They sell used items as new. Purchased a new marker for over 500.00 and got home and it was missing a bolt. Went back to the store and got a new bolt from the owner. Got home again and tried to fire the gun something major was wrong. He tells me its my problem he will not exchange the gun. So I have to deal with Tippman to get my "Brand New" marker fixed. I know tippman products and this was not a new gun. Worst experience ever.

They are selling used items a new. Just paid over 500. for a new paintball marker and get home and it is missing parts from the box then i went to store and he gave me a missing bolt. Get home and the gun does not shoot. This is not a new gun. Tippman does not produce guns missing parts. The owner tells me its my problem to solve. Worst experience ever.

After reading several technical articles on regulators and expansion chambers I was forced to decide to settle for one or the other. Both allow co2 to expand and the reg seemed to be more controllable. I decided on the reg and set out to find one locally as my time was limited and one ordered online would not have gotten here on time. I searched online for the store closest to my home and the Paintball Store was the one.
I entered the store, I inquired, the sales person pointed out regulator inside the glass display case. Upon closer inpection I determined that I didnt want that reg and prepared to leave. Thats when the questions started... what kind of marker , what kind of gas,I was using co2,oh no I was told, you dont want a reg you want an expansion chamber...hmm odd, I thought I came for a regulator.
Regretably I listened to the sales pitch from their ""expert"" staff.... it worked. I am new to the sport, I try to educate myself as much as possible but info online can be limited and or vague. I was talked into the expansion chamber. Then they didnt have the correct length braided line to make the conversion, so was talked into going with the macro line parts to complete the conversion. When I got home, got online, punched in the name of the reg to read a review..nothing... generic....crap. I went ahead and looked up the macro line parts. This angered me.... for the price of ONE!!!!! fitting I could have gotten the whole kit online (both fittings and the line).
Next day, back to the paintball store. Different sales person, apparently the owner. I wanted to return the items but was not allowed to. Read the fine print on the receipt... and on the sign behind the tv with junk hanging in front of it, no refund, just store credit. Not having a choice but to get something at the store I decided to upgrade to compressed air, got the cheapest tank they had for just over 100 bucks, got home and found it online for about 56 bucks. I cant win
