Quick question: After reading the AGD Q-Bow description, it seems that it comes with Five Q-Pods, the Helical feed system, the Q-Bow marker itself, and a 16" barrel. My main concern is over whether it actually comes with the five hundred round Q-Loader system or if the description writer was just saying that that amount was good to carry for the worst case scenario.

I only ask because I was under the assumption that it only came with one Pod and no barrel, which would another 100-200 dollars to the 909 dollar price tag, whereas I could get a complete blackcell q-bow, 500 round system and 16" stiffi for around 800 dollars. But if I can get the complete AGD package for only a hundred more, than theres no question as to which one gets thrown in the cart.




i was wondering the same thing

wakewarrior says it does, but if u wana b sure, call Spec Ops and ask



the Q-loader comes with a CP 16" barrel and the Q-loader setup is 500 rnds...meening 5 q-pods

meening $909 for a complete setup.......if you already have HPA that is...if not you will [b]need a tank
Feedback! plz post if u havnt yet... Thank you

if you can afford it get the tac-one. it is better than the ion in most aspects other than affordability. The ion will get you far for little money but in the end, you get what you pay for.

i have to ask do u need a n20 tank for a longbow or can u use co2 becuase i might get one for cheap like 300



for the record, its N2, not N2O... N2O is nitrous oxide, and its not a good idea to try and run your gun off of it...


Anyway, having never owned either gun, I can't really offer advice of much use or credibility. However... My buddy has an Ion, and it seems like everytime he tries to take it apart he ends up breaking some stupid little part. I've never heard anyone having problems with simple parts like banjo fittings and stuff on a Tac-One. Plus, I'm natually biased against electro markers to begin with. Just too much to go wrong.

I've heard some nice stuff about the Tac-One, and I know it may sound ridiculous, but if i can find a St!ffi for it, then I'm definitely getting one. Some help here? Anyone know where to find a St!ffi in AGD threads?


Edit: I just found out, minutes after making this post, that the Tac-One uses Autococker threads.

Alright The Ion I believe is universal for cheaper, If you put the vision board on it with the money u save from not bying the tac 1 it ups the accuracy and eyes. I have an Ion and shot about 1200 rnds, no breaks. With the trigger adjustment, The Ion can have a quick pull to walk for speedball then slap on the longbow , and pull the trigger out a little bit and u have a nice but not to touchy consistent trigger.

If I'm not mistaking the tac one has moving parts when fired? The Ion dosn't therefore if u fire someone won't see ur moving gun.the Ion is light only 2.2lbs w/o air and hop.

To answer the questyion of Co2, Its ok if u use c02 with an anti-siphon tube, for those of you who doesn't know what those do, they stp the liquid of co2 from coming out and freezing gun, The n2 makes it more consistiant because u still get the velocity spike of co2 whats it gets going, so for sniping definatle n2.

Hope this was Helpful

The tac one uses a cocker tread for his barrel,

I put together a Qbow, (tac one w q loader) very expensive, and let me tell u, its heavy.
the Tac one its a better gun because of its simplicity, accuracy, the no need of batteries, thats really important in woodsball, no problem with the rain, or heat, no extra weight for spare parts, etc. And dont leave the money out of this, its true than the Tac One its more expensive, but u are goint to expend the difference in paint, and very soon, because the Ion its an electro and shoot more paint without u notice it, if u see this from that point of view, than the money problem its out of the window.
Now About set up, I didnt like the qbow setup (not the Tac one, the setup) because its was really hard to aim, why?, the stock its to high and for fast shooting u need to line up your eye with your sight in a fraction of a sec.
and if the sight its to high from the barrel level, then its the zeroing problem to used right, thats why I took out all the qbow setup and came up with my own, lighter, more acurate, and wit a lower profile to avoid more welts in my head.

An Ion that can surpass a Tac one costs as much as a Q-bow...and even then..it's still close.

I'd say....buy both if you can afford them!!!!

But they are both gas hog's from what I've heard....

no contest AGD is better (if your only running stock setups) . ions are not gas hogs. i myself own an ion and i will be getting my long bow kit (not the q-bow kit) so i wont be walking the trigger. if you ahve the money go with the AGD if you fall into a puddle and get water in your ion your well fried because i dont think there water proof


if you think i am stupid and dont know what im talking about your probely right
Come on guys hes only got a pump!
