    In a perfect world I’d throw a Nummech single finger mag frame on it. A single trigger would definitely suit this setup.

    I would absolutely run one of these with a Q-loader, but I would put the carbon fiber grip frame on there, it just looks wrong to have an intelliframe, I also hold the very unpopular opinion of not really liking the intelliframe too much, I thought it would feel like my E-mag but without the little hump in the back it felt way worse to me than the E-mag. I bet it would look cool with a Ricochet which always felt very tactical looking to me

    I’ve ordered in a maintenance kit for the Xvalve so I can put the bolt foam tip back in. I also ordered a feedneck adaptor to be able to run this more as a standard mag. It’s just too tempting not to throw a hopper on this and embrace the speed of the Mag.

    The feedneck is a Nummech adaptor that allows you to run an Empire feedneck. My hope is that the mag adaptor will fit over the adaptor so I only need to take the feedneck off when converting it back to a Longbow setup. Then I can loctite it in the feedneck and not worry about damaging the body’s threads.

    Udate: Feedneck was unavailable. Staying as a Longbow.

    Thankfully my local fields seem fine with any type of markers. Never had issues with Tippmann response triggers either.

    I wanted one of these so badly when I was a kid. I need to go to my parent's and check my old closet for my Recon magazines.

    Nice.

    Looking back on that particular era, I was fortunate that my son got me out of a 10 year paintball retirement in 2005. We had a lot of nice hardware available at the time and spent the next 10 years playing with a lot of nice used markers.

    Some fields today won't let you play with that longbow because it could shoot all 18 balls in one second. 🙄

    If anyone has any special requests or questions let me know! I rarely play so it could be a while before I update the review.

    Finally, the stock itself. It’s got an air line that runs from the valve to a remote line fitting in the stock and a sold rubber pad on the stock with the SpecOps logo.

    And that covers all the physical aspects of the Longbow. I’m not going to review a Tac-One itself as there are way more qualified MCBers to talk about Mags. I’ll touch on it’s performs as a whole whenever I get this to the field.

ID:	273322 And finally, there is a nub/insert that goes into the feedneck to prevent the balls breaking on the feedneck threads:

    There are two small spacing plates that go between the rail
    mounts and the Longbow shroud to help keep things nice and tight (or way too tight in this case).

    After much effort involving WD40 and a hair dryer, I’ve managed to remove the shroud. Thankfully no screws were stripped in the process.

    Now you can see the base Tac-One Mag in all its glory and just a little bit of the X-valve showing.

    I wanted one growing up so bad. Spec ops did an amazing job with their old ads with their ghillie suit clad warrior out in the desert.

    Snagged one and threw a CF frame on it. Still haven't even aired it up since I bought it, but I love the thing to death. I threw one of those goofy 15 inch ebay machine gun shrouds on mine. Looks really mean.

    The mag itself is very simple. And just used a piece of metal with a spring to keep the balls in the mag. When you insert the mag into the body it “opens” the metal piece and balls are pushed forward by the spring.

    Mag inserted into the mag adaptor: the brass button is the mag release.

    Mag removed to show the “latch”:

    And a shot of the mag adaptor and how it feeds into the body:

    So now let’s move on to the mag system itself, which is the most important point of the Longbow system.

Like everything about this gun, these are very long. Just shy of 18 and a half inches, which apparently is the length of a giraffe’s tongue.

    Being that these are so long, handling them is a little difficult. I’m not a tall guy, so there’s not a lot of areas of me that are 18 inches long, so hard to keep the mags on me. I only have two mags as well, so I can preload only 40 rounds before having to refill one of the mags. I’ve come up with what I feel is a good enough loading solution using a modified 50 round pod. I’ll get in to that later though.

    fullofpaint ’s observation I took a closer look at the SpecOps stock itself. On the inside of the stock there is some weld marks, but it’s been done very nicely for something that wasn’t going to be seen. So this likely could be a home modified version, or perhaps a prototype.

    Having since removed the stock I can see the work that done in it a lot better. Pieces are added to the end of the original shroud to extend it. The original holes for the stock were filled and re-drilled at the end of the extension. It was clearly done by someone with some skill.

    I also threw on a Flex8 mask on to see how everything lines up when looking down the scope. Mask clears without issue and with that raiser rail it’s perfect height. So whoever set it up did a good job at least!

    And finally, with the shroud completely removed:
