Western Arms Shorty 40 - 6mm GBB Airsoft Pistol

This treasure was stumbled upon in one of my local army surplus stores. I saw it behind the counter with a rather low price tag on it and when I took a closer look I saw that it was an all black Gas Blow Back Airsoft pistol which is a rare fins in Canada! It was supposed to be non-working and that is why it had the low $50 price tag but when I got it home and tested it out, it worked flawlessly! The Western Arms Shorty .40 weighs in at about 1.5 pounds and looks to have a plastic slide and frame but it feels very solid and has a nice weighty full size drop out metal magazine. I found it to shoot pretty decent for a gun that was not supposed to work at all.
