||This really is a great gun. I bought it from poweredgeusa dot com because they have better prices and it is a beast! they guy saying ICS is better, your retarded. your ICS probably broke the next day. anyway. If you leave this gun stock, it will last at least 7-10 years on estimate without problems. thats a long time. when it first came in the mail, I unwraped the big brown box, then opened the TM box. my beauty was sitting there, unharmed. perfect. I had charged my 8.4 large 3500mah 30 amp discharge battery the day before. I put it in the stock, which was really easy to do, and did a couple shots on auto. first words that came to my mind. "holy shit" it had at least 18 RPS stock!! that is INSANE. also, be sure not to lube it to much, along with all other guns. this will make your hop up crappy until you shoot ~500 shots. with the hopup tuned half way, I did semi shots for a while, going about 150-180 feet. thats what you can expect from TM. people are always like "OMGEE MAH ECHO 1 PWNZ0RS TEH TM!! S00 1337!!11!!111!!! your retarded. I admit, EHCO 1 is actually a comparable company to TM. with their higher FPS, they break soon. a TM is gonna last forever. an echo 1 with about an m90 actually might preform really nicely and last about 5-7 years with minor problems. anyway,
