Review: The Tippmann X7 is an extraordinary marker. It has really nice accuracy with just the stock gun at reasonable ranges. Its profile is thin and the hopper is low, making it just that much harder to spot. The weight, when I first saw the gun i thought it was going to be a tank, but the gun is made from Magnesium and is really light. The gun packs a punch and can send balls for a fairly long distance, and still allow them to break on the target. The cyclone feeder works great and i have not have any problems with the mechanics of the gun. The gun can easily be taken apart. Looks, what can i say, its an out of the box scenario style marker. The price is a little high for new players but for anyone who has played before the price is not daunting. Similar guns can be sold for hundreds of dollars more, so $300 is not that much.

The placement of the safety can be a slight problem for those of us with big hands. It is right on the side and rather than being a push button it is more of a switch and if it is not all of the way on "Fire" then the gun tends not to fire.

The paint, now this one could just be me, but moving from my 98 which could fire any type of paint without a problem to this one just took some getting used to. This is not a big problem it is just that thin shelled paint seems to break in the gun a little more often then I would like, so thick shelled paint is needed.

The sight is another problem with the gun... the sight is very difficult to see through and doesn't help too much

The gun is an amazing gun in both looks and performance and I highly recomend it to any scenario players or those of those who have some experience paintballing. New players should not buy the gun unless they are positive that this is a sport that they can and will play often.
Conclusion: Buy the gun, it has quite a few pros, and very few cons.
