Their website claims designed, made, assembled entirely in America. Not sure if that truly covers everything.

He mentions here around 2:40 that his guns are 100% American.

I was surprised to see even the grips are stamped 'made in usa'.

I'm not calling Bob a lair. I have seen that video and heard him say it multiple times (he likes to say it every chance he gets haha)

It's pretty hard today to get a product similar to a paintball gun made entirely in the US. Most nuts and bolts are manufactured over seas along with the raw materials that go into rubber grips. In addition most aluminum is mined over seas.

But if Bob did it kudos to him, but just because something is not made in America doesn't necessarily make it a poor product. (not saying you said that just adding it in).

You mean assembled in UK but made in china. If you ever get a chance to see the containers the parts and equipment come in youll see on them "made in china" youd be shocked at how much money they make based off the cost of the finished product. Macdev has some of the best quality and tolerances of any company out there. Id take the aussies engineering over the taiwan engineering anyday. Quality over volume always wins IMO.

Bob is 100% usa, believe it or not smart parts was like 90% us made, they had a company in either taiwan or korea that did the composite work for them. Rest was all parts made in house or by a us company.

Also alien markers are made in taiwan. Jack confirmed this when he said spurlock was making the parts for him, in the same factory the vapor is being made.

Vanguard markers are machined and assembled in the UK. There was a video showing this somewhere which I'll try to track down and edit in.

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
