In Topic: PHANTOM REVOLUTION NOW ON PAINTBALL GATEWAY

look at what it comes with... then you will understand the price... also, its a brand new gun... CCI needs to sell for higher to make back the cost of testing and prototyping.... in a few months the price will drop, until then, dont get your panties in a knott


I see 100% what it comes with, and I'm telling you that I don't see $730 in value... From what I've heard after reading everything there is on it on MCB, it's not a great gun for the price either.


you clearly missed the point of my post... most of these "small" companies need to mark up their product quite a bit when they first come out to make back the money lost in prototyping and testing... i would be willing to bet then within the next 5 months the price will drop to a more reasonable level...


Sorry but this is not true. I work for a small employee owned company and we discuss this all the time with the pricing of our products. Having an initial marked up price is a backslap to the initial buyers. I can understand a tiny initially higher price as early runs may be slightly more expensive to produce and a marginal drop in price as things get streamlined but you can not charge people for what your product R&D cost. A competent company has a budget set aside for this and product pricing should be based on cost.

That being said I would not pay $500 for a base revolution :( I really really was excited about this thing, not really thrilled with the result.

If you wait until Friday I will have the cash for this.


First with the cash gets priority. I'm in no hurry, this is just extra vacation money.




I would be all over it if you were interested in trades, but GLS.


I'd be open to a Retro 7.

I was expecting more interest in this.

^^^ I'm in the same boat. This looks like it will replace my phantom as my SC gun of choice.
