Yeah, if that person had a complete CNC shop in their garage. If you have the ability to make one in your garage, please can you make one for me too. 

    Be fair, you might not like the styling but, being objective, it definitely has a professional finish. I think the look is deliberately minimalist to save weight and make it more accurate. The thing about a nice walnut stock is that it can contribute to making a rifle less accurate. Wood expands and contracts with rising and falling temperatures as well as adding weight. This design reduces the potential issue without increasing the cost (with a stock made of composites).

    The other aspect of the design that I think is smart is the reduced size and simplified trigger block. I bet it’s quicker to manufacturer than the one on the Impact. 

    The only aspect I’m not sure about is the position of the bottle. Without the strength of carbon fiber, I’m not sure it’s smart to use it as a forearm. If I got one, I’d want to use it with a hose to hold the bottle away from the rifle. Then I’d add a free float handguard.

    Just realized I haven’t seen that reviewer before. I was thinking of the guy that works in the comic book store in the Simpsons. My bad…

    is the barrel free floating in that shroud? 
    is reg pressure changeable?
    i hope there wont be any POI shifts after moving gun on a cars back seat or something like that

    Hi. The barrel is fixed in the back and the font. The back is fixed in rear breach, the front in the shroud. You can see this in my video when I replace the barrel…
    The regulator pressure is fixed but you have two options: 125 bar and 150 bar. Standard version comes with 125 bar. You get a special spring and weight to optimize performance of the 150 bar regulator.
    The POE does not change by any factor of normal use.

    One thing I think they should improove is the shroud. It seems a bit loud

    thanks for reply. can we play with the spring? to find optimal speed for accuracy

    Playing with a spring is something you should strive to avoid in a pcp. Set it right once and forget it. Even better if it is set right out of the box.

    yes but i dont think manufacturer is looking for perfect speed for accurscy. it tooks a lot of time. so we should set it, right? 

    so is it easy to do so?  like on crickets and others

    I dont think anyone has addressed this yet, but the second foster fitting is used to connect the bottle with a hose when it is not mounted to the gun.

    im sure it wont be accurste. cz barrel with 177 is most accurate at 270-280

    It’s nearly there..

    I (being a tart) really don’t like the look of the bottle, more specifically the fitting end with the gauge and the knobs sticking out.

    I understand why they’ve done it though and the gun has some great features.  

    One thing I did think they should do is to make an alloy rest (nice fat tube) that screws into the front bottle hole.  That way when you’ve got it tethered at the rear you’ve got a proper hold.    Would solve the visual issue as well as the tethered bottle isn’t on the gun.

Since that’s just a regular paintball ASA all you would need is a 12gram to ASA converter like below. You can get them for $10 to $15

    I am in the market for another bullpup and was advised of this gun by Matt over at WWAG. However, they don’t have much info. I would appreciate an actual owner giving a detail review.

Wasnt really talking about the styling because as we all know taste is diffrent. More about fit and finnish. The side plates look poor. The air bottle is horrible with all those fittings sticking out. The air fitting under the breach looks ghetto. Thats just from a youtube video. 

    Doubt wood stocks react that badly or all hunting rifles would be polymer. Matter of price mainly imo.
