Vote then explain further. Be ready to back up your statements! So, do you think TM is really a high-end to you?
This will NOT become a "TM vs x-brand" thread! This is strictly to discuss Tokyo Marui!

HECK YES!!!! They are the most reliable brand stock. They can last a long time if you leave the gear box alone. The downside is that they don't shoot at 280, more like 255-263fps. I have the ak47 and it's beast.

Yes..... I believe they have always been considered a high end. Here, in my opinion, is what it takes to be a high end:

Durability. If you have a gun that shoots like a systema, but only last 100 BBs, it's still not a good deal.

Performance: If you have a gun that is really reliable but shoots like a mini, you might WISH it would break.

I don't car about internals as much as everything else, but usually if a company goes to the trouble of putting all kinds of trades and stuff on the gun, it's probably cause they have good internals. But I really just need a gun to be realistic. As long as it isn't in a clear plastic body, it's fine. (Well, ...... kinda....)

I can only say their reliability and their price would qualify them as a high end. If you buy one, you probably got ripped off.

I voted Yes.
Reasons:
1. Excellent hop-up=great range and accuracy, with the sacrifice of lower velocity.
2. All-around good internals
3. Excellent reliabilty
4. One of the oldest and most respected airsoft company (hey, they were the first company to make an AEG)

@OmD: I'm curious to see why you think you'd be getting ripped off with buying a TM.

^^ They are a rip off imo because they run upwards of 250$ for a plastic bodied AEG with average internals. The QC is there, no doubt, but it is not worth the 250$ asking price.

Now in AG's case, TM is really his only option for a P90, which I can under stand. But why would some one want to buy lets say, and MP5, or a G36, or a M4/M16. When CA, ICS, G&G and G&P have full metal bodied, high performance versions of the replicas mentioned above, for only 20-30$ more?

TM is kind of a high-end. Their duribilty is great, but (I am just voicing my opinion here) who wants to spend x amount of dollars for a TM when you can get a CA for the same price (Im not saying that CA is better or anything like that).

Because they WILL last longer, and with a tuned hop-up, are not too far behind CA, if not better, in terms of range.

Hahaha......no. I bought one and it's performance is outstanding. Perhaps you just got a bad one. And to your other post, maybe people can't get $20-$30 more. And not ALL marui guns are plastic, the thompson, type89(I think), the mac11 looks like it, and the ak74m deffinately is.

I believe that the laws in Japan prevent TM from having metal AEGs.

Then TM has broken those laws a few times over.
The TM M14 features a full metal receiver.

It is really the only "full metal" gun TM produces.

Ok, now that I have had my P90 for a while, I will tell you what I like/dont like in more detail:

Pros:
Performance is outstanding. Accuracy is better than my friends Echo1s, which also gives it better range. ROF is very nice, even with the upgraded spring. Externals are about as good as you can get without going metal. The plastic is very strong, and the trades gove it more realism.

Cons:
Either mine was defective, or the people who say plastic spring guides wont break were dead wrong.
It cost twice as much as an Echo1. It took 28 hours of work to pay back my dad.

It IS a high end in my opinion, especially since the accuracy is better that the CA M16 i had the chance of firing. (And P90 disassembly is "So easy, a Caveman could do it. Wink )

It is a high end brand. It has excellent internals and great hop up. The low velocity is because of Japanese law limits the power of the guns. It cannot be more than 1 joule
