None that i have found
When i orderd the gun I waited 3 days and then it didnt come because UPS will not delivera "firearm" unless there is somebody there to sign for it. So this kind of pissed me off.
When i got the gun i was very pleased one the machineing and accuricy. I also was amazed on how light it was for how big it was. This thing is huge it is over a foot long! I thought it would be smaller. I cant find a holser to fit it. Over all I am very plaesed with it.
Oh there was one other weakness use alot of oil and goes through o-ring like no other or it leaks.
Quick drop for co2 cartridges
Hard to cock.
No bottomline avaliable for it.
When I frist saw this gun online it looked sweet. When it arrived I though it was a little bigger then I was expecting but I wasn't disapointed. It is a nice looking hand gun thats for sure. I have taken mine apart a few times now and have had no trouble getting it back together. The manual could be better. While shooting it has a nice feel. I find it easy to aim and has really good travel on the ball. One thing I do find is it is hard to get my fingers in between the ribs at the back to initialy cock the gun. Plus it has a strong spring which added to that.
Now initially I used co2 cartridges and after nearly going broke replacing air cartridges and o-rings I made my own bottom lines using a dummy cartridge and tippmann asa's. It works great. I have both my delta 68's set up that way now and run them with remotes.
I like the look of this marker. It screams bad ass. But as much as I like it I would recomend something like a core-zx. WHY? Because its cheaper and you can add a bottomline to it way easier. Personally I like the gun, its well made, looks good, and for its few faults is worth consideration. I give it an 8 because it isn't bottomline ready.
Spyder MR2 w/anti-chop bolt, BT Apex barrel, Trinity stock slightly modified, Rap 4 raised site rail for my extras, Metal Feedneck. Delta .68 side arm
Spyder spring kit, extra loader
Accurate, quiet, holds 12 balls, Looks down right serious.
Replacement valve seal rings, Compatible Leg holsters can be difficult to find.
My main gun can sound like my own private war is going on, so when I want to take shots without alerting my position right away, out comes the delta .68. Often times I can take a pot shot and get down and out before an enemy squad can find and flank me. When I am in that dreaded predicament of holding a position down while my teammate's respawn. The Delta is light enough to duel wield and helps buy time with good accuracy and ball capacity.
I never did find an affordable leg holster that fit this gun SNUG to my leg. Having a gunhandle swinging out is annoying. So I thought back to home economics and simply made a leg holster that fit all of my own personal requirements.
I don't go through as many valve seal rings since I lube the seal really well and make sure I fully empty the Co2 cartdrige before I discharge it from the gun. Keeping in mind that Co2 is rough on O-rings etc. I can't complain when a seal or O-ring wears out. Ball clip should be kept as clean as possible.
Good small skirmish sidearm. Make sure to lube where the seal and Co2 meet, discharge the remaining Co2 out before you switch to a new cartdrige.

I have no other paintball pistols, but several paintball guns.
I can't think of one.
It doesn't work. Lousy construction. No support.
This is a paperweight masquerading as a paintball gun. Do not waste your money on this poorly-designed piece of equipment. I have yet to get it to work for more than a few shots.
I have been using paintball guns for a long time, and finally decided to buy this gun as my backup weapon. Wow, was I in for a ride. I don't know how much people were paid to write the good reviews on here, but this is a lackluster piece of equipment that just plain does not work. Calls to the manufacturer's support line are conveniently/routinely "dropped." I have yet to get any assistance in rectifying this situation, so I'm assuming it's never going to be fixed.
This gun is impossible to use. When one puts a CO2 cartridge in it, the first thing it does is completely discharge through the barrel. Since I've only shot the weapon three times (that's THREE total shots in its LIFETIME), I can only conclude that something is wrong with the design. I've taken it apart, replaced all the seals, and re-assembled using the POOR / LOUSY diagram that came with the gun. Even still, same results. When calling support, they claim it's my fault and that I didn't assemble the weapon properly. Tell that to my Tippman 98 Custom, my Tippmann A-5, and my JT TAC-5, all of which I comfortably field-strip and clean without incident...
I cannot stress strongly enough that this device is flawed in design, and that the company JT is absolutely uncaring about this situation. If you buy this gun, you will be stuck with a lemon. Kudos to the people who have a working one, because something must be wrong with yours to get it working in the first place!!

I bought this gun over the internet (paid $150)when it first came out. I really liked the agressive looks and styling of this gun. However, I was somewhat dissapointed when it arrived because it was huge! the internet pictures do not do this thing any justice. If you don't mind lugging around a large sidearm, than this gun may be for you. The day it arrived I bought some CO2 cartridges and loaded up the mag with paint. A little hint- I put a piece of black electrical tape over the end cap of the mag so I never lost it on the field. The gun shot very well and was suprisingly accurate. 12 gram CO2 cartridges last 25- 35 shots.
This gun is worth $150, but no more than that. It has its pros and cons. I sold mine about a year after i owned it. I felt like i could move around a lot better without it. Don't get me wrong, this thing has saved my but plenty of times. If you like having a backup gun and dont mind the extra weight, than buy this gun, it works.

