Excell, do you have a picture of your marker?  Does it use the A5 connector?

As previously stated, this is not expensive as these things go. I remember back in the day you could get an M-79 GL for the price of a normal paintball marker, and it was seperate. But that was long ago. I know I will be looking at this thing as I have silently wanted an underslung shotgun / GL for quite a while but refused to post the idea (sinc it wasn't new nor really my idea) in the idea section.

Great looking Mod!!

The shotgun is still being prototyped.  We are about 60 days behind schedule on these projects, but hope to be caught up for the holiday market.

The launchers are ready. But the markers (Scepter 870 Tactical Shotgun, Scepter "Windrunner" Sniper Rifle, Scepter UZI, and a couple of others....including our new Scepter "Blaster" are still being prototyped.  Our markers include many ground-breaking innovations, so they are taking a little more time to develop.

Is the grenade launcher capable of firing "shotgun" rounds. I assume so based on the canister design and similar products, but don't see any official mention or pictures that this is the case. Scepter, could you shed any light on this aspect?

Yes, the launchers can shoot "grapeshot" rounds.  You simply fill our sabot with up to 15 paintballs and cover them with a wad of paper. 

The launchers were developed for frag grenade rounds, however, and due to the low velocity of each shot (less than 200 fps) the grapeshot rounds are only good for close range targets...like hitting a tank as it comes around a corner.

Regarding prices:  This one made by Tippmann Ordnance, can be purchased for $695, if you would prefer it.

And I think it was mentioned before, Tippmann Ordnance and Tippmann Pnuematics are different companies. However, I do not know their origins or any familial or previous relation to each other.

More questions:

  • Are the frag grenade slugs designed to be fired mortar style with some lob / arch or still straight shot like traditional paintball rounds?
  • If used with "grapeshot", will the paintballs stay in place in the barrel as you run around?
  • For that matter, will the frage grenade stay inplace with normal movement?
  • And finally, the grapeshot is effective enough to cover a corner form an ambush position then? It will allow the paint to break against human targets in normal clothing from ... say 20 ft?
  • (edit) Not quite finally, And I assume the firing mechanism (trigger) is the button on the left side of the barrel / grip?
  • Now finally, and is the hose to the ASA flexible enough that it can be attached to a Drop Forward instead of the stock ASA?

I have a question about the sniper rifle you are making. Is it going to improved distance, or just like a milsim gun?

  • Are the frag grenade slugs designed to be fired mortar style with some lob / arch or still straight shot like traditional paintball rounds?

Yes, the frag grenades are for indirect fire against personnel.  The grenades can be precisely placed behind, or at the feet of players who may be bunkered or otherwise protected by normal fire.  The range is 70 yards.

  • If used with "grapeshot", will the paintballs stay in place in the barrel as you run around?

We give instructions on how to keep the pbs in the sabot, by basically covering the pbs with a wad of paper.  The sabot holds them in the barrel.

  • For that matter, will the frage grenade stay inplace with normal movement?

After making the grenade, you wrap a piece of paper around the center of the grenade, and then insert it into the sabot.  The grenade is then held tightly in the barrel, until launch.

  • And finally, the grapeshot is effective enough to cover a corner form an ambush position then? It will allow the paint to break against human targets in normal clothing from ... say 20 ft?

Grape-shot is not really for anti personnel.  It is best used as an anti tank ammunition.  You must get withing 20 yards though, for the best effect.

  • (edit) Not quite finally, And I assume the firing mechanism (trigger) is the button on the left side of the barrel / grip?

That is correct.  Our patent pending launcher includes a valve that is actuated by pressing the "button" on the side of the launcher.

  • Now finally, and is the hose to the ASA flexible enough that it can be attached to a Drop Forward instead of the stock ASA?

We manufacture the hose and the hose connectors.  The hose is a flexible PTFE hose with stainless braiding, and able to operate under 3000 psi.  It can be bent in a radius of 2".  It can connect to your marker's drop forward, as long as you can connect the airline connector to the drop forward.  The kit comes with a 13" section of braided airline.

Good questions!

Plentiful... The Scepter Windrunner is expected to yield 10" groupings at 150 feet.  Good enough? Did you see our sniper rifle on our website?  It was updated today.  More to come.

See the bottom right photo?  You'll have to be able to connect the airline to the double airline connector.

Grape-shot is not really for anti personnel.  It is best used as an anti tank ammunition.  You must get withing 20 yards though, for the best effect.

So as far as the grapeshot is concerned, due to the lower operating pressure to keep it safe, the paintballs will need to be fired against a fairly hard target. Hence anti-tank ammunition. Hmmm, still very interested.

And I couldn't tell from the pictures or your description, does your "airline connector" screw into the normal 1/8 NPT threading ? Or is it a tank adapter in itself?

Since I am a teacher I will likely wait for next summer to purchase, but this is the first paintball item since the A-5 came out that I have been really interested in. Now I just have to decide if my (MP)A-5 needs to be re-adjusted to more of a rifle instead of the submachine gun it is now.
