Categories: Article


It's time to tell you about a novelty of the upcoming update - the assault rifle Howa Type 89 Custom. This is an incredibly powerful gun, capable of killing the enemy with one well-aimed hit to the head. The rifle is effective at any distance, easy to use and has unique attachments, which enable the shooter to fine-tune the arm to his/her needs.

Howa Type 89

The rifle was developed by the Japanese company Howa Machinery Company Ltd in 1898. It is available in three versions - the original one, the version with a folding metal buttstock and the one with an ambidextrous selector switch plus an additional 3-round-burst shooting mode. The Howa Type 89 is a symbolic gun in the Japanese armament, which is still in use.

The model was designed on the basis of the American platform AR-18, which in comparison with the AR-15, features a more advanced construction with a short-stroke gas piston that is a distinctive feature of the gas system of the Howa Type 89. It consists of two parts: the face and the piston. Such design provides a two-stage energy transfer, which contributes to a more smooth operation of the mechanisms.
The trigger mechanism allows for a single-shot and automatic fire. By mounting a separate attachment, it is possible to fire with 3-round bursts. The frame of the weapon model is made of steel, its forend - of aluminum barrel plates, while the buttstock and the grip are plastic.
