tm 15 questions and opinions
Alrighty, fellas I have been scouring the web for reviews on reviews and opinions on the tm 15 and tm7, and at last I find myself here asking some questions because I feel you all are the most qualified to answer them. Here we go.
I am mere couple days away from buying a gun, and I have heard some amazing things about the tm 15. I can't handle the look of a space gun and I love the fact that this is a mini in a milsim body, fast accurate, durable, and looks great. Super stoked about this gun.
Now here is the thing I know most the people who are having problems are the ones that are going to complain about it more then the people who love there guns. So I have taken everything I have read with a grain of salt and that is why I am posting here. Here are my gripes and what I have heard which is making this a hard decision as to whether I want to buy this gun.
First off the tm 15 looks huge, but the first thing I would do after shooting it and making sure it works properly is doing the soggy mod to get that thing down to a proper length for me.
My question here is, with the soggy mod how big is the gun compared to the tm7?
I like how small the tm7 is but I have heard way to many bad things about it plus the tm-15 seems all round better other then size.
Second set of questions, Have they fixed the solenoid problem on the newer models? and what exactly is the problem? How many of you have run into it? I have heard everything from the stock lube they use is crap, that the eyes are bad, or the solenoid is bad among others. Doesn't seem like there is a definitive answer. What is it really if anyone knows? This has been the biggest issue that has been popping up everywhere and the most concerning to me, one store accounted for 8 of their guns not working. That is insane. I really don't want to have to keep my A-5 if I don't have to just in case this thing craps the bed on me.
Third question, How is the customer service with BT? Again, from what I have read this is all over the board. They are great to they don't return my phone calls. With the solenoid issue some people are having to fix it themselves, some are getting new ones and some are having to clean it out themselves. Let me know about your guys experiences.
I really love the upside to this gun and this gun is the perfect price and there is really nothing else out there unless I want to drop $900 on a bob long mtac (No thanks) and I am not a fan of tippmans anymore. But is the upside to this gun worth all the negatives if they still exist?
Look forward to hearing some responses, Thanks for you help sorry the post is the long.
