Survival game “ECHIGOYA Akihabara” constantly stocks over 300 kinds of air guns, dress-up parts and accessories, like goggles and pads, a must for the beginners, and “ECHIGOYA 's” original parts.
This is a must-see store for survival game fans of all levels.
When I asked about a recommendation for beginners, staff brought a Russian military-grade rifle, “AK47,” saying, “while the foreign manufacturer's guns look real and cool, considering the adjustments and maintenance required to suit your needs, we recommend products by Japanese manufacturers.” This staff has been using his beloved AK47 for 2 years without having to administer maintenance.
Mr. Joe, a German, is feeling like a soldier.
Beginners should hold the air gun before making a purchase, to check for compatibility. Things to look for: length, weight, and expandability with other parts.
※Due to the restrictions on the sale of electric and gas guns to minors, those under 18 years of age are not permitted to make a purchase. Please be aware, that you may be asked to present a proof of your age.
Do not for get to buy a charger and extra batteries. A nice reminder for the beginners.
The staff says, “walking outside with a bare air gun is like walking with a knife.” Even though it is just an air gun, it must be stored in a case, when you are out in public. Consult the size chart to select an appropriate case for your air gun.
During a game, when you require the use of both hands, like when you are reloading your gun, a gun strap is a necessity.
At an outdoor field, where you just keep shooting, having a large-capacity magazine is convenient.
The air guns are strong enough to knock out your teeth, when shot at close range. Basic protective gears like goggles, mask, and gloves are a must.
Be sure to try everything on before you buy, to check the fit and size.
You can also find camouflage outfit and gear backpack at “ECHIGOYA Akihabara.”It is important to have the proper attire to get you in the mood.
When you become familiar with you air gun, you will want to get a dot sight.
On this day, Mr. Joe bought “GLOCK 26 ADVANCE” for his personal use.
Many foreigners from Asian countries, United States, and Europe visit this store. The staff can offer help in English.
※Regulations vary between countries for bringing these items back from Japan. Therefore, it is necessary to know the law before you make a purchase.
Staff says, “customers at the store network with each other often, making their own survival game teams or joining each other's teams.” A multi-purpose shop, where you can find gun items, but also a team for playing survival games.
