Tokyo Marui Biohazard / Resident Evil Samurai Edge Std. Mod Airsoft Gun Review

airsoft_samurai_edge_std_-_gunYou can apparently get an Airsoft gun, depending on the type, for fairly cheap. And then there’s the Tokyo Marui guns which are accurate even to the feel of the weight in some cases. They cost a bit more. In fact, while I was impulse-buying this beauty, my cousin said, “You know, for the price, you could almost just buy a real beretta…” Quite true, but real berettas don’t say “S.T.A.R.S” and “RPD” on them. Just saying. It’s spring-loaded, so everything clicks in place. The safety works. The slide slides. The ammo clip release is in the same spot as a real gun. When you pull the slide back, it locks in place til you pull the trigger. Again, I don’t know a lot about guns, so I can’t say exactly how accurate any of this is–but you could certainly fool me with it.

Let me just start this review off by saying that I have never used a real firearm in my life. I’m sure the process of picking one up and getting it ready to fire is quite easy. That being said, I still really have no interest in owning a real gun. This is about as far as I’ll go. AND LET ME TELL YOU, THIS IS FUCKING AWESOME!!!

As a huge Resident Evil fan, this gun is sweet. Again, I’ve never actually fired a real handgun, so I don’t know how accurate this thing is, but you could certainly fool me with it. Well, minus the massive amount of orange paint that was on the tip. This is placed there as a legal matter since these are so realistic that they could easily be mistaken for real guns. It made the gun look gaudy and dumb. Very fake, which is the purpose.

Of course, with some google-love, I was able to find an article that said the easiest way to remove the paint was mineral spirits, or paint thinner, goo gone, or nail polish remover. I read some that said that nail polish was only a good idea if the such-and-so was metal, but not on plastic. Who knows. I went with nail polish remover and it worked pretty well. But let me tell you, for as well as it works, it’s not a magic “orange-removing chemical” you have to really work at this to get the paint out of some of the nooks and crannies. Mine still has some orange on it in those hard to reach areas. I’m actually considering going over some of the areas with some flat black or gunmetal black paint just to get rid of that orange.

This airsoft gun is exactly as you’d expect it. It says “Racoon Police – S.T.A.R.S” on the handle engravings. On the slide it says “Mod. Samurai Edge. Law Enforcement Only” on one side, and “S.T.A.R.S. RPD Special Team” on the other. I really couldn’t ask for a more accurate piece of work without owning a real gun. My hat’s off to Tokyo Marui for this excellent airsoft gun.


  • Very accurate.
  • Very awesome!
  • Fun to play around with.


  • Nearly as much as a real gun ($150)
  • Might get you shot for real.
  • Not very useful against real zombies.
