Tanaka Sig 226 Navy silenced. Had some problems with firing which came down to a number of things. First the mag follower needed lubrication as it was sticking so not feeding the rounds well. Next the det pin got dirty very quick (as the pic shows) a combination of the marushin caps and silicone lubrication, which meant rounds got a bit stuck on the pin causing feed problems.
Then and this I cannot figure the rounds that failed to fire the piston in the round had not been pushed down onto the cap, the round chambered fine and obviously the other rounds were working fine, so still cannot figure why the piston was not pushed down.
Other than that the silencer is a nice addition, it might be my imagination but i think the silencer does damp down the crack a bit, but maybe not!

Claymore- I always look forward to you posting up new firing videos!!!!

I like the silencer addition! Looks movie ready now!

I have considered adding some suppressors to some models I have, but I've been a little concerned about potential breakages.

It does look like you might have some light strikes on the rounds causing them to not fire. The Tanaka rounds can be "stiff" in my experience - even if well lubricated. I'm not sure what version cartridges you have in that model and I don't have any experience with their newest cartridge design.

Have you tried the CTec mild Kick 9mm rounds? I much prefer these anodized aluminum rounds in my 9mm models so far. They use 7mm caps in the traditional cartridge design, and aren't as fiddly as the Tanaka cartridges. You may have to make your own detonator to try them though if one isn't available from CTec.

Keep that video camera rolling!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

ljerr2, yrs ago i bought the 93r silencer for the airsoft model, you had a little screw that went through the silencer and screwed onto the barrel, it did not work!! the bloody thing blew off every time i tried, first round and the screw was mullering the barrel so i gave up.
having a custom barrel made by the company is great, i have a few airsoft silencers and may give them a go, but i thought getting the silencer tanaka made for the model would be the best choice.

A great video yet again Claymore  Very Happy


My own Tanaka silencer and spare barrel arrived from shazhib last week (Thank you shazhib!)
I bought Tanaka's P226 Mk25 threaded barrel version from John at PFCGUK a while ago. Mine has the Flat Dark Earth slkide and black frame. 
Initially, Tanaka weren't supplying spare threaded barrels! Shazhib thought it might be a marketing ploy to make folks buy new Mk25 models rather than convert their older P226s. Shortly after I bought a couple of spare standard, unthreaded barrels Tanaka announced their Barrel and Silencer set!


This is my second semi-automatic pistol from Tanaka. All those reports of fragile models, regular breakages etc put me right off but reports of much better quality and durability saw me buy their DE 50AE and then this P226 shortly afterwards. 
I'm impressed, very impressed. So far, I've had no problems firing mine using Tanaka's EVO2 carts. (Red boxed) and MG 5mm caps.

Two magazines let me fire 30 in quick succession without a single miss fire or feed / extraction problem.
Your video shows your Det. pin after 36 shots. Really heavy fouling! Using silicone grease as a cart. lubricant would foul up det.pins on my models like that but after about 60 shots (SMGs). I use WD40 Specialist Silicone Lube Spray oil now which works a treat. It doesn't leave a thick heavy deposit on the pins so it's fewer stoppages.


Keep your videos coming Claymore  cheers

Cerwyn, yep i used to use just silicone spray or oil, i stopped using oil as it was very smelly and nasty to breath in but the spray worked fine. However when i got the tanio blowback liquid and it worked fine i thought i would try making my own by using silicone grease and mixing with spray as that seemed to be what tanio's was.
its obvioulsy gumming up the det pin very fast but i will experiment a bit more and see if i need to add more spray to the mix. if that does not work i will go back to just the spray.

Hi mate,
the rounds with piston not fully down sound like air lock ! as that would allow the piston to rise a little by the time you look at it, sealing too well lol Smile

Johnnyv, yeah that is possible, some of the pistons did need a good push to get them in, i will keep that in mind next time.
