Thumbs up New inline Merlins from AKA . . . pics!

AKA attended the paintball confrence/UWL/scenario game at Three Rivers Paintball this past weekend. I was lucky enough to talk with Larry and Eileen (who are awesome btw), bought a regulator, and placed a preorder. They encouraged me to post pics of the new inline Merlin







These are just prototypes. The final versions will have slightly different backblocks and other small changes. All kits will all be unanodized. They come in 4 different detent styles; wire, standard cocker, duel detent, and one other that's similar to a spyder detent. The frames are similar to V2 but now have a trigger stop, SS set screws, and more internal milling for weight reduction. The kits will come with everything listed on the left paper in the last picture. Cost of the kits are $500 plus shipping. Preorders are around $100 now and the rest when the kits are finished. These things looked top notch guys.

Update: 8/19
Most of the preorders are ready to be shipped. You can call AKA and finalize your order!

I know this may sound horrendous but if I wanted to pump this
new Merlin what would it need?

Just a mini pump kit?

A CCM Adapter and a 2K Mini Pump kit. Unless you get a full bodied one. Then just the adapter and a 2K pump kit.

Definitely not horrendous. I actually asked the Alexanders that in person this weekend. They said that they are considering making pump accesories in the future. But for now, a Merlin pump kit or a Merlin adapter will work.

It's not horrendous, these things are just begging for pump goodness. Now when they come out with RF bodies, I'll buy one. A guy can dream, can't he?

I think I need one, white w/ black accents to go with my black w/ white accents T2.

Straight from the Alexanders: "No." I asked.

The market can't support the cost of producing electronic guns that live up to their quality standards.

That said, they still have bodies for sale (don't know if they are old stock or not) that can be sent to DC to be assembled. AKA does not provide boards, you have to supply your own.
