Bud and his sweetie have two, I have shot one and it was OK. Trigger could be better but I had no trouble shooting score with it my first time. The mags are interesting, but proprietary I think. I have the CMMG conversion and a dedicated .22 AR on their system so am eat up with CMMG compatible mags. So as much as I might like a Tippmann myself I will pass. That and I can shoot one of my budís one weekend a month if I choose.

Well, fit and finish is less than expected for the cost, the rifle shipped without magazines in the box - it was supposed to come with two of them.

They were less then apologetic about the issues, did finally get the magazines today - I did check on him telling me that all the Tippmann rifles have the same "casting' flaws checked 3 other rifles and yep all are like that.

Rented a Tippmann at a range and used their magazine to check function.
100 percent reliable with first 100 rounds of CCI mini-mags.

I do like the sights and trigger was pretty good. I found modifications needed to be to fit some aftermarket AR parts to the Tippmann.

The rifle runs pretty clean - just the front of the bolt and and the magazine seems to be coated with fouling.

Now that the magazines showed up (and they are proprietary, we can run it harder and see how it works out.
