Is it different for different sake, or does it have quantifiable improvements?

Back from 2006 to 2009 I spent a lot of time talking to Josh (the lead on this) and he gave me the rundown as he was getting his patent through the office. That horrific "old body style" is partly my fault, too- it's what happens when you use too slow a computer for your modeling software.

That said, the gun is efficient- not 2600/tank efficient, but 1800/tank pretty easily. That's good enough for me. The gun is smooth and quiet. The gun is easy to maintain. Best of all, though, he tested it on a cold, rainy day in the Pac NW and it didn't jam. That's worth something, right there.

A gun that won't jam is worth more to me than ... well, anything else. As an engineer, the simplicity of the firing train means stuff just won't go wrong. If you thought Automags were durable, this gun should be similar or better.

Also, the regulator is a fantastic little design. It's like an Evolve Pi became an on/off. I think we should convince him to make some that have an output fitting, like all our old-fashioned guns use, and sell them. Imagine buying one for, oh, $90, instead of $50 for an ASA and $110 for a comparable reg.

Keep an eye on this company. I'd be surprised if they sold anything pointless.

Nate! Good to see ya again! You should give me a call!

As it sits, we went with a bit more conventional reg, but it is slick and tiny. With a cam on/off.

Now, I won't say this is automag tough, I still have mine from 1994? But I did setup some places in the design to upgrade to that level with the wear points. I can't wait to show the internals off. That is in 2 weeks, and will be a mind blower!

How is this supposed to be interesting? Another electro? I'm assuming that rectangle thing is a Soliniod? (Sp) big whoop. If its mech it might be interesting though.

My personal favorite is the' mech. Shoots like a LUXE Cocker. There will be a mech.

After PBE lets see what people say about interesting.

We will be assembling and testing here at our shop in Texas. Machining is coming from a few places, including the US, nothing from Asia.

I guess no one has asked yet... which is surprising.

Does this have auto-triggering?
How many shots per 12g?
Will it shoot first strike rounds?
Hand fed or magazine/clip fed?
Will this come with an undercocking kit? Or will we have to live with the over-barrel pump handle until someone designs a undercocking kit for it?
I assume the pump handle was omitted from the renderings for simplicity sake.
Can I get it in polished brass or patina?
When can I get one with a pirate stock?

We MUST have answers!!

Lol, Looking great guys!
