"Bought this recently from my local dealer and was very impressed overall. The only issue I have is that the description states that it has an accessory rail. While this is kinda true, there are no retention slots on said rail. Which means that your options are extremely limited as to what accessories you can use. Have to take a star off for that.

"I love the gun but the one I got came with no threaded barrel and the orange tip was glued in so I ended up wasting money on a mock silencer so if you do order this guy just make sure you have a pistol with a threaded barrel or a removable orange tip

"Maybe buyer's remorse but I wished I had paid more to get a TM Hi-Capa as the slide on the WE Tech jams frequently. I have to hit the back of the slide forward and up to get the slide move. This seems to be a common problem for the WE. Even though I haven't used a TM I've heard good things about it. I don't think the jamming problem I'm having with the WE Tech is worth the difference in price. Especially when I play with the pistol as a primary/only weapon and not as just a sidearm.

The pistol does shoot with propane the same as it does with green gas so that's a huge plus as propane is a lot cheaper. (I used 3 cans of green gas before I even tried using propane. The jamming started with the first can of green gas and within the first 300 rounds). I've read that the TM's plastic slide needs to be replaced or will need to be replaced sooner if you use green gas/propane as the TM is designed to use lower pressure duster gas. Even factoring in the cost of a new metal slide, I think a TM would be the better choice.

I do still use green gas during the last couple of games to flush the propane smell out of the gun and mags and to make extra sure that everything is lubed.
