Red Fire "Tanaka Clone" Kar98K - Review

Postby ww2stu » Tue Apr 09, 2013 6:53 pm

New Tanaka style Kar98K. (Mags are compatable) and it uses a VSR hop up so no worries about getting one of the rare Best Gun upgrade parts.

Probably retail at around £250 looking at their prices on their current Mosin's. Maybe a worth while investment.....

Give me a big enough hammer and a place to stand and I could fix the world.
i'll kill a man in a fair fight or if i think he's going to start a fair fight or over a woman or.......
a problem shared is a problem halved ,but an advantage shared is no advantage at all
if a job's not worth doing then its certainly not worth doing well

Tanaka compatible magazines would be lovely; I've been looking for magazines for years. :oops:

Yes it is and with postage to the uk it's £200. If its a halfway decent gun that's a good price for a tanaka clone kar98

Hi guys recently I was on facebook, was going to check redfire page and it isn’t there anymore anyone knows what happened? I asked them about spare parts one time they answer really fast and very polite and now they are gone :(

Pd: I was going to make a new post but wasn’t sure if it belonged to general or to this section so I just asked :$

Not sure Waffman but PPS who do the American "Matrix" series of guns like the newly made Enfield Rfile have a website which I have just found. With a C02 Kar 98?

a G&G rip off or a tanaka with CO2 bulbs?
