"It's a Tokyo Marui - you already know what to expect.
Picking it up for the first time will tell you everything you need to know. Few pistols come close, with the exception being other Tokyo Marui's.
If you've never purchased a Tokyo Marui gas pistol before, don't be dismayed by the plastic factor. If you use green gas over an extensive period of time, the slide may crack (often not for years), but Tokyo Marui lower frames are resilient. Known to outlast cheap metals of WE and similar guns. The plastic is a very dense plastic. Just put the concerns out of your mind. This thing is SOLID.
There's something special about the look and finish of the Night Warrior to me. I'm not a fan of single-stack 1911's, but this one I had to have. The finish is a matte black on the slide and dark matte dark on the lower. It's serious. Professional. A color duo that works well together. Tokyo Marui works does their job to make the surfaces look as unlike a like a toy as possible. A few silver accents here and there complete the look of this pistol.
The pistol feels great in the hand. Tight. All the components are snug, with no play. The grips are visually appealing. Though texturized, they're a bit slippery. I am a fan of the Hogue wraparounds and they do fit TM 1911's. So I'd recommend that.
One of the best part of this are the sights. They're NOVAKs and are mighty pleasing to the eye. Out of all of TM's sights, they sure are the nicest.
Accuracy is good. For the average pistol, it is excellent. For a TM, it can be better. The Hi-Capa wins here. I believe TM uses the same bucking across all their guns, so I don't know why this is.
Because it's a TM, blowback is nice and fast, but being a 1911, it doesn't have the same gas efficiency as a Hi-Capa. A magazine comparison between the two will tell you why. After ~15 shots, cycling starts to slow down. Sometimes it will not finish a full-magazine's worth of gas, so I recommend loading 4 or 5 rounds short of full capacity. Eliminate these issues entirely by running the 40rd extended magazine. This way you can be more competitive against Hi-Capa's.
Out of the box, the trigger is a little reluctant on the reset , but you can adjust the screw to eliminate take-up and have a nice, single stage trigger that just works.
Keep in mind, all the drawback here aren't cons to speak against the reliability or performance of this thing. I'll take this over any WE or KJW gun any day. The critical boxes are checked and then some.
Does it work? Yes.
Reliably? You bet.
Does it shoot accurately? Yes
Do the mags leak? Never.
For the gas gun enthusiast, these are just some things that may be of interest to them.
If you are a 1911 fan, don't go for anything other than Tokyo Marui's 1911's.
"Pros- Great gun, good kick for a GBB, upgradable, adjustable hop-up. I tapped mine into an HPA Pistol. Works even better now.
Cons- Not the most accurate on the field, but its still pretty good.
