isnt that the basic set up for spool design? 1 sail and 2 for the dump?

I will say, when I shot this gun for the first time, my first impression was a shoebox shocker. They shot good - if slow and using twice as much air as needed.

But, I kinda cringed when I did. I mean, that is not a gun many companies want to compare to...

The 1600 shot efficiency is definitely on par with the more efficient spoolies out there, so that's cool. I have found the quick release bolt really comes in handy with my blowbacks, or really any gun that breaks paint frequently. Although unlike those blowbacks this marker has a spool-like shot that will not kick me way off target like they do? That's super.

When is PBE? I look forward to hearing about any innovative tech this gun might have.

I'm more of a poppet guy, but it appears most spoolies fit that description. Are they really super reliable?

in all seriousness, seeing a comparison made me think again about the old brick, and a redesign for it (apply my first pic, much easier to deal with in the shoebox, i think. you'd still have to rebuild the back end, though)


back on topic, i'll just sit here in anticipation for the price to be announced.
on a side note, I have a shoebox shocker sitting around (4x4) in REALLY nice condition (original owner said he shot about a case total through it, I am the second owner) but I have been looking to get rid of it, any idea what these go for these days (I did do a 9v mod on it to get it up and running again everything else is completely stock and I have the original box, that has some ware on it though)

So there is an electro, a mech and a pump at least on the docs, right?

Will you be providing or exploring any other options or mods that end user can purchase to add-on to the existing marker base?

How did you decide on J4 paintball?

I know this is a looooong way away and very superficial but will end users have an ano color of choice or will we just have to choose from a few pre-selected colors?

PBE is end of February.

Electro will be the main set of guns. The rest if we do well and can. But we want to, so...

The feedneck with have an upgrade, we are working with a company for an upgraded bolt, the internals we hope some people play with options there. We plan on working with other companies to bring out upgrade parts, and will be providing them with CAD and help with development.

Say Mil-Sig wanted to do upgrade parts and a gun around it. Oh yeah, we would work with them on that.

J4 - My name is Josh, this is 4 paintball.

No, every gun will be black. Except for the other colors.

We have it setup for small runs of many anno colors, so we will be having fun with that. Expect short run anno colors and maybe some bodies also.

The reason I patented this originally was because I could only do one patent, and if need be, I could sell this patent to build the Shiva.

If we do well, there will be a Shiva.
