Mag Fed Conversion Kit For Tippmann/BT/SW-1/US Army Markers

Tippmann 98/BT/SW-1/Alpha Black/Project Salvo/Carver One With Mag Fed Kit


Tippmann A5 With Mag Fed Kit


Tippmann X7 With Mag Fed Kit


Tippmann X7 Phenom With Mag Fed Kit


Tacamo is proud to unveil a truly game-changing advance in aftermarket accessories. The idea started with RAP4's use of detachable, spring-powered magazines for the acclaimed T68 marker series. Then RAP4 supported the rise of tactical simulation paintball with the Tactical Ten Paintball League in New Jersey, and introduced a true innovation in scenario paintball with the magazine-fed-only "Operation: End War" game on October 2-3 at TAG Paintball in California.

And now, Tacamo is proud to present you a preview of the future of tactical woodsball: the Tacamo Magazine Conversion Kit, each specific to the woodsball marker you already own. The Magazine Conversion Kit allows you to ditch that hopper, open up your field of view, balance your marker more naturally, look sharper, and attain positive ball feeding from any angle, by the use of our interchangeable, spring-powered magazines.

Yes, this is for the marker you already own. Here's how that's possible...

Tacamo recognizes your investment in woodsball - in time spent mastering a marker and its maintenance, in money invested in accessories, and the bond you form with a trusted piece of equipment. You shouldn't have to buy a whole new marker to try a whole new format...and now, to play in magazine-feed-only formats, and reap the extensive benefits of mag-fed technology, you don't have to buy another marker.

Just use the Tacamo Magazine Conversion Kit, and use the marker you already know and love!

The Tacamo Magazine Conversion Kit replaces the current body on your marker, utilizing its existing internal parts - simply swap the internal parts from the old into the new, and you've imported the reliability, inherent accuracy, and controls of your trusted marker, into a body that is designed to accept detachable magazines...

...and enhance the mil-sim look of your marker. You can even attach just about every aftermarket accessory you already rely on, or want to try out. It's that easy to ditch the hopper and rock some hot magazine-feed action.

The Tacamo Magazine Conversion Kits will soon be available for:
- Tippmann® 98® - Tippmann® A5®
- Tippmann® X7® - Tippmann® Phenom®
- BT Paintball 4® - Valken SW-1®
- US Army Carver One® - US Army Project Salvo®
- US Army Alpha Black®

Now you can carry the marker you know and trust...with the brand-new functionality of using interchangeable magazines. When you absolutely need the firepower of a squad automatic weapon - to keep up with hopper-fed markers in all-out paint slinging - the Tacamo Magazine Conversion Kits also accept the 250 round RAP4 Box Magazine!

The Tacamo Magazine Conversion Kits will make the emerging magazine-only format scenarios even more exciting and realistic, create a new standard in realism and ergonomics, and change the game. Are you ready to evolve with the sport?

Tacamo - Own the Field!

Pretty cool for the milsim crowd, nothing revolutionary though.

Installation is pretty simple - you just need to hatch open the body and transfer all the internal over to the new mag fed kit. It takes about 5-10 minutes.

care to show a video of this??? im not seeing how you can do a mag feed system to an A5 body from the mag well with out drilling a hole in the bottom, unless you are using a camber tube up the side of the marker

because what they are offering is an entire new body (assuming i'm reading it properly). simply take all operating interals out of your existing marker and transfer them to the new body that has been engineered for mag-feeding.

I just picked up an Alpha Black from my buddy. The cyclone feeder was jacked and I threw on my Halo to do a scenario. Coming from a Mini, I wasnt loving the bulky transition. This mod would definitely help me like the Alpha enough to keep it.
Any idea on cost? Didnt see it anywhere...

This is great for people who don't care to do modifications to their markers but want the milsim look.

Courage is moving into danger when there's a means of escape.

If you are aware of the priciple and you violate it knowingly, it's not a violation.
It's called good tactics.

I want to see this 250 round box magazine and how that works. That would be much more effective than a 20 round magazine if you're playing anywhere other than a Tac ten field.

The conversion kit comes with new body shell - you just need to swap the internals. No cutting - no drilling - no modifications.

I have to say, if the mags work well and feed reliably, I'm pretty impressed. Way to think outside the box.

This is only thing that would make me want to own a tippman.

Looks absolutely amazing, I am just worried the price is going to blow it out of the water since it has to include a completely new body shell. But if the price was reasonable, I would definately get one of these and an old tippman for bushball.

Edit: Holy ****, $60? - Hats off to you guys RAP4. Going to buy a tippman now.

I think the people looking at this as a "buy a tippmann then buy this" are going to be shocked at the cost. Its more for people who already have years worth of investment into their guns. Scenario ballers spend ungodly amounts of money on things like sights, stocks, lasers, etc. If you already have all that invested in the gun, then its easy to drop another ____ amount on this if all the other parts still work. If you are starting from scratch, there are probably other prebuilt options available cheaper.

$60 preorder now, $120 if you buy it last minute...

$60 + $40 project 98 and wait a few months. I don't think $100 is "shocking" at all. Though from the pictures it looks like it doesn't include a trigger guard even - the stock, foregrip, sights and such I wasn't expecting to be included at all but a trigger guard? Really? I hope the old one will transfer in but it's hard to tell from the pictures, they've got that fancy looking one installed .

The price is amazing, and the coolest thing about this is that when combined with a Phenom you'll have a mag fed electro! Since Phenoms are awesome, that'll pretty much make for the best mag fed marker on the market!

What would be even better is if they came up with kits for TM15s and TM7s

I'd so totally rock this anyways, it's worth buying a tippmann for.

This is an awesome idea. If I wasn't strapped for cash, I would consider picking this up.
