Steven You do realize TM is just the industry standard right; just because they started the whole thing doesn’t mean they will always be the best gun available on the market. Most of the "other" brands Kid Posted are actually better out of the box. Tm is mainly made for the Japanese market; i doubt tm cares as much as the "other" airsoft companies on there exported products. I would rather buy a NEW G&G than buy a TM and have to upgrade the gun right off the bat to be at par with most "other" brands.
I've owed two TM's and i personally did not enjoy them with great content, in my opinion it’s more of a brand name than anything else now.
