Tokyo Marui is one of the leading manufacturers of airsoft guns. Their guns are known for the their good build quality and overall usability. In this article, I’d like to give a brief overview of what I believe to be are their top models.
The Tokyo Marui Carbine model is closely modeled after the Colt M4 Carbine. Because of this, it’s probably one of the most popular models from Tokyo Marui. Even though the outer body is plastic, many people buy it for the superior mechbox. Afterwards, they can always install a third party metal body for additional realism/durability.
Because it emulates the M4 platform, you can think of it as the Honda Civic of airsoft guns. There are a ton of aftermarket upgrades/accessories available for this particular gun. You can install a RIS, upgrade the sights, add a tactical light, the list goes on and on. The sky’s the limit with this type of platform. You can have anything from a short and compact CQB gun all the way up to a long range sniper rifle. It’s all a matter of upgrading some parts and changing out the barrel configuration. Overall, this makes the M4 platform very friendly to both beginners and veterans.
Next, let’s look at the G36c. Modeled after H&K’s popular gas operated rifle, this Tokyo Marui rifle also has its share of fans. It has the same quality mechbox Tokyo Marui is famous for. Add to the fact that this gun already comes with a couple of accessory rails and you have something that’s ready to take into the airsoft battlefield.
The sight picture of this gun is excellent. Acquiring targets with the standard iron sights was much easier when compared to most of the other models. But if you want to use a red dot sight, you can install one using one of the rails. Overall, this is a nice, compact gun that has a decent amount of upgrade options.
If you’re tired of blending in with the crowd, I suggest you try something different and go with the Sig 552. Same great Tokyo Marui quality. But now it’s in a less common exterior body. Like the G36c and M4, it’s a compact carbine model. It features a folding stock and MP5 style sights.
This is a great looking carbine but works great. It’s a less popular model but you can still purchase an aftermarket metal body. One con however, is due to this model’s design, performing mechanical upgrades to this gun is a bit harder when compared to the other models in Tokyo Marui’s lineup.
Want something compact, that has the potential to pack a lot of power? Check out the P90. It features a bullpup configuration for a more compact stance. As with most Tokyo Marui guns, stock velocity is around 280 FPS (feet per second). The gun works particularly well with performance upgrades. Upgrading to 400 FPS is easily attainable with this gun.
It comes in two configurations. One has a built-in red dot sight and the other (the P90 TR) does away with sight and instead goes with a rail system on top. The compact size makes it a favorite for CQB situations. The top rail assembly can be upgraded to a heavier aftermarket metal version.
The mechbox from the various Tokyo Marui guns don’t show a whole lot of variation. The main difference is in the exterior design. So whatever gun you get, you performance will be in the same ballpark. So in the end, you should just get model that fits well with your style. The models I mentioned offer good upgrade options and their exterior design works well on the airsoft field. So if you have any doubts on what you should get, just consult this list.
