    A commemorative WWII BB gun because we all know BB guns played an important part in winning the war.

      I can completely understand why this product is made, unlike the USA, some of us cannot own a handgun, or even a bloody semi auto rifle. So airsoft is a welcome alturnative, I can enjoy the craftsmanship, the beauty of a firearm without ending up in a state prison. Spare a thought for the rest of the world mate, a commemorative BB gun mgiht be a toy to you, but its all most of us will ever get. If its on the level of the Instoku or the KWC 100th edition, then this will be a marvelous piece, that will be well made and made so that some of us may also own an item that will show our respect and memory of those who fought for our very freedom to speak our own language.
