Tokyo Marui gives us a hint of what’s to come at the 2010 Shizuoka Hobby Show

Tokyo Marui, as they do each year, will be attending the 49th Shizuoka Hobby Show from Thursday, May 13th till Sunday, May 16th 2010 and will be revealing an assortment of new products.

Taking cue from the released teaser images, Tokyo Marui will be expanding the line of High Cycle AEGs to include the M4 series, a Walther PPK (Waffen SS Officer’s model) GBB, black Desert Warrior 4.3, maybe a Larue Tactical (note the SPR-E mount) licensed AEG? Maybe a G18C GBB? (more to the point, a licensed Glock?!).

All will be revealed at the 49th Shizuoka Hobby Show. The venue is not mentioned, but it should be at Twin Messe Shizuoka Convention Center.

WETTI 1911 MEU(SOC) Black and Desert Tan Engraving Refresh

Everything Airsoft

Our friends at God Armed Blog are reporting WETTI is to produce a new limited run of Black and Desert Tan MEU 1911s. But, you ask, the WETTI MEU has been out since the end of last year, what gives? Well, some of the complaints with the previous replicas have been that the authentically reproduced trademarks, some of the most accurate we’ve seen, were occasionally cut too shallow and didn’t do the pistol justice. The refreshed line has much more deeper engravings than the older generation and judging from the pictures, they look great.

New Western Arms GBB releases inc. Norway’s Kongsberg M/1914 and Remington UMC 1911

Just some new Western Arms pistols releases. I don’t usually get excited about new batches of WA 1911’s but there is a couple of models that I’m a big fan of and would seriously consider plonking down some cash for them. First one is the Remington UMC (Union Metallic Cartridge) 1911 which has been reproduced beautifully, right down to the markings.

The "EEC" (indicating Edmund E. Chapman, Major from Aug. 1918 – Jun. 1919 for all Remington UMC pistols) stamp with the "Eagles Head/E28" on the frame. "E" on the trigger guard indicating it’s a lower serial number #15000 or less, and sure enough the serial is "NO8213" on this example. Western Arms has also coated this model with it’s ‘Carbon Black’ finish with simulated wear that just looks great.

Second, the Kongsberg M/1914 available in both ‘Blued’ or ‘Carbon Black’, Norway’s version of the venerable Colt 1911. Production of the Norwegian Model 1914 pistol began at Kongsberg in the summer of 1917, and the first pistols were assembled and tested in December of that year. Made in .45 ACP calibre, the designation was in millimetres as 11.25mm. The original nomenclature of "COLT AUT. PISTOL M/1912," was stamped on the left side of the slide. Between July, 1917 and June, 1919, a total of 500 pistols were fabricated at the Kongsberg factory. Beginning at #1, the serial numbers ran to 500, and the year of manufacture was also included.

These pistols were identical to the Colt Model of 1911, except for a minor detail in the hammer checkering. During the two year period required to produce the first 500 pistols, a complete mass production tooling took place. By 1919, the Kongsberg Arsenal was ready to begin high speed quantity production of the pistol.

This is a replica of one of the final production pistols, serial #753 that exhibits certain design changes from the original 500 pistols. In this version, the slide stop is extended down and back, assuming a tail-like shape to make it easier to operate. This change required a cut-out in the left stock. Although this was the only significant change to the pistol throughout its production, the new version also had a new designation. The left side of the slide is stamped "11.25 m/m AUT. PISTOL M/1914."
