Introducing the All New E-Grip, Electronic Grip System. The E-Grip system uses an electronic control board to activate a solenoid. When activated, the solenoid disengages the sear, which in turn fires the marker. The System is powered by a concealed 9 Volt Battery. All electronic components are completely contained inside the grip, which allows you to quickly and easily change grips.
Semi-Auto: Fires 1 Shot for each trigger pull.
Auto-Response: Fires 1 Shot for each trigger pull or release.
Full Auto: Fires Repeatedly as long as the trigger is held.
3 Shot Burst: Fires 3 Shots for each trigger pull.
Turbo: Fires 1 shot for every trigger pull, fires 1 shot for every trigger pull or release if the time between trigger pulls is less than .25 seconds.
The Tippmann E-Grip is newer, so it should be commonly available, both new and used.
E-grip w/ Double Trigger (modified)
DOP Power tube
20 oz Pure Energy co2
Multiple settings for Rate of Fire and Shots Per Pull
Easy to install
Switching settings in the field
Easy to mess up the nylon screws
Installed in seconds, right out of the box. Pop two set pins, slide the old grip off, put the new grip on (after installing the battery of course).
To change out the battery, it took me under two minutes and I was taking my time. Battery does fit a bit snug inside the grip and you must be careful to not let the wires press against the firing pin or it will rub through the casing of the wires. I have a mini screw driver with a flat and phillips head on opposite ends, overall length of two inches. This helps greatly in adjusting the RoF and SPP because of the expansion chamber. But most important of all, it's all about the paintball you use. I use Scorch balls when I'm doing single fire, but when using three round burst or full auto, I go with Marbles. Scorch is too brittle and it turns the cyclone feeder into a blender.
It's a great buy if you have the right paint and barrel.

the imagine lol the e-grip doesnt compare beautiful peice of work
TIPPMANN A-5, red hot bolt, e-grip, x-core 8 stage x-chamber, cp single peice barrel, superfly bolt, red hot bolt, mp5 sliding stock, 50mm red dot sight with the off set base, 4 20 ounces, 2 9 ounces, adn thats about it
work of art, i never have had any probs with it :D
The rof and firing settings at 1st but then they r no prob.
overall i love this upgrade!, never have had any problems with this grip. It sounds really mean with the upgraded front bolt instead of the plastic stock bolt. i hated the screwdriver settings at first but i got used to them and now i like them and i dont find them a problem anymore. it like the rof ! it clocked in at 18bps with all my upgrades!.. I would get it if u were looking for speed and power. for about $119 its a pretty good deal if you have a job or if your just itchi'n to sped a couple of extra bucks. BUY THIS PRODUCT!!!
penny for your thoughts..... if u run on c02 get the x-core 8 stage x-chamber
co2 problems r solved
Buy it for.... rof, reliability, price...$119 come on guys good deal
Changing the modes is a bit hard.
Didnt come with battery.
Being able to change the rate of fire is amazing.. I had some skeptics about the about the auto fire and the burst breaking balls ect, Once I tested the grip it was nothing shy of amazing. I dont know if they all dont come with batteries but mine didnt.
Id recomend this grip to anyone, Little bit pricey but worth every penny.
A5-Egrip with double trigger,expansion chamber and flat-line also a 12in jj ceramic
-one word FAST!
nothing I have noticed
When I first got my A5 it was faster then the 98 custom I had first used. Now that I have the e-grip it is amazing. It is definitly a all-around-gun. It can play in the woods(and dominate)or play on the speed-ball field(and dominate). Next time a person at your field using a high end marker makes fun of you for using a Tippmann, take them to the speed-ball and show them whats-what.
This is definatly a good by...but make sure you have a good set of pods or you will have to leave the field mid-game because you ran out of paint.
When I first bought the e-grip I put a new battery on and then I put it on the gun. I brought it outside and shot it. I was amazed at the how sensitive the trigger was. At first I thought the trigger was great and then I switched the trigger spring with a spring of a click pen. The trigger was so sensitive that I could barely touch the trigger and it would shoot. When I went to turn the rate of fire up I noticed that the screw was missing. As you can imagine I was not happy. So I called up tippmann and told them I was not about to spend another $12 on sending my e-grip back, being the good company that they are the said they would pay for the shipping cost to and from the warehouse. I live In Maine so it took almost 2 weeks to get my new e-grip. When I finally received it in the mail I put it on the gun, turned the rate of fire all the way up and went out shooting. Unfortunately I had just about no co2 so it didnít really shoot. This gun is very fast in turbo mode or auto response. Much faster than full auto. I can only imagine how fast this thing would go if you have a double trigger. The one other thing I want for my gun is air instead of co2. If you have any suggestions about what tank, pressure and size to get when you donít have a comp air system I would appreciate it. This gun is way faster than a spyder and seems almost as fast as some intimidators.
buy this upgrade for your a-5. It will put you up there with the $500-$900 guns, woth every penny
a5 with egrip ,flatline , compressed air and center flag reg.
adjustable rate of fire , light squeeze on trigger, multiple modes of fire
buttons could be a little easier to adjust
I had an evil omen . I traded it for a a5 with a r/t and some money . I wasn't getting the distance i wanted with the omen . I added a flatline and a reg to it and it was great .
But something was missing the egrip once that was put in it was all over i am snipping heads from 50 yds Eaasy . the fully auto mode is amazing .. but u have to up the rate of fire.. if you own an a 5 you need an egrip
i give it a 9 out of 10 only because the buttons are a little inconvenient
A-5 w/ E Grip (1-2 mm pull)
GTA double trigger
12" BigShot (beadblasted)

