Reason that I don't like TM's much is that they have plastic bodies, to upgrade the fps you need to upgrade other GB parts, and they're expensive. For a similar price you could get a G&P.
There is definitely some truth there. TM is alittle weak on the muzzle velocity, and all abs externally. But you will not get anything remotely as reliable. You leave a TM stock internally and it will last literally decades. I'm in the process of building a backup gun right now that's going to be externally almost entirely G&P and internally stock TM. Yeah the fps will be alittle weak, but the primary consideration of a backup is that it works, since if you're using it at all your primary has already crapped out on you.

I got the gun itself lightly used from the ASC classifieds already upgraded with a bunch of systema internals for $600 shipped, which was a really great deal (it was probably worth a $100 more). I got the CA m203 for an absolute steal at $150 due to some cosmetic damage you can't even see when it's mounted. Normally expect to pay around $300 for one. The red dot sight and the taclight I also got for great deals due to timing, both sellers needed cash quick. The rds was $20 (expect to pay ~$70) and the taclight, which is a G&P, I paid $30 for (about $60 new). Flip front sight, about $30. The Z rail I got as a free extra on another deal but is worth about $30 or so. I had to replace the battery not too long after I got it, another $50. So all told it cost me $880, but if you wanted to duplicate it in a hurry expect to pay about $1100-1200. And that's not including the $60 I paid for twelve Star realcap mags or the $450 I paid for six madbull 40mm grenades. Including the above ammo, $20 for the AI adapter and $40 for a charger, it cost me about $1420 to effectively field my baby.
