Well, the BT TM7 is produced by Empire paintball (KEE Sports) and is
based on the Invert Mini (Now Empire Mini) paintball marker. It's a
completely different league than the other two markers you're looking
at. Minis use a FASOR (Forward Air Spring Operated Return) system
which means you're looking at only being able to run HPA/Nitrogen
through the BT-TM7 which will increase your start up costs by at least
75 if you don't want to find yourself running back to the fill
station after every single game. What's more, with the TM7 you're
going to need a motorized hopper which will increase your costs even

As for the Sierra One (Project Salvo here in the US) You're looking at
a very nice mil-sim marker with lots of options. So long as you can
put it on a picitinny rail system, you can put it on your Sierra One.
What's more, you have the option of playing semi-auto with CO2,
popping in a RT (reactive trigger) and still running CO2, or upgrading
to the e-trigger and even then, be able to use CO2 (though HPA is
better for it at that rate of fire). That means your startup costs are
cheaper, and you can build the marker and fire modes to your style of
play AND your budget.

As for the A5, it's an older marker, not AS customizable as the Sierra
One, but it's a great shooter straight out of the box. The integrated
positive feed system with the Cyclone is HUGE. No more worries about
out-shooting your hopper and chopping rounds. It runs great on CO2 or
HPA, and there are quite a few kits out there to make it look like
virtually any variant of the MP5 there is.

Now, if you want true all-out customization. The Tippmann X7 is the
way to go. Check
it out
you can make it look like any weapon you want with all
the available upgrades and accessories.

Hope this helps!

Hi there i'm a first time buyer i've been watching over alot of different makes and various markers and Tippmann have some of the best by the looks of things, three i've been looking at are the TM7, A5 and Sierra one which one is best for starters?

I want a TM7 although i've been looking around at others, first off i'd like to ask what's the cheapest brand new TM7 i can get? Maybe something under 250.
I would love a TM7 but i'm seeing it at like 250+ most places so unless i find it used i don't want to spend alot for a first time but may get one later, if anyone knows a better Price for brand new that would be great. (Don't fancy second hang because they're more than likely worn down and i'll have to spend out on new parts anyway)

Also the the A5 looks appealing but is the TM7 better?

And as a final the Tippmann Sierra One looks like a fairly balanced Marker, is it very customizable?
130 seems like a fair price and from what i hear it's pretty good, but i'm wondering if i can change it that much?
Personally i would like this one as a first time because it's fairly cheap.
Welsh do it best.
