I might be wrong about this, but the description of the ERC says it's a different version of the BT4, and I think the BT4 is BT's remake of the Tippmann 98, which is a very popular marker that has a lot of cosmetic upgrades like that available.

If that's the case, mostly any magazine or shroud will work with your marker, although the barrel might be a problem. If I remember correctly, Apex barrels are pretty short, so finding a shroud that fits as is might be tough. However, there are a lot of barrels that are longer, and compatible with the Apex tip, which is what puts the spin on the ball.

bleh, I dislike apexes anyways. Why not get a nice shroud and then snag a Lapco Barrel with a small bore for cheap. If you still haven't sold the apex tip, then move it to the new barrel, which should be a bit longer anywho.

I think the BT "tippyripoffs" can in fact use tippmann a5 or tippmann 98 aftermarket parts.

The way I heard it, BT was started by Ben Tippmann, who designed most of Tippmann's markers but was kicked out of the company for some reason or another. There was a lawsuit somewhere, the decision being that Ben could use Tippmann's designs since he came up with them, but couldn't market them under the Tippmann name. Hence why BT makes markers that are almost exact copies of Tippmanns.

A scope on a paintball gun? Let me know when you can actually put that to use. Only setup I've ever liked is a red dot sight on a phantom pump.

Yeah, something along the lines of that, then it changed to battle tested, but it says "Ben Tippmann" in the BT4's description on KEE's site (loool fails)

Either way, solid product, but better than the original if I say so myself, about to pick up the delta, I believe it is... Going to make it drum-magazine-fed and have a nice little tank in the stock which should supply enough air for about 4-ish pods. Enough to go through one scenario/milsim match anyways.
