so wait if theres no mods to the a-5 necessary you just take the trigger
part off and re-mount it up front on the new halves? sounds pretty tight
to me. if i only had a a-5 and 350 dollars, i'd be in for sure

Looks very cool but seems extremely pricey at $320 for what you get and
there's no mention of when they will ship except to say "soon." According to
the promo materials you get a APE Rampage board, some nuts and bolts, a
rear butt plate the the two plastic halves.

Looks good, just pretty expensive IMHO

Part of the expense is that I am not a large company...and right now cannot buy in the sort of bulk that big companies can.

    Actually...you get the APE board, solenoid, Sear pin, safety, all of which is basically equal to or better than an E-grip. that is $100 right there...you get a buttstock (even though it is actually part of the marker) which is $60, you get a shroud allowing you to mount rails and accessories which is another $60-100, so if you add all of that up...you are getting close to $300, and with this you get the tactical advantages that a bullpup gives...faster reaction time, you can get closer to baracades, quicker target aquisition, quicker shouldering, etc etc.

I didn't realize you are marketing these mods. Nor did I realize the other
parts. And yes, you're right since it's "cottage industry" modification it will
cost more due to the manufacturing costs.

You've got yourself a really good product Jefangel. I hope you do well with
ehm and yes, I'll probably buy one from you. You know me...hard to resist
a great mod.

Oklahoma D-Day is the best thing for paintball since nelspot.  It causes all these senior tinkerer's to get their game on, and pump out products that make me crap my pants.

EDIT-  Considering both the body of the A-5 and the hopper are behind your right handgrip, does it balance well?  It doesn't look like it would.

This project has taken a few years to put together, but alot of the modeling work has taken place in the last 6 months. We have gone through 3 prototypes to get to the final design that we are at now.

The trigger works like any other electronic trigger. we will be using the APE rampage board..and they are customizing it for us, so it will be entirely waterproof.

Well, you can run remote, or on the bottom of the front grip there is an option to mount a drop froward and you can mount the tank there.


Thank you for the questions and keep them coming!
