After approximately 6 months of countless emails and phones calls all over north america I have come to the conclusion GI Milsim 50. Cal devision is closed.

For months I've been trying to get my hands on replacement eyes for a nano and looking for a GI freak barrel kit for the nano as well. I search the web calling proshops from coast to coast and I found no help. I emailed gi milsim support site dozens of times in this 6 month period and no responce. At one point in my search I think I even accidently called someone very important at GI they put me in contact with someone in canada that. Was helping me find this items but was not able... I had shops call the dealer in the us and canada and did not find any replies. Proshops are unable to contact anyone about :50 cal markers nor replacement parts. I dug deeper and ended up calling the headquaters in canada and left a voice mail and no reply after which I called the number at gi sportz to see if the dealers could help me find atlease the barre and found nothing ! After 6 month I have call out the seach and declared gi milsim presumed dead..... I love 50 cal and the gi guns its sad to see such a great product go to waste. Ill still be shooting it cause its an awesome set up even with no eyes still rocks!

Yeap you can still get equipement but they aren't adding any new inventory... punisherpb has all their markers but they aren't getting any new one if you call them and ask about parts or support from gi milsim they will tell you they have no contact with anyone there

My local Academy has .50 cal paint and markers, maybe I need to pick them up so they'll be collectors items in 20 years. :lol:

That whole setup, with paint and air, will weigh around 15lbs out on the field.

I want .60 cal back. Then I could justify an SMG-60.

You can buy .62 on MCB from pwpaintball.

oldschool play is about sportsmanship and respect, oldschool gear is available on Ebay.
