Yeah, sorry guys but the demand for aftermarket products for the Defiant 2 just isn't worth investing in and tying up funds for upwards of 10 months.

At first sales were going as planned... Slow to mediocre but pretty steady.

Action Village was ordering a dozen per month and we were selling about the same Through our site but then the GEN4 Timmys were unveiled and sales were at a stand still literally for over 4 months. At that point and time Donnan & Myself were stuck thinking if we should abandon our D2 customer base and concentrate our efforts on making products for other markers and after a few weeks after the GEN4 Timmy craze died down a bit a few sales came through and the interest for our bolt was once again sparked.

So... We decided to give it one more crack at it. It’s been almost a year since the last 75 bolts were manufactured and it’s taken this long to sell 75 of them. Too long to continue our efforts for your guys’ beloved marker. For whatever the reason may be, the Defiant2 Owner is less likely to spend money on upgrades which is why I never even bothered showing what I felt would’ve been the ultimate D2 Upgrade. That one would’ve certainly raised the level of the Marker ever further but at a price point of around $65-$75 it would’ve just been a waste of money & efforts . So for the time being it will be just a sketch.

Right now I am concentrating my efforts on the MARQ and hopefully the first product will be ready to test soon.

I will never say never but for right now these bolts are done.



ROB.

I'm gonna go out on a limb and say it's a balanced poppet valve?

I would've bought one of your bolts eventually, but I just got my D2 last week and am currently broke. Oh well, guess I'm stuck modding the stock one (or cooking a new one up myself next time I visit a lathe)

You would be wrong sir. I find the D2 Valve is fine as is but the shortcoming is the Reg type & locations/geometry. The Product I have in mind would open up a whole new window for what this little marker can do.

And I run an Alias Sleeve & Poppet in my Timmys and I chrono just as good if not better than Balance Valve/Sleeve configurations so I really don't see a point to them and the D2 is no different.

You guys and your damned RESALE... It's like the biggest Joke already.

Will My car's value go up if I put som 24oooooo's on it?


Absolutely not. Get over it.

One upgrade alone will not yield a higher resale value. It'd have to be more along the lines of fully upgraded to yield a higher resale. And why am I even responding in this way? These are Markers (Tools which we use to try and eliminate members of the opposing team on the battle field), NOT, I repeat... NOT Investments.


Pleeeeease stop asking that question? It quite boring already.

word, I hate when kids ask me if their Ion is good enough. I'll be like "we'll does it shoot straight?"
"Yes."
"ok, , then its good enough"


Though cars are considered antiques after 20-25years, so mabye my defiant2 will be worth alot in the year 2042.

Oh man Rob, I've got this antique wrench set. It's like all rusty and corroded, and the ratchet action is stiff and unreliable (especially compared to the new ones), but it's a CLASSIC!!!11!!one! Do you think resale will go up?

Seriously people - resale on mass-produced markers (as in "more than 50 or so made") goes in one direction, and one direction only (and for those of you who are slow on the uptake, that direction is down).

Get over it... You asked the most annoying, ridiculously overly redundant question in the history of the Nation.

It's just exhausting at this point.
