Review: well, lets be honest people, who doesnt want to have a fully automatic gun? the E-grip does a good job but i would not recommend it. The grip malfunctions ALOT on anything but semi. It will fire 2-4 rounds then stop releasing the hammer, it will just make a click noise. The screwdirver that comes with the grip also strips the fire mode switch when u change it, its made out of like cheese or somthing...
As usual, tippmann had to do thing differently, which worked in some areas (the A-5 for expample) but was a bad idea in others. The E-grip is a great example. It was desighnewd to be compact, so they brought the changing buttons inside the grip so u have to use a screwdriver to change them, but yet my biggest complaint is were the fireing button is located. It to is inside the gun, witch is just plain not needed, it makes it so u cant bring the trigger right up to the button and fire faster, a pain if u like to know when ur guns gonna fire, the new firing button also has a TON of slop. the first 1/6 of an inch the trigger fires, then theres about 3/4 an inch of just plain uselsss pull, this makes it very hard to fan or walk
Conclusion: its not worth the money
it has so many bad points to it, but i may have just got a bad one, still for about 120 bucks is it really worth it to take the chance?

I don't have the E-Grip but I do have a Fully Automatic (Imagine)...usually when mine shoots 2-4 times and starts clicking it's because I am low on CO2 and there is not enough pressure to push the bolt back.

You said the E-grip does a good job, then you go on to bash it. Make up your mind, moron.

i have a E-grip and i love it. I can take around 2000+ shots per battery. i can do any mode with no breaks or malfunctions and try a full air tank you tool.
