that front guard just kills it...


You mean the shroud around the barrel? Because there will be other styles available, and you can also just take it off altogeter...

EDIT: Geez, I just checked exactly what the bore size was on the paint I was using on Sunday and it's a loose fit in my .679, in fact some of them roll right through. Damn XO paint. And when they're in the barrel you can clearly see that they're not even round, they're actually quite elongated around the seams. So that's probably the reason my Borg's consistency went down so much, rather than because I dropped the dwell to 7...

Next time I play I'll experiment with 5ms and 6ms dwell :laugh:.

I am not too sure about the gas through grip...I do believe somebody has that patented.

..then how does BL have it, Empire have it, and SP have it???


They could be paying the patent holder.


P.S. it still could be an mq'd pump ;)

This is a late and somewhat off-topic response...but...

My macdev pump :D (I don't have it anymore)

Cyborg in PSP 30BPS Ramp with a dwell of 6ms (earlier two vids were at 12ms). I also have a video where it's shooting at 5ms but it's too long and boring to upload I think. Not sure if I got video of it but I got it down to a 4ms dwell and it was still shooting fine, but then I tried dropping it to 3 and it didn't even try to cycle. When I bumped it back to 4 it wasn't shooting right and I didn't feel like trying to get it working there again (LPR was really cranked up to have the dwell that low).

That is one thing that irritates me about scenario markers, they almost always only come in black. If they come in olive then we are lucky to have some variety.

I have the ability to change the overall color..we have an anno guy on our team. Does alot of the paintball anno work for Absolute Finishes. So yes I could make purple happen.


Looks like the first 15 guns to hit the country shall be in MD USA tomorrow or Thursday.
We have paid for 6 of those Drones! Then 2 more are going with MD USA to the Paintball Extraviganza...the other 7 to dealers around the country.

We should have a few out of the second shippment for our team as well.


As soon as we get them pictures will be sure to follow!

Valveless Droid? So it's a Threshold/ Hollowpoint/ Rev-I/ Ion/ Crome clone? Ewww. I mean, yes, the design can be tweaked to be downright excellent. I don't see this being excellent, though. At all. I see it being mundane, unneccesarily 'dressed up', 'faster and easier to maintain', but less efficient, less smooth, louder, and just overall a disappointment. MacDev dropped the ball on this one, hard, is my preliminary guess. I could have seen so many more interesting routes for them to take.

That said, at very least 'valveless' means it is most likely not a Matrix/Shocker clone, which I can appreciate. ...so why is it so long?


We'll start the *butt* kissing with ---- you!

Seems it IS a rather simple 'dump-valve' style spoolie, like the Threshold, Hollowpoint Ion, Geo, and the like... however, we've all seen what the design is capable of with even mediocre finishes and regulation, so I could see this being a very capable marker, to say the least. Efficiency is only 1400 per 68/4500, or about 2/3 of 'optimum', but hey... overall, seems to be a lot of gun for the price.

What makes this better? Look at the gas routing, for one. The bolt never actually leaves the stem, which is a drastic improvement in design. High-five, MacDev. Might actually be as smooth as a Droid. The dump volume in the back is... odd. I'm curious as to why the complex back cap/can assembly, unless they were worried about a poor surface finish on the body. It will make abused guns much easier and cheaper to repair, though, as compared to an integrated body-milled bolt guide.

I'd love to see a stripped down, plain-milled $500 version. I realize the reg is worth $60, the board is another $50, and the barrel is yet another $30, but I'm not seeing that gun costing much to make, past those parts. Very efficient design, as far as machining operations required.

You never heard that from me.



I have been begging for a bare bones no frills gun since I started in the sport. The Phantom is the closest thing I have found to that desire.
