There's endless upgrades for Tippmanns. What are you wanting to do with it? Preformance enhancing upgrades? Looks? Both? As far as preformance upgrades, there's the bolt, the power tube, the hammer, and an expansion chamber. That's about it. There's not many preformance upgrades. There may be more I'm forgetting. As far as looks, if you want it, you can probably get it.

Look into ACT (anti-chop) and that's it. Tippmanns are money pits.

well tippmann will argue that theres a whole slue of performance upgrades but really the majority of stuff out there does little to nothing and is defiantly not worth the price, as far as the marker itself get a J&J barrel, they are $30 and one of the best values in paintball, after that a nice forcefeed hopper and then switch to HPA, if you want more performance after that, its time for a new marker, the HPA and hopper can go onto the new marker and the J&J is only a $30 hit but will help a little with resale value

barrel will help with accuracy but good paint will do more than a barrel can, as for the ball going further, yes and no, yes because technically the flatline and apex barrels will get the ball to go further, but also no because at those extended distances the ball will just bounce off whatever it hits, basically since everyone is shooting the same speed everyone has the same range (also why there are no snipers in paintball)

HPA stands for High Pressure Air, im saying you should switch to air instead of CO2

Quality paint playes a huge roll in determining the accuracy/inaccuracy of your gun.

To increase range you would have to look into a flatline barrel. After weighing the pros and cons a flatline is ultimately a waste of money.

HPA is short for High Pressure Air. It replaces your CO2 bottle with a 3000 or 4500 PSI compressed air bottle and regulator. It's more consistent than CO2 and usually cheaper in the long run.
