It's something that many would appreciate and others may perhaps disdain as the Mosin-Nagant is nowhere to be found in this custom look. But if the Mosin-Nagant was designed in the 21st Century, this might probably the look, if BOA will get their way... "We take a Mosin-Nagant and convert it into a bullpup rifle.

Fans of Saving Private Ryan and even Band of Brothers would be looking forward to this upcoming release from King Arms --- the M1A1 Paratrooper Carbine with no details in power source yet. Also, King Arms have taken over the Redfire HK products and thus the Redfire Mosin Nagant Airsoft rifle is now using the King Arms brand. Other updates are the single point sling and the King Arms SVD Wood and CO2 version. All information were sent in by Ho of V Production.
It seems that Rules of Engagement are the first in the UK to take delivery of the full product line-up of Redfire Airsoft, well almost.

"The smell is unmistakeable, it's the smell of pure quality, as you open the box and you get a whiff of real wood. It reminds you of finely crafted wood furniture, or even like a wooden musical instrument. This K.T.W. Classic rifle is certainly a finely crafted piece of kit - an authentic replica of the classic, bolt-action military rifle, the Mosin Nagant. Also known as the M1891, it doesn't take a genius to figure out that it was adopted in 1891.
