Hi there from New Zealand, I have been involved in Airsoft in NZ since 2008 and currently run one of the clubs in our capital Wellington. I have done WW2 re-enactment at airshows and so on but have just started to do WW2 Airsoft. I currently re-enact the 22nd (motor) Battalion 2NZEF.

Its slowly building, it tends to flow from those of us that get into re-enacting then decide to combine that with airsoft. I am currently working on a No4Mk1 Enfield and may look at a sten now Full Auto weapons are no longer illegal in N.Z. The biggest problem is those of us here are spread between the 2 Islands so getting together can be a bit hard as there is about 20 of us across the country. Hopefully we pull a decent game together this year!
Great to hear NZ relaxed the ban on full auto airsoft guns which always stuck me as quite silly. I sold a couple of M1 Garands which I had converted from M14 into NZ but had to insure that the selector switch was completely absent and all paperwork and owners manual ect. Clearly emphasized that they were exclusively semi auto. I also sold an Enfield SMLE to a customer there. Come to think of it I sold a 30 Cal there as well but with all the airsoft guts pulled out because of your previous ban.

law changed last year and we have probably bought out Asia's supply of M249's (C9) and M60 machine guns! There is a .30 cal running around in Auckland but was built buy a guy from up there. Also a few MG's of an Axis variety too which have snuck into the mix!
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.
