A question on Barrel recoil equipped tanks

Feel free to discuss anything and everything to do with tanking here!

Postby Ragnar » Thu Jul 11, 2019 2:49 pm

Seriously considering the purchase of the latest metal addition of Taigens Panzer IV with barrel recoil.
My question is will the barrel recoil work without the IR unit connected .and does the recoil work right out of the box on these RTR tanks.

If the ad says IR with barrel recoil then that is what you should get, all working out off the box.

Hi Larry.
The Taigen IR tanks don't usually come with the mushrooms, they are sold separately, unless the vendor puts one in as a special offer.
To answer your question, the IR tanks shouldn't need the mushroom to be installed for the recoil to work. A lot of people just have the recoil working that don't have an interest in IR battles.

Not sure how they do things in the UK, but if you buy a taigen tank in America it will come with an apple/mushroom. The barrel recoil will work fine with the mushroom installed or not. Right out of the box the Barrel recoil should be working. In fact, yesterday I ordered a new IR Panzer 4 so I'll get a little video when it arrive so you can see for yourself.

Thanks Gents that pretty much gives me the answers I was looking for.
Not really into battling just wished for the barrel recoil as opposed to track recoil.

You’ll love it. I have the Taigen airsoft barrel recoil and it is so cool to watch it recoil. I also have the track recoil turned off.

Yes, having the track recoil turned off makes the barrel recoil all the more realistic. All my Taigen and Torro tanks that are IR came with the apple/mushroom in the accessory box but not with BB versions. Makes sense!

As Larry is an American, and I'm guessing the tank will probably be purchased from Imex, I went with what they do re the infrared system.
On their listings, they say. . . . (At the bottom)

Good point! Funny though that my last couple of purchases came in an IMEX branded carton but still had the mushroom. Maybe, as you say, it's a UK dealer good service thing?

Answer...
Contact the vendor to check before buying!

Mind you, it's all academic, in this instance, the mushroom isn't required.

That's a mistake that has already been corrected. All Imex metal edition IR tanks come with an apple, plastic edition tanks do not. However, if you're a member at RCU and need an apple Erik will give you one for free.

My P4 will be here Monday so I'll do a box opening video and you can see if it's what you want, Larry.

Well, I took that screenshot yesterday off the Imex site in the listing for the all bells and whistles metal P4.
Maybe someone should whisper in Erics shell like to update it.

Check it now. As soon as I told Erik about it he corrected it.

I guess now he owes Mick one.

Woo, go you Gary. I'm guessing you mentioned it to him :thumbup:

On my phone I haven't got Imex saved as I don't need the US store. So I did a Google search. It REALLY annoys me that bloody nitrotech came up as the top search >:<

One question I have is that at this price point I’m suprised there doesn’t seem to be track tensioners on this new P4. Leastwise their not mentioned in the advertising.sure seems to have every other Bell and whistle.

Oh dear. Yep, you're correct, the P4 is about the only tank that doesn't have them. I have the winter one, when I bought it, the vendor stated it had them, I was not happy when I realised it didn't have them. Especially as mine needed them. Now I run it with the tracks too tight as I had to remove a link.

I was going to make a video today on my new Panzer 4 but there's been a problem. I originally tried to order this about three months ago and at that time I was told that the only panzer four tanks they had in IR were done in Winter camo. I did not want winter camo so I waited for the summer camo tanks to be restocked. Last week I ordered a Panzer 4 in summer, and today I received a Panzer 4 in winter camo. I am obviously not pleased. I could have had this tank three months ago. Right this minute I'm waiting for imex to call me back to see what they want to do about this.

Well...you could still do a video - an unboxing video. Get a friend to do the camera work so you can reenact your horror and despair when you lift the tank out of the box and realise that after the overlong wait they still sent you a different model to the one you ordered.

Then publish it and let everyone know what they did. Maybe they will tighten their belt a bit and do better next time. No excuse for sloppy trading. :(
