It is a bit longer, yes. It is around 10" from front to the back of the body and around another 3.5" from body to the end of the bucket changer. I don't have a ruler so I used an online one. I will get better measurements shortly.

Actually, the barrel is a little shorter than that. The removable aluminum barrel is 4.25" long from the front to the start of the threads, so say 5" total length. I am thinking the barrel on a standard length Box Gun must be like 3.5" or so.

A Box gun is, what a Box gun is

Being a fan of pistols, I might consider the Box gun could be just about the best representation out there for under $1,250., though having never handled one other than a CIP, I'm sure it's worth the extra $700

I love the anno and the milling. Very classy.

THE-SHOOTIST Anyone chubbin' like me for this?
mailmanmike Since Monday! That's more than 4 hours though, so according to those cialis ads I should see my doctor.
tlane77 I think for a non-chemical chubby it's 6 hours before its time to see a doctor. So you should be good for another couple hours.
splattttttt I wasn't goin to google "chubbin" because I assumed it had to do with fat. The lard type, not the fun stuff. But what ever feelings Jeff's experiencing, then they must be of the fun like stuff...

Looks great amigo, I hope it brings you many eliminations and muncho fun. Looks fantastic. But for the coin he could have had it re-anoed after the additional milling so it was perfect or would that have ruined it? I dont know!

As for the UPS issue I recall my old buddy at Rocky Mtn Paintball used UPS exclusivly mainly due to the fact the retailer got a cut of the shipping. You see he could actually dictate the shipping cost and UPS would pay him the additional income derived from such an endevor. It was kinda crooked IMHO but I believe its a common business practice.

I hope this wasnt the case and hope it still does not go one but it once was very common and thus I avoided UPS only shippers after I found out this little tidbit of info.

Happy shooting.

I honestly have no idea! Part of me wishes that it was "perfect", but it really does not detract from the gun so I am indifferent. I am sure it will suffer wear and nicks over its life anyways, and it is already wearing nicely on the tight parts (not externally visible) like the pump handle after putting a hundred or so rounds through it and playing with the pump handle for hours. The pump stroke is now unbelievably light and smooth, I am addicted to shooting it.

I am going to update after the next game with a follow up review as well as conducting an efficiency test indoors. As much as I like shooting it, I cannot justify wasting 12 grams outside in -10C temperatures.

I missed this question, sorry! You cannot buy any more, to my knowledge. You can talk to Earon about it, but I think he is only offering the three insert kit.
