Tippmann Tipx Questions

Ok PBN. Hoping you can help me on this.I have my Tipx and love it.

Now I want to get a rifled barrel for using first strikes. My idea is to kinda replicate the Hammerhead T8.1/9.1 Setups with a threaded front for a Suppressor or something like that. See link --> Hammerhead
Is this possible on a Tipx?

I cant seem to find a hammerhead barrel that will work with the Tipx series and allow enough room for any of my tips.I do know that Hammerhead makes a TPX/Tipx Barrel See here. But judging by the picture, it doesn't seem to have a threaded front.

As well. Are there any holsters out there that are of a hard plastic/polymer construction that can fit a Tipx? Holster Here <--- Something like that, only not for a real firearm.

Thanks guys!

You can put any barrel on a TPX so long the external diameter of the barrel is 7/8" or less. I believe RAP4 makes threaded barrels in both spiral and stright and most of the time the tips are threaded.

The hammerhead tpx barrel you linked does have a threaded front. That is a threaded cover to protect it. I had one when I had a tpx. I believe...don't hold me to it that the threads are compatible with some LAPCO fronts as well as some rap4 fronts...for suppressors/cages etc. I doubt you will find any type of polymer holster for the tpx...it's about the size of a desert eagle...have one of those too! Anyway...I had the Tippmann drop leg holster and it worked great. Easily adjustable...can be set up for left or right leg, holds 12g cartridges as well as an extra magazine.

I believe someone on one of the Tippmann OG forums was working on making some Keydex holsters but I dont think it ever went through.
