What is it?

I thought it was their own M16 variant for awhile, but what is it now?

It's their version of the AR-18 or AR-180

HOWA Type 89 rifle based on the gas system of the AR-18

Yeah, in the pictures I've seen, it looks alot like an AR18.

Thanks, guys.

His bong was probably blocking the monitor.


I think I have a lense filter made by Howa.

I am personally offended by that bong comment!

I see no picture! I can't figure out why! I saw Alyssa Milano's tits in another thread but don't see the Jap rifle! Can someone post a url link?

Maybe it went the way of our siglines.

Edited to add pic



Also edited to add I see the other pics now.

Type-89

I read about it and it sounds like a really nice rifle..

neatest sounding thing is that the gas piston is tapered (right word?) at the front so that the gas gets the pistol moving more gradually to reduce wear on the rifle

also a negatory on the pic..............nothing here



oh yeah....NOW they show up....sheesh!

it looks like they borrowed designs from other rifles to make the type89? it looks like a mixture of HK, FNC, AR180 combined into one design. I bet it's more reliable than the AR15 ?

It has a four postion selector (safe-semi-full-burst). The burst funtion is a separate unit that's designed so that if it does break or fail, the rifle still functions in the other three positions (safe-semi-full).
