Review: Prologue (Intro):

When I went to the store to purchase my X7, I was very anxious & excited to see what it was like, and of course, I held it and checked it out, but the real decision came after when the employee asked me if I was just gonna get Basic, or if I wanted the RT Version? Of course I chose the RT version and I just want to say that it was far beyond my original expectations!

Review:

Actual Gun:

The gun itself is very stylish, light and durable, plus, it has a good feel to it. The clip is easy to remove, the gun isn't too bad for maintenance, and has a wire on the side to slow down or speed up the response trigger, so that you don't waste too many paintballs.

Performance:

The day I got it I went paintballing, and the gun pretty much spoke for itself. When I first shot it, it scared the **** out of me, because it was loud, and fast, making it look extremely intimidating to opponents. The accuracy was also good, going straight and hard for good amount of time, before angling back down, making it easy to eliminate opponents. It was very maneuverable around corners and on window sills.

Pricing:

The X7 RT (preinstalled) for me was 455$ CDN, it's price is somewhat high and the upgrades are too, making it pretty difficult to customize it in your own way, without exceeding approx. 600$ CDN. It's gonna be hard to imagine what the price of a fully customized X7 E-Grip.

Design:

The X7 was obviously based on the AR-15, but uses a new magnesium reciever making it light and more durable, the clip allows field stripping / maintenance, so you can fix a problem and then get right back into the fight. The new picatinny rail allows easy sight & scope add-ons, as well as the push-pin system on the gun and the modular shroud.

Loader:

The new X7 loader is really good, because of it's ridgeline type of design, it can reflect paintballs off of it, it is offset for clear aiming sight capabilities. The cyclone feed is one of the very good and new upgrades due to it's capabilities (enhanced performance), being able to shoot up to 20 BPS without batteries & with RT lets just say the opponents will have their hands full.

Overall:

The gun is good, i like it very much, it was well designed and thought out, it is very customizable (but at a somewhat bad price), and it is light weight and manueverable, therefore I would give it (10 - Pricing (0.3)) 9.7, rounded up to 10.
Conclusion: If your getting a new paintball gun soon, make it the X7, because when **** hits the fan, its the kind of gun you'll want to be with. Just, if you do get it, try to stop your temptation of wanting to go Insane with it, because I tell you now it is very tempting to shoot it.

Pardon my ignorance, I just picked up the x-7 r/t the other day. I have had several other markers over several years, but never a tippman. And the r/t is a little foreign to me currently. But I was curious about when you stated "has a wire on the side to slow down or speed up the response trigger, so that you don't waste too many paintballs."

How, and wear do I find this wire? How is it adjusted? I didn't see anything in my manual. Hoping for a tip, or link on this feature.

It's not actually a wire aroper, but a screw with a small air line running from it. It does take some time to dial it in properly, but once you set it, it works awesome. With the right trigger pressure, you can fire a ton of paint out of this marker.
All you need to adjust it is a flat head screwdriver, maybe a jeweler's screw driver, and you are good to go. Whats nice is, if you use that jeweler's screw driver, it will fit into the storage compartment in the magazine.
Take your time adjusting the R/T though, cause you will burn through a ton of paint setting it up (at least i did :) ).
