So your saying the entire series of guns based off the new body and internals will be ONYX. The Marq6 is just this first run?
Thats the opposite of how i read it. But i only know what i read on the internet?

Bob said the gun is going to be the onyx... marq6 was the name given to a line of products. The barrels, regs, asa's etc.

Ok but the Bob Long Direct site refers to a Marq6 Series and the Onyx would be a version of that series as say an Alias is a version of an Intimidator.

I just tried to look at that site again and looking at the other gun listings the have Dark Series listed and 06 Intimidators. There is no logical way to sort this out. Advertising and logic never have anything to do with one and another. Oh hell it don’t matter I’m gonna get one no matter what the hell he calls it.

Can you guys look into this a little more?
It really makes better since to have it be an Onyx version of the new Marq6 body and mechanics.
Look at it this way their was an Alias Intimidator but it was a version of an Intimidator. A Defiant 2 is a Defiant 2.
An Empire 2 is a gen 4 version of an Intimidator.

If there are going to be other PL or BL guns come out at Cup or next year wouldn’t it be logical for them to be different versions of Marq6’s not from the Onyx?

I understood the Onyx name to be a reference to the black out paint job?

Wait, I'm a little confused.

Let's compare the Onyx to an Alias. Is Onyx the platform or the specific model revision?

Is it correct to say:

Alias=Onyx and Intimidator=Marq6

or not?

And if so... wouldn't it be better to name this forum "Marq6"? Otherwise, I could see potential problems when the... uh... "Obsidian" or whatever the next revision is called comes out

no timmy's are still being made, zack long said that they were going to have 6 or 7 different versions of this gun whatever you wanna call it, of course when they do come out with different colors it will be stupid to call it the onyx which refers to a black stone

Umm people are still buying Gen 4 Intimidators, The Gen 4 Intimidators came AFTER the Ego came out. So its still selling, if Bob did not making the Gen 4 Intimidator then thats is probably the end of the line. But there are still tons of Intimidator enthusiats (sp) out there

Jack Bauer once went into a bar, and asked for a 'Jack Bauer'. He received three shots of Jack Daniel's, a shot of kerosene and four shots of tequila mixed. When seeing this, another man approached the bar and asked for a Jack Bauer. He got a 9mm round to the face.
