A 12+ round clip is a good idea, I also think that the thing needs to be stripped to bare bones. Hopefully it comes without all that tac rail stuff. As a concept though, it could be bullpupped, dropped into a stock, etc. As a rifle like they have pictured it would be too hard to reload when prone IMO.

As a pistol shooter and a real steel M1 enthusiast I don't mind 8 shots, but more would be nice.

From what I've heard, they'll also be putting out a bigger mag. Don't know how many rounds will be inside, but if I had to guess, it'd be around 12. I think it looks pretty kewl. However, I agree with the idea of putting it in a nice wooden or composite stock. That'd be sweet.

A CA mod is pretty easy to build into a mag if you look at it a bit. I wouldnt do it on my pistol, but for somehting like this it might be a possibility.

There's another way to do it where you don't have to sacrifice your clip loading. I have seen bits and pieces of info on that but I wouldnt want to drill on my body.

It still ought to get 2 full 12 round clips plus a bit extra on a 12 gram, so I don't see a need to convert to HPA unless you want to use a hopper.

If they replaced the barrel, it would probably be a better bore than ".huge". Also the added length could add air effiency. The stock would add stability, sight rails are always cool IMO, and the bipod can.... add dead weight.

Still looks awesome as hell (minus CAR stock )

Direct from the source....

There will be multiple new guns appearing no the site in the next few weeks, no additional info is being released yet about the models.

All of them will be released and available in time for christmas.

I was told they would be competitively priced at well under $400, (my nonspecific benchmark number), lots of emphasis on the well.

I wouldn't buy a Tac-8. I like having my air stay in gun while I reload, and an overlord with a spare mag costs about half of a tac-8 with no accessories. Plus it looks huge.

Their rifle I would buy. I can't wait to see what else they give us
