Well, not exactly. A little over a year ago, there were various companies producing and working on aftermarket shrouds for the Tiberius T8 and the TiPX. Milsig was one of them with their FXR and there was another available from Opsgear I believe. I was asked about my TiPX mod by another aftermarket producer and we worked on a deal but it never panned out. There were too many companies working in a very small niche market. There wasn't enough return available to do a production run.
What Tippmann appears to have done is take the better features of the aftermarket add ons (like mine) and combine it with their existing product line like the clamp on feed neck from the Trracer and the remote line connector upgrade. They recast the shells and viola! a new marker using community generated improvements and ideas. Don't get me wrong, Tippmann is a great company, but there is a difference between soliciting user feedback to make improvements like with the XVR and using other peoples ideas without giving credit or compensation.
My bad for posting pictures and not talking to Tippmann directly when it was still just an idea. I would be interested to hear what the Tippmann reps have to say about where their R&D guys did their homework. A5 OG maybe?
