I heard the valve o-rings of the GT.....

AAAAaaah.
Amusing for sure, but can you say any better about Dye/Proto or PE?

At least Macdev makes a very limited product line and then doesn't screw around like Dye does. Everything MD has done is to make their stuff better and better. Dye pushes a new gun out there and calls it better when it's just the previous years design with slightly different milling. Same for Ego.

Most everyone is doing straight line hoses now days. No macroline means nothing to me. I like being able to put a different ASA on my gun if I want. Every hoseless design precludes that option.

I personally look forward to the GT. Macdev ALWAYS delivers!!! However I really wonder how they are going to beat the VX. I think if someone is going to build a spool valve that gets the efficiency of top end poppets, it will be Macdev!

I think I would buy one site unseen!

My theory anway. Better than no macroline IMO
Better wet dreams too! I wonder what else they will do while on their knees?

It's either a Gas Through grip or just another design on the bolt/lpr.

Love my clone soooo much. Only 2 complaints.

Polish bolt stock.

Put an asa that doesn't leak 2500 psi every time I gas up. Lol

i think if most companies brought back an old popular modle of theirs, it would sell. i'd buy an old ego6 or a dm7 or a borg 07. honestly, older guns were better imo. had the same internals as today plus a little beefier so they don't bend in half as much. speaking of bending, didn't an irregulators player bend their 07 frame? lol.
Yeah turns out if you want to pole vault you must need the Borg PV model.......it's not designed to stick barrel first in the ground to hop over the trenches on our field!

@rkenders: I was just pointing out that the name of the models could be better. It's easier to say if the 06 board is compatible with the 07 version than other non sequential alfanumeric codes.

As already stated, the GT will be fully incompatible.

I think MacDev should be careful here.

No need to completely redesign a good thing after doing that thing for years and years.
Aka don't make this a DM/NT situation.

Excited as **** for this though. Pics nao

If macdev was going to make a new platform it wouldn't be called "clone" anything.^

It wasn't so much of the pole vaulting that bent the frame....but more like the landing! After planting the barrel in face of the trench berm he then did a forward half gainer/twist and used the gun to cusion his landing.
The team mare who was already occuping the trench however did not have a sturdy '07 Cyborg of his own nor did he see his quickly approaching car wreck of a friend coming from the sky.

He landed on the Cyborg, and the poor fellow in the bottom of the trench as well as a Tippmann A5.

The friend suffered no major injury other than slightly swollen testies and a loss of will to continue playing that day...the Cyborg trigger frame bent pretty good of to the left which made it great for really tight bunker play when snapping out the right side! It was still fullynfunctional...just bent.
The Tippmann however suffered catastrophic failure to the left receiver, cyclone feed and barrel. It never saw another game.

The Cyborg was repaired using all the original parts by our own tech wizard Bouncer and has since been purchased by another Irregulator...and is still in use today...I mean who in their right mind would get rid of a black '07 Cyborg?!

And if anybody out there wonders what happened to their black Borg after they traded it in on the purchase of a then new Droid to our very own timbertiger20...there you have it!

Tough...as...paintball.

haha, i just found that thread.
just bought a local black 07 for cheap and the internals were way more dirty than that one. didn't gas it up to see if it still ran like that. went straight to tearing it down. frame's ok tho

Probably the reason the tippy died is they are cast and the borg is machined from aluminum billet. Cast metals tend to be brittle.

That wreck would have been interesting to see.

Look at it this way, i see way more VX'ed clones then i do True VX's i think its just because of the simple fact that its cheeper to buy a VX'ed then it is a VX so their making the GT so they can gain more profit, which i cant really blame them for


on a side note please bring back the 07 borg style and feel

i just want another damn cybog.

like i said, can md please make a limited run of slightly updated 07 cyborgs? i know they'll sell. everyone holds onto theirs.

07 body, frame, internals. bolt similar to pooty modded, no rise clamping feedneck, sythe trigger, oled board, newer grips, cool annos like the older 04/05/sonic borgs, etc.

please, i beg you. my life would feel complete. i already have one 07 but i'm not satisfied with just one.
