Yay, we're making PBNation history!
Seriously though, the Epic has always interested me. I really wan't to hear some more about it. It sounded really awesome, but some features kept me from buying one (gas guzzler, can't get a new bottom-line).

if i remember right, the msrp is around 400 - 500 dollars.

the triggers are either single or double, and it comes stock with a CP barrel.

the regulator is stock, right under the grip frame, and it is suggested to use compressed air. the gun comes in right or left feed, but here's the catch that makes the gun what it is:

the feed tube has a "trap door" that is activated when you shoot, to eliminate blowback. this door switches on/off to let balls feed in, and it was a unique design.

it would be great if it had a a.c.e. system tied into the trap door to enable faster firing and an electronic trigger would also be needed, plus the ability to use what ever df you want.

I read an article in APG about this...Sounds Cool. Bet the kick is not exhistant. I think it said it runs at like 400PSI maybe less..which is pretty cool. Im just wondering, when the trap door opens, the ball excellerates, is it it possible for another ball to fall into the breech and catch some of this air?

this is interesting. it's basically an closed bolt gun without the bolt, right? now this could be thrown into the debate of open vs. closed bolt.

If you read the specs the gun fires from a "closed breach" there is no mention of a bolt!

Yep, and thats what makes it so unique. After they finally get all the kinks worked out with this gun and finally start making upgrades and what not for it, I do believe that will start to see other bolt-less guns being made down the road, everyone will start jumping on the bandwagon to own a bolt-less marker.
