Since one eventually always brings up patents when discussing the Gardners, it would be interesting to see if Colin Bryant Moritz has anything to say about this new marker:

Patent US6990971 - Pneumatically amplified trigger actuator for a gas operated marker gun - Google Patents

Not directly applicable, but it's the first patent that came to my mind vaguely similar to this marker.
This looks like it is the G-Force trigger frame I saw quite a while back. Can't find the same site now, so maybe they are gone.

I think this is a good thing. I like mech guns, and simplifying an electro like this is appealing. I'd like to know if they have a pulse valve in there or if the bolt is forward for as long as the trigger is pressed.
