Thank you for being so patient and waiting for info on this years new release, a lucky few have had the chance to shoot and fondle this gun during prototyping thank you for keeping your mouths shut (i guess my tough man impersonation worked!) here is the official statement. Detailed info will be forthcoming..............



The designers at MacDev are proud to announce the beginning of a new era, with a new spool marker model, this time named Clone.

It has been a long two years since the release of the MacDev new generation spool valve marker - the Droid. During this time, many other companies have released spool valve markers, however to this day, none can match the Droid in terms of speed and air efficiency.

The new Clone will match and exceed the benchmark set by its 2007 counterpart, and will include an updated style, feel and features that represent everything you have come to expect from a premium grade paintball marker.

A protoype of the MacDev Clone is floating around at the Paintball Extravaganza (16th September 2009), and Clones will be on show at the 2009 PSP World Cup in Polk City FL.

Details of the new generation drive and other features will be available on the MacDev website (www.macdev.net) closer to the public release at the 2009 PSP World Cup.

The first Clones are expected to ship to customers early November 2009.


Figured I'd post this up even though there's little info available. MacDev is just so win.

And there will be no pictures for a while!


The gun they have out at the PBX in Atlanta right now is the prototype that they have been testing for months. THe final version will be different!

So if you see a picture try not to get excited. But truthfully, the folks who see the thing right now have to agree not to publicise it.

I jut got off a very long Skype conversation with Dianne from MacDev...I am very excited to see what was explained to me!


Sneaky buggers used the Drone to help hide the info on the Clone...brilliant!

Yeah...November is when the gun will actually hit the customers....just like the Droid and the RX did.

They will have a few at World Cup for the press to photograph and the players to touchy feely. PRe orders will start about then as well.

Then they will ship the pre orders firts...the to the dealers.


Oh...and I have 6 Drones sitting on my desk as I type...and no way to show the pictures I have in my phone!

If you need to get rid of one feel free to send me one. B) I got to use a macdev the other day, and all I have to say is that they rock. I am definitely going to buy one when I get the cash.

Never shot a MacDev. Figure I'd just poke the beehive with that statement.

Price is not announced yet. They are being marketed as a premium gun, however. I wouldn't expect less than $1000.

What's going to happen to the Droid when the Clone comes out? Because the Clone is supposed to be better than the Droid, so I would assume it would just be discontinued. Think there will be a big price drop?

Well...they just recently had a MAP price drop on the RX and Droid. So I would ecpect to see a price drop, just not for a while after release of the Clone.

You will see used prices fall here soon though as the tourny players scramble to get the new guns they want for the next season.
