Tokyo Marui MK23 SOCOM NBB
Few guns gain the level of infamy in both real steel and airsoft, but that is precisely what the Tokyo Marui MK23 has done.
In real steel, this gun was designed for special forces, to be as effective as possible, and with that had a whole host of features baked into it that 99% of the population would never utilise (e.g. an ability to lock the slide for a more silent shot).
In popular culture, this gun has a special place in peoples hearts due to its inclusion in Metal Gear Solid on the original Playstation, and that is the version replicated by Tokyo Marui. You get the pistol, a hard pistol case, silencer, and LAM unit. And unlike Solid Snake, you don't have to find all the components individually!
As a non-blowback gas powered pistol, that is as big as the MK23 SOCOM, there are a few things to note. Firstly, the magazine holds a lot of gas. Secondly, because the slide does not move during regular operation, the gas lasts much longer! It is quieter, especially with the silencer, than almost any other gun. It can be shooting right beside you, and you barely hear a thing. As such, it has carved its own niche as the dedicated sniper sidearm in airsoft, and for good reason!
Manufactured by Tokyo Marui, this pistol is accurate, near-silent, and a firm favourite of all whom use it
