Well, depends on your particular stance of the semantics of the term "mag fed" but if we're talking vertical, removable magazine in the grip, there are only two (TPX/TiPX and T8/8.1), and compared to most pistols they're actually pretty new.

But pistols started with a horizontal rock-and-cock style tube feed, like the PGP and Nelspot 007. Eventually when semi-auto platforms became reliable enough for widespread use, you had the horizontal springfeed, like what's on the Zeus, Delta 68, T68, PT Extreme, Squall, Sydarm, etc, etc, etc... These can all still be considered "mag fed", just the magazine is just non-detachable and needs to be refilled while still on the gun. But paintball seems to adopt the stance that if it's not a removable box mag, it's not a magazine.

Correction: there are only two .68 mag-fed pistols. They're also the KT Eraser and Chaser, and a few RAP4/RAM pistols. These, however, are in .43.
There's also the Crossman 3357, but that's not quite mag-fed.

Would you count the old Eagle 68?

How do you think the FXR when used with a TPX will compare to milsig mk3? I'm looking to bye a mag fed and both of these seem to be in my price range.

What's the point of the fxr? 350 will get you a t9.1 that does the same thing. I don't see the point. Plus it's gotta be heavy... I guess they're marketing to guys who just want to spend money for no real reason?

Some people (myself included) prefer the TiPX to the T8.1. This also seems to have more room on the rails than the T9.

I have also noticed there are a lot more T8 t8.1 and t9 for sale, and almost everybody is keeping there TipX.

I like to be able to shoulder a weapon, and this kit allows you to that, so it may or may not be something I would look at

If you have a T8.1 yea it probably makes more sense to just get a T9.1, but if you have a Tipx this is the least expensive option to get a shoulderable mag fed marker with a longer barrel, and with the zetamags you can have the same ammo capacity as the guys with mag fed rifles.
And from the reviews I seen and the VICE videos on youtube everyone says it's a lot lighter than it looks even though it's mostly metal construction

I suppose it makes sense if you already have the TipX, but if not... $200 or so for the marker, plus another $350 for a body kit? Granted you still have the benefit of being able to switch back and forth, but for $550 you can snag a brand new Phenom as well as a Tacamo kit and box o' mags - and then customize the bejaysus out of it to make it look however you want.

The difference is, the TiPX w/ FxR can switch from rifle to pistol. X7 can't do that. It also can't shoot First Strikes. There's also the Engler Sarge kit, a little cheaper version of this. It's only $175 for the kit.




Oh, and has anyone tried a scope with that buttstock? Most guns I can't see crap with a mask and buttstock on, but that it looks like it's mounted a little higher.
