Since there was no seal, and no collar for a seal, the frames didn't have a hole big enough to accommodate a seal going through them. Check yours, this may require some trading out or modifying of the frame.
I did not know that, I always thought that it required the seal...figures why I don't have the cut out for the stem and collar to go thru and the grip was stamped Aug 14, 1984 [or something like that]. The nelson that was former rust bucket that I got off this site had the cut out for the collar, now it all makes sense!
There are grips that support the 12gram as they have a gaping hole where you insert the 12gram and there is a speed wheel that was used many moon ago. I know Baccipaintball.com sold battle grips that had the hole for the 12gram but couldn't find it...:/ https://www.baccipaintball.com/nel498.html https://www.baccipaintball.com/parts/...son-grips.html
There is a link to Baccipaintball that shows what they look however when I clicked the link they don't have them instock...
