New forum but no hard facts???

Ok so theres a new forum for this marker but no hard facts.

How about the developers post some facts about this marker and not teaser pics and marketing ads?

I think we all want to know from A) A DLX rep or B) A SP rep some hard facts.

Efficiency?
Weight?
Battery life?
Retail price?
Barrel threads?
Feedneck threads?
Detent type?
What loader is reccomended?

All these need answers. Real answers. Not so and so said so.

As I posted in other threads, a lot of these guys just got off the plane from HB and are leaving for spain tomorrow.. Their top priority is not answering your questions on Pbnat...

alll guns "have no kick" we need to know how much.
we need to know th eefficency.
very quiet isnt a rating. we need comparisons to other guns.
assume. we need to know if it can handle ultra evil that will break from 1.5 ft after spending the night in the freezer.
that dun help.

And it will walk your dog for you too...
You dont need to know the efficency, because its irrelevant in todays paintball world. If your still paying $/K fills then this gun probably isn't for you. It has more then enough to get you through any 7 man game, or any xball 2 points.

Ever shoot a shocker till it was out of air, and then the solenoid gives that no kick soft almost dog fart noise. Thats what it feels like when its shooting.

If you are putting paint in the freezer for a night, once again this gun probably isn't for you....

They took a more logical approach to the gun... If you have 2 minutes to wipe off your eye, or clean a bad blender of a ball otu of your gun in the pits, or have a detent stuck that needs to be fixed on the field.. You can do it with this gun..

We are in the final stages of testings of the production prototypes. Once we have the numbers down, I will post them. I do not want to give you all numbers, and then go back and change them.

Don't take this the wrong way. i rly appreciate u giving us info on this gun, expecially since u've given more info on it so far than everything else put together.
But efficiency does matter in 7 man. I've loved shockers for a long time and have had a few in the last couple years. I've rarely used them in tourney since, i couldn't get them to shoot 9 pods and a hopper without drop off in the end of the 8th pod.
Do u have any idea on the internal workings of the gun? Is it anything like the digrams in the 08 shocker thread? Is it a rehash of the shocker bolt kits, or are there major changes in the way the gun fires?
Again, i rly appreciate the info and apologize beforehand if u already said somewhere that you don't yet know these things.
