Tokyo Marui - Glock 17

As with all the other Tokyo Marui GBB's I own, the Glock 17 is to the same high standards as we've come to expect from TM. It's have mostly authentic trademarks, except for a TM/ASGK "Made In Japan" on the body. Unfortunately I bought this Glock locally in the U.S. so trades were defaced. So I added the Guarder Enhanced Full Kit for TM G17.

The Guarder Enhanced Full Kit for TM G17 is a pretty straight forward install, but needs some filing for the slide to cycle smoothly. The kit has full trademarks and includes:

  • Fiber Reinforced Polymer Frame
  • Aluminum Slide
  • Steel Outer Barrel
  • Recoil Spring Guide
  • 150% Hammer Spring
  • Steel Magazine Catch
  • Steel Trigger Lever
  • Serial Number Plate

With the kit installed, the TM Glock feels very close to its' real steel counterpart. While usually installing a metal slide causes a decrease in ROF, the Guarder kit has a nice balance of weight and has only effect slide cycle speed a little.
