From what I was told by Tippmann, only a handful of these kits where released to market (no hard numbers, unfortunately) because of the difficult installation. The inside of the frame must be filed or milled to fit the ram at exactly the correct angle for it to properly trip the sear. IIRC original MSRP was between $300-$400 as well, which didn't help to generate a lot of demand.

Basically, theres a circuit board that controls the rate of fire (with something like 10-12 fire modes), an external LPR attached to the ASA provides the low pressure needed for the ram to operate, and when given the signal from the board, the ram fires quickly, trips the sear, and fires a paintball.

Here is a picture of the un-installed kit (I actually think I may have purchased it in a thread you started...) :




Oh, and... BUMP!

ah yes this does look familiar. just an old sear tripper kit. a few companies made them but Tippmann was the only company to do an electro/pneumatic setup to accomplish what the newer egrip setups did. Should find an old gilled model 98 and put it in there for the full nostalgia old school look.

free bump for a sweet piece of tech.

It actually only works with 98 Customs, as they have the punch-out panels and the slot in the bottom of the grip frame for the wires and hose to exit the frame. There would be extensive milling involved with fitting this kit into an M98.

Also, BUMP!

The marker itself is pending trade to thespawn078, keep your eyes out for a thread made for the rest of the parts.
