As a marksmanship instructor I picked up this Tippman to accompany another paintball gun (Tippmann 98) that I've owned for years, to be used during a Youth Run & Gun Kamp I run for teaching marksmanship fundamentals and safety.
Right out the box this device worked flawlessly and is quite impressive. By no means will this be a review in the technical aspect, but rather a review on how it fits my specific needs in a "non-paintball competition" environment.
Price: Compared to local big box stores in my area the price was reasonable and on point, I believe I actually saved a few dollars even with shipping vs. picking it up locally.
Durability: Although it's still new and hasn't been put thru it's paces, being the owner of a 17 year old Tippmann 98 my gut feelings told me this updated version would last just as long. So far it has not let me down:-) It's a pretty big hit with participants in our Youth Run & Gun camp because of its military aesthetical value. It's pretty user friendly and quite adaptable to the various users who grab it off the table to "test-out" on their marksmanship skills test.
Looks: As briefly mentioned earlier, it's a good looking paintball gun:-) The O.D. green version I purchased really stands out and even the young girls who enroll in our Kamp are quick to snatch it up:-) It's resemblance of an M4 carbine is quite impressive as are the accessories that come with it for tailoring it to fit numerous body types and shapes.
Operational: Although I did not run this thru my chrono (mainly because these guns are only being used to engage paper targets vs. shooting at other students) muzzle velocity appears to be on par with my older Tippman. The adjustable buttstock and forward rail grip are repositionable to give my students the most stable custom fit platform to assist them in mastering their marksmanship fundamentals. Cleaning it after use is an extremely easy process and the included sights are quite reliable for being a mid-range paintball gun.
Components: Unlike my older Tippman, there are a LOT more plastic parts on this newer Cronus version. With that said, thus far nothing has broken - mind you this gun is being handled by many students, accessories coming on and off, switched and changed with each user and bounced around thru the skills test portion of the course. Although plastic, these "aesthetical" accessories are holding up pretty good. No stress cracks or broken mounts as of yet. Although the hopper is all plastic and basically a large bubble that sits on top of the gun - surprisingly its holding up to the stress of so many different users:-)
My only ding (half a star) I wish it was a bit larger and heavier. BUT, for the application in which I'm using it - it really is perfect for little hands and it's weight is light enough that students are not fatigued by carrying it thru the marksmanship course/test.
I'm extremely impressed with this Tippmann - as I expected to be - and suspect it will give many years of faithful service as my original Tippmann 98. I'm already planning to purchase a few more to accommodate Kamp/participant growth.
Great gun. Added parts on it to make it look sick. Added a storage mag to hold allen keys and screw drivers. BiPod. APEX2 barrel to shoot around corners with quad rail shroud. Red dot sight. Never had a problem. I got tired of using the rental. Check the pic!
I love my Cronus! Built like a Tippmann A5 with just a little less power. Great deal, not to mention I ordered it with two-day shipping and it arrived like it was 1 day shipping. I also ordered a 20" barrel and threw on my extra M4 accessories and made a bad gun! Worth the buy!
Have been using this marker for 1 year now and have not had any problems really accurate and can upgrade in to pretty much anything your mind can think of I run this with my tipx which is also amazing, nothing better than tippmann
Came in with what looks like vice grip marks on it, plus the very top of the nozzle had two dents in it, not sure what happened. It holds air and seems to function just fine. But kinda annoying to get damaged stuff
Not made in the USA as claimed,otherwise good tank,no damage,gauge works and holds air.
