Well, Just like he said, Aperrently its supposed to be a Baretta CX4 Storm Carbine, if the stock for it came out, Then it would seem more logical, But the CAR stock looks kinda dumb on it. And with that note, I dont at all care for tippmanns Folding CAR stocks for the US army guns.
Practical to a certant purpose but your better off just putting your stock down all the way, I also have to much of a problem with folding stocks, I always manage to break them so they wont stay locked in reg pos.

The tippmann project salvo CAR stock.
I might not have been clear, But any idiot who doesnt know that a CAR stock retracts, Shouldnt play paintball.
The tippmann project salvo stock is shown in  the picture, To me I dont like this stock, Becuase it folds. In my opinion Folding stocks are okay, But a folding CAR stock is just gay..

Not a fan of the stock on the Salvo.  I do however prefer folding to collapsing.  (Makes for easier storage.)  If you want a folding stock that won't break, check out BT or JCS.

I perfer Retracting. It works better for me when I rush.
The folding makes the gun wobble all over the place when its folded anyways. Kinda pointless becuase the guns are top heavy from the paint.

Just get an ARC loader.  No electronics and should keep up with this gun no problem.  A great way to have a backup gun that is ready no matter what.
Stay low, run fast, and hope that paintball doesn't hit your...

I was thinking more about the E-grip model. I doubt any gravity fed would keep up with it.  I'd like to get ahold of one and see if it would be possible to mod a cylcone to fit.

Looks like It would be worth while investing in one as an "Insurance Policy"
AKA A backup gun.
Only Lord knows when Ill break my alpha black. But A backup rifle would be nice.
The look of it aint all to great though. Someone definantly needs to base a mod off this.

so will this have a drop-open elbow like the 98's?
 
and i agree with mack: the pro-lite sliding forgrip/elbow was the best!

I can tell you guys right now, the Carver One isnt going to replace the ABT at all, because more players (New & Old) are buying the ABT, Salvo, Bravo and Sierra One, this can clearly be seen in the ABT Forum and Tippmann's Face Book Page.

Also, an old trend is slowly making its way back into the MilSim Realm...and thats adding a working Ammo Box to the ABT/Salvo, which only means that the use of the Cyclone and or Hopper will no longer be needed.

I recently read a post in the Alpha Black Forum, that Tippmann is not going to make the Cyclone available for the Carver One..is this True?

I'm just starting with the fun that is paintball. 
I'm buying a Carver One because it's something I can afford, it has a built in foregrip vs a front grip which never feels right to me (and on no other tippmann model can I completely remove the front grip), and because it has basically the same innards as the Alpha Black, which I've borrowed on two occasions and trust.

The question I have is about barrels.  I've seen posts where its stated that 98C threads are accepted, but in descriptions of barrels all over the net, they don't destinguish between Tippmann 98 models.  How do I know which barrels really fit?  Also, since I've never used any other barrels, what quick suggestions can you make?

I'm not looking for longer distance (I know that's not possible without a flatline, which doesn't fit the Carver One), but more accuracy.

1. How do I distinguish which barrels from Tippmann or other brands will fit?
2. Suggestions for barrels?

Let's get this paintball career started off with the right marker. Thanks!

Hello All (this is my first post).

In my research phase I was looking around for Carver One w/ eGrip videos and couldn't find any. I queried the tippmann account on twitter but they didn't have one either so after buying it off the tippmann site and prepping for a game the following day my son took some video on his iphone demonstrating me firing the Carver One w/ eGrip using a ViewLoader Force feeder ($35). I'm using a third party two point sling a(20$) and the salvo stock ($40). 

Hopefully my youtube demo video can help folks decide how cool this inexpensive solution is for paintballers like me that go on occasion to walk-on games:
