Review: This is the first new marker I have bought. Being a woods-ball player and former military, more I play with BT Tactical, the more I like it.
Marker is quite accurate, little heavy, feels robust, is well balanced w/ remote and seems to be a Tippmann clone. (which are known for durability)
This not a gun for people who feel uneasy about extra weigh and size. Myself, I feel right at home, with realistic gun design vs. star wars sci-fi looking guns.
Crawling, sprinting, shooting in awkward positions is easy with the use of hand-guards and the adjustable front hand grip.

Marker does not require but could use a sling. With any marker it gets tiring having to hold the marker all the time while off the field, or walking on or off it. I got a cheap sling before the last day I played. World of difference.
The carrying handle needs to come off in order to clear some of the motorized hoppers.
Small price to pay for uninterrupted ammo supply.

These days you can get these for about $270. I recommend the remote system for it, but a 20oz smaller co2 tank will attach to the gun stock.
People with Tippmann A5 and 98's can upgrade their markers to look somewhat like this model but they will likely spend as much as this marker is worth.

Conclusion: BT 16 Tactical, looks good, turns heads and gets asked about allot.
It is accurate, durable, comparable to Tippmann markers.
I would suggest buying this one if you like playing woods-ball. I'm having a great experience with it, and haven't had any issues with it so far.

It's a Tippmann clone in one way and not in another. Basically, it isn't Tippmann Pneumatics, which is generally seen as "the" Tippmann, but this was made by Ben (I think) Tippmann, who (I've been told) designed the A-5.

yeah, thats right, BT stands for "Ben Tippman"

yeah, but he's no longer a part of Tippman pneumatics. The BT line is his only little thing.
