I found this video on youtube:

As far as I understand they are handling a HobbyFix M4A1 with some modifications at a current show. Most comments seem to be admiring the realism of this 20 year old model.

I have enjoyed the video, but started to feel really old ...

I saw this video very recently but did not realise it is a Hobby Fix model. I was impressed by how realistic this M4A1 looks and sounds. Very, very niceĀ  Very Happy HobbyFix M4A1 handled at a show in Japan 2740960407

They are definitely the pinnacle of AR15 models.

Hi 8ace! Yes, they look like real crimped blank carts.

As the HF model is lacking a full size firing pin they can not ignite. Anyway a real blank would blow the model to bits I am sure, so it would still be dangerous to handle life blanks. I do not think they are available in Japan tough due to their strict gun regulations. Maybe they are dummies?

Here is another video:

This is a nice Japanese video showing how to operate a M4 as well as immediate action drills if there is a malfunction, using a HobbyFix M4A1 model.

Sadly the HobbyFix M4A1 is a dummy modelgun, but you can cycle dummy rounds, so it is better than a real deact. Other than that it is as realistic as a model can be. Of course it is expensive. Even used models do not sell cheaper than 2000 USD in Japan, often going up to 3500 USD. But there were only 150 (first production run in 2000) and 70 (I am not totally sure about this number - second production run in 2001) made, so this is one of the rarest modelguns, even in Japan.
