TM7 and TM15 advice needed.

So I came up on what I think is a pretty good deal on a TM7 and TM15. I was just wanting to know if their were any different versions of either of these markers. I thought I recalled reading something about an issue with the first series of TM solenoid. If someone could give me a rundown on things to look for it would be greatly appreciated.

The original solenoid has a tendency to get gummed up and stick. This can be minor where you need to pull the trigger a few times before it starts firing or it can get to a point where it takes a hundred clicks. They eventually came out with an adapter that allows use of the Mini/Axe solenoid instead. While this makes it better it can still have the same problem (the same thing happens with the Mini/Axe).

Outside of the solenoid, the TM-7 v2 added stamped in selector switch positions instead of painted on and a locking stock at full extension (rather than it pulling straight out). TM-15 hasn't had any revisions other than the LE version which has a cut down shroud.
