Tippmann 98 custom
I use a tippmann 98 custom w/ the E-grip, a dye broomstick barrel, and a low pressure system.
e-grip, response trigger, possibly stocks and fore grips if you like that. (you can go on the tippmann site and it shows you all the possibilities)
Speed of fire
No need for charging (of battery)
This gun is so customizable. It is extremely light, and can take a battle beatings like a tank. (don't test it just take my word that its strong) It is an amazing gun, and can shoot 15 bps easily. It is the only gun that has the air-thru-stock design. Again, it is so customizable. You can add stocks, carry handles, fore grips, barrels, e-grip, response trigger, double trigger, and mock mags. Like previously stated, you can make an mp5, AK-47, m-16, and m-4, all just with upgrades. On the official Tippmann site it states that all of them [upgrades] will be out by January 2007.
Give props to Tippmann for making (in my opinion) the best mechanical marker ever!
It was said before, but i completely agree, the A-5 upgrades will soon be knocked of the stores list, replaced by X-7 parts and upgrades. Over all, i think it is the best mechanical marker. But it is not a beginner gun due to price. This is a great gun and i recommend it!

This marker does 20 Balls Per Second. Personally, I have an A-5. It says on the site that it's 8 Balls Per Second stock and I know I do at least 8 if not more. So to do 15......insanely fast trigger finger. Plus, it's just the principle. Like the A-5 can do 17 Balls Per Second.
Yeah, but Tippmann is making the air-thru for this marker right off the bat.
first off, this gun will not replace the a5 cause if that was the case, there would be no more custom 98's around. but as for your comment on the 15 bps, it IS true because the x7 has a modified cyclone system that is supposed to reach 20 bps stock. and while dirtyA-5_77 says that the egrips are not out yet, you CAN order the guns with it already installed. just not as an individual component. Kinda like how BT made their magazine expansion chamber for guns like the BT Banshee and BT Swat had it b4 it was commercially available.
Well, this marker will decrease sales of A-5's, but it won't kill it. If you want a marker that is cheaper than the X-7 and is basically the same, you get the A-5. If you want all those rails and the extra 3 Ball Per Second, and want some parts in the magazine, you get the X-7.
This guns design was a joint venture between Special Ops Paintball and Tippmann. S.O. has been putting out modded A5's for years now making a superb product. I have shot their A5A2 and if this gun is anything like that, it will be great. My only dislike about the A5A2 was the EXTERNAL macroline leading to the air-thru stock on the cocking side of the gun, the design of the X7 addresses this issue with a steel INTERNAL air line that connects directly to the air-thru stock. To me, this is a huge improvement over the air-thru setups for the A5.

Dispute: This review is misleading: the review is for the X-7 stock, but infers a rate of fire that requires an electro-trigger that is not part of the reviewed package. Further comments by others refer to the hopper speed, not the cycle rate of the marker.
Plus, this looks like it was written by a dealer.
