Let us know what its like!

just tell us how it is, and i wanna see it in a vid without all the fancy music like the tippmann one. Very Happy
Nickodemus

It feels just as solid as an A-5 or a 98. You instantly know it's a Tippmann with how the parts are set up on it. Same allen screws, push pins and 98 wrap around grip, and ASA mount hardware... AS 17.4oz propane tank balances the weight of it in the handgrip perfectly. I shot it for the first time tonight. It was already dark when I got home. You do see a flame come out the barrel. After priming it would only fire every other pump with bad lock time from the igniter. I adjusted the regulator and it got better. This thing is loud. POP! I shot it about 30-50 times in 10 min and the barrel didn't get hot.
I decided to field strip it to replace the factory lube with some good stuff, and polish & Militec it. I am going to have to finish that tomorrow. I replaced the AA battery (fix that lock time). Getting the barrel on and off is a pain and took some time tonight. The bolt is in the barrel and you have to line it up through it's cut out in the barrel and frame for an oprod to connect it to the cocking arm. I'll try to get some photos tomorrow.

To me that doesnt sound like a very good gun.
sinisterNorth

^You're joking, right?

Awesome. I really want to get my hands on one sometime. Sounds/looks like a freaking beast. Will you be getting a vid up soon?

Also, not to hijack, is Tippmann planning to make any upgrades for the C3?
Nickodemus

I plan to get a video up this morning or this afternoon, I have some things I need to take care of first. It is a good marker, I tend to give critical reviews. I'm glad I'm relubing it. The factory oil is dark and gritty, like it has machining dust in it.

To answer your qeustion SinisterNorth, I will quote directly off the Owner's manual. Page 22, FAQ #12:
What are the plans for a semi automatic? We are planning many variations and upgrades to the C3 Marker but no final time schedule has been developed.

JUst give it a while i guess. I cant wait to see this video. And Im sure you will figure out a way to quiet it down a little.
Nickodemus

It does vent the exhaust in your face when you cycle it. Here are some photos for a size comparison:


Here is Amber shooting her C-3:

C-3 target practice - I paced of 45 feet in my yard to see how well the C-3 did on a target, then grabed the A-5:

You posted the same video link twice, the one where she is shooting it.
TriggerHappy1

Cant wait to see the vids! Monday-School-Library-Directed study. Too bad I wont be able to hear it.

Looks pretty small too compared to your A-5.
g36 monkey

yeah...your gonna have to change that second putfile link cuz this comp is way too slow to download anf fodder is on the other one.

fixed it thanks
tigman250

it really dosen't seem that much louder on vid. the first few shots with the A-5 were a bit off but the second string shure as hell hit the bottle LOL great vid Nick!
Nickodemus

Thanks. It isn't much louder, I guess it just sounded that way at night. It seems to be a shorter report.
TriggerHappy1

Does the exhaust that vents out smell at all? I loooooove the smell that comes out of propane powered fork lifts. I used to follow that thing around sniffing it when I worked in the factory, it just smells good. Butane nail-guns smell good too. Very Happy
Nickodemus

You would like the smell of the exhaust. It is the same. Neutral

Must have.

I remember you posting about the forklift in the initial C-3 topic.

Nice vid, i had to watch the a-5 part repeatedly before it finally loaded and ran smoothly. Pretty sweet.
Justice

That's pretty quiet.
