Tippmann's Pistol the TPX arrives in stores in April. As Revealed from the Paintball Extravaganza. I have to say it's even more awesome than the prototype version. MILSIM enthusiasts will be glad that the extra time taken to perfect the product was well worth the wait.

Thanks to my fellow Marine and Friend Sideshow from Team IYAOYAS, Dirty South Paintball Team ( ;) ) for the pics.

Looks like a solid pistol. I can't wait to get my hands on one.

As you can see from that first picture. They incorporated the remote support. That bump out the left side has a plug that can be removed and a remote nipple put in so you can holster your gun while the remotes connected.

magazines are standard 1911 .45acp size so standard mag pouches will work. The prize has not been finalized but it's cheaper than an arm or your first born child.

magazine release isnt lefty friendly, but then again who is friendly to leftys in the first place.

you can also see the windows that will keep junk out your magazine in the ammo view holes.

Estimated price of the mags?

How much will they hold and how many shots can you get off a 12 gram?

What kind of plastic does it contain? It looks kind of shoddy.

The barrel had better be aluminum. That's not a question, that's a command.

the barrel is a-5 threaded but like uber skinny. Its made out of Super Chromium in the cool guy & mods version and made out of aluminum in the regular joe version.

The gun from guys that have held it says that it feels SOLID. It's well balanced and it feels right in your hands. The Magazine pricing hasn't been announced yet but I hear cheaper than Tib 8.

Word has it that it shoots about 22 per 12gram.

Considering they're about the size of 1911 mags, I'd bet they're 6 rounds.

It would be awesome if they could've fit more like 12 in by using an overlaying system where they aren't directly stacked on top of each other but sit more like rounds in a real magazine to optimize space. Si?

Given the larger diameter of paintballs, that would probably have resulted in a grip that was too big for some people.  Also, the offset stacked rounds in real pistols can be guided into place by the top of the magazine/chamber and heavy-duty springs; things which might get messy with paintballs.

Agreed.  Its actually too bad they didnt just make the drip a little longer.  Maybe they will come out with extended mags.  The reason I asked is because some of the scenarios we attend can get long and I will want to be able to reload the mags when i can.  I will probably end up cutting down some 10 round tubes to hold only 8.  That way I can just dump those right in and not have to worry about wasting 2 balls (moneys tight lol)

If Tippmann doesn't, I'll bet someone comes up with at least a 10 round if not 12round  mag for these relatively shortly. Depends on how accurate the claim is that they get 12 shots per 12 g.
