What happend to the o5?

Hey guys just wondering, I am sure you all know about the o5, the spool gun with spring return that Odyssey was going to be makeing. I know, I know they wont be makeing it, so far I have heard that REX is makeing a SRSV (Spring returned spool valve, I just made that up) Now REX says that DP will be makeing the most efficent spool valve, and I cant help thinking that it will be the o5. Let me know what you guys think.

More info here.

From what I hear they dident, in the near future DP will be comeing out with a spool valve, and I think it may be the same thing. Only time will tell.

Yeah, I was waiting for that experimental cocker that Dragun had in the works to come out too, but that never happened, except for a few prototypes that got sold as they were going belly up.
Would be really cool to see it happen tho.

What is now (was?) being sold by Rex as the Type-R was almost the Diablo Reaper.

"Red Dragun"'s description of the "new Type R valve" matches exactly what the Rex Type-R actually has. Alas, he hasn't been on PBN since November of '04.

I wonder - maybe after the whole Odyssey thing fell apart, OGI tried to get diablo to snap up the Type-R (Diablo would insist on changing the name), and when that deal fell through the "Rex" company came and picked up the unmarketed OGI guns, slapped some consistent branding on them, and emptied out the inventory. They must have felt the Type-R name was good enough, and kept it.

The previous paragraph was pulled, word-for-word, out of my *** and is totally unfounded speculation.

oh gosh. Please dont even bring up the O5. ALL MY FRIENDS ARE IN THAT THREAD lol I miss them guys!

Anyways. OGI is not a company... it is the name of 2 merged companys. It stands for One Group International. It is a merger name of Odyssey and Diablo. After OGI died and the merge was destroyed... odyssey took most of Dragun's designs and put out their version of markers... O2, O3e/x, Torid X, Torid, O3m.
The O5 was up for design and an actual proto was made, but soon dropped. Why? No one knows. Probably bc Odyssey fell very short in the marker world and couldn't produce anymore markers or parts with their Thai company, which is why Odyssey failed as a company to produce markers period. Another reason why alot of people hate Odyssey.
O5 was put up to rest and never brought back up, until now. Now a blessed curse will haunt all of you for the rest of your miserable lives... Good luck!

As far as I know, Odyssey didnt have connections to Diablo until after they had tried to screw Dragun over on sales while dragun was floundering to stay afloat.

After OGI died and the merge was destroyed... odyssey took most of Dragun's designs and put out their version of markers... O2, O3e/x, Torid X, Torid, O3m.
Kinda. They were still merged when the odyssey lines were released. The dragun guns were still in production, when the odyssey lines came out.
Heck, my TES even came with an odyssey clamping feedneck and delrin bolt, straight from the Dragun company rep.

Wow Ryan you are right there are a lot of old people in there. Most I had forgoten, and wow oh do I remember the days. Makes me sad just thinking about it. But ya I don't think there were actually ever any proto types even made I believe that there were only cad drawings. A spring returned spool type gun does seem interesting though. Lets make one lol.

Odyssey never ever had ties until their death with Diablo. Thanks for the correction.

and yes, they were still merged for about 2 weeks after the release of the Odyssey line, but that didnt last long enough to even count as the thread was split to Dragun and Odyssey... and voila... here is the odyssey thread

No there was one proto type... they had it at an event with a blanket over it. I remember alot of ppl making a big scene about it.. but it was never field working order.

A Spring return spool would be very simple, and easy to make, I hope atleast someone makes it.

No problem.

see this is actually kind of news to me. I never knew that they were actually merged into one company. I had always believed that they were sister companies, under one parent company, OGI.
But then again, I dunno much about the origins of either company, other than dragun was originally owned by 3m, before OGI.

Crimony, all this corporate crap sounds like high-school teen drama.

All we need is a diary to get stolen, scanned and put up on MySpace to make it complete.

The paintball industry is very, very sad.

I know I'm bumping an old thread with this, but just in case anyone finds this thread in the search and wants more info on the Teen Drama involving Odyssey, Dragun and others, I found this in TESBaller's sig.

F.A.S.O.R. History

This probably isn't news to many of the folks here (even less so to DarkeWolf), but I found it interesting. There are so many players, and as the saying goes, you can't tell the players without a program...