Easy to accidentally trip the 12 Gram Release
When I bought this gun, I was looking for a cheap pistol that wouldn't break after the first game I used it. I saw this selling for $100 Canadian and thought 'what the heck' after reading some reviews on this website.
This was one of the best buys I ever made. It is remarkably accurate. I can't stress that enough. Obvious limitations include the 10 round hopper and 12 Gram C02 air system but you learn to live with them. I'm adding a bottomline ASA to improve rate of fire and consistency.
Even though there is no plastic, it is milled from a solid peice of aluminum, It's not heavy unless you are a nancy boy. Don't aim using the sights on the 10 round hopper (it never sits level), just aim by pointing at your target with your index finger and pulling the trigger with your middle finger. It aims itself. You get about 30 shots per 12 Gram. Key with the Delta is to keep moving. Using this thing, you have to be a paintball ninja to succeed but when you do, OH MAN is it awesome!
The biggest problem I had with this gun is that one time the cotter pin holding in the internals came off somewhere. I dont know where I lost it but I almost spilled the guts of my gun all over a forest in winter without my even knowing. I replaced the missing cotter pin with a small keychain which sure as heck isn't coming off unless I make it. Sometimes you can trip the quick release on the 12 Gram CO2 if you catch it on a railing or windowsill as you pull in from fire. It sucks but its my own dumb fault. Sometimes the paintballs seem to not break on my targets. That could just be bad paint though.. I also dont like how it sits on my leg in the holster (This is less of a problem with the gun and more of a problem with the universal holster..)
-EDIT- Have installed a dummy 12 gram with 18inch steel braided hose, 2 inch drop forward (facing backwards) and a duckbill ASA facing towards the front of the gun with a 13CI HPA. Made the gun slightly heavier but it still fits in the holster and handles basically the same. The first time I played with it I went 6 kills - 0 deaths. Pretty impressive for a pistol! I shot about 60 paintballs and only filled my tank as I left the field because I wanted a full tank. It looks like some kind of Halo videogame weapon now. Still Love this gun!!
-EDIT 2- Took the 68 woodsballing with me yesterday. With the bottomline it is a little awkward if you have to do alot of running around. But then again, sidearm's in general are a little awkward when they sit on your leg. I'm going to try to strap this bad boy to my upper back or stomach. I'll let you know when I figure out what I'm doing and how it goes. On a lighter note, I took the delta 68 as my primary for a game. This thing is so accurate I was keeping 3 people pinned down for 3/4 of the game until I ran out of ammo ( I only had 30 shots on me). The 68 feels almost like a stockclass gun except smaller and semi automatic. Love it.
-EDIT 3- I have decided I dont like using any 68 calibre sidearms as backups. They are all too big and clunky to walk around with. Any secondary gun you bring onto the field should be a non-factor when it is not in use. Unfortunately, due to the size of .68 cal pistols, I find they distract me from moving and covering as intuitively as I would without them. I still love my .68 though. I use it as a primary when I feel like terrorizing people at CQB fields. With my new Kingman Chaser I can dual wield if I want, using the .68 to suppress at distance and the Chaser to kill up close. Sometimes I still use the .68 by itself because it's just that awesome.
If you find one in working order, buy it. They are cheap, Fun to play with if you like exercise and attracts a lot of attention from curious TPX and Tiberius owners.
I know I had a large body of just negatives but I was trying to give a fair review. I couldn't put all of the positives in because there are too many, however, I think I put all of the negatives in because there are only about 4. I give this a 9 cuz I LOVE IT. BUY IT!!!
-EDIT- I have re-visited this post and am flagging my own score. 9 is too high. I want to emphasize that I love this pistol, but, I dont think that any .68 cal paintball pistol should get anything over a 8 based on my feelings expressed in Review Edit 3. Ratings of 9& 10 need to have some meaning that I hope will be met by future generations of .68 cal paintball pistols. Unfortunately, we aren't there yet. On a scale of 8, I am revising my score of the Delta 68 to a 7. Still a really good score if you think about it!

Not alot you can buy factory but if youre creative you can make a ton yourself.
BUT I do think the RAP4 Pistol remote might work. Ill get it and try it
I reccmonded a dot sight and a laser or light.(just for looks really)
Read the Review
Read the review
I got mine used and it was in bleh shape.I did some fixing up on it and now it shoots like a champ.
Lets start down the list
Parts and Finishing
Mine was well used and abused but the parts and finishing were still in good condition. Delrin bolt is a plus.
Its pretty dang cool looking.Feels like a large frame pistol i.e Desert Eagle or S.W.500.Makes for an interesting conversation piece without the magazine. BUT the edges are sharp so watch it when you play with it.
Getting it togeather
I had to take mine apart to fix the piercing valve.Seems the spring was over extended resulting in the Oring not seating correctly and venting all the co2 out.I may try to snip a section off the spring andsee if that helps. But for now it seems like a washer or 2 behind the insert seems to work well.
I can say its definatly diffrent shooting a pistol. The stock sights are horrible.They arent tall enough to really be used effectivly.But My issue is that its not rear heavy enough. Due to this I will be building it into like a Micro SMG.
