How hard to electro an epic?

Love the concept of the epic, would love to buy one. But not if its mech 8P call me fussy i just like the very smoothe and comfy trigger and smoothness of les internal parts moving.

Anyways what would i have to do to get this baby electropneumatic?

Dont really know much about the marker there are no nice diagrams just a bunch of "paintball" words. Like every company says they can do such n such a thing but really its not quite that true.

So is this a sear tripper type of setup or is it really that odd trigger setup like i saw in the internal animation. Not familiar with mags or anything more complicated than a cocker n my electro babies.

Thanks

electro epic

There was a big discussion onit a while ago. I dont know if it is honestly possible or not. I think that it would be ok.I love the epic just like it is though. An electro would be nice for tournament play .

How hard would it be to convert it to like an eblade or spyder frame with a utb board. Is this marker a sear tripper or how does it work in that department?

here is a link to an animation of how the epic works:

http://www.zdspb.com/media/tech/animations/epic.gif

much of the valve componets are housed inside the trigger frame. if you could mod the foregrip from an invert mini to mount of the front of the epic and have that house the battery and board, you might be able to fit a switch behind the trigger and a solenoid in the grip. i haven't seen one up close to know if there is enough room in the frame to do this, but i would love to get my hands on one and find out.

ha ha i was shooting my new epic witch is a bit leeky. cranking out with that gun is a breeze. but im used to playing speedball with my tippmann a-5 idk why you would want it electronic? makes it more expensive and another thing that can go wrong. dumb idea let ICE do the enginearing.

p.s. yes it would be nice to have for a tourny. what the paintball industry should be working towards is a faster mechanical trigger mechinism.

good call.

my intrest in making an epic electronic is purely for the sake of seeing if i can make it work. I would be able to look at my marker and be able to say "no one else has one like this."
