Ive shot both for quite a bit and from what I can tell the TM7 pretty much trumps the SP1 in every way.(except for the fact that it cant shoot under water and cant use CO2)

Under our vids section we have 4 videos of the TM7. Its an amazing marker. Very consitant...shoots any paint..a beautiful marker. The SP1 is nice..but Id choose a TM7 over it any day.

TM7 is definatly the better performer, but IMO you would be better off to just go with a Mini same as a TM7 just not Milsim. Spend the extra money on a nice loader and tank.

i see what your saying, but i do want that milsim look. the two are identical in looks almost. i just want to get my moneys worth and have the options for what ever upgrades i may want as well. and what is more reliable in the long run. i only buy a new gun once every 4 years if that so its gotta last.

Well if you want the milsim and performance then the TM7 is the best option for ya. I'm not sure about the reliability of the TM7 it's only been around maybe alittle more than a month, but the Mini is a solid gun so I'm sure the TM7 will be similar.

I have had my SP-1 for almost a year now as I got one of the first ones made.. It has been extremely reliable, consistent shooting, and slightly easier to maintain compared to the mini. (no eyes like the mini, but still never chops). No doubt that the mini/tm7 is an excellent marker with higher ROF ability, but it does come with a fairly high price over 2x that of the SP-1..
I think you could pick up an SP-1, have $ left over for paint, and you know you'll have a marker you can pick up at any time and it will just work, and work well..

Work hard, play hard.. In that order.

The tm7 is better because it is basically a milsim mini which is a god gun and the sp1 is a low level starter gun.

Both are good guns, here's a breakdown of pros/cons:

SP1
+ cheaper
+ can run CO2 (may be non-issue for you)
+ easier to disassemble/maintain

- requires aftermarket parts such as the stock for milsim appearance (and I only list this because you said you liked the milsim)
- not as high performance as the TM7 (but still far better than any Tippmann)
- center feed blocks line of sight (if that's an issue for you)


TM7
+ Superior performance
+ Only requires a barrel (if that, stock barrel is decent too), loader, remote (if desired), and HPA (the package comes with everything else)
+ no aftermarket parts needed aside from the barrel (if so desired to upgrade)
+ offset feed allows for top-sighting of marker (if that's an issue for you)

- requires HPA (may be non-issue for you)
- more expensive
- harder to disassemble for maintenance


I have a TM7, and a teammate of mine has a SP1. Again, they're both good guns, and it all comes down to your budget and your weight of the pros and cons.
