SOCOM Gear is announcing a limited release of their Cheytac M200 Shell Ejecting Airsoft Rifle as there will be less than 50 pieces that will be made available. If you are keen on getting this, better place a pre-order now before someone beats you to it… “The first production: less than 50 pcs. Please ask for MadBull/ Socomgear distributor for pre-order.

Guaranteed 1:1 external dimension correct. (internal dimension is not 1:1). This project took us 1.5 years and sent engineers twice to USA to do the dimension measurement.”
We have read about the upcoming SOCOM Gear Cheytac M200 Gas Operated Sniper Rifle early this year when they presented this at the Shot Show 2010. Things have died down and then after 8 months, they have sent sneak preview photos of the upcoming rifles just last week. Now, another poster about it. What’s my point? This airsoft sniper rifle’s release is more than imminent and speculate that it will be released next month. Originally designed to fire 6mm shell encased BBs, it’s now 8mm with the casing and thus will be latest shell ejecting sniper rifle in the airsoft market.
As for the pricing, we do not know yet. But then it’s something for you to save up for come Christmas.
If you have noticed when you visit the SOCOM Gear website, the site now sports a new look. They have an upcoming Cheytac M200 gas powered sniper rifle which has a shell-contained 8mm bb, an interesting development … "Thanks for some players help. Our new design of SOCOMGEAR website is done. Special thank to Chris Dellosa, a true artist.

- Bullet shell

After all the releases of the Barrett M82A1 airsoft electric and spring replicas from last year, now it’s Ares' turn to show their stuff and it's no surprise that they are coming out with the a gas version. With their track record of releasing gas rifles, then this is something to look forward to and strain our wallets with. Also coming soon from Ares will be their M4 GBB series which we cannot say for now if it's gonna be compatible with the WE or WA GBB series. Hopefully pricing will be good.
Now, what we’ll need to look forward to are the release dates for these niceties.
