yah, It is pretty much a droid and Ego put together but that is fine. At least they don't have a violent pin going back and forth at 30bps to get gunked up in dirt. Price is a bit steep being $50 more for an Ego or Geo but heh, We will see. I am not to crazy about a barrel back AND an insert seems a bit unnesscery and just added weight or price.

Also for real tho? You can go down there and buy that gun and get a free barrel kit? Seems far fetched. If it is true, I bet it is not that New macdev kit.

The barrel back + insert allows you to use the kit with multiple markers simply by purchasing the barrel back that possesses the correct threads for that marker. I don't think a couple ounces are going to outweigh that benefit for people who have non-autococker threaded markers.

I'm pretty sure you just heard the representative from Macdev say that you get a barrel kit, did you not.. ? I don't understand how it's far fetched at all if you heard it straight from the source. Macdev is a great company.

pre-ordered mine in gloss green. outstanding pre-order deal. Shift barrel kit is a $150 value, plus the case they provide for that gun is nice too....not some card board box...almost like a cross between and ego case and a dm9 case. Going to have so much fun with my 2 new markers!

I am impressed with the cyborg, not really a new design but taking some great concepts and putting them in to a single gun. The way the breach opens reminds me of an angel, spimplicty of an ego along with the looks, they have also added a nice board to it. This is very well thought out.

I guess so.... i mean if I just saw it on a field and didn't get much timet to "look at it" i would assume it would be an ego 07 or something..........

Are there any videos of it shooting yet? I want to see what it can do before I start judging it... I assume that it will be a great marker because its comming from macdev.

man I wish I could afford taht gun haha, cant barely afford to paly but yeha that gun does look very nice. I like the idea of no way to get dirt into the moving parts and reg that would be very helpful for scenario play and woodsball escpecially.

This poppit marker will stomp on both markers planet eclipse just came out w/, the droid was so nice that many people gave up their sl8ers for it after firing one.

Mike didn't look really interested but he was squinting I imagine the sun was just in his eyes.

i do wish it was 2 tone like have a main body color and maybe a different color reg, eye covers, barrel tip.... like the ego8's were the constant one color makes the marker look pretty bland

Hey one question... There is not many Mac's rolling around Germany, its pretty rare to ever see one... I can only base what I have seen in pictures, articles and videos like Mikes... But answer me this question "if anyone knows"

Would there be any reason to buy a Mac over a Ego 09'?

To me the guns look almost identical, and I really am not a spool or poppet fanboi of either. As long as the marker works I could really care less.. So beyond that, what would make me spend a couple hundred more for a Mac?

most of the sites i have seen are selling the ego9 for like 50 dollars less than the cyborg is advertised at...otherwise just look at the benefits stated in the video for the gun I havnt had a chance to get my hands on either yet since Im far from florida but I would bet that the Macdev shoots smoother with much less kick and just feels nicer in the hands. Honestly when you get above the 700 dollar mark in paintball guns it's pretty much a choice of personal preference they will all perform well.....except the shocker thats a piece of shit.
