What is the estimated price point for a marker like this?

Not to be "that guy", but twelve to thirteen shots per cartridge really isn't very enticing. Sure, volume per cartridge is lower than a 12 gram, but this seems like a case of form over function that will also result in higher air costs and a lot more waste that'll make its way into trash cans or buried in the grass on the field.

That's great news. I was disheartened when I read the mags take 8grams.

As long as I can add a remote line to the FSC, I'll be buying one. I always loved the way my Tibs shot over the Tpx/Tipx but I just despised the size of the grip frame so they never stayed in the arsenal very long.

This looks like it can replace my Tipxs. 8 grams talk almost scared me away. I already stockpile Leland 12grams, I wasn't going to mess with adding 8grams as well.

If you wanted, you could run a 8.1/9.1 magazine. We've have a spacer that covers the gap between the end of the frame and the end of the magazine.

The mag and grip thickness was the problem for me, and I wear XL/2X gloves. Just didn't care for it, too bulky.


If these take 8.1 mags, that may still be bothersome for me. I'll stay cautiously optimistic until I can get hands on somewhere.

ANS has them listed for $349.95, if that is the final price, I don't know.

Oh! I thought they were still in the pre-release.