Its like any gun.Take of her and she takes care of you.Oil it up and take care of it.
Its a pistol.Theres not alot the not so creative person can do(i.e not alot of bolt on mods) But its so close to a Spyder that I think that many of the spider parts would work,I think itd make a BAFM E framed SMG Ill be adding to this as I modify my own.
Whats the DIiffrence between the 32* D.68 and the PB?
None that I have found.Ive taken them both apart and they are the same inside and out.
The valve always leaks
Usually its user error.I made the mistake of not cocking it before airing it up and venting and the oring falling out mistake i made too. Its USER ERROR!! Read the instruction manual first then play with it.Take it apart and oil it first.
Its a great pistol for a person who wants one.I like mine alot and its now my primary. Its no perfect like the TPX but its dang close.
-Big for aftermarket holsters.
-Co2 change method(s)
Okay, I have used a pistol or two in the past. So I knew what to expect. Psychoballistics/32 Degrees have again reintroduced a new line of pistol(s) that beg to be used aggressively. Upon testing my new pistol I have found that you constantly need to oil the Oring located where the 12gram cartridge goes. Because if you're on the field, and you have used roughly about 20+ or so shots. And your pistol burps, you will have 2 options to choose from at this point. One, change the co2 cartridge quickly to avoid excessive co2 leakage and frosting of the co2 chamber as well as your fingers (you will have to be extremely fast to pull this off). Or option two, waste all of your shots that you have left in your cartridge (cock and shoot repeatedly). The first option increases the chances of having your Oring to freeze, whereas option 2 does not. However, option 2 on the field is not likely to be done because you can't pull it off on the field if you're on constant watch for enemies and or under substantial fire. So it's kind of your choice at that point. Loading the pistol is rather easy with a good supply of 10 round tubes on hand. However, I would strongly recommend you to do some sort of mod to the magazine cap so you can take it on and off with ease. It's pretty self explanatory on how to do it, but I'll briefly explain it. Simply tap a small hole at the end of the magazine cap. Use a ring of some sort found on key chains, and find some place on the pistol to put that chain on. And there you have it! Okay onto the markers functionality. The velocity adjuster on the pistol needs some time to get used to. And it can be a pain without a chronograph. I've heard that the stock spring inside the pistol is weak, but mine seems to be shooting really well stock. But that maybe just me. In terms of firing and actual function, it's simple compared to a spyder with the internals & etc. Quick and easy disassembly , good rate of fire, good efficiency, easy loading, simple to use, good weight, kinda big, well constructed and most of all good looking. That pretty much sums things up I guess. But I want to get onto the upgrades for the last chunk. There aren't many upgrades for this type of marker, nor do you need any. Basically the only things as of now that you can probably change, would be the internals; hammer, bolt, valve, valve stem/cup seal(s), maybe the velocity adjuster. There are also detents, magazines, and quite possibly adding some picatinny railing systems on the pistol somehow to mount lasers and or other accessories.
Now to sum things up. I am not here to persuade anyone to purchase this pistol. I am merely mirroring my experience(s) with it. Meaning, I really enjoyed using this pistol. And it was worth every penny. If you do however get this pistol for who knows what reason, be sure to get your hands on a lot of 10 round tubes with the flip top caps. Don't bother getting those expensive "Stock-Class Harnesses" made by those paintball companies, those are a lot of money and you can get cheaper by simply getting a Shotgun/Shotshell Belt Holder and or Ammo Cartridge Holder Belt(s) for atleast $10. And they hold like 20-25 tubes/shells. Hopefully I have answered your questions and or provided some insight for you guys. If you have any questions/comments. Please don't hesitate to comment on here or private message me.
Easy to maintain
Great air efficiency
Not that I have found during times of use
After much criticism I have heard about paintball pistols I have decided to give the delta 68 a well deserved chance. Upon receiving the gun by mail I already had high expectations on its potential, out of the box the pistol worked like a charm, no chopped balls, no double feeding and changing CO2 cartridges is a breeze and can be executed correctly in a matter of seconds by estimating the 45 degree angle mentioned in the instructions on the angle the cartridge meets the puncture pin. But once it came to clock its velocity it was quite a disappointment for me to find it only firing at a max of 220 FPS on the stock spring, so I went to my local paintball shop and the mechanic was nice enough to give me a stronger main spring for it for free, unknown of the brand of spring but the velocity sky rocketed to an astounding 295 FPS!!! while still maintaining at least 25-30 shots per cartridge. From there forward battle after battle the Delta 68 proved superior in terms of backup when your primary fails and as a last stand when it's you against insurmountable odds, the Delta 68 delivers a punishing blow to the enemy as well as a message to them that you will not go down so easily and not without a heavy fight and will stand by your side at the ready to see things through to the bitter end.
In my closing I say this, if you are looking for a backup weapon and have a pistol in mind, may the Delta 68 be the first on your list, you will not be disappointed and will prove every penny's worth on the battlefield. I give this product a 9 because it could still use some minor modifications before it has my vote of a 10 but nonetheless it's a great pistol and it serves its purpose as a sidearm.
