98 with First Strike

So I know this has been discussed before but I never heard the end of it. What kind of modifications would we be talking about? Just some dremmeling or a new body? Thoughts?

You firstly have to modify your breach to receive the funny shaped rounds, that just takes a dremel.

The real problem is aligning the rounds coming into the breach. For that you need either to build an alignment system out of the hopper, which would be large and prone to jams. Or convert your marker to magazine fed. Tippmann just released a modification to make the 98 magazine fed although it's out the top magazine. I believe tacamo made a magazine conversion kit as well.

I thought the tacamo kits were first strike capable out of the box? otherwise, if you want to use that tipx magwell they just released then you would only have to dremel the body, unless you notice the bolt chopping th ewings off the FS rounds.

While there's been a lot of speculation that this possible, I don't think anyone's ever actually had a chance to try this yet.
