Type 89 review

Right here:

http://www.digitalwastelands.com/con...=136&Itemid=29

One is already for sale on ebay (US, shipped from hong kong), so I hope to see some of these here ina couple of months, if not less!

Also here: http://www.airsoftarmoury.co.uk/prod...oducts_id=2071

I think this really sets a new standard for the world famous, most reliable brand that used to lack metal receivers... Too bad it doesnt say anything about the 3 round burst.

Too bad the review is so short...

Cheers!
Alex

Ditto. There are so many damn brands and variants of the AR in airsoft. Luckly lately alot of AK varians are finally coming out (AK, AKS, AK74, AKS74, AK74M, AKS74U, AK103, AK104, RPK), for a while we were just stuck with classic gas AKs, crappy springers, and the TM AK, AKS, and the unrealistic AKBeta.
Long live the Kalashnikov

Cheers!

I guess the big price tag + stick battery isn't too attractive to most.

Stick batteries aren't such a critical problem since the advent of Intellect cells and more recently, GP cells. I'm surprised that people aren't snatching them up for the originality and OMFG-TM-FMU factors.

The fact that the stock holds a spare stick battery lends itself to an interesting modification to wire up two stick batteries in parallel for dual the capacity and increased performance. Hmm....

Nickel chemistries don't lend themselves well to parallel arrangements, but LiOn does. MuHHuuHhahHAAa.

According to the review, you can't fit a large 8.4 because the stock is too short, not narrow as was originally believed. I'm betting it's totally possible to make a battery that'll fit with a creative configuration of A or 2/3SC cells.

I'm going to line the stock with nickel foil and fill it with battery acid to make the WHOLE stock a battery!

It looks like there's enough space to distribute a decent amount of cells throughout the stock and gun.
