Re: FT12 Officially coming to Retail

I didn't realize you could not buy these yet.
I've seen a few at my local field, guess they were rentals...

If I recall correctly, Tippmann made these specifically for fields to rent out. It's biggest highlight was how easy it is to clean without ruining the internals (i.e. some fields just dunk the full marker in soap water). It was announced at around the same time as the Crossover.

The FT-12 is sure to be a favorite of those seeking an ultra-dependable marker with out of the box performance.

it's your basic marker.

Re: FT12 Officially coming to Retail

Im just wondering what the fields will do to keep players from opening up the gun.

thats a good question, but I think most renters WILL NOT want to open them
just in case, I also dont think you can open it when pressurized (but i could be wrong here)

Re: FT12 Officially coming to Retail

renters are not usually intrigued by a marker's mechanics, like us nutballs, they just want to point and shoot!

Re: FT12 Officially coming to Retail

I hope they fix the lock on them... We've had 3 rentals literally blow up when the lock came loose (mechanical error or the customer unscrewing the lock). Still never found all the parts. The power tube just sits on an oring. If the gun is opened while pressurized, everything is shot out from inside. We've also had 5 ASA's break off completely, thankfully noone has ever been harmed, but one customer went home after his rental blew up in his face.

Not exactly the safest marker I've seen by Tippmann..
