I recently have been interested in buying a new paintball marker, and was not looking to have it be to expensive or to fancy, which is why I was considering the Alpha Black Tactical marker with E-grip.

So far I have owned a
Tippmann 98 custom from 1998 with an M4 Stock
A BT Assualt M4 style marker with seperate magazine

And I have really liked the M4 style marker because it fots my age and weighs just right, so I was wondering would it be better to buy an Alpha Black Tactical with E-grip or a BT Delta?
I'm back, and this time for good.

An Alpha Black is pretty much a 98 Custom with an M4 shell. Grant it all BT/Tippmann markers are pretty much the same internally. I personally prefer the Delta.

I have an a5 but my buddy has an Alpha Black and I have played with it. Here are the pros and cons.
Pros: Very accurate with stock barrel. I was suprised at just how accurate it is. Im not sure what its called but it has a feature that allows you to remove the feed neck and run a squeegee down the barrel to clean after a break. It is amazing how fast you can actually do it. Also it is a tippmann and very durable.
Cons: I thought it was VERY heavy especially with a tank directly in the ASA. If you play scenario you would definitely want a remote line.

Overall I thought It was definitely worth the price. It has exceeded my friends expectations for sure.

Thank you both, I am used to carrying the same weight as an M16/M4 and I do use a remote line, and I really like the price tag.

Well I have seen and worked on a Alpha Black Egrip and it is basically a 98 custom with egrip. May i say if you want the M4 look this cant be beat. For the cheap price tag i say go for it.

Like everyone else is saying, it's nothing more than a 98c. I held one at a big game once and the thing was pretty heavy. And from what I felt it was sort of clunky.

Does anyone know how much it weighs? My BT is pretty heavy and very clunky with a magazine bigger than it should have been.

Considering the price, its worth it.
its reliable. ive had it for several months and it has never chopped a ball. its very easy to strip and clean.
it also is as tough as nails.

my only problem with it is that its hard to upgrade. the reason for this is that there is only one upgrade kit and anything else you have to mount yourself.

overall a very good marker

I will say that the Alpha Black is definitely worth the money. I have gotten many wows on my Alpha Black a.k.a. Jackpot about how it looks and fires. All being said it is not a waste of money.

Side note: The field I play at used my spec ops name and Jackpot with the accessories I have for it in a video they made to hype the rescue game they held on February 8th. Even though they didn't use it for the game they still posted it to Youtube Title "Alpha Black Mission". If you need accessory ideas check it out.

Have you considered one of the Milsig markers. The are mag-fed but can be changed it over to hopper fed if you want:

[ I don't own one of these. Just been researching since I became interested ]


From the canadian distributor (because it has this newest model and more info than US sellers):

http://www.milsig.ca/store/index.php?main_...;products_id=19

Top of the line Milsig K-Series Elite CDN Model ( ~ $580 USD )

More affordable Commando model ( ~ $380 USD )

If you go to the Milsimempire.com forums you can find some good reviews on it. Seems like a very good marker. A lot better than the Rap4 T68's.

I don't have one so can't say first hand. What I've read in threads over at milsimempire.com is that they hold up well.

heavy is relative. my DT is heavy.... a 98 isnt heavy compared to my DT. an alpha is just a beefy 98. most people try to make their 98s milsim anyways, so why not buy one already modded? im looking into getting one as a backup and joytoy when i dont feel like using my DT or f8. you cant beat the price for the tippmann name.

I think so, because the internals are essentialy the internals from a 98 Custom and it only costs $120 (Approx.) and a 98 Custom is $130 (Approx.), so its $10 bucks cheaper, it performs well, its got the M4 Milsim look, so I say y the hell not?
