The Zero Kick Hammer™ is most profound performance upgrade you will ever experience in a Tippmann or BT Marker. Using our patent pending MRT Technology™ we have reduced the internal moving mass of the bolt assembly by nearly half. Say goodbye to the clunky, kickin' like karate, hand-numbing, operation that you have come to expect from Tippmann style markers.
The TechT Zero Kick Hammer is newer, so it should be commonly available, both new and used. Check out the Places to Buy links below for places to purchase it new.
Tippmann A5 SD setup, polished internals, venturi bolt, Metedyne collapsible stock, Rap4 MP5 mag, Opsgear barrel, E grip with stock board, HPA, 30mm red dot, 3 point sling
I installed the zkh in my marker with the stock spring as recommended. After installing I could not get my velocity up to where it was at with the stock hammer. With the stock one I was at a steady 295 to 300 fps. The best I could get with the zkh was 240, average was 218 fps. After I took the zkh out and put my stock hammer back in, I still could not get velocities up past 240. I tried with stronger springs and the results didn't change.
If you want to spend the money and it works for you, cool. If you like shiny things then this is for you. It didnt work for me or any of the six guys here that bought one. The guns were A5's and BT Deltas. The customer service from Tech T was awesome. I am in no way bad mouthing them. Im just giving my review of this product in my opinion.

Skips with E-Grips
The techt low kick hammer is a wonderful product. The hammer makes the kick of your tippmann much less noticeable and i would even go as far to say very very close to tournament marker kick (comparison to a DP F7). It says it has a longer wear life which is good because after about 250000 rounds a stock hammer needs replacement. So i expect to get about half a million paintballs through this gun before it needs replacement anything. Techt always makes quality products and this is just another example of an excellent product.
If used on an ACT gun it will not fit with the ACT spring, you will be able to install it it just will require you to take out the ACT spring rendering the ACT useless.
If used with an E-grip you will need to adjust dwell and debounce in order for the gun to not skip. no big deal just something to be aware of.
My only gripe is that this disables ACT which results in a 8/10
Buy this if your into tinkering with tippmanns and pouring money into you 98. Otherwise the money is better spent buying a different gun/playing paintball.

14" J&J Ceramic Barrel
Super Response Trigger Mod
Quick Exhaust Piston Housing
Zero Kick Hammer
3 Way Rail
Side Velocity Adjuster
Maddmann Spring Kit
Hair Pin Trigger Kit
Super light, faster cycling, less recoil
I purchased this hammer looking for a new upgrade for my 98 Custom Pro and trying to improve my cycle rate with the super response trigger. Now this thing for certain, just like they claim, is ALOT lighter than the stock hammer for the 98. It is pretty awesome in that alone. I haven't gotten to use this in battle yet, only tested it, but it increased my BPS with my response trigger by at least 2 (from testing). The amount of recoil is also a little less. Now, you paintball gun is going to shoot harder or lighter depending on the amount of force applied to the pin in the CO2 chamber. Force is determined my the momentum of the bolt hitting the pin. With this is mind the weight and speed at which the hammer is moving will determine how hard the pin is hit thus how hard your gun will shoot. So assuming the loss in weight will result in a lighter shot I added in a stronger spring, which I'd recommend given the physics of it. You could easily pick up the Maddmann spring kit and add that in.
Overall this thing's pretty sweet: less recoil, faster cycling rate, and more consistent. Like I stated, adding in a tighter drive spring would probably be a good idea given the loss in weight. If your looking for a way to improve your 98, A5, X7, or BT, I'd say pick on of these bad boys up. I'll give it a 10 out of 10, for the fact that it does what's meant to do, be lighter.
Tippmann A-5, Red Hot power Tube, Delrin Bolt, TechT Cyclone upgrades (all of them)
Polished internals, Spring upgrades, Flat line barrel on occasion, And now the TechT no kick back hammer!!!! Running on Air. E-Grip WAS board.
NO KICK BACK, Steadier aim and ease of installation and no problem on Crono.
Need more time of use to find something.
The NEW TechT NO Kick rear hammer goes in with very very little effore and requires no upgrading to the spring set that comes stock with the Tippmann A-5. Unlike previous hammer replacements, this hammer not only reduces or should i say eliminates kick, but it lightens up the marker and aids to a steady aim on full auto firing. Past attempts resulting in the rear hammer not cocking back into the ready position and pissing alot of us A-5 upgrade junkied off and sending us back to our cars to replace it with the stock set. I have not yet taken her into battle but cronoing and target shooting has produced happy results and I am anticipating a fun first game with warmer temps.
GET THIS PRODUCT!!
I have to recomend this Hammer to all A-5, 98 C and BT players. If you have upgraded you Tippy and think like me "damn, ran out of things to add" Think again, Here is another fun addition to the marker and it makes a NOTICABLE difference. BIG DIFFERENCE!!!
