Does Tokyo Marui even patent their designs, or is there no jurisdiction over their patents in Taiwan? Nonetheless, WE is on a roll lately. One thing I noticed about this particular GBB is that in Airsoft GI's announcement pictures, there were edges where the paint was missing, as if it got put down on a surface and the paint just scratched off.
WE sucks when it comes to painting/finishing, or at least on their 1911. With little actual skirmishing/hard use, my Novak NeXt is chipping everywhere, which gives it a used look I could never give it.
