Solid gun. My cousin gave me this gun 2 years ago (He owned it for about 6 years before giving it to me), and I have replaced most of my internals. The first thing I upgraded when I got this gun was my spring, and after a year one of my gears chipped a tooth.
The body is strong and durable, but because it is plastic, the TM model takes alot longer to disassemble because the upper receiver splits into two pieces.
It currently shoots at 350 FPS perfectly with an upgraded spring (forget what), Systema Genuine Ratio Gears, Some duracon piston head, an m120 Ultra high speed motor, and just a 6.04mm inner barrel. I was told im shooting 15 BB's a second with a 9.6v battery, but I also heard that the chrono that measures BPS isn't very accurate, soooo i dunno... shoots pretty fast to me.
My gun is over 8 years old now and it is still very dependable.
I would recommend this gun to anyone.
It is modeled after the MP5, so it is small, compact, and it makes you feel cool and tactical :D
Tokyo Marui is very well built
This gun will last you forever
9.6v mini DOES fit in the handguard.
Fast ROF even w/ 8.4v
280 Stock FPS so you have to invest in some upgrades if you want to shoot 350.
The stock gets wobbly after a while.
The charging handle is plastic so you cant pull it back and slap it to sound cool.
You really have to invest some money into this gun for parts, internal and external. No rails, a bigger handguard is expensive...
