As I said earlier, there are a lot of potential causes for the problems evidenced by that video. If it were my gun, I would be looking at the the magazines and breach as a likely culprit. It would interesting to see if first strikes had the same issues.

I do agree with one thing you said. We shouldn't jump to conclusions, good or bad. That's why I suggested putting the caution flag out. Potential buyers have been looking at photos of this gun and thinking about its purchase since February of 2013. What's another few weeks of waiting?
well I know there 7 or 8 headed to team members at Delta Paintball so we will be adding to the story rather quickly.

It was so quiet I didn't even hear it shooting in that vid. Probably would help if I turned my speakers on though =p

I will be doing another shooting video in about a week or so once I get everything back from Tiberius. I talked with Gio today about the mags and mentioned that i am missing the black insert in the bolt tip and he said that not having it could cause a break. Plus they are going to look over and fix my mags for me as well.

Anyone have a pair of digital calipers and a T15 magazine? I'd love to know the dimensions of the top of the mag. ..

dufkis, great videos man. Watched them before I ever even read this thread. Been waiting on the T15 for quite some time now. But now that the time has arrived I find myself reluctant to actually get one. Originally I had planned on selling my TGR2 and picking one up but honestly I'm just not seeing the advantage right now, at least not enough of one for me to sink the extra coin.

Would you care to weigh the T15 w/o the tank but with the stock perchance? That is if you have some scales, if not just take it with you down the produce aisle lol.

For me weight is going to be the deciding factor, I would really like to get a lighter marker but with it being a 1:1 AR I bet it's just as heavy. Also pending whether or not this ball break issue continues to plague people which I'm sure will be resolved just an early batch issue. I've ran a several cases through the TGR2 and broke just 1 ball due to blowing the front o-ring on the bolt through the barrel.

I couldn't believe the polymer M17 cqc is only 0.3 lbs lighter than the TGR2.

Sorry I don't have an accurate enough scale to do any weight comparisons. But my T15 is heavier than my M17 CQC with a steel handguard and marksman barrel. Over all I like the little extra heft that the T15 offers, it makes it feel worth it in you know what I mean. Plus it looks bad ***!

Here is an updated video I did yesterday I had no breaks and 2 failure to feeds. I guess I'll take the FTF over breaks. They said that they replaced the followers in my mags and got rid of the gaps.
