Since you're too young to get a hotel, you should look around, maybe check some aim chatrooms.
Theres alot of really friendly, nice people out there, that'd be more than willing to accomodate a young boy.

The plunger does look impressive as hell compared to the current NF. I wonder if Japanese safety regualtions are less strict than US ones.

Safety regulations tend to be less strict in countires like Japan and China. Thats why you have things like the red lead paint incident that happened a while ago.


How does something flap in the world? Wait, never mind. I'm scared of finding out. I do find engrish funny as hell, though. "Tis the season to be jorry. Fra ra ra ra ra ra ra ra ra." Man, I really want to go buy a bee bee gun now. 10 points to whoever gets the reference first.[/quote]

I've heard that before. Is it the chinese guy in south park?

couldn't Yada get sued by Hasbro? Or since it's Japanese is it protected?

More info on the buying: Shipping to any USA location except military bases like the one I'm at here in Japan and maybe Guam will be roughly like buying a vulcan on ebay. Crazy expensive. I didn't find it at the 100 yen store, I found it at the store next to it for 1800 yen. BUT... What I can do for those willing to wait is mail the guns when I go back to the USA on vacation this summer. Depending on the amount of interesed buyers, I'll only be able to get my hands on four or five. If you want it shipped, it probably be about 30$ including the gun, darts, and shipping. People who are willing to get it shipped have priority.

And I'll be the representative to Japan, since my partner hasn't applied yet.

Is that where that blaster comes from?! I have one that I got at value village. Its such a wad of shit. The plunger is barely larger then a shitty airsoft pistol.



The knock off NF. Looks cheezy. looks like a crappy ver of the 1st gen nf case and the internals from the 1st gen Knock off TTG's from target.

According to the rules, a Necro is posting junk on a dead thread. I believe that this isn't a necro since I'm just telling everyone who posted in this thread or is curious in the about what happened after I modded this knockoff.

Well, after I returned home to my tools and really worked on this gun, I realized that it was mostly a piece of crap. It looked and shot better than a NF out of the box, but it can't take any pressure. I took out the flashlight area and gave it a metal barrel. It looked pretty good. I didn't do anything internally other the cut out the AR. After a hundred shots, the rod or whatever you pull back snapped clean in half. I wasn't bending it or anything. Cheap plastic.

It turned out to be worth it, however, because the knockoff spring is much stronger then the real NF spring. It also fits right inside the real NF spring, so now my real NF is a beast.

As I said earlier, I'm just finishing the topic and finishing the story, so I don't think it broke the rules.
