    TM FN Five-seveN GBB

    Hey guys. Alright, so Ive almost pretty much decided to get a TM 5-7, I just want to know a few details before I take the plunge. Keep in mind this is my very first GBB or Gas pistol I have ever owned. 1: Ive heard that the 5-7 is a decently built gun, but after a while has had problems with green gas. Is this true, and is there a way to remedy it? 2: This sort of goes along with the previous point. Ive heard a lot about the guarder upgrade kit, what exactly does it do? Does it help reinforce the structure of the pistol so it can take green gas (or take it better)? Does it improve the look, feel or functionality? Is it really worth it in the long run. 3: I see there are newer models on Red Wolf that include a small LAM unit of sorts and a different tone. Is it worth it to get that version over the standard black variant? Are there any differences besides tone and LAM unit? I would normally go with the FDE variant but the color doesnt quite look right, so I would prefer the standard black look. If I could get this questions answered, it would be much appreciated. Thanks!!!

    Oh yeah I can understand that, but still was there need for an over reaction? Maybe im blowing this out of proportion, but simply being respectful goes a lot further than laughing at the "newb's" uncommon knowledge of everything airsoft. Even though preference to a certain brand is largely subjective. And what I meant to by "a good company" is meaning a reliable company at a slightly cheaper price point of close to 200 bucks. Oh and sorry too about somehow making Socom Gear seem "better" than a TM. The only thing that I can see that is "better" than TM is that most or all of thier guns are made of full metal (The ones that are real steel of course, I know the Five-seveN is made of polymer) and that the price is slightly less for what you get. Or at least thats the way I see it in my eyes. I am a newb when it comes to pistols but I've been playing for a while now and know what company is "better". And I know that TM is widely seen as the best, weather it be true or not. I honestly can not give an opinion on that seeing as I have yet to hold one.

    Woah hit a nerve somewhere guys? Sorry bout the Socom Gear reference. I have yet to hold either a Socom Gear or TM pistol. I know TM is universally acclaimed, I have just been looking into the Socom Gears and they seem to be very solid guns, especially for the price. Not to be rude or anything but I expected a slightly more respectable response out of a forum that is held in such high regard. Then again I guess I shouldnt be surprised that airsofters are incredibly elitist.

    Really? Thats a bummer. I would love to see Socom Gear come out with one. From what Ive seen, they make a mean pistol.

    Sorry for being so slow here, but other than TM, does anyone make a decent Five-seveN? I have a SCAR H SSR (Pictures soon ) and would love to get my hands on a Five-seveN for a decent price by a good company. Thanks They are beautiful guns!
