We are excited to release the new U.S. Army Paintball Marker - Project Salvo‚¶an exciting new marker from U.S. Army Paintball featuring a six position collapsible and foldable stock, an AR-15 style shroud with four built-in Picatinny rails and a new AR-15 style magazine that doubles as a helpful toolkit. The marker also incorporates a flat-top Picatinny rail built into the receiver, which makes it simple for players to quickly add a handle, site, scope or a variety of other modifications.
As an added benefit, the Project Salvo marker can be easily enhanced with an eGrip as well as several other performance upgrades from the Tippmann 98 Custom Platinum Series, including: the Cyclone Feed System, Response Trigger and Flatline barrel.
Much like Alpha Black, the name selected for this new marker is rooted in U.S. Military history. Project Salvo was a series of tests conducted by the U.S. Army‚s Operations Research Office (ORO) from the mid to late 1950s. The research obtained through Project Salvo helped lead to the development of the AR-15, which would go on to become the M-16 ‚ widely considered among the most respected and proven rifles ever utilized by the United States armed forces.

Its a Tippmann, GREAT Customer service
Nothin' yet but I've only tested it
A little background. I play woodsball in Idaho. I've been looking at opening a field in my town since there are none and i already have the ground for a woods field. I got this gun as a test for if i want to get them for rentals.
I received the marker in the mail today. First i put the stock on and it looks sweet! Mine is very solid feeling. You can grab it by the end of the stock and shake it all you want. NO WIGGLES! NONE!
Time for a shooting. Since it is 98 threads, I slapped my 12" Smart parts tear drop barrel (Lookin' for a short consistent barrel, it is the one!), screwed my HPA tank and a hopper with 50rds. I don't have a chrono so I'm not sure what is was shooting at. It shot damn good. I could consistently hit a post at about 60 ft. It is hard to sight down the sights though with the stock. I folded the stock and sighted down the sights. It was fairly accurate with the sights.
Front shroud- very strong considering it is help with one screw. The 4 picatinny rails are going to be very handy! It comes with a front sling mount. Soon it will be getting a folding front grip.
Folding stock- I give tippmann an A+ for it. It is strong and simple.
Clip tool kit- great design. The tools fit very tight, no rattling! Always know where your wrenches are and keep them from getting lost or taking up your pockets.
IT IS A TIPPMANN- great customer service! E-grip, RT and Cyclone feed compatible!
I have not stripped it yet but it is supposed to be very close the 98 which is very simple, for me of course i've had mine since 2004.
I recommend it! It met all my expectations. I would get it for rentals no doubt. Maybe mix in some alpha blacks since I would expect the same quality out of them. I give it an 8 which is high for me. A 10 would be a gun i would never put down.
Salvo with 14in pathogen 2 barrell CO2w remote line
Riser if using anything other than stock barrell, see below, front grip, and remote line
Shoots very well out of the box
Front shroud is loose when using aftermarket barrels
First out of the box this looks wicked(reason for buying along with tippmann name). Feels good in my hands yet pretty heavy. I initially used a 20oz tank on the gun when first testing and was VERY heavy and cumbersome. Then put my remote on it and its much better now but still a tad heavy, i'm average size and strength. The stock barrell is what you would expect, just ok. I was using very poor paint(sorry can't remeber brand) and at 40 ft was making about a 18 pattern. I switched a better brand that had been shooting straighter in my 98's(again don't remember brand) and pattern went down to about 13 in at 40ft. I got salvo with a 14 in pathogen 2 barell and installed it next, 3 extra inches sticking out of the front shroud makes this gun go from looking killer to absolutely SICK, awesome mil-sim look now. Also the pattern was better than stock with crappy balls about 16in to 10 in with better balls at 50ft this time, sig better. However the stock barrell has a very big OD and is made to fit snug inside the shroud and it literally moves around freely with the 14 in on it. That is not exceptable for me. I have ordered a 1 in riser to screw onto both the shroud picatinny rail and the rail on the body of the gun to stabilize it a bit. I think thatll work well. Also ordered a front grip because for me the natural place for my front hand was on the magazine and i keep depressing the magazine release buttons(however it fits too tight to actually fall out) and i dont really like that. Plus I'm a woodsball/milsim guy so the loo k of a grip is badazz!
Speedball, no way too heavy. Woodsball great gun, and it has many different possible looks with upgrades and perforance upgrades as well though for the average player no upgrades really are needed right away. Its Tippmann tough and i feel i could abuse it badly and still expect it to perform flawlessly. best gun ive owned so far!!! A+++

