Tippmann Project Salvo Review!
The Tippmann Project Salvo has a stock which is foldable and collapsible, and it has six positions to choose from.
This paintball gun has a shroud which is styled after an A.R. 15 rifle. The entire gun is styled around the A.R. 15 including the magazine.
Side Bar: The A.R. 15 was an excellent gun for the military, and it was the result of major research and design from the military in the 1950's. Shortly thereafter the M-16 was developed from this model.
As will all Tippmann markers, it is well constructed and very reliable.
One of the best features of this A.R. 15 styled paintball gun is that there are quite a few upgrades available.
The US Project Salvo can accommodate most barrels which are up to one inch (diameter), and they must be at least eight inches in length.
Also, you can set your Tippmann Project Salvo paintball gun up with an eGrip™. The side benefit is that it will accept Tippmann 98 Custom Platinum upgrades like the Flatline barrel, Cyclone Feed, and Response Trigger.
It's easy to operate and control during game situations, which means you'll find sighting your opponents and scoping them is excellent.
The Tippmann Project Salvo is constructed of all aluminum and die-cast. The paintball receiver is durable. The barrel is 11 inches, and it's quick threaded and anodized making this Tippmann U.S. Army Project Salvo an excellent paintball gun for recreational paintball, Scenario, and Woodsball.
Paintball players who have purchased this marker really enjoy the design.
For example the handle is made of rubber, and there is a detachable tool-holder which you can us to put small tools in such as your own all wrench, which you'll need to assemble and disassemble the paintball gun.
The Tippmann Project Salvo is quite light. It only weighs about 5 pounds. Not light compared to the Invert Mini which is only 2 pounds give or take and ounce, but this is a paintball gun that will work even when you get buried in mud, and plow through brush, and get dunked once in while.
Cons of The Project Salvo:
One complaint is that the stock is constructed of plastic, and some players experience a bit of wobble. But it's nothing. Many players don't use the stock because it gets in the way when you are walking, and if you are ambushed and pull up quickly, you'll misfire.
The other small issue with this marker is that it is made in China. But for a gun made in China it's as good as it gets. This is why the price is only around $150 for the base model. And at that price it's hard to resist. But it does function well, and Tippmann puts their name behind it, and that says a lot.
Overall this marker has really good range, it's as accurate as can be (which is very important).
The Tippmann Project Salvo is ideal for intermediate and beginner players, but advanced players will really enjoy it with a couple of upgrades. It's a very good buy and highly recommended. Everyone who owns this paintball doesn't just like it, they love it.
