NopeNopeNope. The Tippmann Response Trigger (RT) Kit for X7‘s is designed for the original X7′s with blowback style operation. The newer X7 Phenom, sometimes just referred to as the Phenom, has a completely different type of valve system that is not compatible with how the RT kits work. If you want to upgrade your mechanical Phenom trigger you can convert it to electronic with an E-Grip kit.

Yes and No. The original Alpha Black paintball guns CAN NOT use the Response Trigger (RT) kits. If you get or have the Alpha Black ELITE then Yes. The Elites are more upgradeable and they will accept the RT kits. They use the same one as the 98′s do. Here it is!

Just realized we didn’t list on our site yet what kind of barrels the Tippmann FT12 uses. You might assume that since the FT-12 has Tippmann 98 internals that it would also use Tippmann 98 Barrels and that is indeed correct. The Tippmann FT-12 uses standard Tippmann 98 threaded barrels.
We’ve added a little blurb to our site listing all of the Tippmann paintball gun barrel thread types.

There’s been a little confusion on the size of the Ninja gauges so here’s a quick rundown.
The Ninja Micro gauge is the traditional small sized gauge that has been around for years. The face AND body/rim of the gauge has about the exact same diameter as a quarter. Not larger than a quarter. Almost the exact same size.
The Ninja Paintball MINI gauge on the other hand is the newer super small size. I personally would think Micro is smaller than Mini but as the name Micro has been around for a long time this new gauge is called the Mini. The Ninja Mini gauge face and body/rim is almost exactly the size of a penny. We’ll try to get a video or picture up here soon to better illustrate.
Micro = Quarter – Traditional small size.
Mini = Penny – New super small size.
Hope this helps!
Other paintball pressure gauges.

As we all know Tippmannmarkers have a long maintained reputation for reliability and performance, but sometimes at the cost of slightly more kick. This problem is solved with TechT‘s introduction of the Zero Kick Hammer SE with striker extension.
Being that the hammer is much lighter and quicker than the stock hammer it reduces the markers mechanical dwell greatly while giving you a faster trigger pull and drastically reduced kick. This all equates to less time your opponent has to react which in turn leads to more wins for you.
Don’t miss out on this fantastic and worthy upgrade.
