Review Request-M14's/M21

I havent been around for a bit But I am seeing alot of TM M14's and people making them into M21's. I Know there is a couple of different makes out there But I would like a review from people in Airsoft Canada. Looking for Quality,Accuracy,Upgrades. Any further information would be great and Well Pictures would be lovely. Thanks all... I have to get off before my teacher comes around.

Tm m14

quality is great. Everything is metal but the heat shield and the stock.
Solid heavy gun right off the start. Everything about the gun is quality. Trigger pull and the whole semi auto mechanism seems to works effortlessly and flawlessly so fair. No jam ups in semi thus far like other TM guns.

Shoots very quiet in stock form. But don't let the quietness fool ya. They are shooting at least 300 right off the bat. Some people's as high as 320.

Shots are very consistent. Accuracy is superb. Best AEG I have ever owned for accuracy.

Basic upgrades are availible as the gun uses standard bushings,piston/piston head and springs so thats enough to take it up to about 360-380 fps. I did this to my gun and its shooting incredible at 360 now. At 300 FPS it was already outshooting other aeg's I had that fire around 350 FPS. Now I probably out do many 400 FPS guns for range.

The reason being this. The hop up mechanism is simply brilliant in design. Allows for a very very fine adjustment of the hopup and it doesn't slip. It stays put. Now you can finely adjust the hopup like never before to give the most consistent, straightest tragectory possible.

There are a few things as far as upgrades that are going to be v7 specific. spring guide and gears. The spring guide is now out but no upgrade gears out yet but I am sure it will be very soon. Also it uses a slightly different method of securing the barrel in the hop up. Current Tightbore barrels can me modified easy enough to work or you can wait and get the specific m14 tightbores that are coming out.

I really could go on and on about how good this TM gun is. Its my most favorite Airsoft gun I have ever owned. And I have owned many armalite varients,m249,m60's,mp5's and others. Its a top notch AEG that is miles ahead of the others in my opinion. Can't say enough about it.

Well I already have posted in the airsoft media section but here it is again. Its far from stock. hehe

So far the only con and its a small one is the outside of the gearbox seems complicated till you get to know it. No biggie

I only still have one mag but the gun is so good I played the last 4 games with it anyhow and just kept reloading.

did you put a real wood stock on it blasty? or is that the reg one that comes with it?
ive been debating what gun to get because i like the idea of getting kills from range but i hear that getting a real sniper isnt a good idea for your first gun. therefore the M14 seems like the perfect gun for me range and full auto.

Yeah its a real m14 stock.

Yeah it would be a good choice Tristan. You can snipe good with the m14 as the shots are very consistent. Even shooting about 360 I was outranging many other guns.

I recently purchased one in the OD Stock. I have yet to test it out in a game, but I've seen Blastyman's M14 in action and its quite impressive. I don't really like the colour of the OD stock, I find it a little too dark, but nothing a paint job can't fix. I also bought the TM scope mount, and I find it makes the scope sit too high up. I plan to purchase an ARMS #18 mount pretty soon and throw some better internals into it, when thats all done it should be a pretty sweet gun, maybe an actual rifle scope to substitute the Aimpoint when a game is more about long range engagements. The weight balance is a little front heavy, but with an 8.4V battery in the stock, it's not too bad at all. Thats my 2 cents.
