Just like but now the same as an automag...but the enmey is a simple budget based marker so it had to be simple.

All I care about is reliability.
And the X7's gave me nothing but problems. Leaking valves, leaking gasthru and Cyclones that were chopping balls.
The exact opposite of the reliability of an A5.

We will see how the Enmey holds up.

Price to me is little concern but looks and functionality go hand in hand. I love my Geo3 it does what I need it too, it performs well, and is efficient but mostly importantly it has the look I want. Although I do care about reliability but if a marker is horrendous and ugly as sin then I will refuse to run it, I need my markers to have some class and distinction otherwise they aren't worth my time. Too each their own though.

You two have obviously never seen the internals of the Crossover if you're thinking its the same valve as the Phenom. It isn't. It shares being a blow forward operated by an on off and the name Tippmann. The Phenom engines are terrible. Why Tippmann went with a non user serviceable valve is beyond me. Regardless, the Crossover isn't a Phenom in a sleek body.

I was just being sarcastic with the mag comment in general. I really don't know what point you're trying to make.

Agreed....I owned a phenom as a first marker, and I hate it. The whole 'flex valve thing' wasn't really that astounding. I think a big reason why it has less recoil is because it's fcking heavy.

And the crossover is IMO overpriced.

Again, the best gun I've bought since I switched to Automags is, believe it or the GOG Enmey. Don't let the price, or the fact the body is made from plastic, fool you. It's 10 times better, right out of the box, than any of my Phenoms were.

One thing I have learned the last year, is price doesn't make a gun good.

If the Crossover had the 2 stage bolt ala Etha (ie. the modern day equivalent of the Automag's Level 10 bolt) I would be all over this. Granted, it's not all that big of a deal in mech mode, but it would be super nice to have. Once I installed a Level 10 on my 'mag, I knew I'd always want one instead of a Level 7. I know the eyes are there in elec mode, but I consider the 2 stage bolt like I do condoms--I'd rather have it and not need it then need it and not have it.

If it did have the 2 stage, it would be a fantastic value. A modern day ACE'd Emag equivalent for $350? Hot stuff. Well, aside for the whole lack of customization factor ala AGD. I think this thing would've sold much better at this price at launch. It might be too little too late now.
