I like it. For the price, I can make my own reg cover. Usually cover it with grip tape anyway.

Guys, I'm pretty sure that in the macro-less option, the front grip is still the reg, similar to how the BL Victory is configured..

Which validates the point above, the stock regulator is severely unaesthetic.

judging by the hole in the bottom of the foregrip I'm guessing that it's just a foregrip and not a reg.

or maybe it's a reg that accepts conventional hoses.

I'm hoping its a stand in. It honestly looks like an A-5 foregrip.

The wheels on this car are round! How Unoriginal!
Yeah, they could have designed the milling better, but who cares? It's a shooter. Even the non matching reg doesn't matter - it's hidden by the holding hand.
Is the milling easy to clean? If Yes = Fine Milling!

$600 means it could drop to ~$350-450 on the second hand market.
I like how the entry level to GOOD guns keeps getting lower.
More competition! This is Great!

The original Alien had the right idea. They used a sterling valve, which positioned the hopper directly above the grip. That made it the only commercial ramvalve sterling-valved gun. (ignoring anything Mollick made).

In this day and age where every gun can shoot faster then you can pull the trigger, and came with decent eyes or equivalent, what else is there, but looks.

Personally, I've never liked the "chopped rear" look.

What was that one called? I'd be curious to see pics of it.

au contraire! the balance of the gun and maybe amount of wasted air would factor into barrel rise even if recoil is minimal. plus the quality control should matter into a gun's judgment because sloppy parts like the trigger or internals may affect missing a pull or shot consistancy, and that said quality control can only be tested with the actual physical gun.

it was just called the alien (or alien revelation?). it has a boltless design and used a pivoting trapdoor at the feedneck that resembled an alien's head, which is where the company's name came from.
