Will you experience this level of action Oct. 18? You’ll have to play with us and see for yourself!

Hey hot dogs! We released the official Half-Life 2: Unforeseen Consequences announcement video late last week – a magfed scenario campaign with a Half-Life touch. Watch the video for all the details and visit Hustle Paintball Presents.com to learn more, but in case you want to get the 411 here? Read below to find out what it’s truly all about.

First thing’s first: pre-register right now! This will allow us to plan effectively, so the sooner you guys sign up? The better the scenario will be.

Secondly: if you don’t have a magfed marker, go to Hustle Paintball Presents.com and look at the list Ethan posted that details the magfed markers that are recommended for the event. We’re planning to have a magfed scenario at least once a year, so if this is something you think you are going to enjoy at least once a year, believe us: you need a magfed gun. Check it out, buy it, have fun with us Oct. 18.

Would you rather not shell out the money for a magfed marker? That’s okay! You can bring your regular marker to play – but it must be converted. The best way to do this? Buy a feedneck adapter along with a set of 10-round tubes directly from us. If you’re feeling really adventurous? Buy a bandolier too!

So don’t be a Wallace Breen – be a Gordon Freeman! Join us Oct. 18 and have a blast in this annual extravaganza.

First Look at the Tippmann Mag Fed Conversion Kit

We got to check out two exciting new Tippmann products at the 2014 Paintball Extravaganza. The first was Tippmann’s latest mag fed marker, the Tippmann TCR. The other was the Tippmann 98 Custom Mag Fed Conversion Kit which turns the classic Model 98 Custom into a mag fed marker with a 7, 12, or 20 ball magazine capacity. Check out our video where Kevin explains the adapter’s features.

Other manufacturers have made off-brand Tippmann conversion kits that are similar. This one is the real deal—guaranteed to be 100% compatible with all 98 custom, US Army, and TPN markers that utilize the 98 quick-release feed elbow. The conversion kit will ship with two 7-ball Tru-Feed magazines. Tru-feed 12-ball extended magazines and the 20-round Zetamag will also fit the adapter.

You don’t need to make any permanent marker modifications. The Tippmann conversion kit is designed to use the same fasteners as the standard Tippmann 98 quick release feed elbow. It takes seconds to install and it’s easy to switch back and forth between hopper and magazine fed paintball.

The Tru-Feed magazines are identical to the ones that come with the Tippmann TPS Pistol. They utalize a low tension spring system that allows you to use a wider variety of paint compared to other magazines. We’ve had good experience with Tru-Feed magazines. Lower tension springs are less likely to damage paint on hot and humid days.

This is an exciting product for anyone who wants to get in on the mag fed craze without spending a fortune on a new marker. Just about everyone has a Tippmann Model 98—or at least knows someone who owns one. It will definitely get more people into magazine fed paintball.

The Tippmann mag fed conversion kit will be on sale in May for under $50. Be use to check out our website when the time comes to order yours.

Spotlight on the New Tippmann TCR

Magfed play is on the rise here in North America. Opting to play with a magazine of two dozen balls rather than a hopper filled with a few hundred, magfed play challenges players to make every shot count. Perfect for the player that prefers their paintball slow yet strategic rather than fast and frenzied, quality magfed play demands top-quality magfed markers. Thus, that’s where Tippmann comes in, as they have just announced their newest magfed market, the TCR (Tactical Combat Rifle).
