Markers confirmed for .50 caliber - READ FIRST POST BEFORE REPLYING

Hopefully this can be kept as a running tally of markers that will be available in .50 caliber. I'll have a few posts in here available for expansion, and the intent is to have the manufacturer and name of the marker, along with a picture. When actual photos are available, those will be preferred.

Also, initially, please bear with me, it's a work in progress.

NEW ADDITION - I will be adding the upcoming .50 markers to the Reviews section. For those who have actually shot, used, or bought one of these, I'd encourage you to take a look and leave some feedback on them!

10-19 Edit - PLEASE do not use this thread as a place to rattle on about the caliber, the merits, the problems, whatever. This thread is for CONFIRMING MARKERS that will be able to shoot .50 caliber ONLY. Other discussion can be had in other threads, and will be deleted here, and if it continues to be a problem, warned or infracted.

Got a confirmation on DYE that's trustable, or only rumblings so far? I haven't quite made it through the DM discussion yet (there's a lot of partial info out and about). Closed was just while it was being set up. Makes it easier to reserve/delete a couple posts to keep the top clean.

I guess I'll keep an eye out just in case it was indeed a different company

I know that Blast was working on their kits all the way back during D-Day. So I am sure to you they will show it off at Vegas.

Needs to be a correction. As per Nicky T, the .50 kit for the Ego is NOT available for purchase anywhere. That one shown is a prototype than can be produced should .50 become a reality.
But again it is NOT available nor has PE issued any statement of support for this possible .50 cal movement.

at 6:35 he talks about the conversion kit for the rotor, and being that chris has always had close ties with dye i think his word on what is going on there is pritty reliable.

Good call, although if the modern paint has different shells, the 3357 may not shoot it well. I hope it does, I always thought it'd be cool as hell to have a Spotmarker on my hip.

Agreed, I'd think Chris has a good feel on what Dave is going to be doing. Going to hold off on this one, though, as I'm keeping this one just markers for now.

Pump Scout, theres a video with Lasoya shooting the Nano, which is a marker specifically for .50 cal paint. No official pics though.

ProPB’s very own Brandon Mason had a chance to shoot the new paintball gun yesterday. Brandon raved about how accurate the marker shot, had no kick and that the marker reminded him of his Smart Parts Luxe. Rumors around the event indicate that one of the top pro paintball teams will be shooing it next season. Any thoughts on who?

Colors: Black, Olive, Red

Caliber: .50cal
Joules: 5.1

Cleanup done. Please keep this on the VERY limited topic at the top. This thread is for confirmation of markers and adaptor kits ONLY, not for discussing the pros, cons, prices, availability, and weather.

Brierpatch, please let me know when you've got one built and ready, I'll add you to the top at that point.

yup and thats exactly how I would have done it.

had some ideas on modding a locking sleve system should 50 cal be needed then a filler sleeve for regular 68.

is there any confirmation on Bob releasing kits for his past timmies? marqs?
