Should the TPX come in colors?
I'm back from my recent 'Mine Ride of Massive Unpleasantness' and looking forward to settling back into my belt and playing some paintball!

After a chance to check out this beauty yesterday, I think Tippmann would be missing the boat if they don't make colors and sell aftermarket halves!!! That's not a paintjob, the actual body is green. In person it's awesome! I guess they can dye the body any color they like, I've even seen a pink one!

Team colors, tactical choices like olive or sand, I just think this is something that tippmann should offer!
Nice change!

We need to make our wishes known on this:drool:. I also think people like me who want to customize the grip and mod this or that would be a lot more common, if folks knew they could just buy an extra shell and work on that one. They would sell alot of them I'm sure!

I think that it would be impossible to guess what color to do, unless they did them all. Personally, I could care less about color, I have my basic black TPX and that's fine. What I'd rather see is body kits that allow for different looks (think machine pistol, SMG, etc). If they were going to do TPX bodies, I'd like to see replaceable grip panels incorporated. That would allow for wood, pearl, or whatever to be used by people going for different looks. I'd also like to see a modified barrel shroud that allows for larger throated barrels, and extended (10-12 round) magazines.

KISS; Black works.

I do agree that allowing panels for grips would be nice.

You guys have hit on part of why I'm for them. I can't see any other way than this for us to end up being able to buy body halves. Other than this I'd think they wouldn't generally make them for sale. You'd have a black gun with a serial number and then colored bodies(even black) that could be modded at will.

It would be a nice idea! To be able to get another color then m my friend. I just my got TPX back from Tippmann and they re-did about 9 different upgrades according to this inventory tech sheet. I wanted to sell it before but now this thing shoots incredible. Just wish on the tech sheet it said changed color to sand or limited edition tiger stripe(like the de50)

Different colors would be cool, maybe different shapes that just bolt on to give it a different look, but thats wishful thinking. So do you guys think Tippmann is going to do something with the TPX to compete with the T9 rifles?

I think they are going with the X7 Phenom. I test fired one at HS and it was a VERY nice marker if you're into that sort of thing. Me, I'll stick with pistols!Rob

I was thinking something magazine fed, none of this hopper non-sense!

Well, to me, if it's going to be bigger than a pistol, it better have MORE SHOTS than a pistol. Otherwise you put up with a bigger gun for no gain in accuracy or firepower.

I'd like a body that keeps the darn thing from chopping untill then it sits in the box some where in my closet.

But extended mags would be cool if they did a smg/machine pistol body like they have available for the Tac8's.
