There are no other KNOWN RS T56s in country. If not the very first though, it's one of the first. At the very least, I'm the first Canadian member on ASC to have one.

Cool, with products like RS coming out, it really sucks that airsoft is so hard to obtain in Canada.. I'd totally get a type 56 if i could (darn university is such a cash drain...) and their type 97/97b is starting to grow on me..

Since I saw a thread posted about these guns back last fall, I wanted one. There was a lot of speculation in the said thread about whether or not these would even be allowed into Canada because of the source of the steel parts. When I had the chance to put in a custom request on an gun order, this was my first (and only) selection. I'm glad that I got it.

And I got one of the early ones, since these are a relatively new product. Assuming that the serial numbers are inscribed sequentially into the guns, I have the 359th gun made.

I believe that having an import license also allows importers to bring in non-firing props and sometimes blank firing guns too (someone correct me if I'm wrong here) for use in movie shoots. So if that's the case, I don't think they'd have any harder of a time importing one of these over one of those other guns.

Wanted to add that with a 9.6V battery, the rate of fire on this thing is crazy. For kicks tonight I took off the receiver cover and connected my C8's 9.6V, 2000 mAh battery. I did a quick dry-fire test, and rof was significantly higher than the 8.4V 1400 mAh battery that's in the gun. I'd highly recommend this option for anyone getting this gun. There's plenty of room in the gas tube for even a 10.8 or 12V stick, but not sure if that would be pushing it too much.

I'll be getting some 9.6V stick batteries for this thing shortly.

I got my chrony today and tested the gun. The average of 10 shots was 302 fps, with the lowest being 294 and highest 308. Most were around 300 to 305. Rate of fire with an 8.4V 1400 mAh battery was 13.8 bb/s. With a 9.6V, 2000 mAh, rof was 19.3 bb/s.

Because there is a high chance that our good old customs will turn people around or confiscate the gun.

Cool. So now you own one too. Nice to have another Type 56 owner here. Which one did you get?

You know, one thing that I really noticed recently that I hadn't noticed before is the responsiveness of the trigger. On my other AEGs when firing in semi, it's possible to quickly tap the trigger and just 'cock the spring', with the next hit on the trigger giving an instantaneous shot. It's not possible to do that on this gun. The trigger response is pretty much instantaneous. As soon as it 'clicks', it fires. It feels very much like shooting a GBB or real steel in that respect.

Oh yeah, and my your gun oil comment, I take it you've also notice "the smell" I referred to. lol
