B5 bullpup /Tacamo Magazine Fed Conversion Kit for Tippmann A-5

Ok got all the parts in I saw a B5 bullpup mag feed and wanted to make one i ordered all the parts then read the post and saw they used a milsig k series well i am not shelling out for one and will make due with what i have .

Just curious has anyone tried this ? I will post pics as i continue trying to figure out how to cut away the least amount of the shell as possible.

the mag adapter actually fits with me only cutting a small portion of the shell but until i start wont know if it will interfere in the hand grip


any tips would be appreciated thanks
update

I want to say I saw someone has already finished this. Might want to look around the different forums to find it. Cant remember exactly where I saw it.

It looks good when done properly.

yea i have search and the one i found was done with a milsig not the Tacamo Magazine Fed Conversion Kit if you find it let me know

update today i made the cuts I try to make as few cuts as possible as these kits are hard to come across if i ever want to put shell back to original i would just need to glue pieces back sand and i am good .

cuts were made with a hack saw blade and one with dremel just to create space for the blade

as i assumed it is gonna be a tight fit on the grip but i have a solution for it once i get kit fitted going to need some fine tuning to get it to sit properly

I was just thinking i am not good at fabricating so if any one knows some one who wants to make a quick buck or two that would be great

i figured i can use Styrofoam to make a template to exact and possibly some one with skills working with fiber glass can wrap it sand to shape leave hollow and cut it in 2 pant black that way i can permanently attach and be able to open and close shell

like i said willing to pay for work let me know if you guys know any one thanks

ok here are some photos of a dry fit just wanted to see how it would look all together i find that since i had to completely cut one half of the shell in half the front is flimsy. what i am going to do is take a long screw that runs through the shell of the a5 about a 1/4 longer and on the other side cap it with a cap bolt i have some more sanding to do also found some foam i can make a mold out of figure i will just soak it in epoxy the mold it to shell cut in half and used it to support the small air tank

ok addressed the issue of having to cut one half of the b5 shell in 2 separate pieces
i figure once barrel is installed it will give the front half od the shell that had to separated from the rear some stability which it will but for added support i created out of the bottom half of the b5 kit a connection piece this will serve to reconnect the 2 half's and allow me to to run the wire from the trigger switch

@lilfry111 Thanks got a long way to go though here are some shots of it with the flateline barrel as i thought it makes the half in front more secure but still decided to bridge it with the piece i fabricated out of the bottom of the b5 kit

once i find a piece of plastic i am going to fabricate a cover piece being the white template box it in front near clip and bottom " hollow so air line will be covered and i have a place to attach Lapco Universal Dropforward below going to make the cover in 2 halfs so you can still open gun for maintenance with ease

Id just recommend filling the gaps in like maybe a ring as a guide for the magazines.
