Tell paintball gateway! The more they hear about the huge potential market, the more likely they actually make these.

Didn't the older ones use CA too? I think they were called Daytona Guns?

im not a HUGE airsoft guy but from my limited knowledge i know that prior to Polar star gun (essentially an old school shocker in an airsoft body) the guns ran on green gas which was very inconsistent in the cold weather and was store in the magazines.

I know some guns were modded to take remote lines but this was attached through the magazine (very impractical).

Otherwise im not familiar. Thats a nice piece of airsoft trivia i guess lol

I'm pretty sure they were fed with standard AEG mags, but I guess it doesn't really matter.

It would be an interesting tank to have, small but with more than enough shots for most pumpers.

yeah but 100,000 isn't that much considering you probably only have to sell 1500-2000 of these to start to turn a profit. i bet you could do that in the first week of their release. it would be the best investment ever. and with minimal risk.... if they only knew how much ppl were CRAVING these things.... maybe i speak for myself though

A major tank maker would have to back this for it to really happen. PBG i dont think by only using their selling power could pull a profit BUT if lets say Ninja took the reins for this and sold to all their distributors than YES i could see a profit being turned absolutely

I emailed Ninja about this a few weeks back... they have no plans to move on this, they quoted something around $50,000 to get the DOT & TC stamps but still thats not cheap. Total bummer because i would probably sell my other tanks and just run these if they were available.
