    Hey guys,

    First of all, big thanks to LilShady for talking to me and helping me with my decision.
    That said, I got a TM 5-7!!!

    Ordered it today, will post pics when I get it.
    Is there anything I should know? Also just out of the top of my head, I still need an adaptor and to lube the gun with duster gas right? Could I use green gas/propane with it?

    Yes you can use propane. You should add lube to the gas, unless you are using green gas, about every 5-10 fills.

    I take down the gun and clean/lube after every skirmish, but i baby my guns, once every 2-3 skirmishes should be fine.

    I wouldn't use propane. TM guns are designed for HFC134A gas. While they may run on green gas or even propane for a little while, the high pressure of those gasses will guaranteed break something, most likely your slide. use Duster gas, as that's the closest you can get to hfc 134a without buying automotive AC gas and finding an adapter or actual 134a, which is expensive in the states.

    Yes another 5-7 owner. I use Green Gas in my 5-7 but I wouldn't use propane. I am looking for a holster for mine for christmas but can't find one anywhere. Shady got any suggestions? You might be going through this problem once you get yours. I have been searching and Searching but can't find one anywhere. I haven't seen a lot of love on holsters that the 5-7 can use. Over all congratulations and I hope you enjoy your new gun.

    Been using propane for 2 years, no issues. Even in Texas heat.

    Yes. Airsoft innovations makes one for about $5.

    There is no difference between green gas and propane besides the silicone oil. I use a Blackhawk Serpa for both my Marushin and my TM 5-7s. Works great.

    Also, do you guys think I would find an adaptor at the field (combat city outdoor in orlando)? AND I suppose I cant use the same adaptor for Duster gas and Propane? (sorry, its my first GBB)

    No problem we were all like this with our first GBB. And yes if your wondering the 5-7 is my first GBB. Great gun. Yea the link is in here if you want the holster. Yea I don't think you can use a propane adaptor in a duster gas. I am open to all questions about this gun. By the way lube your slide it's important. O yea did I tell you yet that I out shot a chinese clone sniper rifle in a shooting competition. After you bring this gun to a field you will get major fan boys lol.

    Just one last question: where do I find the adaptor? (i.e. Walmart, field, random walk-in store..)

    I am not sure but someone other than me can help you with that. I have no experience with adaptors. Ya people who actually know something about Airsoft guns will say," dude is that a 5-7." That's when you say Yes Yes it is.

    Hahahaha I guess they could put that in the features huh? Just hope the gun doesnt get TOO popular, cause then we'd lose the attention :D

    Well, I also just ordered Airsoft Innovations adaptor KIT, that comes with silicon lube, and both propane and duster adaptors, so anyone needing to buy one, just get that and if you ever need a different type of gas, you wont need to buy another adaptor.
