Also, the anno is actually a semi-gloss, which was upsetting because when I ordered I was told I couldn't have a gloss because "The company isn't set up for it." I fondled the red, and considering selling mine to get one.

(If anyone wants a working prototype Thumper with an early serial number hit me up )

Paying half price for the gun, I don't feel tricked. He's still in the process of designing the new detent, but from everything I've seen, it's pretty much a replacement for the entire front end and cocking rods, not exactly something that's a drop-in. The cost he said was "going to probably be around $20" so it won't be much if you decide to spring for the new detents. I probably will not, as I don't really have issue with the current ones.

Also that video is weird. It's like some strange documentary/ commercial. At least there weren't any "technical things" mentioned.

Edit: "Stock class adapter for a hopper"
I went in on Tuesday and they were filming part of the video when I came in. They're using the same company for anodizing, but it seems a little stronger than the original finish on the prototype/V1 guns. They do have the current version of the new detent system installed, as well as all the new upgrades

I haven't been keeping up on this in a while but did they decide what they are going to do about the rusting pistons? last i heard they were going to try some sort of bluing process.
I will have to call again tomorrow i have been asking for a feed tube with no holes in the sides and was previously told they wouldn't be running anymore off for a while. But it looks like they are in full production now.

There is a new piston design using the older material, no rusting issues at all.

As far as feedtubes go, might be able to get one from them now.

If you don't have one then calling him is the best option (you can't always get him, he's either buried in a machine or in a meeting if you can't) and sometimes it takes multiple calls. I'm to the point where I'll just stop by and if his car's at the shop, I'll call and see if he's busy.

Factory. After they told me no to olive and black acid wash and yes to black with a silver splash I ended up with black and silver acid wash, which I love so that turned out for the better.

When Brian offered the custom anno for the Thumpers he managed to wrestle the name of Mike Cassady's anodizing company from him, thus getting the awesome acid wash finishes on them. Would have sprung for that option had I known

Ive been out of the loop for a while. Still havent received my thumper yet. I was one of the people that requested a custom anno. Last I heard from them was September. They wanted to confirm that I still wanted a custom anno. Of course, I said, "yes, tell me where to send my money." I havent heard a whisper since. I figured the holiday season wouldve put a damper on the situation, so I waited til january to contact them back. I emailed them twice over the last month but havent received any replies. Plus, I tried calling a few times, but no answer, it goes to voicemail. Then, their mailbox is full, so I cant even leave a message....

frustrated!
