Hey guys there has been a lot of speculation lately on which of Tippmann Markers where made where. As Americans we feel great about purchasing equipment with that Made in the USA logo on the box. It gives us a sense of pride. So when the US Army line was introduced many noticed something they had not seen in any Tippmanns a made in china sticker. This lead to some speculation from uninformed players and to be honestly some flat out crazed accusations that "Tippmann has lost it's soul" that it had "Sold Out". And specially that all it's markers where made in China now days.
Well the Truth is quite different and finally Tippmann has released a statement to clarify the Issue.
Tippmann Clarifies Marker Manufacturing Locations
With the recent launch of the new Carver One, questions continue about the location of Tippmann’s marker manufacturing. First, regardless of where items are made, we want to assure all customers that every product produced by Tippmann is engineered in the U.S. and must pass very stringent quality requirements.
To clarify, the markers made in our Fort Wayne, Indiana facility include the 98 Custom Platinum Series, A-5, and X7, as well as the new X7 Phenom, TPX Pistol and SL-68II. Markers manufactured in China include our line of U.S. Army markers, the international line of TPN markers and the non-Platinum Series 98 Custom. Again, regardless of where markers are manufactured, we believe it is essential that new players have a positive experience when they purchase a paintball marker. Tippmann develops these value products in addition to high performance products like the new X7 Phenom, so that we can continue to provide the best products regardless of the player’s skill level or style of play.
