  1. Apologies for the bullet-point formatting. It seems I can't modify it so each list is single-spaced. If the formatting really bothers you, here's a link to this same document on my google drive: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1U8acwm_xEDo04XfRLj5s-8Zh1z1LMpER9AGWt6l8ONQ/edit?usp=sharing TOKYO MARUI M870: BUILDING THE ULTIMATE AIRSOFT SHOTGUN This is a modification-oriented overview of the Tokyo Marui M870, which has been written over the course of 6 months and covers each phase of my modification and outfitting plan. Treat this writeup as a technical supplement to the more standard reviews already out there, some of which are listed in the Additional Resources section at the end of this document. If you’re short on time, the following is the BLUF (Bottom Line Up Front) for this article: This gun is okay out of the box. Somewhat better than a spring-powered tri-shot shotgun, but not significantly so. See Phase 1 notes for more details. The issues plaguing earlier production runs of this gun have been largely corrected in newer batches. See Phase 2 notes for more details. If you want to maximize reliability and exploit performance potential, get comfortable with taking the gun apart. This especially applies to the x-ring modification, which greatly reduces the likelihood of your gun leaking. See Phase 2 notes for more details. If you plan on upgrading, use WiiTech parts. The more, the better. See Phase 2 and 5 notes for more details. If you want to fine-tune your gun’s performance, converting to HPA is recommended. See Phase 4 notes for more details. If you want to run ammo heavier than 0.30g, be prepared to experiment with the hopup system. See Phase 3 notes for more details. If your gun ends up shooting 0.36+g bbs best, you’ll likely need to upgrade your loading system components. See Phase 5 notes for more details. Fitting a real Remington 870 stock is possible, but it’ll take some work. Having a machinist perform the modification is recommended. See Phase 6 notes for more details. Do not use soft or brittle bbs, like Valken. High-quality bbs like HPA and BLS minimize the likelihood and severity of jams. See the Verdict section for more details. The contents of this article are as follows: Inception/Viability/Selection: Background information Phase 0: Notes gathered from various reviews about TM M870 problems and fixes Phase 1: First impressions and stock performance Phase 2: Disassembly, upgrade and reinforcement part selection, and installation Phase 3: Experimenting with different hopup modifications Phase 4: HPA conversion and performance testing Phase 5: Internal part repair and reinforcement Phase 6: External part selection and fitment, including converting a real Remington 870 stock to fit Phase 7: Accessory and equipment selection On the field/Verdict/What’s next?: After-action report, final modifications, lessons learned, and conclusion Additional Resources/References: Helpful links and sources for information indicated by bracketed numbers The following is the parts list for this build: Base gun: Tokyo Marui M870, wood version Internals Amped Airsoft Integrated Grip Line (IGL) for Jack 1.1/F1/F2, screwed into ¼-28 tapped gas port Blackcat mechanical box spring set WiiTech 150% hammer spring, P/N 4051 WiiTech stainless steel valve pin, P/N 4043 Size 104 nitrile x-ring, modified, installed on valve pin DangerWerx transfer bar WiiTech aluminum loading plates, P/N 4044 WiiTech duster gas nozzle, P/N 4045, with nozzle shaft return spring from WiiTech top gas loading nozzle WiiTech 2016 version hopup chamber, P/N 4059 TM hopup rubbers, shimmed with electrical tape WiiTech 6.03 x 380mm extended inner barrel set, P/N 4032 Externals Real-steel Knoxx SpecOps stock, Gen 1, machined to fit Blackcat sling adapter, slot type, modified to interface with Knoxx SpecOps stock TM M870 Tactical black faux bolt, P/N 870T-39 G&P saddle rail and shell carrier, cut down, P/N MSP-017 Real-steel GG&G QD T1 mount, with Dytac T1 red dot and WiiTech T1 lens protector G&P railed pump, P/N MSP-002H, with Longshot Manufacturing 25-slot M-Lok rails machined to fit Replica H&K vertical foregrip Night Evolution M600C weapon light FMA LA-5 battery box Replica KAC rail covers x2, cut down, backside filed to allow passage of cables WiiTech dummy magazine tube extension, P/N 4028, with coupler from G&P magazine extension Real-steel Remington 870 magazine tube clamp US-issue M60 sling, configured as 3-to-1 point quick adjust sling with ITW MQRB bolted to saddle rail Accessories/other TM shotgun shells with MAS SuperFeed springs and HexMag follower bases Redline SFR regulator First Strike Hero 2 48/4500 HPA tank, or dual First Strike Guerrilla 13/3000 HPA tanks Amped Airsoft HPA line TechT GunSav grease If you’re interested in learning the specifics of how I transformed this rather ordinary replica into what is perhaps the ultimate airsoft shotgun, buckle up. It’s gonna be a long read.
