Just when you think you're out, they suck you right back in.....



Secksy but muy $$$$$$$!

I think ANS is selling them pre-sale for $500+

Still, I guess it's proof that you just can't keep a good platform down!

I really wish I was still playing paintball.

Took a hike in some trails today. Just kept thinking how awesome it would be to have a paintball game out in the woods again with the deep creeks.

Yeah, $549 to be exact.

Originally I thought "Damn, that's WAY high" and I still think it's high for an A/C these days, but not as much as I first thought.

They've made some pretty nice improvements during the hiatus. It's already a mid-block, the stock pneus look pretty solid. it's essentially a brand-new Karni w/o electronics. I could justify $500 with electronics and an eye, but not for a mech. Used Karnis still go for that price on e-bay.

Money. About to graduate. Got to make sure to save money for any travels and having to pay for life and loans. Once I get a job and find a good place to go, I will probably get back into it.

Yep, crossover just got a much lower price!

That Autococker is real nice.  Just a note:  the new cocker is not compatible with old parts and upgrades.  (I haven't confirmed ALL upgrades though).

Makes sense. If I were Empire, I don't think I'd consider reverse compatibility either. Market is simply too flooded and it'd be tough to make any money that way. Ought to be interesting to see if AKALMP, Eclipse, and Shocktech get onboard with it.

That is really tempting.
*edit* $649.00 shipped (to here), won't ship until June.  Comes with a 6 piece barrel kit too, pretty nice.

Is empire taking over the industry? I was really disappointed to hear that Angel has gone out. I liked Evil way back and they are gone. I love my Ion but smart parts is dead. When the mini was taken over by empire, I was surprised.

Empire and Invert were the same company from my understanding. Both are/were Kee Action Sports (800 Paintball/NJ Paintball Supply) from the beginning IIRC. Honestly, The field is getting back to where it was shortly after the semi-auto revolution in the early 90's. You're going to have a few big marker manufacturers (DYE, Kee, Tippmann, Kingman, Eclipse, etc) leaving the field open for others to make upgrades (boards, barrels, bolts, etc)

Back in the early 90's, semi-auto tech combined with constant air meant everyone and their brother were making semi-auto paintball markers. Then the market flooded and collapse. Then you had the electro revolution and again, the market flooded and collapsed. Each time, those that survived made high quality products and continued to innovate. I think you'll find this to be the ongoing cycle for some time. Now your sub-bubble is the mag-fed stuff. Same will go for the next "big" electro improvement.

Think its pretty cool, but out of my price range anytime soon. I would also rather have it as a double frame. Wonder if they will be bring this back as an electro as well???

You are officially off the "cool" list. Real 'cockers use a single .45 slider. End of discussion.

An electro version would be nice though.
