Review: Okay, I started playing paintball about 2 and a half years ago and have owned a BT4 all but 1 month of my paintball experience. I purchased my first BT4 because a buddy of mine had one and I liked the way it shot over his 98 custom as well as the physical appearance. Since I have been playing, I have played with a few other markers and still feel that the BT4 comes out on top. Performance is about the same with my BT setup and an A-5 but there are several things that bring the BT4 ahead. For starters the BT can take upgrades (except barrel) from the 98 custom which has been out forever. This is good because the price is cheaper and you can find them anywhere. The A-5 on the other hand can only take upgrades meant for the A-5 due to the design change that Tippman went with after firing Ben Tippman. This includes the X-7. The X-7 also has a different upgrade bolt on pattern that the A-5 and BT and the 98 custom. Another great thing is that in the 2+ years that I have owned it I have finally run into my first problem! My valve is leaking where the braided hose screws into the marker. This is going to cost me 40 bucks. Whoopty freakin do! My buddy has a speedball gun that goes into the shop every time he plays. Its crazy!
Conclusion: Okay, I was running out of room up there. Either way, to conclude my ramblings, this marker is fantastic. Its simple, accurate, beautiful, and gets the job done. Most importantly, it doesn't cost a fortune. I have since bought a 2nd BT4 for a backup and sold my Proto SLG which was broken. I hope this helps and if you have any questions feel free to ask them on my teams forum at Thanks!
