I've just bought a Tanaka Kar98k which should arrive tomorrow some time. I managed to have a play with it on Sunday before making my decision which is always welcome.
I had a few questions so thought fellow WW2 airsofters would be the best people to ask.
To those of you who own or have used one, what is your opinion on it?
Does anyone know if the Redfire/PPS clone magazines are compatible with the Tanaka?
Has anyone got any ideas regarding a ZF-39 scope setup? I'm not a fan of long eye relief/pistol scopes so having it at the rear appeals greatly. However the thought of drilling/tapping the receiver seems like unnecessary butchery in my eyes...
The Tanaka Kar 98 is one of the few gas guns that I have consistently heard good things about. How good the follow up clones are is open to debate. I have handled and fired the Tanaka and known several people who skirmished with them with good results. Unfortunately I have no first or second hand experience with any of the gas follow ups.
As for whether the clone magazines are compatible I THINK the answer is no?

Dracul: It looks like it lost a lot of steam and I now feel bad for randomly dropping off.

stuka: I mean it's not your fault. It is interesting though that things are falling off as we are finally getting our ww2 guns with the type 38/96 and the enfield as well as it recieving a new loading system, it's kind of unfortunate

Dracul: I don't know, maybe its because all the guns are becoming available, there is a decreasing need for the forums.

Dracul: Most of the talk was about making guns, as all the uniform info was already out there, but now the weapons are out there and are usually decent quality.

stuka: well the forum is and should still be useful for updates on guns, creating groups/events and building kits

Cpl. Hicks: I haven't been here in years, but I'm glad to see this forum is still kicking! So much great info on here.

Dracul: I think Redwolf has a Enfield. If not or not longer, then not until G&G releases theirs. The old gas Iron Airsoft brand SMLE isn't carried by anyone anymore and was such piece of crap. Not worth trying to track one down.
