    Initial Impressions of the TM SOPMOD M4 AEG

    Would a Magpul MOE handguard fit a SOPMOD?

    Initial Impressions of the TM SOPMOD M4 AEG

    I received my SOPMOD the other day from Airsoft Atlanta. It's a very nice gun - heavy and solid feeling, although the stock does wobble around a bit on the tube. Is there any way to resolve this? Shooting it is a LOT of fun. Judging by all the videos I had seen of the SOPMOD and SOCOM being fired, it looked sometimes like it was just a heavy vibration at best, but it definitely has a kick to it. I'm sure the SOCOM would be even more fun since it's a lot easier to fit some LIPOs in the normal handguard. It's also extremely accurate right out of the box. I was able to hit a very narrow metal pole (from the frame of a trampoline) maybe 3 inches wide from quite a distance away, just with using the included sights (which were not zeroed, nor was the hop up adjusted at all).

    Unfortunately I've only been able to put a few rounds through it. I'm waiting for an AI duster adapter to arrive in the mail, but in the meantime I tried making up my own adapter - didn't really work but it did get enough gas to fire half a mag. It's got decent kick (at least on par with my old TM M9) and the shell ejection works flawlessly, and they actually fly about as far as a real steel version would eject them. From what I've read it shoots 200-220fps out of the box with 134a (green gas is not recommended), but RA Tech does make their own shells which lack the small port of the Marushin shells which kicks it up to a respectable 260-280fps Also, it's built very well and looks nice - only major cons I can see is that the Kimber script on the left side of the slide is very poorly ingraved (deep on the outer edges and shallow on the inside) and the decocking lever (which only acts as a secondary safety) has a flimsy action, but otherwise it's very nice. Perhaps not $200 + shipping nice though... Of course you can't really use this in a skirmish - each shell runs about $4 each. However, as a collector's piece and indoor plinking gun, it's perfect.
