splattttttt's AV-1 Falcon s#57...

And so it begins... My new found love affair.

Yea, she's a beaut, my little bird of prey.
Took me a way bit too long to finally share my opinion with you kind folks, but I'm now finally ready to reveal my thoughts.

First off. Consider the AV-1 Falcon as a high end pump marker.
Reason I can honestly succumb to this claim is mostly due to a great relationship I share with a very good friend who not only possesses an abundant amount of knowledge regarding paintball, but has also managed to amass a long and fruitful career as an engineer/machinist.
In his own words, "if Josh doesn't send it to be made in China, it's definitely costing him a bundle" (more on that later).
He also went on to point out the trigger it self specifically, and stated that if he was to make one, it would cost the customer easily $50. right off the bat.
So, yea. We're talking high end.

But what is really high end?
To most of us it means NOTHING!
Then to some, "it must be a piece of crap", if you didn't spend over 1k+
So regardless... How ever Avratech is going to be capable at getting these into our hands for the proposed $499. (I believe Josh is referring to US currency), is up to them.
So with that being said, $499 for a gun that is ready to shoot out of the box, with the ability to compete against guns costing more then the proposed price tag of the Falcon isn't too bad.
Yes, there are many great guns out there from which to choose from. What it will mostly come down to is preference, and experiences you may have had in the past.
I payed $600. for #57, and this baby is worth that and more.
At least that's what my good friend Wes, and I will tell you.

A little word from Josh Grasby
"I started developing my own pump marker in late 2005, based off the AM Illusion, and also began designing an mQ based pump gun as well. I continually re-created the design but was not happy with it, until WCPW (west coast pump weekend) 2008, when I had a look at a new Sterling, which gave me the idea of trying a marker design with the lower tube flipped around to shorten it, also allowing rear valve access and velocity adjustment via valve tension (like the Illusion). My first napkin sketch in 2008 brought about the Falcon project, which was documented on PBN and MCB, from the early design to the garage-built prototype, just in time to play with it at WCPW 2009."
************************************************** ***********************************************
So for those of you sitting on the fence on this, that's fine.
Don't do as I've done and jump at the first chance you get at an offer too good to pass up.
Production is slated for spring 2011. Keep your fingers crossed.
Wait to see what others have to say. But if they're anything like me, chances are you won't get much more than just a big grin.

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...
tlane77 He's got a woody for your woods.
