Tippmann X7 Phenom New Paintball Gun Release
The Phenomenal X7! TippmannParts.com is now taking pre-orders for November delivery.
The new X7 Phenom from Tippmann has been labeled the “Ultimate Woodsball Marker”. Built along the current X7 body style, the X7 Phenom is already ahead of the game in accessories. It can accept over 20 original X7 mods and upgrades, even the Flatline barrel! With a new design bolt system, seen nowhere else in paintball, the X7 Phenom has the best technology in a smaller package. Almost 3 inches shorter than the X7, the Phenom is lighter and still has the Tippmann Mil-Sim look. It has Picatinny rails to mount all your tactical accessories!
The new Flex Valve system allows for faster rates of fire than blow back markers and can operate on either co2 or HPA. The blow forward design operates at a low 300 psi. That means more shots per tank, and a lot less kick and movement. You’ll be able to stay in the game longer and hit more targets with the super smooth operation of the new Flex Valve.
Semi or Full-Auto? You decide! The X7 Phenom incorporates the Hall-Effect trigger and safety system proven in the previous H.E. Grips. Easily switch from safe, to semi, to one of 5 firing modes. Just flick the switch and change your style of play from sniping to machine gunner! It’s a seamless change not only between modes, but from a mechanical operation to electronic.
Another feature players have wanted is the option of a mechanical backup to the electronic modes. If you get in a tight spot and your battery dies, flick back to semi and you’ve got full mechanical operation to fight your way out! But that’s not all! It’s a sear-less design. That’s right no sear in this baby. Less parts equals simplicity, less wear, and a smoother trigger pull.
Also included on the X7 Phenom is a redesigned cyclone feed. To keep up with the Flex Valve system, the need for an upgrade feed system was a must. The new design fires up to 20 bps is also easier on paint.
Does not qualify for the X7 rebate program.

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.

I just spoke with Tippmann Sports and they’ve pushed the release date of the TPX Pistol back a few weeks. We now expect to have them in and shipping around the 29th of May, 2009. Don’t be bummed though. Remember this is a quality Tippmann product and they don’t want to release something that isn’t up to their standards.
My understanding is that the design is great and prototypes work great. It looks like a couple of the parts from 3rd party were not manufacturered to Tippmann’s exact specifications. This caused issues with performance and so halted productions. Once these component issues are resolved then production should be in full swing.

Just a quick update. I just spoke with Tippmann Sports about the release date of the Tippmann TPX Pistol paintball gun. The new official release date is the Last Week of April, 2009. They said they are on schedule for that and do not forsee any further delays.
We’ve been offering a pre-order on the TPX pistol on our site. That package comes with the marker, a carrying case, and 2 magazines. We ordered LOTS of these paintball pistols. We have not yet sold through all of our initial order so you can still pre-order and be able to get your gun as soon as they’re released.
Our pre-order page now includes easy links to add TPX accessories like the TPX Leg Holster, Hammerhead Pistol Barrel, 12 gram co2 cartridges, or extra pistol magazines.

Lord Odin from the A5 Operator’s Group wrote this well thought out and thorough paintball gun comparison pitting the Tippmann A-5 against the Tippmann 98 Series guns.
Tippmann A-5 vs Tippmann 98 Series Paintball Guns
Tippmann A-5 Paintball Gun
The Tippmann A-5 is the next generation of markers after the Tippmann 98 with a few major differences. On average, they cost a bit more, but for about $50, you get a superior marker.
The first major upgrade is the Cyclone feed system built into A-5 marker. Tippmann has done away with the vertical feed and have added a pneumatic force feed system that virtually eliminates jams. Unlike electronic loaders, there are no batteries and force is only applied to the balls when the gun cycles. Due to the large opening of the Cyclone, it eliminates jams in the feedneck that can happen on the 98 Custom and any other small feed neck gun. The Cyclone has a lower profile than traditional hoppers, which is ideal for woodsball because players will mostly pop up over something than off to the side. Reducing your silhouette reduces your chance of getting shot.
Tippmann A-5 E-Grip
Tippmann has also made the gun more accessible by including pushpins for commonly removed items. Rather than completely disassembling the marker like on the 98’s, you can now remove pushpins to access your optional E-grip, remove your internals to lubricate or fix a problem, or change stocks. The A-5 lets you completely remove your trigger and grip. This is important if your trigger is malfunctioning or if it starts to rain and you want to switch back to a mechanical grip. The front grip is also removable, which gives you more options of style and placement on the marker.
The internals of the A-5 gun are very similar to the 98 Custom with one major exception. The A-5 now makes use of a tombstone. This is a piece that slides into the gun from the outside and is locked into place but is easily removable. On the 98’s, a braided hose was screwed directly into the valve body and was not easily removed unless in the staging area. The Tombstone on the A-5 allows for easier disassembly and gives you more upgrade options. Now you can mount a regulator directly to the gun, move locations of your gas line, or even connect a remote line directly. And all of this is done easily by attaching it to the tombstone with your hands. No tools are necessary to connect components to the tombstone or the tombstone to the gun.
Tippmann 98 Custom Platinum Series ACT Paintball Gun
The A-5 now has completely enclosed internals. The 98 Custom had its cocking handle connected to the hammer, which exposed your internals to dirt, paint, and other debris. On the A-5, the cocking handle has been relocated and the internals closed off, which will make your gun operate better and cleaner. Parts such as o-rings will need less replacement, as well.
The A-5 comes with a different barrel threading than the 98 Series guns. One of the complaints of 98 users was the barrel twisting loose on them due to the steep threading. The gradual threading of the A-5 barrels requires more turning to remove the barrel. This creates a tighter fit and it is much less likely to unscrew.
Lastly, manufacturers are producing many more upgrades and accessories for the A-5 instead of the 98 series, which seems to be taking a back seat to the A-5. This gives you many more upgrade options when you choose the A-5 and many of them are easy to install with the quick release pins.
For the little extra money, the A-5 is big step up from the 98 and is well worth price.
-Thanks for the review Lord Odin! An abbreviated version of this comparison has been incorporated in to our Tippmann A-5 Buyer’s Guide. TippmannParts.com carries the full line of Tippmann A-5 and 98 Series Paintball Guns in stock at the best prices.

Tippmann just released the US Army Alpha Black Tactical in a Digital Camo edition. Street price will be $149 on these bad boys.
US Army Alpha Black Tactical Edition Paintball Gun with M16 Mods - Camo
The Tactical version of the US Army Alpha Black’s come with the M-16 mods installed including a front sight and shroud, shoulder stock, and sight rail. A hopper is not included with these guns so don’t forget to pick one up if you need it. The digital camo is a nice alternative to all the generic black mil-sim guns that have been coming out recently.
The Alpha Blacks come in several different versions: Basic, EGrip, M16, M16 with EGrip, and Tactical. We also have some great packages setup that include your tank, goggles,and hopper. A few paintballs and you’re ready to play.
The word I heard (that rhymes) is that these are a limited run so make sure to get yours before they’re gone. The guns are shipping from Tippmann now so we should have ours in a few days.
Available for purchase here at TippmannParts.com
