The Howa Type 64 Battle Rifle, is a Japanese battle rifle used exclusively by the Japan Self-Defense Forces and the Japanese Coast Guard. It is a gas-operated, selective fire weapon which is chambered for the 7.62x51mm NATO round and uses a detachable 20-round box magazine. The Type 64 was never exported due to Japan's strict anti-hardware export laws. It has been superseded by the more advanced Howa Type 89 from 1989 to 1990, but is still in service with all branches of the Self-Defense Forces and the Japanese Coast Guard.
The S&T Type 64 is created with an eye for authenticity. Constructed fully from metal and wood and weighing in at a hefty 7.5 pounds, the Type 64 is an accurate representation of the revered Japanese battle rifle. Complete with flip up sights, authentic wood furniture and Japanese government stamps, the S&T Type 64 will stand apart from the rest of your collection.

"I think I might have ended up buying the last one in stock. Performance is what you'd expect for the price, in my opinion. The long barrel definitely improves accuracy. The gearbox is proprietary, but based on the G3, with the only differences being the shell and nozzle. Piston is plastic.
Magazine release and insertion is kind of tricky, because if you don't hook the mag on a notch in the magwell right, you'll have to push the magazine back then forward to seat it. Releasing it requires the user to hold the release lever long enough for the mag to completely leave the well. I believe S&T also makes midcaps, but as of now they aren't available on Evike. I'm also pretty sure a picatinny handguard rail exists, once again not sold on Evike.
Sights are a bit troublesome at times, sometimes folding down with needed. That actually adds to the realism because it's apparently a problem with the real steel Type 64. The rear sight's aperture is tiny and will take some getting used to.
Bipod is very nice but will inevitably scratch the lower handguard if it hasn't happened in transit. The way that its shaped at the bottom really helps to anchor it in place if pressed into dirt and the like, but that also means it'll scratch any surfaces it's placed on.
The battery compartment is accessed by a door in the back that's really hard to open. I personally unscrewed the buttplate, removed the door, and left the back of the stock open for easy battery access. Fortunately, the flip-up shoulder rest protects the battery perfectly fine, and even if it's flipped up, your shoulder should suffice to keep the battery from coming out or being exposed.
Bayonet mount seems to accept M1 type bayonets. I'm planning to acquire one for the TENNO HEIKA BANZAI factor.
I'm very satisfied with the weapon, although it was pricey. I'm grateful that I grabbed it while it was on sale for $308, especially with the original price being $380. I'm also feeling a bit iffy over the price of additional mags and the scope mount, and the fact that Evike doesn't carry the handguard rails and midcaps. Nevertheless, I rate the gun itself five stars. I may or may not update once I've used this weapon more and have a better feel for its performance.
