Anyone ever see this before?
I was just about to post about this. I saw it on Action Village yesterday.

Nope, but I think it is the same idea, mag fed instead of hopper.
It's basically a mag fed A-5.
What makes it like an A5? Just because it's an inline blowback?
Made in USA - it matters.
But the real question is: Is it any good?
It's an A-5 clone. It uses the same internal design, same gripframe mounting, same end cap, etc. Just like the PCS US-5.Originally Posted by paint magnet
If it works like I think it should work it'd be kind of neat to tool around with. I can't really say my hopper bothers me enough in woods to buy a marker purely because it's mag fed.
Kind of a cool alternative to playing stock class or limited style play. Instead of 10 or 15 round feedtubes, you got a 18rd mag. It'd be a cool way to play. Get a harness that holds M-16 mags and snag a couple extra mags for it. Slap a stock on and run a remote. I'm considering it. I mean, it's the A-5 design so it's not a crappy stacked tube Ariakon/Armotech type thing. It seems like it's so similar in design that it should bear the same reliability. It takes all A-5 stocks, and it might even take A-5 internals like powertubes and bolts. The frame looks like it can have a regular A-5 or Egrip frame slapped right on too.
BTW, I said crappy Ariakon/Armotech thing because they are $400-600 spyder clones. Total bullcrap.
The people who made the AT still did it right. The AT line of guns had a 25 round clip, and then a 60 round reservoir that was cleverly disguised underneath the barrel. That and it had a mechanical full auto.
The trinity gun is still pretty neat though.
Yea the ATS is definitely sweet. But the lowest you can get it for is $465 and the mags are $70 a peice. I wonder how much these mags will be. If they can get them to be cheap (like $20-30 a peice) it could be a sweet deal. The gun and 5 mags would cost like $400. Stock = $50, remote = $30. Total is under $500.

its a a5 internal / mag fed / phantom......
RAP4 also has the same gun (dressed for full scenario/training)
They have a video of the T68 Gen5 Mag fed marker in action here.
Phantom? No, it's nothing like a Phantom.Originally Posted by zipity_Bop
And yea I've seen those T68's. They're the exact same thing lol. But they're way more expensive and I don't think they take A-5 stocks. Other than that yeah, they're also A-5 clones. And damn, the mags are expensive, although not too far out of the $30 range. $40 a mag will add up though.

well it looks like th m16 phantom grips?Originally Posted by warbeak2099
It has m16 grips so it's a phantom clone? Uh no. That's like saying that any gun that uses .45 grips is the same.Originally Posted by zipity_Bop
It looks kinda wierd with no iron sights....
