Hi from the UK -- Tippmann Elite S



Log in to see fewer ads
Hi All
I bought an Elite S (UK 12.5 inch barrel version) yesterdaay and ran 500 rounds with no issues apart from the magazine not fallilng freely when released.
Anyone else experienced the same issue?
They don't get stuck, just need a slight 'pull' to get them out of the mag well, rather than just dropping out.
Other than that minor issue, I love the rifle and can see it getting a lot of use in the future

My Micro Pistol does the same thing with magazines yours does. My Elite rifle however the magazines drop free.

When the upper isn't installed the magazines drop free easily. I noticed wear mark inside the mag well, just under the barrel on the front side of the upper. I think this may be where the mag is hanging up slightly. (maybe)

Since it doesn't really bother me I haven't played with it much to make it drop free. BTW, like the look of you rifle. The 12.5 inch barrel gives it a very balanced looks.

I had to look that rifle up. I must say I am surprised that you guys are allowed to own black rifles over there.

Welcome to RFC!

We can only have semi-auto in .22RF....and we have to shoot them in a very non-threatening and polite way
