For its price it is an avearge, overall no. It is a semi auto mechanical marker with a stock. For the same amount of money you could get a bt4, azodin kaos, or alpha black.
For the price, you are really just getting an alpha black with a stock and shroud for $50 dollars more. I would just buy the alpha black with fully automatic Egrip, which the salvo does not have, and save $10.
No, the stock bolt is just the Cure 1 bolt.
A used stock Tippman is worth around $80-$100
The tactical edition has a 4 point butt stock and an 11 inch barrel and, M4- style barrel shroud. Otherwise it has no stock and a stock 8 inch Tippmann barrel.
Its simply the 98 with a shroud and stock. For a beginner marker it is very durable marker. but compared to most $200 and $300 dollar guns it is not "good"
The stock barrel is 11 inches. The receiver is nearly 12 and 1/2 inches long (including butt-cap). the butt-stock is also about 11 inches fully extended. That makes the gun 34-38 inches long, depending on stock lenght.
"paintball" is not a company, therefore is not publicly traded.
They are internally exactly the same. It is weather you like the M16 look or not. Also If you get the tactical, you should buy a remote line so you can use the stock.
Disassemble the gun, and replace the back cap with the stock or take it to a paintball store, and ask them to.
At a certain level of paintball markers, the accuracy of the gun itself becomes irrelevant. As soon as you have a clean marker, with an good valve and regulator, the accuracy becomes completely dependent on the paint and barrel match quality. Basically any marker over $500 or so will all have the same stock accuracy.
The Mokal Aura was a marker series made in 2011 with a stock weight of 1.6 pounds. Other guns could be milled down and made lighter than this, but the Aura is the lightest sold.
