I love this gun
-The problems i listed are NOT problems with the gun with the exception of the Co2 Cap freezing but..., come on, when i play with it im shootin rounds off fast so its expected to have some freezing issues

-I would like to see Tippmann make some sort of insulated Co2 Cap to keep the
pins in the cap from freezing so i can get the cap off when I need to change Co2
in the middle of a fire fight


BULLETS AND BARRELS 101
-THE BULLET SHOULD ALWAYS BE BIGGER THEN THE BARREL ITS
BEING SHOT FROM.
-LOOK IT UP

- For everybody that is having problems with the paintballs breaking,
its cause youre using low end or old paint
- I have the hammerhead barrel,
1.Take your barrel off the gun
2.Drop a paintball down the barrel,
-If the paintball drops all the way through, then the paintball isnt going to work.
-If tthe paintball gets stuck then you have some good paintballs
3. The rifling does no good if the paintball is not a tight fit
-The shot will be wild because the paintball is bouncing around in the barrel


*************HINCE WHY THE PAINTBALLS ARE BREAKING IN THE BARREL**********

- I believe its the same if you have the stock barrel.
********X-Ball paintballs seem to do well****************

- And finally it seems the BIGGEST PROBLEM people are having is the Co2 is not puncturing.
**************PEOPLE PLEASE OIL YOUR GUN**************************************

- The oil lubricates your guns working parts and PUNCTURING PIN

-Its easy drop 2-3 drops of oil on the puncturing pin before you put a Co2 in
-You will need to do this about every 6 clips to keep your
puncturing pin working properly.
-This means you need to carry oil out on the field with you. You
should put the oil in a ziplock bag so it won't leak on you.

-As long as your gun is oiled well you can pop off as many rounds as fast as you
want with NO PROBLEMS.

- The rest of the gun will oil its self as you shoot
************************NOTE********************************
*************

-Dont put any object into the Co2 compartment to get a better puncture,
it has nothing to do with it, Tippmann knows what they are doing , theyre not going to make a mistake that big. Doing this could cause damage to your gun, which could in return HURT YOU. We are dealing with compressed gas, which is nothing you want to get on you. So dont put things in your TPX's Co2 chamber to try and get a better puncture.

AND if your not oiling your main gun then you need to
-Just drop acouple of drops in where you attach your air supply
Conclusion: I hope i helped a few of you out with the problems that youre having with this great gun. If you are haveing problems with your TPX that I didn't help you with then please call Tippmann's tech dept. They've always been very helpful to me.

I love this gun.
The hand gun makes the head shot all that much better.

all of the problems ive had and heard about are human error
oil your gun and get good paint

this gun was everything i was hoping it would be

its fun playin woods ball with nothing but duel TPX's, alot of extra mags, and some grenades.

tpx is a great buy

i honestly give it a 10
See ya on the field
