Review: So, I have been "playing" for 15 years or so, but very very sporadically. I have recently gotten the bug and this time I had some money. Dangerous combination.

I was torn between a decent electronic "Speedball/Airball Marker" and sharp looking Mil-Sim marker. I mostly play woodsball, but I want to be able to operate in CQB efficiently, as well as be able to play speedball, and hauling around a replica main battle rifle is not the best plan for these situations, obviously.

When I expressed this dilemma to the boys over at the Bing Shop, their response was "why not just get one marker for both?".

Now, I am a "fan" of sub-machine guns, but I am partial to main battle rifles. I guess that is why I really didn't pay much attention previously to the marker Beau pulled off the wall and handed to me. TM-7 huh?

I simply cannot say enough good things about this marker. Clearly you can't give a full review until you play with a marker for some time, but you can definitely tell a winner just by hefting it and putting it through its' paces.

So much has changed since I played heavily 12 years ago, and the eye system in this marker is amazing. I got it all set up and ready to go, went out on the deck and tried to fire it... nothing. What? I mess around, thinking it is something stupid. It was. Feed wasn't connected properly. Well, any other gun I have ever owned would have shot anyway. Damn nice, even if it won't 100% stop the chop, I will take everything I can get.

This thing rips a rope of paint out so fast that it looks like the balls are touching. I fired it at a target about 50 feet away, and when braced, it tagged an area about 4 inches across. Dead. On.

The buttstock is a definite selling point, light but sturding, quite adjustable. As mentioned by a previous reviewer, the battery port is excellent both in location and operation.
Conclusion: Attention to Detail. Whoever designed this marker did so with love and pride from the beginning to the end.

Anyone considering getting a new marker, put this guy at the top of your list.
