Looks like a really nice gun. Are they for sale? If so, surely this should be in the classified section? With the net shooting feature, will that need a different barrel and how big will the net be? Have you thought about adding a (removable) handle in front of the revolving ammo feeder for comfortable holding (like most paintball guns)? Otherwise, I am looking foward to seeing the finished product.

THat would be cool.BUt i live in Australia and it would be basically an uphill battle with the government to get it in. :(

Yeah. Fight the power :lol: This will be hard to get without a shooters license. But it'd be worth getting one just for the power range and possibilities.

Say, if this has a 1911 style grip. Will 1911 grip panels fit?

Edit:
Will this fit? 1911 carbine kit

Operating pressure seems to have taken a serious hike from 50-300psi to 50-1200psi :shock:

It's safe to use with unregulated CO2?

Because the original design was posted here on spudfiles, would members get some sort of discount? :wink:

My guess is not, but it is nonetheless a cool launcher.

i noticed that it says patent pending, what is the patant for? it cant be for the entire gun can it?

to be more accurate, it says "patents" which means there are more than one. how many are there?

Probably for the bore viewer?
He said that it was his idea I believe/

It was. He said it took him 3-4 years designing process and about a year or two to build the prototype. Am I right Solar? :wink:

5 years since I started, two years construction of latest designs. I was touring with Queensryche for three of those years and it took away from my actual development time.
The provisional covers the entire launcher, but the utilities will most likely be on the reloading mechanism, the bore sight, the adjustable velocity and adjustable choke system. I made everything system of the launcher out of plastics to start, then ramped things up to the point that it is a completely different launcher now. This is the 8th prototype I think. Only about four of them are still operational due to parts migration and swapping. The first 50 are priced at $777.00, but that price will most likely go up after field testing is complete. I have almost 45 pre-orders and am honoring that price for all the web guys from here and over at warpig. I have interest from some very high profile entities that may boost the price due to capabilities, but I will maintain a less expensive version for paintball as well as a starter base launcher that is a breech loader before it is upgraded.

How much for the base launcher?
