It's been a long time coming and it is finally here. This time around, Marui have beaten everyone to the punch. Marui may be known for clocking in low right out of the box but this one pushes it to the limit clocking in at 330 fps with green / top gas. This is Tokyo Marui we are talking about and this SW P9L is a beast! What makes it so special? You look at the body and notice that it's made out of plastic, as the real steel version is made out of polymer and it comes with the standard plastic slide. It comes with two additional grips for those with smaller or bigger hands, which is normal. What you see on this that you won't see on the others is a visible safety lever. You can find it on the same spot as the Hi-Capa and it's ambidextrous. This is something you won't usually find on the real steel version though it is possible to get one. Japanese laws dictate that a safety switch needs to be visible so we can't fault them for that and to be honest, it's actually very useful. The slide release is ambidextrous, you can find the magazine release protruding on the left side and there is a accessory rail up front for your lasers and flashlights. To find the hop up, you'd think you would need to remove the slide, but you don't as all you need to do is pull the slide back and in the breach, you can find the hop up spinning dial on the far side. How very useful! Let's get down to business. How does it feel when you pull the trigger? If I tell you that it feels like a Hi-Capa, will that be enough? Probably not, but what I can say is that it has a brutal kick and has the consistency of a Hi Capa which is saying a lot.
About Tokyo Marui:
Tokyo Marui Co. Ltd is an airsoft gun and toy cars manufacturer located in Adachi, Tokyo, Japan that produced the AEG. The guns are principally sold in Japan, but are also sold worldwide. They were the first company to produce airsoft guns powered solely by electric-motor driven air compressors, which they called "Automatic Electric Gun" (AEG) in 1992. This compact air compressing system was implemented in their first battery-powered automatic firing replica, the FAMAS F1. Other airsoft guns were then introduced. The AEG system is still in use, and has been copied numerous times through the years by many other airsoft gun manufacturers.
