Hi!

So, im clearly very new to the sniper part of airsoft. My idea for a couple of months have been a m82 cuz it's so badass. But since it's so expensive, I will delay that thought. What I have stumbled on is the tanaka m40 =) I like U.S.M.C too :p

(http://www.redwolfairsoft.com/redwo...anaka_Tanaka_U_S_M_C_M40_with_Scope_Mount.htm)

Is this any good? (pros/cons)?

I heard alot of tanaka m700 to, but i want to know the difference.

I have alot of questions, but starting with some. (need to wake up about 5 hours ... -.- ' )

(Is tanaka the leading in sniper rifles? )

the tanaka m40 is a pretty cool weapon;tanaka has been known to produce high quality gas rifles;the finish is superb;full length;and has a solid feel;also prepare for the upgrade parts this gun will need;

The Tanaka's are good but being made of pot metal doesn't help in the durability part.
The hop up housing WILL break and they also have issues, I've worked on 4 and all had issues, the trigger box is a nightmare to work on, you'll need upgrades right out of the box to make it skirmishable which are pretty pricey.
Read a few threads at the Tanaka section ...

The tanakas are good rifles if you have the time,money and know how to get them shooting well.Very few rifles have as good a feel as a tanaka.

For the best over all gun, a TM vsr or g-spec cant be beaten I would say.They feel bait cheaper,due to the weight.But preform better than any gun,when stock or upgraded.

All the tanaka rifles are the same internally its just looks, personally I'm not keen on the standard m700 stock as its a lot wider than say the m40.

As for the upgrades do them your self they will charge more for less bits,if you do it yourself you can be sure whats fitted.

You only need a 430mm barrel at most,this will require drilling out the silencer end cap though.
Spring guide is a good idea but not 100% needed,what ever people say.(I would get one if you can though)

The trigger unit is great, but you can go cheaper and just buy the piston and sears. But the zero trigger will give a smoother bolt pull due to the 90 degree sears

A sp150 laylax spring should get 500-550fps with good compression.

Only get the laylax hop chamber if you want to use age barrels,I would stick with the stock chamber.

The cylinder and bolt handle are not needed,just extras if you have the cash.
The cylinder head again isn't a must,I've always ran the stock one,but i taper the back myself and add dampeners or a large o-ring.

This mean the barrel will go out of the silencer ?
