  1. I'm going to get killed for this, but; Other than the new gen recoil versions, TM AEG's are way, way too expensive for what they are.

      another good example is tm g3sg1 around £270 for something thats totaly plastic and creaks all the time. as said there under powered but internals make up for it there pritty reliable so you know ur cash is pritty safe. There Pistols are still value for money though. I just feel TM is falling behind in the times lately with not that many new guns coming out

      If anything, TM are way ahead of the times with the EBBRs, most people just don't want to move on, mostly because of the high costs and (comparative) total lack of after-market support. The reason they don't make that many releases is because they put the time and effort in to making everything they do release reliable and high quality.

      Yes, they're EBBs are great. Sadly their normal AEGs are a bit behind. And it's nothing to do with Japan's low power limits either, there's no reason why they couldn't make a Real Sword quality AK that fired at 300 fps. They just don't, I guess in Japan they must be considered the budget option.

      Wild: Guarder gearsets are notorious for having compatibility issues with anything besides a TM spec gearbox. Try the SHS m14 gearsets.

      Well, 2 of the main 3 competing designs (WE and WA type) have already vast aftermarket support. Perhaps the companies don't care to spend anymore R&D on gas stuff?

    3. hwagan

      hwagan

      That's why I'm going with WE really; It's a shame, because despite the KWA being one of the best designs, it's received no support because everyone has already gone with the WA/WE system.. Bah.

      Kinda of reminds me as to why I don't bother buying that PPK/S I have always wanted, no aftermarket support and getting spares would be a *badgeress*.

      Of course but like with Marushins i have yet to have a good KSC / KWA gun that i wanted to keep which is a shame really.

      I just typed a detailed comment about this, but the forum cut off most of it; So. I don't believe KSC or KWA pistols will hit anything past 15 metres consistently, on any brand or weight of ammo. I flat out don't believe it.

    4. hwagan

      hwagan

      I've owned at least 10, tried every weight of ammo and several mods. It just doesn't happen, except maybe for the odd few shots on a good day. They won't go in the same place twice, ever.

      The only thing you can do is close the thread, like in the event of a sale. However, if you want to drop the price by a reasonable amount, then you'll have to wait for 3 long days, in chinch time you might as well just bump the thread back to the top! Stupid really. If your in a hurry and are willing to price down more rapidly than those with more time then your stuffed.

      Closing the thread doesn't work, idiots still PM you. Plus on there if you make one single error they kick you off as they are too stupid to talk it all out.

      True, you do get some people unable to read/see the big 'Closed' sign, for most this would indicate something important, like the thread is 'Closed' i.e.

      items sold or withdrawn. There are some though that this fact manages to stretch beyond their comprehension!

      My idea of plinking is transition drills, setting up IPSC style coke can courses, drawing from concealment... Essentially I spend an hour or two every few evenings boss'ing my way around the house, heh. Definitely helps in games 'n all. Still, it's going to be skirmished and skirmished hard, so once I've had it a bit longer I'll get some impressions up with regards to any failures or wear etc.

       

      Mike, what was bad about your hop, just the rubber?

      Nice. Too bad i still haven't found a local posh farmer to hire land off of for that yet :P Still good to hear how well it does after a three month period, maybe like my tank of a 1911A1 that just refuses to die, it has funny moments but it is old, well used and pretty much gets abused too much. :P

      No, the hop-up arm was bent too much and caused the BBs to curve significantly right ("significantly" as in at least a foot at 10ft distance). After bending it back to 90 degrees, it's working correctly ever since.

      Now I'm thinking about expanding my collection, as I'm the unofficial armorer of a local photography hobby group ("Do I have to bring a duffle full of guns again?" - "Of course, what did you expect?!"). There are some things I'd like...

      hitmanNo2

      I did a lot of research into .22 vs .223. Looked at autopsy stuff, crime reports e.t.c. IMO, you would be foolish to pick .22 Sure, lighter weight for more rounds but it's simply not worth it. Add to that fact you will most likely be fighting human survivors with potential armour depending on your location. And over in the UK at least, 5.56 is more common. Sure legal .22 rifles and ammo will outnumber .223 but I'd be willing to bet 95% of that stuff will be safely locked up in gu...

    4. Avenger96

      Avenger96

      I can definitely respect wanting a bigger round to deal with the undead menace. Also, a .22 pistol may as well be an airsoft gun for the good it would do at ranges past arm length.

       

      Personally, I'd carry my shotgun. Lots of ammo, lots of power, lots of intimidation factor.

      As something designed to put BB's out of the barrel, I can agree with that. In my experience though, not including cold weather, my GBBR's have been more reliable in the field. I've had AEG trigger contacts burn out on me, gearbox lockups and motor connectors work loose, as well as overheated motors and other things. I'm more confident in my GBBR putting a round out when I pull the trigger than an AEG, even if an AEG can throw out (an unncessary amount) more in a shorter space of time.

      I've owned in the region of 20 TM pistols, some stock, some with various upgrades, including 5-6 1911's and a couple of Hicapa's, over several years, a couple with metal slides or whole metal kits. This thing IS, not might be, IS, factually better than my HurricanE kitted, professionally installed £458 Kimber TEII. It's more gas efficient, the slide is snappier, the action is smoother, and the parts are a better fit. The trigger even has a cleaner break and it came out the box...

    3. kenxin

      kenxin

      The hurricane TEII kit is factually better than the army metal body, in both construction and fit. I'm unsure where you got your kit installed, but by no means should it be worse than the army standard metal bodies. The gas efficiency does not come from the metal body (unless you're referring by weight, the lighter the better and in that respect both are heavy alloy aluminum). And the cleanness of the trigger shouldn't be affected at all by the MBK.

    4. hwagan

      hwagan

      I didn't say the kit; I was referring to the gun as a whole. For the record, the TEII kit was on a TM MEU, fitted by Mike Cripps of ESS. What I'm saying is, the Army gun is a better performing and shooting piece than my particular TEII was. However, the Army gun, including the quality of the slide and frame, is entirely on a par with HurricanE's effort.

      DrAlexanderTobacco

      I'm not sure that's the case. Is there any evidence of him doing this for personal gain so far? He's made it very clear in his interviews so far that he's thrown away everything in his life to do this. I'm glad he became a 'traitor', so to speak, to get evidence of what was happening and what could happen into the public light. It's generating a lot of important discussion. I think it's going to get a lot more interesting in the next few weeks.
