Checki this out.

Think SP will sue them over it? Looks alot like the SP-8.

these are all just look alikes of a firearm, they wouldnt have suit on anyone.

Funny thing is, the gun is more popular in the paintball crowd than the military :)

I wouldn't worry about SP sueing, since the thing tippmann is selling is an Airsoft gun, not a paintball gun.

It's modeled after the real XM-8 military rifle.

if i was in the millitary and some one handed me one of those i would probably end up laughing at them cause they look so toyish (if thats even a word) to me.

Brewtt 04-21-2006 10:47 PM

I'd take it over the M-16. ;)

Wonder if this means Tippmann is getting into the full size replica air soft line.

Meh, I'd rather have a G3A3 or a G36 myself, or the M4 maybe if I had to go domestic. Those things are just so dumb looking, It's wierd that they're so comfortable to hold though. Has anybody else noticed that these things have nowhere near the adaptability or accessory options of the tried and true m series rifle they're replacing? Seems like a waste of money to me. Anyhow, getting back on topic... they won't get sued by anybody except H&K, and I'd bet cause it's Tippman they probably bought the rights.

if i had a choice of weapons in any combat situation i would just take an ak 47 (for go sake u can rust the breach shut, kick it open and goo shoot it with no problems). a flir unit, and a glock model 22 .40cal pistol

Didnt a japanese company buy tippmann? If so why is every one surprised that they are moving into airsoft, its HUGE in japan!
