Possible Fake Myth Regs again
I can't validate this yet and would love to hear from GA if possible. This thread was started in both the News and Field Owners Forum on the Nation. I'm only posting it because of the possibilities of what could happen if it's true.

Happy and homeless
Crazy stuff, good to know that this poorly made product is still on the market.
You know, the whole design looks like it's almost designed for CO2?

Insane Psychopath. :D
i still have one of the original phoney myth regs on one of my 13 ci's. When the first one hit, no one posted a pic of what a real myth reg looked like, so i assumed mine was real. Fast forward a year when eeveryone is using them, and i see mine is too tall to be a real myth reg. Need to change that out sometime, but it seriously gets dead on consistency. Like every shot is within 2 fps of the last. It is great.

Makes me laugh when people say that their gun/tank/reg is gonna EXPLODE!!!!!! The only time that will happen is when the tank has oil introduced into it and a hot 4500psi fill is slammed into it. And how many times has that happened? 2 or 3 if I recall correctly. Wish the crazies would research the facts before spewing out crap like that. I blame some of it on the old picture of a catastrophicly failed tank, that was pressurized to 12,000psi or something similar, with a hole the size of an orange with threads all splayed out. Heck even tanks failing hydro isnt all that comon, which shows how safe the tanks themselves are. The other instigator is PBN, and the fact that they dont try and educate the kids, and let stupid rumors and untruths be posted. Seems to me PBN doesnt realize how much POSITIVE change they could do to this sport, and only seem to be about the money.
The "Fake" Myth regs are not gonna "Blow" up, they may fail, but not catostrophicly.

it probably wont explode, no
but i remember back when i played in tourny circuits some kid with a fusion didnt tighten his LPR/ram screw all the way, and it shot right out the back of the gun, missed his head by an inch, and went about 7 feet before it hit some other kid.
it won't "explode" but it still has potential to cause harm, not to mention the fact theyre ripping off people

It puts the hands in the air or it gets the paint again.

i also heard on the nation that a myth reg blew up a Droid. the owner posted pictures and MacDev replaced his Droid for free (even though it was the tank's fault). dunno whether that myth reg was genuine though.
