New Shocker inbound? Leaked pics from Texas Showdown

The most recent Texas Showdown video seemed to reveal a few screenshots of a newly milled Shocker with some additional changes from the XLS. It was being used by someone in the AC Dallas camp I believe and maybe indicates a possible GI/SP collab?

I was just watching this too and noticed this. It looked like a shocker but I couldn't tell for sure.

Mark Johnson seemed to be shooting the same thing in black.

My guess is it’s a new Private Label version, but I’m not sure.

If it’s a new Shocker then I hope the Bolt System is radically different.

The milling reminds me of the Hybrid SFT and the HK RSX. With the XLS parts it definitely looks like a PL rather than a new model. Maybe HK XLS or GI Edition?

Fingers crossed for new, more comfortable, rubber grips on the frame. The rest of the the new stuff they changed and added sounds good.

Being that the AC guys were using them, you would have to think it is a GI edition, considering the super deal they have with the Empire and GI brands

They couldnt figure out how to penetrate the US market, and they got awful efficiency, like 4-5 pods on a full tank

I've never seen efficiency that poor from one....what tank size are you referencing?

Just like the DP G-series, there's no supply shutoff so there's a good deal of excess gas lost to venting. But, they're simple, reliable and absurdly quiet.

If you want to see a similar modern design (descendant of the Ion DW Hollowpoint), the MacDev Infinity drive added a supply shutoff and has similar volume.

^^^So if you remove the inner Can 019 supply shut off Oring and turn the Dwell up a bunch you can essentially tune the Infinity Drive to shoot like the Regency Chrome?

Mark Kressin has a video on tiktok of a mechanical shocker ( the new one most likely ) shooting at an absurd speed. Thankfully someone shared the video on Facebook. Im wanting to see what style asa they go with and if they changed the milling up front- if the body is flush with the barrel now or if it still has an overhang of material covering part of the barrel.

Also... At the field hardly anyone cares about the background and origins of the designs for these guns. Once the drive is revealed here Im sure there will be groans. If the gun works well the masses will buy without a care. Just saying

No. And even if that was the case, there would be no reason to turn the dwell up a bunch. The dwell only needs to be long enough for the chamber to dump, which occurs in about 10ms in the Infinity.

The Infinity doesn't shoot like it does because it has a supply shutoff. There are differences in the valves and venting that create the differences.

Eh, imped... kind of depends on reg recharge a bit too. In the case that the chamber is never isolated, the open path may essentially act as if there's more chamber volume which, in turn, affects the valve dynamic. Interestingly enough Charlie, before the infinity drive was out I posted in the MD forum with a mod for the drone 2 valve that turned it into a modern crome2 (which I owned at the time). Someone had one made and was running ~90psi operating pressure or so. MacDev essentially up-cycled the drone... you know after stealing the IV core design.

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.
