    I recently bought a tippmann m4 and was looking to upgrade its accuracy. I was looking around but I couldn't get a definitive answer on how to upgrade it. I saw a couple of home made fixes but I kinda want to get something that's more official. I wanted to know which parts were proprietary to the gun. Also I heard that some barrels didn't work that great with it so I was wondering what barrels would be the best to get.

    There's really no official upgrades to the accuracy end of a Tippmann it's more of a diy sort of thing. You can do a TDC (top dead center) mod which will increase the accuracy quite a bit. As for proprietary parts I'm not sure on every part but I know the upper and outer barrel are proprietary. But for inner barrels I can't help you as I don't know anything about them.

    No problem buddy. 3 of the 6 or 8 people on my team all have Tippmann's myself included. I'm still trying to learn more about them and have read that there's guys hitting 250 feet accurately with them.

    I don't need crazy long accuracy as the average engagement distances at my field are 150 feet I just want something that's a bit more consistent than what they have now

    Oh I gotcha. The TDC mod will be perfect for that.

    The TDC is a very good hopup design IMO. My KC 02 has one.

    The bucking definitely is not proprietary. And the design uses AEG barrels so that's a plus.

    Interesting. My KC 02 has a proprietary bucking and barrel, I'll probably get the 3d printed hopup chamber so I can use VSR buckings and AEG barrels.

    Yeah the Tippmann is really weird. The hop up is actually milled into the upper receiver so it's impossible to replace it with anything aftermarket.

    Inreccomend tdc mod for hopup. Better inner barrel is a must and a recoil spacer and honestly will be a monster on field . And I reccomend switching out the rail system but that's cosmetic

    I can confirm that information. I can hit man sized targets up to around 250 feet with my set up. Tippmans love heavy bbs. I run .28s currently but I reccomend .3s. As long as you have your hopup situated. With a tdc mod and a really nice inner barrel with heavy bbs. You will have no problem. Get a good hopup rubber good inner barrel and heavy bbs.
