"Ah the classical Tokyo Marui hi capa 5.1. This gun is quite possibly the best pistol on the market. My 5.1 outranges my friend's kwa mp9 and almost outranges his SR10. I got it when it was 160 so the price wasn't that bad. This gun is a beast.
Good FPS (330-350)
Made in Japan trades
Metal lower frame
Tokyo Marui hop up
Plastic slide (it actually increases the ROF but most people hate the plastic slide)
Now its a bit pricey (used to be 160 but now its 180)
The basic upgrades include a stronger recoil spring (150 or below. Don't get the 170 it decreases gas efficiency), a better nozzle (KJW red/blue nozzles and guarder nozzles are the best), and a 6.01 or 6.03 inner barrel (PDI inner barrels are extremely rare and expensive but are worth it. Madbull 6.03 inner barrels are good), and maybe a metal slide (AVOID Guarder, 5KU, and WE) Airsoft Surgeon slides and Airsoft Masterpiece slides are amazing, and a metal outer barrel (Get a fixed outer: Deepfire, AIP, Nineball, and Airsoft Surgeon make fixed outer barrel)
The unnecessary upgrades are all mostly external parts:
Cocking handle, safety, grip safety, magwell, etc
Note: Hi-flow valves aren't necessary but they do help the FPS and gas efficiency
This setup (inner barrel, nozzle, recoil spring, etc will probably net you about 380+ FPS. Most fields I know don't check pistol FPS, but do the right thing. :)
Because this is a Tokyo Marui hi capa, 90% of upgrades and parts will fit. I currently have a black and gold hi capa: a gold slide, gold magwell, and a gold beaver tail safety. I am planning on installing a PDI inner barrel when they come back in stock anywhere.
Magazines: The Tokyo Marui magazine is a bit heavier than WE or KJW mags. Also, WE mags don't lock back my slide, it may be the recoil spring but even without the aluminum gold slide, the WE magazine couldn't lock back my stock plastic slide. It was fine because I am planning on short stroking and installing one of those sight mounts anyway. But, for me anyway, the slide lock doesn't function with WE mags. Just a dud? I mean they're only 20 bucks anyway.
The Tokyo Marui hi capa 5.1 is the best pistol to buy because of the upgrades and the customizable options. If you get this pistol, it will last you for years. I haven't lubed mine since I got it which was 2013ish and it still works fine. I'm not saying to not lube it. I'm just extremely lucky. This pistol is the best thing I ever bought in my airsoft career. I am actually selling my M4 and MP5 for pistol parts. :)
Get it now this pistol is beautiful.
Also, don't hold it like Death Kid in Soul eater. I tried it and the slide couldn't blowback as well. The gas sprayed all over my face too. "50 out of 5 stars. Second best airsoft purchase I have ever made. This is my third gas blowback pistol I've ever owned (other two are a KJW M9A1 and a WE 5.1" Hi-Capa) and I can easily say that this blows them out of the water.
Metal lower frame (not typical of a Tokyo Marui)
Comfortable plastic grip
Metal chrome hammer
Metal chrome spring guide
Metal black spring guide plug
Metal black safeties
Metal beavertail safety
Metal black mag release
Metal black slide release
Adjustable metal iron sights (front sight has a white dot, rear sights don't have any dots).
Metal hop up that is very well-constructed and provides a great air seal.
Comes with a metal lower rail that you can put on.
Comes with a unjamming/cleaning rod.
Comes with two replacement followers in case the followers break in your mag.
Accuracy is fantastic. When the hop up is adjusted right, you can easily hit targets from 200 feet.
I've chronoed this, and it shoots 285 with .20 gram BBs and duster gas (this will have a higher FPS with propane).
Light trigger pull.
Lightweight (because of plastic slide and outer barrel).
Plastic chrome outer barrel (not that big of a deal, really)
Plastic slide (I actually prefer the plastic slide, but most seem to be metal slide-fanboys)
Brass inner barrel (nothing really wrong with that, but it could be steel or aluminum; mostly putting this since there's not that many cons)
Better to use duster gas than propane because of the plastic slide. This is really its biggest con, as propane will give you a faster FPS and a faster RoF (cycles faster), but if you want the plastic slide to live as long as it can, use duster gas. To use duster gas, you have to get a duster gas adapter; you can get one by buying the Airsoft Innovations propane adapter kit. It comes with a duster gas adapter, a propane adapter, and silicon.
Overall, great pistol. I am now officially a Tokyo Marui fanboy. "I love this gun it performs amazingly. But I do suggest you get a metal slide becuase when using the plastic slide with Green gas it can break the slide catch. I personally ordered a Guarder metal slide for it but you will have to do some filing on the slide so you get a nice clean slide cycle. If its too tight you will use more gas with less performance. Besides that I love the gun it kicks hard, its accurate and shoots far. Read More Reviews Write a Review
