I've only used it in one game, but I loved it. It feels great when firing and is comfortable to shoot. However, running poses a slight problem what with it being rear heavy, so ascending/descending a hill, holding it one handed whilst under fire is somewhat difficult.

Fun to plink around with. It shoots accuratly for about 50 feet. I am surprised with its durability. I thought it would be broken by now. It was the first gun I ever got, and I am still happy I got it. I would never bring it to a game in fear of what other would say though. The only thing I don't like about it is that it is small and not 1:1.

TM P226

1) Make and Model
-- Sig Sauer P226, Tokyo Marui (GBB)
2) Date Purchased
-- September 2005?
3) Cost
-- $250~?
4) New/Used?
-- New
5) Mechanical Problems
-- Snapped Trigger Spring (January 2007)
-- Stock nozzle began to stick with propane use due to increased upwards pressure which gouged grooves into it. (December 2005)
6) Esthetic Problems
-- BB marks and wear across gun from CQB use.
7) Rounds Fired Between Failures
-- N/A (Countless rounds fired, primary sidearm and primary CQB weapon)
8) Changes to Internals & Externals
-- Guarder Reinforced Nozzle.
-- Replaced broken trigger spring with hammer spring of TM M9 Springer with pliers... Will have to replace with a better spring eventually, as double action is not always functioning.
9) Resale Date and Value
-- It's a keeper.

Note: There is also another fault that I've found with the P226: A spring hidden under the right-side grip panel has the nasty tendancy to pop out if you're not careful. This part is absolutely essential for firing.

1) Manufacturer, Model Name (name of weapon on box, and weapon replicated if different from model name)-TM M16 A2

2) Date Obtained-June 2006

3) Initial Cost-$450

4) New or Used-New

5) Mechanical Problems (Gearbox issues, hopup issues.. basically functional performance related -- supply date of issue)
-My Hop-up unit 'just' wore away last week (Lots of use though).

6) Esthetic Problems (Paint damage, cracks in body, loose parts.. physical construction related -- supply date of issue)-Pins falling out. Not very tight fit for front pin. Barrel wobble has been there for several months.


7) Rounds fired between failures (think how many bags of BB's used before it failed. If no failure, list rounds fired up to this point)-Around 5 bags of 3.7k

8) Changes to Internals and Externals (upgrades, mods, dates)
-Nope

9) Resale Date and Value if applicable.-

10)Notes and Comments (Optional)
Works great, barrel wobble doesnt affect it much. Still pwns noobs. Good choice for an AEG sniper. High rate of fire to, with a 8.4 3600. Faster than a Famas when fully charged. But a little big for CQB...
