yes it is a tippy... but why save for something else? guess only if you want it quieter.... other than that.... i dont mind my loud tippy.. cuz you can turn towards me and eat my paint!!!!!!!!!!!
try the madmann spring kit its around 20 or 30 bucks 5 different springs for different force the higher the spring pressure the quicker the bolt will return and less air will escape. a bit more efficant but heck its only 50yds light em up!
