$570 for a G17? That's a bit pants-on-head-retarded...

Agreed. But if I bought a TM with tinted lower at $ 280 locally, and replace it with a reinforced Guarder lower frame. I get an even better quality TM at the same or lower price.

Very sad to see someone's greed has reached such extent. This simply do no good for our hobby but just take away many people's opportunity to enjoy TM GBBs.

Also you can't base prices on just one website.

WOW!?!... Everything I saw there is unbelievably overpriced, do yo see what they're asking for their PTW's. Margins like that you only need to make a few sales a month to stay in business. DO NOT buy from this place, even if it's the only place that has what you want. Be a good little consumer and don't support inflated pricing.

A BNIB "all black" TM pistol should run you around $325-375, shipped. If, like Swattiger you can get a clearsoft version and replace it with a better quality non-transparent lower for the same price or less, then you're ahead of the game.

the reason that we, 90 percent of the users, do not know this site, it is due to the fact that all the bits saying that it is a Canadian site is fraud, the only store that they own is UK based, and the gear being TM is probably destined to staying at the CBSA, also indefinantly scamming you in the process

Hmmmmm.....I just looked on their site, about $380 for a TM Hi-Capa 5.1? I know of where to get a 4.3 for about $350...so I wouldn't say their prices are THAT bad. However, that site looks way too shady lol. Watches? That totally seems legit.

But, like they said, you should get age verified if you can (yes, this is coming from a guy who isn't, but I'm not 18 yet, so I can't). I can tell you however, you will be able to find much better deals in the classifieds on this forum. By that, I mean stuff you won't be able to find on craigslist or kijiji...


On a side note, I bought a WE Glock 23F Gen 4 (It has a full auto function wtf) for $200 (I think that I paid too much...TA has a G18 with a silencer for just over $200...), and I've put well over 4000 rounds into it the past month. It's stood up well for me, I have yet to hear bad things about it.

@ Freeze; WE Glocks and WE Berettas actually aren't that bad. It's just their 1911's that suck (and I think it's mainly because of the design where they had knowledge of what works and what doesn't after the fact to make their Berettas and Glocks better).

Well I just dialed in and they said that they are currently located in Pacific Plaza, Richmond, BC and they have everything in stock as advertised.

Anyone from BC here?? I am looking forward to some store gallery.

I've been there once. Seemed more like a pretty cool hangout spot than a store to me tho hahaha. The guy there seemed friendly.
