If this gun sells well then I'm sure they'll put out some more ww2 products.

Oh I bloody hope so, hopefully they're not too expensive though. Fingers crossed their Enfield's will get cloned if they do cost a ridiculous amount, tbh I'm surprised their MG34 hasn't been yet.

Some images of the prototype posted on one Russian website. Not actual though, as it's said that RWA decided to move off from VSR-10 components to improve historical accuracy. Only VSR main spring and hop-up buckle will fit.

It does look good but...

You know what really grinds my gears? Airsoft manufacturers who use hex bolts for historical guns. Especially when the rest of the work is good!

I was going to say just the same thing. Be it uniforms, kit or weapons, when the item is historical in nature I don't understand why a little extra research and effort in getting it correct is that difficult. It's the apparent laziness in research that gets me, the post war trigger groups fitted to M1 Garand replicas being a prime example.

A shame it's only got the simplified late pattern rear sight too.

The wee inaccuracies with bolts, etc, seems to suggest it's squarely aimed at the airsoft market, rather than hardcore reenactors, who'd scoff at such wild liberties. :giggle:

I'm honestly not bothered in the slightest. The simplified rear sights are more than enough for airsoft, but my biggest worry remains cost. Not of the gun, necessarily, but the magazines.

I'm happy to spend a bit more on a one-off gun, but extortionate and limited magazines will kill it's skirmish practicality dead.

EDIT: Especially if everyone on here is fighting over them! :rofl:

Maybe one could create a 3d printed alternative...

I'm in two minds about this gun. I have a vsr and was going to get my own lee enfield vsr built for me or I could wait till this rwa rifle is out. What do I do?

Not using the VSR has killed it in my eyes.
The magazine placement/reloading process will kill it as a skirmishable weapon.

With regard to the sights, as far as I know these are legitimate Lee Enfield 'Battle' sights I believe they were fitted to late manufacture guns to allow cheaper and easier manufacture. For the record I have one of these sights which I'm planning to fit to a Lee Enfield conversion, if I ever get round to doing it.

Just found this, a Lee Enfield fitted with these sights; https://www.liveauctioneers.com/item/12 ... i-303-brit
