Wonder if the price point is staying the same?

Regardless, serious props to Tippmann for responding so quickly to the input they asked for. This is something I'd now seriously consider picking up, whereas before I had almost zero interest in the Crossover.

I already thought the Crossover was a good marker. It was a bit overpriced but certainly provides solid performance at the field. If they keep the price the same with these improvements then I think they will have a winner.

I'm kind of amused that the promotional photo shows the old vertical grip rather than the one Vegard shared with us. The main feature I would like to add to mine is the on/off asa but the one in the pictures looks like they added it on to the back of the existing asa.

Good job Tippmann. It's nice to see you're paying attention.

According to the online manual, it looks like the Cocker adapter is just that...an adapter. The stock barrel has a 0.692 back, and the barrel kit come with 0.688, 0.684 and 0.680 backs. That might not be so bad. If they are decent barrels, you wouldn't need another cocker barrel. At least they are including the option rather than re-tooling an entire production for those of us who are barrel prejudiced!

Awesome!

What's the difference between this new trigger and the previously released, updated trigger?

Will the upgrades be available separately for current Crossover owners?

Props for the quick response.

Vegard's looks like a ZR-1 foregrip. Is that showing how it could look better, or the one that needs to look better?

I believe Vegard is showing what he believes the grip *should* look like not what it looks like.

I replaced my vertical grip with an AGD bike grip. Not the prettiest but I'm just used to them.

it's just a cocker to a5 adapter. screw it on the cocker barrel, then screw into the a5 threads in the crossover. look in the pdf that was linked earlier.
