Do you think that tippmann would get mad if I made a cyclone feed for my 98c, it would be homemade, easy just a low power electric engine and I bet you I could buy the turbine. Or I just might be able to modife a A-5 one to fit the 98c.
98c:
J&J Ceramic Barrel 14"
Dye Sticky Grip
32 Degrees Flame Drop Forward
One Strip Hex nut

Soon To Come:
Double Trigger

I'm not sure it would be a violation if you even modified a real cyclone to work on a M-98. They may try to go after you if it was on a non-Tippmann, but I doubt they would care on one of their own. But at the same time why turn a M98 into an A-5? If you want an A-5, sell your M-98 and buy one since it will likely be less headache & less money.
A-5: 12" Ceramic, Egrip/WAS/Duel, HPA, MP5 sliding stock
SMG-68: 12" Ceramic
68-Specials(8): 12"&14" Ceramic, 12V Revy *** 1 Tip-n-Strip, 1 Blue, 1 FA w/Qloader
SL-68: 14" Ceramic
SMG-60 Ext. Line

I wouldnt use a motor though, I would just reroute the gas like on the A-5.

Just my two cents.

Uhm you dont infringe a patent by just building one for yourself. You just cant profit off it.

Have at it.

well u could just buy a egg or revvy instead of using a electic motor, finding a cyclone would be harder than making it fit (duct tape holds the universe together)

actually i think they only have a patent on the cyclone system for the A-5 (how it works on blow-back air), if you hand craft one that works on a different system instead of blow-back air i dont think they can do anything about it.

If someone comes up wit a better feeder system(similiar to the A5's) fer the 98c's, jus make sure it doesnt suck up too much gas like the A5's.

the A-5 cyclone doesnt run on gas from the tank, it runs on the air that the bolt produces when it moves back into the "cocked" position. its called blowback air.

You can do what you want.  They only patenized it so other companies wouldnt do it.  You could make your own,  your not selling them.  Even if you did sell it to some one I wouldnt think you got in trouble.

Sounds like a good idea to me and Tippmann wouldnt really get mad, now the only way Tippmann would trip if you stole the idea of the Cyclone feeder, they could careless bout the hopper and remember someone else already created an A5 hopper that holds more than the original.

So go fer it and when you finally have one done....show us a pic and explain how you did it.

Do not steal....the government hates competition!
