It's a great idea but RAP4 has not had a good history with hard goods or costumer service. I will say that Engler and Scenario arms should be watched on this matter and I'm going to see what people say about it before I but it.

So it looks like Tacamo is coming out with something.  i saw this on RAP4...

"The Tacamo Magazine Conversion Kits will soon be available for:
- Tippmann® 98® - Tippmann® A5®
- Tippmann® X7® - Tippmann® Phenom®
- BT Paintball 4® - Valken SW-1®
- US Army Carver One® - US Army Project Salvo®
- US Army Alpha Black®

Now you can carry the marker you know and trust...with the brand-new functionality of using interchangeable magazines. When you absolutely need the firepower of a squad automatic weapon - to keep up with hopper-fed markers in all-out paint slinging - the Tacamo Magazine Conversion Kits also accept the 250 round RAP4 Box Magazine!
"

Here is the link with the rest of the info:

I think it is a good idea. I love my tpx. It is a great gun once you learn what kind of paintballs its shoots. Just make sure that you don't use really soft balls. The 8 round clips work great and I have the tru feeds to. I think the should make a 14 round mag. that would be just enough to make everyone happy. Plus it gives you that good call of duty 4 g18 with the extended mags look. lol. I know it sounds silly but I am going to end up buying another tpx so I can run around just with pistols. I am starting to love it more then my x7 with egrip which is also a lovely gun. If the did come out with a clip feed gun I would get it to. I love my TIPP's.

I doubt Tippmann will make it. Keep an eye out on modders forums.

Tac-8's have extended mag's available.

I own a Tpx and I really love it. However, I would really like tippmann to come out with a ten ball mag. I know they just came out with the 7 shot true feed.  all they would have to do to make the 10 round is make the mag longer, keep it a straight feed like the 7 shot. It would be awesome

You shouldn't bump old posts if you don't have anything useful to contribute.

I think that would be awesome, it would make it a lot more realistic. Think about an X7 with no hopper on the side!

And the ability to use the hopper to fight your way in and out of a sitution, but able to pull the hopper off and use the mag when hiding or sniping.

^^^ Because the 8-10 extra rounds could make all the difference.

Just curious. Why switch from a mag to a hopper with the flick of a switch? That would mean that both are on the marker at the time, and in that case why not just use the hopper and have a fake mag like a lot of milsim markers today?

i think it was called the 68 special. it was magazine fed, but not in the way that you are talking about.
