My local shop was going to sell them. They ordered one in to have as a demo marker so people could try .50cal at walkon events, but first time out it blue the solenoid and a bunch of orings.

Once it was working, it was fine. Strange way to do the velocity though - using the up and down arrows on the back, I believe.

Honestly? Don't spend the money on it. Get an Etek4 + .50cal kit.

The regulator is in the grip, so it's a standard clockwise/counterclockwise rotation with an allen key, not up/down. It shares much of the design principle as the 09 Impulse in that regard. I would venture a guess and say that someone at your shop was messing around with the gun and had the reg opened all the way up and just over-pressurized it.

Essentially, the Nano is a fancy macroless .50 Ion. It'll be the best feeling/shooting .50 gun, that's for sure. Should be about as reliable as any Ion/Extcy/whatever other iteration of Ions there are.

Hmmm possibly... especially if they thought the up and down arrows controlled the velocity...
Looked at the 2 page 'manual', deffo is a velocity adjuster at the bottom of the foregrip... no idea why they didn't notice that!

I have 3 sets of nanos haha. 50 cal is honestly awesome. with a hopper and 4 pods your easily carrying 1500 rounds. each pod can hold up to 300 rounds and a rotor can hold 400. there are trade offs to 50 cal, one it doesnt shoot as far, but it feels soooo good to be able to stay on the trigger for what feels like hours haha. and instead of the paintballs coming in cases of 2000 it comes in cases of 4000 for 40 bucks. Let me know what else you want to know! and I havent had any problems with mine.
