You know it.

Love it or hate it, WE does make new guns, even if they all suck.

That videos actually a few months old.



Regardless, if they do bother coming out with it I may have to pick one up.

Cool! Silver P90.
Oh wait....It's plastic...
Nice concept. I didn't like the hissing though...

The clear and silver is because it's a working prototype. They form metal parts in unfinished silver to save finishing costs and polymer parts in clear to see what's going on in the gun until they get it tweaked like they want it.

I see the logic behind that; any idea why the gas hisses when the mag is inserted?

You heard it hissing as he removed the mag as well. It's likely due to the striker not completely resetting, so it still pressed the gas release valve when the mag was released and inserted.

You can see this in some gas pistols where if you dry-fire the gun and insert the mag without racking the slide, the striker will hit the valve and release a small bit of gas. It's probably due to a partial cycle, and not a 'feature' of the gun.

Ah. Well, I look forward to dreaming about this and then realizing that the GBB magazines are even more expensive than the AEG ones. I still want to hold one...

I bet you want a metal body for a G36 too so it'll be just like the real thing?

Lol. I may remind you that I shoot real P90's (PS90) so chastisement is out of the question. I was referring to it being clear sad plastic instead of P90 plastic. YES. I get that it is a prototype, but I can complain if I want to.
