Macdev its coming

Thanks, Swamp. I really appreciate it.
And that's the only trouble with MacDev. Being based in Australia and not having millions to throw around, they don't get a lot of advertising out there, even though their markers are arguably in the Top 5 for most people who are familiar with them. That's partially why they brought on the Irregulators. By setting us up with a sponsorship and allowing us to sell their equipment, they have gotten some relatively inexpensive advertising and we are able to make people aware of them outside of the speedball realm.
Ok, a basic run-down of MacDev. As of this year, they have 2 markers they sell. They have the Cyborg, a poppet valve marker (similar concept to Ego) that gets 2000-2200+ shots from a 68/4500, easily the most efficient marker available. For cool factor, it has also been clocked shooting paint around 34bps and cycling w/o paint at around 40cps. It is also one of the most reliable markers out there. The 07 Cyborg sells for around $950.
Number 2 is the Droid, just released a month ago. It is a spool valve marker, meaning that it's a little smaller, a little lighter, and anything that could possibly go wrong is found on one piece and 99% of the time is an o-ring or lube. The Droid sells for around $1050.
At least for now, they do not make a mid- or low-end marker, primarily because they'd have to sacrifice quality to do so. Each marker that leaves the building is test-fired before being packed in its box so you can generally shoot it out of the box, although I recommend re-lubing it a tiny bit first.
Ok, this part I'm still a tiny bit fuzzy on so don't qoute me. The company's name is technically Mac Developments and is owned by Diane, her son Bourke (electrical and bio-engineer) and her other son James (production, testing and the face of MacDev).
MacDev also makes one of the best regulators on the market, the Gladiator, the Legion Air HPA tanks and the MatchStik barrel kits (which reminds me, I need to get a refresher on how the MatchStiks are made. The way they smooth the bore was pretty cool.)
Hope that answers your question.

It has something similar to lvl 10 (I should know, I was the intern who had to put his finger into a gassed up gun while they shot it) doesn't hurt at all. Kinda feels nice.
All my friends are mods now
