I don't see why not buy one. They have some of the simplest maintanence. They. Supposedly perform aswell as any high-end, but don't have the fancy milling, or the huge company behind them.

Jack Rice frequents the Alien thread rather often on PBN. If you call, supposedly hes the one that normally answers the phone. Hes the owner of the company, he knows whats up. Shouldnt have any problems with the "small company"

The small company shouldn't be a problem, if that is what you're worried about.

Plus, you will be shooting an uncommon marker.

They might release a new market at cup.

If you are going for the Invasion, buy directly from Alien. A $60 barrel kit, and a free Virtue board. (I think)

At $650 I consider the Alien a high-end. I do believe they will release a new marker though.

well i do believe it preforms at a highend level never actually thought it as a highend but now you got me thinking and if they do release a new marker then the invasions price will go down that is if it a high end at mid end price

It will probably be another Independance like gun. (Was there high end)

The Invasion price went down a while ago from $700 to $650.

The story is that there will be no "new gun" at Cup.
The biggest news is that the guns are mostly shipping with Virtue boards now - no extra cost.



Invasions are at the anodizers - so next week for Purple accents and another round of "Joker" colored.
That's Purple bodies with Green accents.
We have been out of the silver bodies for several weeks - but will have those back in stock.
If you want to mix and match a bit give a call maybe the orange accents on a purple body.
Silver bodies w/purple, orange or green can all be done as well as the standard black accents
We also have some laser guns done by Kohn. Sorry still need to get those pics posted up - will get them up with the purple pics.





The most thoughtfully made guns - not the most expensive!

I want one sooo bad, but I can't scrape together the $710 for the gun+ barrel kit.
The joker colors sound awesome though.

if i had the money, an invasion would be my choice

I split my vote, half for etekgirl's body, half for her mind, because I respect a woman's mind just as much as her cans.

Invasions, are the most underrated gun in paintball. Even macdev isn't as underrated as alien is. I love em, but obviously I'm getting my a1 fly. I love my angels :)

Thanks, I'll talk with him again. Sent him a preproduction gun and then never got together to do a review on the final gun.
I would appreciate you also asking him to do it - once he is committed to doing it I will happily send him a gun - or two Posted Image

Everyone that wants to see the Alien Invasion review by Mike go to this thread http://www.techpb.co...7 and show your support for it. If enough people post he will review it.

I saw the pre-production video Mike did, and have been waiting for a review ever since.

I'm still trying to scrape enough cash together for one of those "joker" Invasions.

Why? I think it is a perfectly fair price for the marker. (Maybe even on the cheaper side for the quality of marker)

I can get a used independance from a friend of mine for $300, and I'm getting an S.E fly for $600, which comes with a 50/4500, a nokio, a parts kit the size of a small house, and an extra RE-BUILDABLE Ram.

Yes, but that is used, and Angel went out of business, making the parts kit a must for any Angel owner.

650 is a very reasonable price for a high end marker such as the invasion with a custom anodizing on it.
