you're not catching hell from me, the only tippmann i ever liked as much as my mr2 was the pro-carbine.
Theres not a tippmann on earth other than the f/a i would trade it for. The only thing i like about tippmanns is the decent mechanical trigger.

im going to completely ignore the rapper part :mellow:

agreed. I always had better luck with my MR1 than my buddies did with their 98's.

I just thought I'd stand up for tippmann but not on the side of the guy who made fun of that kid, or the "sn1p3r" but I love my 98, maybe that's cause I grew into paintball after the age of the pro carbine, but it's just as good as any marker out there, and really, yeah, I might be blowing money on it, but it's fun making it to what you want it to be.

That being said, I'm gonna save my butt here and admit that I'd like to shoot an Ion or a cocker sometime. ;)

lol ... there is nothing wrong wrong with tippmanns ..i 've got an A5 and a 98 .. they are nearly indestrucable ... i have dropped them , thrown them , stomped on them, fallen on them .. they take a lickin and keep on tickin ... i also however have aDM8, DM7, 06Ego and an 08Ego ... all of these gats are great for their specific purpose .. throwing paint ... i love using the A5 when we go to an indoor course here cuz it is basically a big metal sound amplifier, and that A5 is so BOINKing loud !!!!! hahahahaha .. it scares the crap outof everybody !!!!

bottom line, play with whatever you like and can afford, and don't give a crap about what anybody else says about it .. you're the one who's having fun , right ?

The only Allen Key I use on my MR1 is for the Cap (which was the base of the Stock that the MR1 came with) which plugs the Hole and since I dont use a stock on my MR1, its easier to hold when holding and firing from a corner of a bunker or wall and using either Right or Left Hand and yes, I do have a Full Set of Standard and Metric Allen Keys.

And I might as well throw this in as well, replaced the Quick Strip Pin with a Clevis Pin and inserted a Key Chain Ring for a 1 Point Sling which I also use for my ABT...perty cool huh?

Good starting guns:

Tippman 98c
Spyder Victor
MR1

The tippman is a very good quality for the price.
I would suggest a tippman to any new player.

Victor's are good gun's. I have a friend who has a 2008 angel, and a victor, lol.
He never uses his angel even in arena, unless he gets really serious.
He has a spyder victor with a 14" stiffi on it, lol, the barrel is worth more then the gun.
It's a good gun for beginners.

The MR1 is a good gun, reliable, and sturdy.

The main thing that a begginer needs is a gun that runs on CO2, and is sturdy, doesnt need much cleaning, has easy maintanance, and is not electric. The main things you have to remember is that newbs:
1. Never Clean their gun ( not even wipe down )
2. Never maintenance their gun ( not even lube it, I have seen a kid at P.B. store with a PM8, and their "Daddy" , pay a $25 dollar repair fee to have their gun greased. )
3. Don't store/protect their guns safetly

I have never and will never suggest an electric gun for a begginer. Someone that is new needs to by the base line, and learn how to take people out of a game. If they are spoiled and get a DM8 for christmas for a first gun, they will never fully respect paintball like it should be, and if they continue in paintball they will never have as much skill as they could have.

I know someone that got a PMR SE for their first gun (which isnt like $2000, but its a nice electric gun), and I have played atleast 30 speedball games against him, and he has seriously only shot me once, which was after i had shot him, and i was walking of the field when the game was over and he acidently shot me because he touched the trigger, lol.

Skill is more important then a fancy marker.

I think tippmanns are decent starter guns for woodsball, they can get run over with a car and still shoot, can shoot underwater, and if they arent cleaned it doesnt realy hurt them.

A downside to them is that if you buy one new you are paying way too much for a gun that you almost HAVE to upgrade the barrel on.

There are many better guns for the money (btw tippmann SL-68 IIs PWN)

The reason i say tippmanns work well here, especially with flatlines is because its common knowledge that they let off a sonic boom every time they fire. I tend to use that to my advantage -lethalpanther

This and ignorance is where the essentials of the entire noob=bad with markers comes from. All of my paintball stuff I bought myself, and respected it to the upmost level. After my first game using my 98c, I took it home, took it apart, cleaned it, lubed it, and put it back together (sure I forgot to put the ball latch back in and had to use a rental next time out, until I called Tippmann and got another one, but thats besides the point). I sold candy at school for a month before I had enough money even to get a starter kit. I knew the value of it, I knew how long it took to get it, I screamed at my brother for leaving it in his car -- which has been broken into before -- overnight. Now I won't even let my brother use my marker (Virtued PM7), because I know how bad he is at respecting his own stuff, let alone anyone elses.

If my parents had got me all that stuff without question, without telling me to take care of it, without making me do something to earn it, I probably wouldn't care, I would probably bring it home after a day of play, throw it on the bed, put it on the floor when I go to sleep, and not care at all. Some kids are just stupid, but I believe most of the fault falls with the parents who are willing to spoil their kids. There is a fine line between spoiling and giving your kids a better life than what you had.

pb freek, while I won't argue Tippmanns are rugged, how many times will you really be playing underwater, or running over your gun? As long as someone maintains their gun, almost anything will function under normal paintball conditions.

You won't catch any from me. My first marker was a Piranha, and that thing worked (and still works) better than any Tippmann that's crossed my path in the past.

Do I use other markers now? Yeah, but the piranha's still in the collection. Can't say the same for the Tippmanns.
