The damage was fixed - they bought a reg, to me that isnt' a bad deal to get a gun of that quality for that cost and have to buy a reg.
2nd, It is hard to factory test everything, especially things that are only somethines a problem. Every manufacturer has had some problem that need a fix afterwards. Again let me say that the gun design has always been good. The '05 Remains had a few problems, the '06 less and the Remains only had an LPR O'ring that we had to replace on the first batch and some set screws leaked on a few guns.
All of these guns now come right and we have learned what it takes to make very reliable guns. Most players have used our guns without any problems and I get a lot of good feedback.
All you had to do was go to our local tournament the XPSL held in Las Vegas a couple of weeks go to see that all guns have problems.
The last day at that event one of the chrono refs came up to me and said that the Alien guns had been the most consistant over the chono and he thought had had the least problems - the spool valves being the worst in the cold and very dusty conditions. Nothing in it for him to say that, but he wanted me to know.
Point is, yes it would be great to never have problems, still Alien are reliable and if some people had to replace regs on our gun, that costs half of what an EGO does, that isn't such a bad thing.
