Barrel. Get a new barrel. The 8" it comes with is crap, period.
Durable, intimidating, tough, etc.
Cost, air pig, crappy stock barrel.
I had a RAP 4. Got rid of it, bought this, and was simply amazed. I'd read reviews, but had no idea it was going to be this good. So good, I bought a second for my spare.
Tough design. The body is synthetic. No rust, nothing. Almost indestructable. I weigh about 240 pounds. Have fallen on it twice so far, no damage. Not a dent...well, dents in me, none in the weapon.
The performance. It's simply awesome. No feed jams, no breaking balls in the chamber, nothing. It fires fast, it's reliable, it doesn't stop. Only problem is the lod mechanism requires air to feed the weapon. You run low on air, you have no feed system. Buy a big tank.
Big negative is the stock barrel. 8", the ports are int he forestock. So, you blow a round int he barrel, spend the next 10 minutes cleaning your forestock. Pain in the butt.
This is, in my opinion, the best mechanical marker out there. Tough, reliable, intimidating and customizable.

I bought this marker a while ago but i never used it bonestock, its actualy my first scenario type gun. I upgraded it from the start with a foregrip, flatline barrel, buttstock and a remote. I highly recomend all of those upgrades except the foregrip and stock because not everyone likes to use those.
The x-7 performs great, the basic model has a nice fealing while shooting, however there is alot of kick. The X7 is extremely accurate with the flatline wich flatens your trajectory giving you more distance and such.. The cyclone feed works great and has a consistant feed rate that works well on the x7.
The marker itself is big/boxy so it can be heavy with a full hopper, and if u dont use a romote i suggust a light or small sized tank.
Overal this is an awsomely great marker from tippmann/spec-ops, and is also uber fun to use :d

Tippmann X7- JCS Red Hot Power Tube- Shocktech firefly bolt -TechT Lightening Rod- Cyclone Vortex Mod-X7 E-Grip- Hammerhead 14" Bangstixx
The aforementioned upgrades Plus an HPA and remote coil
With the current upgrades after july 2007
A stock X7 was anemic at best during a 12 hour woodsball scenario.
After using a stock X7 with semi auto trigger for a couple months, I got tired of getting waxed on a 1 on three situations. Durable...yes and all that other great stuff about the X7 but slow on putting paint downrange if you know what I mean. So I opted for some X7 upgrades, and all I can say is WOW!!! What a tremendous difference a few ups that can turn a relative anemic milsim marker into Monster Baller of epic purportions. Polished the insides just to clean off the factory goop, replaced the stock power tube with a JCS red hot power tube & shocktech firefly bolt. Replaced stock Cyclone internals with TechT lightening rod & Votex mod. Install an E-grip & Hammerhead barrel. Can you see where I'm going with this, Red hot power tube helps with air output and efficency, Cyclone internals speed ups from 13bps to 25bps. The e-grip gives choices of firing modes when you need them and the hammerhead improves accuracy . Its like having an etec ego 7 without the price tag, its that good!!!
I can't say which upgrade is better than the other, but rather all of them working together gives you a much more stable and powerful platform to hold your own on the field of paintball scenario. Snipe goggs at 200ft or push back hordes at 25yds with these ups you can never go wrong.

Most of the marker is made strong
Magazine is made of plastic
I've had my X7 for almost 10 months as of Labor Day 2007. This marker shoots cheap paint surprisingly good (no ball breakage only an occasional skip); better paint delivers more accuracy without skips. Cronos consistantly when using HPA. The APEX Barrel definately provides more distant, accurate and trick shots. After almost 10 months of use and getting a feel for the basic marker, I chose to add a Response Trigger as an additional upgrade (this will aid in providing suppressive fire). My consideration for choosing the RT over the E-grip was cost, and I prefer pneumanic/mechanical over electronic.
I rate this marker a 9 out of a 10; this marker has enormous potential for change. It certainly can compete well with other markers in its class and category.
Tippmann 98 custom
The Tippmann X7 is a lot better
Tippmann x7(just basic)
Longer barrel or get Flatline Barrel
High Rate Of Fire
Not any so far. I just didn't enjoy the price it was
I am a woodsball player and feel that this marker is perfect for that purpose. Lots of mods. The X7 features a magnesium receiver, which offers the durability of aluminum, but is 20 percent lighter. It also incorporates an enhanced Cyclone Feed System that can feed more than 20 balls-per-second and a new low profile, offset hopper, which provides a clear sightline down the top of the marker. Plus, the X7 is the first marker to feature an air-through stock compatible system, which makes it easy to move the gas line to the back of the marker for better maneuverability and a more realistic appearance. GREAT MARKER.
Just a Great marker it is the best so far of the Tippmanns. This gun is accurate, fast and reliable. Doesn't get any better than this if you ask me!

Looks, performince, duriblelity, extreamly light weight and of corse low off set hopper.
I have no complates accept that its a little thick but dont worry about that.
when i first got the X7 it wouldnt even fire but i sent it to tippmann and they sent me a brand new one. the new one worked flawlessly right out of the box. The lightness of the gun is a big advantage on the field same with the offset hopper. when i went to the local field everyone was commenting on how cool my gun was and how well it shot i am very impressed with my x7 I reccomend it to anyone who plays woodsball!!!
if ur looking for a light milsim marker with great prefomence get the X7
thanks again to tippmann for the execelent customer service.

20 ounce pure energy tank
30mm red dot scope
Barrel if you want
Accuracy, Feel, Look, Operation
the stock sights aren't the best
Oh my goodness, i got this X7a few weeks ago. At first you have to put about 2 hoppers through it to make the springs soften up, its smooth sailing after that. I have used many guns throuought the time i played the sport of paintball, i must say that very few guns (when they are stock) match up to the stock X7, The accuracy of the X7 out of the box is very very good compared to other guns. It barely breaks balls, i only broke balls when the springs were still hard because they were new but thats about it, never broke a ball since. It has a very nice feel to it, also has an offset hopper so you can put a scope on it. The trigger pull is perfect for me, very realistic, i can get about 6-8 shots per second out of it, but that might just be me. The gun is very realistic, it is very appealing, you just want to keep looking at it. The new redisigned cyclone feed is flawless. The removable clip is also very handy, you can put tools like allen keys in, and no they dont shake around inside because they have specially made grooves to sit in. This gun is actually very balanced, i have a 20oz tank and when i fill the hopper it is very balanced. The only thing i dont like about this gun are the sights, the stock sights suck but thats why i bought a red dot scope, this isint a problem i barely use the sights, this gun feels so good in your hands that i just aim where my head is looking and hit every time.
I recommend this gun to ANYONE (who plays woodsball), weather you just started to paintball or are a pro or you play scenario its a great all around gun. i can't wait to see what it does if i do upgrade it!
This Was an Excelent Hopper, Shot amazing the first day. I had some choping problems and it was'nt shooting stirght, but after about 20min of play it was working great. About a week later i got the flatline barrel and it mad this gun seem so amazing like nothing else could top it. I would reccomend this gun to newbis and to vets.
