Death Of The Chinese Clones

I’ve been hearing news lately that the Chinese government has stopped “all” production of airsoft guns. I thought they were only rumors until I saw this.

Death Of The Chinese Clones

“Shenzhen Customs officers destroy replica guns in the warehouse of its Huizhou anti-smuggling office Thursday. About 2,790 guns and 1,500 kilograms of spare parts were destroyed, Customs officials said Friday. The popularity of field warfare games has contributed to increased demand for replica guns in the domestic market, which has led to an increase in replica gun smuggling cases, officials said. The guns resemble the real thing in color, weight, size and quality, and as such can be used by criminals to threaten victims in robberies and muggings. So far nearly 12,000 smuggled replica guns and spare parts have been seized by the Customs this year.” (from Shenzhen Daily)

Is this the beginning of the end for Chinese-made airsoft guns?
