I'm very disappointed that they didn't make a bullpup. The TiPX already uses a trigger slide/extension to actuate the valve, so they just need to make that longer.

Maybe like this:


How about something like this, for my Havoc:

I was really hoping for a vector, it'd look so cool!



The 12 gram changer is pretty nifty though.

Honestly, I think the best news is that 98 Sten-like kit for $50. Almost every new player starts with a 98 and that's a super easy way to get them interested in mag play. Limited ammo becomes cool for newbies, the idea of a pump doesn't seem crazy to said newbies anymore, and we get more people interested in limited ammo (mag, pump, stick, whatever) which only opens up even more "old sk00l" playing styles at your regular field.

Yup! I can't wait to get one and turn one of my 98's into a first strike sniper with it...

$50 for the 98 conversion kit seems a little extravagant when you can accomplish the same thing with thirty cents-worth of ABS conduit and some 10 round tubes.

i think it is more for the FS rounds. But Tippmann couldn't go out saying "take a dremel to your marker" because then they would most likely be liabel when some 13yo looses an arm and a leg.

WARNING: Gross generalizations ahead!

True The_Inflicted, but newer players seem to think that unless they spend a bunch of money, it won't give them that tactical advantage.

Yeah, FSR was the first thing I thought someone would mod the kit for.

That's assuming that a cut-up right receiver half is going to feed the rounds properly with amateur modification.
It's certainly possible, but seeing as how Kingman can't even build a production gun that feeds FSRs reliably I have limited faith in myself and my dremel to get better results.

When people start posting in about how easy it is to use this kit to build a fully-functional FSR gun, I will certainly take notice, but for now it's (very credible) speculation.
