wow. Brings back memories.

I owned a VM68 back in the day and I remembering envying the trigger from the ads of APG but I've never seen one.
I did see one live on a Mag. It was frightening when it was on the field.

My understanding was they were popular... for a few weeks. By the time an advertisement was in APG, the ATF had called Tippmann and told them to pull it off the market.

Because the way it was set up, it could be adapted to a semi-automatic firearm very easily.

Odd they'd care about an electric one when manual ones are legal.

I'm sure the manual versions have been vetted by the ATF, and somewhat controlled as far as purchasing goes.

Yeah but you can hook them up to an electric drill pretty fast. They're pretty cheap and not all that regulated (outside of the usual problem States)

I remember seeing VM's with an air tube running from the gun (I think the hammer tube) to the hopper. It was the fist agitating hopper - used a burst of excess air to shake up the balls and keep them feeding for that Double Trouble trigger.

I wonder if anyone ever put the DT trigger on the VM-68 Bullpup...
