PostSubject: GBB Shellejectors Small Collection   Fri Jul 10, 2009 5:36 pm

Decided to go for shellejecting Airsoftguns. Not sure if these really are interesting for this forum... if they are: Feel free to ask any questions Smile
Videos coming soon (hopefully).

First up: Marushin Kar98K. Quality is ok (like with almost all Marushin guns I know, they all have their flaws), a lot of metal and real wood stock. The shell system is rigid and works flawlessly, so this really is a LOT of fun!


Marui MP5A3 Shellejector. Rare and rather sought after, but quality is VERY low, as this was built by Marui based on one of their cheap springers. It's mechanism has nothing to do with the real counterpart, there's just a small lever, that flicks out the shells, when you fire. Works in fullauto though, so it's pretty awesome Very Happy


Maruzen M870. Quality is very solid, even though it's externally mostly made of ABS. Rigid pump mechanism, you can even do the one handed "Terminator flick". Amazing sound and, like every shellejector, much fun to use. Quite a bit cheaper than the (fullmetal) shellejecting M870s manufactured by Tanaka, but pretty hard to come by nowadays.


The rarest gun in my collection: First generation Marushin M1 Carbine Shellejector in the semiautomatic version. Marushin made quite a few M1 Carbine Shellejectors which had to be repeated manually, but those semiautomatic M1s are rare as hell. Has a seperate gastank for the blowback/shellejection, so you can operate it without actually shooting BBs. Quality is not bad, plastic externally, real wood stock, metal internals. Shooting power is very low, but then again: Who get's something like that for shooting power? Wink


And the last gun, got that only a week ago: Marushin M1887 Guard's Gun. Didn't like that sawed off "Terminator 2" version, so I got the long one. It has real wood furniture, ABS body and barrel and metal internals. Totally different feeling to use this gun, it's the first underlever I have - brings so much fun to have the shells flying out the rear of the gun Very Happy

Great photos!

Shell ejecting GBBs are (for me) the next best thing to modelguns. Even if not as realistic, they give enough fun :-)

Any gun that looks like a gun, and works like a gun, is fine for me!
Very nice photos too.

Tell us some more.........

Terrific collection, well done.

Wasn't there a Walther SMG shell ejector softair, at one time, too?

Was and is- I've got one, although I still need to fix it- the ejector doesn't quite line up with the rim of the rounds, sadly. Also doesn't work with real spent brass the way the MP5 did.

If anyone's interested, I'm going to have to downsize my collection... which includes one of those MP5s that is currently needing fixing, and one of the Walthers that just needs an adjustment so the ejector lines up better.



Have you ever tried other shells in those Maruzen shotguns? I've got both the M870 and M1000, but I wish I could use shells that weren't blue, since blue's a symbol for inert training replica, and I use these as props. They aren't proper 12ga size, but maybe some other gauge, or some other brand of airsoft shells?

I like the Kar rifle- works with stripper clips too, although not as smoothly as the real thing probably. Feels much more solid than the Super-9 shell ejecting rifles I've also got.




Then there's also the RAP paintball markers that eject .43 tubular casings:


and the cap firing shell ejecting cheapie airsoft electric semi-auto M4s.

(repainted).
They look better if you alter the mag to look full size, too:

Thanks for your comments everyone, glad you like those guns Smile

I definately plan to make some videos, just have to wait for a friend to lend me his (pretty good) camera. Then they'll be up in no time.

@ Fight Designer:
You mentioned, that you'd sell the MP5 before, I might be interested in that and in the MPL, too, but it's a pain in the a** to import airsoft guns to Germany. Out of curiosity: What would you ask for those two shell ejectors?

I only recently got a handful of deactivated real shotgun shells and only then did I realize, that the Maruzen Shells are smaller in diameter, as you mentioned...
There are not many alternatives I know of. Tanaka Shotguns use shells, too, but I don't know their size (yet) - even if they fit, they are very expensive, as they have a gastank inside.
Then there are those "magazine shells" for Marui shotguns (SPAS12 and M3). They are red or green and not too expensive but I don't know the size of those either...

I think, the best bet would be to file the Maruzen shells down a bit, so that they are even smaller in diameter and then glue a red "paper" around them. Or spray them red Wink

I'd let the MP5 go for cheap, since I know I don't have time or skill to fix it right now. Say $50 plus shipping. Not bad at all, since I paid something like $300 for it. Embarassed

The MPL, since it's still basically functional, would be more- say $225 plus shipping.

Ya know, somewhere I've got one of the modelgun pump shotguns that also broke... I should see if those shells fit in the Maruzen...

Give me some time to think about it, fightdesigner, I might decide to take one of those or both off your hands...
Does your MPL really have the folding stock shown in the picture above?

Got me a new baby for my shellejector collection yesterday: A Daisy / Maruzen Remington Wingmaster M870.
Daisy, the probably most successful manufacturer of airguns, wanted to have a piece of the cake, when airsoft became more popular in the US in the early 80s. They imported Maruzen airsoftguns (ALL of them springpowered shellejectors) and put the name "Daisy" on them.
They stopped selling those in 1987, so every Daisy airsoftgun you find is
a) a Maruzen (except for their MP5, which is a FTC) and
b) about 22 - 25 years old which is VERY old in airsoft-years Smile

As a fan of classics and shellejectors I just HAD to get this thing, when I got the opportunity.
It's almost completely plastic, creaks and whobbles in every place, has the most buttugly "woodimitation" that I have ever seen (in fact, stock and grip are just plain brown) and the power is totally laughable. But well, it's the 25 year old grandfather of modern shelldriven airsoft-shotguns, so the collector in me doesn't care Wink Oh, and the shells are NOT blue! Very Happy
