    Hello,

    As the title says, I'm interested in starting an Imperial Japanese Army reenactment/ airsoft skirmishing group in the NJ/NY/PA where we would go to airsoft games in our full IJA kit, as well as educating people about the history behind it.

    I know that there aren't a lot of IJA airsoft guns on the market right now, and the ones, like the Tanaka Type 99 fetch a price for about $1000, can be cost prohibitive. We can used the Type 38 which is about $250. There are other weapons that we could use as substitutes, or we could use existing ones and dress them up to look like WW2 era Japanese weapons.


    If you are interested, please feel free to message me, or send me an email at [email protected]

    LOL and I'm selling my Tanaka type 38 due to lack of places to go. I've had the knee mortar for 10 years now.

    Try the C&C field in Stanhope, I haven't seen any ija interest on the east coast before.

    Thank you!

    I go with my friend to Stryker using a cheap m4 another friend gave me from time to time. I've been invited to go to Zulu in NY but I dont have a good enough airsoft gun to go there. The M4 has about 150 FPS max.

    There is a game coming up this Sunday in Great Plains about 15 minutes West of Stryker. I'll be there with a couple of friends if you'd like to come out and play.

    I'd love to come, but I have work then :( . How often do you and your friends play? Maybe we could plan something in the coming weeks?

    I try to get out about once per month or so. I post the larger games here in the NJ section of the forum.

    Ok, perfect! Ill see when the games are and see which ones I can make it to! When I do go, I guess you'll know who I am cause I'll most likely be the only one dressed as an Imperial Japanese Soldier there, haha

    I'm going to Stryker tonight (August 4th) with a group of friends if you can swing by. I have a **** ton of loaner things if can start making it there on Thursday nights. I've been going to Zulu for years but C&C in Stanhope is the best field of all. It's the largest field in NJ. Their events are all posted on Facebook though.