possibly a longer barrell
Looks great, reliable
Heavy and long.
Have had this marker for an entire year now and have become very attached to it. its has an excellent and reliable 98 system inside it covered in a awsome looking body kit. I have has few tippmanns in the past and have found them too be quite heavy, so it didnt suprise me when i took it out of the box. it is also very long which may be a problem for smaller players as they will have to have the stock on the 1st stage which could effect aiming. Since i am a bigger player these problems do not effect me in any way, which gives me time to admire the beauty of this marker. once i got my 98 cyclone feed system on it this instantly became the greatest marker i have ever owned and will continue to use it until it dies from a 100 year old age.
Absolutely recomend this marker to any new players or any experienced players who want a reliable and good looking marker to show of to their mates simply because it is pure awsome.

Great marker out of the box
Stock will wear out over time.
HEY, Just got a sierra one(Canadian version of the project salvo) bought 3 weeks ago LOVE IT. Im gona break the review down to three parts.
well this gun straight out of the box rocks for some one wanting a cheap milsim marker that looks great. its range with the stock barrel isnt the best but that can be a easy fix with new barrel. its realy easy on paint, iv only broke 2 balls outa a case and thats becasue the paints was like 6 months old and i was trying to out shoot the gun to see how fast it would shoot before it broke a ball. I'll tell you now ull have a hard time out shooting this thing even with a gravity(with the mechanical trigger of coarse). The gun feels very solid the mag is nice it suits the rest of the gun qwite well. You can just imagine all the things you can put on this thing with all those RAILS! it a very nice marker for the price.
this thing is fairly accurate with the stock 11" barrel at anywere up to about 50 ft but mind you it still is a stock barrel and its fairly loud.
I put a 16" linear on it and its a lil more accurate but the ball holds its flight much longer.
( i know scopes are kinda usles in paintball but i put one on and sighid it in at 65ft and it hits a 3X3 inch spot 4 outa 5 times pretty good if u ask me)
ok the only things a can see going wrong with this thing or that i have already notcied are the stock is going to wear out faster then ur normal car stock because to shorten it up u gota pull it down the push it over and theres a spring that holds it so that will wear, another thing is with mine idk about others but the stock has a little side to side play were it goes into the gun. The mags were not made to hold up every time you open them the very thin plastic folds that act as a hing wear out rapidly so idk how long the mags would last.
I would recomend this marker to anyone starting out in bush ball or to even the most experienced player for the price tag you cant complain. Its got the reliability of a 98 custom so you know its a trooper. ITs also about the same price and look how much extra your getting
IM GIVING IT A 9/10 it very well deservs it!
9 out of 10

(Optional): E-grip and response trigger
Durable (It's tippmann)
Nice and easy feed neck
Comes with piccatiny rails
Can't look down sights with stock on
Alright, I was downright pissed with the crappy quality of the Electra and I got a new gun.
I played with the Salvo today and it was amazing for it's price. I had to take the because your mask probably restricts your face and you'll have to press it against your stock really hard to look down the sights. If you wan to use the iron sights either take off the stock or get riser mounts. Accuracy is good enough, you might want to get a 14 inch barrel since it comes with the stock 11 inch one. The feed neck is easy to take off and put on. You can take it off and put a squeegee through one side and out the other. The picatinny rails come with the gun obviously so it allows a lot of customization. The trigger feels cool, I don't exactly know what it's made of but it fees great in your hands.
Last thing is the gun is a little heavy when you first get it. Get over it, you'll get used to it in 10 minutes.
DIDN'T run into any problems today.
First reviews are usually a little biased since I just bought it, (also kicked ass today and killed double digits)
Will update later, but this is a great gun!
It's cheap and it's boss.
Looks great and works well for it's price.
Customization opportunity is awesome.

Out of the box this thing worked perfect
Tippmann should have designed this unit to except e-grip
Solid body, not alot of plastic. Not Unit To Field Strip. But Great Unit for anyone looking for rifle marker. Weight is realistic and folding stock is nice feature. Out of box the unit shot like a champ but remote line helped to keep weight down. Works much better with 98 custom response trigger which was easy to install
