Coming in 2017:Complete Pump/Autococker from Inception Designs

Copied from Inception Designs Retro Series "Hornet" FULL GUNS ARE COMING! PBNation.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q8ggGVmUE4Y

Quote:
The "Hornet" is part of our new Retro series which is taking classic Paintball guns, milling them with classic old school styles* and updating them with modern easy to use parts, modern functionality, and modern ergonomics.

The Hornet will be available as a body kit, an upgrade kit for the Empire Resurrection and Empire Sniper, a full parts kit to build your self as a pump gun or an autococking gun, as a complete pump Gun, or as a complete Autococking gun. (Click twice on the images for the largest resolution).






Quote:
Initially the body kits will be available to ship this week.

Upgrade kits, build it yourself kits, and full guns will be available from Paintball Extravaganza. Dealers attending the Paintball Extravaganza will get the first opportunities on the new products, get to learn about all of our new features, and in our tech class get to build their very own Hornet and take it with them. There are limited spots available in our tech class so tell your dealer to sign up now!

Details of all the new parts featured in the upgrades kits, build it yourself kits, and full guns will be released at PBE first, along with more exciting news that will favour any Dealer attending the event. We will have a big release at 10am on Tuesday at PBE with more exciting news for the year. Your dealer is not going to want to miss out on that...

Components used to build these guns will be available separately after Paintball Extravaganza and once we have rounded up more hamsters to keep our machines going...

*thanks to Steve Cusano, from Cousins Paintball, in particular for pestering me to make a gun body design with gills for the last 3 years and for his input on the design...

**some guns shown with options which may increase the price.

I'm glad Simon is a part of the paintball industry.

There aren't many of the good ones left.

Aesthetically, I agree, but from a functional standpoint, I've always preferred my regulator farther forward so I can wrap my whole hand around it up high. I feel my accuracy and comfort both increase that way.

I love Simon and I love the fact that inception exists and is making quality cocker parts but I hate the trigger feel on the Resurrections and I hope these don't have that snappy feel.

Shooting semi agreed, but how do you hold a pump and a reg at the same time?

Just glad to see someone else coming out with pump stuff!

Double FYI for paintball rules there should be no "offer" of surrender, its either mandatory surrender at X distance when guy is behind you or no surrender and you get shot in the booty. "offer" of surrender makes for some ridiculous and dangerous john woo tactics.

Full gun too expensive? Grab a body while you can and piece it together over time. I just finally bought a Resurrection cheap and grabbed an Inception Ripper body. It's almost too late to find one now.

I'll buy the reg for sure, body is a maybe. I like it, but I'd have to build a pump. The (gill) flats really need to be anodized yellow in my opinion.

Simon is definitely a class act. Keep making great parts!

The Resurrection and Hornet are easier to aim quickly and accurately with that extra space. It takes a little adapting though. In the PbN thread Simon said this gun is stretched out even more than a Resurrection, and that it would be the norm going forward with his builds.

And the price is steep but I'm personally happy to hear that there are people which are willing to pay $1000 for an autococker.

I like the overall look but wish it was offered without the Vertical ASA so far forward. I want the ASA and Regulator as close to the trigger guard as possible.
