bt designs egrip

JT 50ci 3000psi HPA
Empire realoader (clear)
custom pro style drop forward

Strengths: Very Very Reliable
Weaknesses: Stock barrel is only 8 inches.
Review: I got my BT for my birthday. The gun has been very reliable even with the E-Grip. The stock barrel is kind of loud but a longer barrel will make all the difference. The E-Grip is capable of around 15bps whcich is fast for a Tippmann. The gun is very acurate with the 14ich freak jr and the .689 insert. I use Origin Frontline or Orgin Signature Series.
Conclusion: For the price of the gun you cant get a better deal. also the reliability is incredible.
10 out of 10

couple of points...

-Wrong, a longer barrel doesn't normally make a difference. Now, maybe more porting holes, different pattern or different barrel, but not normaly length. Second, Once you go past 12-14 inches, performance drops because there is drag on the ball.

This Marker is NOT a true Tippmann, it's made by Bet Tippmann, a relative of the Tippmann family. He copied their design and I consider what they're selling to NOT be Tippmanns.

Correct me if I am wrong but Ben Tippmann is not just a relative of the Tippmann family but was directly involved in the design of both the 98C and the A5.

Ben moved away from Tippmann when he felt the company was no longer going in the original direction the company was set up with.

Looking at the new X7 i can understand why he set up BT,the X7 is alot of money for alot of plastic.

Dont get me wrong the 98C and A5 are excellant markers. But the X7 will need to be a excellant performer to justify the cost.

Also you mention that BT are not true Tippmanns, BT`s are not sold or marketed as Tippmanns.

If people want to call there BT`s Tippmanns thats upto them, If you like Tippmanns great if you like BT`s or any other marker then great. Who cares. Enjoy your paintballing its not really that important.
