TM SIG P226 REVIEW

Recommended Posts

Just curious, for those who ordered from Den, how much is does the shipping cost to the US. (yes, I know I can ask them for a quote, but I'm too lazy to do that. :P  And don't want to be on their black list if I decide not to buy from them.)

 

$32 from Hong Kong to Tennessee.

Fair point. Would you rather they release a shedload of guns all at once that need tweaking, or wait a while for a gun shooting 300+ fps out of the box? Hmm... :D

 

*Awaits flood of cheap 2nd hand GBBs as everyone sells them to fund 226s*

 

:zorro:

I've already started that. :P

Interesting, I honestly can't remember if this is how it is on the real thing. All I do remember for sure is that using the decocker returns the trigger to a double action pull, which would not appear to be the case on the TM, at least according to how I read your review.

 

EDIT: As a complete aside, if anyone cares, UNCo now has the P226 in stock at $225. I prefer them over DEN and Redwolf and I imagine there may be someone else out there who feels the same. http://www.uncompany.com/pageproductdetails.asp?prodid=5726

er, a minor correction. It's $125. :) I personally like UNcompany better than Den too.

 

But if you look at Hobby Asia, they don't have it yet, but take pre-order for only $99, and they say they should have it by next week.

Thanks for the link, I suppose I was just confused by the wording as it does appear to lower the hammer all the way back down. Well I guess the WA V10 Ultra Compact will have to wait, Sig P226 here I come.

 

Hey Zen, i'd get the V10 first if you do want one. The Sig is gonna be every where and very easy to get for along time. the V10 however will soon be a hard to find item.

Stock performance 330fps on green gas @ 15 degrees C? Muahaha.

I told you this gun would rule. TM am bestest GBB pistol maker.  :)

 

 

You did :)

 

Have to say the review makes it sound pretty appealing.

 

Do you REALLY have your house as cold a 15C, though? If so, looks like propane is a no-no for spring/summer skirmishing (not a problem for power, but more expensive to use 134a)

 

 

Cheers

You could be right, it could have been closer to 20C, either way im blown away by the performance.

Sounds more likely, yeah. Man, I can't wait to get mine (and the G3 inner barrel I'm putting in my Desert Eagle, nyeh heh). :)

Whoops, sorry for the typo, it is indeed $125 at UNCo. As for the V10, I think I just got a little excited by the metal slide which sold out really quick at UNCo, and I'd personally rather not order from DEN. Anyhow, this may be my last airsoft themed order for awhile so the Sig it will be.

Yea it's pretty cheap at GnG (whom I've ordered from before) but what's with the only payment option being wire transfer? I thought I was able to pay with Paypal...granted, this was like a year ago.

I think with GnG you need to e-mail them for PayPal details or something. Sorry, can't remember exactly, but I'm sure they take other payment options, and that someone who knows will shortly drift by and post. :)

Now that the 100rd magazine for the TM G18C AEP (Flame me all you want) is being released, I don't know which to get. I would use the G18C+100rd magazine as a sub machine gun of sorts, or just get another nice pistol. And theres the about 100 FPS difference (if I remember correctly)

I asked them couple of months ago about paypal payment, and they told me they accept it. I guess they just hadn't integrated that into their website.

After GnG send you the invoice, just ask them how to go about sending payment via paypal and they'll send you a money request.

It depends on what you want: a good pistol or a good SMG. With the 100 round magazine, the 18C MAEG is sure to be an awesome subgun. I know a lot of people bash this gun, but notice how all the people who actually have one only have praise for it?

 

Of course, the 226 has a bigger fun factor with the recoil and all.
