TPX Barrels and Lapco PosiFeed Paddles

LAPCO has always had quality in mind when producing their products. Their barrels are no exception to this. All LAPCO barrels are precision crafted until the bore size and barrel wall thinness are concentric and consistent. This eliminates the visible wavy lines that plague lower quality barrels. Then, the Big Shot is honed in a three step process that creates a mirror finish inside the barrel. The honing is then followed up by a hard anodization process to keep your barrel looking like new. The new TPX Big Shot Barrels are available in .687 and .690 bores, allowing for versatility in barrel-to-paint matching.

Made in the U.S.A. and machined from aircraft grade aluminum, then black anodized and laser etched with LAPCO’s signature Scorpion logo and utilizing LAPCO’s Tru-Bore technology, the BIG SHOT ASSAULT barrel system has the same quality and performance you expect from LAPCO Big Shot barrels, but now with the addition of a threaded tip it is easier than ever to change the look of your barrel set-up. The Assault barrel comes standard with an M-16 style Bird Cage thread on flash suppressor. Lapco also offers several other thread on tips such as the APEX adapter, the Phantom flash Suppressor, Sop-Mod style fake suppressor & Barret M-82 tip. This allows the player the freedom to create different mil-sim looks by adding different tips and accessories without having to replace or remove barrels. The TPX Big Shot Assault Barrels are available in .687 and .690 bores, allowing for versatility in barrel-to-paint matching.

J & J Ceramic Barrels are made from 6061 T6 grade aluminum and are CNC machined to the highest quality standards in the industry. What makes these barrels unique, however, is the how they are coated on the inside. In the inner diameter of the barrel, J& J impregnates the surface with a ceramic and Teflon mixture. This helps to reduce the friction rate to a minimum, while allowing the barrel to be almost self cleaning

Site-Mfg, or Stiffi to most people, is the leader in carbon fiber paintball technology. With the introduction of their MF Barrel, they have provided the most accurate mid-priced barrel available. With its one piece design, stepped bore, mirror internal finish, and completely metal free design, the Stiffi MF Barrel is truly an innovation in paintball barrel technology.

Made in the U.S.A., LAPCO’s new PosiFeed Soft Paddles are made from a space-age, oil resistant, flexible polymer that can withstand freezing temperatures. LAPCO’s PosiFeed technology eliminates lockup on the 3 ball side of the second layer, guiding your ammo into the Cyclone more efficiently. Also, LAPCO’s Posi-Drive technology means both top and bottom paddles interlock and wont slip during use. LAPCO has produced the paddles in 3 different grades of firmness: soft, medium and hard – in order to combat different altitude, humidity and temperature levels which can have adverse effects on typical paddles currently found in the marketplace.

NEW TPX PISTOL
CO2 UPGRADE KIT
STRAIGHT FROM TIPPMANN:

New TPX Pistol CO2 Upgrade Kit
Over the past few months, feedback regarding our new TPX Pistol has been overwhelmingly positive. The new product has generated a tremendous amount of interest and excitement among paintball players around the globe. However, an issue regarding the pistol has surfaced.

It appears the dimensions for CO2 cartridges vary far beyond our initial tests, and have resulted in some cartridges not puncturing. Although we tested numerous brands, we have discovered that certain types of cartridges may not puncture on the first pull. If you’ve noticed this issue, please contact us at 1-800-533-4831 or visit www.tippmann.com, click on the CO2 Upgrade Kit link and simply complete the appropriate TPX form with your serial number. We’ll send you a free CO2 Upgrade Kit including a new cap with an adjustable set screw that adjusts for various CO2 cartridge sizes, as well as a new, easy-to-install pin assembly.

If you have experienced any other issues, whether it is velocity, efficiency, or paint breakage related, we encourage you to visit our new TPX Tech Support program on the Tippmann web site to learn more about troubleshooting, installation and maintenance of your TPX Pistol. There are also some helpful tips on how to correctly pick paint and properly load a magazine. And if you can’t find what you’re looking for in the videos, you may always contact our Tech Service Team at 1-800-533-4831, or 1-260-749-6022.
We apologize in advance for any inconvenience this may cause. We actually became aware of these issues via customer phone calls and paintball forums. We are pleased to offer this free upgrade kit which will make the TPX pistol more adaptable to the many different CO2 cartridges in the marketplace. Thank you for your continued support and ongoing communication – it’s appreciated.
