As the title says, I'm interested in starting an Imperial Japanese Army reenactment/ airsoft skirmishing group in the NJ/NY/PA where we would go to airsoft games in our full IJA kit, as well as educating people about the history behind it.
I know that there aren't a lot of IJA airsoft guns on the market right now, and the ones like the Tanaka Type 99 fetch a price for about $1000, can be cost prohibitive. We can used the the S&T Type 38 which is about $250. There are other weapons that we could use as substitutes, or we could use existing ones and dress them up to look like WW2 era Japanese weapons.
If you are interested, please feel free to PM me, or send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Honestly, if traffic down to MD wasn't a nightmare on the weekends, I'd be willing to airsoft in NJ. I don't plan on a IJN impression, but I think I got most of a USMC grunt impression.

If anyone is located in Western Pennsylvania, I think that would be an ideal place for a WWII Airsoft field. I would definitely be willing to bring some Michigan guys out there as either US airborne or IJA, (depending on the scenario) and hopefully you guys further east could come out too? The games that Nate ran were fantastic, but they were unsustainably far to get any interest from out here.

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.
