Basically you can't go wrong with a TM pistol. hey are by far the best make out there. Reliable and easy to get spares for the rare occasions they do break.

The TM P226 is a little beast as well.

yep the TM Sig p226 is a very robust lil side arm. Sturdy build and normaly hits whatever you point it at. Pick up at least one extra mag a holster that will form around it and that's you set.

I found that the Hicapa and the sig are 2 pistols that are weird shapped and need a holster that will adjust to fit comfortably so choose carefuly.

Hope this helps.

Cheers

That is true about the P226 fitting oddly in a holster.

If you can get a SERPA type holster that is moulded specifically for it. I used a WAS MOLLE holster and the mag release kept getting pressed in.

  • Guns: tm desert eagle
    custom m4 converted from m16
i have a tm desert eagle the model before the hardkick so its an early hop up model.

has never broken nor jammed mag freezes up after 3 fills which is very good for a gbb.but you wont have much luck finding one and no mine isnt for sale lol.

so save up that extra bit of cash and get a tm is what im trying to say.

i also have a tm m16 converted into a m4 shorty custom with metal gear box uprated motor slightlty tighter barrel uprated spring. not sure on fps of late.

but even upgraded the tm has never broken
