(These were found via Google. I do not know which are authorized dealers. Hopefully DP can clarify (or give us a full list).
MAP is $430. If they advertise less than this it is NOT an authorized dealer.
Just arrived and took some pics:
1 Piece Barrel, Allens, Orings, Cheap-o Barrel Bag:
Appears to be the same board as the iQ:
New RAPS (BARELY fits with the Myth Regulator):
Sorry about the crappy pics. I will try to get more when I have better lighting.
First impression is VERY good. The milling on the gun looks great. It is small
and light and feels very similar in my hands as the Threshold. The grip/reg
spacing is similar, but there is enough room to (barely) fit my thumb between.
The gun "feels" thinner in your hands due to the contours of the body and the
slim grips. I really do like the shape of these grips. Almost
feel to them. Very comfy and a bit tacky. In the thin area I would guess
they are as thin (if not thinner) than acrylic grips. Flush eye covers area
small change that I like a lot. The Threshold ones just seemed out of place.
Same reg as iQ with (lockable) swivel at the bottom. New feedneck and new
RAPS are great IMO. Both have extra long levers for easy use. No more
difficulty opening the RAPS (and it does fit with my Myth reg, but if the
threading is off it may not fit others). In person the hook does look alright,
but I think I may use it without. One piece barrel with the same porting
pattern as the Fusion. Should be a bit quieter than the stock Threshold
barrel. Appears to use the same orings on the bolt as the Threshold. The
have the venturi design (like the iQ).
And my favorite part: the trigger! By far the best out-of-the box trigger I
have ever felt, and one of the best, period. I loved my Threshold trigger, but
this one is even better. It alone would be enough reason for me to pick up
this gun over the F8. It is a great shape and the stock spring feels very
good. The board on this gun appears to be the same as the iQ. 6 dip
switches, 4 for modes and 2 for dwell. Unfortunately I did not get a manual
with my gun. FYI, I have SN 004.
I will have more pictures and hopefully videos up this weekend! As well as
comments after I have actually shot it (I have dry fired it; so far, so good)
