Their gun is really worst because they are not copy. they actually spend much money on the research and development, that's why most of their are quite expensive compare to chinese clone.

For the massive produce won't cost much than the quality control and research and development product. That's why their gun are really worst and also we should give respect to them as well since they are the mother company who give birth to airsoft product that we mostly use nowadays.

It's a matter of opinion.

When kept stock, Tokyo Marui guns have the most reliable internals. A stock TM will run for years without needing any work done to it.

Having said that, TM bodies are plastic and don't stand up to abuse well. If you're planning on replacing most of the internals, then spending the extra money on something like a Classic Army gun (though which also has excellent internals) might not be a bad idea. If you don't abuse your guns, don't mind a plastic body, and want a gun that will last a long time kept stock, than TM guns are great.

I'll only say this - I still own the first AEG I ever bought, which is a 10-year-old TM AK47 that I'd estimate has in excess of 150,000 rounds through it. It's never failed to fire, and never broken down.

if your going to upgrade a TM, plan to upgrade everything. Also, Systema is the most reliable =p
Or maybe real sword, but then again, I've never held one of those, let alone shoot one.

Then a new version Systema PTW? Seriously?? Oh man... I know that could be true for their M14s, P90s, and AK series, but surely not for their M16/M4 series.

Aslong as you don't upgrade them and abuse them.. then yea.. internally TM is the most reliable.

I'll agree that their armalite series is greatly lacking... But we've got CA, G&P and all those other companies to make up for it.

I can't vouch directly for or against Tokyo Marui, but my general understanding of their products is that buying from TM is like buying from Canadian Tire. It's cheap, it's strong, it's reliable, and it comes with lots of fun extras, but there's a chance, with every purchase, that it will just be crap and die before its time.

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.

TM are the best guns money can buy - in terms of reliability and quality.

If you're going to separate reliability and quality as two different notions (how well the gun is built internally/performs and how well it is built externally), then it's impossible for TM to score 'best' for quality. Most brands are externally superior brands to TM when talking about all but the most recent TM guns. The difference between other brands' wood, metal and fiber glass versus TM's mostly simple ABS plastic.

Apart from AR-15s, I try to get a TM gun when I have the option.

I wonder why there are still many TM fanboys that claim it out performs every other AEG out there...
