Today we received a new product announcement from Tippmann. They are releasing a Straight Line Barrel that fits the A5 and X7 models. The barrel is to be released on June 20, 2008. Here is the information received from Tippmann today regarding this new product.
"Tippmann Sports is excited to launch a new, special edition StraightLine barrel for woodsball that was designed to complement the look of Tippmann X7 and A-5 markers. The new, 16” barrel was created through a partnership with HammerHead®, a longtime leader in paintball barrel design, and offers unmatched quality and performance characteristics.
The special edition StraightLine barrel will be sold in a complete kit featuring three sizers, a carrying case and lithium grease. It will be available in mid-June 2008 at a retail price of $149. This new barrel is set to debut at Oklahoma D-Day, where The Hellions from CPX and the SPC team from Glasgow Scotland are scheduled use the new barrel in play. We have a limited allocation for the first run of these barrels and we are now accepting orders for shipments to begin on June 20th."
We will update our Tippmann paintball gun upgrades page on the website. We are interested in what comments you can post on this new barrel for the Tippmann X7 and Tippmann A5 paintball guns.
