Our old mates at LAYLAX have been in touch again to let us know all about one of their very special products, and this time it’s the Hi-CAPA 5.1 TDC THREADED OUTER BARREL!

This latest upgrade is a CNC Aluminium outer barrel compatible with Tokyo Marui Hi-CAPA 5.1 style gas blowback pistols, and it enables hop-up adjustments from the topside screw without the disassembly of the slide. The hop-up pressure is applied from the top centre of the chamber, enabling stable hop-up compared to conventional hop-up units.

The combination of rigid aluminium alloy construction and a non-tilting design allows for more consistent, accurate shots. The muzzle tip is threaded in 14mm CCW, compatible with various muzzle accessories, and they tell us that the fixing method has been improved to minimize outer barrel misalignment.

Once again LAYLAX continue to innovate and improve on even the most established of platforms, and we hope that we’ll be able to get one of these into one of our test-pool Hi Capas in the near future!
