Tippmann US Army Carver One with E-Grip Shipping Delays

It looks like the Egrip version of the Tippmann US Army Carver One is still a bit out.  The last update I received from Tippmann is May 18th, about 3 more weeks.  Sorry!  I know some of you already have pre-orders for this new release from Tippmann but we can’t ship them any faster than they can make them.  Tippmann always makes sure to put out quality product.  Some times the delivery date of those products gets pushed back because of this.  But that’s okay.  Who wants a buggy gun?   So be patient and we’ll ship orders out as soon as we can.

You can still pre-order the Carver One with Egrip on our site.  The Carver One Basic and the Power Pack are already in stock and shipping.

The US Army Carver One Paintball guns have the basic inline bolt system from a 98 and include built in sights and plenty of rails for mounting accessories .

Lapco Aluminum Cocking Handle for Tippmann 98’s – Just Arrived

Just arrived. We’ll be taking pictures and should have them up on the sites soon.  Here’s the cocking handle on Lapco’s site. Lapco has long made a stainless steel version of this cocking handle too. Now these knobs are basically for looks but they do have a nice shape to them so you never have to worry about tearing up your fingers when cocking your Tippmann 98. This is the original Tippman 98 cocking handle. It’s normally covered by a little rubber cap but those can fall off and you’re left with this serrated handle. These handles, both the stainless steel and the aluminum version, will fit on ALL of the Tippmann 98 series gun from the original Model 98 up to the 98 Custom Pro Platinum gun. They’ll also fit on the new US Army Project Salvos and and US Army Alpha Blacks.
