airsoft WW2 releases 2011+ (formerly ICS M1 and Grease gun?)


this popped up on the Airsoft GI facebook page a couple days ago
a few airsoft forums talked briefly about it.
Haven't found anymore information. though I have heard talk about the grease gun not having batteries in the mags....
what do you guys think? could ICS be going gbb on these? or aeg? I personally wouldn't mind either (gbb being preferable though)

According to what was heard at the 2011 Shot Show,the ICS M1 Garand and M3 Grease gun (not M3A1 as the ICS will have that cocking handle apparently) will be AEG's each with proprietary mags (well...obviously).

I'll take one of each.

An M1 Carbine AEG would be interesting. It'll be tough to fit a gear box in there though unless it was one of those pistol type gearboxes.

Dboys has been rumoured to be making an M1 Garand or awhile now. Given that their Kar98K isn't exactly skirmishable makes me think the same about any Garand they would make (although I'd probably buy one anyway)

ISC had an outline of a SMLE under the designation M1 at the Shot Show. This started rumours about about an SMLE. Apparently it was just a mistake.

My Ares M3A1 Grease Gun should be here in week or two; looking forward to that.

Perhaps the same style of gearbox as a M249? Just not as beefy so it doesnt weigh 10 lbs.

That gearbox wouldn't fit. The M1 Carbine is quite slim; it wasn't designed for front line combat troops. It was designed to be a step up from carrying a 1911.

I don't understand how you're supposed to hold a grease gun. By the magwell?

I'd love to see a review of the Ares once you get it
and i've heard the same about Dboys, really not looking forward to it unless they totally rethink using shells. an AEG M1 wouldn't be all bad as long as it was over priced and had too many proprietary internals. The grease gun seems interesting, they may have a similar gearbox to the agm sten and mp40. as for the SMLE I wouldnt mind one, probably spring

I thought people in movies always held MP40s improperly by the mag well. I think you're supposed to grip the underside of the gun between the magazine well and the pistol grip. On an MP40, I mean.

hmm this excites me. Was looking into the GBBR m1 but just didn't seem overly practical. And I couldn't find one for less than about a million buxs lol

If they make the m1 with a v7 in it that would be a nice touch. Depends on how they make the CLIPS work. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE for the love of god PLEASE do not make that thing have a hi cap.



and if they can fit a mechbox in a sten they can fit one in a m1 carbine.

I've always liked the Grease Gun (M3) for some time now, hope this version an ICS GBB, although AFAIK ICS haven't ever made a GBB, so getting into the market may be difficult or non-existent.
If it is an AEG though thats fine, an M1 AEG is always a welcome addition.
I mean i do like the clips (yes this is what they are called) and their design, but i'd like to have more than 8 rounds. I hoping the AEG version would have at least 30 or so rounds, with the funcitonal ping of course

On another note, isn't this how you hold a Sten Gun? :

Mag holds can result in misfeeds which was a big problem with the MP-40 in world war II. The proper way to grip it is by the forward hand grip. This is partly why the MP-41 was developed. The PPSH was also very conducive to magazine holds with the drum magazine and very awkward to hold properly.
