Gentaro Toi takes a look at the Tanaka Type 38 Rifle Version 2 i nn this Hyperdouraku review. This rifle was adopted by the Imperial Japanese Army in 1905 and was used in World War II... "Tanaka released a gas-type bolt action Type 38 Cavalry gun. Moreover, this time we will review the real woodstock standard equipment and the finest luxury version in the gray steel-finished engine that creates a vintage atmosphere. The appearance is very real and beautifully finished, how about the it's real shooting performance?
Gentaro Toi reviews the revolver of Togusa in Ghost in the Shell in its airsoft form made by Marushin, the Mateba Revolver X-Cartridge with Wood Grip Version for Hyperdouraku... "The Mateba Revolver, which is well-known in Japan because it is Togusa's favorite gun in the anime 'Ghost in the Shell'. Only the Marushin model of the Mateba Airsoft Gun has been upgraded. It was released in 2008 and its name was 'Togusa's Gun M-2007M' and it was super straight :D.
Last month Hyperdouraku announed the winners of their Custom Gun Contest 2019. No other than the Tanio Koba announced the winners himself, which is already a big thing in itself... "This year is the 12th custom gun contest! This year, you can enter your favorite custom gun. And finally the results are announced!"
Read the full story (in Japanese) and below is the video of Tanio Koba doing the honours of announcing the winners:
Hyperdouraku reviews an airsoft version of the SIG Sauer MPX, the air-cocking XMP-K. Too bad it is not a full blown AEG or GBB... "The XMP-K is an air cocking gun for those over 10 years old, was released in August 2019. The model name is XMP-K, but the shape is exactly the MPX, a multi-caliber submachine gun announced by SIG SAUER in 2013. The calibre is 9mm and can be converted to use the .357SIG, and .40S & W calibres.
Now this is a really old school rifle, the Masudaya Toys Urchin Extra 7mm spring-powered rifle reviewed by Hyperdouraku. This was introduced in 1982, has a capacity of 6 shots and an initial muzzle velocity of 35.7m/s. One thing that we like about this is that it can be easily broken down into four different sections, making it easier to chuck in a bag for transport that doesn't scream "gun inside."

This is a follow up on the Systema Type 89 by Hyperdouraku after the first reveal by Systema Engineering this year and this is a review on the actual commercial package since it was released in July 2019. This is the third gun design from the Systema after the AR and MP5 platforms as the company attempts to stay relevant as more competitors in the training weapon area are coming. As always, this is a premium-priced AEG and will probably have customers mainly from Japan.
Another review by Gentaro Toi for Hyperdouraku, checking out the 7 1/2 inch Tanaka Colt SAA45 U.S. Cavalry (2nd) that comes with a steel finish... "About 20 years have passed since the first release of the Pegasus series, a caseless gas revolver developed by Tanaka. Colt SAA45 7-1/2inch Detachable Cylinder Steel Finish was released this spring.
Review by Gentaro Toi for Hyperdouraku on the 357 Magnum Smith & Wesson M13 FBI Heavyweight Version 3 Revolver made by Tanaka... "The S & W M13 3inch FBI special has been upgraded to Ver.3 for the Pegasus series, a caseless gas revolver developed by Tanaka, and reintroduced for the first time in about five years.
If you have been looking for one to buy, better look hard as only 1,000 units of the ICS CXP-MARS KOMODO SSS Limited Edition have been made. This comes with the new SSS OOO E-Trigger System and Short Stroke Trigger designed to make the EBB more responsive and have a faster trigger response time. To make it even special, it has a titanium grey colour scheme. Hyperdouraku scrutinises this AEG to find out if it's worth collecting.
The newest member of the Hi-Capa family from Tokyo Marui is the Hi-Capa D.O.R. (Direct Optics Ready) Gas Blowback Pistol. This is the first Hi-Capa that is ready for the installation of a micro-sight and some of the existing Hi-Capa parts are not compatible with it. The Gold Match and the standard 5.1 Slides can be used on it, but the D.O.R. slide is not compatible with the Gold Match and 5.1. Hyperdouraku checks it out if it carries the tradition of the Hi-Capa family.
