Review: Well, despite some bad reviews I got my tpx a few days ago and when I first took it out of the box it was amazing. The case was great, it looked kickass, and it had a rail on the bottom.

Later, when I got it out for testing (since it is winter) i used winter formula balls, blizzards. Now I'm not sure if Tippmann upgraded the parts or it was the thick winter shells but no balls broke and it was awesome.

I really like the Co2 puncture because it isn't twist punctured, the first trigger pull punctures the cartridge. In some pistols you have to twist the cap really hard to puncture it.

I like the holster, although it could carry more mags. I rigged it onto my NXE pod belt and now its like a waist holster.

I think tippmann upgraded all the internals also, because there aren't any of the problems any other users complained about.

One major problem (and I didn't see this the first time) is that when you take the gun apart the first thing that happens is the spring just pushes all the internals out every which way and things could break. One way, and i ADVISE YOU DO THIS EVERY TIME YOU OPEN YOUR TPX is that you have to hold the shroud down, and then take out pieces very gently. Putting everything back in is a challenge as well, you have to keep the shroud and the metal housing in, and shove the bolt in from the back because of all of the pressure from the spring.

I love the accuracy on this thing. from 30 ft away I shot a round through a paper towel roll without it touching the sides. It will destroy anything you point it at and pull the trigger. The accuracy almost seems better than the 98.
Conclusion: I'd have to say besides the internals busting which CAN BE PREVENTED, this is an absolute great marker. The accuracy is great, the look is great, and the grip is great. Once again, the mastery of Tippmann creates a great marker.
