doesn't look like it is unfortunately.

With how low the feedneck is, there won't be much (if any) room for a bolt pin (in regards to the bottom of a hopper). Unless the bolt uses a thumb drive on the back, much like the new Bob Long Premium bolts.

I'm gonna agree with this, Alien had a problem with this same thing. Makes it difficult to hit the rip drive/shark fin trigger. I think only the pinokio was seriously hindered by it... but who still uses a damn pinokio anyway?

Im really hoping the ergonomics are a big focus on this, I just couldn't get into the GT and previous models because of the way they felt. Thats all a personal thing though.

Agreed. Not the best looking reg in the world, but extremely comfortable to hold.

Id rather a properly spaced reg that needs a $10 reg cover to feel great over a great feeling reg that just isn't spaced properly.

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.
the ICD promaster is a chopped up SP impulse. so they all stole everything from smart parts!!!

Well if you want to get technical... the Promaster was based off their previous marker the Bushmaster which came out prior to the Impulse. But that is neither here, nor there.. I'm excited to see the Cyborg make a come back.

I don't see how a Promaster is internally like an Impulse? But that doesn't matter, this thread is about Macdev.

The previous cyborgs had an enclosed bolt, but still easily removable. Look up the RX if you are unfamiliar.

James from MD had told us the GTi upgrade was actually supposed to come out for the Cyborg RX in 08. That's how long he has planned on using the sensor and color screen. They just didn't like the sensor originally and wanted more testing time. The new borg will bring a ton of new stuff to the table. I cannot wait until the specs are released. James has something up his sleeve and it's going to be good.

MD QC is really good. I know here and there are some oddballs. Also keep in mind most macdev guns are designed for LP / SLP tanks now. That's why when people use 800+ psi regs the internal gaskets can (sometimes) blow out, or ASA problems occur. SLP on the clone's runs perfect. I expect the new cyborg to be SLP compatible right out of the box with no problems.

Expect a top notch product from MD when this bad boy comes out. Even though we just have an outline here, I'm somewhat satisfied we got SOMETHING out of them haha.

And my guess is this will actually have a closed bolt. I thought that was the best part of the RX besides the tool less ram sleeve assembly too. Idk we shall see in due time.

I don't understand all this reg grip crap. It isn't like you're gripping the thing like a handle bar... and if you are, you're doing it wrong.

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.
