In stock form for now. Soon to have a Folding stock, J&J Ceramic Barrel, and Galil forgrip.
See above. Folding stock and Galil forgrip.
1) is it's price. 2) Is it's durability.
The Orings the factory uses isnt great, and the weight.
The Tacamo is a great looking scenario marker for a really good price. It is extremly inexpensive, easy to field strip, and durable. My personal Tacamo was literly ran over with a car and took no damage what so ever. Wiped it down to get the tire tracks off the body and it was good to go. The stock barrel shoots through breaks fairly well. It is not ported so it is fairly loud, louder than most markers.
The orings the factory uses arent the best. Takes about two minutes to strip the marker and replace these with regular bottle orings (depending on where you got yours, my scenario supplier does this before they ship them out.)
And the weight can be a little much for the younger players. It's made with real AK parts. None of that fake plastic stuff. This makes it far more durable than the rest, but it makes it little heavier for the younger players.
There is already a growing after market for this marker. One company is already building different variants of the AK out of the Tacamo, such as the RPK heavy machine gun, Dragunov, Krinkov, Galil, folding stocks, you name it.
If you are wanting a good looking scenario marker that will turn heads, but not break the bank, then the Tacamo is for you. Easy to clean and maintain. And you dont have to worry about it getting damaged running into a tree or diving into a trench or bunker. Built tough like the real AK's with many real AK parts.

What kind of problems is he having with it? Just unsatisfied with it or something specific? let me know, I will check with our tech people at the field. They have been modding them for awhile so they may know a fix on it. Tell him to get in touch with Archon. The rep I talked to at a big game said they want to know about any problems to make sure they get corrected.

We had one team member that milled out the brackets and put on a J&J Ceramic. Worked out very well. I am doing the same thing. Shorter barrel, then adding a folding stock. Tacamo I believe is coming out with the folding stock for this marker like they put out for the A5. Makes it far more compact and then the Ceramic takes care of any breaks.

Heard a paintball buddy ran into a metal pole at a game a couple weeks ago. Heard it was pretty amusing...
By the way, Tacamo now has their site up and running, with a gun builder adn on line owners manuals for the Type 68's. I know there were several people trying to get scans. http://www.tacamopaintball.com/
You mentioned earlier about Tacamo dealers who wants to know about gun problems.
I had my gun for about a game before it started leaking. Can not find problem replaced and oiled every single o-ring still leaks, and velosity is really low, about 30 yards.
Any help will be appreciated.
www.tacamopaintball.com top right corner of the page where it says contact. use that format to send an email to Doug Brown, VP of Archon. He is the gentleman over Tacamo and can get what ever it is corrected, and he stands behind his products.
To me I would have said the orings because they had a bad batch on the original Type 68's, but since you replaced them, sounds like the problems the Spyders had with bad cup seals. But I'm not sure if they use the same set up like that or not. They are very simular to the Spyders.
If you dont hear anything from Doug in a few days, Hit the Tacamo section over at MilSimEmpire.com. He is in there about every morning.
Hey i'm just wondering what kind of hopper do you use with it, and it is a good gun. Is it like, good quality and does it feel good. If you've used like, the MR2 or a BT or a Tippmann a5 or something like that, would you tell me how it compares to them? thanks
