OOPS--flipped this image. The gun DEFINITELY only has one screen and it's on the left side grip panel while holding the marker.

Personally, I think the gun looks astounding. I thought the render was sick, but the real pics are even better!!!!

The sole reason for the delay, is the completion of the electronic section is running late.

We would like to assure our customers that we are doing everything we can to have the gun ready to ship, and hope people understand that in our efforts to develop something new, we have fallen into unexpected delays.

How long is a delay? In this case, the optimistic view is around 6 weeks. However, a longer, more conservative length of time would be a safer expectation.

We will do our best to keep everybody updated with the progress, because we are certain that anybody waiting for the Cyborg 6 will be rewarded with something new, something special.

There will be production prototypes on show at the "Paintball Extravaganza" in California and "MAX's open day" in Germany within the next 2 weeks for players to touch and feel!



Looks very nice from what can be seen...




Quote:
The Cyborg 6 will feature:
- Full gas through design (no hoses inside or out, or even half hoses)
- Matching soft grips on the front regulator, barrel back and hand grip
- Tool-less pullout drivetrain
- Soft tip, capped bolt for fragile paint and optimum air direction
- Dual transducer electronics for digital tuning
- Colour OLED screen and USB updating facilities
- Plug free frame to body electrical connection
- Proprietary, high flow, low power solenoid
- Easy turn venting ASA
- Shift 2 barrel system
- Clean, comfortable ergonomics, with lengthened front grip distance for stability
- High volume, low pressure with low recoil directed backwards rather than upwards for ultimate accuracy.
- Sleeved direct ported ram design that has always been the hallmark of the Cyborg, a high precision ram sleeve that protects your gun body

Macroless look with some Clone Gt flavor. Pretty sure it will have the latest GTi board. Low profile feedneck and new Shift barrel.

^That. My friend had an 06 (or maybe it was an 07 I don't remember) that was an absolute machine gun. Teammate had an RX that he liked a lot also. MacDev makes good stuff.

Looks very tall like the older cyborgs. I feel like the previous one was actually more stretched and not as high, but maybe this is just so short front to back it exaggerates it a bit. The lack of a front LPR is interesting. I wonder if its integrated into the bottom tube now, or if the whole marker runs at such a low pressure its no longer needed.
James and the crew at MacDev always make a good product. I look forward to seeing these on the field.

Uggh. There is no more originality in paintball. Obviously those Aussie bastards just took the alien invasion and slapped a Macdev logo on it.



Serves them right, because Alien just ripped off ICD anyways. This sport disgusts me.

So far I really like what I see! Just from the sillouette and the features that MacDev puts into their guns I know this will be the best stacked tube poppet of 2013.

Obviously we arent looking at the same gun here. Besides, if you dont like the shape then dont buy it.

The new cyborg is going to be insanely awesome and has the g6r to beat or be on par with on top of the new ego. This is gonna have a lot of badass electronics, gonna be super smooth too. This gun has been in the works for years and is macdevs super secret gun that they won't release until they feel it's perfect.

We need to ignore this comment.

Really interested to see more on this. Have always been a huge Macdev fan, even though i've never owned one. Go figure.

To be completley honest with you, Alien released their original ram driven line before the Promaster came out in 2006. Not to count the fact that the Lasoya Promaster wasnt out till 2007. The Alien Invasion looks nothing like it, nor does it operate the same as the Promaster.

The Pic in the OP's post is an intial digital render and could potentially look completley different by the time the real prototype is done.

Originality died along with cockers and mags. Not enough metal anymore and Im not really complaining. I will trade original look for super performance any day.

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.
