The Japanese Tokyo Marui is considered as the role model in airsoft and perhaps the most high-quality manufacturer in the whole world. Marui makes guns which perform excellently and which shoot very far and accurately, thanks to the excellent hop-up, even though the muzzle velocity is under 100 m/s (1 joule). The low muzzle velocity is regulated by the Japanese legislation. Thanks to the excellent hop-up, Tokyo Marui guns work well in both indoor and outdoor games and, thanks to the Japanese quality, you can trust that they will endure for a very long time!
The M14 is a well known US military rifle. The SOCOM model on the other hand is a little shorter and a more tactical version of the standard M14 rifle, which is why it is more suitable for airsoft. This gun that fires semi-auto and full auto fire offers great performance and the over 400 mm inner barrel makes the gun very accurate. However, the gun is very compact compared to the full length M14 rifle. The SOCOM model is also a great base for a semi-automatic DMR rifle!
The gun comes with a mount for red dot sights and you can also use a standard M14 rifle sight mount with it. The stock of the gun is made of plastic and the rest of the body is metal so it has some great feel to it.
Remember to get a suitable battery and charger
Battery and charger are not included with this gun. To make sure the warranty of your gun is valid, you may use 7.4V LiPo or 8.4V and 9.6V NiCd/NiMH batteries with a maximum capacity of 3100mAh. Using a battery with a higher nominal voltage or capacity voids the warranty.
Are you not sure which battery fits in your gun? Check the nickel battery compatibility table in Tradetech.
Each gun individually tested by us:
The functionality of all our guns is tested and the muzzle velocity measured before shipping. The velocity is measured with a 0.20 g BB and the final muzzle velocity is calculated from the average of five (5) shots. In fact, the muzzle velocities you see in our online shop are approximations reported by the supplier or manufacturer. Thus, the actual muzzle velocity of your gun may differ from the approximation upwards or downwards. However, we always mark the final muzzle velocity on the maintenance and user manual provided with the gun.
