New features in the Gen III batch to be extra excited about:

-anti double feed detent, works like a charm
-refined trigger geometry to maximize compatibility and consistency
-smaller trigger pin setscrew for cleaner appearance
-bigger radiuses around the grip area for extra comfy handling
-new plug-in style transfer port to replace the thread-in style, much more consistent
-overbored valve body for added volume around the cupseal (thinking ahead for LP tuning)
-optional locking setscrew hole between valve body and receiver snub
-refined tolerances for a tighter overall fit between frame, receiver and valve body

Impressive. How come no one is getting the other style of 12 grams knob? The quick change one that you show in one of the video.

Mag changers aren't done yet, as mentioned the accessories are coming up next.

Looks great :)

Is the plan to ship these out before the accessories are done?

ApoC_101 12-10-2012 02:03 PM

Correct, except for Magslide guns which will be sent out complete, along with other match-anodized setups (not applicable to standard colours and finishes). Yours is not in this set BTW, the blood splattered frame you see is Crimsons ;)
