Review: The BT Delta first off is a Bt-4 Combat core with added furniture. So basically we have a Tippmann 98/ A5 clone with an integrated collapsible stock, barrel shroud, fake magazine, and peep sights.

This is not to say that the BT Delta is a bad gun, on the contrary it's in fact a fantastic gun. It's a well designed marker. The added furniture gives it the look of an MP5K sub machine gun, which is great for scenario play. The collapsible stock allows you to tuck the marker in close for clear out structures.

Maintenance / upgradablity:
Being that it's a BT \ Tippmann Clone, break down and cleaning are simple. the clam shell design allows you to open up the marker and clean/oil/replace any internals necessary. The Trigger frame is one piece and easily replaced should you want to install an e grip.

The Barrel should be replaced, plain and simple. The Stock barrel is short, loud, and inaccurate. Consider a J&J Ceramic or a SP (GoG) Tactical barrel. Or if you want to use an Apex, look into a Lapco Big Shot.

The Rip Clip Hopper setup is a must if you decide to upgrade the trigger frame, as well.

This marker is heavy, and after hours of playing you will wish you had a sling to hook it to, especially if you forego the use of a remote line. I can imagine anyone wanting to hold this thing with an air tank hooked on to it. Without the use of a remote line, you render the stock unuseable.

One other truth to this gun is that if your going to do most of these upgrade you can simply buy the BT Delta Elite, and get them all for less that you would spend individually. Particularly, the Apex, E-Grip, and Rip Clip.
Conclusion: The Delta is a great gun for a scenario/woodsballer. It's a simple setup with an advanced feel for a beginner / intermediate player. But If you are a more experienced player and want all the upgrades, I would suggest the Delta Elite instead. You'll get all the upgrades for less price in the end.
