View Full Version : TM EBB m4a1

Hi, i was just at redwolf, and noticed this new gun....
It says, its an EBB that runs off of a normal AEG battery? Does that mean that it will have the capabilities of a normal TM m4a1 but w/out full auto? Also, EBB are generally pretty cheap... i mean the pistols frun for $36? Any ideas or guess as to what this might go for? b/c I have some friends that would really like to get into airsoft but cannont spend the $300 needed to get an AEG(due to car payments etc...) Do yall think this would be a good choice for people like that? (provided its much cheaper than an AEG like the EBB pistols are)
any comments would be nice...

As far as I know they use AA batteries like the rest of the EBB guns. The FPS is supose to be very low ie 100 to 200 fps. They are designed for kids who plink around in their backyard. I will dig up more info.

"These EBBs take regular batteries in the foregrip just like AEGs"
sry, i missread that, and thought it meant AEG batteries...
So you think it wouldnt be worth it for my friends with very limited cash flow?
i mean, they dont want GBB, cause limited mag capacity, and thes say they hold 28+180 ( assume means208 rounds?) they just want something to run aroudn with, instead of spring pistols and rifles...

That is the new "boy" line that TM is beginning to sell!

Personally, I would not get it. From the pics, I see AA batteries in the stock. Ugh!

I'm with agro, and AA batteries are never good. If there looking a for a cheaper good gun GBB really are pretty good. I guess if they're really against GBB's that it might be an ok buy.
Am I the only one who thinks its unsafe to give a child a assault rifle replica? I can see the news now...

The new line is for 10+. That is the same age that they begin to allow paintball!

Paint guns don't look near as real as airsoft replica weapons. This is a tragedy for airsoft.
Paintball guns and airsoft guns are no where near comparable in looks. Imagine the incidents that could occur with a child (yes a 10 year old is a child) walking around outside with this or even taking it to school. A kid walking around with this could be shot a police officer if they make the wrong move, what is that going to do for airsoft?

One thing that everyone seems to forget is that Airsoft was not designed for Americans and their bleeding hearts. The rest of the world does not have all the paranoid soccer moms that want to isolate their child from the world.

In a parentally supervised environment, the "child" should be able to play airsoft. Hey, It is a hell of a lot safer than bottle rocket wars, isn't it? Every kids wants to "play military" when he's young, and this gives them a much better chance to have fun! They could be doing worse things!!!

SPLAT, most kids aren't exactly mature enough to realize the safety concerns, just like when they play with bottle rockets.
In a parentally supervised environment yes, but when the parents leave who knows. I dont know many parents who are going to sit and watch there child at all times.
