  1. Marshall told me Thursday night that propane is going to break my 226E2.  That was a cool story.

      It will.... eventually, I guess that means it'd never break if it was run on 134a?

      There was a distinct undertone snark of 'fnar, you idiot' and airsofters talking bs based on myths they read on facebook grinds every single one of my gears, doubly so when it's entirely not correct in the context and said with an air of all-knowing arrogance.  I know some of the models don't handle it, but there's also lots of them that run the pressure absolutely fine as we're all aware, anyone who's done some reading would be.  First time I pulled out lipos at one site (years ago) some idiots lost their minds like I was a walking time bomb; the ignorance physically pains me with some people.

    TM Revised G17 - On the horizon?

    Personally, my concerns are holster fitment and performance. My 226E2 has frankly spoiled me in both regards and I cannot actually praise the thing enough; I really want the qualities of that gun in a TM Glock, but as much time as I've spent scratching my head over it I can't really see a route to get what I want. Admittedly that could well be down to the fact I know very little about customising pistols in comparison to what I want to know, but I've asked around and nobody's given me an answer yet.

    TM Revised G17 - On the horizon?

    Are they doing the 'official' licensed guns now? Depends if the money's there for another brand new injection mould to do that new frame I suppose. My Gen 3 and 4 VFC G17s are super pretty but utterly underwhelming to shoot to say the least, there's just 10x too much resistance in the slide travel for them to run well. But if they do steel internals and the efficiency is there, sweet. Not sure how long it took for there to be G4 airsoft replicas, but there's always gonna be that lag behind. My guesstimate would be next year perhaps before we see anything.

    The 22 has some updates, but it's not got everything the 19 is gonna have. That's been my reading anyway, pretty sure the 19 will be a new system as it were and various internals won't be compatible.

    TM Revised G17 - On the horizon?

    They've revamped a fair few things, I mean you can always ignore the 92Fs and just buy the 9A1, ignore the 226 and buy the E2. They might still make the original models but that's no reflection on the huge popularity of the recoil line. I don't disagree a new G17 would be a long time coming as I said in the OP; guess I'll buy this 19 whenever it comes out. Don't like compacts but hey it'll work in my many 17 size holsters.

    Fingers crossed. If not maybe just adding some other controls to the top of the reply input box (eg text background colours) if that's available.

    Yep that's the one. If I'm being massively blind I apologise but as things stand I can't see a button for that like there was previously.

    TM Revised G17 - On the horizon?

    So to answer my question - no. 1 incident doesn't prove anything and you were being sensationalist with no concrete proof. They've added that metal in to the slide catch notch because in the past it was a case of the metal catch acting against bare plastic in the slide. Do you have any actual solid evidence to suggest the plastic is of any lower quality? The fact you ruined the gun on propane on an extremely hot day after they upped the volume of the nozzle is pretty much self explanatory. But if you do have said evidence I'm genuinely open to hearing it.

    TM Revised G17 - On the horizon?

    Really? Is that evidenced by a good sample size of people? I've got a lot of bone stock TM pistols here, some are pushing a decade at this point with a fair few rounds and all on propane, no issues. I'd be very disappointed if they've deliberately made all their materials that much weaker.

    I'm more than fine with the light levels in the day tbh, the lack of any uniform req makes most average skirmishes bad enough for team ID as it is; however I've no doubt the numbers will be a lot lower and I won't miss going back to the same choke points to die many times per day. Actually being able to move through any site and at least having the potential to maybe flank some opposition is always a big plus. I've managed it maybe a couple of times on a sunday, but realistically you're going to have an entrenched frontline most of the time.

    Right... was kinda after some predictions though, I think it's already a given that many people would want the gun.

    I do get it and I'm sure the initial shock will wear off and I'll get over it, hardly the end of the world for me playing ~3-4 times a year, but I think the lack of lunch in particular means you're 'comparatively' paying more like 40-something. The lunch at the Billet was amazing last time I was there, loads of it and not just made up of sugar-junk. Genuinely decent and substantial sandwiches, fruit, bottled water etc etc.. blew my mind. Next on my list I will actually be doing my first evening at the mall with a work mate since we're based so close, then I'll give the Outpost another go since they do offer lunch now after not having the facilities for the first couple of years of operation. Then I'll book the next Legion Longmoor since skar rates it so highly. On the one hand I'm saddened by Lane End, had my first couple of years' worth of games there, they always did great freshly cooked food, always had my membership with X Site. But when I went last year it looked truly run down in the game area, nothing had been built for years and lots of structures were collapsed or out of bounds on account of disrepair. Some of the marshalls had been doing it so long they'd basically put down roots. Not a criticism at any of the owners but it had clearly stagnated and being one of those old school places that started out as paintball it must've been going for 15+ years at least.
  13. What do we reckon? IIRC the slowly incoming/much anticipated G19 will have updated blowback parts á la the 226E2 and M9A1 along with metal reinforcement in the slide notch for the slide lock lever and potentially an entire re-sizing of the slide to RS dimensions? The G22 brought some updates to the service sized gun, but (even if it takes 3+ more years) I would definitely be happy to wait for a TM G17 with the above improvements. All just conjecture chat ofc.

    They stopped doing lunch bloody ages ago (good couple of years) so unless it's restarted and their website is now incorrect it's not included atm. Frankly I've never played anywhere that didn't have a car park so I'll be honest I don't personally count that a bonus. It's their business and I have no issue with them charing what they like, as I say I just won't be going often.

    I had an inkling that may be the case but no dramas, thanks for the info. I have a 'Code' button on Chrome desktop, but that's for inserting code. Also a preview button but I'm not seeing a way to change that to a code view.
