Although this all seems more of the same, it is interesting to note the Real Sword AKs are made of forged, milled, real steel and blued, just like real AKs. I'm no gunsmith, but I would assume this is a lot closer to being an acceptable base for conversion than anything we've previously seen. Its really only a matter of time before airsofters press the limits of realism to the point of total replica. I have to wonder then if that sort of realism will eventually add legitmacy to the fear mongering noted in this news story.
We'll get the governments attention eventually if we keep enjoying ourselves and then they'll have to give us some specific rules we can (hopefully) work with.
