Drone 2s

Anyone got any news on the Drone 2s? I was just on MacDev website and seen it. I can't find anything about this gun except it is softer on paint and $575.

Gold bolt is suppose to be softer on paint

Metal internals to stop the issues with the delrin can

New reg parts to make sure it purges and can use over 550 psi I think. Correct me if wrong.

Will it be able to run at 800psi now?

Yes, but why make the reg work harder than it needs to?

Anybody got their hands on a Drone 2S or the red drive shell upgrade? I want to know if there is any difference in efficiency or shot quality or both.

It doesn't change anything. The metal can is simply to stop people from crushing it accidently.

Sure about that? Quote from macdev "Increased flow to the bolt switch area, resulting in a more powerful, positive shot". I wonder if anybody who shot both the Drone 2 and the 2S and can feel any difference in the shot quality.

I am not sure if you'd feel much, but the real issue is that temperature effects delrin much more significantly than it does aluminum. Putting critical seals in the delrin can was a bad design choice from the word go. I have no doubt this is a worthwhile change. Given the choice, the 2S is MUCH better and is no doubt worth the price difference.

What does powerful, positive shot mean?
