why people are complaining about the looks is beyond me after seeing the ego lv1 thread .

Anyway macdev please make a decent semi-trigger while your changing everything. Heck just head over to violent, give them some tim tams, and make an aluminum version of their trigger. That'd be icing on the cake since they've come a long way to addressing all the complaints over the years.

Unless he made this statement in another thread, which is very possible, his above comment doesn't say that. He's saying that this gun has to compete with both the g6r and the lv1.

I can tell you right now: it will need better grips and it will have teething issues.

This looks promising but I haven't been impressed with macdev's QC recently. Not saying that this is going to be an issue but it make me a little skeptical.

Finally someone got it lol. First things first I fed the troll which I thought he was just another Pbn punk haha. I haven't shot the lv1 I'm just expecting it to be better than the Ego 11 since lurker and pe made the drivetrain. An the g6r with lp poppet is so smooth. Old Borgs are amazing so most importantly macdev has to top that, and I got news for everyone, they will make it better. I love my rx, one of the smoothest poppets I've shot ever, next to the lp g6r.

Don't worry about qc, guns are made in Aussie and very well regulated.

Needless to say I am very excited for this and will probably end up buying this brand new.

Agreed, macdev guns are the ****. Their triggers however, are just ****.

Really hope to see them restore the Borg to its former glory, I'd love to see people mowing faces with macdev poppets again

Macdev clearly copied this off J4's design...

I'm not trying to start an argument or anything but as an honest question, are the Gt's made in the same place that these borgs will be made? The reason that I ask is because my Gt was the gun that had the QC issues.

It's hard to tell in the pic below because of the flash but the asa was a completly different shade of brown. It was either in a different ano run or made out of a different type of aluminum. Either way, it's not what you would expect after spending $1400 on a brand new gun from the factory.

The main milling line in the gun (the one that goes from the point of the back cap, just under the eyecover, and to the top of the reg) did not match up with the milling lines on the reg on the left side of the gun but on the right side everything lined up perfectly.

Lastly, the gun leaked from the factory between the asa and frame. Come to find out that the Gt (or atleast the one that I had) uses a thin metric buna oring that you would find being used as noid gaskets and not for high pressure air passage ways. I replaced it without any issues but I only got one of those orings in my spare parts kits and before I sold the gun, the oring blew again so I had to order more. Now I understand that macdev isn't the only company that doesn't include enough orings to completly rebuild the gun several times in the packaging but it's not a good excuse for any company if they expect the customer to spend $1000+ on a product. Furthermore, The lube that the gun came with only had a tiny amount that was stuck to the brim of the container (like if you took your pinky and stuck it into a giant tub of lube and then scraped it off in the container).

With all of that said, I am not saying that the Cyborg (or whatever they end up calling it) will have any of these issued but my past experiences with Macdev's QC has left a negative impression on me.

fixed. This is all I can assume, Macdev has called this gun their flagship line several times and it has been some time now before a new model was released (rx dropped in what 08?). The clone gt is at the absolute pinnacle of spool valve technology and now this will be the flagship? The thought, innovation, and overall work that must be in this gun has me hoping and praying that it gets out asap. It looks great, no paintballer will be happy with looks, if you change the looks its hideous (LV1) if you keep it classy then its a copy. Go see how many different looks you can get putting 2 straws on top of each other. I am excited as hell for this to drop!

I'm sorry, are you still relevant? Don't get butt hurt because you can't sell these at damn near cost and ruin the resale on these like you did the Vapors.

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.
