I was just informed that my Type 56 is in country and has cleared customs. Hellfire should have it by Monday, and I should have it within a week from that date. JOY!

Casting marks and numbers on the gas block rear sight block etc suggest a fair amount of parts have started life on real steel production lines and pulled before they were finished, or pressed on orignal tooling. Others are airsoft specific (eg the outer barrel) but using similar grades of material to the originals.

Makes sense for the chinese - they work thru all their weapons variants then they've got a full range of airsoft training weapons for their own armed forces with weird western folks to pick up the bill (and they probably make as much per unit as they used to do selling semi auto centrefire rifles to US importers but with none of the political hassles).

One thing I would say crunchmeister is that the T56 is basically a 400+ FPS rifle equipped with a 300 FPS spring (probably to allow it to meet the legal power requirements of most markets in a single 'one power suits all' config).

If you're leaving the rifle at its out of the box power levels consider swapping out the hop bucking for something bigger and softer (eg guarder clear bucking). If you're upping the spring to 400+ give the original bucking a try

I plan to leave it stock for a while, but will more than likely want to upgrade it to sub-400 speed with a new spring sometime in the future. I more than likely won't be shooting it much in the short term. My current kit is all geared to Armalite mags, so it wouldn't be practical. I really want this rifle for a collector's item more than a field gun, although I will eventually take it out to games. I'll get myself geared up for AK mags and the gun will get a spring upgrade before it gets fielded for the first time. 300 fps just doesn't cut it. I'm just not in a rush for it yet.

EDIT: YAY! Hellfire shipped mine today and it's due to arrive at my door on Feb 5!!!
