Everyone knows the Tokyo Marui Hi-Capa 5.1 is one of most reliable, accurate and consistent GBB pistols out there. They aren’t wrong, as every manufacturing company known for making spare parts have always custom designed an accessory for the Hi Capa. Now, Tokyo Marui release their Gold Match version.
So what has changed? The slide has new serrations that make cycling very smooth. The frame now comes with an already attached picatinny rail for accessories and a new slanted cut for aesthetics. They have extended the slide release making it easier to release the slide without having to break your hand away from a shooting position. It includes a red fiber front making easier for target acquisition.
One thing that sticks out like a sore thumb are the golden parts, such as the trigger, outer barrel, thumb safety, screws and hammer. This is purely for aesthetic reasons but it does make the Hi Capa more like an actual Race Gun.
Internally, it’s very much the same. The hop up can be found once you remove the slide. In terms of accuracy, you can always expect the best out of Tokyo Marui but the Hi Capa, young and old, takes the cake. It does not have the have the hardest kick in the world but it’s so incredibly snappy that target acquisition after every shot is easy.
