hahaha, all you would have to do is add an ak or ar-15 stock to this to change it's profile. The breech load variant also has more of a rifle look. I wonder about your kiddy comment.... I don't recall ever seeing small children playing with grenade launchers.... yet.... We were talking about making ...

hahaha, I already have two daughters. I had to build the launcher before they became teenagers to freak out all the boys they bring home to meet papa.

Well, ALMOST making my own cannons. Another 9 days before production begins full scale. The details are just taking way to long. I'm sure there will be changes after the first run anyways, but I designed the gun to be adaptable for that. I'm certain we can come up with a solution for you Aussies as ...

Thanks guys... the bands...well... Queesnryche, Dream Theater, Fates Warning, Echo7, and Stone Temple Pilots. In that time I had a chance to hang out with Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Dio, Disturbed and members of Heart, Alice in Chains, Yes and Tangerine dream. I missed my chance to meet Ozzy... :-( ...

I'm sure we can figure something out Twitch. As far as thinking it out, I have spent five years developing and testing different prototypes to come up with something that I am proud of. That may seem like a long time, but I was running two other companies and touring around the country with a rock b...

The true reason that the Eclipse semi auto has a muzzle break is to allow for inspection of the muzzle in case someone sticks it into the mud and gets dirt and rocks compacted into the barrel. It makes the removal a lot easier with the break holes drilled out. We will be using a spring load CAR styl...

Yes, the conversion kit will be available very soon after the initial launch, no pun intended.

I would only care if someone started selling knock offs. It would cost someone a lot more to make a one off instead of purchasing one of my finished launchers. I will be selling the parts eventually and have no doubt that a lot of variations will appear. Luckily I have the backing to defend my paten...

What about the density of the object? I am waiting for the density numbers for a foam round. I am sure this delivers (or disperses) energy differently than a potato. Thanks for the info.

Any chance of calculating impact of these at say 225 fps? How about for a 1.5" that weighs in at 32 grams?

Does anyone know how I can get my pneumatic semi auto 40mm inspected for Aussie requirements? What if it is sold as a shark repellent cannister launcher? This is one of our markets. Anyone interested in being our Aussie rep?

Twitch: Sorry, but at 4:30 am here I was a little out of it... As far as I know I could ship to you. I did have the indexer prototype seized by the Ministry of Defense in Bimini, but got it back the next day after they realized what it was being used for. If you could check on the laws for me down t...

Yes, biodegradable sabot rounds are at hand once I find the extruder large enough. Also yes, I will be offering other accessories.

There are many paintguns on the market that go for substantially more. This launcher is also designed to be used for other purposes as well. In some markets I could easily charge $2500 for it's utility, but I want to provide a less expensive alternative for people who want a launcher that is actuall...

I will start taking pre-orders from my web site as soon as this happens. I have been told Monday or Tuesday.The pre-order list will ru...
