I have to jump in here. Please don't make it sp threaded. If you do, leave mine blank and I will have it icd threaded when it gets here. ICD>all other threads.
The old ICD quad thread was great, one of my favorites, but it was worse for coming out in my opinion then the impulse thread. Loved it. Part of the reason the Impulse went with the coarse thread, to compete.

Quote:
never had a ion threaded barrel come loose on any of my guns (pimp,3 ions,luxe) but almost every cocker barrel I own on almost every cocker threaded gun Ive owned has
I have had plenty of cocker barrels unthread, but not so much after I started putting o-rings on them. Which was still way before the Impulse came out.

But part of this decision has to do with the distance of the barrel. With a stacked tube gun the barrel length covered by the threads affects the placement of the front of the body. In this, I need more volume on the front of the gun, so the longer cocker barrel helps me add volume without making the gun look ungainly. And I like cocker barrels. I have a ton of them. An impulse would be shorter and I would need to have a thicker body (I wanted thin) and a taller body, and then a larger foregrip, and, and... So it is cocker for a while guys. Maybe if I build a fat spooler. I agree the cocker standard is not the best. But right now it is the standard for more guns then not, and it helps my gun get the volume I need without making it look funny.

No.

Josh I had emailed you guys last week for pricing, any idea when I might expect a reply?

Thanks!
Where did you send it? We lost some in the sales@j4pb.com folder junk mail. We are not releasing pricing at the moment and will not be until we are ready for pre-orders, which will be in about 4-6 weeks if all goes well.

If you knew how much we are enjoying holding out on you guys, and how many people are asking, and how!? It is fantastic. I suspect it will leak, but we told everybody slightly different prices, so I am curious which number is first...

They didn't have lurker last time
That plus Jack will be a wicked combo I think. When people start understanding what is in that gun I think there will be quite a bit less complaining. Same goes for the feel. It is a good gun to hold, looks good to shoot also.

Sounds like the back block of a cocker when it's shot but this gun totally reminds me of sandridge where a lot of it was auto timed.

Well, there is something to that. The Sandridge concept was applied to a very complex system compared to this though. This design runs with a single input and there is only 1 variable it needs to time, and then, it just has to get enough... The Sandridge was far more complicated because it needed to be. Not having the parts designed and integrated, but instead they were strapped on reduced the reliability of what was really a brilliant concept.

The surprise even to me is how few designs (none) have done this sooner.

I was messing about the ICD threads. I would love them, but the system is a dying one.

Side note josh said I could tell you I held the protype mule different than the one I shot looks much like the final gun just blocky
Looks really cool blocky but holy crap it is light for being blocks and the way body goes together no way you can misalign. It sits very perfect in your hands just right where u want it when you pull it up. Can't wait see finished milling.

We expected to make a dedicated mech gun at some point in the future. Also 2 companies talked about a mech version licensing rights and a drop in kit for this initial gun would be extremely easy. So something will happen, but not immediately.

If I didn't hate the stacked tube form factor, I'd be all over this. I see a lot of potential in the design and can't wait to shoot one.

The price is right! Do I get the washer?

Right now we are on schedule to get you guys some guns and related. So far quite good actually. I like some of the options we are running with the board and battery, and quite happy with the changes we are making. We can't wait to get this in peoples hands. It is such a fun gun to shoot, we really want to give you all a chance.

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
