They're not that picky with paint.  Furthermore you can fire more than one magazine full of ammo per CO2 cartridge.  (I usually replace after emptying the mag twice; a friend of mine goes longer.)

The one point that Skeletor mentioned that I do agree with is, having used both types of paintball pistols, I find I prefer the tube feed style over the magazine feed system.  Yes, the magazine feed is much cooler, but it is handier to have more rounds before a reload is needed and I like being able to easily "top off" my pistol.

meh if you want a marker that is easy to reload shots and co2 seperatly and quickly, get a good number of shots per cartridge and be able to get a barrel kit for it look at a phantom. Put a little frantom or say a 6" carbon fiber with a mini pump handle, and get the new lever action co2 upgrade, a guy on mcb makes them, look phenominal, just pull lever and cartridge falls right out, and the stick feed allows for quick reload using 10 round tubes. yeah, phantoms are more expensive but you could carry much more ammo, get more shots per cartridge, shoot more accuratly and not care about what paint you use, and save a whackload on extra mags(plus pumps get more respect than pistols, most non milsim types regard pistols as a sign of weakness/stupidity).

its easy to be famous, just set yourself on fire

pbjunkie is saying that it's a magazine fed pistol. But that is kind of obvious from the silhouette... riiiight?

Hmmm I don't see the words "affordable" up there

 It does look a little like a Tac9

 

 

However under the barrel on the new tippman pistol (from the silhouette anyway) you may have room for a 12gm CO2 cartrage.

 Lets Hypothasize for a second that with the standard pistol size you can fit about 8 maybe 9 rounds in a grip magazine. And if you make air system effcient enough you could get 16 shoots out of a 12-16 shots out of 12gram.  This could reduce the production costs of the extra clips making them cheaper then $40 a pop.

Allthough that are under the barrel might be where they have the rail to add bells and whistles.  Which I personally am not that interested in. I just want a simple pistol that is easy to reload air and paint and wont cause me to take aout a second mortage.

Hmmmmmm   /me strokes chin 

 

Allow me to dream here. To eject the CO2 cartage you use a "pump" action like on a PGP pop another one in the slide it forward

I'm just going to cross my fingers and see what happens

I can get three mags out of a 12 gram even when I'm doing rapid double-taps.

Edit:  ^^^Tested it out this weekend.

So do you shoot a mag-remove it- reload the balls- then shoot it again? and you can get 3 mags out of 1 cartrage?

With out lossing air inbetween reloads?

 

If so proof in point that the CO2 should be able to be loaded independently from the balls

Essentially yes.  I have two mags and shoot both of them off, reload both, and repeat.

No, anyone who has used one of these experiences a slight air loss every time they remove the mag.

How so?

Not that I disagree.  As I said, I prefer the tube fed pistols. I just prefer them for a different reason; I like the ability to easily "top-off" a partly used magazine.

In defense of the Tac-8 it is much more consistent than any other pistol I've used* and this translates (for me) to much better accuracy.

*I've owned two versions of the PT, a Sidekick Semi, a Piranha USP, a Delta 68 and the Tac 8.  I've used/tested several others.
