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.
The Tippmann US Army Project Salvo is newer, so it should be commonly available, both new and used. Check out the Places to Buy links below for places to purchase it new.
Project salvo with front grip, m16 carry handle and sight, sling, and 18 inch m16 barrel
Tippman internals, good looking gun, nice hefty weight.
Stock wiggles a bit
First of all i know alot about paintball guns. I have been around them a very long time. I also work at a paintball place called skrimish so i am around them all day. The guns tha we use there are tippman 98 customs and those things last. The staff and the players beat those guns and they keep on going. That is on of the things that i like about the salvo. Most of the interals arte stright form the tippman 98 do right of the bat you now it is going to be reaiable. The gun itself is awsome looking coming stock with picatany rails and 6 way stock that you can collisape. the gun has a nice weight is very soild. The only times that the gun gets flimsey is when the barrel is out the shorud wobbles and the stock moves because it has on screw to hold. The gun shoots good and the sights actually work at about 50 feet.It is also easy to upgrade because it takes 98 barrels and also things like the reaponse trigger and e trigger. And the best thing is the price the gun sales for 150 for just the gun. awsome buy
I would def recommend this gun to anywon who wants a sick looking gun
This is a very nice gun it hasnt chopped a ball for me yet. (I only shot about 400 though) It is accurate even using super cheap paintballs. I like the little bit of weight cause it feels more durable. It can shoot a ball hard and fast if you want.
I would reccomend this gun to anyone who is interested in it. Because of the price and all the pros.
Very long ( with the butt open). Original barrel is not so good
For my first marker, I would say that its one of the best tippmann around. Its very easy to costum afterward. The gun is perfectly design, its very easy to open and clean. It's the perfect gun for the beginner
Good points: Lots of option (custom). Very cheap but still very good. Perfect marker for beginner. The kit comes with everything you need : Tools, barrel plug, oil, helen keys, manual, barrel cleaner, tool box desguise as a magasine.
Bad points: The original barrel is not that precise, I would recommend a better one. The gun is very long. You can't look down the sight with a mask.
I would recommend this product to anyone who wants to start paintballing!
Ive been using this marker for about 6 months and what i found out soon after purchasing and using it that it was quite heavy. i then realized that i would have rather spent my money on an electronic marker (ion...) but over all its a good woods ball marker.
Its a good gun for beginners but i would spend my money on an electronic marker if i were you
