In addition to the new Straightline Barrel launched yesterday, Tippmann is also announcing at D-Day the launch of a new Pistol to the paintball industry. Because our dealers and core players have been asking for a premium pistol, we feel the opportunity exists for Tippmann to launch a better pistol, using brand new technology that will quickly make it the most sought after pistol on the market. Unfortunately at this time we cannot elaborate much beyond the fact that it will be .68 caliber, lightweight, compact, modifiable and have the Tippmann reliability our customers have come to expect.

At D-Day we will also be giving players an opportunity to sign up for a Sneak Peek email but of course as a Tippmann Dealer you will automatically be updated on a regular basis during the summer months. Although this pistol will not be available until the fall, we are launching at D-Day because we feel we are far enough along with this new technology and that the timing is right to announce an exciting new product to our core group of scenario players.

Tippmann is extremely excited with the initial response of our new products launched this year. The new U.S Army Alpha Black, the updated 98 Custom Platinum Series have surpassed our initial expectations by providing exceptional value to your customers and we feel our entry into this new category will further fuel the growth of paintball with the avid player.

Thanks for your continued support.

Looks like a modded Tac 8/9. Definitely doesn't look blowback, too short in length, unless it is bigger than it "looks". Interesting to see what they are doing. Whether they did blow forward or not, we will have to see.

Well, we'll see. As much as it saddens me to say it, I don't have much faith in them to deliver. :P Gone are to days of the ProCarbine. I love my A5, but it lacks the quality and craftsmanship of the early Tippmanns. Maybe this will change my mind. I'll give it the chance.

Aloha, Doug

If the person on the other end of your gun does not walk away eagerly anticipating the next game because of your actions,
you have failed as a paintballer.

I cannot wait for this... I was just getting into looking at pistols, I guess now I will just wait until this comes out and jump on it.

That bottom rail in the front almost looks big enough to house a 12 gram... then you would only have the paintballs in the grip instead of both the 12 gram and paintballs like the Tiberius pistols. I don't know if you could fit more paintballs in the grip then or not. How would a double stack mag work with paintballs? :ninja:

I'm guessing it's a "short blowback". Basically a lighter weight, low-travel action. You could do an inline very short if you built it right.

Im not much of a pistol person but it will be neat to see if it will contend with the T8/T9. It will be neat to see id tippmann will try to compete with the new BT and Bob Long Marker.

Either that or a Tiberius clone... personally I'm hoping for the short blowback.

To the guy above... I really doubt it will be under $100. There's no way Tippmann would sell it for that price.

Curious to see if it costs an arm and a leg. If not, I'd buy it pending some reviews.

What would be interesting to see is if they do a Tac style marker that runs on mags, but you can also load it from the top if you don't have enough mags... Or because it's going to be lightweight that means they're going to skim somewhere and probably make it a remote pistol, which I do sometimes for my T9 in pistol.

Looks interesting indeed, if they can manage to make the grip a little smaller than the Tac 8's then I may have to get one! My girly hands are to small to comfortably hold a Tac 8...

Well, they did one thing right. Notice the curved trigger. That's something the Tac8 never had.
