Review: I was originally very excited to see that Tippmann was making a pistol. I bought one a month or so ago and have since used it twice. The first clip I fired was fine and I was happy with the performance. Upon loading the second clip, the pistol chopped a ball and coated both the clip and the barrel in paint. I have since had many more breaks (at least one per clip). Even with different brands and sizes of paint I have not had better results.

I was surprised that Tippmann would put out such a questionable product. For years, I have used an A5 and a 98C and loved both.
Conclusion: I have yet to be able to fire more than one clip in a row without a jam or chop. I would not recommend this pistol to anyone and hope to dump it on Ebay sometime soon.

I solved the ball chopping issue. I'm assuming you did what 90% of people did and kept some of your spare mags in your pocket, on a hot day. No matter what type of paint, the balls are going to warm up too much, and get sticky/squishy causing breaks and jams. I had the same problem, then I switched to Marbalizers and put the extra mags in a pouch away from my body heat and the gun shoot great. And when there is an occasional break, you do really have to clean it out well to prevent more breaking, so that is a flaw, but if you keep your mags cool and use a hard shell paint, it shouldn't be a problem.
