You know what I meant, there are also a lot of guns that use well over 200 psi to fire a ball. I was simply pointing out the reason so having an lpr on a gun.

While watching the video in HD on a 22 in moniter I also think that that back cap is a Push and Pull design. The middle of it seems to be a button.

And the design of the bolt itself can be altered as well...

as far as people wanting the LPR, i have shot older markers smoother than a DM9 (that didnt have LPR's)... if the marker Ollie is shown holding is the same in the vid, it says Dye on the side...


perhaps NT is "No Title" for the sake of creating hype and suspicion....

NT is definitely New Technology. It even says it in the video description.

For people that love to tune their markers, the LPR is a god send. Yes, it is true that you don't need an LPR, but without it you can only tinker with the dwell and the HPR pressure...so you are really limited in what you can do.

yes and no...

with the adjustable manifold and other possible ways to control the forces of the bolt, i think LPR's have seen their time... this of course only works if they have the correct sizing on the areas that the pressure acts upon

That comes down to overall weight as well.

I'm not sure how fond I am of the adjustable manifolds in the Luxe and whatnot. I still find it much easier to adjust an LPR. But if that is the direction that things are going in, than I will be more than happy to change with the times.

certainly not implying it is the better option to not using an LPR, but it is effective enough to earn my dollar...

I just dislike the use of an LPR when there are effective alternatives to them...

Looks nice. Doesn't look like they're following current paintball trends like putting room between the finger guard and the reg for your thumb and removing the macro line... Would of liked to see these things..

The spacing between the frame (backstrap) and reg isnt for the thumb so much as it is to allow the user to hold the marker easier. Extending the distance creates a more stable muzzle while running and gunning...
