    Out of the TM and WE G18c's, which would you guys prefer and why? Im currently leaned more towards the WE because of the orange tip and how easy it would be to put a surpressor on. But in overall durability, I dont know how long it would last. If possible, please create some time of Pro-Con chart for both, thanks in advance :)

    Go with TMs. Everyone on this site will say the same. TMs will last you so much longer, and wont break after 2 weeks of use.

    Do you know any other brand that will last long and be full auto? I basically just want a long lasting full auto glock

    TM is your best bet, but there is also KSC.

    I don't think a PRO/CON thing is needed when comparing a WE gun and a TM.

    But I'll attempt one.

    First things first I'm comparing the TM G18c (which I own) with the WE G18c (which my friend owns, and I've been able to try a few times), so this won't be the best, but its already obvious as to which one you should get. So here we go.

    TM G18c

    PRO's:
    -Accurate (thanks to TM's outstanding hopup unit)
    -Smooth operating
    -Nice external quality
    -Great internals
    -Upgradeable
    -Good magazines (less likely to leak)

    CON's
    -Plastic slide (like nearly every TM gun, it will be plastic, but it is very durable)
    -Lower FPS (this ones debatable, I myself don't see it as a CON, but others might)




    WE G18c

    PRO's
    -Metal slide
    -Higher FPS (again this is debatable)
    -Upgradeable (BUUUTT... A lot needs to be upgraded, so less of a PRO then TM's)

    CON's
    -Cheap externals (Pot metal slide, cheap feeling plastic used for the lower)
    -Weak accuracy and range
    -More likely to have leaky mags
    -More prone to break because of bad internals/externals
    -Chances that the gun won't even work right in BRAND NEW condition



    I could go on and on, but I'm not.

    So, if you want an excellent Glock get TM, and if you want a headache in a box get WE.

    Nuff said, but if you do want to buy a WE check the classifieds a guy selling a good set up for a WE glock

    If this is your first Glock: get the Marui 18C and save yourself the headaches.

    KSC is also an option, though I would still go with TM because of all the aftermarket parts.

    The WE is garbage. Don't even consider it unless you want a issue.

    Agreed. I've had more success using mine as a throwing star than as a gun. I've never owned a Tokyo mauri, but I hear they are nice. Either way almost anything is better than we... Lol

    I got my TM five seven from ehobbyasia, it only takes about 3 days to get there. The only disadvantage is the shipping..

    No, atleast not that I know of. But they have some really hard-to-find guns man, and not at a ridiculous price. Check 'em out. They only sell guns though, nothing more. Could be a problem.

    I have a socom gear timberwolf. Its WE stock but upgraded. I put in a new outerbarrel and tight bore and this gun is great. The regular WE ones might not be but the timberwolf is fine.

    The Timberwolf also isn't a Glock. It sort of resembles one, but definitely is not a Glock. Much like the ATP, it's an attempt to get around Glock's trademark likeness rights issues.

    What the hell are you talking about? Ehobby is a full scale airsoft shop that sells guns, mags, bbs, batteries, accessories, tactical gear, and everything else. Ehobby, just like the other big Hong Kong retailers, has a wider selection than any of the major US retailers.
