Well what is there not to like about this marker? An e-marker for the woods fully dressed. Selector switch , quite , and can paint the tree's..lol..
In my 18 years i stay'd with blow back systems .. this is my first E-marker..
the only faults i found were the condom didn't fit..lol.
it is a great operating marker well put togeather.
But this is not for a newbie it is complex to take apart. and the care and attention it needs is.. well only with exsperiance.. great tool kit, works well..
so if you want to try e-markers and still want your woods ball look this is it.. next to the x-7.. the advantage this has over the x7 is air efficiency , and can shoot more ball's per sec.. witch is limited anywere you go so.. it depends on your taste x7 has more add on and conversions compaired to the tm7
I give this a 9 only because it is not for newbies
TM-7: Very similar other than a size and a few improvements to the TM-15.
A barrel if you want more accuracy
Magazine holds batteries and tools
A little heavy
Had trouble with the flip up site
Grip is virtical
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 don’t 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.
