Well if it can reliably work as well as it shows in the demo then I'm sure people would buy it.

I have doubts on it being allowed on commerical paintball fields against players in a direct fire mode though. Perhaps indirect fire and anti-tank though.

Whats the attorney for? Patents?

Okay..I officially like it.

I would not buy one, but I like it...

Could you get it to shoot lead slugs at 300 psi??
Could it take higher pressures??

If you could build one that runs off higher pressures you could get a foothold on the regular "airgun" market.
This would outdo all existing socalled "large bore" air-rifles like the Drulov Rada and the Dragonslayer.

A lot of steroids
we're about talking Barry Bonds here.

anyway, i love the gun, and it seems like a wonderfull idea. when i first watched the video, i could only concentrate on the 3rd person veiw, and i kept thinking that the wadding was the paintball (didnt know it was a shotgun type thing :oops: ) and i was like" wow, that sucks". but then i looked at the target screen, and i was like "HOLY crap!"

ill show it to some of my paintballing friends and see what they think

I am not aware of the Drulov Rada or the Dragonslayer, I will check them out.

Yes, a patent attorney, a commercial liability attorney and a business law attorney..... *sigh*...

anyways, it is designed to launch much heavier rounds than paintballs, but we are still in the testing phase with those. I will post some new videos when they are available of other range tests.

Thanks for all the good comments.

So its belt fed, nice! Can you use a 100 or more round belt? The thing needs a longer barrel, and a stock like a rifle (like the M1 not the M16) would be a nice option.

And the dragonslayer is a .45 or .50cal per-charge pneumatic air rifle, this thing would pose no threat to it or any other large bore air rifles.

It has interchangeable barrels and volume chambers. Yes, it could do an infinite belt as long as you do not have a vetical rise that is too much for the springs. Not sure how far that is yet, but it will also have replaceable springs for more drive power. I like the M1 look too. I might offer adapters to fit ak-47 or ar-15 stocks.

the only thing i dont like about it is its too "shiny" i think it would look better as matte black with blue highlights or something. but chrome is good also, just not on the feild.

It needs to be blued; no gun should be with out bluing, unless it browned.

I don’t like pistol grips on long arms, but I may have to make an exception, that is if it’s reasonably priced. I.e. less than $100u.s.

But all in all, that got to be one of the slickest guns I’ve seen on here in a long while!

you should make a beta c magazine for the gun, then you could use it for paintball, otherwise once you run ou of shells you're screwed. The beta c would give you a lot more shot. Also, does your gun shoot anything else other than paintball.

Dark grey personally.

If paintballers go for it it'll be woodsballers so no shiny guns.

Do you have any clearer pictures of it?

Cool to see you here Solar. I've been on the warpig site for a while and have been eagerly awaiting this gun.I gotta hand it to ya my single shot shotgun launcher is looking real pale in comparison.I'd be intersted in getting my hands on a parts kit when they become available.I'm mostly poor(the plight of every paintballer) but can definetly find some cash to buy one.Good job and can't wait to see more.
