    I want to raise awareness of this cheap, revolutionary pistol made by Tokyo Marui. I don't know when it came out, but it is one of the coolest thing I have seen for the spring pistol families in a long while.

    Tokyo Marui calls it the "Gindan" Series

    These pistols are spring powered, but what makes them unique is that they are also semi-automatic! There is no need to cock the slide back before taking a shot, just squeeze the trigger! These springers fire BBs at about 12-15 meters and may not be powerful at all, but they make great cheap secondaries or a back up to your back up (to your back up?)!

    Currently, there is only a Walther PPK and a Glock 26 model with this design and they come in many different colors, like silver to plain pink!

    here's a video review from an airsofter on youtube (Khan-Seb)

    I made a thread on these things about a year ago. Really cool, even if they are only like 200 fps. I never got one.

    Wow, these do seem pretty cool. I would get one if I wasn't working on a custom gun. :p

    Ehobby Asia has them. Haven't bothered to look anywhere else.

    For those wondering, they work by the pull of the trigger directly compressing the spring. With a normal spring gun, a sear would catch it to keep it coked until firing, but instead, it hook onto nothing thus firing immediately. This is what allows semi automatic. Kind of like a BASR with a slam firing issue.

    I'm actually getting this for my cousin for Christmas! This actually looks good for backyard plinkering.
