Tippmann handles

as we all should know by now tippmann uses only the finest selection of plastic bags to force their products.
now recently I have purchased a BT DE which dropped from a table causing the handle to smash it two pieces.
beyond this we have thousands of chip boards and triggers from previously smashed tippmann triggers.
does anyone know whether aluminum trigger frames are available anywhere for the following markers:
BT Combat 4
Tippmann A5 & X7

Not anymore, no. JCS used to make an aluminum frame for the A-5, but that didn't last for very long. Besides, it's R/T only. A while back, there was a movement for TechT to make a set of aluminum frames, but they never came to fruition.

Nope, especially since BT and Tippmann are separate entities. Not only that, but they're fairly hostile towards each other. Not to long ago, Tippmann sent out what boiled down to be a very angry email to everyone on their subscribers list that basically said "Stop sending us your broken BT markers and expecting warranty work. We'd rather light them on fire than fix them."
