How I know that Tippmann Made Good on the TiPX

I've come to the conclusion that clearly Tippmann has managed to make good on its early stumbles with the TPX...

How have I come to this conclusion, you may ask?

Because you just can't find anyone selling them dirt cheap anymore!! Before the Tru-Feeds came out, you could grab a TPX for, on average, $150 used. Nowadays, you can barely find any for sale to begin with, and the ones that are, sellers just won't budge below maybe $180!!

Not saying it's a bad thing (well, bad for me at this moment because I'm looking for a cheap one), but to me it's certainly indicative of a turnaround from the early days of the product.

I know someone getting rid of one Rogue!
The price is right in your range, but it seems someone screwed it all up.

Someone went along and removed the rail, the fingergrooves and part of the triggerguard!! I think the vandal may have done a few things inside too but it seeeems to work ok.

If you didn't like it all smoothed out, you could get a new body for $50, but then it wouldn't fit in the leather holster...

Speaking as the vandal in this case, I had a feeling this pistol would be moving along...
I will talk to him tomorrow if you want me to check for you!!


EDIT: to add to the topic. What people are seeing in these pistols now is what I saw in the handmade prototypes back in early 09. Consistency, quality, SUPPORT. A better pistol could be made, but my almost 30 years of this say it isn't required in terms of play. I could play as well with another pistol maybe, but without changing it from a 12gram 68cal into something electronic or magic with no gas, never better. It's Plenty Gun For The Job.


I HEREBY OFFICIALLY DUB IT: THE 1911 OF PAINTBALL PISTOLS!

Definitely interested Rob, shoot me a PM when you get the chance. Almost had a new one for $180 shipped on eBay but played it like a rookie and got sniped at the last second!

That nelspot never needs lube, shoots 2,000 ball per second, never needs reloaded, doesn't require an air source and when the paintball hits somebody the result is the same as if Chuck Norris round house kicked them.
He nick named the gun Reggie.

I know! I had already done so before posting this lol... Starting to think I may just pony up for an OD green one, if Quickshot has any.

The Zetamags definitely increased the desirability of the TiPX. I got one just to try the extended mags and I'm really enjoying it. Good luck.

High prices are good for sellers like me though! I sold a bone stock one with a remote adapter and spring kit for 225$.
