I own one, and I love it. +1 on the idea of a Mech only version. I tested mine with a battery for a few days, and promptly removed it. I have used it as a mech marker for an entire season. The only reason I'm getting rid of it is that my new team has a relationship with a different company.

Can anyone comment more on the trigger once adjusted?

I really want to pick one of these up as an all purpose marker. I would more than likely spend most of my time shooting it in mechanical mode, but I would also play tournaments with it. I read in several reviews that the trigger is either way too stiff, or way too bouncy and the marker runs away. Is there any middle ground here?

If this marker an do what is advertised, and performs as a reliable mechanical, and performance oriented electro marker, then I want one. But if the board and trigger bounce are bad enough to keep it from being a decent performing electro, then I will shop elsewhere.

XKE, if you want a typical electro type trigger and handling, you are best to shop elsewhere. I don't "Walk" the trigger, nor do I take part in that type of play, so it is perfect for me.

For anyone else wanting the same, there are markers that excel at that game, and your money is better spent there. For anyone who likes a mech marker, this one is hard to beat.

I was really looking for something that I can take to a psp event if need be, but will spend most of its life kicking around in the woods.

This marker looks like it COULD have filled that void, but tippman came up short in a few departments

I think that you have to look at the marker in a different light. In PSP mode, the Crossover would do fine, as the electronics take over. The only time you will have an issue keeping up is in true semi-auto only play. Tippmann knows their core customers quite well, and they have been happy with it.

All of that being said, if I were going to play PSP, a Tippmann would NOT be my marker of choice. I don't think that PSP players were their target market.

If it shoots 12.5 without running away, and doesnt break paint, I would have no issue using it in a psp event.

Ill probably wind up picking one up and giving it a go first hand before passing any judgement.

It'll shoot 12.5 with ramping all day as long as you feed it
