hobby and were best known for producing a variety of gas powered airsoft guns during the classic airsoft
period of the 1980s and early 1990s. Asahi still survives as an airsoft manufacturer today, producing high end, bolt-action airsoft rifles based around the Maruzen developed APS-2 mechanism.
About The Company
Asahi is renowned by airsoft players worldwide for their rare and controversial M40/M700. When the sales of the ended in 1993, the Japanese government collected and destroyed most of the traceable M40 and M700 models. This was due to the confirmed rumor that because of the M40's air cartridge system, the bolt could be switched out for a real steel .22 long bolt. There are only 25 of these models left in circulation and can range fom $1,500 up to $3,500 depending on the condition and modifications. The Asahi M40/M700 is the rarest airsoft gun in existence and is considered the "Holy Grail" of airsoft guns.
