortar technique as they will fly in arch and drop to the target. It can also take 40mm CAW MOSCART gas grenades that fire BBs, but their use will require unrealistic firing technique.

Replica dust cover is included with the launcher. More information

Type 99 Light Machine Gun [Replica automatic electric airsoft gun] 

Type 99 Light Machine Gun [Replica automatic electric airsoft gun]
Made in Japan
Operating principle: Automatic electric airsoft gun
Note about availability: Special order only - very limited production (only several dozen will be manufactured)

This is the first ever production of Type 99 LMG replica and it is based on the earlier Type 96 LMG replica that was released on April 2009.

HISTORIC BACKGROUND

The Japanese Type 99 LMG. which was chambered on more powerful 7.7mm cartridge, was in production from 1939 until end of the war and although intended to replace the older 6.5mm chambered Type 96 LMGs, the Type 99 served alongside Type 96 until end of the war.The Type 99 was basically the same design as the Type 96 light machine gun, and had a number of parts in common. However, it dispensed with the oiler and had better primary extraction, increasing reliability over its predecessors. Early models had a mono-pod at the stock and a flash suppressor on the muzzle, which was screwed onto a threaded portion of the gun barrel (both of these features have been painfully recreated into this replica model). A top-mounted curved detachable box magazine held 30 rounds, and the finned gun barrel could be rapidly changed to avoid overheating.

The Type 99 had a blade front sight and a leaf rear sight, with graduations from 200 to 1,500 meters, with a wind adjustment. A standard infantry bayonet could be attached to the gas block below the barrel (standard IJA replica bayonet can be also attached to this Type 99 replica - ask us for replica bayonet availability).

REPLICA FEATURES

The main features of this Type 99 LMG replica are the carefully replicated muzzle, stock with monopod, barrel fins, functional cocking handle & sights and a improved magazine design. Furthermore, authentic stampings, that include imperial chrysanthemum insignia, have been added to the receiver and each model comes with unique serial number. Only several dozen will be made of this model.

This replica automatic electric airsoft gun represents the most detailed Type 96 replica ever manufactured. Made by experienced Japanese factory this Type 96 replica is no "garage" custom production, but a mass produced replica of high quality and well replicated details.

The model is made almost entirely from real metal and wood with following part composition:

Type 100 Submachine gun, Early War (3rd edition) [Replica non-firing model gun] 

Type 100 Submachine gun, Early War (3rd edition) [Replica non-firing model gun]
Made in Japan
Operating principle: Non-firing model gun
Availability: Special order only.

New 2009 release! Early production version of the Type 100 SMG. Designed and built by the Nambu Arms Manufacturing Company, the Type 100 was a robust, if unremarkable, submachine gun that mimicked the famous Bergmann MP18 submachine gun in many ways. First samples were delivered to the Imperial Army in 1942 and in total some 30,000 were manufactured. The early production models displayed higher quality and "luxury" items such as bipod. Later production models were less refined as war situation demanded faster production and less use of material resources.

Use of bipod is very unique for this Japanese submachine gun and this interesting feature has been faithfully replicated in this model gun. Also, long range sights have been replicated. This early war model doesn’t not have a flash hider yet as it was introduced only in the later models. The shape of the stock is different around the cartridge ejecting area and there are grooves so that the bipod can be folded.

Furthermore the stocks are either made from beech wood or very rare ogre walnut wood. You can choose your preferred color for the ogre walnut stocks. There is aged look dark colour or a more lighter colour which looks very much like the type that was used by the Japanese army. There aren’t many dark coloured types available so please order quickly. All three types are under limited production.

This rare model gun faithfully replicates the early production Type 100 submachine gun and is of museum display quality. Full metal and wood construction. Fully functioning non-firing replica model gun.
