Tippmann Gryphon Video
It was posted in the other Gryphon thread, but figured most folks would miss the video in there, so I'm taking it upon myself to highlight it.
It's good to be the boss.

Red - Black
It's .68 caliber - it is crap. The future is .50 calibre.
I don't know - I kinda like it. it looks like a prolite that has all internal plumbing and linkages. For the price - if it has the tippmann valve train and warranty - you really can't loose.
I would have KILLED to have this marker in 1988 when I started playing ball - and the 98 of paintball that play once or twice a year in the woods and shoot paint from Walmart will love it too.

Is it made in the US?
I see one issue right away. The pins that hold the sear in place come under great strain. The aluminum bodies on the m98 oblong and make the pins wiggle in 2 years or less in the case of markers made in the past 3-4 years. The result is the ever famous, 'rapid fire' because the sear cannot hold the hammer back when the pins wiggle.
I foresee this being a major issue sooner with a composite body. Depending on the number of times new players will be using this, it may hold up until they're ready to upgrade or not...I guess we'll see.

Um, am I the only one noticing the lack of a clamshell? Is this thing bolt out back?
If so, awesome. I like just about everything about it for what it is.

Looks decent enough!
Now new players don't have to worry about what that those hoses are for. :P
