I always thought Tippmanns were rough on paint, but I've been pleasantly proven wrong. If you want true tournament handling of paint, get the DAM. Otherwise next best from what I've seen is tippmann.
Yeah, but you need to get a mag-fed conversion kit for 98/a5/US Army markers.
Or, just get the mag adapter for 98 series. Actually, that's where I'd start if I was the Op - only because getting into any mag-fed platform can be really pricy and he/she may not like it.

It has a quick-release cam lever that switches out 12 gram CO2's like nothing. It's probably the best design I've seen for 12 grams.
It also has the option for a Remote line into the stock - which is a pretty clean design. Yeah, the TCR is more expensive than the Standard TiPX, but it's maxxed out. It's what you would be looking at if you tried to max-out your TiPX (which would be a lot more money).
- It will be more accurate
- have more options
- and be a solid marker.
BTW, Mil-Sig has a lot of hype given to it's platform because of their accomplishments as a company in the mag-fed industry; however, I would steer clear of the M-17 for now, until they refine the platform a bit more.
It's biggest selling point was "mechanical full-auto" which Tippmann has long-since accomplished with it's R/T platform.
