Bullpup Tippmann Model 98 Tacamo D-Mag Kit with PB Electropneumatic Kit?

Howdy ya'll, I have a Psycho Ballistics Tippmann Model 98 Classic E-Pneumatic Kit and was wondering if anyone knows if I can it fit into a Tacamo d-Mag conversion body kit. If it is possible I'm thinking of trying to make an Electropneumatic bullpup Model 98 that uses d-mags. It looks like the tacamo Kit uses a different grip, but my plan is to cut a model 98 body to where it'll fit around a barrel and be secured in place(and extending all the necessary wires and hoses back to the rear solenoid) so I don't see it being a problem. Does the tacamo Kit take traditional model 98 style end caps? Does it take traditional model 98 rear bolts? Anyone got any input? Sorry if this post is a but jumbled- I've got a bit of a cold and the meds are making me a bit scattered in my writing.

Yes it takes the same endcaps....same bolt

What do you mean cut a body to where it will fit around a barrel?

I plan to cut a model 98 body so that I can put the 98 Electropneumatic Kit's electronic components in the same grip frame, but moved forward in front of the mag well while extending the necessary hose back to operate the solenoid (or is it a ram? It's the thing that punches the valve and makes paintballs happen). Not sure if that made sense, but it's late.

There won't be anything left of the 98 Body if you do the magfed, it is replaced entirely.

Are you thinking of converting it into a bullpup design?

Bingo, but not using the tacamo trigger group(a butt stock'll probably go in that area)and, using a modified 98 trigger group that will sit forward of the magazine, will run an Electropneumatic Kit.

Ignore the dots and look at the illustration

I gotcha now. What I would suggest for that if possible is putting the pneumatics in your buttstock and just running the trigger switch wires to the front so that the hose lengths to and from the ram stay short. This should also leave you plenty of room for mounting the battery in the marker.

Question: Are there any sort of air pressure related advantages to keeping hoses shorter?
