Where is our Trracer First Strike magazine?

This last weekend I was able to pick up a box of Valken Redemption (by far my favorite paint), so I took out my Trracer to give it a try. Instead of using my 10" Deadlywind I instead grabbed my 10" Hammerhead MoFo with M50 muzzle, AC to HH iFIT using .685 insert. Chronoed and quickly tuned the Hammerhead shooting nicely at 280fps and then went out for the first game of woodsball.

This is the 2nd time trying out my Trracer (First time was using Empire Premium but the paint was horribly out of round) and I'm now hooked! I was threading balls between trees and through brush eliminating the other team and was having a blast. I didn't think I would ever find another Marker as accurate as my Tiberius till now!! If I could see any of the other player the Trracer could hit them!

This pump is amazing!!

The Hammerhead MoFo added a flatter arc and a little more range than the other markers coming at me which really got me thinking that when they finally release the First Strike magazine for the Trracer it will seriously up our game in the woods!!

I tend to think a First Strike mag is something a lot of Trracer owners want. Drop KEE a message or call and let them know. There's probably a lot of cool things we as players would like to have that they think nobody would buy.

So when are we getting some kind of loader for first strike rounds on the trracer. Most people would love to have a pump action fs marker since that round is expensive. Also because it helps over come rof limitations when in mixed play. If you did a detachable mag style feed im sure you would make tons of money from the sales of many mag. I myself wouls buy 10 depending on.the capacity right off the bat. Hopefully you guys see that fs rounds are gaining momemtum what with the tacamo kits the carmetech sar 12 and various other companies getting behind it. Hopefully empire will see the value of jumping on the wagon early as opposed to being late. You guys have a chance here to really dominate that niche industry by having an affordable light efficient marker that also has an fs loader. Please dont miss the boat.


Matthew - Because the First Strike rounds aren't our product - we will never create a magazine to use them on our products. You should follow up with Tiberius Arms and ask them to make a universal or marker specific loader for First Strike rounds to be used with existing markers.


Would it be possible to ever have at least a magazine feed kit for the trracer that fed standard paint balls? That would be cool enough by itself and of course anyone could probably mod it for fa rounds later if they so desired.




(Short convo on facebook from me to empire)

they make barrels that thread to guns they don't manufacture.

I would buy a Trracer again if they came out with a rail mounted feed for FS rounds. That's why I got one in the first place, and then sold it when it looked like the feed was not going to happen. I've let them know.

Unfortunately. It's sad too, because the Trracer is the most stripped down you will probably ever get for shooting FS rounds, unless you have an R7.

Yeah i agree i mean a lot of people want an fs mag or something similar for any pump. Bit if your gonna.make it for any pump than it probably should be the trracer. With its look and whatnot. Also its affordability a lot of people me included would have a hard time being able to afford some of the fs markwrs out there. I dunno fellas what should we do?

Make something that will mount to the rail and also be able to accept TPX mags.

Profit.
