    Posted: 06 August 2012 at 4:36pm
 
Earlier this year we launched our groundbreaking new FT-12 rental marker for field owners that can be serviced in less than 60 seconds without tools. Based on over whelming demand and excitement from consumers, Tippmann is now offering the same technology to paintball players everywhere. The Tippmann FT-12 is a new, semi-automatic .68 caliber marker that has been specially engineered to help players reduce maintenance time by as much as 75 percent.
 
The FT-12 features a rugged, die cast aluminum receiver with a compact mil-sim look and an ergonomically-positioned front vertical grip, which is ideal for a wide range of players. The marker’s patent-pending design makes gaining access to internals significantly easier – simply unscrew the barrel, push the unlock button on the collar, remove the barrel nut and flip the top half of the receiver off. Once inside, the modular layout of the FT-12 allows for incredibly fast and worry-free access to all key parts. 
 
The new FT-12 is ideal for anyone seeking an incredibly easy-to-maintain marker that has the proven reliability of a Tippmann. The FT-12 is now being shipped to paintball dealers and will retail for $129. For additional information or to order a FT-12 which will be shipped by one of your local paintball dealers, check out this link at Tippmann Sports - FT-12 Flip-Top Retail Marker.

As someone who has one in their possession, I can wholeheartedly say that this is a fantastic marker, especially at the price point above! Can't wait to take mine out to play!

hey tallen, have you taken this thing out yet? one of the fields i play at has these as rentals, but they always run out and i have my own markers to bring; therefore i feel bad taking one from some poor kid! i'm considering a marker for my girlfriend's son this christmas. the standard i have in absolute caring and maintaining for markers is something i want henry to acquire if he's going to get his own, and this seems like a great starter. however, i want him to be able to upgrade it down the road, or get upgrades via birthdays/good report cards etc. so, a 98 custom comes to mind as well. you can upgrade this puppy much can you?

I absolutely LOVE this marker. Simple, user friendly, and about as reliable as any other marker I've owned.

Is it center feed? It's hard to tell in the picture but it looks like it has a very slight offset.

What sort of upgrades and mods are available for this marker? From what I can tell, there aren't any. I know the purpose for this marker was probably never the ability to spend more money on it, but rather a good solution for a park, but have you heard of Tippmann having plans to do such a thing? A stock would be nice.

What barrel threads does the ft-12 have?
This is why It takes so long to get our guns
