That hopper config is just...wow. I wonder if it has a lip on the inside where the transition is? Also nice to have to "rock 'n' reload" so you don't dump your paint all over.

I also don't get why they insist on 12 grams in everything. Wouldn't a single back bottle ASA be way cheaper to implement, less likely to explode on the user, and more market friendly for the people who buy these things? What does a 9oz tank cost now, like $8? You can barely get a 15 pack of 12ies for that. Or hell, put a built-in SpareAir adapter on it at least...

Because you might put more stress on their oh so strong plastic with a whole steel CO2 tank.

funny thing is there was a recall on the blade turbos. Turns out the "dual jet technology" was defective. Apparently 2-12gms would cause the back cap to shoot off

I have this gun. I broke down one day at Academy and had to buy it. $24.95.

That hopper is a force to be dealt with. To get it open with out breaking it off is near impossible. Seems like i remember a comparison of a daisy red ryder and a virgin's legs that should also include this hopper.

I think they do 12 grams because you can more easily aquire them as a first time player. Overall I think they are a bit safer than a big tank especially with 8 or 10 year olds.

The back cap should be what the whole gun is made of. It is quite high quality resin looking plastic. I believe the later blade turbos had this after the recall.

If anyone sees the new talon, its grip is very similar to this. Reminds me of an Uzi. Odd feeling on a pump.....

I wish BE still made their guns out of that nice plastic. I really like my Tigershark.

Hear, hear. That glass-filled nylon stuff is the bomb. Cuts so nice with a Dremel too
