Review: The TM-15 is very similar to the TM-7 as it is made by the same company. It is basically a rifle where as the TM-7 is an SMG design. It has lots of rails for adding on tactical accessories. The TM-15 has an improved trigger compared with the TM-7. The trigger now actually has some give to it where as the TM-7s felt uncomfortable. The fire mode selector also has a nice solid click now compared with the weak selector on the TM-7. I played a 5 hour scenario game on the weekend with the TM-15. The next 2 days my arm had a large amount of pain from hauling the gun around. A simple solution to this would be to attach a sling to the gun as I have done with my SP8. The TM-15 is insanely quite. This is due to the design of the front grip which has internal baffles to reduce the markers sound signature. It is in fact so quite that I had several people on my team bring up the fact that it was quite while playing. I had trouble with the flip up sites. I tried to play with them a bit but in the end just took them off and sighted down the top of the barrel. I tried 2 barrels on the TM-15 the first was the stock and the second was a special ops C series 18 inch carbon fiber. The 18 inch barrel gave me better accuracy but in the end I decided to use the 14 inch stock barrel at the scenario as I have found that long barrels generally break paint when firing in full auto. The TM-15 has an expanding stock. The TM-15 has a magazine that holds the battery, room for a spare battery and also space for tools so you donít have to haul around your Allen keys in your pocket. The grip of the TM-15 is vertical which gives it an odd look. This didnt bug me at all in the game though so its purely a cosmetic thing.

Full auto on the TM-15 is nice. The speed of the firing modes are able to be changed all the way up to 20 BPS. It has the down side of being a safety-auto though. Meaning you have to hit the trigger 3 times to jump it to auto.

Paint breakage did happen consistently at only one out of all the games I played During the last year. I tried several different paint types but all broke. The problem was the temperature. It was well below -15C that day. Not a good gun for winter play. (I have found the Smart Parts SP-8 works well in cold weather.)

I just had trouble using the Iron sights. My brother on the other hand seems to like them. I suppose it comes down to personal preference on that.

All around it is a very nice gun worth the price.
Conclusion: All around it is a very nice gun worth the price.
A bigger TM-7 whats not to like?

Sorry for the late response. During the off season up here in the great white north I usually don't do a whole lot of paint ball related web surfing. I figure you have already decided on a gun by now but ill answer the questions to be courteous.
