The VSR-10 system was and remains to this day Tokyo Marui?s mainstay bolt action system and while others have been added over the years, the VSR-10 series continues to set the bar.
A stock power of 260 fps makes it less powerful then most rifles but with its high accuracy and shot-to-shot consistency it is capable of longer range effective shots then most AEGs of higher power. Of course if you drop in a higher powered spring of your choice, you can crank this thing up to even longer usable range.
This version features a heavy piston which means when it does shoot you can realy feel a shift in the weapon rather then just the light tap that occurs with lighter pistons. Bare in mind that with a decent hop-up like this one, even a little fps can go a long way so try not to get too hung up on the fps number. Switching to a lighter piston will allow a faster movement which increases FPS marginally on the same spring but it will remove the felt movement feature of the stock heavy piston.
The VSR-10 is a very light bolt action rifle system affording it high agility as well as competitive threat rating on the field. It looks good; maybe not as milspec as an L96 but certainly does a good job of filling a more personal tailored look; like many newer TM guns, it even has dummy rifling on the inside of the outer barrel to add a touch of realism. This newer version features more stylizing with the silver finish assembly and scope, the polymer bodies being available in black and brown in the different versions.
