Tippmann :: Introduces Highly-Customizable X7 Marker

by on Nov.23, 2006, under Articles, Markers, News, Press Releases

Tippmann Sports has introduced a revolutionary new product, which is being called “the most customizable paintball marker ever manufactured.” The new marker is the very first product Tippmann has developed in conjunction with Special Ops Paintball. The standard, out-of-the-box configuration of the Tippmann X-7 includes an AR-15 styled magazine with built-in storage compartment, adjustable rear site, modular shroud and a receiver with military-spec Picatinny rails. The X7 is also field strippable and was designed around the proven inline bolt design incorporated into other Tippmann models.

Tippmann X7

“The X7 features a magnesium receiver, which offers the durability of aluminum, but is 20 percent lighter,” said Dennis Tippmann, Jr., senior vice president of research and development for Tippmann Sports. “It also incorporates an enhanced Cyclone Feed System that can feed more than 20 balls-per-second and a new low profile, offset hopper, which provides a clear sightline down the top of the marker. Plus, the X7 is the first marker to feature an air-through stock compatible system, which makes it easy to move the gas line to the back of the marker for better maneuverability and a more realistic appearance.”

“We’re excited about all of the first-time innovations the X7 incorporates, but for most players, it’s really the marker’s customization that will get their immediate attention,” said Patrick Ehren, vice president of sales and marketing for Tippmann Sports. “Through our partnership with S.O., the X7 is being launched in conjunction with more than 30 different integrated mods making it easy to give the marker thousands of different looks. With the X7, players will be able to enjoy the ultimate woodsball experience knowing that their markers have a totally unique appearance and, more importantly, are customized to fit their specific needs.”

The mods to be introduced with the Tippmann X-7 include a full array of performance stocks, magazines, shrouds and sights, created exclusively for the new marker. Other performance upgrades to be available include an integrated Flatline Barrel System option and a new E-Grip with external Select Fire mode selection.

“In many respects, this was a dream assignment for our team,” said Greg Bishop, general manager for Special Ops Paintball. “It was fun to finally be involved in the design of a marker from the very beginning. And, everyone at Special Ops is excited to have worked with Tippmann to bring this groundbreaking new product to market. There’s no question that that X7 offers exactly what today’s serious woodsball players have been waiting for a high performance, dependable and customizable marker that will clearly set them apart in the field.”

Tippmann X7

To help players gain a better understanding of the many available looks of the X7, Tippmann will be adding a new X7 builder to its Web site. The builder will allow consumers to view all available performance upgrades and mods and select their favorite options. A completely customized X7 marker will then be created on-screen using the information provided. Finally, the MSRP of the marker built will be provided along with a list of Tippmann dealers so players can select from all nearby retailers.

“We felt it was important for players to see first-hand just how customizable the X7 really is,” Ehren added. “Offering our consumers an opportunity to build their own marker online really gets them involved in the process and allows us to provide them exactly what they’re looking for. There aren’t a lot of products available-in any industry-that offer this level of personalization.”

The X7 from Tippmann Sports and Special Ops Paintball is being manufactured at Tippmann’s Fort Wayne, Ind. headquarters and will be available for retail shipment in late November 2006. The basic marker will carry an MSRP of $329. Prices for the customized markers will vary based on the upgrades and modifications selected.

For additional details regarding the X7 or the recently formed alliance between Tippmann Sports and Special Ops Paintball, please call 1-800-533-4831 or visit

RAP4 :: Walther P99 Paintball Pistol

by on Nov.06, 2006, under Articles, Markers

Real Action Paintball is proud to announce the release of the Walther P99 Paintball Pistol. The P99 is a 1 to 1 scale replica of the world famous compact handgun, the Walther P99.

RAP4 P99 Paintball Pistol (black)

The Walther P99 features a sleek body with all the original markings and insignias of the real P99, and uses 12g disposable CO2 cylinders that fit completely inside the handgrip—each one can power up to 50 shots!

The Walther P99 Paintball Pistol does not eject shell casings—it doesn’t need them—which keeps your cost and cleanup time to a minimum. Up to 10 .43 caliber paintballs are loaded into a magazine, and the magazine is inserted into the handgrip just like on a real handgun. Also like the real pistol, the Walther P99 Paintball Pistol stops shooting when it runs out of paintballs. The muzzle velocity is adjustable between 250fps and 350fps with an effective range of 20m (65ft) and maximum range of 50m (160ft).

The slide and internal mechanisms are made of hardened metal alloy and steel to withstand harsh use in extreme conditions. The barrel is made of light-weight aluminum, which helps keep the overall weight down. The frame is made of rugged construction that can withstand being dropped and survive rough use.

The P99 Paintball Pistol comes in the same four colors of its real counterpart: black, olive green, blue and silver.
