Airsoft WW1 or WW2 replica guns

    Hi all .
    I know nowt about your sport, but I'm looking for a WW 1 or WW 11 replica rifle (if such a thing exists?) for a project and was advised that the Airsoft people (you) might know where I can get one.
    The 'rifle' does not have to be in working order, as it'd be just a prop to sit on an old Army bicycle I've restored, which looks positively naked without a rifle on it.
    Any ideas?

    Assuming that you're looking for something for the Irish/British army then you're out of luck, airsoft Lee-Enfields are rare and expensive. Replicas can be got however at a much more reasonable price.,12538

    Thanks for the above KF.
    Any old replica rifle would suffice for the job.
    I'm sometimes called upon to give lectures to Historical Societies, Bicycle Clubs, etc and always end up using a brush to demonstrate the various ways weapons were carried on Military bicycles through the early years of Military 'bicycling.'

    I'm sure to come up with something, eventually.
