This is great news. I haven't been able to recommend a mid-to-low end mechanical gun for quite some time.

Since one eventually always brings up patents when discussing the Gardners, it would be interesting to see if Colin Bryant Moritz has anything to say about this new marker:

Patent US6990971 - Pneumatically amplified trigger actuator for a gas operated marker gun - Google Patents

Not directly applicable, but it's the first patent that came to my mind vaguely similar to this marker.
This looks like it is the G-Force trigger frame I saw quite a while back. Can't find the same site now, so maybe they are gone.

I think this is a good thing. I like mech guns, and simplifying an electro like this is appealing. I'd like to know if they have a pulse valve in there or if the bolt is forward for as long as the trigger is pressed.

I don't think we can get mad at a company for seeing a common customer mod to their product and supplying it as a factory option.

What the hell is with their naming schemes these days, though? Terribad.

Agreed, I think this is a good thing overall. The name........not so much. However, I could see this being a great rental gun.

I'm curious, really depends on the trigger as it would be nice to have a single trigger mech that doesn't feel like your shooting a water pistol

Yep...they basically had their balls cut off, so they aren't exactly the evil empire these days.
