Any chance they'll sell it without the internally-routed regulator at a lower price so you can afford to get a decent reg and bottom-line setup for it?

Speaking of - remember how many aftermarket HPRs used to be for sale, even like 10 years ago? Go looking for them now, and you'll be amazed. Apparently stock regs are good enough across the board that only the really good aftermarket regs are still left for sale separate from a marker.

I'd like to argue that it's not the place of any paintball marker manufacturer to be:

A) Worried about protecting the resale value of their customers who wish to resell
B) Competing in price point against the used market

Both seem like fool's errands...but maybe that's just me.

The crossover looks nice and has a few cool features but I don't get why people would buy one over a mini? Price point even after the drop still favors the mini. To preface this statement I own a 98, a C3 Pump, and several minis also.

I got a Crossover new last year, Didn't pay $429, even with the additional CP barrel. Enjoyed it. Sold it local.

Lack of Cocker threads killed it for me, but like GOG and the eNMEy, I understand why they don't swtich to Cocker threads. BUT I don't want to buy more barrels.

Well to be honest I never liked the look and feel of the crossover. I'm not a tippmann hater, I have a phenom and it was a great first marker. But tippmanns attempt at a speedball marker was wierd. The trigger isn't that great, and the lack of barrels is a big thing. Also, there are not very many aftermarket upgrades for it either. Barrel is pretty much it. another thing that put me off was the huge space between the trigger guard and grip frame. In the size comparison above, you can see it's slightly bigger than an axe in terms of the spacing there.

This is the reason I'm buying an Axe.

its a5/x7 threaded...they have tons of barrels.

if you are a tippmann fan/supporter/whatever you have a few of those barrels laying around, thats who the marker is aimed at. it isnt supposed to convince people to get the crossover instead of a dm13. its aimed at people who have been using tippmanns for years and want a speedball marker, and they want to support a company that they like.

marking the price down was smart, it should have been cheaper to start. im still not interested though.

It's light, efficient, and smooth. (No, not DM/Droid smooth) Doesn't sound like any Tippmann I've owned before. I bought it for the Mech mode. SAY WHAT!?! Yeah, I enjoy the mechanical mode more than the electronic mode. It's got all the firing modes for E-mode anyway, plus eyes. I'm not sure if people are hating it just because it's a Tippmann or what. (NOT SAYING IT'S THE SAME AS AN AXE) People weren't huge on the Axe either when it came out, but now they have a following and multiple wins in the Axe camp. Just saying.

The only things I don't like: Packaging - Just a cardboard box? Ouch
ASA - I like the macroless design, but the ASA and my tank setup make the gun a little longer than I prefer. You can run your own reg and ASA though, so you aren't locked in.
Barrel - 12in .689 + huge bore. I get it, big bore because people will shoot crap paint through it. Also wish it was Cocker threads, but I get why it isn't.

Did Tippmann price it a little high? Maybe
Does Tippmann have a lot of competition in that range? Absolutely

I've since shot the one I sold local. It now has a techt bolt. If you want a nice mech gun, buy one.
