PostSubject: Tanaka Glock - 3rd generation evo   Tue Sep 04, 2018 11:55 pm

Hey, so I am thinking about picking up a Tanaka Glock. One with a railed frame so that I can put flashlights on them. I was wondering if anyone had any prior experiences with one to help me decide if I should pick one up. I've seen some perform unreliably and break. Other times I've seen them run well, but I'm still not sure if it's worth the price. I'm sort of new with modelguns so please be patient with me!

Hi,

Welcome to the forum.

I don't have any experience with the Tanaka Glocks but I'm sure a fellow forum member will be able to help as there are a few in circulation.

There is a lot of discussion on the forum about Tanaka's, they did used to be well known for breaking especially the USP which has some very thin areas of plastic. The biggest problem was the round for some reason it really produced a lot of power and just put too much pressure on the plastic parts, the barrel in particular.
Tanaka fortunately over the last few yrs have made design changes to both round and guns and so now the new evolution models and rounds work well and dont break so they are a safe bet to buy. So yes the new model evo Glock should be fine and make sure its the new evo rounds you use and all should be well.
However as i tell everyone, these guns are made of plastic so if you use them it is possible something will break, thats the chance you take with plastic models but so far my evo Tanaka models are holding up well.

I'm a fan of the Tanaka models. They usually have very nice attention to detail as far as appearance.

Another nice thing about Tanaka is that if you get your hands on one, spare parts can be sourced for them, too. Big bonus for anyone who actually fires their models.

I have the Glock model and it didn't run well out of the box. It just took a little bit of work and now it purrs like a kitten!
