May seem like a stupid question... but it's not answered in the press release...

So? Is the body made out of Carbon Fiber too? Or is it just a facade? Like Veneer on wood.

It doesn't actually say.

D3adpool 05-20-2013 10:05 AM

Nice! I wished thought the foregrip also had the CF effect on it as well....

keeping my fingers crossed that it is true CF....

Schmitti 05-20-2013 10:06 AM

It's so damn hard to see. They should have used different lighting and a different background so we can actually see the "carbon fiber". Because of that it's hard to see if it's a CF wrap... or a CF pattern dip.

I have a feeling if it is really CF, that there is still an aluminum sleeve in there. You can see it from the front angle shot. If anything I'm leaning towards just a hydrographic pattern dip.

It looks awesome, I normally hate chrome on a marker.

But on the CF body, I'd have to guess no on it being a full carbon fiber body for that price. If I'm not mistaken I believe the normal axe with redline is around in this price range, I would think if it was a CF body that would have driven the price up considerably.

I could be wrong, one can only dream though, I would love to see a full CF bodied marker that is just alumnimum or SS sleeved.

to me it looks like you can see a aluminum tube right were the barrel screws in; and i would assume they would have put an aluminum tube wrap in fiber. For the extra $400 i would have assumed they would have at least made the trigger frame as well as the fore grip carbon fiber as well. i got really excited when i seen the posting, yet unexcited when i seen the gun.

It's a vinyl wrap/hydro dip on the body... the barrel it true carbon

D3adpool 05-20-2013 10:27 AM

Then if that is the case they should have done the same with the foregrip and maybe even the grip panel......sigh.....:confused:

Only place in the press description that it mentioned being carbon fiber is the barrel. If the body was CF, I am pretty sure they would have highlighted that big time.

But it is still a sweet looking gun.
