First off I found this for quite a steal and mostly for a good reason. My first time trying to turn it on, the little switch on the board snapped right off which I found out is a common problem with these. So I spent a month or two waiting for APE to relase a board (I said screw the stock one) and now this thing runs like a champ. Fires consistent, easy to clean and is light weight as can be. This is one of my favorite guns I have owned.

I got this gun for a steal at 300 bucks and the first time i took it out all i can say is HOLY $**t. It was amazing worth every dollar i payed for it. the problem is the next time i took it out the solenoid went bad. I had it fixed but it just kept on breaking. When it was working I loved it. But when it was broken it wus a pain in my butt. the internals are pretty complicated so good luck cleaning it and oiling it. the poppit bolt isnt my favorite. Everyone else seems very happy with it but i guess i just got a faulty gun. Im just going to sell it and probably go with a planet eclipse gun. Hopefully that will work just fine.

I loved playing with my TM7. It was a ton of fun.

The way it is set up I personally thought it only looked good with a shorter barrel. I went with an 8" Lapco with Apex and it was loud as all get out. The gun was a blast. I didn't like that I had to completely take the shells apart to work on it.

Well I've never really used my tm-7 totally stock when I bought it I bought it with an upgraded bolt later on in bought an upgraded solenoid and an rf chip when I used my rip clip. I bought the ape rampage board for it just because there wasn't any of that two semi shots then full auto crap. I haven't had any problems at all yet it. But the things I don't like about it is the plastic composite it just feels really fake also the trigger it uses this strange box spring that serves two purposes one for the trigger and one for the selector switch and it just feels strange. A lot of people complain about the selector switch but I haven't really had any problems with it I don't nock it from full to safe like some people say. The stock board is soo simple to program anyone could do it unlike some other guns where you have to pull the trigger push the power button and jump up and down four times. It's performance is just amazing just using the stock barrel when I first used it it was kind of an air hog but I lower the asa pressure and raise the fps dial and i could get almost 1800 to 1900 shots out of a 90ci tank

A good marker if you plan to do woodsball, however if you ever want to go to speedball it will not end well. It has to much stuff on it. However this "stuff" is not all bad. It is a very good marker, love playing with it has a great feel, shoots great. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to play woodsball and still be able to blow away your friends

When I first saw this gun at my local paintball shop I knew I had to have it. With the mini invert internals it is the best of both worlds; a light great looking scenario gun with the firing power and and accuracy of a speedball gun. The only negative thing that has happened to me is that after a game once I tried turning the eyes off the next day to dry fire the thing and it wouldn't fire. I tried turning the eyes back one and put some air and balls in and it wasn't firing. Took it apart three times and tried reseting the board and still nothing. Had to send it in to BT. They replaced the board for free and now its working fine but it was a hassle having to do without it for like a month. As far as scenario goes I think its the best thing out there right now. I play with a crowd that runs egos, minis, g3's etc.. and it keeps up like a champ.

Disclaimer**** I am not that great on reviews. I just write what I see from using a product.
This is my second TM7. First one, the on/off button was broken on the board. Bad Boyz Toyz replaced the problem with providing me with a whole new marker which haves its ups and downs.

First when I got the marker, I tested the electronics. They worked. The marker would turn on. When I pulled the stock out, a wire got snagged and the wire was cut into 2. I was pissed but was able to fix the problem by liquid electric taping the wires together (great stuff by the way). Once that was all fixed, the next day was testing day at a Big Game Scenario at the Badlandz (Crete, IL).

Having the marker in a 3-point sling and connect to a remote line, it was light. Especially when holding it. The plastic frame was probably a good choice for the marker but I was afraid it was not going to take the punishment. For 6 hours of paintball, this thing took a beating. I was crawling in the dirt, grass, mud piles, shrubs, leaves and the thing was still shooting like nothing happened. The marker was able to withstand a couple of direct shots. I was afraid to see it into 2 pieces (and thats not when I planned on cleaning it either). The only piece I noticied was the selector switch broke in a middle of a fire fight.
The Tm7 was quiet even when ramping. It was accurate when using a 14in DYE UL barrel. It would shoot where I needed it when I needed it. So all in all, its an impressive little marker.

Maintanence:
I owned Tippmanns/BTs and DYE markers. When taking this apart, I was a little intimidated when seeing the guts of the marker. But with the help of the manual, it was gravy. Just take your time taking it apart, and putting it together. Just be aware of where the wires are because when you reassemble the stock, there is a chance it will catch the wires and rip them from the harness or board.

Overall:
All in all, this is a great scenario marker for one getting into the scenario play. Friends loved it when I was with them and backing the up knowing I can lay down cover fire for them.

Pros: light weight, accurate, quiet, air efficient, on the fly mode change

Cons: plastic feel, trigger takes time getting used to, selector switch fragile, internal wiring design.
