- Tippmann 98 Custom Pro with Response Triggers, Howitzer Bolt, Carbine Stock, Revolution X Loader.
- BT Delta Elite
- Remote Line
- New Barrel, in the middle of a battle your not gonna "dial it in". If you do by the time you have messed with it you probably were hit a few times and called out.
- Fun, Fast, Looks Real
- Rip Clip is hit or miss
- APEX Barrel inaccurate
- Bought this on my Birthday last year and it worked well. Especially on cheap paint. JT brand from Costco. It was $28 a box of 2000 so we all loaded up on it and it worked fantastic. Nel-Splat works well as well. Only Paint that has really caused me grief through it seems to be Draxxus Frostbite and Draxxus Gold. Of course they work fine in my other markers, SP-1, 98, Triumph. Go figure.
- Fun to shoot. worth the $420.00 I purchased it for new.
- The cosmetic parts do not make it any better and only add weight. Of course if you want the MP5SD look then buy it. Me I would save some cash and get the BT-4 ERC if I had to do it over again and I would replace the barrel right away.
- Rip Clip jams
- Apex doesn't perform well on the marker
So this is the second marker I ever got, I got it about 4-5 months ago and right when I got it, I opened the box and was very impressed by the "looks" of it. I heard some good things about it and some bad. I just needed a paintball gun at the time so by big mistake, I got it.
On the following Weekend I tested it out at my local field. It just didn't feel right. It was heavy and bulky as well as the Apex didn't work well. Also from day 1 the paintballs jammed in the Rip Clip so I had to get out of the game. I took it too get repaired but they found nothing wrong with it. They just said that that's how BT's work.
Chops thin shelled paint
Difficult to clean Apex Tip
This marker is a definite step up from the Tippmann 98 Custom that I had been using previously. The ramping works very decently, giving a fairly consistent rate of fire. I had to replace the air tank every 3rd to 4th pod, or about 600 rounds. Unfortunately, this meant that I had to go get air refills before all my pods had been spent.
It looks fairly consistent with the real Mp5SDs that I have seen, or at least to the extent that a paintball marker can. The plastic shroud seems to scratch fairly easily, however, since the shell is black it is fairly hard to see any scratches unless you look. Cleaning the main body of the marker is very easy.
The main problem that I've experienced, is that the marker has a tendency to chop thin shelled paint. When I used Premium brand paint, I did not experience any chopping, even shooting at the fastest the marker will shoot (13 BPS). However, when I switched to Nelsplat and Anarchy brand paint, I chopped every third to fifth ball, despite using different batches and different brands of thin shelled paint. I couldn't clean the Apex barrel either, as my barrel squeegee couldn't reach the inside of the Apex tip.
As long as you are using thick shelled paint, this marker is a beauty. It'll perform well, it's very durable, and it's at a decent price. Using the Apex is also a unique experience, and very fun compared to a traditional barrel. However, in my experience, using thin shelled paint can cause a problem, and it will burn through an air tank

BT Delta Elite w/ 14" Lapco Barrel, NCStar 4x Zoom Scope, BT Rip Clip, Pure Energy 48/3000 tank w/ remote, bipod, folding grip, flashlight, Invert Avatar Goggles, Rap4 Vest
-Comes with E-Grip and e-hopper
-Loud (could be strength or weakness)
-E-Grip isn't really advanced
I bought this gun second-hand from a good friend of mine after he used it for a few years. He didn't take it easy, either. You'd expect his gun to be in pieces, the way he plays. But it still works great. When I got it, it came with a Lapco Barrel, E-Grip, Bipod, most of the things in my list above, except a Rip-Clip (he kept it)
Even before I got my scope, my HPA, my remote, and my rip-clip, this thing was like a dream come true. It's accurate, fast, I've only chopped once (13 bps on gravity hopper). The stock is collapsible, and the whole thing is as customizable as a BT4. With a rip-clip, this thing is a nightmare to whoever's on the other team.
