Well, here are a cruddy picture I took of my collection while everything was still in the house.



Top to bottom:

Booster tuned Kokusai Crimebuster (currently shipped back to Booster for a couple spring replacements)

Tanaka M24 PCS (Currently SPF)

BAR-10 upgraded incredibly (full laylax) Shooting 563 FPS with about 300' of range. Amazing rifle.

Kokusai Crimebuster which is currently disassembled (no engine in pics) for a project.

MGC G18 Ridiculous ROF on duster gas, horrible accuracy, rare as hell.

Stay away from Tanaka if you want your mentality!! Tanaka's will drive you crazy from the issues you'll run into!
I regret I didn't buy the last Crimebuster I run into...!

Great looking collection man

I actually really like the Tanaka system, I think that the main problem is the lack of upgrades for all the parts that really need them. If you can get someone to machine the parts for you, I think the system itself has great potential.

Tanaka's are made of cheap pot metal and it's only a matter of time before something breaks!
I've owned 2 so far and I have some experience.
If you search in the Gallery section you'll see a thread about Reezo's M40. Look and you'll see what happened to his Tanaka M40!!
These incredibly overrated guns I have a friend from Korea and he said that Tanaka's there have the worst name!! And he mentioned the fact that they break pretty easy!

I've owned this tanaka for about 2 years now, have taken it down enough times to know the whole system like the back of my hand. I think the system itself is a well thought-out system, but the construction methods and materials were not up to par. If one can rebuild the system with CNC'ed hardened steel parts one will have a very reliable gun.

I don't believe they are airtight, and they don't need to be. The M16A2 V-match version just uses a different magazine design and nozzle length.

The second Crimebuster is actually getting put into a V2 mechbox and given an ER-hop treatment.

Alright, I thought they were the kokusai BV mags for a minute there...

You WILL need a mill for that. I cracked mine open, and the V2 gearbox is very very hollowed out. Besides, it might be cool to try a v3, or something. Maybe a v6 (?), then you can put it into a PSG-1!

Can I have the old body for the crimebuster after you transplant the engine? Just a bit of nostalgia...

I'll need to find someone to make a new air nozzle, I'm actually not sure how much I'll need to take off for the AEG conversion, I measured the engine body as being significantly smaller in diameter than an AEG cylinder. I do have a source for a plastic V2 to fiddle with until I figure out how to do it.

I would say yes for the body, but I want it for the same reason lol
