It's actually kind of a misnomer that ICS is totally different. I actually learnt a few days ago that most ICS parts *should* be compatible with it's TM counterpart, just key parts like the anti-reversal thingy and mechbox aren't compatible.
However as been said just cause it's "supposed" to fit doesn't mean that it will.
Tolerances kind of don't mean a thing in all honesty. Just because one aftermarket part may fit on this doesn't mean that a different aftermarket part will fit on that.
eg. You have parts from companies A, B, and C on your gun Z.
Z may accept A and B together but may not accept A and C or B and C work together but A and B don't. Tolerances are slightly different with different companies. Sure they will fit on a TM but different companies may not play well with each other. It's really best to just stick with one company as much as possible when shopping for aftermarket stuff.
Sorry if that was long winded and if it confused you then don't worry about it.
