You can make one for yourself. Google M1 conversion airsoft.

I've made one, from an M14.

there is a company that makes the m1. Mar something or other *not tm* there is a review for it in the reviews page. It seems a bit like a gas hog though, you have to put more gas in it every 12 shots ish.

don't know if there is an AEG one yet.

Dart, You're thinking of Marushin.

Why do you say that? Thompsons, MP40's, MP44's, and 1911's are easily acquired. Along with probably many others.

If you have the cash you can get anything you want.

Actually, there's quite a few conversion kits readily available from various individuals who make them on a full time basis.

The WW2AA.com boards have a few guys, 2ndbat and tommygunner to name a few, who make EXCELLENT replica AEG's. Not just M1's... lot's of different options, from Lee Enfields to Grease Guns. These guys will do custom builds as well.



Here's a great example of a forum dedicated to custom built WWII airsoft guns.

How-to's are available as well, even from a local site...

www.ontarioairsoftwwiireenactors.com

The Gas Garand is sweet to say the least, but a hassle to field correctly. It actually ejects the little cartridges, and, while historically accurate, are very easily lost, much akin to shell ejecting bolt action guns.

I even took my own stab at it.

Here's my attempt.

Just about any WWII AS gun is available to an AV buyer in Canada with a little patience.

Trust me on this one.

Get age verified and have a look at the retailers that operate through this site. I do not think you would have a problem finding what you want with 15 minutes of searching after you are age verified.

Without AV I suspect you will be unsuccessful.
