I work for the TPI design department, and all I've got to say is no comment. My original idea consisited of an open bolt electromechanical linear design but with a high quality aluminum body with 4 anodizing colors. The rest of the department wanted to cut costs to compete with Kingman, so they changed the body to plastic and reshaped it. And now there is a mechanical version as well. My apologies to those who don't like it.

P.S. The TPI sponsored tank, the Hellhound, has been redesigned and the old one is for sale. PM Cedric for details.

There's some kind of shens going on here, I just can't figure it out yet. If the ad is a photoshop, it's pretty good.

Is that a drill? Looks like that dual drill I saw on tv. First airsoft now this... I dont like the direction that the company is going.
Ah i just realized, they reincarnated the BE Samurai and gave it that Home Depot look. Burp!

If they wanted to attract speedballers, cheap and unattractive isn't the way to go.

If Tippmann redesigned a gun around a linear clamshell design(smaller bore, possibly the same bore as an autococker, etc.), with an e-bolt type system(stop the seartripping, please?) and an alluminum body, I think it would be successful in destroying the market for kingman, and competing with the Ion. If the valve doesn't have enough volume for the high rates of fire the gun would acchieve, just use a volumizer.

But apparently that isn't tippmann's thing. They should just stick with woodsball i guess

Edit: to add onto my dream tippmann product, move the gripframe up as far as possible while still allowing for a vertical asa to combat the longness of a tippmann.

I'll take one. I wouldn't mind atleast seeing how it performs. Maybe even figure out some handy mods.

On looks, and its gonna perform like any 98c with an expansion chamber and an e-trigger.

Its just disappointing that they had to house all of that in an ugly plastic body that makes it look similar to something brasseagle would make.

And besides,they did nothing to make it any different or better than a previous gun.

Obviously this is supposed to appeal to speedballers, and this is going to be too heavy, slow, and inefficient for their liking.(judging by the majority of the forumers posting here, too ugly too)

(I have made these judgements around my knowledge of tippmann products. I can tell they are using the same hammer platform, which means they are using the same sear tripping platform and the same valve platform. Nothing has changed accept for the ugly plastic body, the expansion chamber, and the vert feed)


Edit: Looking at it again, i noticed the moulded grips. What the hell Tippmann? People like upgrading grips. First the A-5 now this again? What happened to the standard gripframe idea?


Edit2: Every time i look at it it reminds me more of a BE. Yeah, BE uses plastic bodies held together with phillips screws too.
