More than 5 years
Products Used:
I've used a classic stock mag with sp progressive, run on nitro, I've also used and a-5, spyder classic, spyder xtra, spyder tl, brass eagle stingray, tippy 98c and prolite, and a bushmaster bko. NOTHING REALLY IS SIMILIAR TO THE TIPPY CP WITH RESPONSE TRIGGER.
Marker Setup: Tippy cp with R/T trigger, 68/3000 psi pure energy nitro tank, 12volt revy. 12in J&J ceramic barrel. extreme rage rubber grips(clear). some aftermarket foregrip( i think by lapco). some diy mods that keep gun, in conjunction with the r/t, going full auto basically!! And also the rubberband mod to keep your feed neck from wobbling.
Get some new grips (dont get extreme rage rubber grips , then dont stretch enough to fit even after soaking them in hot water), a new barrel, definately use nitro or get a palmers stabalizer if u must use co2. Maybe a new foward grip,(mine broke into 2 pieces very easily)
Strengths: Fast for mech 15bps, Easy to maintain, great looks, great price,r/t =speed
Weaknesses: Slow hopper=chops-orama, pain to take apart and assemble the 1st time.
Review: This gun is sweeetttt. I can easily outshoot my classic mag. The r/ t trigger takes a little time to learn to sweetspot it but once u figure it out it its unbelievable. I was test shooting it the 1st day i got it and with no adjustments at all, the paint was hitting one on top the other from 50-60 ft away in like 6 round bursts. BTW i was using junky paint (afterburner). This gun is a pain to take apart and assemble the 1st time unless u have had previous experience with tippys. After 3-4 tries u should have mastered taking apart and assembling your gun so no big deal after that. The hardest part i found to get to stay in was the little metal peice on the site on the front of the gun. I kept thinking to put in in position before i closed up the gun, (which wont work, it will pop out.) . The trick is to not set the metal thing into positon till u have most of your gun back together and leave a little crack in the front to slip in the site, then close up your gun. Also, the feed neck sometimes wobbles but u can fix that by putting some pieces of rubberband between the feed neck and the gun. This gun loves oil so be sure to oil it religiously for best performance. Other than that this gun is great!
Conclusion: This is a great gun for the money. If u want to get a 98c, save up a bit more money and get the tippy cp with r/t trigger installed instead. Trust me you'll like it a lot more, and you're getting a lot more for your money. 9 out of ten because the dis and reassembly is hard the 1st two times or so.

Why do you say definitely get a palmer stabilizer if "you must use co2" it doesn't really matter if you run co2 through a Tippmann they are designed for co2.. yes HPA is more consistent but there is no reason you cant use co2 on a tippy!
