My review is written out of frustration, yes 1+5 are the same thing. I have never bought paint from Walmart but I have to use field paint when playing at local fields so there isn't much I can do about that. I was using Draxxas Field paint which ran great in my A5. The end cap is now replaced with a new fix from Tippmann that has an adjustment for the different size 12 grams.As for preloading the mags Tippmann themselves will tell you that you cannot preload them ( like the night before). I tried that once even leaving them out of the gun with the springs locked on the balls jammed in there. Reb Cpl you may be one of the lucky ones that got a good pistol, but as far as mine and the ones my friend have they are crap. Having said that they are still a Tippmann and I'm sure they will do everything they can to fix these problem. I'm glad to hear your is working great, but call Tippmann to get the new end cap upgrade it is a good fix for that problem.

I can't for the life of me imagine why you'd want to preload magazines the night before a game. Would you fill hoppers that far ahead?

I'll never once deny that the TPX is a picky marker in terms of what its going to shoot, but I can't imagine having the problems that you're having.

I have the tpx and holster.  I have had many of the same problems with the pistol.  My co2 cartridges often do not puncture, had to use a spacer.  I chopped a lot of balls and often a squeegee wouldn't cut it.  Would have to strip the whole gun and clean the mags which are not easy to reassemble.  I have a question.  If tippmann is addressing these issues in a new version of the pistol are they taking care of the early adopters.  Or do we have to buy these "upgrades" (fixes)?

Talked to a tippman airtech today at paintball shop.  He said just drop the gun off and any fixes tippmann releases are free, he'll even install them for me.

Which is interesting because there are other online vendors that link to their site when answering "technical" questions and get away with this.

It's a grey area...

I mean, they ARE answering technical questions, and you DO have to get the parts somewhere, but at what point does it become spamming? It seems like not every post needs to have a link to Tippmannparts...

I actually had a mod send me a testy PM because of it.  Being me, I handled it maturely and politely pointed out that contrary to what was stated in the PM they were not actually part of Tippmann.  I don't recall receiving an answer after that.