  2. This project has been running for almost a year - not like I grind it everyday like a second job, but design > prototyping > testing > issues > new iteration at a slower pace. At the time of posting I'm considering it almost finished, let's say RC1 if I'm making a software, but I think this is still the best section to post my creation. PROBLEM: Current commercially available pistol-carbine "kits" are mostly for Glocks. Most, if not all, rely on insecure mounting methods in favor of quickly attachment/detachment - rendering aiming system less accurate (read: useless). Many different "host" gun models in the market, leading to inconsistent tolerance issues. Bulky clamshell looks bad and fat. MISSION: Make a conversion kit for Hi-Capa. Pistol securely mounted inside said kit, preferably able to return-to-zero after removal and reinstall. Looks cool AF. DESIGN CONSTRAINTS: Also many different Hi-Capas in the market, screw it and make it fits TM Hi-Capa 5.1 Only. Lack of proper mounting points, C-More sight mount pattern is used for drill/tap, drilling jig is created for easy installation. ALL custom parts have to be reasonably made on demand, main structural parts with be CNC milled carbon fiber sheets, and self made parts with FDM 3D printer How it started from a doodle early CAD model and 3DP pieces the most nitpicking mount, old gen non-adjustable ARMS QD on 3DP rail around the size of an Umarex/VFC MP7A1 first working prototype with all 3DP parts CF test piece and test fitting some updated 3DP parts and optional extended barrel piece, accommodates up to 250mm IB (M4 MWS) later CAD image very close to release version and, yeah, tons of test parts
  3. Boxed Marui M45A1 GBB with two spare magazines FPS UK LEGAL AT 290 beautifull replica of the USMC’s issue handgun (for MARSOC and RECON I believe) done in tan with 3D printed grips; inbuilt rail for torches or lasers. Novak iron sights round it off. Comes with a total of three gas right brand new magazines. Probably used in two games and then some filming/photo sessions for reviews so it really is in pristine condition. If you’re looking for a 1911 that’s not just another 1911 like the plethora you see on any given game day then this is the pistol for you! Price £145 all in delivered in the UK. Proof of eligibility to buy will be required and checked.

    Tokyo Marui HK45

    Since everyone is starting to get their HK45, I thought that perhaps it might be best to have a thread to discuss any thoughts or possible issues that may arise. My impressions are the recoil is quite there, it's just subdued compared to the Hi-Capa or the Glocks. The Gas efficiency is hard to test since it's still cold here in NY but I hope to test more extensively soon since it definitely is getting warmer. The polymer is quite nice, noticeably more matte than my Glock 26. Notable Points: - Internal hidden slide catch. The "external" (what the real slide catch would be) has less than half a mm of clearance to the slide stop point. There is an internal metal catch that is visible if you disassemble slide from the gun which acts on a metal reinforced catch point INSIDE the slide. ingenious, durable and you'd never know by looking at the gun in action! - Hop up serviceable without slide removal. I haven't owned any of the newer TMs such as the XDM so I'm not sure if this is new or not. - Very nicely finished plastic/polymer - Decocker, interchangeable grip straps a la real HK45 as expected. - Comes with 2 extra BB followers for the magazine! - Trigger takeup is long as expected but has minimal stacking breaks quite cleanly in double action IMO. Single action nice and short. Also the obligatory pictures, I'm still figuring out how to disassemble the inner frame from the polymer outer frame. I've nudged the safety out which causes the inner frame to wobble in and out however I can't seem to get the entire assembly worked out... a LOT of inner meta frame, extends most of the length of the polymer frame: Front sight is dove-tailed in!! No screw underneath. Rear BBU screws into frame as usual, offset of the slide and is flush... However the rear sight is still screwed in, and dovetailed. The rear sight is also concaved since it sits right on top of the piston. All these differences probably makes it hard to use a real rear sight if possible at all.... The blowback unit. The piston is secured to the unit by this long spring and detent which is sandwiched by the frame. If you remove the detent and spring, the piston freely comes out. Piston 15mm as advertised The point the slide stop engages on is metal! Not only that but it is at an angle, meaning any wear will start at the sharpest point on the bolt catch. very ingenious design. Also because its metal, it is a removable piece. New slide stop unactivated: Slide stop activated Unfortunately, the slide catch is not 100% realistic, since lever should go all the way through to the right hand side. The Marui's left catch only goes about 80% through the frame. As you can see the rod on the right side is a dummy. Real right lever for reference: http://www.hkparts.net/shop/pc/catalog/HKPP2062-250.jpg Recoil spring guide! There is a good solid rubber buffer and a thick rubber oring/pad on the rear side. There is also a plastic buffer insert on the front side of the gun. Wear prevention? L->R: Metal bushing -> Plastic bushing insert -> Recoil spring -> Plastic buffer -> Rubber oring -> Guide rod retainer Barrel assembly Hop up accessible without slide disassembly! and of course I have to post the shot with the Noveske K9.
