Not that many people talk about it because it is not that good. It is decent. In fact I think the only way it could get better is if the puncture mechanism, you know, actually worked.

And if the magazines actually fed paint correctly. As is, they feed only the toughest shelled paint. Any 'give' in the shell, and the mag binds up.

I haven't been able to test how the mag feeds. In the TWO that i have bought, neither would peirce the 12 gram.

Well I guess i should correct myself. I've bought one, it didn't work, and the replacement they sent didn't work either.

That's a little sad. I have seen one, and shot one, but I don't own one. My verdict is that it's not a bad marker in the least. However, those small problems with the feed and the co2 are a bit problematic. The co2 punctures properly on ONE brand of co2 canister, the one you gotta pay more for, and the one you can't even find in Canada. I don't remember the brand, but it's a little longer than most brands and it is the one that they designed it for, since no 12 gram is exactly the same. One definitely stupid thing is if you go to reload without expending the whole mag, you lose 2 instantly.

Heard it from a LOT of TPX owners. IMO, T-Freak hit it perfectly. Tiberius > TPX. $20 more gets you better construction, better piercing (a screw system beats the TPX system when the TPX system doesn't pierce), better mag design, and an all-around better pistol. The only thing I can say that I like about the TPX is the price of the mags, not the quality or design, just the price.

I agree with Jackson 100%. Tippmann needs to completely redesign the TPX internally. I sold my TPX and got a Tiberius T8...havent looked back since.

Tippmann's quality has been going downhill for years, and the tpx is no exception. It just feels cheap in your hands.

So, honest question here...How many people actually really thought that the TPX would be a good marker? After all the failures tippmann has had over the last few years, did people really think/believe this would be the end all pistol that so many raved it would be? :laugh:

As soon as i heard they were doing a pistol the first thoughts out of my mouth were, this is going to be a huge failure. Maybe it's cause i was horribly jaded by my old tippmann, or maybe it's cause i read tons of stories of failures in them daily, but i never saw this as going to be a good marker to begin with. Like Jackson said, The cheap mags, great...everything else...not so much

This hurts, I love tippmann. I bought a tpx and it has worked wonders for me. I've played with a tac8 and found it to be just as good as the tpx. I cant see whats wrong with it. all I know that crossman doesn't work well with it but brass eagle does. other then that I've had great luck with it.
If you can't hack it, then I suggest you pack it!

I was wondering when someone was going to write this...it seems as though it's in every single thread where a Tippmann product is mentioned... :laugh:
