MacDev Drone 2: Shooting Video
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tt9rWZn3EGM

Hey all!

I was at the MAXS TDOT here in Germany and I got to take a closer look at the new MacDev Drone 2. In this video i give you my first impression of the marker as well as take it apart a little to show you the eyes as well as the core. It might surprise you how close this marker is to it's older brothers. Enjoy!

Just did man, and I appreciate it! The marker shoots very nice and the bolt is so simple and easy to maintain it REALLY surprised me. I'm not just saying that either, this marker and the Etek 5 have really bridged the gap between mid-end and high-end.

What im really curious about, is the bolt. Is the bolt itself delrin? If so, the new gold bolt for the Drone DX is not compatible with the new Drone 2?

EDIT: Nevermind, its Aluminum!

Yes, that was my mistake for not mentioning it. The can is made out of delrin but he bolt itself is made out of aluminum. There are only four different orings on the entire bolt assembly. Talking to the MacDev distributor there will be a gold bolt released for the new Drone 2, there is not ETA on that, however.

Mid May? Website says March 20th, which has passed. I was hoping to start seeing videos posted of them.

Got a problem with your gun? It's probably an o-ring or lube issue

Ok, the wait is stupid. I'm an old guy and this is one of the very few guns I've actually looked forward to. My concern is what is the shot feel? I didn't care for the dx shot. Liked my old vx and gt.

As a believer in macdev products, I am a little perplexed the release date for this marker. I made the preorder arrangements, and have been relatively patient, however I have not heard anybody say when these might be released. I was hoping for March 20, but was told they had not even left Australia yet. Then told some time this weeks, and no word on that. Now this brief comment about in a couple of weeks. I understand that delays happen, but can somebody from Macdev provide an update about the delays, or perhaps a link to a site that provides updates? I may end up with a PE just to have something to play with.
