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.

Lenght: 609mm
Weight: 2,400g
Ammo capacity: 1 grenade cartridge (see accessories section for all available types)

WWII Airsoft explained
Airsoft is paintball-type recreational game that is played in indoors (CQB), outdoors and at organized mass events that range from World War II re-enactment to fictional Special Forces operations. The common point of all of these events is the use of airsoft guns and airsoft gun accessories. Airsoft started as a hobby in Japan back in 1980s and is now common in many other countries.

Unlike in paintball BB hit from airsoft gun doesn’t leave a mark, but stings a bit. This allows use of smaller and more lightweight pellets that hurt less and do not spray paint across clothes, buildings, etc. The use of pellets also allows completely different design of the airsoft gun in comparison to paintball guns. Many of our Japanese made airsoft guns are highly detailed products that have incredible attention to the detail. You will be surprised about how well some of these airsoft guns are constructed and our customers have praised our models for their realism as can be seen from our testimonials section.

WWII Airsoft Guns explained
Airsoft guns range from affordable light powered 10-year old toy guns to serious hobbyist custom guns that cost several thousand dollars a piece. They are either spring, gas or electric operated and have special features such as various blowback mechanisms or accuracy barrels.

In most countries owning airsoft gun doesn’t require license or special arrangements.

Tokyo Marui Automatic Electric Guns explained
The Marui Automatic Electric Guns (AEG) are operated by central mechanism called Gearbox and electric motor that derivates from RC-cars. The electric motor uses small 8.4v battery as power source and rotates the gears inside the gearbox that in turn cock the piston back and release it forward in high repeating speed. This creates high rate of fire of about 750rds per minute with muzzle velocity of about 80m/s with 0.20g BB (264 FPS).

The typical accessories you need for airsoft gun
The basic items to have to get started are BBs, power source (battery or gas) and protective goggles or mask. If you use Tokyo Marui Automatic Electric Gun (AEG) you will need battery charger for the batteries unless you already have one. It is also good idea to have battery discharger to maintain battery lifespan by discharging the batteries before re-storaging them after use.

Maintenance and ease of use
Airsoft guns are quite maintenance free and simple to use. Occasional injection of silicon oil will be mostly enough and basic external cleaning after use in outdoors.

Safety
Fundamentally airsoft guns are designed for paintball-type gaming and hence are in safe power levels as long as protective gear is worn. It stings a bit through your clothing when BB hits you. Use of protective facemask is mandatory to protect face and eyes. The pellets are lightweight 6mm and 8mm BBs that weight typically around 0.25g each. Effective range is generally about 20 meters for pistols, 40-50 meters for submachine guns and 50 meters for rifles and machine guns.
