Can You Put a Response Trigger (RT) Kit on a Phenom?

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.

No Phenom RT. Upgrade to E

Can the US Army Alpha Black Use a Response Trigger 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!

What kind of barrels does the Tippmann FT-12 use?

Hey Jack!

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.
