Review: Not gonna spend alot of time on this, because I haven't got to use the gun for very long. My friend (and I)bought the gun at the MI monster Game, and got to use it for a bit. It needed tech before he could use it as he tried to fiddle with the trigger play. According to the tech, the adjustment is there for you to leave alone. (It's only to have the appearance of being adjusted?) About an hour into it's use, the screen printed mode selection indicators were starting to wear off.

The marker was turned on and dry shot a few times to show off to interested individuals. Other than that, is sat in its case until last weekend. We took it out for some backyard ball and the power button broke. Still waiting to hear back from BT Customer Service.

This is the third instance that I know of where the power button broke on the T-M7. One of which I was told that when C.S. was contacted for repair, they said it wasn't covered because it is "normal wear and tear". Also, of every T-M7 that I heard of, the mode selection wears off.

Also, the selector switch seems fairly fragile, and I'm witing for it to snap off in the middle of a fire fight.

From what I've read/heard, these issues were all brought up during testing before major production, and none of them were adressed obviously. I would like to be proven wrong, because it seems fairly irresponsible that a company wouldn't adress important issues of things known to easily malfunction.
Conclusion: EPIC FAIL

but at least it looks pretty and shoots fast (as long as you can get it to turn on)

hopefully these issues will be adressed on future production runs, and the customers are all taken care of with this miserable first batch of what could be a very slick milsim marker.
Rating:
4 out of 10

All those issues should be corrected now, the fire mode selector printing is no longer screen printed as far as I know and I believe they were addressing the wobbly front fore-grip problem as well. As far as the trigger wobble, the actual Mini is known to have noticeable trigger wobble as well, but trigger feel is certainly something some people either dont care about at all or care about a lot. It is a cronic problem in mid-range electros to have trigger wobble.

Dispute:
Your intelligence level is indicated by the fact that you believed the comment "According to the tech, the adjustment is there for you to leave alone. (It's only to have the appearance of being adjusted?)"

BT would never tell you that the power switch breaking is normal wear and tear. They have great customer service.

the selector switch designs have been changed allready, instead of painted on they are also now imprinted

Hello.
I was looking at the reviews and I noticed one thing. All the good grades come from people that used the marker for less than a month, while the bad marks come from people that used it for more than 3 months. Could this be a proof of product's quality?

While I disagree with elements of this review, I think infinity may be onto something.

I disagree with the tech story/trigger/power button issue, because while yes, the first gen TM7s had a power button issue, BT was more than willing to fix it up right and fast.

However, I have noticed problems with mine now electronically speaking. I suspect it has to do with the hall effect sensor technology. Mine functioned flawlessly until just this month.

HarryTBags: Thanks for the assault on my intelligence. Now I have a good indicator of your own intelligence level.

***UPDATE***

I have to say that BT's customer service has been very helpfull and courteous. I did have an issue where they sent me a replacement board which was a european version (semi auto only), but they are correcting that as we speak. From what I read, the newer models have adressed the flaws with the first run.

I will upgrade my rating number after I get a chance to play with this marker for a while. I don't think I'm going to be dissappointed.
