Dear KWA!
Thank you for you interest in producing Russian/Soviet Block airsoft replicas! This is rather unique area
in airsoft world. Overall you are the only company who managed to take two soviet pistols as a production projects. You would be surprised to find a lots of Soviet/Russian-themed airsoft teams and enthusiasts/collectors out there. Typical airsoft games have Green US dressed and equipped players compete against Tan US dressed and equipped players - where all airsoft replicas are US-themed weapons. One side is presented as OPFOR otherwise both teams are identical. Teams that are specialized in Soviet/Russian themed authentic uniforms and gear make game so much interesting and diverse. Plus players get a chance to learn something new about weapons and uniforms of another nation.
Most of the Russian/Soviet Block enthusiasts would give "an arm and a leg" to get a correct historically accurate airsoft weapon replica. You've exceeded our expectations!
If you are looking for ideas for further East Block airsoft replica projects I was asked by more than a few people to write about one of them.
According to historical timeline you already have a Tokarev TT-33 and a Makarov PM, which was Tokarev's successor as Soviet military and police service side arm, Soviet Block had also developed a fully automatic combat pistol - to assist various army units (Tankers, RPG grenadiers, Special forces, etc) that did not need any form of assault rifle/carabine as their main weapon, or needed a stronger sidearm (than a Makarov PM, that was more of a law enforcement pistol, rather than an army one).
Weapons engeneer Igor Stechkin came up with a fully automatic pistol known as APS "Avtomaticheskiy Pistolet Stechkina" (rus) "Stechkin Automatic Pistol". It had a wooden holster-stock simmilar to Mauzer C96, and was a popular "exotic" weapon among former Eastern Block army and law enforcement personnel. Here are few images and a link to a Japanese video review which demonstrates how the weapon fires on full auto. The pistol itself has "Safe-Semi-Auto" switch incorporated in safety lever.

Knowing how few fully automatic gas blowback pistols are currently on the airsoft market, this project would definitely be a blast! Plus it will make your previous two Russian sidearms become a series/set along with it.
Please take this perspective project into careful consideration. Thank you!

P.S. All "non-US-made-gun haters" and "Make-me-a-50caliber-full-auto-Desert-Eagle-with-a-drum-mag-&-rails-to-hold-a-scope-and-a-underbarrel-grenade-luncher-and-a-bipod-and-a-etc..." commentators please ignore this post completely.  =)

So unless you intend to make it as a green gas gun and full auto (the one above is a single shot only) that project is already done by Gletcher...

You probably miss the notice this section is for suggestion on the forum only.  Not about suggestion which models to make.