There's not much bad to this gun, especially if you buy it new, except that the E-Grip isn't the most advanced of grips. No selector switch, no burst fire, etc. You get 10 bps ramping or full, 13 bps ramping or full, and semi. So it's no a5 or TM egrip. And changing modes involves disassembling the egrip and playing with switches (so between games only)
And, if you're like me and buy it second-hand, without a rip-clip, you'll want to get that ASAP, or you cant shoot nearly as fast
I only wrote the bad things because I kinda had to. They are very small complaints in what is otherwise a great woodsball/scenario marker, and I would reccomend it to anyone who plays woodsball
A great gun. Only reason it isn't a 10 is the simple EGrip
Barrel, Either get the Flasc barrel kit or a CP or a Lapco
High rate of fire
firing mode changing
mag shake's a little
I got this gun about 6 months ago and I go paint balling once every 2 weeks. This gun has never failed me. Some times u might think it's not working but usually it's just the battery needs to get replace. This gun is very accurate but not the quietest. I think for anybody that want's to get a electric gun, for a low price. This is the way to go. This gun has broken u balls. The fiorst time is because I was using really crappy old paint that had dent's in them and one of the balls broke. Secind time was after some who shot me in the barrel and the paint shell got stuck in it. The next time i shot it broke a ball. But truly it's amazing the anti-chop system.
Get this gun, That's all i have to say. It won't let u down plus it looks so bad ass. The only think i hate is the firing mode changing. I pretty sure they could put a extra dollar in each egrip just to make it so u can change it from the out side. But either then that it's amazing.
Maybe just a tad bulky but if you get used to it its fine.
I just got this gun recently and absolutely love it. It is extremely accurate and has good range to back it up, The Egrip is very useful as well and the Rip Clip compliments it very well. I also enjoy using the Apex for very customizable shots that can alter a firefight. As far as size and weight I could see an issue because alot of people I find use smaller woodsball weapons(98 custom, A5 etc.) but for people who like Military Style weapons and are looking for a very reliable and durable and even for me comfortable gun this is the perfect choice. One thing I really like about this gun also is In my opinion it is very customizable there is room for some attachments and has customizable Egrip along with the customizable Egrip which I think is a must for BT's. One of the last advantages I find is although alot of people dont aim or dont care is very good iron sights I have always like MP5 iron sights and this really does the trick for easy aiming. All in All this is a very good gun and I reccomend it to anyone who has a decent amount of experience and is looking for a good gun to replace a beginner gun.
Get this gun you will be glad you did and you will enjoy using it.
Kinda Front Heavy
May Look a Little Too Real
Hopper Is Kinda Huge
I got this gun 3 months ago when I started, and I havnt even considered buying another gun, the bt delta elite works great, all 4 firing modes work great, and the rip clip has never chopped a ball
The Apex barrel is just amazing, it works perfectly, and is much better than the flatline barrel, although for beginners, the apex barrel might be a little confusing at first, cuz you might push the switch all the way forward thinking its gonna go farthest, but than your gunna wonder why all your balls are hitting the ground, other than that, its a simple marker to use, and its great
I have a 68/3000 Carbon Fibre HPA tank, and it works great with this gun, it is very efficient on air, i get about 1000-1200 shots from a full tank, and ive been using the same batteries for a while now, its very efficient.
I recommend this gun to anyone who wants a marker that not only looks good, but performs just as good, you wont regret it :p
Close quarter combat
Weight(i like weight)
An absoulte beast at close combat,no fear at all!!Playing woodland for a whlie now and my brother has the bt-ironhorse and his gun is good but this is the daddy!!!This marker allows you to move quick and unrestricted making you a nightmare for your opponent ,My frein also has a BTDE and it is great when in opposite teams (it lets you know exactly what your upagainst)
If you like to attack and not sit sniper style this marker is second to none for giving your team that vital edge on your attackers..
