No, it is slightly different shaped.
The tippmann 98 egrip.
The tippmann 98 egrip
The standard alpha black is semi auto mechanical. The egrip is electrically assisted with full auto and burst.
Yes, it uses the US Army (alpha black) e-grip.
yep, the a5 and x7 and 98 tippmann response trigger, it runs off air and can shoot full auto.
yes, the rampage board simply replaces the stock board that comes with the e-grip
Just install the Egrip and the expansion chamber. Is what you can't do, the egrip frame comes too close to the tombstone to allow for an expansion chamber to fit, I'm trying to find a solution, did anyone find one yet?
Yes it can. One of the many features that come with the egrip are multiple modes. Not only is full auto in it, but so is semi, and three shot burst.
the stock tippmann X7 is literally the A5 with a different body, basically more plastic, and without the electric trigger. the X7 phenom is better than the A5 w/ egrip however because of its spool valve design and its ability to run full and burst on battery and semi without batteries.
98Shooter: I wouldn't recommend anything from the US Army series. Some of Tippmann's less desirable work, though they look cool the distance isn't near other guns. My 98 Custom outdistances it 6/10. If you are looking for woodsball i wouldn't recommend it, and i don't play speedball so i couldn't tell you for that.
