Tippmann Releases New A5 E-Grip

Cheat at what, exactly? Tippmanns aren't known for being big tourney markers. If this was on an Ion, I might see it a bit differently. However, I really don't see this being that big of a deal, at least more a deal then the response trigger or the regular E-Grip.

As long as its legal to have full auto (and it is at my field) or it has a tourney lock, i don't see the problem.
The problem i do see, is that for the price of a tippmann a5 plus the $129.00 for this, you could have just gotten a real electro anyway, plus who buys a tippmann for its speed?
(Quote-weltmaker2000) I don't call my guns pumps. I refer to them as euthanizers of the stupid.

This is primarily marketed to the woodsball crowd who don't have these ridiculous issues of full auto or not. The paintball industry already faces these issues with all the e-triggers with ramp in rebound modes they might as well have a selector switch as well. As far as fields go, the refs can spot a cheater and they will be dealt with. Anybody who owns a full auto marker should have the capacity for some self restraint as we arent some ridiculous adrenaline fueled adventure junkies who pray on the weak.
