Tippmann 98, very durable and easy to fix.
Tippmann offers a number of different paintball guns with an expensive price tag. Tippman's most expensive paintball gun is currently the X7 Phenom Assault Edition that is priced at four hundred and forty nine dollars.
Pretty much all Tippman accessories are universal on all Tippman Models. If it, it will state clearly on the box.
Sadly not that much. To the point where it may not even be worth it. Tippmann have a poor resale value, and the prolite are no different.
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 Tippman x7 Phenom is the best of all of them. It is the only Tippmann with a spool valve, and can switch from auto with battery, to semi without. All of the other markers are just the 98 with a cyclone feed and a different outer shell.
The Tippman X7 is better quality faster rate of fire and is just an all around better gun.
A used stock Tippman is worth around $80-$100
standard .68 caliber
