Many web searchers have found this paintball mod and wondered what it was for. The Tacamo Handguard Adapter will attach to any paintball gun that uses model 98 barrel threads and allow the gun to use the shroud from the US Army Alpha Black. This device was originally made for the Tacamo Magazine feed kit. Since the magazine kit is the same for the Alpha Black and the Tippmann 98 Custom, this block needed to be added to the Alpha Black version of the kit so the front shroud would still work. An added bonus of the adapter is that it has a small section of 1″ rail on the top for mounting gear.
