Tippmann makes many great paintball markers. Their products are very dependable and durable. Many use the joke..."you can use it as a intrenching tool" when talking about the 98 Custom, Tippmanns mid-grade marker. I had one for my first marker and it never faulted on me for the 2 years I used it. The accuracy isn't that great when using the stock barrel, but after upgraded the marker has great accuracy for the money spent on the gun.
