3 words. I. Want. It. That looks great! So what if it is a clamshell? If it shoots at 280 FPS, holds and shoots paintballs, and is durable, its a good gun.

I wonder how many turns it takes to change a 12 gram?

5 at most, probably 3 or 4 complete turns though.

It takes way fewer turns, trust me. The R&D guys came up with a ridiculously fast changer when compared to any co2 changer out there. I think it may even be faster than the one you can add to your tac clip to speed the actual 12 gram change.
Trust me, you'll be impressed. I was. :rolleyes:
I've been playing for longer than you've been alive.. and I still haven't been comitted!!

In my demented mind I thought of a lever release/reloading system for the CO2 cartridges. You would push a button, a lever on a hinge falls down out of the gun, the cartridge falls out, you slide another one in, and push it back up. I think that would be better than a screw.

We at Tippmann are amazed at the number of posts and online discussions regarding the pistol we will be launching soon. Recently, an unauthorized photo was taken and then distributed on the web. We have asked a number of web sites to take down the prototype photo because of the poor image quality. As a T-Mail user, we are showing you for the first time a new shot of the pistol which is closer to how the final production version will look. But, please bear in mind this is still a prototype.

As a quick update to the pistol design, notice that the CO2 cartridge is located just beneath the barrel. It is not part of the magazine. This helps improve air efficiency, reduces the size of the grip and allows us to provide additional magazines at a great value. When completed, our pistol will have its own unique look and set a new standard for the pistol category in performance and reliability.

Unfortunately, the launch has been delayed for a few months, but we want to thank you for your continued patience – we believe the TPX Pistol will be well worth the wait.[quote]


I would like permission to post this new picture.

This is what I heard as well. Tank goes in and you pull the trigger once to puncture the tank..then the next trigger pull fires

So they are going old school sheridan style, meaning it needs a priming shot. Damn that is just sad. I thought we were 20 years past that. Honestly, insta-pierce is the way to go now.

They could have just easily put a lever changer in or a drop out. Why they would want you to need a priming shot is just stupid. Not cool. :P
