So as most of you already know, BT has released a new woodsball marker built off of Mini Technology. To cut straight to the point, I think this gun may have some serious potential and I'm looking for any personal reviews from fellow players that have used this marker. Now here's what I don't want to hear........ NO EXTREME BIAS. It can sometimes get a bit childish. If you aren't a fan of BT markers or you have never had any experience using this marker then don't bother commenting. But hey! If you have used it, fill us in!

Thanks!

If the person on the other end of your gun does not walk away eagerly anticipating the next game because of your actions,
you have failed as a paintballer.

Team F.E.A.R's hands on first look at the brand new BT TM-7!

*NEW*Written Review

My initial impressions of the gun are that of great happiness. The stock barrel is insanely accurate but a bit on the loud side. This is due to it being so short (9 inches and .691 Bore Size) and the porting not coming until the very end of the barrel. Though it is not a problem for me it maybe for others.
The gun is extremely light for a fully decked out milsim gun (2.5 pounds)...even with a hopper on the gun there is still nothing to it!
The kick in ramping and FA is barely noticeable out of the box and will only get better as the spring breaks in. Just secure the stock on your shoulder and you're good to go.
The gun is also very efficient from the get go. I was shooting a full hopper of paint and only using 250-300 PSI in my CF 68/4500. Again once the reg breaks in this will only get better.
Switching firing modes is fast and easy. You can go between every firing mode in a matter of seconds and be prepared for what ever the battle brings your way.
The battery changing system is by far the best I have seen on any gun. It is incredibly fast and easy, you can change a battery out in less than 5 seconds with no tools.
The velocity is also very easy to adjust requiring only an allen key small enough to fit in the adjustment hole that needs to be turned near the battery door.
The trigger has 4 adjustment locations that can change the feel of the trigger to meet anyone‚€™s preferences. I choose to keep it stock as I loved the way it felt right out of the box. Was a very light pull and very responsive.
It also come with an awesome barrel sock, a helpful manual, and a nice parts kit with a spare of almost everything you need to rebuild the gun including an extra set of detents and lube.

Now onto my gripes....come on nothing is perfect.
The stock does not lock into place when the stock is pushed all the way in. This is not a bad thing really as it makes pulling the stock out very easy to do when needed in the heat of battle. There are indents in the stock for it to lock in that position, but it looks like the stock won't slide in far enough to catch them.
The foldable fore grip is only 2 position, open and closed. Most others are 3-5 position. Although it is obvious it is a cheap grip it is still very comfortable.
Due to the way the hopper sits on the marker you are limited as to what you can mount on the back rail. Most large dot sights and scopes will not clear the hopper. A ripclip, qloader, or an offset mounting rail will fix this.
The stock grips are kind of hard, but still very nice and have finger grooves for increased grip.
It hasn't happened yet, but I am afraid the select fire switch labels are going to wear off with continued mode switching. The same way as my X7's did.
You have to split the shell to get to the bolt. Not anymore work than an A5 or and X7 but compared to the Mini and other speedball type markers this is a lot of work.
First time I took it apart I was afraid of breaking the eye and battery wires on the inside of the gun when I had to disconnect them to remove the internals. As long as you go slow and are careful you have nothing to worry about though.

All in all I would give this gun a 9/10 right out of the box. For the price you pay for this marker you are getting one heck of a value! Nothing needs to be done to this marker for it to compete with any other gun you will run into on any field.

Hello Gents,
I canít say enough good things about the TM7. I played with mine for the first time this past weekend; even in a downpour it continued to function flawlessly. I was playing with a gravity-fed hopper so the rate of fire was not at itís best, but once the rip-clip is available it will resolve that issue. I would highly recommend one. I would also recommend the 4 inch Stiffi/SO C-Series barrel with the Apex adaptor. What a sunning combination; Iíll post a picture when I can, but it played as well as it looked.

SOGSnakebite I see your running it with a remote looks good. I'm waiting on a thread saver for mine becuase my shop said I should use one what do you think I read that post on PB nation about that kid that says it flexs. I shot one with a big fiber tank and I didn't feel that what about you? OH yeah hows the ripclip?
