The latest offering from Tokyo Marui, the PX4 offers some new features to their GBB line. Built on a compact frame, it is a welcome addition to players familiar with gun types such as the M9, SIG 226, Hi-Capa 4.3, and USP Compact.
Immediately, you will see that it comes with 2 extra back plates for the lower frame to fit almost any shooter’s hand for a better shooting position and comfort. To change out the back plates, the player would depress a button near the bottom of the magazine well, then, pulls the back plate away from the rear of the gun. The player may now attach a different back to suit their needs.
Velocity is on par for a compact type pistol from TM.
Testing was conducted with King Arms Green Gas and Excel .20g BB’s.
A Radar type chronograph was used to measure shots in an air conditioned space.
Measurements as follows:
Shot 1: 302fps
Shot 2: 300
Shot 3: 292
Shot 4: 298
Shot 5: 293
Shot 6: 285
Shot 7: 282
Shot 8: 281
Shot 9: 278
Subsequent shots hovered within the 278-285 range with Green Gas.
On 134A gas velocity ranged from 240 on the first shot to 220 with the magazine starting to cool noticeably.
Recoil is snappy and short, comparable to the Cappa4.3 and SIG226, but not as strong as the Desert Eagle and Five7 series guns from Marui.
Accuracy is TM consistent, the target was with the gun straight out of the box. Shooting was with .20g Excel, with King Arms Green Gas. Targets were 8m away. Shooting was from a standing position with 2 hand support. (not scientific, but a more practical answer).
The PX4, being a compact design tends to shoot “flat” during snap-shooting and fast-draw situations. Balance is comparable to the USP Compact Pistol.
The safety also incorporates a de-cocking feature if the hammer is back in a ready position. Upon engaging the safety, it automatically releases the hammer to battery, this can be done with the magazine in and fully gassed.
The hop up is of a new design.
Removing the slide to access the hop system is no longer needed.
Access to the hop unit can be done with the slide locked in the back position. It is a dial type but fixed to the left side of the barrel and running parallel to the housing. It is colored a lighter grey for easier identification. Players with larger fingers or gloves may find this arrangement a little difficult to adjust the hop setting. Removing the slide to access the Hop is also a possibility.
Tokyo Marui Hop-up is the best in the industry and gives the PX4 farther range than many stronger pistols from different brands (KWA M9, WE Capa, Western Arms Infinity).
Field striping the PX4 is the same as a Glock type pistol.
There are two release tabs on the frame above the trigger guard, pull downwards, and push slide to separate from the frame.
Reliability is top notch as with all Marui guns, the gun was released in December (it's July as I post this) and none of the PX4's we sold have come back for repairs. Not even a broken slide yet.
For all the realism enthusiasts there are pretty nice insignias all over the gun, but nothing that says Beretta. The rotating breach does work much like the real one. This does nothing for performance but looks pretty cool.
In conclusion, the PX4 seems to go along with the same lines as other compact pistols. Great as a sidearm, and offering some new features not found on many of Tokyo Marui’s other pistols, it would be a worthy addition to a player’s load-out.
While the lack of aftermarket parts may hinder it immediately, if it is like the rest of TM’s line, players will not have to wait long to start customizing to their hearts content.
