Ah so it is made by CCI... That's the best news I've heard yet! I had my suspicions; that thing looked familiar. Any reason why Mike opted to go with the old style welded centerfeed style neck rather than the newer, adaptable stock-class to centerfeed bolt-on? Cost? Or is that still to come?

And don't hang anything on reputation; mags are a little tricky. Recent issues aside, PTP had damn good quality control in their hayday and still dropped the ball a few times even when they were working side-by-side with the guys at AGD to develop new products. So did AGD themselves for that matter. You can get away with a lot more in the way of tolerance issues when you're dealing with a Nelson valve system on a daily basis - no slight against CCI, they do a damn good job. Most mechanical marker designs are more forgiving; modern EP guns too.
