Tokyo Marui airsoft Glock 17 GBB pistol review by LaZouche Custom.
Yes its finally happened, ive gone 'Tupperware'. I bought a secondhand TM Glock 17 with additional magazines and...well...it works fine.
OK you need alittle more... well its a Tokyo Marui so its bullet proof, reliable, accurate (so ive been told) and easy to use. No external safety's, no wood polished grip panels and...no character....Ok Ok im sorry. Its as the old saying goes " it does exactly what it says on the tin". Pull the trigger and BBs will fly with boring regularity and low gas usage, which is a boon.
The build quality is good. The feel is a bit to big in the hand for me but I have small hands. Its equivilent to a TM Hi-capa in grip size. The magazines load and drop out cleanly, holding 28 BBs or so. The gas reseviour is ample to shoot all rounds without a 'drop off' in power or 'freeze up' (winter temps may be a problem, ive yet to test).
The original gun came with two, yes two, sets of sights. One is that fitted, a white dot on the fore sight and a white squared out rear (which i don't like). The others are 3 dot night sights.
The slide and frame are both ABS plastic. Markings seem pretty accurate to the real steel pistol, except for the ASGK and TM logos.
Im not a Glock guy but yes im liking it so far. If your thinking of a Glock or just want a decently reliable airsoft pistol to skirmish with then you can feel safe in purchasing the TM Glock 17. Its sister pistol by TM, the semi/auto G18c, is also a nice weapon and who knows I may yet go for that one aswell ;-)
I will do an update on the pistol when I have used it more and post the results. So stay tuned and let it not be said im bias to the 'Tupperware' brigade lol.