  5. From the album: BST Works

    This is our BST valve-nest for Tokyo Marui M870. The stock valve-nest isn't seal properly so we redesigned it with a lot nice and nice function. - New sealing design. The valve-nest has much better and bigger contact are which cause better sealing even with HPA. - It has a spring guide for the hammer spring. - Made from copper by hand-working. The size is perfect, we spent a lot energy to reach the best design - this is the third version. The third version tested with HPA, it is run 7 month without any leaking in TM Breacher.

    Tokyo Marui M9A1

    Skin Deep/At a Glance: FPS: Circa 280 w/0.20g BB, depending on weather WEIGHT: A reasonable 0.73kg ACCURACY: Equal to Marui 1911/Hi-Capa/PX4 CONSISTENCY: Provided you don't shoot too fast, it's perfect RELIABILITY: Pull this from your holster and this will do the job, everytime! ECONOMY: By the time it lands you're looking at €200. Running costs are negligible, and considering how long this will last it's money well spent. In-Depth: The M9A1 is one of the latest pistols released from Tokyo Marui, and is easily one of the most anticipated - it marks a seminal moment in their history; they updated one of their designs, using everything they've learned since they released their first M9 pistol, quite a ways back. Being a huge fan of the Beretta M9, I for one couldn't believe it and so the moment it was released I'd put in my order from WGC Shop. So what's the fuss about? Well, as I've said already I've had this pistol from pretty much the moment it came out, and have held off doing a review until such a time as I had sufficiently put it through its paces - what's the point in merely giving initial impressions? I figured I'd wait until I could tell you what it's like to use it Some basic history for those who aren't aware - the original Marui M9, is one of the oldest pistol designs around. It had a fixed hop up which lent itself perfectly to shooting straight for circa 20 meters, and then dropping dead all of a sudden. TM's original offering for the M9 was a light-weight plastic gun that relied solely on the magazine to add weight and substance to the pistol, giving it a rather hollow feeling. Of course the clones offered metal bodies for more substance, as well as using a small grub screw to create an adjustable hop up, which in a rather rare situation made them more attractive to some people. The problem was of course that green gas + metal slides doesn't really get on too well, especially in the cold. With the advent of KJW's Co2 M9, pretty much all others became obsolete - you got proper feedback for the first time, as well as an unmerciful bang. Of course KSC had already come out with their own M9, which was vastly superior to all other green gas versions featuring a functioning decocker, as well as far more accurate weight distribution and better balance. Its downfall was simply that the magazines were stupidly expensive (€50 each), as well as the not-so-good ball-bearing hop up. It was in drastic need of a redesign. Many speculated that it would happen, though when TM released a 15th Anniversary Biohazard Samurai Edge (Chris Redfield edition), it seemed like that day had come. It had been rumoured to have adjustable hop up...it didn't. All hope seemed lost. Then all of a sudden Tokyo Marui redesigned their website, announced a GBB MP7 and released a revised M9A1. Godzilla was smiling, apparently (Sorry...couldn't resist )! So what's changed since then? The M9A1 is still plastic; that hasn't changed. What has changed however is that TM have taken what they've learned from the PX-4 and put in a functioning ambidextrous de-cocker; when you flick the gun onto safe, the hammer drops. For any fans of the M9 this is an important feature to replicate, as well as being far more practical. On top of that they've had a go at fixing the weight distribution and balance of the pistol, using the same technique they use with their 1911's i.e. via the addition of weights in the grips, however they have also added a weight on the inner barrel. It works, exceedingly well. The gun feels as good with the magazine out as it does with the mag in. It also now has the lower picatinny rial indicative of the M9A1, which enables you to add any lasers or torches etc if you are so inclined. The plastic rail is durable, so no problems there. Marui M9A1 seen with White-Dot front & rear sights, adjustable hop up (requires partial disassembly) and the pistol field stripped (note grey weight added around inner barrel) So it's now better balanced, better functioning, and if you're a fan of the M9A1 over the traditional M9, then it is better looking as well (especially given the markings engraved into the plastic - this pistol looks very good), but all of that is purely an ancillary bonus; it is only when you strip the pistol do you really see it. You now have the impressive Tokyo Marui adjustable-wheel hop up in the body of an M9A1. It might sound like hokum, but it means that this pistol will now be more accurate than your