TM-15 with 2 point sling, BT RipClip, X7 low profile hopper, Trijicon TA-01 replica, 5 point foregrip and a remote line with 48/4500 ninja tank.
Coming stock, buy a RipClip and a X7 low profile hopper.
Ease of maintenance
Customizability with accessories
Stock flip sights
The TM-15 has set itself apart from other electronic-pneumatic rifles in the paintball industry, thus making it the number one paintball marker for 2010.
The Body - This marker is one of the few (if not the only) marker that comes built from an aluminum alloy. This makes the marker light as if carrying plastic but also tough and durable as if made out of carbon steel or titanium. You can run around and maybe smack this gun on the side of a tree and it will keep on going without a hitch.
The Barrel - Comes stock with a ported 14 inch barrel which in conjunction with the body, suppresses the noise while firing; sort of a built-in silencer. As you may notice above in the "upgrades" section that i did NOT list a barrel upgrade, because I found that the stock barrel works really well already.
Weaver/Picatinny Rails - The amount of rails on this markers is REDICULOUS; ridiculous as in perfect for mount endless configurations for accessories.
Grip - The grip could have been more angled, but I can understand why they made the grip they way they did.
Magazine - The mag on this marker is pretty standard, has a place for your allen keys and also houses 2 batteries. What I would have liked to have seen was it come stock with an AR-15 type mag, as this marker is supposed to resemble an HK416 which uses STANAG magazine.
Maintenance - The bolt-out-back design makes maintenance even for noobies a quick and easy process. Two screws for the body and 1 screw for the bolt gives you access.
Eyes - Comes fully equipped with break beam eyes, which prevents the marker from firing is a ball is not completely inserted inside the breach.
Low Pressure Operation - Fires at 200 psi, which lets you get more shots on a tank fill.
No External Hoses - The marker has an internal airline operation, which is a good thing in my opinion, because external hoses take away from the "mil-sim" look.
My recommendation is that if you don't care about external customizability while caring about durability, reliability and performance, then the TM-15 is a definite marker for you to buy, at at 450 dollars, you really cant go wrong.
