Not having a C-3 in my hands yet this is just more speculation, but converting the pump to a semi-auto, for experimental gratification, may be easy with something like a Palmer ram and a little plumbing.

I will also confirm the semi version. Spoke to a person on the phone about this, no release date but it is coming.

Is God real? You'll find out when you die.

Okay, I don't have a clever signature zinger. So sue me.

hm...confirmation of the semi version is making me rethink the C3.  Is it for sure that it will be released next fall, or is that just a guess?

hey Enos u got a proto type rail done yet? i got some ideas, i just dont have the tools to make it happen, maybe i'll try to make a picture on the computer of what my idea is. the only thing im worried about is how close the screws are to where the paintball/barrel goes; more so in the far back screw than the front two.

From monkeying around with mine, I'm going to say that its as accurate as any other marker I've shot. There's no real difference. Its consistant thanks to the propane, and it shoots rather nicely. Kind of odd to not have a hamer slamming into anything though. Theres a different feel to it when you shoot it...I like it alot.

Dry firing is ludicrously loud.

With paint I really think it sounds like a .22. It has a sharp crack to it, not the normal sound of a paintgun.

Indeed.  Let's not turn a perfectly good technical discussion into a moronic sniper debate.

Please - no more sniper yay/nay posts in this thread. 

Thank you.
