Differing Opinions

So, I was browsing the Tube recently and watching some KickingMustang videos, and he was using an upgraded Tanaka M700 in one of them.

It looks pretty damn accurate to me. I've always been interested in a Tanaka rifle, specifically the M24, cuz it's goddamn fucking sexy.

SniperMechanics also says that the Tanaka M700 series are accurate and consistent on green gas.
But everything I've seen on this forum tells me that they are dogshit without a HPA rig, which I'm not interested in getting because I already have a Wolverine BOLT'ed VSR. So, are they worth my money?

Oh wow a thread I can actually weigh in on! WOOT!

They are fun rifles, though not the most gas efficient, and rather dated design wise. Finding replacement parts could be a problem. Like the hopup rubber for example, and spare valve strikers.

My Kar98 will do 700 on GG and decent reliably at that, considering its a 10rnd mag.

Most of the info here generally regards the KJW clone. But with long mags you should be fine with GG.

I've done just about everything to my M40A1, including HPA tap- though I now use it as a spare, on propane. It honestly shoots incredibly well...like, concerningly well- so well that when I first took it out recently after years of storage - focusing instead on my newer VSR/Bolt build - to let my brother use it for a day, I started wondering if it was shooting better than my VSR build! Thank god, after tuning both to the same power using the same BBs, my VSR is slightly better. Lol.
This forum is...kind of ridiculous. I love it- but I am also ridiculous. If you stay too long here, you might think a platform is "dogshit", but what "dogshit" means here is probably just "technically speaking it has a lower performance ceiling than many other platforms"; what that leaves out is that you probably won't actually reach that performance ceiling...with maybe any platform.
Tanakas can be incredible. Take a look at Lee Wade and Hunteering on Facebook, making absurdly, ridiculously long shots USING GREEN GAS (the ABSOLUTE mad man)!
