already on the drawing board guys,
idea #1. straight 4 pack lever action ala six pack.
Idea #2 4 pack with reversed Tiberius check valves modded in so the gun holds a charge when you pull any single 12ie out.

Not that a 78 degree turn is hard anyway, that's all the release is. We'll see once I get my hands on it!

That'd be sweet! Whenever you start on that, make sure to let us know! :blink:

Whether these and others make this "primary worthy: is hard to say, but they are certainly improvements that take time. To bring a pistol from the computer screen to the hands of players is an incredible amount of work, involving engineering, production, marketing, purchasing, sales, vendors, and all the people necessary to produce over 90 different components making up over 100 individual parts required to make a pistol. While my experience in designing actual is firearms is limited, I can make a valid argument as to how a paintball pistol is significantly more complex than a pistol shooting conventional projectiles. At the very least I can attest that we are not dragging our feet.

Edit: And Tippmann now have a TPX page on their website, set to be mid april release.

MAP is $219.99.

So much for being price-competitive with the Tac-8. $20 so, at the very least, there's no clamshell. And we still don't know what the valve system is...

Finally some info straight from tippmann. I'm liking the looks and 1/4 turn to remove the co2 cap is going to be cool.

They didn't release anything about the actual price but they did say that the maintnance kit would be optional as well as the carrying case when purchasing.

So there's already potential for cheaper options for buying the marker I'm guessing the projected price of $219.99 would be with all the options so IMO it should be at least around $190 for the marker alone.

Kind of like the $300 dollar players package for the Tib 8 where as the marker alone is $230

Its a great looking Marker/pistol. I love the way the CO2 is stored and that you can insert it and it won't be breached until you pull the trigger.

Now, my question is, does it reseal? What if you fire it once, and it won't be a while until you need it again. Would the air be gone?

Great looking marker really, but I hope it works as good as it looks.

Can't wait to find out for myself!

wow...talk about major let down...$220? seems really high for a utility marker. if tiberius really wanted to put the screws to tippmann all they'd have to do is drop the price of their clips, the tpx wouldn't be able to compete. at $220 the tpx is going to have to be an amazing marker to get a foothold in the market.

Tippmann will need to be under the $200 mark to sweep. And that doesn't mean $199.99.

Lol, I will wait to pick one up used or something. I will tell you right now, I will not pay full price for a Tippmann unless their products take a drastic change. But you know the fanboys will pick it up for 220... If it turns out to be AMAZING I would consider.. But I doubt it will be by my standards..

competing with T8:
t8 + 3 mags 240+40+40+40 = $360
Tpx + 3 mags 220 + 20 + 20 + 20 = $280

$80 difference is pretty good. 23% more expensive. Personally having the co2 cartridge in under the barrel makes it a no brainier for me on top of no way I'm paying $40/mag. If its true the mags will actually be $10-15. Tibreious will have to slash its mag prices just to stay in the market.

Out of curiosity, what doe sit have to do to be AMAZING?
