The P226 is the weapon of choice for the special forces U.S.Navy Seals, and Tokyo Marui has done a great job replicating it for the airsoft world. It features a textured grip for superior handling, a functioning de-cocking lever, and double action trigger, making it incredibly realistic. It also has a tactical rail on the lower frame for the addition or lights, lasers, or other accessories. Overall, this P226 replica is both aesthetically pleasing, and great performing, so it is sure to please any player.
Superb gun! Not the best for everyone, but in terms of the balance of realism and practicality, this gun does very well. It is full plastic outer construction. Don't let that turn you away though because that means it takes less gas to push the slide back with each shot. It isn't an outrageous amount, but it's there. The plastic also keeps the weight down which is always a good thing in the field. You ask someone in the middle of the game what they wish they had more of, you'd have a hard time finding some that will say "More weight. Not that I had more or better equipment. My same equipment here, just heavier". In addition, TM has worked their magic on this gun so that it can shoot for miles. At least, it feels that way. I swear, TM hop-up's a made out of magic. Yes the fps is low, but that's part of the magic. You don't need 400+ fps and a full metal gun to be effective. Can it be effective? Yes, with the right setup. It's a bit like American Muscle Cars. Big, heavy, lots of power. TM's are like imports. Light, efficient, with less power, but my can they perform. So, much like the age old car battle, it comes down to what you prefer. For some, the plastic build and low FPS is a turn off. Fine. Do as you please. But, if what you want is a gas efficient, highly accurate, far shooting, light weight gbb that won't draw blood in cqb, look no further.
-TM magic hop-up
-Plenty of aftermarket parts
-No O-rings in fill valve
-Plastic construction can detract from realism
-Low fps means bb's don't travel as fast
