For those who are wondering, c3h8 is propane, hence the c3

it runs off the same principles as co2, its expanding gas. no, theres no combustion...so the flamethrower idea is still in effect :p

I hope this isn't their high end marker that all the rumors are talking about.

Propane? where'd ya get it filled at? Something tells me local paintball fields won't start carrying propane tanks (although I'm sure you could siphon some off from the barbeque tank).

Anyone wanna tell me the advantages of using propane over air?

It seems to use standard disposable propane canisters, like the ones you thread onto lanterns and portable camp stoves. You'll find them roughly three aisles away from the paintball aisle at walmart.

Oh, well that ain't to bad. But I hope you'd get a lot out of them. Could become expensive after a while, espicially if your friends get their scuba filled up for free at the local firehall.

50,000 shots from a 16oz tank seems like enough to me. I'm not sure if I've fired that many in my paintball career. I wonder what the stock accuracy is with that barrel? I've heard it gets hot after about 25 shots, I bet that's why the barrel is composite, so people don't burn themselves. Anyways, I hope it does indeed have interchangable barrels so I can get an aftermarket one(I don't have much faith in tippmann's stock barrel) I think I'm used to real firearms enough to avoid burning myself on a metal barrel.

Some thoughts:

  • If it's a pump, why worry that much about how many shots the tank holds (it's not like you'll be shooting all that fast)
  • Having worked with propane on camper shells, I know that you have to be careful with the tanks to not allow any liquid propane to get into the system because it can gum up stove valves-this marker could have similar problems if stored incorrectly
  • I'd also be careful only to install/uninstall tanks outside and away from smokers, open flames, etc.
  • New Tippmann C3-Just add rednecks, campfires, and beer "Hey there Billy-Joe-Jim-Bob; hold muh PBR and watch this."

A pump is their new gun? Great, I was expecting a High-End marker.

The propane sounds good to me, i mean 50,000 shots

Tippmann would be crazy to make a high-end electro.... Being as they cater to the new players crowd.

There is combustion, why else would they have a spark plug?  (Tippmann Part #:TA07073)  See schematic in their manual...

Heh - people have been clamoring for Tippmann to make an electro.  Well there you go - an electro pump.

electric, ewwwwwww. I'd rather have a hammer and flint. It's pump, so it won't please the people who wanted an electro, and it's electronic, so it won't please people wanting a fool-proof dependable pump.

From what Ive gathered, it uses combustion to compress a piston that forces the ball out the barrel. Sortof like the e-volt that uses a big solenoid to compress a gas piston.
