Tippmann TiPX .68 Caliber Paintball Pistol Unboxing and Review
Today I’m gonna do a quick unboxing and review of the Tippman TiPX pistol. All right guys, I’m gonna start off from the outside. This does come with a nice, hard shell case to keep this gun protected. Whether it’s banging around in your gear bag, or you threw it in the bed of your truck. It’s got a nice hard shell case on here. It’s gonna keep this gun protected.
What Does it Come With?
Let’s open it up. All right, on the inside it’s gonna come with a barrel blocking device. It’s gonna go actually inside the barrel of the pistol, and an elastic strap that’ll secure around the back. That way no accidents happen. It does come with a quick little lube and maintenance kit inside here as well. If you need to do any work, grease any parts, it’s all in this bag and included with it. It does come with a full-on owner’s manual for any maintenance or troubleshooting. Any questions, you should look in this manual. It’ll fill you in. Then lastly, it does come, this is just an extra mag. It does come with two magazines. One is already inside of the gun. Then, this is your second one.
Tippmann TiPX .68 Caliber Paintball Pistol
All right guys, on to the pistol itself. This has two different air source options. In the front, you just pull the cover out and any twelve gram C02 cartridge will go in there. And on the first trigger pull, that will puncture the CO2. You’ll be on your way to play roughly about 25 to 30 shots. Out of the twelve gram up front will get you that many shots, about 25 to 30 out of a twelve gram. The second option that we have here, this gun can actually be run on a remote line. You have to install the remote line which we have here. It’s just a metal piece that threads into the back of the gun and then you can have a constant air source. Remote line to a tank on your back, and you can power the pistol that way.
All right guys, there is a mag release right on the side. This is a mag fed gun. Push the button, and the magazine comes out. These are 7 Tru-Ball magazines by Tippman. They work great. I can kind of show you real quick how it happens. When you go to load this magazine, you pull the tab all the way down to the bottom ’till it clicks and locks in place. All your paintballs, seven of them, go into the magazine. As soon as you insert it into the gun itself, this spring will automatically pop up. Then you’ll begin feeding. You can hear the spring. You are good to go, you are all set.
Next thing I’m gonna go over is a big feature that the pistol itself, is it is A5 barrel threaded. Actually, you can take this little small stock barrel that has A5 threads and put in, basically whatever barrel that you’d like, as long as it fits inside of the plastic shroud up front. Screw that back in. As I mentioned earlier, a lot of people just run it with the twelve grams. When you put your twelve gram in the front then screw the cap back on, all you have to do is point the gun towards the ground, pull the trigger one time and that’ll puncture the CO2 for you, and you’ll be on your way to playing.
Next thing I’m gonna mention about this pistol is the namesake, and very well-known people who shoot these. I call it the TipX, some people call it the T-I-P-X. Some people call it just the T-P-X. Whatever you wanna call it, this is a great pistol to have. I would say that a lot of people that I see out at the paintball fields actually can dual-wield these. So they have two pistols, one on each hand. Speaking of that topic, David The Reaper Justin shoots these. He’s very well known.
David “The Reaper” Justin
Hey guys, it’s Reaper. So as you guys know, I only use pistols. I’ve been playing since 2008 and that’s all I use is the pistols. This one’s a customized one that I got from GI Sports. It’s the T-P-X. This has a fake suppressor on it, but the barrel inside is actually a rifle. This one’s set up to actually do first-strike rounds, which is actually really cool. If you guys are interested in getting into pistols, you can buy them brand new. You can buy them aftermarket, you can buy ’em all over the place.
For me, it’s not just a side-arm. For me, this is my actual primary weapon. I carry two of these here. I’m wearing my summer wear. I usually have a vest with a bunch of things on it. So during the summer I wear this. These are quick if I’m out in the field, and I’m playing and I’m shooting, I get a dump pouch behind me, then I can quickly just reload with these guys. And just keep on going. So, that’s it. Pistols are great, I use only twelve grams. I don’t use the cables. I get about 20 shots, that’s about two of these clips.
That’s it. Get into pistols, start using ’em. If you want any more information about me, just visit me here on Instagram. If you just type David Justin into Google, I’m number one on Google search.
