1st Training Weapon Festival To Take Place In Tokyo This Weekend
12 Jun 2019
Systema Engineering, the company behind the Professional Training Weapon (PTW) systems that are so admired by airsoft players though only a few can afford due to being expensive niceties for airsoft, will be supporting the 1st Training Weapon Festival. According to the email sent by Systema, this is hosted by NBORDE and will be on the 15th to the 16th of June 2019 at the Akihabara UDX Gallery L in Tokyo.
Visitors to this event can expect a large number of custom-made guns made by specialized shops from all over Japan will be on display. They are allowed to handle the training weapon, ask questions, and even place orders. Also, many real gun parts imported from the United States will also be on display.
Apart from training weapons which are mainly airsoft guns, there will be tactical gear that will be on display and on sale. The gear brands are familiar brands amongst airsoft players and the tactical community. There will also be activities such as CQB game and a custom gun competition where there will be prizes at stake.
Training weapons that will be allowed to be tested can be fired with a 30 metre shooting range that will be setup at the festival venue.
