TM M4 from Velocity Arms

I'm looking at some of the canadian legal guns and noticed there was a TM m4. I know when i talk to fellow airsofters they strongly recommend CA or TM. Only thing is it has a Hefty price tag of almost $500. The site hasn't listed anything about it, so compared to the other canadian legal guns what do you guys think? Have any clue from experience what it's made of, how good the gearbox is?

I believe this is simple a TM M4 with a velocity arms lower. If in fact the internals are Tokyo Marui made it would be safe to assume that the item would be as high quality internally as any other TM made product, hundreds of reviews of TM M4 are available online, so sourcing a regular TM M4 review would be very useful. Externally only a few parts of the AEG appear to be metal, and the lower receiver has been replaced with one of velocity arms extremely durable receivers.

Armalites (m4s) are TM's weakest models. If you were interested in an AK, or an m14, people would suggest TM. However, since it's an m4 you're after, I'd steer clear of TMs. Besides, that gun you listed is $465, only $35 away from the "steep" price tag of a full metal gun.

You'll be able to find a better gun for that amount of money in the classifieds. PM a local age verifier to set up a meeting

$500 isn't hefty for a good airsoft gun.

I guess considering a top of the line paintball marker starts at $1000. But airsoft is secondary to paintball for me.

The higher end airsoft brands start around $600 and go to well over $2,000 for PTW (well.. if you consider a PTW to be top end).

The average range for what is generally accepted as a good airsoft gun (fuck off halfbreeds) is $450 - $800.

What about gear and what not? I have some stuff for woodsball but what would you suggest. You seemed highly experienced. Batteries? Magazines? Rigs?

- Batteries, Like $60 each. cheapbatterypacks.com has what you need.
- Mags, Anywhere from $5-8 each to $20-30 each. I use STAR and magpul "Green Label" branded mags (the cheaper end of the scale) and they work fine for me.
- Rigs, depends can be anywhere from $50 - 500. I bought a china clone rig for like $80 and it's decent. I wouldn't use it in a real war but for light/airsoft use it's great.
- Charger $100 (don't cheap out on this it will pay for itself depending on how much you use it your batteries will last longer and you'll be a happy camper not having to spend that money on batteries) a tip is to go to an RC hobby shop to buy a charger, the staff there will tend to be a lot more knowledgeable and sell cheaper than an airsoft retailer (because they're a necessity for RC).
- Boots, $80-120 I got mine on sale from Coast Mountain Sports they're not military boots or anything, just yardwork/hiking boots great ankle and roll support so they're fine for airsoft use (unless you want to fully immerse yourself in the role)
- Mask, $30 from Canadian Tire for a baseline JT PB mask (since you're a PBaller you shouldn't have a problem with that).
- BDU's $50 for a set of surplus Flecktarn (you're a woodsballer so this shouldn't be a problem, if you were a speedballer you would need to get some proper BDU's nothing like running around the woods in a neon coloured jersey).

If I think of anything else I'll add it but that's about what I had to start off.
