APS RAM? I'll let you guys know it's a legit shop BUT. Avoid that place is all I can say. Pretty much the same ripoff prices as milsig (hmm.... anyone wonder why?), there are places that are cheaper if you look around but I'm not allowed to directly tell you.

Well. Even one of our ASC retailers is also selling TM all black pistols at pretty high price.

I just bought a TM G17 with a tinted lower frame from another retailer and replaced it with a Guarder lower frame. The total cost is just the same.

So the key point is that you need to shop around before you buy.

It is a shame that TM GBB price are artificially inflated so much here, making less people can enjoy its good performance and reliability.

He does have things physically in stock as far as I know, the only problem is Milsig level pricing.

BUT on a GBB, the things that will go first is the plastic slide if you run propane for any extended period of time.

There are lots of things that can break, its just a matter of when. With that said, there are people on here that are running some really old GBBs without too many broken parts.

This is why a gun with good aftermarket support is something to consider when choosing a gun.
Thanks.
I was just wondering if there will be some thing like the tappet plate in the AEG, that generally tend to break first, and if there is some kind of "general order" for things to break in a GBB.

It really depends on the gun. Some will have common problems, others are just a clusterfuck. For instance, KSC P226 will have trigger bars that wear down and hammer springs that lose their strength causing either full auto, or cycling problems on double action. While other guns like my beloved KSC P2009 has lots of very tight tolerances. Once something goes, its very difficult to trouble shoot, and a challenge to fix.

But anyways, back on topic. How bullshit is it to charge over 500 for a desert eagle? Thats like wayyy back in early 2000s pricing.

Disagree. My stock TM hicapa runs like a champ. Both of em. For years. Very reliable.

Point being, buy something that's proven to be reliable. (TM!)

I see a kp06 for $400. So the TM prices aren't so bad.

everything is about quality... If you look for a Inokatsu or a Vipertech in GBB they are the best by FAR. But offcourse the price is going to be a lot.

Is the same as Systema, Celcius and even Tokyo Marui, they are more expensive than the others but is a matter fo quality.