rifle. You point, you shoot, and you hit...that's all there is to it. There is no skill involved...this pistol does all of the work for you, and it is a work horse. It is important to remember that Tokyo Marui are a Japanese company, and are forced to design their guns with the 1 joule limit in mind. Since they are working under restrictions, they innovate like no other. They invented the hop up system, and no one does it quite like they do. The quality of materials they use is what sets TM apart from the rest; high quality brass barrels for range, soft hop up rubbers sourced exclusively for performance at one joule. For sidearms in Ireland, you really shouldn't look any further than TM. Note Marui's realistic imitation trademarks They're a nice touch, look realistic and are completely inoffensive It all sounds fantastic, right? Well it is, but don't get me wrong it is not all roses. Thanks to the plastic slide it is economic on the green gas magazines, but it does still suffer from the fatal flaw of the M9-style green gas magazines; shallow gas reservoir. Rapid shots cause the pressure to drop pretty quickly, rendering your gun useless unless you have another magazine to slap in. Even though the plastic is a necessary evil, it is still an evil aspect - try as you might, plastic does not feel like metal, and it can be a large obstacle to overcome. KSC's M9 feels infinitely better than TM's, although there is no doubting that the Tokyo Marui M9A1 beats it around the park every day of the week in performance...sometimes it's not all about how it shoots. Propellant-wise, TM's are only rated for 134a. However I've been running it off of green gas without a single issue. Remember it's designed for 134a in Japan, where 15* C is considered cool, and 35* C is a summers day...we're in Ireland where 15* C causes everyone to strip into summer clothes and go to the beach. Green gas is fine, though when it gets in to the teens (temperature) use with caution, as the pressure is greater which causes more stress on the gun, and at the time of writing there are no aftermarket parts. Due to the plastic slide you get excellent performance from the gas, easily emptying the full load of BB's (especially when using the TM mags). When it is colder, you need to be a little more conservative - rapid shots drop the pressure quickly, so if you're fast on the trigger make sure you have spare magazines to compensate for cool down. Which brings me beautifully onto another excellent point of the TM M9A1 - it uses the same magazines as previous TM-system M9's (e.g. WE, HK3P, KJW, HFC etc) which are very easy to come by. I have personally used this gun on TM magazines, KJW magazines, HK3P mags, WE mags and HFC mags. TM perform the best, then KJW, followed by WE/HK3P. HFC sucked, but I've never liked those anyway. If you have the spare monies go straight for the TM variants; better quality valves straight from the box. KJW do the job nicely, but can do with some TLC out of the box. Now, with the above in mind comes the contradiction. One of the more disappointing things about this gun is the lack of a magazine redesign. Yes it's great that it is backwards compatible, especially considering I already had 11 M9 mags...but with the improvements they made to the P226 magazine, I kind of expected more. The thing to remember is that the magazines are smaller than a hi-capa which means they're more susceptible to cool down, so rapid-fire performance is not going to be as good, but it will still be better than the single stack 1911. Accuracy is no surprise for any of those familiar with TM; this gun is a laser beam - it's on par with the PX4, but not as good as the Five SeveN (which still has my vote on most accurate). It is extremely consistent, though due to being green gas it does suffer cool down thus affecting consistency in rapid fire situations (pressure drop drastically reduces FPS, which can negatively impact on accuracy). In perfect circumstances this pistol is extremely consistent, but does take some getting used to for those coming from Co2, or larger capacity green gas guns (such as glock extended magazines etc). Ergonomics of the gun are nice - if you're a fan of single-stack 1911's, then this will feel a little obese to you, but once you're used to it, it's a dream to hold and shoot. Weight balance and distribution is excellent, and thankfully it doesn't feel like plastic while holding it. Recoil is nonexistent - sure the slide moves, but you don't feel it at all. It looks great, but if you're a fan of the KJW Co2 M9 (which I am), you can't help but feel a little disappointed...though that fades immediately as you realise that this gun is a force to be reckoned with; the shots you can make are incredibly impressive. So in summary - do you like the M9? Do you skirmish? Do you use a pistol? If yes, then buy the TM M9A1 and you will not regret it. If you don't skirmish, pick yourself up a KSC M9 as you'll not need to worry about its shortcomings, and can instead enjoy the enhanced feel of the metal body.
