The TMC does not disappoint. With one of the most durable constructions in the industry and great accuracy, this paintball marker gun was made for winners.

This is the latest member of the Tippmann marker gun family for paintball enthusiasts.

That said, it has stirred quite some excitement among paintball enthusiasts.

When it comes to Tippmann’s products, you can be sure they will combine the best features together to give you a gameplay experience that can hardly be matched anywhere else. The TMC does not disappoint.

With one of the most durable constructions in the industry and great accuracy, this paintball marker gun was made for winners. So let’s find out a little more about what makes this marker gun tick.

It’s a Durable Gun

This marker gun is the gold standard for durability. By definition, marker guns are meant to be durable. However, we have seen guns that just didn’t live up to the hype countless times. You can imagine the sigh of relief we breathe out when we find something that actually does what it’s supposed to do and lasts as long as it’s supposed to.

The body of the Tippmann TMC MAGFED paintball marker gun is made from only the very highest quality material and was designed and built to withstand the harshest of conditions. But it doesn’t just end there. The grip on this marker is one of the most comfortable I’ve ever come across. Using the gun and holding it is pretty easy.

 The gun can also handle intense gameplay. You can roll over, crawl through rough terrain, fall, and get back up and your marker gun will be right there with you with not even a single mark to show for its travails.

It has Top-Notch Performance

If you aren’t wowed by the durability of the TMC marker gun then you’ll absolutely be floored by its performance. As with any product, the performance of a marker gun matters a lot. Here it’s not like a coffee maker that makes coffee non-stop; it’s a lot more than that.

Paintball is a sport that allows you to play like they play in the military without having to deal with the casualties. As a result, there is a lot of passion surrounding it and it is highly competitive. Ask any paintball fanatic what matters most to them when they go into a matchup and they’ll tell you it’s the shooting performance of their marker gun. The minds behind the design of the Tippmann TMC MAGFED paintball marker gun knew this and they took all the measures to ensure their gun performed beyond expectations.

Tippmann TMC MAGFED Paintball Marker Magazines - 2 Pack

The trigger itself is a perfect size, giving you a smooth shooting experience that is perfect for beginners and experts alike. The gun comes with two magazines so you don’t have to keep reloading when you’re in the heat of the moment. The rubber grip on the gun also makes it extremely easy to hold.

But perhaps the best performance feature on this gun is the accuracy. You might have never held a paintball gun before in your life and you’ll still feel like a pro shooting this one. On the other hand, you might be a pro and you’ll still appreciate just how easy it is to hit targets many feet away.

Features MAGFED and Hopper Options

When you buy a paintball marker gun, you want it to have a good capacity for paintballs. A single magazine on the TMC can hold up to 19 paintballs. Seeing as there are 2 magazines that means you get 38 paintballs at a go. Now, I don’t know about you, but I can do a lot of damage to my enemies with 38 paintballs before I have to reload.

The magazines on this paintball marker are also very robust, in the same spirit of durability as the other parts of the gun. You won’t find any cheap plastic used here. They will easily withstand any rough conditions including rough handling.

The best part of it all, however, is the clamping on the hopper feed neck. You can easily attach any kind of hopper to it. Hoppers allow you to have access to more paintballs but generally only work for certain playing styles and needs. In general, I really love the fact that you get the two options: you can either go commando with the magazines or give yourself more room for wasted shots with the hopper.

It is extremely easy to use

I’ve already mentioned this before, but I was so taken back that I just had to mention it again. This gun is very easy to use. With enough time you’ll get so used to it hitting moving targets at a distance with good accuracy will be a breeze. The rubber on the handle makes it very easy to hold the marker and aim at various targets. Additionally, the trigger is just the perfect size to accommodate small fingers as well as large clumsy ones.

It is easy to maintain

A marker will only last long if it is properly cleaned. It’s not just about longevity, however. Keeping your marker gun clean also ensure it is always performing at its peak and has good accuracy. The Tippmann is one of those guns where the maintenance required is next to none, just so that the only headache you need to have is how you’re going to hit your targets. That said, make sure you keep it lubricated and clean it after use every time. That alone is enough to keep it in tip-top shape.

It is easily upgradeable

When you’re buying a paintball marker, you want one that you can easily upgrade with a variety of options. The Tippmann TMC is very easily upgradeable, allowing you to keep using the gun you have mastered instead of having to invest in a new one every time.

FINAL THOUGHTS

Customer Reviews and Scores

The number one reason customers loved this paintball marker was the dual option for either the hopper feed or the magazine feed. Many customers listed this as the reason why they bought it with some even calling it a “gorgeous beast of a gun”.

The product had a score of 4.3 stars out of a possible 5 stars from 48 reviewers with 71% of these reviewers giving it the full 5 stars.

While most of the reviews were positive, some customers complained about the carbon dioxide tank getting loose frequently. I only saw a few isolated complaints, however, so I don’t think this is a widespread problem.

All-in-all, it is a beautiful and effective gun and I highly recommend it.


4.5/5
