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!

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.

Looking to add some extra comfort and ease-of-use to your Tippmann marker but don’t have the customizable options necessary? Then it’s time you started looking at Trinity slings and adapters for your marker. First, the Picatinny rail sling adapter allows you to mount your sling points anywhere there are rails on your gun. This gives you a multitude of options when it comes to getting that perfect balanced feeling when fielding your marker.
When you’re done placing your adapter it’s time for you to choose a comfortable sling you can trust. We recommend Trinity 1-point and 2-point bungee slings for their reliability and comfort factor. Use the 2-point if you want that traditional rifle sling feeling that allows for more versatility and mobility or go for a 1-point sling that features tighter maneuvering and crisp marker movement.
Don’t skimp on your comfort and customization, it can set you ahead of your fellow players and increase your performance on the field.

If you’ve got any of the Tippmann paintball guns without a Cyclone feed like the 98 Custom, or Alpha Black then you might have found yourself having to shake your gravity fed hopper everyone once in awhile to keep the balls feeding in. This can be annoying at the very least and can ruin a game when you miss that critical shot at the worst. A hopper that doesn’t feed fast enough can also cause ball breaks in the feed neck. One good option we have right now is the ViewLoader Evlution 3 hoppers. These hoppers have recently dropped from $89.95 all the way down to $49.95. This makes them a great value option for a hopper upgrade.
