Nope! You're thinking of the TCR

Well, in your defence you are talking about the same marker in a different shell so....

If you said "that tippmann thing" we would probably understand as well

Gun is definitely Ion-based, and the feed system is indeed a derivative of the Tippmann Cyclone feed actuated by the rearward stroke of the bolt sail. One surprise to me is that the rearward force is transferred into the drive plunger for the Cyclone by a plastic "string of pearls" chain running in a track beneath the feedchute. As others speculated, the dial visible at the bottom of the loader is a pretensioner to fill the feedchute.

I'm surprised and rather disappointed that there is no picatinny sight rail along the top of the gun... or anywhere, for that matter. I assumed that allowing milsim-minded players to aim along the top of the gun was the major reason for offering such a complicated feed system in the first place. Perhaps the hump created by the loader in the back abrogates any ability to properly shoulder this thing with a mask on.

I don't speak French so I understood nothing, but...

If you shoot the loader 'too empty' to you have to tension the system again to get it to work? Or will you just dry fire once the main hopper is too low for any of the balls in the 'stack' to push forward, and it will self-resolve once the body has been refilled?

This, same thing with the Dfender (or any boxmag).

The reason I was asking, and should have been more specific, is that the 'ball stack' on top of the marker is essentially the same as a SC feed; so if you're shooting while the marker is pointing at any angle of down it could potentially empty out more than a traditional box mag (where the ball stack is vertical) would, yes?

Will it 'fix' itself no matter what? Or only if the 'ball stack' is completely full? Not trying to crap on the design; genuinely curious.

*Edit*

I think I might be getting thrown by the 'tensioner' terminology. Is it essentially just a way to advance the balls without firing the marker? If so, I assume if you fire enough it will eventually figure itself out. If it's actually being wound up to apply tension to make the loading system function--then I'm not understanding how it works.
