Also the fact that Bob is continuing the production of the intimidator shows that this "new technology" isnt really as revolutionary as he was telling everyone.
just a thought, wanted to know if anyone else shared my feelings.
Well, Bob repeatedly said the new gun was an inline poppet type design. On many, many occasions, I have heard him say "its a Timmy at heart". However, when he says new technology he is accurate there too. No other gun uses the same radial type poppet valve as is implemented in the Onyx. A valve designed to provide the same linear air flow of the spool valve designs, with efficiency of the ram/poppet design. No other gun uses the quad eye (my words) technology, or even attempts to mimic it's true function. And, no other gun has brought us a way to drop the loader down onto the gun so far, yet still allow the use, and benefit from the strength of, a full and un-cut loader feed nipple. These three traits alone are very functional, very unique features seen for the first time in the Onyx.

I am not trying to be an *** or bash you in any way, but I want to tell you that Bob delivered EXACTLY what he was saying he would, and then ADDED some things on top of it. If you were led to believe something else, you were listening to the uninformed and your expectations were unrealistic.

That would definitely suck if you wanted to play hookie and call in sick and go hunting.....Oh, wait. He is the boss....NVM!

As for disappointments...it is just not being very patient while waiting for us non-techs to be able to get one and be mowing faces with the big boys. Congrats to all you that already have one.

I'd like to shoot this gun. Looks nice, but it's nothing revolutionary.

Ah. I forgot about the quad eyes. The air flow is cool. I retract my statement. This might just be my next gun, if they can make them look nice with ripper milling.
