Tipman AR type 22

Any feedback from members on this carbine?

I have 2 of them and love them. Wrote a review back in 2019:

https://www.mdshooters.com/showthrea...85#post5530985

Largely, they have been reliable and very accurate. I have my highest AQT score of 246 (though not at an event) with one of my Tippmanns and they have scored well in 200yd Rimfire KD as well. Definitely capable of a perfect score if the shooter (meaning me) was.

A friend of mine loved the Tippmann so much, he bought one too and scored Rifleman with it at AGC a couple weeks ago.

I did have light strikes with one of them and tracked it down (after several other attempts) to the buffer tube not being screwed in enough from the factory. Tested both of them yesterday at BRGC and now working fine.

I do have one short 10-round magazine that is failure prone and the feed ramp can get gummy with wax, lead, and carbon leading to failures to feed if you don't clean it periodically (and easily) with a toothbrush. The long 10-round magazines can easily be converted to 25 round out of state.

Compared with CMMG conversions (which I also use and like), I prefer the last round bolt hold open (and that it doesn't close shut when you drop the mag) and it is more accurate. Cheaper than a dedicated CMMG upper as well.

Happy to answer any questions.

The furniture and receiver looks very similar to their airsoft co2/hpa ARs. Perhaps they were cut from the same block. If it's anything similar to the airsoft version, expect milspec furniture and handguards to easily drop in.

Personally, I would probably just stick with the airsoft version for backyard drills and plinking. Fun switch enabled, fairly accurate (many mods, aftermarket parts, and optimizations available), runs on air, kicks just like a 22lr, and ammo is dirt cheap.

Not familiar with their airguns (apart from paintball, which is a different operating entity even if with the same family ownership). But I would definitely put these guns in the same category as my high end 10/22s rather than as a plinker. The trigger is the only thing holding it back...and it is still highly capable.

How would you compare the Tippman to the Smith &Wesson MP 15-22 ?

I compared them side by side at at the LGS and the Tippman felt more solid than the 15-22. Ended up taking the Tippman home.

My son got one back in December and loves it. Some of the parts are proprietary, and can't be switched out (bcg, charging handle, dust cover), but the trigger and furniture are, so he changed to a Hogue grip and stock, but likes the stock trigger. He loves it to plink with, but wanted something with more punch, so he's building a 5.56 AR rifle now. It definitely is more sturdy feeling than the M&P.

I have a S&W 15-22 as well and have shot the heck out of it - it is one of my favorite rifles for new shooters to show them how great an AR is.

However, I give the nod to the Tippmann - it is more accurate, more functionally similar to an AR-style carbine (dust cover, functional forward assist, aluminum upper and lower, including top-rail), and I like the magazines better (they also have a "dust cover", an integrated load assist button, and I prefer a mag with screws rather than a bonded/sonic welded polymer).

Both are high quality rifles in my experience though.

My buddy has a tippman 22 ar pistol and loves it. Says customer service is top notch. I'll try to get him to post his experience.
