Hopefully its good and help reduce the amount of SMGs in play.

VERY intriguing. The stock looks a little wonky, but that's a price worth paying in my opinion (it's probably fixable too.) Let's hope it works as intended and it should fly off the shelves. Edit: Finally, an AEG manufacturer got the trigger guard right! A milled trigger guard is correct for all of WWII.

My experience with Evike has not generally been good when it comes to pre sales. In some cases you end up saving a lot and in some cases ultimately prices come down to (or in some cases lower) than the pre sale cost. The pre sale items are typically first run iterations with teething problems (although by using the tried and true version 7 that shouldn't be an issue. The real problem is the wide open time frame. They are expecting January deliveries but factors like dock challenges, Customs holds and other variables outside their control means your money can be tied up for a LONG time. Often way beyond the estimate. (BAR! For example). My S&T Springfield was pre ordered and was a pleasant transaction on all counts.
I will no doubt buy this and am thrilled that we have a lower cost option for an M1 Garand. Just four years ago who would have believed we'd have three major manufacturers offering an AEG M1 Garand especially one at $300.00 with real wood! This may (although I won't hold my breath) force a lower price on the ICS and GnG! Perhaps the clip will be interchangeable with the GnG and be more readily available and affordable.
The stock grip area does look goofy doesn't it. Perhaps less so in person?

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.

savoy6: anyone know if anyone still carries the enfield?

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.
