When you're a kid and your income comes from an allowance and/or mowing lawns and/or doing chores... A pair of used pants for $30 is amazing when that same pair is $70-100 new.

Been there, done that.

I totally understand that. I've been there. But you use old pants and save money for the pants you want. It's so much better. Like I said I've been there. That goes for every peice of gear.

Is their repair/warranty services still intact and running? Heard that it was in kind of a disheveled mess and guns were being help up or not being fixed. Ive sent guns there before and have had great luck and service but that was a few years ago.

It is an improvement but they need to respell onslaught on the onslought page. No big deal tho. Just a heads up. Not trying to be a spell check Nazi.

Question.. Are all of the G6R's a two piece gun. I had a tacticool and it was a 2 piece gun. Shot great with no issues but that always wierded me out a little. And yes I know that is not a real word.

Thanks for the feedback guys. Onslaught spelling is fixed. We have plans for the website, but are pretty busy trying to get things caught up as well as working on some new stuff. I'd love to do it all at once, but I'm having to pick and choose projects. We appreciate all the support we've received, and are looking forward to an exciting 2017!

I dunno, but everyone he saw with a BLAST gun at the clowns vs. zombies he was grilling hard. He wanted to know what the average player thought of them.

I didn't know Alex Craig's was going to do marketing and stuff for Bob long. I had my G6R at the Clown Vs Zombies and Alex said loved my slash design. At first thought it was kind of weird since a planet guy and was shooting a 169-R.... but now I now and makes sense.

The average player thinks Bob guns are stupid.

Phenomenal guns.

But $900 for an MVP?

Look at your comment. Back to mine. Back to yours NOW BACK TO MINE. Sadly, it isn't mine. But if you stopped trolling and started posting legitimate crap it could LOOK like mine. Look down, back up, where are you? You're scrolling through the comments, finding the ones that your comment could look like. Back at mine, what is it? It's a highly effective counter-troll. Look again, MY COMMENT IS NOW DIAMONDS.

The problem Ive had with some of the newer markers.
I totally get their usual pricing structure. The MPV doesn't fit that and I think its why it was always a harder sell.
lets be honest the surge of pump markers was a fad. a very lasting and fun fad, but it did fade for the next thing.
The MVP was late to that party, and it was priced higher and had some minor issues out of box. Im glad they
ironed them out, but if you're going to go up market, you have a tough competition if you're introducing a new contender.



The g6r sold a plenty, then they went upmarket with and improved concept,
and then higher with custom milling. that made a ton of sense. and they sold.

If you start a base platform you're going to build on, and price it up market, its going to be a very long sell.
If the base g6r was over 1k, I wouldn't have bought one at tine release as I did. Same with the phase, onslaught,
and the slew of singlet tubes that followed. If the company can produce a base platform that out performs the
competition, save the flash for the big money later on, I think they will have a market cornered.

Pump ain't a fad in Canada.

MVP's make sense at $700 like they were priced last year. $900 sounds to me like they just don't wanna make them anymore.

Too bad. It's my fav pump ever made, (and I've tried them all) you just have to put a different-than-stock Oring on the blast guide to stop the fart sound.

Fad is the wrong word.

Its more That it saw a huge surge of popularity and kinda stayed popular, but its clearly not the current popular style of play. The word, Fad downplays how popular pump still is.

I think mag fed may be the current hot commodity, if you will.


Regardless. my point is the direction of marker pricing of whats to come.

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.
