MacDev takes a stand against ANSGear

Upon the news that ANSGear was advertising and selling MacDev's Clone GTi under MAP. MacDev decides to take a stand by not offering their products anymore to ANSGear.

This is the final MAP violation from ANS, as a manufacturer we have decided to take a stand against this type of behavior which ruins the industry, cutting out dealers and destroying resale.

After numerous warnings from us with zero response, we hope other manufactures will soon follow suit as they have similar problems with this company.

ANS will never have access to MACDEV products EVER again.

There will be lots of new products coming up and they will not have access to them no matter what carrot they dangle at us.

Wonder if anyone else will follow suit - there was an uproar with DLX when ANS did a similar MAP drop.

Good to see that price fixing and threatening to comply with such measures has finally been legalized again.

This is awesome.
While it may seem like cheap stuff is great, in the long run it hurts paintball by making it more difficult for a manufacturer to sell their product at a profitable price because people will just wait for the product to drop like this.

This seals the deal for me: Bring on the new Borg =D

Also, GT's are 1399 and GTi's are 1099 on their site. Whats the deal with that? Seems almost typo-ish.

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.
