Tippmann A5 is way better
Alpha Percival Cyclone Can spin
The Tippmann Alpha Black is a decent gun. Easy to use, durable. but really, your paying for the looks. A 98 custom is nearly identical, and it can't compete with an X7.
No, It was not meant to anyways. The main Tippmann lines has the Tippmann 98 as their starter marker, the Tippmann A5 as their intermediate marker, and the X7/X7 Phenom as their top brand. The bravo one (alpha black in The United States) is simply a different looking Tippmann 98. The A-5 has the cyclone feed, and is much easier to take apart with a tombstone airline and push-pin disassembly.
the barrel, hopper, stock, and many others.
The tippmann 98 stock.
No, it is slightly different shaped.
Yes, all 98 threaded barrels fit: model 98 98 custom alpha black/ bravo one project salvo/ tango one carver one They will NOT fit: tippmann A5 Tippmann X7/ phenom TPX pistol tippmann prolite spyders or any other companies
Tippmann also makes the US Army Alpha series, so they are equal........ But the MR1 is not as widely respected at the Tippmanns are, most of that is due to the tough and durable nature of the Tippmann.
CO2 or HPA will work fine with it
Yes, they both use 98 threads.
yes, you can. You just have to find the right parts.
