they are made in australia so if they are out of stock it takes some time for them to get here. Every once in awhile someone's eyes will break on them, or a board will go on the fritz (i have read of those happening like 2x EVER, in all the useage of borgs) there are no upgrades? That makes some ppl angry. It's not as good as a sonic. Um, the cost close to $1000, which is a lot to save up?

Hell, i can't seem to find one thats of any importance. Maybe bunkertime can post something. He owns one and probably has a few nitpicking things w/ the gun. There was a thread on nation about this. PPl couldn't find much, most was the occasional break, which Macdev fixed.

Just the lack of service places in the US. I know pbk is one, but I can't think of anyone else off hand.

There are like 3-4 authorized MacDev Dealers in the US, cause They don't want dealers giving macdev a bad name or ne thing.

As for bad things... the only bad things i can think of is the reg borg doesn't come w/ a locking feed neck, and both borgs come w/ 120 or so gram switches stock (to keep out the bounce).

but other then that, i have never found a problem with a borg or any macdev product.

Ofcourse.

The only problem i have found so far is that the battery is a little loose inside the grips, and the little Sound maker was only stuck to the board with double sided tape

accually. The speaker (or sound maker as put by OTMB) is free hanging. There is really no need for it to be attached, I just put it up w/ the Noid hose that comes down into the body, and it's fine

and the battery will rattle around a little like in any gun w/ a free moving battery.

and spud; Most people accually upgrade to an 80gram switch instead of a 25 b/c the 80 gram switch is like sex and won't bounce like a bat outta hell like a 25 gram will.

heh.. only complaint that i have is that the anno is so damn shiney that if you barely touch it when your hands are dirty you get finger prints all over it.. I shot a case and a half yesterday and not a single break or problem with the gun. As long as you take care of it, it will take care of you. : )

they arent heavy, but they are very compact so they feel kind of like a trix in terms of weight(at least to me).

2.2lbs exactly, I think.

Don't they also use a hose and barbs? Which are prone to breaking.

wow, read the post first dude.
j/k
i can see how that could be misunderstood, what i meant was that because they are so compact there weight is more concentrated then other markers. Which(in my case) makes it feel heavier then it actually is. In other words, i refrencing to the feel and not the weight of the marker.

I am well aware of how light they are as i do own one after all.

yeah, opps....oh well, still got my point across.

if your ok with the electronics and trigger then youll love the gat, it shoots well above its price(and you can always get a new trigger and eventually get tadao or predator).

MacDev Support - NOT the best

It's been over a week where I've sent an e-mail to MacDev tech support and have yet to hear anything!!! My sons and I have purchased several paintball items from them. (1 Marker and 3 tanks) I have had problems with the Conquest Regulator and sent an e-mail over a week ago and have yet to hear from them. If I would have to say, out of the other paintball manufacturers out there that I deal with, this is the worst I have seen. If they want to keep the customers they have now, they should try and support those owners. I'm NOT IMPRESSED!!! WORD OF MOUTH GOES ALONG WAY and I'll pass this message on to my fellow paintball players.

yeah, its a family business. which is no excuse, just a reason.

Rick Gaud: you should try calling Paintball Kingdom instead. Macdev in my experience doesnt have great customer service and even if they had returned your emails you would have had to ship it to Australia. PBK is a great place, does quality work and is located somewhere in the midwest(i forget were).

The only macdev products that i have tried is the Cyborg(which i currently own) and although i hear great things about their airtanks i doubt i will buy another macdev product since my experience with the cyborg has been very bad.
