Products Used:

Recommended
Upgrades:
Barrel, power tube (mine came split from the factory), I would recommend having an airsmith go through the whole thing before you have to use it.
Strengths: Aftermarket support and Marketing
Weaknesses: Cheaply manufactured, Fit of the parts are poor and the barrel is the worst.
Review: I have owned many markers from Tippmann over the years and have been satisfied with all of them until now. I recently purchased the X7 thinking I was upgrading from my A5. The first problem I had was paint breaking. About one in ten would break. I disassembled the marker, cleaned everything Inspected parts ect.. Still breaks. Turns out the barrel had a defect in the material that was snagging the ball. Ok, the store I purchased it from was very helpful and replaced the barrel. Problem two, the velocity would suddenly drop off as if the Co tank wasn't screwed in. This happened four times in the first day of use. I looked everything over and found the ASA had a sharp edge that was shaving brass from my bottle feed neck and sending the small pieces of brass into the air system. I deburred the ASA and cleaned out the valve and cyclone ram and that solved that problem. The third problem was the bottom of the cyclone feeder had such bad casting flash it would randomly break paint in the cyclone. I had herd of others having the same problem and all that was needed was to sand down the flash on the bottom of the cyclone. All of this added up to a very frustrating time with this marker and I wouldn't recommend it to anyone.
Conclusion: In preforming all the fixes and looking the parts of the marker over I could see the quality I had come to expect from a Tippmann marker was no longer. Maybe it is a sign of the times, or I just happened to get a bad one. At this point though, considering the cost vs. quality I feel this marker is one of the worst I have ever owned.

Man that sounds horrible. You probably got a lemon. What was your model number off the line?

Don't think that all X-7's are like that you must have got a bad one. I have one and put a lot of mods on it and it is unbelieveable. I think the best upgrades for this gun are all of the tech t mods. I am now shooting 26 bps and do not brake paint.
