Tippmann Paintball Guns And Markers From A To Z
By Niko Brain
If there is a brand of markers that has really left a mark on the world of paintball, then it is Tippmann. Tippmann paintball guns are a breed apart from the other standard markers in the market. Adhering to the highest quality standards and having a known reputation for dependability, Tippmann is in a league of their own. Tippmann paintball guns are made for beginners and pro's alike. Tippmann markers are just about perfect for anyone deciding to start playing paintball.
The Tippmann 98 Custom Series
The 98 custom is one of the best guns from the stable of Tippmann. It's actually so good that most, if not all paintball fields rent it out as the default marker. It is a semi automatic gun with a price tag under $150, this is good, considering most markers these days can start at $300. The gun is fully upgradeable, easy to clean and maintain and will last longer than most other paintball guns. You can easily install a double trigger and start shooting at 20 bps (balls per second). The gun rarely chops and usually is very accurate up to a distance of 100 meters. If you need more distance then you can always upgrade the barrel to maybe a J&J or Redz.
The Tippmann A-5 Series
The A-5 is one of the best recreational markers in the mid priced market segment. Built with a unique cyclone feeding system, the accuracy and rate of fire is tremendous. There are virtually zero ball breaks in the hopper and misfires are almost non-existent. This .68 caliber semi automatic marker is also fully upgradeable and with a standard barrel upgrade can be on par with the best guns on the market. The Tippmann A-5 shoots lightning fast at upwards of 25 bps. As with all Tippmann markers, maintenance is very easy and the marker can be dismantled and cleaned with minimal effort on your part. The Tippmann A-5 usually starts around $200 and up, depending on what kit and upgrades you want.
The Tippmann 98 Custom Pro Series
The 98 custom was so popular that they decided to modify it further and make it even better. So they came up with the pro version of the same marker. The Tippmann 98 Custom Pro comes in a variety of different modifications such as:
- The Tippmann 98 Custom Pro With ACT (Anti Chop Technology)
- The Tippmann 98 Custom Pro With E-Grip
- The Tippmann 98 Custom Pro With Digital Camo
The Tippmann 98 Custom Pro is in the $160 range, a slight increase then its little brother. The marker is fully upgradeable, and is very easy to clean and maintain. If you were smitten by the 98 custom, then this one will bowl you over.
There are many more models from Tippmann that are equally effective, such as the Tippmann X7, which is undeniably the most customizable marker on the planet. Just remember before you decide to actually go and buy a Tippmann paintball gun, that you rent one, or try someone else's first.
