Spyder has a short slide show on the markers they are releasing at spyder50.com 2010 the line up from what I understand is supposed to be released.

Talking to Brandon again today, .68 isnt going to be phased right out until there sure to .50 is going to work as they expect. By the sounds of it though .43 likley will be. Should know more after he has his meeteing with procaps in the winter.

Well, they're .18" smaller. That's a huge difference when you're designing things with tight tolerances. If you'd need a new breech size, new barrel size, and a new feedneck size, it'd only make sense that you'd need a new hopper size. If you have a gravity fed hopper, it MIGHT work given you modify an insert for the feedneck of the hopper... but then again, the companies manufacturing these markers are making smaller feednecks on their markers to incorporate the entirety of smaller markers, so it'd only stand to reason that a standard .68 cal loader would be too large.

Yes you can argue that lack of chrono showing and other "empirical" testing items were mis-performed [on video] but it shows exactly what I've been saying all along...the .50 cal sucked 20 [well, 15] years ago and it still does.
I rest my case.
