Top 10 Reasons to buy a Tribal
For those of you who skim this forum and dont find it a buzz, fear not... Tribals are great markers...

If this is your only forum you will not of noticed the Tribal Group is way more talkative at PBN, but oh well.

If just cruising, and thinking of getting a tribal here are some reasons thought up by me and other Tribal owners (credit given where deserved)

--- any tribal owners who look to give more reasons may:)

1. Price

and me

Davkad's List
1. looks
2. weight
3. trigger feel/pull (very nice, not sloppy like on most other electros)
4. quality materials used, mostly lightweight metals, nothing cheap
5. amazing support (fearfactory and ASP!) - tribal owners are some of the closest and coolest of any marker
6. great stock bolt and barrel - works well out of the "box"
7. speed
8. all the great modes you need (3, 6, full, semi, and on some turbo), none of the crap features you dont.
9. easy maintenance
10. rarity/unique

when i go to the field with my friend and his fluster, people stare at it and always want to shoot it. it's beautiful, and it shoots just as good as it looks (stock too!) after a night with a timmy, i really really appreciate the tribal. it performs better, it has a much better trigger, has simple features so less complication, and has a stock delrin bolt. god i love tribals.

you guys have gotten away from the 10 reasons to buy a tribal

pyro hedgy 08-19-2002 04:33 PM

I'm sorry

1. Best customer support, Have Blue and me 262 rule!
2. They preform as good as a $1000 gun
3. Awsome milling
4. Only an inch thick
5. Light trigger pull
6. Speed
7. Very few, people will ask what is that and I say "The last thing you'll see before your gogged."
8. Reliable, I though about getting a back up for mag because it always blew it's hoses. That problem is now non-existant.
9. The fact everyone wants one.
10. Because I said so.

Paint Bulley 08-19-2002 05:30 PM

starboarder2001 08-19-2002 06:14 PM

hmm....been looking for a place that sells them but no luck. THey are hard to find.

pyro hedgy 08-19-2002 06:16 PM

Pbnation classified threads still have a few, check there.

pollacjw 08-23-2002 06:33 AM

No store sells them- you can only find them used. Places to buy tribals are Ebay, F/S F/T fourms and the pb.nation tribal F/S thread in the tribal fourm.

ASP and fear factory have them from time to time.

Cost varies.

$100 or less it needs repair
$100 and above its stock
Above $200 it will have some mods.
Above $300 it should have alot of mods.

Ten reasons-

Small er than an impulse (width)

Have a great center of gravity ( when you hold it you can feel what i am talking about)

Shoot as fast as a non force feed hopper can feed (13 pbs).

Cost is low for its preformance.

Lots of mods are available.

Tribal owners are a close bunch (for the most part).

ten is too many- i dont have that many reasons for my IR3

Am I getting ripped?
Buying a pewter to chrome "fish-bone milled" Tribal twister with double trigger/Palmer stabilizer(chrome) with guage and a bob long series barrel for 355+shipping. think I got ripped off?

Paint Bulley 09-26-2002 06:48 PM

depends on the condition of the Stab.

if the stab works perfect, you made out alright, also depending on how it all works and condition

it all depends on condition

Ocelot213 11-11-2002 08:27 AM
