i'm pretty sure at this point, .50 cal is still an idea. Definately not ready for mass production. Lastly what are you gonna use to shoot your box of .50cal?

It's not really an idea. There are people getting ready to sell conversion kits and markers as we speak - it's been in the works AFAIK. It's about to just start up....

I am sure I can find a Crossman 3357 somewhere. Besides, I'm going to weigh it first

And the .50 paint you'll find right now isn't the same stuff, from what I can tell. You'll find what amounts to blowgun paintballs, which are not great balls. If you really must shoot a .50 ball right now, through a Spotmarker or one of the old .50 caliber Snipers (anyone else remember or know about those? ), then you're likely stuck with the blowgun stuff. New formula .50 will be released under the GI Milsim brand, and Kingman is planning on .50 of their own.

I asked that not really looking for an answer. I already knew what you'd say. And as was already written there are no kits available for .50cal. PE's is a sample but its not available for purchase anywhere.

I'm willing to bet that you didn't as it was stated that they haven't been produced and aren't for sale at cup.

They have been produced (at least one we know of) ... if it was for sale, I doubt that

But considering there is a .50 LUXE at Cup and paint being said to only be $20/case .... yea

Yes. The problem is that you're directing him to buy garbage paint that has nothing to do with what is going with GI Milsim.

I'm not saying that the GI Milsim paint is, in fact, any better, but for their claims to be even halfway true, it has to be totally different than anything that has existed to date.

I guess he has to wait until the experts at GI Milsim come out with thier special paint.

Didn't know it was garbage paint since I don't shoot .50cal and it was a good price for the quantity. Just trying to help.

I found my one of my old accts

That's fine, but this is part of where all the anti-50 hysteria is stemming from -- people assuming that the NEW 50s are the same as the old 50s.

I believe GI Milsim HAS the new paint at WC. It's just not for sale in stores yet.
