Yes, because they formed an alliance with SpecOps.

Actually I think they do dominate the paintball industry. They've been around for ages. Tippmann's are the most used rentals out there by fields, both Woods and Speedball. There are also tons of new players that buy Tippmann, mainly because they can go to any Walmart or Sporting Goods store and buy one. There are alot of tippmanns out there. Trust me.

Holy crap thats cool. Now I dont know what to do. Build my dream MR1 and save money because I already own spyder parts... or buy a X-7 and build it into my dream gun.

Does anyone else see this video as a direct slap to Kingman? Kind of teasing at the fact that the MR series came out with no upgrades available for body customisation and such?

But the combo of Tippman and Spec Ops maybe for the better. It would bring up the price, considering Spec Ops is a tad over what other places sell. (Sometimes) but the quality will be increased as well.



Also, you guys do realise that Tippman was an actual gun developer for the military at one point right? They have proven experience in buiilding things like this... This X-7 is torturing me...

Idk if I should spend major cash to get one and the upgrades, or spend little on an MR1 and be elite in the sence that it will be harder for someone to copy my design, considering there arnt that many available choices for the MR series yet.

Kingman better start making parts for their MR series fast, or they are going to get slapped pretty hard by Tippman.


Wow, if I was to get one, and make it the way I want it (like a G-36) it would cost me $470.85 retail.

As where the MR1 will only cost me... somewhere under $320 to do what I want. Hmm...

I've always been a woodsball player first and foremost, but never felt the need to have a marker that looked like a real gun. I've always said you can play woodsball with a tourny gun but you can't play speedball with a scenario gun. (very effectively) I guess that's why I've adapted my Pilot and Shocker to perform for me in that arena. It would seem they (tipp-ops, or special-man) have realized that speedball marker performance is a positive since it looks like that new gun is geared towards that goal.
One thing about magnesium; it's brittle and can't be repaired very well. The motorcycle industry has used it for years on engine cases and other parts.

If it were that brittle, you wouldn't find MAG wheels made of the stuff...now would we?
I think it's safe to say that a 2,000 lb car, racing, hot-rodding around, hitting speedbumps and pot holes with Magnesium wheels...is going to be fine for a paintball marker. It's not a hammer, nor is it a sliding board. Take care of your gear and it will take care of you.
