Tell me about the ZIP kit!

Ok this is the last major upgrade i plan to get for my gun. It probly wont be tooo long before i try to get it BUT. I'd like to know some stuff about it.

Is the trigger frame it comes with fully ready to go? Like can i put it on a mech spyder and itll have all the electronics in the grip? I just didnt know if you had to transfer anything.

Is the VA that it comes with threaded to accept other regs like the palmers that i already have??

Can I add a Micro Rock to replace the LPR?

can i use my maddman rocket valve instead of the one it comes with?

and last but not least: how does it work? how it is it "always cocked"?

People that have it or know about it or any reviews just fill this thread up. i'd like to know as much as possible. it looks exactly like The One kit, which i also dont much about. thanks

1. Well, yeah and no. Nothing needs to be transfered from the original ESP. You replace it with the ZIP Kit frame and then hook up the hoses (LPR to frame, frame to ram cap)

2. The V/A is threaded to accept other regs (i.e. Bob Long Torpedo, Palmer's Stab, etc).

3. I don't think but I could be wrong.

4. No the gun uses a different style valve (non-blowback).

3 yes just get an adaptor and you can use and cocker lpr
4 yes but youll need to plug the blowback hole and it wont help any the valve in it has the same proportions as a lightning valve
5 it works like a bko a spring returned stacked tube electro pnumatic

its the one kit with upgraded electronics it saves your settings when you turn it off

that should be all you need to know i suggest it highly

Is the VA that it comes with threaded to accept other regs like the palmers that i already have?? Yes, any reg will fit.

Can I add a Micro Rock to replace the LPR? Not sure, but i've heard you can.

can i use my maddman rocket valve instead of the one it comes with? Probally not, it comes w/ a valve and cupseal to fit.

and last but not least: how does it work? how it is it "always cocked"? Yes, its a spring-assisted electropneumatic.

People that have it or know about it or any reviews just fill this thread up. i'd like to know as much as possible. it looks exactly like The One kit, which i also dont much about. It is the One kit replacement, i'm pretty sure they stopped production.
I bought a Zip Kit a few weeks ago, I'll be glad to help w/ any Q's and I have the AIM s/n to the sole tester and manufacturer.

okay i'm wanting to know if the zip kit has the same threads on the va as the one kit, b/c the adapter says it works for 'the one kit'.

the zip kit is the new version of the one kit, which was discontinued. I think it operates around 300psi probably lower. Assault block won't work since u need a lpr. Well.....u could run it w/out a lpr, but i dont know how safe that would be for the noid.

it turns a spyder into what is bassically a bko. Spring assited ram return. Makes it electro-pnue. New board, hpr and lpr, valve, new frame. Everything u'll need.

t1? i know theres a zenitram adapter for 'the one' kit, but over in that official zip kit thread, people said it didnt fit the zip kit, and the zip kit threads on the va equal the size of the spyder va. so i guess i'm looking for some adapter thats not out yet or some solution.
