Well, MacDev typically releases markers for $1050, so it might drop to that at Cup without the barrel. Who knows. I'm perfectly willing to drop $1250 on a gun like that! Planet Eclipse'd charge $2g's for something similar (*COUGH* SL8R *COUGH*).

Correction, what it looks like is another stacked tube poppet design marker. Sure there are going to be similarities between this, the ego line, timmies and all the others, but spoolies will be spoolies and blow-backs will be blow-backs. If you look into the actual drivetrain of this marker you will see the great improvements/ innovations made. also, including the USB port on the board, allowing for home flashes and, I'm hoping, computer based changes could be huge alongside the OLED.* I think this marker will be a great success and give props for listening to the MacDev fans and giving them what they want.


*i understand neither the USB or OLED are the first of thier kind, but the fact another company is bringing them into play is a great step forward in my book.

Agreed. I wish I could find the blue UL milled one that I saw on PBNation. It looked exactly like this and I saw it and freaked because I knew the new Borg was going to be like that.

*searches*

Ah, you guys are taking this too seriously. I was only talking cosmetics - that's all. No need to analyze it - remember, I had the droid and completely reviewed it when it first came out. I know what MacDev is capable of and what they do...I still have the 11 page paper I wrote for a magazine on this very computer!

All I know is, I want to get my hands on one. After that point, you might see a lot of my guns (besides my pumps and the ION) up for sale - in order to purchase this gun.

Ted, after I get mine, I'll let you borrow it for a month... of course, you'd have to give it back.
