Going to try my best on this but I'm still trying to learn as much as I can so any help and feedback on this will be appreciated.

Where is the cheapest place to buy a cyborg?
There aren't many places that sell mac dev's products in the U.S. The 2 places are Grizzly's in California (no web site I know of) and Paintball kingdom located in North Carolina (paintballkingdom.com) Cyborgs will be around 600 dollars, Sonics will be 800. If you're looking to save some money try looking in the b/s/t sections for one.

What can I expect from my cyborg?
Expect lightness, amazing looks, speed, easy maintenance and great efficiency just to name a few.

Here are some reviews on the cyborg:

Sonic:

Also private message bunkertime and snow piranha for there opinions.

What should I do to keep my cyborg running smoothly?
Look into your cyborg manual for complete instructions on how to do it, and how often. I'll just highlite parts of the manual from Mac Dev here. Also Mac Dev recommends only the use of Dow 33 to lube your marker.

Bolt
Pull up on the pull pin until it clicks and slide the bolt out. Clean the bolt with a clean, dry soft cloth.

When putting the bolt back in, be sure the bottom of the pull pin is located correctly in the slot on the ram.

Ram
Be sure there is no remaining gas in the gun when cleaning the ram. Remove the bolt first and set it aside. Next unscrew the ram cap and gently pull out the ram. Remove the hammer from ram housing. Clean the old lube off the ram housing bore using a q tip. Clean the old lube off the ram housing and hammer using a clean lint free cloth. Use a clean q tip to re lubricate the bore of the ram housing with Dow 33. Use your fingers to re lube the o-rings on the hammer and hammer shaft. Slide the hammer back into the ram housing and re lube the o-rings on outside of the of the ram housing.

Now just slide the ram back into your marker and put the ram cap back on your marker. Recommended at least every 20,000 cycles.

Gladiator Inline Regular Maintenance
Degas the Cyborg of all pressurized gas, and remove the Gladiator from the Cyborg. Unscrew the Gladiator bottom works put it aside.

Place a clean rag on the tabletop and push the piston assembly out from the top. Separate the piston from the o-ring retainer and spring washers.

Clean the piston and o-ring retainer of old grease using a clean rag, don't leave any lint or cotton strands between the o-rings. Reapply Dow 33 to the o-rings.

Clean the piston bore using a q tip to remove all old grease.

Using a clean q tip apply silicon grease to the piston bore, just a small thin film is sufficient.

Slide the spring washers back onto the piston and lubricate the shaft with Dow 33. Now slide the o-ring retainer back onto the shaft.

Slide the piston etc back into the Gladiator top works and screw the bottom and top works back together before reinstalling the Gladiator onto your cyborg.

LPR Maintenance
The LPR should be cleaned and relubed at the same time as the Gladiator inline regulator. Remove the adjustor cap by unscrewing it from the LPR(counter clockwise), and remove the spring under the adjuster. Use a pair of needle nosed pliers to remove the LPR piston. Clean and re lubricate the piston bore using a q tip then clean and re lube the piston itself before replacing it back in the LPR body. Replace the LPR spring and adjuster cap. You will need to rechrono your marker after doing this.

Taken from the Mac Dev Cyborg manual-

What threading's are my cyborg?
The Cyborg's take autococker threaded barrels. The feed neck threading is aka/ Viking. The detents are also autococker threading.

What upgrades should I get for my cyborg?
I would recommend getting a clamping feed neck first. Since the stock one is pretty lousy.

New trigger if you don't like the stock one. Also a new board your micro switch would be wise you don't like the stock ones. NOX board, Tadao, or Virtue are available for cyborg markers.

You'll also need an ASA since they don't come from the factory with one. Shouldn't be a challange finding one to your liking. Mac Dev makes there own ASA if you wish to stick Mac Dev's products.

New grips, dye stickies, hybrid grips or whatever ones you want. Also you can get sonic grips for the regular cyborg.

Can also get the sonic bolt for the regular Cyborg. Sonic bolt has o-rings on it, Mac Dev says it helps shoot through barrel breaks.

Some people don't like the detents, I'm pretty positive Kila makes detents to fit the Cyborg. I reccomend derlin ball bearing detents to prevent wear on your bolt. -Bunkertime

I'd reccomend also getting the Cyborg tool kit. Lots of nice stuff to help fix your cyborg and do regular maintinace on it.

Any part on the cyborg you can basicaly buy for the regular cyborg. Except the stock Cyborg eye covers are larger then the Sonic's, so you will have to cut the grips a little bit. -Bunkertime

More details can be found here in osta the pimp's thread:
http://www.paintballforum.com/forum/showthread.php?t=117064

How efficient will my Cyborg be?
Expect to get around 2000 shots off a 68/4500 fill.

How light is the Cyborg?
Around 2.2 pounds with barrel.

How fast is it?
Mac Dev claims a true 30 bps.

Video can be found from Mac Dev's site here:
http://www.macdev.net/Video/Cyborg05.wmv

What pressure does it operate at?
200 psi operating and 50 psi cocking.

Do they come with eyes?
Yes, they are called Cyber ABS and expect zero chops when using them.

What colors do they come in?
Regular cyborgs come in blue to black fade, red to black fade, yellow to black fade, silver to black fade, and solid black.

Sonics come in silver-blue-black tri fade, silver-red-black tri fade, pink to silver fade, blue to silver fade. solid black, rasta, silver to cobalt fade, sunset fade, and silvio silver.

What's the difference between the Sonic Cyborg and the regular Cyborg?
Sonic is the more higher end marker and the cyborg is more of the mid ranged.

Also the Sonic comes with different milling, color choices, Sonic Claw, different grips, Circuit board with Cybersense 2, auto power on/off and new trigger filter. Performance based milling increasing ram cycle speed 17%.

Which should I buy the Sonic or the regular Cyborg?
In my opinion if you have the money buy the Sonic. Has the features you're going to eventually want.

But if you're low on cash get the regular Cyborg. Either choice is a great one.

How do I turn on/off my Cyborg/ How do I disable the eyes?
Hold in the button located on the back of the grip frame until it blinks/chimes one time (around 1 second). Hold in the button untill it blinks/chimes twice to turn it off. And hold it in until it blinks/chimes 3 times to disable eyes.

How adjustable is the trigger?
The trigger has 3 different adjustments. Post travel length, when the micro switch is activated, and trigger pull tension.

Where can I get an online manual?
http://www.macdev.net/us/support.htm

Should have everyone you'll need.

Which dipswitches do what?
The stock settings are the best in most cases and be careful switching them. Mac Dev says use a small screw driver(flat headed would be best in my opinion). They also say not to push downward on the switches only across.

This picture is taken from the Cyborg Manual:

Don't bother with switches 7 and 8. Mac Dev says they are used by the factory and there's no use in switching them around.

Post anything I should add/take out, fix or feedback on it. Hopefully this will help any people that were thinking on buying a Cyborg actually buy one :D

Also thanks Bunkertime for your help in the upgrade part.

Put the actual pprice on the cyborgs because PBK is ending the sale suposedly when they get their next shipment in from MacDev
In the colors section the silvio silver is not a fade its a solid color. Thats what I've found so far...

I was in the middle of mine but you got to it first. Post a link to the manual, PBK has one. I'm making an upgrade thread right now. Almost finished.

any part on the sonic you can basicly buy for the reg. cyborg


There is also a virtue board for the cyborg which is nice


you can get sonic grips for the cyborg. yet the stock cyborg eye covers are larger then sonics, so u will have to cut the grips a little

Cyborgs take Cocker threaded detents. I recomend a Derlin ball bearing detent to prevent wear on your bolt
