$129 is cheap compared to some guns out there. This is MCB. We think a stingray is an upgrade. Let us give it a chance. To be very honest, I really like my envy, ion and sp1. Only reason I chopped paint was my fault. Like I mentioned I already have some machine time set aside.
I shoot a used rental against some top of the line guns and have no trouble competing against them, with my $20 refurbished rental.
What happened in the past is finished. We all said our part, let it be finished.
One thing no one has mentioned, at least they have geared this new gun to beginners at a decent entry price.

Later,
Blackrain

I'm with Blackrain. My Ion never gave me a single bit of trouble...until I started "upgrading" it. Had I left it stock and just changed the trigger ('cause we all know it needs that), I'd probably still be running it like all my teammates who've had 'em for years. But I started swapping in BOB bodies, new bolts that chewed tail o-rings like crazy, etc, and only THEN did it crap out on me. I take full responsibility for my Ion ceasing to function. I just couldn't leave well enough alone.

As someone who has teched at some of the biggest games in the world for Smart Parts, trust me when I say we wish there were more players such as yourself that admit when something is wrong. You wouldn't believe how many people lie when they bring their stuff over to be fixed. Want to get back on the field faster? Tell us what you did so we're not playing detective.

Anyways,

The body shape seems to be that of an Envy with the same feed neck style. Regulators are easy to work on. At $129 for my Birthday present, I can afford to have this

I'll do a review on this gun when I get it

Later,
Blackrain
Looking forward to the review. Yours are always great to read. Cheers.

I just received final approval from my boss to take the 25th off so I can go to this class. YIPPEE!
I haven't been this excited about a new gun in a LONG time.

Great idea for a marker. Wrong company means I won't be looking for one.

I also love how in their release, they claim to be the creative minds behind the PVI Shocker.

KEE/Empire hasn't really gone off the deep end as far as I can tell. No crazy lawsuits so far...right?

I think that he's referring to kee/empire releasing old designs in new updated packages. Such as the flex and trracer but i dont feel that that really counts. They arnt stealing the designs if they own the original company who made it.
