Price and Availability
The Tokyo Marui VSR-10 has been around for several years now, and the price has been slowly but surely decreasing over time.
To put it into perspective, back in 2014 you'd be expected to dish out about $280 for one of these rifles, which is a bit high for many people. Nowadays you can buy the VSR-10 for around $40 less.
However, the high price should come as no surprise since you get what you pay for, and Tokyo Marui guns are known for their higher quality.
If you're concerned about the price, many people find the JG Bar-10 to be a cheaper alternative, although the quality is slightly under what you'd expect from the VSR-10.
The VSR-10 comes in at a length of 1075mm (42.32 inches), with the barrel length being 430mm (17 inches) long. One of the most appealing things about this rifle is how light it is, weighing a mere 2.09kg (4.6 lbs).
Clearly, you'll be able to navigate the airsoft field without tiring easily, giving yourself a slight advantage over other players.
The VSR-10 comes in three colors: black, imitation wood, and tan. Be prepared to shell out extra money for imitation wood and tan, as they can be up to $15 more expensive than black.
This rifle is able to withstand a beating if necessary, with most of the parts being made from metal. Some parts are still made from plastic, like the stock, trigger, and magazine.
The stock has a sling attachment located at the bottom for some additional convenience, and the butt pad is made from rubber. Overall, gripping the rifle should be comfortable, as the design is sleek yet ergonomic. On top of that, you'll be able to smoothly cock and pull the trigger as the VSR-10 is able to do both with ease.
You'll find two sights on the VSR-10. You unfortunately won't be able to adjust the front sight, but the rear sight is able to be adjusted left, right, up, and down. All you have to do is use the Allen wrenches (provided with the rifle) to adjust it your liking. One downside is that since the VSR-10 Pro has two sights, it does not come with a rail. You'll have to buy one separately if you want to attach a scope.
The trigger is adjustable, meaning you can adjust the trigger pull and/or the stroke. Again, you'll have to use the Allen wrenches to adjust it, but it's still fairly easy to do.
Out of the box, the VSR-10 has a pretty solid performance. Using .20g BBs, the VSR-10 has the ability to shoot around 300 FPS, which leaves a lot to be desired. Upgrade the internals as soon as you can (Spring, trigger, etc) in order to get the FPS closer to the more impressive 500-600 FPS. The accuracy is adequate, although upgrading the barrel is recommended so that you can improve it even further.
