TELL me they will be coming with a 12'' lapco barrel, It looks like a flagpole is sticking out of the front of that gun!
The gun looks great though, the trademark logos take up about 0.000001% of the guns overall looks so it doesnt really bother me.
Ill be more interested in how it performs, and how air efficient it is. I cant get over how unbalanced and rediculous that long barrel looks though.
great review, thanks for all the pictures
I think it was a Tabby.

I honestly doubt that LAPCO will ever release a new gun. Colin has left the building, and I don't know if he is still around to give advice, or if he is just long gone. I wish him all the best either way.
As for the company now, I don't know its future. They have good products, but this gun thing has been dragging out for too darn long.
If it happens, then it happens, and then you can buy one. Until that day, do NOT plan on it, and if you put money down, I firmly suggest people get their money back, and buy a Palmers in the mean time.

I got to hold the original prototype at CalJam in December '05. The gun was beautiful and the folks at the Lapco booth said that the cheesy plastics would be replaced with aluminum or something else. The plastic feed/sight rail was just "prototype" and not a final design. At that time they promised that the finished product was to be available in March '06. I thought the gun to be very promising and offered to buy the prototype there on the spot. Unfortunately they said no and that I would have to wait for the release. It's a shame that it seems it won't happen.
Have a Grateful Day!

I hope that there will be more. This a great gun for its price and in this condition, but why it is taking so long, I don't know.
put it this way.. if they make this gun in production, I will buy not one, but two of em...

although very pretty I am not as fond of the foregrip/12 gram changer location. If it got a direct feed that would put the hopper in front of the fore grip which is a set up I don't care for.
The biggest question I have about it is how many offers have you received from the other MCB members to buy it?

I know what you mean, but you are holding onto the pump.... not the 12 gram changer, as she's not a semi (as I know you know, but sometimes I need to spell this out for people new to pump playing)
So, again I understand, but don't see it as a big deal. But everyone is different, hence why so many different guns, and gun nuts.

Retired from paintball
Nice review, Carter. I do hope the production guns (when/if...) will ahve the feed and pump as metal, not plastic. Too easy to possibly break or crack them if they remain plastic. It does seem silly to have an adjusting rod that's too short to fit down the barrel of a gun with an adjustable bolt....
