TACAMO Magazine Conversion Kit Evaluation

Greetings Everyone!
We're glad to see that everyone's excited about the new magazine fed conversion for the Tippmann and BT markers. We would like to see your inputs and feed backs by allowing a couple of the forum members to test and evaluate the magazine kits.

In order to participate, you must be:
1. one of the top posters. (Number of Post Counts)
2. be a member of the forum for at least 1 year.
3. have recommendations/vouches from other members (the more the better)
4. consider forum member's suggestions on which elements to test/eval
5. last but not least, provide us with feedbacks.

We have working prototypes, but we want the paintball, especially the milsim community, to give us feedback/suggestions into developing one of the biggest and best scenario/milsim changing products.

We would like you, the members of the paintball community, to come up with the test criteria and to chose the tester by voting.

Let me know if you have any questions, I'd be more than happy to answer them.

If you have not heard about this, you can check out this link for more information:

Does the feed put any limitation on the maximum BPS?

There is interest in there in the Norwich Paintball club. If you want I can test it and get feedback from them as well.

What is the time frame you are looking at for the testing?

My TPX has me hooked on mag fed play...
I knew I should lurk less, and post more....my A5 NEEDS one of these, NOW!





My brother and I run renegade Milsim Scenario games for between 12-40 guys depending on the week, on a bi-weekly schedule, and I can tell you for sure that many of them are excited (and nervous) about these kits.

#1 question I'm hearing (I've been talking these up with them) is about existing mods...my guys want to know that their AK-47/M16 kits will still work on their 98's, X7's and A5's...

Born4Evil seriously sounds like the devil himself, and its awesome. That gun is hands down the most badass gun in my mind.

I have been playing paintball for over 15 years and know alot about milsim markers. I play at least 2-3 times a month, mainly limited ammo as this is what our private field allows. I have used several differant mag fed markers over the years: TPX, TAC8, T9.1, Rap4 T68.

1. I may not be one of the top posters but i have written a review on on of your T68's before! Not on here but over at Milsim Empire, link here: MilSim Empire • View topic - Review of RAP4 T68
2. I have been a member since 1/2009 but have been browsing these forums for over a year!
3. Only vouches i would have is from sales i have made on here.
4. I have been following this on X7OG and here seeing what people are looking for and having played paintball for over 15 years I also know what to llok for in a marker.
5. The more feedback RAP4 gets i know the better the product will be!

On a side note i have already sent in my preorder for the phenom mag kit, as i am very excited to see someone finally made a conversion kit! Either way i do plan on doing a full review of this when it is realeased.

I can vouch for Born4Evil. I've played with him and his brother at their field and can affirm they play every 2 weeks...and also I've played many times with them at other events as well. As much as I'd like to evaluate one of these kits I can't think of anyone who would evaluate it better than Born4Evil. He's exactly the kind of player you want using your product.

The current magazine will feed up to +25 BPS and that's on the conservative side.
