Tippmann FT-12 Flip-Top Rental Marker

Tippmann has released several new products at this week's Paintball Extravaganza. One of their new markers is the FT-12 Flip-Top Rental Marker. The FT-12 is designed with field operations in mind. It's new flip-top design makes repairs a breeze.


The FT-12 features a metal body with a matte finish.


The two halves of the FT-12 are held together by a nut in the front of the marker. To disassemble the marker, you simply remove the barrel, depress a button, and unscrew the nut.


Once the nut is removed, the entire top of the marker can be lifted away, exposing the internals of the marker.


The overall design of the internals is similar to other Tippmann models.


The trigger assembly is similar to the A5. A hinged wire clip helps keep the assembly together.


The powertube assembly has been redesigned.


The feedneck features a dovetail design and uses a lever for retention.


One nice design touch is that the ball detent can be removed without fully disassembling the gun. Sliding the foregrip forward exposes the ball detent.

O wonder if they will let you upgrade it with the Phenom, or better yet, the crossover package.

Seems like a solid design for field operators to enjoy, quicker turnaround time on repairs. I am looking forward to getting one in to kick around.

The much faster barrel threads and quick access detent make this, to me, a better option than the BT Slice for field ops.

The valve will be pressurized and not pose any danger to anyone.

Going to guess these won't be available to the general public, at least in this exact form. They say "RENTAL" on the side and have bright yellow grips - it's built in theft protection, at least a little.
