Notorious of their fragility - so to my shock and disbelief, Marushin's going to release co2-powered M1 Carbine GBB affraid ...




Quite impractical - 1) Japan's strict >1J power limit and 2) the metal of the gun will crack (if not get blown up) a couple of shots later...so then some kind of gas compressor required?

Although it is claimed that co2 is more environmentally friendly (then the 8kg 134a anyway) - but still......

Very interesting...
It might be due to the fact that nowadays so many airsoft replicas seem to run on CO2. They seem fairly popular, made of metal, and CO2 is easier to obtain. Looks like Marushin wants to look modern here, but I share your concerns.

With dead clued bleeding valves or second fill in valve the old 8mm NBB could take green and redgas and i sometimes push it over the edge with a little Co2 also.
But this was NBB nothing comparing to their blowback systems with several moving parts and gaskets.

What i did not get allready from the pictures...12g capsules taking magazines or co2 fill in ready mags?
Are 8mm guns planned too?

Hi Joey - from what I've learnt...it'll be a co2 capsule taking magazine and since 8mm BB isn't as popular (and practical) as expected therefore 6mm is the only option at the moment...

Nice! Action is very crisp compared to hfc134a. It seems that CO2 is the new trend, after all.
I hope they solved mechanism durability issues when going for stronger gas.

BTW: quoted price is about 550$ (at today's exchange rate)
