I would like to buy:

a blackcell ion, or some other sort of spec ops longbow or qbow. I am interested in any offer; the worst thing I can say is no! :)

I do realize I am new here, so if anyone wants some sort of proof of my legit-ness, just pm me. I have been playing paintball for several years now, and am getting tired of my 98 custom lol I have spent well over $1000 modifying it over the last 8 years of my owning it, and I am ready to move on :p

Please feel free to pm me or ask questions!!

1st thing- The Longbow isn't good. At all. The Longbow is literally a piece of junk, overweight, and shoots just as straight as any marker. (Except for Brass Eagle :p )

2nd thing, why don't you just buy it at the website?
They're NOT SELLING YET, you have to pre-order. They'll ship in 4 weeks.

But I STRONGLY urge you to change your mind, Spec Ops is BS.

...well... way to be nice about it?

first of all, the long bow is actually an AGD tac one with alot of modifications, or you can put the mods on an Ion, which I would be fine with as well. Also, if I wanted to buy it new, I would; I am looking for it used. So if you are comparing the tac one to a brass eagle, you may just know nothing of what your talking about.

And If they haven't sold it yet, how could you know anything about how it shoots, it's being junk, etc.?

This is what Wikipedia has to say about it if you don't believe me:

Special Ops AGD Longbow/Q-Bow

Customized for the paintball "sniper", this maker is a Special Ops modified Air Gun Designs (AGD) Tac-One. The customizations include a horizontal 21 shot feed loader, and an air-through stock that feeds air through the stock rather than underneath the gun by the grip.

An alternate version of the Longbow is the Q-bow. This replaces the interchangeable magazines with a pod-loader style device called the Q-loader.

The longbow was discontinued after AGD revised the design of the gun's body. Consequentally, the Longbow body was unable to attach to the marker. However, Longbow kits are still produced for old style Tac-One bodies.

[edit] Blackcell Ion

Eventually, the Longbow kit was made for the Smart Parts Ion, marketed as the Blackcell Ion. Modified with a body kit, stock, longer barrel, and Longbow or Q-bow kit, this allowed similar feel and performance to the Tac-One version with a cheaper price tag and an electronic trigger. This is done to give a more woodsball/milsim feel to the otherwise Speedball-oriented Ion, although the marker remains internally identical to the original.
:source: Special Ops Paintball - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The reason I want it is because of the feel... I don't necessarily care about how light it is, I will be using it for woods games which is all I play. I shouldn't really have to defend my reasoning for wanting one... no wonder there aren't many people on this forum :eek:

So if you have any evidence on why I should not go with a tac one or an ion (I am leaning towards the ion... it's much cheaper) please let me know, because I would like some actual advice on this. Otherwise, if anyone has any offers, please post them up!!

Thanks.

Q-bow for sale

My Q-bow is for sale on ebay

ebay listing


If anyone would like to question the effectiveness of the Q-bow...please come on out to my field and play.

This marker is simply the best I have ever used, and I have played for 20 years with 6 different markers.

It's quiet
No stupid hopper on top
Shoots straight
Light
Rarely jams
point and shoot accuracy is unmatched and frankly the "hidden secret" of the Q-bow that is rarely talked about. What I mean by this i show quickly you can raise the marker to your shoulder, spot your target in the site and shoot. There is no marker that is as quick or quite as the Q-bow for achieving this. This is really why the gun is so effective.
