Tippmann 98 barrel thread
Field stripping would be insane.
The Tippmann Project Salvo is everything that the Alpha Black Tactical should have been. Cosmetic upgrades can be easily added using either the 4 rail barrel shroud or the top flat rail. The marker is threaded for Tippmann 98 barrel threads so there are a ton of readily available after market barrels. The marker is very sturdy and feels like it could take a good beating. The multi-position rear stock is a dream. It slides easily and when you do not want to have it in use the stock folds against the gun.
One problem that I had found with the gun is that the barrel shroud is held on by a notch held in place by a screw. With the stock barrel this shroud feels very sturdy due to the fact that the barrel pushes the stock tightly to the frame. After installing an aftermarket barrel I had found that the stock felt a bit loose. I had fixed this problem by adding a rail raiser that extended over the shroud and base of the gun.
I would absolutely recommend this marker. It is highly upgradable and has the feel of a well made product.
you don't need to do anything to the marker to install a cyclone, get the 98 custom cyclone and it fits right on, there is a screw on the right side of the marker that comes out and you screw in a small airline from the cyclone feed and you're good to go
