Project Salvo, Best Overall Paintball Gun,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: U.S. Army Project Salvo .68 Caliber Paintball (Sports)
The Tippmann US Army Project Salvo is the best paintball gun I've ever had. Admittedly, it's the second gun I have, next to the Tippmann 98 Custom Pro.
I've taken this out to many woodsball games and this is a durable gun, and is definitely one of the "best bang for your buck" paintball guns out there. The Project Salvo however is set at a good price for a paintball gun at $150. It looks like an M4 and is super customizable. It has a "picatinny rail system" that lets you slide on just about anything you'd want onto a paintball gun. You can put lasers, red dot sights, cameras, grips, bipods, flashlights and even grenade launchers onto the Project Salvo using its easy picatinny rails.
I myself have added a Tactical MilSim Grip/Bipod onto my Project Salvo and a Cyclone Feeder. This gun is also EASY to maintain. It can be taken apart using the Allen keys/wrenches that come with the gun, and can be cleaned or updated without problems. The magazine/clip is also a neat tool. It doesn't work as a real magazine/clip, but serves as a storage compartment for your Allen keys/wrenches and some o-rings. This way you can fix your gun on the field if you need to (which has never been necessary for me).
This is gun is amazing and I seriously recommend it to new players (because of affordability and easy maintenance) and regulars (because of how authentic it looks and how powerful it is).
I did a review on this gun on my Youtube channel which is [...]
Hope this helps!

do you recommend / have any preferences as to which barrel you like better than the stock barrel? you say you've played with the custom 98 pro, have you used those barrels for this gun? I have an A-5 and this is/was going to be my back up gun. just wanted to see if you had any suggestions on a barrel.

How do you use the sights, isn't the hopper in the way?
