Smart Parts has a few new things:

"Linear" is the name of their new barrel, all i can say is i would hope its linear.

they are 40 bucks, and look like the ion stock barrel. I'd assume they are the same quality level of a teardrop or progressive.

New freak back look- I'm assuming the look will change for all of the backs, but currently all actionvillage sells is A5 version, in dust black, which i will get back to about. The old freaks had the word "Freak" cut out of the metal and only had one indent, the new one has 3. this may cut off some wieght for those trying to get every unneccesary ounce off of their gun, but other than that, purely asthetic.

Dust fronts for AA, and new look; Smart Parts seems to be moving all efforts to dust with their newer products (starting with the ion) which are all dust.
they have a new look for their AA barrel fronts, along with dust colors, currently actionvillage only has blue dust.

ill keep you updated with some new products and what pictures i can find until the tech gear is released early next year.



edit: Russian Legion signed with smart parts

ya kno ever since i saw the stock ion barrel, i am VERY cautious about buying dust or matte textured barrels from SP. i mean the stock ion barrel is dust textured and the inside is ABSOLUTE CRAP. its not shiney at all, but then look at the 25 dollar SP progressive and it is MIRROR shiney.

maybe SP just did a ****Y job on the stock ion barrel, but if i buy a barrel from SP it will prolly be polished.

JW if anyone else has this feeling........:confused:

I question the coolness of the Russion Legion (erhm, Boston Red Legion) Shocker....the 06 Dynasty was an ugly beast...hopefully the same guy that designed it won't be designing this new gun.

The milling on the Dynasty wasnt my fave, and the huge DYNASTY emblem on the side was fugly..other than that it was cool lol.

I just didn't like the "windows" on the bottom, nor the "arch" look it had just above them. I don't know, just thought it was Echhhh!

i doubt the russian shocker will be cool, commies dont know whats cool.

12-31-2005, 08:44 AM
the new dynasty shocker doesnt look to good. windows= ugly, but there is a nice cut out on the top of the gun that looks pretty cool. i think they should have milled the dynasty dragon into the side or something.

yes. that whole hating smartparts thing is over, anyone who thought that what smartparts was doing was horribly unethical has know idea how much large companies do that. when it happens to a small one (smartparts is small compared to businesses out there) that people know they flip out like it is the end of the world, but apperently it isnt.

edit: liked old dynasty mildly, new one looks worse but i still like it. ton ton - meh.

If you haven't seen Ryan's Dynasty, then don't talk about them. ITs freakin sweet. Me and chubbz got to see it up close. In person they look pretty nice, and his looked really nice with the lettering. First thing I'd do is send it to FBM for laser engraving and get Dynasty spelled in the windows.

I'm sure the RL will be nice though.

the one i liked best was the old style dynasty that got annoed white and had some anno tatoos on it, i dont remeber what they were, gucci maybe or dynasty annoed all over it. i cant find the pic.

edit: re looked at the 05 dyansty, all angles make it look better, i still wouldnt buy any pl shocker yet.

12-31-2005, 04:33 PM
I saw a picture of Ryan's Shocker...I will admit it looked better with the DYNASTY in the windows...like it was made for them. However, without the letters in the windows, to me it was EWWWWWWWW.....

I thought those were dye cut stickers though Ryan had, though....Apparantly, I'm not the only one to think that though, because RUMOR has it that SP stopped plans to make them due to the outcry against the design.

12-31-2005, 05:35 PM
can someone link the pic of ryans dynasty, id like to see it.

Not sure, but I think this may have been taken at World Cup in Orlando. It seems to me that the gun was being shown after that incident. Was Dynasty at World Cup?

the new backs would look good with SS inserts, but i dont really like the new AA fronts...

the only thing the aa's really have different are that when the front and back are put together they are at the same diameter.

yeah, but it just looks wierd because its not straight. itll probably look better when its put together tho...

Spokesperson from smartparts commented on the "06 Dynasty shocker"

he said the markers you saw were part of a 50 marker limited run of the 05 dynasty, cutting the fat. the new 06 will be released later this year. so for all of you holding your puke in, let it be known that they have given themselves a second chance.

hey, new update: the stange ion bodies no longer have the word "ion" cut out of the side... it was replaced with a three section angular thingy... well see for yourself... http://www.actionvillage.com/is-bin/INTERSHOP.enfinity/eCS/Store/en/-/USD/DisplayProductInformation-Start;sid=BkgzstmoKRIzUZppGCjzGtMODjlX6DQT8HU=?Pro ductID=qOrAqArb8mYAAAEI3OF97H2d

edit:

also as some of you may know, the all american front has changed for a more fluid look with barrel backs, and the aluminum freak backs have changed (although stainless and all americans stayed the same) it was announced that the freaks would probibly have a new look that is more fluid, and a 3rd choice of fronts or a front to replace the freak would be released, the 3rd/replacement (still no word which it is) looks like this, word around SPowners is that its the new freak tip and the old freak is being discontinued.

edit3: Euro team "Scottish Warriors" signed with smartparts, this is history, the first Scenario team in the world to be sponsored by a major painball company, they are shooting sp8's

The new tip will look good with AA backs but not the current Freaks. It's alot like a UL.

01-08-2006, 02:40 PM
I think the strange body looks better now but i dont like the new tip.

01-12-2006, 04:24 PM
i actually didnt notice the aa front, very nice look. i like the new back, but i think it needs a blue insert, and the gun milling brings the concaves on the freak too close imo.

Seems like Smart Parts is completely discontinuing the Adjustable Max-Flo's. Both Manifold and Inline. I assume this is becuase of the Micros, and becuase it's no longer on their website.. Who knows. I searched it on here, and I found no results.
