First off nice selection of gun I've been rocking a TM7 since they were new. Second to whoever is doing all crying or whining or bellyaching or whatever you want to call it about the "downgrade" comment, go cry somewhere else. I think someone posted a new pic of a new gun on pbn that needs some flamers to tell them what 2 guns had sex to make it. The way I took his comment and I'm sure kinda how he meant it was satirical, meaning with satire. It would be the same as if I told my buddies "guess I'll have to go the speed limit now cause I drive a Chevy ", its a joke if they got mad because of that then piss on em. The only reason to get butthurt is if he hit a nerve and maybe you might think its true that people who use electros lack some skill. But whatever its a game played by all kinds of different people who are all entitled to their own differing opinions.

Now that I said that back to the gun. I agree that the solenoid issue on the first gens was bs, hell I'm a dealer and they made me pay for the upgrade- not that I didn't argue with them. As for the bolt- I'm also a TechT dealer and a huge fan of they're products but the bolt wasn't worth the time to install it. Made no real difference, I've heard that the boss bolt is a good choice but haven't tried it yet. As for the trigger pick up a Flasc trigger a do the pen spring mod and it will feel like a whole new gun.

So as a dealer, do you inform players who come to you for a TM7 that it's a downgrade and then upsell them to a Trracer?

I would say upgrade to a Phantom or Sniper... a tracer isn't very 'high class'.

I wanted to use the same product line .

But yeah, worst pump stroke ever. It felt like dragging the pump across gravel.

Weight of the Ninja 35 ci is nice and light but I don't know the exact weight.

Efficiency - The TM7 gets 1 full rotor + 2.5 (140rnd) pods off the 3k fill... or just over 500 shots.

I don't carry lots of paint with me (although this gun is easier to eat through it) so I don't mind the smaller 'shooting capacity'... I'd prefer the tank on gun I've tried remotes and don't care for them.

Add to that it makes me play pistol more when I run out of air...

But then again I do have a 45 ci and 68 ci tank as well... but don't use them on the TM7 as it feels too long. the 45's "alright", but not compact as I want to be in the back.
