I reckon this will be over £500 by the time it reaches the UK. Think I`d rather knock up a lookalike from the trusty old VSR.

If the performance is the same as a Tanaka k98, I'll happily pay the same price.

I agree with ZB. Much depends on its performance. It certainly looks great but I'd rather have a gun I can use.
Regards,

Ralph

I`m not sure if that`s comparable, the RWA gun is a springer not gas.

I think if it functions reliably and can be repaired and up/downgraded with off the shelf parts and the mags are reasonably priced, it'll be worth the same as a Tanaka, although it is an awful lot for an airsoft gun. If it's just a pretty wall hanger like the KTW, then no.

Being spring it should be more useful than a gas gun to people in cooler climes such as ours anyway, as long as it's not complete crap.

The fact that they decided to not use the VSR as a base has lowered my hopes for it though, but at least it's still spring. If it's decent and a fair price I really hope they follow it up with a No1 Mk3.

In that if its around £500 and can accurately hit to 60m plus, then I'm happy. I don't care if it's spring or gas, I just want a good level of finish and consistency.
What I won't do is be one of the first to get one. I'll wait until someone on here buys one and wait until they have tried it out and posted their results. You know there are always those that want to be the first to own one, I'll wait and find out what they think. If there are any faults with the finished product, you know it will be ripped apart on here :wink:

After experimenting with my VSR/SMLE build I have concluded the following:
If it has the standard VSR bolt travel, and the bolt is located in the realistic location, it will be very uncomfortable to cock with the rifle shouldered.
