reliability of a tippmann in affordable cheap plastic, well let's hope they didn't make them too cheap that it loses its reliability...

The Raider and Tactical are die-cast aluminum.
Not sure about the Outkast but I'm pretty sure it's plastic.

do you only mean the internals? because the pictures make them look really plasticish, especially the clip on the tactical.

The bodies are aluminum, at least for those two guns.
And I'm sure the decorative clip on the Tactical is plastic, like on an X7 or TM15 or anything else.

The BT Omega looks just a plasticish as this rebranded one,it's definitely made of metal though.... The Raider really looks like a plastic bodied gun in those pics,but,looks to have quite a bit of potentienal....wonder if the Empire Spring feed fits it....hmmm

Woah! Rich Telford (JT was his FIRST sponsor) tells me that that Tatical M-4/M-16 looking gun is good enough to take on anyone on the field! (with the exception douchebags like me who have been playing for 30 years, and send kids with guns like these home crying)
If Rich Telford says that on Youtube, it's gotta be true!!
I gotta get me one!!!

Something tells me it's aluminum.
If it were possible/practical to make M98 clones out of plastic someone would have done it already. Even Valken's SM-1 thing has an aluminum body, as do the RAP-4 replacement mag-feed kits.

Good question about the spring-feed. The new feedneck design looks like it's mounted to the current BT-style rail-based system but uses two bolts, like a rip clip, instead of a spring-loaded locking tab to fix it in place. This will probably make it more durable and stable than a "normal" BT feedneck at the expense of being able to slide it off for cleaning. If the normal BT rail is still under there a spring-feed tube should fit no problem.

I still think they should make a 20 or 18 round spring-feed kit for the Omega/Tactical. Even if the tube were ridiculously long it would still be within the profile of the barrel or stock, depending on whether it were mounted forward or backwards.

I wonder if these markers have elliptical-shaped breach openings for FS rounds, like the SA-17 and Trracer...
