Looks like it’s getting pushed back another month or so. My latest conversations with Tippmann puts a shipping date around mid to late January, 2015. Although delayed, this marker is still of course going to get released. We’re still taking pre-orders. #WorthTheWait

Absolutely! The A5 went through a design change awhile ago. This is the newer grip with a selector switch safety. This newer A5 is referred to as the 2011 A5. So, Yes. The A5 2011 Mechanical grip shown below is backwards compatible with the pre 2011 A5 markers. This exact grip shown will also accept the response trigger kits but it will NOT accept the electronic boards. This grip is the mechanical version and does not have the battery compartment built in.
Tippmann has just released some new colors of the popular Crossover XVR marker. They’re going to be a limited edition run so when they’re gone they’re gone. This is a great chance to upgrade to the top of the line Tippmann marker and get one that’ll be unique on the field too. The two new colors are Blue and Bronze. The color will be on the body, barrel and ASA with the grips and other accents colored black. This makes for a nicely balanced 2 tone paintball gun.
New Bronze and Blue Colors of the Tippmann Crossover XVR Paintball Marker
We should have both colors arriving at our TippmannParts warehouse this week or early next so we’re starting to take pre-orders for the new XVRs now.
Two of the old colors are being discontinued. The Red and Titanium are officially sold out from Tippmann. At the time of this post we have only 1 left of each of those colors so if you had your heart set on one of them then now’s the time to pull that trigger.
NopeNopeNope. The Tippmann Response Trigger (RT) Kit for X7‘s is designed for the original X7’s with blowback style operation. The newer X7 Phenom, sometimes just referred to as the Phenom, has a completely different type of valve system that is not compatible with how the RT kits work. If you want to upgrade your mechanical Phenom trigger you can convert it to electronic with an E-Grip kit.
Yes and No. The original Alpha Black paintball guns CAN NOT use the Response Trigger (RT) kits. If you get or have the Alpha Black ELITE then Yes. The Elites are more upgradeable and they will accept the RT kits. They use the same one as the 98’s do. Here it is!
There’s been a little confusion on the size of the Ninja gauges so here’s a quick rundown.
The Ninja Micro gauge is the traditional small sized gauge that has been around for years. The face AND body/rim of the gauge has about the exact same diameter as a quarter. Not larger than a quarter. Almost the exact same size.
The Ninja Paintball MINI gauge on the other hand is the newer super small size. I personally would think Micro is smaller than Mini but as the name Micro has been around for a long time this new gauge is called the Mini. The Ninja Mini gauge face and body/rim is almost exactly the size of a penny. We’ll try to get a video or picture up here soon to better illustrate.
The Crossover is ultra light weighing just over 2 pounds, operates under 300psi for a smoother operation that’s easier on internals and paint, comes with break-beam eyes, clamping feedneck, adjustable double-trigger, gas-thru grip, and a mechanical and electronic safety.
The most talked about feature is the Flex Valve technology already seen in the Tippmann Phenom. The Flex Valve allows the used to switch from electronic operation to mechanical operation at the flip of a switch. Want to save battery life during a long scenarioe? The Crossover has you covered. Battery finally dead? No problem. Want to save paint? Done.
The Crossover boasts many unique features and is sure to make many waves in the paintball community for a good time to come.
