Strengths: It looks and performs like a real military rifle.

Review: I purchase the X7 with the intent of making a paintball gun that would appear as real as possible. I play woods ball and I like a realist weapon. The X7 for the most part fits the bill as far as easy to customize., A BT M16 fore grip with an Apex barrel makes the front of the gun almost perfect. If your not shooting an Apex your headed for the dead zone, best idea in paintball in years. Rap 4 carry handle is the best I've found, it looks and functions just like military hardware, and it's real metal. Red dot sight is a nice option which works pretty well with some practice. Add a Rap 4 stock with a 7 oz bottle in the stock and the gun looks as real as it gets. I am still looking at using a Tippmann Air thru stock, the Rap 4 stock has some good points but also has some less than desirable qualities.

OK to the gun itself, it works flawless, in all setting from semi to full auto it shoots perfect. Its an air hog but what Tippmann isn't so if you already shoot a Tippmann your use to that. Hopper can keep up with the gun no problems there. Pretty accurate, not a 22 Win Mag but for a paintball gun better than most. I shot Marblizer paint in this gun about two cases so far not one break. And just when you thought this was a perfect gun, Tippmann had to throw in some plastic. The clip which serves no function is plastic which serves only to cheapen the looks of the gun. The trigger and grip section of the gun are also plastic. The problem here is the battery door which is in the grip will not stay locked. It has a clip that locks it shut however when you squeeze the grip hard the door will pop open. Come on Tippmann you surely seen that when you made it. Battery compartment with a snap closed door is a great idea if it works. Tippmann also generally uses a plastic power tube inside the gun, haven't checked the X7 but if its plastic for sure you want to replace it with aluminum asap. The plastic will crack at the worst possible time. The front of the gun has a threaded insert in it where the barrel screws into the gun. Great idea however the one on my gun will move about 1/16 of an inch up and down which as you can imagine affects the accuracy. I replaced the front two push pins with bolts and nuts which for the most part fixed the problem.
Conclusion: For the life of me I can't figure out how Remington or Winchester can build a gun which is made of the best metals, machined to the closest tolerances, fitted and polished with great detail for $300. Paintball gun makers ask us $400 for plastic, problems, and poor engineering??? Now having said that and give what on the market If you like a realist military type paintball gun you can't go wrong with an X7, speedballers you won't like it, it's big, and heavy. Other than a few plastic parts it's an outstanding gun.

Weaknesses: Slightly Expensive, Not Completly Perfect
Review: The tippmann x7 is a strong durable gun that is fully customizable. If customized properly with a use of good paintballs and a 14 inch barrel and an upgrade of an egrip, this beautiful gun will be a force to be reckoned with in woodsball. The magnesium body is a great look and strong for that matter, although this body is slightly heavy u will get used to it. The overall feel on the gun is wonderful with a smooth trigger pull. use good paintballs and not cheap ones with a 14 inch barrel if u would like this gun to be accurate. It eats up a lot of c02 but if u were to try compressed air it might correct this problem. tippmann has a great past and this gun proves it. Its a little expensive but u get what u pay for.
Conclusion: I would recommend this gun to any1 who wants to dominate in woodsball, basic its alright but if u upgrade it w. a $40 dollar 14 inch barrel. it will almost be unstoppable if u unlock its full potential and add an egrip. excellent gun and I am enjoying upgrading it even more.
