This rifle I purchased used form a fellow airsofte that was liquidating fo a west to east coast move. it was a big deal as my TM AUG had recently bit the dust. I have been using this weapon exclusivly for almost 2 years solid and i have to say it strikes fear into the hearts of all that have felt its wrath. the only thing i have experienced was a the primary gear striped out after a full year of heavy use in very very cold weather. i am a saw gunner with this weapon i throw around 1000 rounds per day around twice a month. now for the surprises. This weapon chronos at around 275 FPS. with.20 bio bbs i normaly use .25 for the brush cutting purposes. this gun has the stock inner and it has been reshimmed after the gear replacement. the sound this gun makes is very unique and its called the lawn mower. i have a relitively low rate of fire but the accuracy is insane. its shooting an easy 200 feet with only around a 2 foot spread out in the last 5 feet of that. (soon upgradiung to a 6.01 inner barrel) never losing this gun it is my baby and she takes very good cary of me. who cares about rate of fire it only takes 1 bb to get a kill plus its like getting hit by a brick
good feel well ballanced
solid construction nothing slaps around like some guns do
my german buddy who uses the real steal version is in love
very well placed bipod
stoopid flash supressor keeps falling off non threaded piece of garbage
mags are expensive
hard to find a vest that will hold more than 1 mag per pouch

Awesome gun! Granted, i did do a hell of a lot of work on it. Upgraded the entire gearbox and its internals along with the spring and the motor..... aaaand i kinda knocked some pieces out of the internal of the stock and re soldered a 12v into it hehehe... but i did have a chance to test it right out of the box and it worked pretty good, but i didn't spend too long with it due to my anxiety to upgrade the crap out of it :P If i had to put it on a 1 to 10 scale id say out of the box its a decent 7 but easily has the potential to be a 15 :)
1. Very good DM weapon.
2. Comes with an adjustable bi-pod and cheek rest.
3. Iron sights are actually very accurate, but i would definitely suggest a scope.
4. High caps are marked at 500, but you could easily fit more in (i think with a minute of work or so i could squeeze 560.)
5. The grip is really comfy.
6. Can fit up to a 9.6v in its stock perfectly (don't have to stick to an 8.4)
7. Possibly one of the easiest guns, i've ever seen, to upgrade yourself.
8. Magazines are easy to find, but (see con #6)
9. Very accurate spread. I didn't experience much inaccuracy until even 135 to 150 feet depending on the wind.
10. IT... IS... A SMEXY GUN.
1.Price is a little on the High side for its out of the box condition (just my opinion)
2.Doesn't come with any rail or mounts even though it obviously screams for a scope, though i know that's TM not airsoftGI.
3.Carrying Strap is only on one side.
4.Mostly plastic, but should be okay if you're not bracing yourself on it for falls.
5.If you like to airsoft often (more than once a week), you will be most likely dissapointed in this gun after awhile untill you upgrade a few of the parts.
6. G3 Magazines tend to lean to the more expensive side, and you cant transpose brands (cant use CA G3 mags in a TM G3)
7. The barrel length is uncommon for airsoft guns (469mm) so finding a .01 barrel was difficult.
8. Selector switch is only on one side, not a huge issue though. I was just used to my g36c.
9. The cheek rest is adjustable, but the way you set it on there is with adhesive pads. So actually adjusting the cheek rest requires peeling it off, and using a replacement pad. Though, the gun does come with spares.

I just netted myself a TM G3SG1 a little while ago. While out of the box, it is a fairly mediocre, this is the perfect upgrade gun. Put some new parts in it, give it a scope rail with a decent scope, you have the perfect support/anti-sniper weapon that looks awesome. Yes, it's a little heavier then some guns, but it isn't a problem except for long game days (most grown adults shouldn't have a problem, and for the rest there are straps).
Feels natural for it's size
EXTREMELY easy to access/change hop-up, but doesn't slip
Accepts upgrades with ease
ASGI has a great deal for mags
Scares girls and un-enthusiasts
Sling is only on one side, and bolt is easily broken/lost
bipod wiggles, easy fix
doesn't come with scope rail
