Tippmann FT-12

We are using about 60 FT-12s at the moment as rental guns for customers.
Have had about 8 break on the top of the hinge section. Anyone else having the same issues?

My field has 12 of them since they came out and they're still going strong. We love how easy they are to maintain/repair.

Does Tippman cover the hinge breaks?

Yeah - So far we are being looked after on that front from the local distributor.
Just asking around to see if it is an ongoing issue. May be more to do with something we are doing if it is not a common flaw.

Not found many people so may have a look about how we might be causing the problem.

how often are you opening them up? We don't clean or maintain ours unless it has a problem. It's a tippman; it shoots until it's broken. then you open it up and find out what happened.
