Meh, im just gonna re post what i wrote on greyops

A blowback? again? On the photo it appears to be using a RAP4 backbottle adapter, or a one styled to look like one, and repeating the bad design of it...
Has the concept of innovation has been completely forgotten in the industry? How long this mad dashing for a tiny slice of an already stale pie, gonna continue?

Excellent. I love the rise in mag fed play. Sounds like a STBB?

Wish they'd come out with base guns similar to the AT-10. Full size carbines are bunk.

I too love the rise in mag fed play, but I have learned from experience that when you have 20 rounds versus a full rotor, you need every advantage you can get. I'm waiting for the milsig HEAT line. I just can't do a mag fed blowback.

Scarab Mags are patent pending designs that utilize the U - Turn concept but the internals are designed to accept fin stabilized and regular 0.68 Paintballs, it does feature a winding mechanism but we were able to iron out the notorious problems with the other winding mechanisms like the tangled threads/cables etc.. and the chopping issues or misfeeds....

The 12 round Mag will take 12 0.68 paintballs but only 10 FS The 18 rounder will take 18 0.68 and 16 FS.

I will be posting more info online ASAP and hopefully a video too.

Please stay tuned and thanks a lot for your interest in Scarab Arms.

I'd be interested in a mag fed gun if someone would make a UMP style semi sub gun with a stick feed magazine that shot FS rounds. I'd invest heavily in it. I don't want remote air either. 12 gram or onboard air. I'd buy that gun all day long to back up my CCM.
Don't want uturn mags. Straight stick feed single stack.
