How can they take another companies product and call it their own? its completely absurd. They even shopped their logo onto the pistol.

Its just a private label Tiberius and has been out all most as long as the original. RAP contacts Tiberius for the markers and has them re-branded for thier own sales. Perfectly legal and above boards.

Just like Tippmann's airsoft guns, as well as their masks in their "power packs." Most are either Scott USA or Vforce. Not illegal at all, and not a dirty practice. They have permission to, and it's been happening for a while.

This topic's been discussed several times before. A simple search for "Blackbird Pistol" will turn up multiple (closed) topics regarding this. Supposedly, the Blackbird was originally the Law Enforcement version of the Tib8. It had higher velocities. Eventually, the name became popular and Rap4 got permission to market the civilian Tac8 as the Blackbird.

I'm going to close this, since the original question has been answered and there are already several topics on the subject.
