Hey Laz, if you scroll down the page you can see an actual picture of it with the stock removed like you were wondering about.
I saw that T. I don't know the more I think about it the less I'm in to it...
1. It would be cool to be able to shoot FS and then switch over to hopper on the fly but if you have to Chrono the FS at 280 as soon as you switch to your hopper you'll loose 20 fps from what people are saying. Shooting 1 or 2 guys with a FS isn't worth putting myself at a disadvantage against all teh other guys I shoot at with normal paintballs.
2. FLASC recommends that you use a .687 or .690 bore size when shooting FS. So you'll be overboring as soon as switch to PBs. Last time we played I chronoed in with the stock FX barrel which is overbored and then swtiched over to my Scepter which was bore matched. I was 276 +/- 8 with the stock and it was at 330 +/- 3 with the Scepter (Dave called me a "cheater" the first shot over big red). Say the least I won't be going back to overboring, I even broke down and have a SS freak kit coming in because my old Scepter maxes out at .682 and most of teh newer paint seem to roll out.
3. It' kind of step in the other direction than I've been heading. I've been following the lighter and smaller road and this is way bigger and heavier. It makes my old Cocker look like a paper weight and that was a beast (it still rocks but its still a beast compaired teh Shcoker and FX).
4. At $1,300 its pricey. I figure for '13 I have 3 choices for my big budget item; a Remington 12 ga Versa Max, a Ego 11, or a DAM. To be honest I'm thinking the Versa Max this coming year and the year after that a new Ego.
It should be interesting to see what other companies will do though. Kingman now has a mag feed, BT already has the TM15 and TM7 lines so I'll bet money they will make a FS mag feed soon as well based on thier TM15.
Gaa that was a lot bigger that I expected.
