I'd like to get the Tanaka S&W M1917 4inch Hand Ejector replica. They are sold out everywhere and I am having a hard time finding one.

How's this?

I don't see an "out of stock" notice for it so you should be good.

I've never ordered anything from Rakuten, however I've been looking at airsoft guns on it, hence knowing where to look for the S&W.

Rakuten seems to be Japan's version of Amazon and Ebay. In Japan, where Rakuten is omnipresent, its businesses include online travel, auction and e-books, plus a bank and securities firm, as well as a baseball team, the Rakuten Eagles.

There's got to be a US supplier of the guns though... at least someone drop shipping them from Rakuten. They may be trusted but the shipping and wait time might be high.

If you want to go "all in" watch the action site You can get the other Indy gun, the Smith and Wesson 1917 for $400-500 if you are lucky/persistent. The hand ejector seems rarer and thus higher priced. Neither will come with 4 in barrels, you will have to cut either one.
