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.

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...
