Pretty neat little gun though I still think I'd rather a victory.
I didn't even know exalt made a marker.

It was a private label Droid.. just a different milling pattern. Exalt didn't really have anything to do with it besides saying "We want our name on a special version of your gun"

It is quite likely that the Exalt Droid and these Bob Long guns are being machined at the same shop.

Well they were working on their own but it never was released


I think Bob still mills all his stuff in-house though doesn't he?

I'm pretty sure he still make everything in-house. They are well known for being one of the last companies you can buy a real 'merican gun.

I thought Macdev made all their stuff in Australia. I would assume that included the Exalt Droid if Macdev did milled them for Exalt from the factory.

Macdev does make their guns in Australia, but exalt got raw guns, did the milling themselves, added an exalt bolt and whatever other goodies were "special" to that gun, and then had it annoed stateside

MacDev makes all there stuff on there own CNC machines in their own building.

Bob Long has a close relationship to a long running machine shop that has made American made paintball guns for decades. Bob does all the assembly in house.

Both company's do truly make their guns at home.

I only own one Bob Long gun, my 06 empire II, and the quality is fantastic on that thing. I wouldn't expect less with these new guns.

I was never a marq fan because the thing cycled so fast, but I loved the ergonomics of the victory. I'm anxious to shoot the spool.

Yes, it uses the same trigger. I also think there might be some new style/shape triggers coming out.

Bob makes great guns, I've owned several of them. However I've always always hated the feel of the trigger.

Good to see him rolling stuff out.

Will see how it shoots tomorrow. There are four on the squad so there is a good bit of real time performance testing to happen.

Bob was shooting 33 BPS without any breaks today when he demo'd the marker. Obviously not many leagues allow for that but still a nice option for anyone interested in having that as an option.
