Tippman GBBR

Post by Sprout » Fri May 15, 2015 9:21 am

All players,
If you intend on bringing a Tippman GBBR, be prepared for an extensive chrono review. Since this rifle can easily be adjusted on the field, it will need to be verified that it can not exceed the 366 fps or 1.55 joules. I would recommend anyone bringing this rifle also bring a backup. Since the Tippman has not gone through the standard testing for fps regulation, it will be closely monitored. Please let the chrono staff know when you bring a Tippman to chrono.

Will this extensive chrono process be necessary if a tourney lock is used? It locks the upper and lower to make it so the velocity cannot be adjusted mid game.

On the initial one brought in, Yes. That way we get a fool knowledge of what we are looking at especially since they can be C02 powered OR HPA. However, the Tourney lock will definitely not hurt in speeding up the process. Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause. Our priority is for the safety of the players and the more we know, the better we can help ensure that. Kevin and his crew are Top Notch so they should be able to keep it moving pretty fast.

If you have a tournament locking body pin http://www.evike.com/products/53546/ and regulator tournament lock these will be accepted.

The Tippmanns run off a straight HPA tank without any secondary regulator so the Tourney Lock is the only piece necessary. Other than that, not a problem at all, I just dont want to show and not be able to run it because of something small. Thanks

So all we need is the tournament lock pin?

I dont really see any other options for a tournament lock. The air sources are just a standard paintball tank at 800psi. The tournament lock just keeps you from opening the receiver to adjust it with a tool. If they require something else they will let us know.

NOTE that I am NOT game staff this year and I am just forwarding the following information posted by this year's Chrono Marshall on Facebook in regards to this matter.

If you are using those Tippmann Airsoft M4 GBBRs then you need a locking body pin as describe above in this here thread. If you are also using it with a adjustable regulator with your external set up then you also need a tournament lock for your regulator. You DO NOT need the additional regulator tournament lock if you are running the gun on 12g CO2 capsules or a external gas or HPA rig with a fixed NONADJUSTABLE regulator or tank.

Please be sure to bring your entire rig or setup and state or show the chorno crew at the chorno station what your set up is. Please be upfront about your set up as HONESTY will get you and those waiting in line behind you through the chrono process faster and smoother. Yes that chrono line on Friday afternoon will seem shorter and move faster if people are prepared and bring with them to the chrono station all that is required to operate their guns fully and are completely upfront and honest about their set up.

You are correct. If you are running a tank and regualtor that could be used for either a Tippman or any other HPA, the regulator on the tank will need to be locked down. For a open/close only valve, there will not be a requirement for a tournament lock. The Tippmans will be required to have a tournament locking pin. These can be purchased directly from Tippman since Evike is out of stock.

The body pins will be required for all OLCMSS events. There is no way to effectively zip tie the upper and lower receivers. They are available from Evike
