New Dfender high-end scenario marker from Empire

I am sure Empire will be dropping all sorts of info on this new marker so check back often and we'll keep updating the first post.

The Dfender is the new high-end Empire bullpup style marker with a built in hopper that sits right above the tank. The gun and hopper are made mostly out of magnesium. The gun and hopper electronics are synched. The gun comes with a lid and a speedfeed and two freak barrels.

Here's some sneak peek phone pictures we took behind the Empire compound to give you the first look at it. Sorry about the picture quality. The low light made these first photos pretty rough. We'll update with improved pics soon if you guys don't find some and add them to the thread!

Feel free to add more pics or details!






With a 68 tank on it:





The top easily slides off to get at the hopper and the feed tray.








Inside the hopper

I'd sketched out something very similar in about 2005, and knew the hopper tech wasn't ready for it at that time. Been plotting a buildup ever since, but it's awesome to see the idea (which I know has been around a few years more than my thoughts on it) come to market. Very cool gun, and a great meld of all the components that go into a paintball gun, especially a scenario gun.

Axe drivetrain, Z2 guts inside the stock with space to hold a 68/45. Loader is synced to the eyes/board.

It looks really cool and reminds me of a bull pup like a P90 or AUG. It's interesting to hear that the board and loader electronics are all synched too. It looks like this is based on the Mini/Axe bolt like the TM series no?

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.
