Review: ok. my first tippmann to own. ive used A-5s and 98 customs but this is my first tippmann gun. it does it for me.. it broke balls... first .. but .. thoes were just the balls.. dont use weak. or old paint in it.. Its a big gun.. so its weight is REALLY good for its size.

Im not listing price under weakness because paintball is an expensive sport. so dont complain!

I like the magnesium reciver.. its a nice touch, a pinch expensive but that shouldnt matter if your even considering this gun. It can give, and take beatings like a champ. The pushpin design is very handy..

The stock package i think looks REALLY nice.. (but im a big fan of the M4A1 so i had to) but its made to be YOUR custom marker, there is a few good mods out there.. and hopefully more to come.

The insides are pretty much a5, lol, but i do like the Enhanced Pnumatics cyclone thats in it. and the new safety is a GOOD! feature. i like it better. it already comes with a mag, and forgrip.

Internals are very straight forward like the a5.. soo easy to clean and oil up.
-------------------Weaknesses---------------------------
Well. there isnt much.. id say the weight of everyhing on the gun. but it IS a woodsball gun. i just would have expected it to be lighter with the magnesium body and all that...

some of the mods you can get are quite pricy also.

every time ive played with it so far ... ive heard an internal leaking*** but my friend that owns hitman paintball might be able to help me with that..
Conclusion: I rate the gun a 10 not based on alll paintball guns... Just on what i thought it would be before i got it.. its everything youd expect and more. its a good pro gun, or starter gun.

If anyone knows how to stop the minor leakage inside.. jsut comment on the rivew thankyou :)

nice review, can you post a review on your bolt? i bought one and i have yet to play with it, and im worried that i made the wrong choice.

I had some aluminum shavings causing the leak in mine. Pull your tombstone down and blow up into your valve a couple times, and see if anything falls out. Then wipe the tombstone clean and drop some oil on to the face of it before shoving it back in.

For me that took care of the problem. Hope this helps.
