Macdev Gladiator- Macdev is an awesome company!

I am definately happy I ordered from Macdev. I was a little apprehensive about ordering from a company in Australia because of shipping time. Shipping charge was only $12 and the package arrived 3 days after I purchased it! Not only did I get a great product, but I also received it quicker than I do from most US-based companies at a comparable cost.

I had the same experience. What made you decide on the Glad? I thought that you didn't like it??? You thought it was too big, as I recall...

I did think it was too big from your pictures. It is actually surprisingly small. Rather, it is a good size; nice fit for my hand. I decided to not go with the ANS reg after I started being critical about the reg. It just seems that it would be uncomfortable and difficult to hold the gun by the ANS reg. Also, I've heard so much good about the Gladiator that I thought it would be worth a shot.

As it turns out, I was right. Now, if only the reg had a darn gauge on it!

Well a little bad news for the Glad. Seems like the set screw is relatively easy to lose. My popped out sometime this past week and when I gassed up my gun to shoot a few rounds today, my marker wouldn't shoot and I realized I had lost the set screw.

So...be careful with those set screws!

Shipping from macdev!

Heres sum news for all ya'll. The reason the shipping was only $12 and only took 3 days was because all orders placed on the MacDev site are shipped out of Gramps and Grizzlies in Riverside, CA. They are the main US distributer of MacDev.

That may be so...but mine came direct from the Aussie empire (per the fedex mailing label)! I also ordered a Macdev tank cover and gauge with my regulator order that came in the package.

I'm pleased

Did you get a mac dev guage? They are pretty accurate COMPARED TO MOST OTHER PAINTBALL GUAGES. Just to let a know most panitball guages (especially the mini kind) are pretty off but will still give ya close estimate.....dont get me wrong.
