STRAIGHT FROM TIPPMANN:
New TPX Pistol CO2 Upgrade Kit
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.

Hope to see you there! Having trouble finding me? Check with General Sean Scott of Smart Corps. He’ll probably have me on a mission somewhere.
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.
Let the rejoicing begin. The Tippmann TPX Paintball Pistol is now availble for pre-order at TippmannParts.com. The Tippmann TPX Pistol Paintball gun has been a long time coming. I first saw the TPX at it’s mysterious debut at Oklahoma D-Day 2008. Just a shadow then. Now, 10 months later, you get to put one in your hands.
The TPX .68 Caliber Paintball Pistol is an exciting new compact design. It’s light weight design is easy to maintain and is more customizable than other paintball pistols. It uses 12 gram CO2 cartridges but can also be converted to accept a remote line connection. You can fit Hammer Head barrels and muzzle breaks to it also.
The Tippmann TPX Paintball Pistol has all the benefits of being a Tippmann Sports Product: excellent customer service and manufacturing and the Tippmann Warranty.
This paintball pistol will be one of the hottest paintball products of 2009.
You can start to Pre-Order them now at TippmannParts.com. We expect to have the first batch in stock by mid April.
