I love how a guy from Britain is one of the biggest supporters of american made pb guns up there with ccm and bob long. Only in Muricha.


Anyway what's the reg market like? Cant be that booming anymore, most guns come with a competent reg now that matches the styling and color of the gun (so important to so many). It has to be a pretty dry market. Even if the evil m came out, unless major redesignes are done its an 04-0 type cyborg with slightly (very slightly) better regs, a not as clever ram, a nicer bolt and a tornado valve instead of a red valve, very similar markers though.

Only thing they might be able to sell right away gun wise would be merlins but even then mass amounts won't fly off the shelves.



Awesome company that made some awesome products, going to be a bit hard to turn a profit off the same things that they have been selling.

I love the guys over at Ninja. It would be great to see them continue some of the products.

I am struggling to see the value in a paintball reg and hard parts company.

The real value is in the name. Probably the only business use is to buy the company, make some cheap guns in Asia and slap the AKA name on it.

Hmm - didn't Aaron go live in Asia? maybe he can work at the factory

Their hpr and lpr regs are second to none. When you experience a + or - 2 change in fps, you know that the reg(s) are doing a superb job. Sure there are plenty of satisfactory regs coming on the mid and high end regs, with a few on the low ends too, but there are still plenty of cockers and earlier model electros that could benefit drastically with an AKA reg.

How many guns do you see with CP regs...and those regs are terrible.

I could see Ninja trying to move into regs and maybe ASA's as an adjacency to their current market sweet spot. Wouldn't it be cool to have a "Ninja System" that includes a tank reg and HPR specifically designed to work together?

I agree. Correct me if I'm wrong but I believe AKA were the first in the industry to have a swivel base on their hpr regs so you could clock the fitting any direction you wanted?

I believe you are correct. I am sure the IP they have is worth lots to the right people.

Surprised you are the first to mention it. I would be down to invest $100 also. We could put this up on Kickstarter, get more money to run it.
