I wouldn't call pieced together in a basement from old stock "readily available". Are you even certain AGD makes anything new? Probably soft seals, but I don't think you can buy a Classic Automag anymore from them. You can get a ULE Mag, but that isn't exactly at the same price point we are talking about.

They still have (some) support, yes, but they are not widespread enough to adequately support the entry-level mechanical market. Your average paintballer is not going to run down parts and support from third parties and forums. I love Mags, but they aren't in the same scope as this.
I was referring to a ULE and I just purchased parts this past week straight from AGD. They still sale new parts. You just have to get them straight from AGD.

And I'm sure you could get a ULE from AGD for $130.

Just like the Crossover...the ULE is not a viable alternative to the eNMEy. Most of the people who buy one of this will be unable/unwilling to drop that kind of money on the only two other "options". You can't compare A to B when B costs almost four times as much as A.

This is currently the ONLY entry-priced, factory-stock, currently-produced, non-blowback, non-milsim, mechanical gun out there.


*ETA*
Besides, as has been said repeatedly in this thread...yes, the Gardeners were dicks. But they got slapped down and that's all in the past. GoG makes quality stuff at great prices...period. So who cares if there are other options that fit the bill (there aren't); that's no reason to crap on this marker.

I was under the impression that they are still using old stock. That's why there are so few options left. Either way, you are right, they are available new, but I think ULE Mags are too pricey to be within the scope of this discussion.

As for price you are absolutely correct.

My statement was more about availability. You are completely correct about price. I may pick one of these up.
