Most likely it's an air soft gun . Which looks like orginal but is actually firing plastic bb

Oh Ok. that makes more sense I guess..

Very much possible, as they make pretty realistic airsoft weapons. As far as I know, only Howa of Japan makes clones of US and other rifles for their military.

There aint no way japanese are gonna make Deagle's."Tokyo marui" is the largest Airsoft gun manufacturer in Japan.They make almost every airsoft gun model ie.M4,ak-47,deagles,mk23 etc.Infact they even have an airsoft MINIGUN!This pretty much explains everything :)

I was puzzled about a DE (or any other modern handgun) being made in Japan, so did some searches.

Some cutouts from this link:


....External The Desert Eagle comes in a black TM box specifically designed to fit the DE. Inside the box, there is the DE, its magazine, some BBs, cleaning rod, and the usual TM leaflets and manual all in Japanese.......

....On the left side of the slide, it says, "DESERT EAGLE .50AE PISTOL ISRAEL MILITARY INDUSTRIES LTD.(I.M.I)," and on the right side of the slide, it says, "MAGNUM RESEARCH INC. MINNEAPOLIS MINN. MADE IN JAPAN.".......

If you check out the link, it'll be pretty clear that the gun is airsoft.

Btw, airsoft guns are often pictured with real ammo (or real-looking ammo)

This pistol can,t be a firearm as Magnum research dosen't have any outsourcing arangements in Japan as far as i know.
At the same time it is not like that if Japanese companies aren't in civilian firearms. Browning get its .22 semiauto rifles made in Japan by Miroku. A such rifle is available at Orient. Miroku itself is making O/U shotguns in sports and hunting versions.

I think japan is not making any handguns for marketing, They are moving on ultra high technology, Like Lazer, settalite and space technology

Tokyo Marui makes excellent airsoft replicas that are sometimes used as movie props. This is for sure an airsoft weapon.
