Tokyo Marui started out as a Japanese toy manufacturer before eventually moving into the airsoft space. In 1992, Tokyo Marui revolutionized the airsoft market by introducing the first airsoft guns in the world to be powered by an electric motor.  Before this innovation, all airsoft guns had to be cocked manually before each shot, or be attached to a huge external gas tank using a hose, which was cumbersome and unrealistic. Tokyo Marui's electric airsoft guns, though, allowed for both semi-auto and full-auto fire, making them an instant hit among airsoft players. 

Today, Tokyo Marui is still renowned for producing some of the best airsoft guns on the market and is the leading innovator of new technologies in Airsoft guns.  Tokyo Marui Airsoft guns can also be easily modified thanks to the large number of companies that make aftermarket parts for them.  This makes Tokyo Marui Airsoft guns the easiest to modify amongst top Airsoft Brands.  We share our 2021 Top Ten list of Tokyo Marui airsoft guns below.

10. Tokyo Marui Vorpal Bunny AM. 45 Version Llenn GBB Pistol

Price: $319.99

FPS: 280 

Model: 1911

An anime-inspired take on the classic 1911, this eye-catching pistol makes for a flamboyant yet highly reliable and accurate sidearm. Its 19-round capacity far surpasses that of an actual 1911, giving this gun all of the advantages that a 1911 offers without the signature drawback of not having as high of an ammo capacity.  Limited supply and hard to find at times make this a desirable collectible.  And if past experience means anything, second-hand trading prices for anime or game based Tokyo Marui airsoft pistols tend to be higher.

Pros

  • Collectible Appeal
  • High Ammo Capacity for a 1911
  • Potential Investment Value

Cons

  • More suited for Cosplay instead of realistic gaming and requires camouflage
  • Plastic Construction Due to Japanese Laws Preventing Full Metal Pistols
  • A Style That May Not Be Appealing to Users Wo Prefer Realistic-Looking Guns
