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 This device was originally made for the Tacamo Magazine feed kit.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.
Thinking about a bottle upgrade from your current CO2 paintball bottle? The Empire 72ci 3000psi bottle may be the perfect choice for you. This bottle is an inexpensive entry in to compressed air (HPA). While a little on the larger size (just a bit bigger than a 20oz CO2 bottle) this HPA tank will hold enough air to fire about 1,000 shots. You will not need to do anything special to your paintball gun. This bottle screws right into the gun’s ASA and is ready to go. These bottles last 5 years before they need to be tested (just like CO2 bottles). Compressed air will mean that each of your shots will fire at the same speed. Cold weather will not decrease your performance like it does with CO2
The new OU812 paintball masks from Save Phace are using a new graphic transfer technology called water immersion. This allows a much greater resolution on their graphics. Now for most paintball goggle companies that wouldn’t be a big deal but Save Phace has some really good artists that produce very detailed and exciting designs. This higher resolution lets the artists show off their talents even more and you get the benefit by getting to wear a true piece of artwork while you shoot people.
“]Surely you’ve heard about the new magazine fed conversion kits by Tacamo. If not well then read on.
This conversion kit includes everything you need to convert a Tippmann 98 Custom from a regular hopper fed paintball gun to a magazine fed paintball gun. If you’ve looked at how the feed port is integrated in to the body then you can tell that this is no small feat. The kit includes a new body for the gun that puts the feed port under the gun instead of on the side. It also has the magazine mount and a 20 round magazine too. You can even upgrade your magazine to a large Box Magazine that mounts to to the same position underneath of the gun. The Nautilus Box magazine holds up to 200 rounds.
Lapco has released 2 new colors of their TPX front block.FDE, or Flat Dark Earth, is kind of an olive drab green color. Now it’s just the picatinny rail on top that is this new color. The main front block body is still dust black aluminum.
The DS TPX Front Block Mod, or Desert Sand,has a light brown rail on top.
Both colored rails are made out of a military grade composite that won’t deform in high humidity or extreme (high or low) temperatures. So once you get your sight or scope sighted in, it’s going to stay in position.
The Tippman TiPX was formerly called the TPX by Tippmann. Regardless of what your gun says on the side (TPX or TiPX) this will be a great mod. Lapco’s exacting standard ensure a perfect fit to your paintball pistol.

The first things is the Jerry Can Paintball container. This large container holds over 1000 paintballs. An air tight lid keeps them fresh all day long. Now you don’t have to worry about your paint getting swollen and sticky because of high humidity. You also don’t spill them all over the place when you pick up that bag of balls that you were sure was tied shut.
From you new Jerry Can container, you can pour directly in to your pods but usually this takes 2 hands if you’re lucky and even then you end up spilling at least a few paintballs on the ground. Now introducing the Pod Funnel and Pod Pal pod holder. The Pod pal is a slick little tripod device that sets on a table or any flatish surface and holds your pod securely in place. Kind of like a 3rd hand.
The funnel s what it says it is. Just drop this funnel in the top of your pod and you now have a doubly large opening to pour in to. If you miss that then you might as well call it a day.
Each of these paintball accessories will save you time and paintballs. So hurry up and get some from TippmannParts.com so you can hurry up and play.

JT has recently released a new color of their popular Spectra Proflex line. The Desert Tan and Black paintball face mask is a perfect match for lots of different camo patterns. If you’re not already familiar with the Proflex line then you should be. They use the Flex7 Goggle Frame and Mask but instead of having hard plastic ear pieces they have a smaller and softer earpiece. So YES, there is less protection here. But you can hear better with these goggles because there’s less bulky goggle blocking the way to your ears. You also get a tactical advantage that balls are less likely to break on these soft ears. More bounces mean you get to stay in the game longer. The smaller foam ear pieces also make the goggle a bit lighter. The Flex7 and ProFlex include the soft rubber mouth guard too. You’ll definitely feel the paint hit you on the cheeks and mouth but you get lots of bounces off this area. So if you like to get up in the fight and need that extra advantage while looking good at the same time then you need to take a look at the se new limited edition colors. They also come in Olive and Lime Green.

New for 2011, the A5 Flatline now includes a built-in, wide-mouth foregrip. Concealed within is a slightly curved barrel design which, using centrifugal force, places backspin on each shot. This enables paintballs to travel much longer distances, allowing you to outrange opponents while maintaining level, accurate shots. Increasing your marker’s effective range up to 250 feet, you maintain an additional 100 foot advantage over traditional barrel systems. Designed to benefit users in a variety of settings, the Flatline is ideal for snipers and back players.
What is worse than missing an entire day of play due to one bad o-ring? This universal parts kit from Tippmann will keep your marker working perfectly and allow you to fix problems at the field. Arranged in individual sections with a clear plastic container, your parts are easy to locate and ready for travel.
The older style Tippman A5 RT has been discontinued and is no longer available. Replacing the old version, the New A-5 RT features a re-designed Cyclone Feed System, an 8.5 inch high-performance stone-honed barrel and several other features to improve the markers weight, maneuverability and ease-of-maintenance.
Designed for the original A5 Flatline Barrel System with a round, outer shroud, this camouflage neoprene cover is an effective way to decrease your markers visual profile. Consider combining this with an A5 hopper sound cover , also from APP, to further your markers visual concealment and sound reduction.
These adapters are a great way to make use of barrels not currently compatible with your marker…compatible. Incorporating a tighter diameter than other brands, the iSwitch creates a seal between the adapter and the marker’s front bolt O-ring. This increases consistency and performance without decreasing your marker’s accuracy or increasing ball breakage. Backwards compatible to all previously manufactured specifications and thread types, each is made of 100% aircraft grade aluminum and micro polished and treated through a custom anodizing process to ensure high performance and durability.
