Yes.

I've got teammates that do this, and I do it with the much heavier tiberius extended mags and they still hold firm

I love zetamags, although it takes some getting used to. As mentioned before good paint is key because loading is a bit rough at times with the tpx's, especially in game. Personally I prefer the tpx's stock.

Mine broke paint here and there the first few days out... definitely had a 'brake-in' period.

Tech T bolt helped a lot. Keep the stock springs - turn down the velocity back to normal fps. You will see an increase in efficiency/shots.

I haven't had a ball brake since the switch in bolt.

Other than that I'd grab a spare 'stock' A-5 or Phenom barrel from someone cheap to add 2" to the barrel length - a lot more accurate.

Ensure the 'breach' part of the barrel does not extend past the threads any more than the actual stock TPX barrel. There are some barrels out there that will fit/same threads where the barrel actually extends too far past threads and this causes the bolt to bash into it = bad un-needed wear + tear on the internals.

I like my tactical leg holster a lot too.

Zetamags (at least one) a must.

One things about the stock TiPX, IMO, is it definitely has a break in period. I try to shoot a case through a new one before I play with it. Good practice, Good times and good performance after that!

Did some work to my TIPX

Polished the internals.

Remove the fingergrooves.


Add some extra grip.


Did some trigger work but haven't taken any pictures.

But I don't know what I want to do with my front block and mag ejector want to make it bigger for faster ejecting.

The stock barrel is pretty accurate, but I really like the Lapco Bigshot in .687. It seems to shoot tighter patterns for me. It is not much good for longballing though.
