Review: I Got this marker for Christmas and upon receiving it i was impressed by the weight( or lack thereof). I Frequently go to big scenario's where your on the field and in action on average of 8 - 10 hours. After that long, my modded A5 would get heavy(clip-sightrail-red dot scope). The x7 is lighter and I'm looking forward to the lighter load. Shooting accuracy is the same as the A5(because it is an A5).As always your accuracy depends on paint and paint to barrel match. I've played twice with this gun and enjoy the same solid reliability as my a5 and less weight to haul around. I am looking forward to getting the e grip when it is released. The only downside I've had was the fact that tippmann had such a lag time for releasing the stocks and mods and such.
Conclusion: Overall gets a 9 cause I'm a milsim player and love all things military(H&K 416)

Actually, the stock X-7 weighs more than the stock A-5. o.O It may seem lighter just because it's a lot bigger. Other than that, decent review. :)

my friend is thinking about getting a tippmann. He wants a cyclone system so that erases the 98 custom and he wants somethng with a lot of upgrades so that eliminates the pro carbine. do you think he should go with the a-5 so he has money for upgrades or the x7? he has a 300$ budget.

Go with the A-5 or get a 98 and buy the cyclone feed for it. You can get upgrades for both of them to bring it up to better performance than the X-7 with that limited of a budget. The X-7 is basically an A-5 with a different body and less of an aftermarket.
