I know that TM weapons are easily upgraded with things like metal kits, internals and so forth. However, once you've shelled out the extra cash for the upgrades, the whole package costs as much as a higher-quality rifle would in the first place. So if you want a top-notch gun fast, you're better off trying something else, just to be sure.

But if you're looking for a long-term project, something to work on and play with, I don't think you can really go wrong with TM, especially as a starter AEG.

wtf are you talking about? TM is on the higher end of the spectrum with regards to price and initial quality, it is NOT cheap, and hardly comparable to buying from Canadian Tire.
