Shroker got his mitts on one of the new Paradigm Pro markers and hit the field right away to show it off. Not too many of these have been shipped out so far. Overall I came away with a very positive impression. I can honestly say that Milsig improved their product all around. It feels very much like an Automag, with its sear actuated blow forward action.
It's quieter than before, with less kick, although some may miss that. They've put it on a diet, too. It feels noticeably lighter and better balanced, even with the big *** quad rail. I personally would stick to something smaller, like the 4" rail I've got on my ATS. The new magazines are pretty great. In the shooting video, you'll see Shroker shuffling his mags around to demonstrate the FAZMAG system, and despite fumbling a bit, the collars don't lose any paintballs.
I also got to test out my t3i rig a little...definitely room for improvement, hah. It's sketchy as hell sitting there when you know any second some random renter could cap you in the ear.
