I’ve been waiting on more news too. My Adrenaline Impulse regularly makes it into my open play rotation.

Although we showed our frame bottom recently (using Luxe style ASA), we typically dont share prerelease stuff. However, we are trying to get a couple done for this upcomming weekend in Chicago at NXL classic event. If we don't it will be right after. Someone said our Impulses took 16 months. We are at 14 now. Major changes in the bolt area. I know I'm worn out. We are now at reassembly and setup stage.

Is there a rough ETA for actual release in there? Or is it just going to be a prototype sort of deal coming soon?

Definitely excited to see what you have in store!

I’m window shopping for the used market in a decade. I love my adrenaline impulse... but I’ve got too much going on with paintball to buy a new one of these without seeing it first.

I can appreciate the hype of mystery. I can appreciate them sticking to their roots. I just don’t necessarily think it’s the greatest strategy to make sales, I can’t imagine I’m the only one who won’t drop a grand.
I’m sure thEy’ll do fine though, reputation goes a long way.

Definitely hurt sales you are right. We had about 35 trust us sight unseen + teams. There isnt much profit in working 14 months to sell 385 guns so waiting on sales wasnt a huge factor. People that saw the sketch, then CAD, then raw, then polished said wow that looks better than I thought it would. They always look better done vs on a screen in drawings. So maybe part hype but also to save it for proper debut and we honeslty just finished some things like the bolt system just recently. But we are now done. It is on anodizers to pop them out and then assembly. Should have tons of accessories too on site (probably by Monday) like high rises etc.

I didn’t mean anything negative by the term “hype.”
And There isn’t a doubt in my mind that the sales will blow up after the release, assuming you’re making more than the preordered markers.
Really, I guess the secrecy gimmick can only be detrimental to you. That said, as mentioned above, I can respect that you guys take it back to the roots and don’t change your ways.

And one more time because I feel like I’m coming off as negative and I don’t mean to, I’m super excited about the release and can almost guarantee I’ll own one at some point!

Please, throw some updates in here. Sometimes we get forgotten about at MCB!
