U.S. ARMY PAINTBALL EXPANDS PRODUCT LINEUP
New camouflage marker and U.S. Army paintballs highlight enhanced offering
BUFFALO GROVE, Ill. (February 4, 2009) – Based on very strong response from retailers and paintball players alike, Tippmann Sports is proud to announce some exciting additions to its U.S. Army line of products. The recent expansion is anchored by an Alpha Black marker featuring the official U.S. Army camo pattern. This new-look marker offers paintballers an exciting new option when taking the field and is sure to turn some heads. Just like the existing Alpha Black, the camo version incorporates an 11” barrel, an integrated carry handle, an all-metal receiver and a removable magazine that doubles as a toolkit.
In addition to the Alpha Black camo marker, U.S. Army Paintball is also launching a premium line of paintballs. U.S. Army Elite Forces Premium Paintballs will be sold in a 2,000 count box and are specially formulated for long-range accuracy. The new paintballs incorporate a two-tone shell that boldly displays the U.S. Army name on one side and the Army’s Brigadier Star on the other side. Bright yellow fill is also utilized for increased markability. The paintballs, manufactured by ProCaps, will be sold exclusively under the U.S. Army name.
“It has always been our plan to expand the U.S. Army line of products,” said Patrick Ehren, vice president of sales and marketing for Tippmann Sports. “Retailers responded favorably to this realistic and dependable line from the very beginning, and we believe our new camo marker and U.S. Army paintballs will be welcome additions among the growing number of consumers seeking high-quality equipment at an affordable price.”
Other additions to the U.S. Army Paintball product offering include a new e-Grip and goggles. Much like the new Alpha Black, the goggles incorporate the official U.S. Army camo pattern for a unique appearance and on-field stealth. The e-Grip for Alpha Black can shoot up to 17 balls-per-second and features five firing modes, including semi auto, turbo, 3-shot safety burst, auto response and full-safety auto. A nine-volt battery is required.
