My understanding is AKA is not going to make either of them. The LCD isn't needed and the ACE would actually slow down the ROF.

The only mod is the Soda Can mod and that's only for Factory Teams.

I think this is a question for Sully. He knows the most about because he is the one that helped create it.

Sully, please enlighten him.

Sorry, but as I said above "The only mod is the Soda Can mod and that's only for Factory Teams. "

Currently it's only available for the Excalibur but Sully is working on it for the Viking. He is hoping to test it at the next ICC event.

Lol

As far as the ACE is concerned, the delay it adds is around .00125 seconds...not a noticeable difference, and it wont keep an Excal from shootin 13 bps. All it would do is end the pinches.

Just tired of people thinkin ace's are slow...

Sorry, but I was there when they ran the numbers...

A ball drop sensor WILL slow the excalibur down. They have to program the excalibur's bolt to stay in the rear position until a ball is fully chambered in the breach, and then switch the solenoid over to the closed position to close the bolt.

In a open bolt marker, a ACE is a useable feature, but why do you need one? It's just a crutch for poorly designed markers, or a marketing ploy (WDP Stated that ACEs are just a fad).

As the soda can mod is still under development, the teams testing it are bound to secrecy. AKA is very secretive about the products in the pipeline and will even go as far as building shrouds and "dummy parts" to hide test products. That's why some of you have seen strange attachments on the front, side, or back of factory team guns. We usually restrict testing to closed practices, but occasionally a test gun or two will show up at a tournament (people who attend ICC events know what I'm talking about).
