Review: Ordered this through Action Village and when I opened the box, all I could say was SWEEEET. The box comes like a stacked box. You open it up and you see the marker. Underneath it is the barrel w/shroud, the empty mock magazine and a barrel plug. Also it comes with cut-outs for the rip-clip. Everything is nicely packaged in foam cutouts.
Putting everything together the marker looks amazing. I tried to compare it to the real-deal with my depts. MP5s and its pretty close. Only minor things that were noticeable are some discoloration on the fore grip, stock and the sights and the trigger mechanism/selector switch. Other than that, it’s close to the real thing.
I haven’t shot/played with this for the review. But almost all BT/Tippmanns are gas hogs so I wouldn’t expect this to be any different from my BT Assault. Speaking of Assault, the Delta is much lighter than the Assault in my opinion.
The stock is made of hard plastic and it’s a 3-position stock. The sights, to me seem a little cheap but I’m thinking of replacing them in some way. Maybe with the real metal ones.
The magazine is a cool feature that you don’t see a lot on stock mil-sim paintball markers. This comes with a magwell and a hollowed 9mm magazine. I like it for the looks and I can practice "reloading" when I am at home. You can actually remove the magazine from the magwell with the ambidextrous release that is between the magwell and trigger frame or by pressing the magazine release on the right side of the magwell. This is harder to do, due to the distance between the trigger and button because of the gas line.

Another cool feature is on the barrel shroud. Reason is because it haves a charging handle. Although it does not cock and load the paintball marker, it adds to the realism of the marker. You’re able to pull back the charging handle and then “HK slap” the handle as if you were really loading a gun.
Everything is placed by screws. You can remove the magwell and the upper portion of the MP5 body shroud. When doing so, you get a basic BT-4 marker. Also you can move the magwell further (closer to barrel) or closer depending on your preferences. I like mine closer to the gas line, 1 for realism, 2 for me to grab onto for a tighter stance. That’s just me.
I would definitely recommend this for any woodsball/scenario player. Also even for a beginner just getting into the sport. I love it due to the looks, realism and also I can use it for practice when the real steal is not around me.
Right now I’m giving this thing a 9/10. Reason is because I have not shot it yet at this time. Will likely do on the 18May08.
Conclusion: Get it and Rock it.
