well ive been thinking and there have been a few things i would like to see on tippmann markers that they just dont do.

1: On the Tippmann A5 i have only been able to find one kind of aftermarket grip for it(Made by UMS) while its nice i would rather have some nice silicone grips for it. or anything really my and gets sore after a while due to it being hard plastic.

2: Bring the ebolt back and make one for us A5 users. i would LOVE to have one and would pay just about abything to have one.

3:aluminum rather then plastic powertubes. im willing to acarry the extra 3oz for a quality powertube.

1) You mean foregrip? If so there at least a half dozen out there. Try looking.

2) Ebolt doesn't sell half as well as the e-grip. It's hard to see a $250 upgrade when you can have a completely electronic tippmann for $200 right now. It won't come back and shouldn't. 10 people wanting it back is not good business reason to bring it back.

3) Aluminum powertubes were in the first Model 98's, I still have one collecting dust because I don't want to throw it away. Made it echo even a much louder ping. And besides it's much faster/cheaper to pump out plastic 'tubes.


So I think there's reasons why they don't do said things.

How often do your powertubes break?

Why don't you wear gloves?  The a-5 has an amazing grip that fits the hand very well... Isn't it based on the mp5 grip?

he (i think) was referring to the actual frame's grip. seeing as how the frame IS the grip, i think it would be nifty to make aftermarkte frames with removeable grips.

Somebody already makes an aftermarket 45 grip fram for the A-5.

The e-bolt is expensive and doesn't sell very well, but you can still find them and I know at least one A-5 has been modified to take it.

I'd agree with the power tube problem, I'd like that and a stainless steel valve body that wouldn't strip like the aluminium ones. However, you can still buy them as aftermarket acessories.

No, that's too expensive. Just put in SS helicoils and you'll be just as good.

Aftermarket 45 gripframe, JJ made one and look how well those sold! Yeah exactly.

They just started making a chrome pod tank, i'm not sure if its just chrome covered or not but heres the link Chrome Pod Pack.

 

This is in response to the first post about alumnimum rather than plastic pods.

Why get an ebolt for 250 when you can get an Ion for less?  It's a waste.

ebolt for 250 instead of ion? simple. by getting the ebolt, you are keeping the investment you have already made. you are adding on to already existing upgrades, which you probably have if your at the stage where you want to get the ebolt.
