hi everyone, welcome to the Lair today with a new BB-gun overview coming straight from Tokyo Marui Japan the HK416 Delta Custom thanks a lot to Stéphane who bought the gun at Impulse101 and had it sent to the Lair you guys are psychopaths, don’t do that! well, what made me accept is the fact that this is a nice gun and I won’t need to strip it to the bone because I’ve done this with the HK417 this gun costs 55500 Yens on Impulse101 web shop of course that’s without taking into account all the taxes and shipping fees it is not a cheap replica if I’m not mistaken, this is the third next-gen HK416 from Marui wait a minute, the fourth ! they released the HK416D then the DEVGRU custom and the HK416C which you could see on the Lair the 416 Delta is a “custom” gun inspired after the famous special forces unit the Delta logo is on the box, on the manual a very classy box, it is often the case with Marui guns protected by polystyrene blocks glued inside the lid and everything is tidy the gun itself bound with Velcro straps and the accessories are inside nice boxes many different things in that box here’s some document about the battery be aware that the battery is not included with the bundle and if you need to buy some, the gun uses specific SOPMOD NiMh batteries I don’t like these.
.. there are a few practice targets here’s a proprietary battery it goes inside the Crane stock I’m not a fan NiMh batteries are part of the past now and many times I’ve had problems with those the gun wouldn’t shoot any more because of the lack of power it doesn’t cycle well and then you must remove the motor and turn the gears using a screwdriver to me, this is crap the good news is that Stéphane has bought an Option no1 adaptor I made a video about that a few years ago it replaces the original contact rods, which are not really good and you can use regular Tamiya mini I use a 7.
4V LiPo avoid 11.1V LiPos or spamming the trigger with 7.4V if you don’t want to break your gun back to the content of the box with the users’ manual once again the Delta logo of course it is written in Japanese but also in English, yay! it covers every important aspect of the gun and of course there is a parts list so you can order specific parts if they break down next, the usual BB sachet an Allen key and a front sight adjusting tool the Allen key is to be used with these screws to attach those rails to the handguard two short rails and a longer one made of anodized aluminium burnt bronze we’ll install them later there’s also a safety tip apparently it is split on purpose the BB-loader and the cleaning rod it is always nice to have a cleaning rod, if only every gun maker would put one of these in their boxes! this is the specific adaptor to charge SOPMOD batteries Marui included stickers to put on the battery so the overall color of the gun remain bronze you won’t have two black spots sticking out of the stock this is a good idea and of course there’s a next-gen magazine STANAG type with AR15 markings as every Next Gen M4/416/417/scar there is a system preventing the gun from firing when there’s no more BBs in the mag then you’ll insert a fresh mag, tap the bolt lock and resume shooting those are 30/82-round magazines there’s a small switch to set the amount of BBs you want to fill depending on your type of game the external shell is made of metal they are sturdy and they cost around 2750 Yens apiece this is not too expensive and they are durable be aware that regular M4 mags are not compatible except if you use a specific adaptor I’m done with this overview see you soon in the Lai.
.. ooops, I haven’t talked about the gun yet here it is, quite heavy it is mostly made of aluminium alloy except for the grip and the stock even the sights are made of metal it shines with a nice bronze colour this is not something we are used to seeing with Marui a very nice piece of gun I’d seen it on pictures and I wasn’t really excited but once you hold it, it is beautiful I’m in love with the handguard! of course it is a 416D platform it is written right here there are the whole HK markings even if Marui doesn’t own the licence, I think the Japanese don’t give a damn about licences real markings here on the magazine well those are moulded receivers not CNC-machined I can’t tell if it is painted or anodized alloy it looks anodized but I’m no expert it is a bit grainy I won’t scratch it because the owner won’t be happy there are also legal airsoft markings notice the ambidextrous fire selector three positions the different positions are crisp so it shouldn’t move by itself in game the trigger guard is classic but you can detach it if you wear thick gloves and Marui installed the Tango Down pistol grip here thinner than the battle grip from the regular 416D the dust cover is painted when you pull the charging handle, it flips down but the bolt catch doesn’t work so you need to pull the handle to adjust the serrated hop-up you can adjust the hop-up very accurately and it won’t move when you shoot something I dislike on this gun but it’s Delta ! is the Crane stock but it is personal, I don’t fancy the design but it looks “American” though there are 6 different positions so you can adapt the length of the gun according to your size this is quite heavy, more than 3.
3kg with a length between 711 and 787 mm it is surprising that Marui hasn’t installed a sling ring on the buffer tube that’s too bad, many players like having a ring here but surprisingly there are two quick detach spots on the handguard it is a choice a choice I wouldn’t have made but they did it so let’s talk about this handguard, because it is gorgeous look at this! this time I guess it is a CNC-machined part with a Picatinny rail at the top of it and some kind of M-Lock on the remaining sides in the users’ manual they talk about M-Lock and Keymode, but I can’t read Japanese I don’t own M-lock accessories but I’ll try installing Keymode accessories in the written review here’s the screw holding the handguard but this is limited to airsoft use there are nice markings here this is a free-floating rail meaning is does not touch the outer barrel and here is the nice flash hider I really like it the overall looks aggressive and compact, this is a 10.
5″ barrel these are the flip-up sights if you don’t like them, they can be detached the rear sight can be adjusted in height and windage and the front sight can be adjusted in height using the provided tool I’ll insert the magazine not bad aiming is easy but I know you guys will mount a red dot on this gun you may not like the color of this replica it is quite trendy to use bronze and FDE I think there’s a large public for this kind of design I talked about the additional rails before here they are simply screw them wherever you want on the handguard there are two short rails and one longer rail I can’t see what I’m doing here !! I’ll insert a Tokyo Marui specific battery in there remove the butt plate then the plug protection here’s the plug and the fuse insert the battery and put the butt plate back notice the black spots of the battery, hence the stickers in the box I hope it’ll work, I’ve charged the battery well, there’s not enough energy to shoot.
.. I hate those! Let’s install Option No1’s adaptor and use a LiPo battery! here it is I’ll plug my 7.4V LiPo battery I hope it’ll unlock the gears sometimes you’ve got to remove the motor and release the anti-reversal latch because there’s not enough energy to release the piston nice very nice! there’s the recoil shock system with a weight moving back and forth it doesn’t feel as a real rifle but still, fun to use there’s also the blow back feature it makes a nice sound so people will duck! and if there’s no BBs left inside the mag, the gun will stop shooting insert a fresh mag, depress the bolt catch and resume shooting ! of course you can’t use this part with the adaptor so you’ll have to figure out how to hide the wires but I trust you on this this is an issue absent when using the regular HK416 stock because the butt plate is larger and there’s space to tidy the wires if you fancy E1 stocks, you can probably buy one let’s see how it looks be careful when removing the stock, pull the handle all the way so it doesn’t damage the connectors this is an awkward mix of colors and shapes but there are no wires sticking out of the stock tell me what you think of it I really like this custom well, you could rant that this is another 416 from Marui yep, but moulds cost a lot of money so I guess they want to make use of them they’ve made a new rail a few changes, but I’m sure they’ll sell many of those I haven’t chrono’ed the gun yet but I guess it’ll shoot around 295-305 FPS good range and accuracy but we’ll see that in the complete review to be released on the blog! if you’ve liked the video, thumb up if you haven’t, thumb down don’t hesitate to comment do you like this gun ? is it too expensive? stay polite, it is only a hobby well, I’ll go and shoot the gun see you soon on the Lair xoxo
