Why would you ever want to change modes on the field??? That is horribly illegal. You are asking people to cheat. Just begging them by doing this. Poor poor move on Tippmann's part. Poor move. I know they want to make it tactical for the milsim foillowing, but having changeable firing modes with the flick of the switch is just stupid.

At the very least I hope it has a tournament lock like the TM-7. a selector switch is a great addition but i will admit they create the temptation to cheat.

southeast brigade patches coming soon! Archanglmikel's feedback

For rec play and for scenarios and sim play.... As long as full auto and the like are legal (a la Red Dawn scenario at d-day field) who cares?

I think it's kinda cool. Might buy one for the novelty of it.

Too much can be said about this New E-Grip, so I'll just wait a month or two and see what the Reviews are on this one, before I decide to get one.

It depends on which field you play at, one of the fields I play on allows ramping for example... I can kind of see it being useful there, but in all reality I would probably set it on a ramping fire mode and just leave it there.

At my field you can have whatever mode you want as long as it is under 15bps.
It is just the appeal the the mil-sim nuts who want to fell like they are shooting a real gun.

In the Milsim Paintball Community, one doesnt need to go Full Auto just to have the feel of a Real Gun and that using Semi and or 3 round bursts is good enough to eliminate a player from the game.

Unlike the hoppers that feed most guns the A-5 Cyclone indexes the balls in the bottom of the catch cup so it won't chop. Each cycle of the gun will chamber just one full round as the cyclone will cycle off of the excess air of each shot. Now at the faster rates of fire the egrip may be able to do will require upgrades to the cyclone for it to keep up and at that point "blender" might be appropriate. Automags are also capable of insane rates of fire without sensor eyes thanks to the Level 10 bolt. Mechanical ways to avoid chopping paint exist.

There are already plenty of E-gripped A-5s that don't chop. This one is only different in that you can more easily select the modes on the fly and as I understand it, it can be locked into Semi only for tournaments or local field rules.

I like the fact you can change modes without using a twig!

One thing that I do like is the electric safety... instead of physically blocking the trigger, it looks like it shuts off the switch. Now I wonder how they lock the switch while still allowing for the user to switch modes between semi and safety.

Nice product yes, but as said, a lot of cheating will happen.
