US Army Project Salvo Paintball Gun
Posted by paintballtech on June 9, 2009
www.Tippmannparts.com is excited to announce the release of the Project Salvo paintball gun by US Army Paintball. This exciting new marker is packed full of new features including: 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, sight, scope, flashlight, or a variety of other mods.
Another great feature of this marker is its extensive upgradeability. The Project Salvo marker can easily accept the eGrip upgrade as well as several other performance upgrades from the Tippmann 98 Custom Platinum Series such as 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.
