I was looking at those. How much does it cost? Can you compare it to anything, like did it shoot like a bushmaster or anything? Also do you know what the board it capped at? PLMK

I've anxiously been awaiting the arrival of these markers and wanting to know how much there were going to be selling for. It is a NICE looking piece of hardware. All I have heard is a bunch of hearsay about how it will cost twice as much as the impulse and offer similar performance. I love it when people talk about stuff they know nothing about....

I've only seen a little bit on this marker, but it does look promising. I'm also VERY glad AM decided to make this a true electro instead of another battery powered sear tripper. I have a few questions first though.
How good is the efficiency (about how many shots could I expect from a 68ci 3k psi tank)?
How much kick is there, compared to a Mag, Bushy, or Matrix?
Will there be any other trigger styles besides stick?

i seriosly talked to the guy about it

says shot grpuping is very similar to a cocker.

says if u call him and order he can get ANY ano desing u want made up for u for only 40$ more

lightest gun ive ever held

has an incredible sweet spot. i picked iut up on the spot and could really rip w/ it. and the guy there could REALLY rip w/ it. so w/ practice u can really get it going.

some kickback since its so light.

i didnt ask about efficency

opperating pressure arounf 300 psi

i have his buisness card around here somewhere

Just to follow up on the cost of anodizing a different color on the Diadem, it would cost about $170 for a special fade or splash. As far as efficiency, the Diadem gets about 700 shots off of a 47ci 3000 tank. It is really a nice marker that will give the competition a run for its money.

This gun will rip right from release. At IAO we were wailing on the thing to no tomorrow. Throw your finger in the breech and bounce the bolt back on it. Can't wait to shoot them next season!

So basically, this is a super fast, super efficient, super compact, and super chop resistant gun- Sounds Nice! I may have to start looking into this.

It basically is a sentinel with a new milling style, ram, solenoid, reg(s), and electronics that will run off of a 9v. Having shot it a few times it's quite unlike the bushy/impy setup. I would definitely keep an eye on it.

As far as upgrades, any cocker barrel, any angel threaded feedneck will work. Though I would just stick with the vari-grip feed tube that it comes with. It has your standard holes for mounting any bottomline, drop, or cradle system.

Anything else is pretty much speculation unless stated by an AM employee, and any of you AM guys please correct me if I've got anything wrong.

later,
Greg

Ok, I guess that's not the LPR. Upon further inspection, it looks like a LPR is mounted on the ASA, with a hose coming off of it to go through the grip frame (which I'm guessing leads to a solenoid/ram). I think I'm starting to see how this thing works.

About the lpr, the front, lpc looking, part is the velocity adjustment. It may or may not be on the production models as it may make for an unecessary point of vel adj if they are alread doing it through a reg, ect.

And I can say from talks with some of the people making these the lpr will not be placed off the asa after they do the first run or so, and I don't know 100% that this is where it'll be on the firsts. It may just be on the demo, maybe. With any luck there should be a pretty cool reg on newer versions.

From talking to the guys at IAO, they mentioned the possibility of relocation of the LPR (priority soon), as well as eventually (down the road) the battery tray.
