The TCR is based on Tippmann’s popular TiPX pistol. Its magazine well is compatible with First Strike rounds and has mags available in 7, 12, and 20(Zetamag) rounds. A quick release system is specifically designed for fast magazine changes. Also included is a removable clamping feedneck that may be used to convert the marker to hopper/loader feed.
Markers capable of using CO2 cartridges have been held back by the time it takes to swap them out when under fire, the TCR has a lightning fast cam system for on the fly changes. This should help keep you in the game without having to retreat to a safe location. It is also compatible with a remote tank through the hideable remote line adaptor.