20 oz CO2
none that i have found
This upgrade really lets the true potential of the A5 shine. I have heard that some people say that this is not walkable, mine is perfectly walkable. Took about an hour of tweeking between the penspring mod and the straw method. Had to shave some areas of the trigger to get it as shot as it is. Back to the review, this will allow your A5 to shoot as fast as your fingers can move. Its pretty damn fast, especially on full auto. But when if comes to the field, i stick to just semi, its all you will need. It really made me thing of the power i had in my hand when i first went to the field with this. People had 400-1000 (starting) markers, yet my $434 marker kept up. The new LP kit would really bring out the beast of this marker. The way it is set up now, to me, is perfect.
This product really adds to the fun. No one expects it to shoot fast, yet their jaws drop when they do. This brings a whole new aspect to the game. Although, i don't like the fact of how fast the batteries dies, in respect to other markers out there. Well i guess thats what rechargable is for.
A-5, 14" Smart Parts Teardrop, Rear Velocity Adjuster, E-Grip, Dead On A-5 Pro Seal Front Bolt And Power Tube, Dead On Front Grip, Double Trigger, Soon To Have Expansion Chamber.
Fast, Lots of Different Modes, Adjust ROF, Lightens and Shortens Trigger Pull, Durable.
Have to use a screwdriver to change modes.
Overall this product is a very good upgrade that I have found out so far. The only thing that I have found wrong with it that I personally don't like is that you have to change fireing modes with a screwdriver. If you are not careful you will round out the slot were you put the screwdriver to change modes, and it will not catch anymore and you will not beable to change modes so you have to be very careful. Other wise this product is very good. It makes the gun just as accurate, your gun will be faster. So pretty if you are debating to buy this product DO IT!!!!
If have trouble deciding between RT/Egrip, go with the egrip because there are more modes, and I've heard of the RT giving people problems.

-sometimes 2 fast 2 control
-shoots a bunch of paint fast
I just purcahsed my e-grip about almost a month ago, and I am glad i did. The first time i played with it was awsome!!!!!!!!!! It shot so fast I was on a hill and one of the other team tried to sneak up on me, I saw him out of the corner of my eye i swung around and lit him up with a quick burst of 8-10 shots before he could shoot twice at me. This upgrade is pretty expensive but if you look for a deal (ebay). I have seen one go for as low as $81 on there so check it out it is worth it. From my personal experience using the e-grip this thing will give you a definate advantage over any gun especially with the flatline. They are going to have to get through a thick wall of paint before they can get to you. Once you shoot it will be shooting a bunch of paint, it is just so fun to let off a burst on some one who doesnt expect it. If you have the $ get it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
When people know that you have an e-grip they are very hesitant to be on the other team and also to get close to you. Get it you will fall in love the first time you let it rip and a spray of paint makes contact with the opposition's head and body.

-dop bullet drop
-uber double trigger mod
ease of installation
none except for ball choppage at high rof and not compatible with double trigger
i just picked this up the other day and it really rips! turbo mode is my favorite. the modes are great and it really cooks when you turn up the rof. one thing i don't suggest is max speed in turbo mode because the cyclone flails so fast it becomes a miny belnder and no one wants to clean that out! i was a little bothered though because you have to do a custom job if you want to put in a double trigger and still have it work. there are a couple of pins and springs to knock out but when you do that you can really let loose in semi mode! i never thought i could walk an a-5 trigger
i give this a 9 just for overall goodness. i took off because of the choppage at high speeds and the do it yourself trigger job if you want a double trigger but that isn't really the e-grips fault
