Bottom line like everything in paintball....it will ship when it's completed. No one makes a penny until product rolls out the door, just something to think about.
Them not being the manufacturer is a fair point, but at the same time, with their previous experiences they of all people should know better than to start preorders and offer tentative dates before they've even had the test kits distributed to testers. Same thing bit Tippmann in the *** with the whole TPX "silhouette" marketing campaign. Don't start hyping the crap out of a product when you haven't even built enough of them to test properly yet.

Don't be so hard on RAP4 maybe the workers at the plant asked for a raise to $.50/day and the owners had them all thrown in prison? That could add a long delay since you have to train a whole new group of kids up from scratch to operate the machines and everything.

I see nothing unprofessional about their reply. Rap4 even offered a refund! Would you rather they actually act unprofessional and send you product that isn't quite ready for your marker. I'm not trying to troll here but you sound like a 14 yr old who has no clue what it takes to go from concept to product on the shelf.

Good News:

If it's any indication the units they had at D-Day were remarkable. Made me want a mech just to add the kit to along with that ammo box they are selling. I actually spied the SAW it was awesome some 14 yr old bought it on the spot. Too darn heavy for me but it was as close a copy as a paintball gun should be. Worth all 2k IMHO!

If I'm 14 then your an ignorant old man who needs to get with the times. From concept to a product on the shelf? lol. Good buisness would be keeping it a concept until you actually have the product to put on the shelf. What other industry would something like this be tolerated in?

If you wanted to express your disdain for rap4 and how they handle business, mission accomplished. Your task has been complete.
But if you're here to vent your anger or simply bash rap4, MCB is NOT the place to do it.
If you plan to continue with your current actions, I kindly ask you do it somewhere else where perhaps other may share the sentiments as you do.
Thank you.

Well, I've pre-ordered four paintball things this year and only one of them is still on schedule. My mag coversion kit and Metadyne Thumper are both months past the release date and the MCM 8ci tank actually ended up being cancelled. Only thing still on schedule is my DSG.

Not sure where you have been, but the video game industry is the poster child for missing deadlines.
