You really have to be old school player or a fan of old school guns to appreciate this thing. While it may look simple compared to today's stock 3d milled markers its based of marker that came from a time when stock guns were just square bricks or plain tubes, At that time this style milling was mind blowing. I personally don't feel that the eye covers flow well with the design(although matching eye covers would probably add $100+ to the price of the marker) and don't like any of the colors but I applaud Boston Paintball for bringing this back on a modern marker. This marker is for those old school guys that had one or may not been able to afford a Boston Paintball Twister in the past and the newer players that that love old school custom milling but are to new to have had a chance to buy an original Boston Paintball Twister Autococker, for them this is THE marker.

Nice, would loved to have seen some asa milling too but its a good start for sure.

That stock picture probably does it no justice.

Quite a strange combination of traditional milling style on a very modern marker. I much prefer the PL dynasty Geo 3 style, but the nostalgia and unique factor would make this a pretty good buy. Either way, kudos for even more PL markers Eclipse.

Looks fantastic in Pure. Shows off the milling better.

I wonder what a polished version would look like. I know its difficult not to totally round off the small sharp edges.

But enough about that, back to the milled LV1s; Why didn't they mill above the barrel threads? I assume they were provided pre-milled blanks....that area seems thin enough on its own.

I was wondering the same thing, and came to pretty much the same conclusion, there must not be enough "meat" there, even on the blank bodies.

Pretty cool looking gun overall. It might be neat to see matching eye-covers, but they'd probably be a bear to do, and cost a pretty penny to boot.

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.
