Is there a possibility for Empire to make a new "Eblade" kit?
Don't ruin it.

If you want an electronic closed bolt marker, it should be re-done from the ground up with that intention. The E-blades, cool as they were, required a lot of liberties and had a lot of terrible design elements for what they accomplished. This is a mech gun, let's leave it like that.

There may be a closed bolt electro or two in the tubes somewhere. Let's push for those to come out.

But back to the Cocker. It really is great to see them come back out. They've been gone from the market for too long, and the playing community deserves good higher-end mechanical guns.
I guess. I think barrels are vastly overpriced. A one piece cp cost $30. For what people charge for kits/inserts you can buy an entire range of complete barrels to do the same thing. I'll never buy into the idea that the barrel system with the sniper is worth $160 even if that's what they charge for it. The other items are nice for sure, but I don't know if they cost 4 times more to manufacture than say it costs Azodin to manufacture a marker without them. I like the sniper but not $460 worth. I'm not that big into pump personally. People certainly pay lots more on other pumps though.

Hopefully the slider in this gun is top tier. The quality of that trigger will determine a lot on how nice the marker is to shoot. Will be fun to see the cocker become popular again.

Why not the new freak barrel kit????? IMO sell it barrel less for $400-$450 and they will fly off the shelves.

the only thing that turns shy's me away from this is that it's midblocked. you don't get that true cocker experience, but i might have to find a way to get one of these without the wiife finding out

I hope so. Closed bolt is so... "win". My main complaint against the Eblades were the grip frame.


Plus, my MQ2'd SR still works... even if the damn screen went out. I used the damn thing at World Cup this past year.

Any idea if the parts for the new cockers are compatible with the old cockers? But this is certainly the best news I've heard from the show yet!

But then, I'm still using my cockers from the late 80s so not sure if I need a 'new' cocker LOL

No that is incorrect. Shocktech bombs depends on the frame you are using(hinge vs slider)

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.
