Pistol play scenario
Posted 08 March 2013 - 12:02 AM
first thing i would recommend, bring a normal marker as well, pistol play is well and good, but it is not for even a small fraction of everyone during an entire 2 day scenario event full of fully geared players.
apparantly regulated, which is a big plus
has ability for remote line ( something i may recommend at scenario, 12 gram changing on tipx is not exactly fun or cost effective)
12 gram changing involves unscrewing front of marker, popping out old, inserting new, re screwing, and pulling trigger to puncture new co2
only holds 7 balls
in my personal experience (with 3 different tipx markers) fps takes a dive during rapid fire.
more expensive, which may or may not be important to you.
tippmann barrel threading (a5 i beleive)
holds 10+ balls
available rifle kit allows it to run hopper, bottomline, and cocker threaded barrels (or a mix, ie 10 round w/ tank and barrel etc)
10 round tubes and harness comparable to magazine cost
rifle kit allows you to play at less of a disadvantage, more like having a 98c, if you dont already have something similar.
12g changing even worse then tipx
slower to reload (personal)
less air efficient then tipx
my verdict, the tipx is hands down, far and away the PISTOL i would use, the bt-sa17 offers some interesting versatility but it is not the better of the two pistols
if you want the versatility the bt sa17 provides, as well as its pricepoint you should go http://www.ansgear.com/Smart_Parts_SP1_Paintball_Gun_Black_p/spsp1paintballgunblack.htm
if you want the pistol experience you should go tipx
note to above, this is all because you dont want a Tiberius i sold the tiberius i received, and had bad experiences with it from the get go, but tiberius had amazing customer support, and during ll5 the tiberius tech probably spent 4 hours rebuilding that gun a dozen times with all new orings and parts etc. i got a lemon, but their customer service was amazing.

With the right harness and load plan, you can play any scenario.

it may be a bit heavier but from my experiences its quite accurate.
if you get the rifle kit its basically two markers in one.
you can use it as a main gun when you need to or strip it down to a pistol when you need to.
