BBs went where the barrel was pointed, but the stupid long trigger pull meant that the barrel wasn't necessarily pointed where you wanted it to be pointed. As a result, for practical purposes it doesn't hold a candle to something like the TM Five-seveN.
Thin I'll just stick with my 5-7, although that trigger pull isn't exactly short either.
I tried to like Five-seveNs, I really did, I just can't. I'm not sure if it's the layout of everything, or if it's because it feels like a toy. I'm aware that a TM Five-seveN IS a toy, but a real FN one feels like a toy also. When I hold a gun, I like to KNOW I'm holding a gun. As for the trigger pull, I've never fired a real or replica, so I can't really speak from that corner. I feel like 1911's typically have good trigger pull, for about 3 rounds, right when they run out of gas...
The TM has a relatively short trigger pull compared to its RS counterpart, and is accurate as hell. I'm still running some tests but with .28 BBs I was able to hit torso size at ~160 feet 7/10 times. I'm getting some .3s in soon and I'm hoping to get it as close to 200 as possible

As an owner of both the TM Mk23 and the 5-7, Knief is right- while the Mk23 is fantastic, it doesn't make a great secondary to switch to when the mag goes dry. It has a stupid long trigger pull, that even when kept on target makes it a pain in the nuts to shoot (I'm a big believer in the double tap).
The 5-7 is one of my favorite TM pistols, and I've owned quite a few throughout the years. It's got a really responsive trigger, which my trigger happy double tappin self just loves. Not to mention the sucker is crazy accurate. The biggest downside of the 5-7 for me is the cost of replacing a magazine when I FUBAR it and can't fix it, or lose one (last I checked, around $50, with no knockoffs available). Now, Fugazi is absolutely right: the TM 5-7 feels like a toy. Then again, so does the real steel version...
And the vast majority of the TM line, really- all their pistols are lightweight but durable plastic, and they just feel like solidly built toys. But personally, I've never come across a better pistol. They're rugged, high performance little things, and if you can look past it feeling like a toy, you really can't go wrong with any of them.
